Weekly Update: August 18, 2023

This past week I worked on two in-game features: an element for the late game that required some VFX, and a feature that is sort of an updated/modified feature from Starcom: Nexus.

The latter took the most time: it was one of those features where I had an idea how I wanted it to work, but the first implementation didn’t feel quite right, so I iterated on it multiple times, gradually narrowing in on what I hope is close to its final version.

I mentioned last week that I’ve been communicating with some prospective artists/modelers to create new ship modules. After Povilas moved on to his new job, I was worried I’d have difficulty finding modelers who understood the technical requirements of the custom ship building system. But their initial efforts are promising, so I’m excited about that.

Until next week!
