Hello survivors! Welcome to another edition of The Weekly Dead!
The Visual Part This Week
The great palindrome week has not been a week of visual progress in the form of images. In spite of this Chaoss has managed to capture a few images of his work, for your visual feasting pleasure. He's finished all the materials we'll be needing for the suburban houses. The work that he has done has laid the groundwork for all future buildings and not just these houses you've seen.
The caption in the image above was written by Chaoss himself.
The above image is another view of the house that was pictured in the image before this one, currently a work in progress as evidenced by it being nothing more than walls and not in engine.
The exclamation point on this section of The Weekly Dead is the above zombie selfie. Hopefully the man this one used to be was just carrying a camera, because the situation would be awful if the zombies started learning.
During this week Geoff has been hard at work setting up all the items. This includes their names, the various item quality levels (Contaminated, broken, normal, etc) the stats (For weapons this would include damage and durability. For food how much sustenance it regains and so on.) how much space the items take up in the inventory and their weight. It's a combination of data entry and design for over 400 items. Tedious, necessary and in the end there is nothing we can take a picture of. Well, maybe there is one thing I can take a picture of...
Richard has still been working on the inventory systems and getting them up and running. Mainly he's been working to get Unreal Engine 4.8.0 preview 2 working, as it gives us access to the features available in the new build of the Unreal engine.
You can read about the new features available in the latest Unreal engine update in this link.
Many of you may have been wondering why the workshop was empty when you went to browse it, or why you couldn't upvote anything. Well, we've figured out that our upload program was uploading things under the wrong category. We have since updated it, and you can find the uploader at the location in this link under the category of "Tools / Packages".
Creators will have to edit their creations or possibly re-upload them using our new uploader tool.
The section containing this sentence is the weekly reminder that both Geoff Keene and Richard do livestreams every now and then on twitch.
We've created a team twitch page that includes Chaoss's profile, no longer banned by twitch for the heinous crime of being British but not using Virgin as his ISP.
