Update 27 - To Hell and Back
Update 27 - To Hell and Back
Good news everyone!
Thanks to our wonderful crew of community volunteer developers, Update 27 has been wrapped and released! Going into the volunteer program we weren’t sure what to expect, but we knew development was much too slow and something had to be done, and we sure are glad we took a chance and accepted some help.
Now that we have a better idea what the volunteers are capable of and how to manage volunteers rather than regular employees, we plan on more frequent updates in the future.
We’ll need to upgrade the Unity engine sooner rather than later. Our current engine version is the 2 year old 5.1.3 released August 2015, and by upgrading we’ll be able to utilize all the new and improved features, graphical and performance benefits of an up-to-date version of Unity.
We’re also very focused on getting more weapons and tactical features into the game and we also really want to expand the AI of our enemy Combat Training Robots, to make them much more intelligent and challenging; with the AI teaming up playing SP/COOP/Wargames with strategy and tactics.
We’ll update Trello the second we know what we’ll focus on for Update 28.
FOR THE LOVE OF THE GAME,
Your small team and awesome volunteer army at Zero Point Software
