3089: Item Generation & Armed Robots!

Hey all,

Lots of work making its way into 3089. Robots now can be outfitted with weapons (which they will raise, aim & fire when threatened):

I’ve also got melee weapons working for the player — that sword can be “charged up” with the right mouse button for a strong attack πŸ™‚ The weapon model is currently a placeholder. I’ve also got enemy types without legs. I have a handful of new enemy models waiting to be implemented in a future update!

I’ve got lots of the inventory stuff coming along nicely. All of the weapon-specific item statistics are implemented (except ammo) — next will be implementing the different skills!

Lots of work to do — so I’m going to get right on it! I’m currently working on vending (e.g. going to a store and buying goodies). I’m still shooting for an alpha version late January. Thank you all for following my progress πŸ™‚

  1. So, maybe a bit late, but I remembered your biome post of a while back and saw this post here… maybe it can inspire you? http://www.gaslampgames.com/2012/12/12/flora/
    Although, it seems like you have passed that point with flying colors already haha, still sometimes thinking about this game and waiting on it in the back of my head, but I am not closely following your blog, sorry ^^

    Also: this update looks very cool! I see lots of new and improved stuff, great πŸ™‚

    • That idea is pretty neat & I haven’t finished the biome stuff yet. Although, I want the world to end up feeling a bit more alien and not the usual set of Earthly biomes. For instance, I want to bring back the poisonous biomes & maybe add some more, like radioactive biomes will plants that attack if you get too close πŸ˜›

      Thank you for stopping by at least — lots of work is being done to 3089 and progress is happening faster than this blog may show. I just like coding more than posting, but I try to get to it once and awhile πŸ˜‰

  2. Great update, can’t wait for the next update πŸ™‚

    Love the look of that hovering robot there.. kind of cute almost πŸ™‚

    • I may have another update early next week. I’m working on vendors, buildings & the heads-up display. I’ve been really trying to fill in the big missing pieces with a solid foundation (so soon it will just be all about adding content). Therefore, there isn’t much pretty stuff to show off yet, but lots of work is being done.
