Update 1.0.2 (New textures, combat returns)

I'm approaching a sort of peak in my work cycle where I expect to have a pause between projects. During this time I'd like to return to Project Explore and treat it like I used to, as something I enjoyed making, a hobby project.

This time however I plan to focus on bringing all the new tech back with me while I rebuild the original Project Explore. I started today off by grabbing a few higher resolution textures and replacing the ugly pixel art ones I created.



Following the new textures I fixed danger zones not working correctly. This means turn-based combat is back until we (Kaller and I) get around to replacing it with the original combat (swing and run).



I also grabbed the original code used to create the fake 3D effect from the original game.



I'd like to implement it back in and involve the mod system in how it's used. Alongside all of this I hope to make use of some of the various improvements that have been made to Game Maker Studio 2.

About This Game



Project Explore is a 2D sandbox survival game developed with only the best in mind. The simple yet responsive UI is there to help the player, not hinder them. It has a high-functioning inventory system- the items can have their own unique traits through metadata system. The game’s multiplayer is light-weight and has very minimal hardware requirements. With that said, server hosting is extremely optimized. The game comes with up-to-date patch notes and documentation to help with server configuration, mod creation/support, and everything in-between.

Modding

One of our priorities is mod development. We are huge fans of Feed The Beast (Minecraft Mod Pack Distributors) and similar teams. Having the freedom to be a fruit salad chef, a weapon smith, or a mercenary. That's what it's about. We are constantly encouraging users to create new mods and help us to expand what is possible with the game engine.

As a user you can install mods very easily. Simply drag mods into the mod folder and you've added a mod to your game! They work in multiplayer and singleplayer without any extra hassle. You can easily create and share them with friends.

Developer Quote

"I think every player deserves a voice and the direction of the game should be based on community feedback, and ideas. I've followed this idea since the beginning of the games development and so far it has helped the game become something I could not have ever imagined." -Seabass
