The Pioneers : surviving desolation is an upcoming 3D space survival/simulation indie video game where players will have to manage a bunch of specialists crashed on Io. From the macro management of a space station to the micro management of the characters, The Pioneers will challenge players to survive in a harsh and unforgiving environment.
Changelog v 0.1.7 (2019.09.01)
Sculpting of an 8 km² terrain that contains 64 tiles.
Environment is now composed from 3 lights : one from the stars, one from the sun and one from Jupiter. Sun and Jupiter lighting depend on the sun positions. Composition of those lights depends of the diurnal cycle.
Creation of an Unlit shader for Jupiter with the Fresnel effect in order to fake the sun shadow. The shadow’s movement is calculated from the sun position.
Creation of a progressive solar eclipse and sunrise.
Research work on the character’s hair.
New graphical work on the UI “station inventory” that will allow for the management of resources.
Improvement of the “walk” animation.
