Post news RSS Progress Update 3

Several models are underway, and the Model Viewer has been completed, allowing in game renderings of WIP models.

Posted by on

Since the last update, I have been working on finishing the Model Viewer - a tool that allows modelers, modders and game testers to load scenes into Aero Empire's rendering engine (download link here: Indiedb.com). A lot of work went into debugging the tool / rendering engine to get it to work on ATI graphics cards. I have tested it on a variety of ATI cards, however there are still a few problems to work out. There may also be more incompatibilities that need addressing on other graphics cards that I have not yet tested. If you would like to help in this effort, feel free to download and try the model viewer application and report any problems or bugs you encounter.

There have been several models under production since the last progress update, and with the completion of the Model Viewer, some of our modelers have taken in-game screen captures of their work. All building concept art below is by RedOwl, and all airship and weapon concept art below is by Timmon.

That's it for this update. The Gyro (see last progress update) is currently being tweaked, and Onerom has started work on the female character 1 model. Additionally, Cobalt, our writer, is drafting a complete history of Aero Empire's world, and will be posting an update when it has been refined and edited.

Look forward to future updates.

I really love the technical drawings you guys have for both Architecture and Vehicles. Great work.

Everything is shaping up very well!

Thank you! I'm a fan of Timmon's technical drawing's too - he's something like our technology guru (not sure how technical my buildings are though, lol). Glad you like them, though. That's always good to hear. ^-^
