Quick release alert: v0.122 Ship Batch 3 of 7: 14 Ships!
« on: May 03, 2017, 05:25:51 PM »
Release notes: https://wiki.arcengames.com/index.php?title=AI_War_2:Earlier_Than_Early_Alpha#Version_0.122_Ship_Batch_3_of_7:_14_Ships.21

Not only does this have a bunch of new ships from Keith, but Cinth has wired up a variety of ships and icons that Blue previously completed (and that Cinth previously did a lot of shader prepping and LOD work and so on with) so that now you can see more than just little rocks with names floating around. ;)

There are still plenty of rocks with names, but the pet rocks will be dwindling in number over the rest of this month.

The Spider ship looks pretty awesome. Will Mark V spiders be Tarantulas?

Ahahaha.

We don't tend to change the names of the ships when they hit Mark V -- we did some in the past, but try to avoid that now.

I meant more "Will the model look like a giant tarantula"

For fleet ships we're just using one model for all five marks.

Guardians have different models for each mark, though. I dunno what the Widow (i.e. Spider) Guardian is going to look like, but I'm guessing it won't look friendly.

Lure them in close with cuteness.

He always was playing a different map type.

"Chris Park moved Allow zooming the view in to the mouse position (ala Classic). from Normal priority to Limbo". Really? That's too bad.

It's on Keith's list rather than mine, now.  All is well. :)

Man, .123 is looking like an amazing release. So many cool features! I want to get my hands on the new Mapgen stuff in particular, to see if it opens up new creative possibilities. Tell me we're looking at getting it out soon!

I'm done with the batch #4 units, we're just trying to get zoom-to-cursor to work and fix a couple visualization bugs.

Yeah, we should be hitting today as the release date, I think.  Remaining bugs pending -- we'll see which ones we can fix versus just releasing with them for now.
