We've been busy this week getting as much of the core mechanics for Pirates done as we can manage.



Special Thanks to DotCam and TKMaster for the majority of work on the Ocean and basic Ship controller.
Benjamin for the majority of Galleon model



Our combat and weapon's development testing in the obstacle course map.

6 sword swings, 1 block. Sword collision is 100% physical. Still more work to be done though :)



The musket on day 1



By day 2, more VFX detail.



WIP Bomb.



Renders of some of the weapons, tiny little gifs don't do them justice.



The new overture theme

This project needs help, and I can't do it alone, and crowd-funding would certainly give me the ability to hire REAL help.

But, in order for a crowd-funding campaign to be successful, we'd have to have a few thousand supporters willing to donate.

As it stands, we only have a few hundred followers.
Now, I haven't been very aggressive in promoting the project, was more focused on trying to develop.

Maybe its possible to get people interested in this project with the current content and design document, but I'm a bit negative and don't think it's enough.

So I was hopeful that I'd get lucky and find a decent coder to help get the project to the state that I believe is required to have a large following conducive to a successful crowd-funding campaign. But 99% of the so called coders that I've dealt with are a complete joke, and I have just about exhausted my patience for deadbeats.

If you think I have enough here to expand the following and do a decent crowd-funding campaign, then I will give it a shot, but I'm not feeling very confident about it. My experience with this project and too many people I've dealt with, has been incredibly demoralising.

No, that would be pointless, and they are different games.
