We've been hard at work and over the past few months we managed to tick some major milestones off our to-do list. The first of which is, we are now an officially registered company by the name of Strangely Interactive! What this means is that we are now able to cross another major task off our list, moving from UDK to the a full Unreal Engine 3 license.
Having the source access also means the more performance-intensive tasks (like pathfinding, ship physics etc.) can now be fully moved to native code, without relying on the relatively slow Unreal Script. In addition to this, it opens the possibility of closer integration with custom tools, speeding up the development of some features significantly.
We've also been hard at work refining our ship controls. We've come up with something we've internally dubbed 'Freeaim'. Fighters have been the first to receive the reworked controls and we've included some shots below showing it in action.
As always thanks for the continued support, and look out for more updates!
