Report RSS Showrooms and Galaxy Generation

Recent progress with Voidnex: Frontier, detailing the starship showroom and galaxy generation system.

Starship Showroom:

Recently we have been working on a starship showroom for use in buying new starships or selecting one of the players already owned ships. The scene is now more or less complete and you can see an example of it in the youtube video below:

Galaxy generation:

A large part of Voidnex: Frontier revolves around a procedurally generated game map / galaxy, ensuring that the player has a different experience each time they play. The generation process is based on a black and white bitmap that serves as a density map to determine the likelihood of a star system appearing in a given location. Next systems are recursively divided up into different sectors with warp lanes between sectors and the central game system, ensuring that all systems in the galaxy can be reached, even if it might take a long time!
