    Looks nice as always, but doesn't that sand texture suggest nothing should be growing there? The soil looks pretty damn loose.

    Practised water etc. again. It's shitty, because it takes me hours upon hours to render and practise, but I never get it right. Animated it looks ok, but 4 hours rendering for one small part of a larger map is simply not acceptable... I will have to look for different rendering techniques in the future

    Thanks to those who brofisted the post above, but I would be more interested in if you actually find this is some plausible location? Does this look believable, is there some 4th wall breaking stuff? Is it even feasible to do so much custom art? And to the second screen, does that look like D&D Underdark to you?

    I like the first, looks like big secret bunker complex/secret ruined lab. Ground and walls are too shiny and spotless, needs more grunge, rust and rot. I would add some more darkness, unless it is a location that's supposed to still have light because it hans't broke it or has automated repair (think Sierra Army Depot).

    The second looks unfallouty (but gorgerous) because of the pallete, especially that green stuff (fungus?) and the blue rock. I suggest looking at some real-life caves and the usual Fallout palette.

    The "blue rock" is actually water. :o As said, I have to learn how to do that right.

    What Remains is on hold till I get some very crucial files from people who are inactive at the moment. :(

    I am not lazy however and use the engine for some other stuff. Since I created lots of graphics that were obsolete for What Remains, I decided to create another short thing.

    So, this is an adventure, feauturing parts from H.P. Lovecrafts "The Outsider" and the "Walker of the Waste" Class from D&D (it spreads the wasteland wherever it may walk). It is pretty unique as an RPG, based on wat I as a writer and graphics guy can do. If all goes well I will release the basic game of this for free and ask for more chapters on kickstarter. :)

    This doesnt mean that What Remains is dead, it just doesnt have people working on atm.

    I know the story with not dead mods. :M

    But your new project sounds p. interesting. Good to do something new now and then anyway. Keep things fresh.

    It was born out of a "fuck it, I finally want to release something!" mood. So, instead of relying on other people, I took the stuff I can atleast into all on my own and make something playable. Everything on that new project relies ENTIRELY on my own and I am only myself to blame for delays. :P Since I know the FOnline Engine, it was an easy step.

    Just imagine the screen of the desert scrubs I posted a page before with a protagonist spreading it all along a generic fantasy setting. You can't initiate conversation with anything at the start of the game and just do what you, think of doing automatically what an undead does in generic D&D but with a lot of branching etc. :)

    Also, important. What Remains is not dead.

    If you need some help and more of my insane ideas, just ask. BTW, can you send me a copy of that stuff I sent you? I want to guard some of these ideas for some writting ideas I have.

    Just curious: Did Cvet ever estabilish if the FOnline engine can be used for commercial games and for what terms? (say, Cvet getting some monies, he did make it and whatnot)

    Also, I really wish Fallout 2 Total Conversions like Fallout 1.5, Fallout of Nevada and Mutants Rising switched to the FOnline engine instead, much more versatile and no need to work with the Fallout engine anymore, which is totally ass, even if Timeslip showing up made things better.

    Surf, does the FOnline engine supports destructible enviroments?

    Incoming copypasta from the codexian "what game are you working on" thread":



    I have been working on the maritime areas in my game lately. I initally wanted to have some "suburban/michigan civilian look" but it is very hard to pull off. So I went for a more "Waterworld-ian" look and feel, felt this is more appropriate.

    Here is a picture of one work in progress "waterworld" area, and the music I made for it


    [​IMG]

    And here is the music I thought for it: http://www2.zshares.net/056xebfmm4qg

    Does it fit?




    In other news, I have been working on the "Ghoul" adventure too and will soon release first screenshots. Since I don't need to worry about RPG systems there, I can quickly assemble it. Creating variables and scripts is ok to me in the FOnline engine, so this one should be fast!

    Surf Solar could you just post this on Soundcloud? Or maybe do a WIP What Remains music account there? I just hate D/L crap from those downloading sites.

    I really liked that song though <3.

    Yeah, I would have preferred SoundCloud. Those sites always look shady and creep me out.

    Ok, next time I'll be using soundcloud! :)

    Yesterday we've been looking into some minor stuff, it is now possible that the PC and other characters can leave footsteps in the sand, snow etc. I love small details like that :)

    The song seems more suited to a church or like a magical site than a run down shack by the river.

    Some nongame related scene I did

    I found a way to do those nifty reflections on the ground and also a workaround to create interiors much faster. Really feeling to put a lot of time and work again into it!
