Map lighting and Shadows.

Hi,

Above are images of a ship and a map scene rendered with lighting and shadows. This is basically a test of the rendering engine I'm using now and it works great (mojo2 for Monkey-X). You can see the ship is rendered with light and shadows along with the rest of the map scene. I will be using the mapping framework (code) from my earlier work on Phoenix USC which should look really awesome when up and running.

I am putting together a Phoenix USC specific video about the GUI and new developments there such as background screen casting and the above lighting developments. You can however check out this video (below) I made for my fellow coders where I demonstrate background screen casting. It shows how easy and flexible the new GUI is for Phoenix USC using my new gaming framework Alien Phoenix.

Hi,
I have some Html5 examples of the kinds of lighting and shadow FX being added to Phoenix USC posted on my website. I just received Monkey X's (programming language) mojo2 which is its new 2D engine.

Can't wait to include these effects in game. :)

Hi,
I should have the Linux build out in a few days. Saturday is the target (3/28/15). For now the Linux demo should be considered a tad experimental in that is difficult to predict what issues might occur across all the different Linux configurations. Generally though most should have no issues.

Hi,

The patch is almost done. I've decided to add 10% more zoom out on display as well as add a 'hide' feature to 'Global Chat' (IRC Chat) that will let you stay in session will it's hidden. I'm also adjusting player ships weapons with a little more fire power.

Up soon.
