Welcome to the first weeks news for The Steam Punk! This week the new design has begun, along with the development of the vehicles. The items system is still being built but wont be released till after the new design has been released anyway.
First off, the new design. As you will have noticed, the website hasnt got the same look as the images on this ModDB page, this is because I have started a new design and havent started implementing the new images into the game yet, doing all this means when I switch over to flash for the downloadable version (which is at least a few weeks off). Having the images for the site just exported flash images means they will be the same and I can make the site and the flash game alot quicker. I havent totally agreed with myself on what I want the new site to look like yet so dont expect that done soon either.
The vehicles isnt too important yet, so its going to be done when everything else is. If any of you happen to play Gaia Online then you will already know of the sort of game this will be, and even more so with the vehicles since they will be customizable (mainly the basic shape and colour) and you will start off with one of your choice. The vehicles will also be used in a racing game similar to gaia's, but mine will be getting the fastest time you can rather than racing with others, for a start anyway.
The items system is sort of already there, but just for health, there is no way to regenerate your spell points yet. The items will all boost something in your stats, Im currently looking for Ideas on what other items to make.
Please comment if you have any problems, currently I have heard from a couple of people having problems logging in after registering but that might not be happeneing to everyone.
