Hello survivors! Welcome to another edition of The Weekly Dead!
"Where's the pictures?"
Everything this week has been code work, and with some people recovering from sicknesses, and others visiting sick relatives we've come to the end of the week without any images to show. Work has progressed in spite of all of that thanks to the hard working team members who slave away while sick.
But for now, my picture's folder is empty.
The VLOG Redux
Did you see the VLOG last week? If not then here it is again. You should really watch it.
This week, Grant has returned from the land of the Anglo-Saxons and has battled ferocious jet-lag to work on his part. Refining skinning on the fingers. It sounds like such a miniscule task but skinning errors can be some of the most visible ones.
Chaoss has battled both illness and the illness of a family member, yet has managed to get a few things done anyway. Chaoss has been working on creating more modules for buildings, and the textures for them.
Richard has finally tackled his major nemesis of the past several weeks. He has got the inventory working seamlessly in multiplayer. This initially did not include Drag-and-Drop functionality as Unreal Engine has a problem with showing the icon while dragging, so until tonight the inventory works by clicking on an item, and clicking on a section of inventory/equip slot. Drag-and-Drop is looking to be Richard's next big nemesis.
The Rest and What's Next
Player movement is the final system worked on this week that I didn't mention until now, and next week the targeted system is Zombie AI. Hmm, wasn't Zombie AI one of the last systems that have to be in place before the release of the Unreal Engine build? I wonder...
I would like to take a moment to reiterate 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.
