Developer Blog #6 (3rd of April)

Postby Azuca88 » Thu Apr 03, 2014 3:38 pm

We are getting closer and closer to releasing the update for Novus AEterno. We have a few things we still need to polish before the update goes live. As of now, we are testing the build on an independent server and will keep everyone informed on the progress we are making. We want to thank everyone for their patience with this update. We do not have a set release date yet, but we are working as quickly as possible to get it out to the community. We are hoping to release the update sometime next week.

Client Team
Debugging and server testing is a high priority for the client team. Most of the technical aspects of the bridge and the changes to the sectors are on the verge of completion. The shaders for both the bridge and the transition between different game views are done. The only thing left to do, is to implement them into the game.

Server Team
Engine efficiency was being hampered by a bug; which has been fix. Global cooldowns have been implemented and ship docking is once again working server side. Work on all elements regarding the capital ship and troops will be completed server side within the next two days.

A few server bugs have been making our lives slightly harder than we would like. The server team has been combing over the server constantly to try and figure out what exactly is broken and what we can do to fix them.

We have also implemented a few systems which will initiate the players offline A.I when an unowned planet orbits close to a player controlled planet.

Art Team
The final model for the bridge tables are done. However, the textures and lighting effects are not perfect yet. The final bridge art assets are being completed. With the completion of these assets, the entire bridge can be constructed and placed into the game.

This week we have something special for you guys. A small comprehensive guide to the Acaeans.

So the ground units on the left, will we Acaean players have officers like them after prolonged trading and interaction? Or possibly ground units, I don't know if it's just me, but I like the space-centaur looking sapient there... possibly for a commander, or my avatar.
