Nothing to show for screenshot Saturday (you've had your lot  :P )
But some info on what I'm working on - hopefully get it all finished...

It's audio related. I'm going to try artificial speech! It will NOT be understandable, but it will be phonetic!

So best is to have some insect/arachnid-aliens "chr chr crrkkkk chr" :D


Repetition #143: keep the simple gameplay spirit if you do not want to create a "Master of Orion"-like game (which is not the worst you could do :D)

OK so here's a screenshot for Saturday:  :P


"Say Hola to my little friend"... It's the psychotic computer El Fandango!

And regaldless if anyone else enjoys things. I'm having a blast with the new synth and making sound fx :) \o/

Hope we do not have to manually target his "stop" button (bottom) or hammer a "fire missile" key :)


@ fonts
Think they (dialogue fonts) look a bit "standard" (not suiting to the sci fi setting). Surely on your "todo"

I looked at different fonts, but came back to clarity over look. I wanted it nice and clear what was being said :)

Hmmmf. How do you get a computer with an identity crisis to give you help?

I've come up with the start of a cast of loonies...


I just plugged some different models into the code. I can take a mix and match approach and see what we end up with :)

I must confess: I am not a friend of this "verily broken speaking English". Computers can learn grammar _rules_ easily, so they should use the right words. Computers lack empathy. So they would just say "kill" because something occupies space a more efficient object could use instead.

Also for non-native speakers it can be more difficult to understand.


@ robot design
Just check out Benders friends in Futurama for ideas :D

I had a look at Futurama, but the robots all have a very distinctive look, otherwise I would have copied them ;)

things are starting to be brought together  :o


and after disabling all the satellites:


2d fireworks, explosions. 3d models, 2d layers, then 3d layers, then more 2d layers then more 3d layers
The fact anything works is brilliant.

Not sure how it will go down, but technically i'm impressed :)

Not much time now.  :-X
Simplify the UI
remove features that can't be worked on and finished in time
Note to self - this is a huge project, did I take on too much?
