Post news RSS VioFlem - Wednesday Secrets #2

New composer, fried computers, and 90% finished models. Was a good week.

Posted by on

I set a goal to post an update every Wednesday, but not only that I set a goal to always have some media for y'all to look at. Well I had no idea if this was even possible to tell the truth, but it looks like we're going strong!

What happened this past week?

A lot of really cool stuff happened this week actually. Some fortune and some mis-fortune as is common with development, but all around it's been a cool week.

First off, we brought a new team member on board to compose music for us! MtM0201 is in the process of writing music specifically for the DMSS that was demonstrated in last weeks update. If you haven't heard his stuff, go check it out! He wrote the music that opens every single Modcast here on ModDB, so his stuff is quality for sure.

The Private Chexter player model by Jerick is very close to being completed, with only his armor needing to be completed. He'll be rigged and in game very soon, so that's great news! No more vanilla HL2 models.

As for the misfortune, our mapper ajhallmon had some bad luck with his computer... it fried. So we currently don't have a mapper. Ah well, he's still around to help with the management though.

What do we have to look at this week?

Here's a short clip to show off a very early third-person camera! Even though it's very early and nowhere near being complete, it's a milestone for us because it's the first thing actually implemented in game.

Seems, to be a pain in the *** to aim, huh? :D

Nice job.

Thank you. The camera will get an overhaul very soon. It wont work like the traditional third person camera at all.

I think the It'd be better if the third person view was higher, so you could aim a little bit easier.

The camera will be brought back quite a bit.

Let me rephrase that: Think of the 3rd person view from Star-Wars battlefront 2. I Found it to be very easy to aim with.

Third Person? WHY?!? Chex quest has never been 3rd person, so why start now?

:P If you want to play Chex Quest, play Chex Quest. VioFlem is no clone of Chex Quest. It's better. Why make something that's already made? ;)

Just because you use some of the same mechanics from the original that anybody who knows what this mod is about is surely used to now doesn't really mean that you're making something that's already been made...

That aside, I'm not entirely sure about the camera decision since I was very much hoping for this to be an FPS, but I'll see where you go with it. It could be much better than I originally expected, who knows?

;) Don't get me wrong, I totally understand that VioFlem's changing a lot and it's pushing against what a lot of you think it should be. I'm just trying to get you guys also in the mind frame that it's different than what you think it is. I want to get rid of any pre-conceived conceptions about what VioFlem is as soon as possible.

I'm not slamming you guys personally, but I'm making sure that y'all realize as soon as possible that this isn't Chex Quest.

You follow?
