The past week I've been working on extra polish. It started out with a small glow effect that I created, I was pretty happy with it and after applying it to a ton of things I decided to focus on lighting.
I created a relatively simple lighting system and attached it to the in-game lamp models. Then I added a nice glow effect at the source of the light and repositioned the lamps on every level. By tinting lamps slightly different colors, I'm able to make different parts of a level stand out.
The lights are dynamic as well. I'm able to destroy them (or any other detail object around the level). I know it's a small detail, but I always enjoyed being able to shoot the lights out in certain games. Lights are attached to moving objects as well, vehicles firing weapons, missiles, mines, there are a lot of lights now.
There have been a ton of other changes as well, small things like rebalancing easy mode to actually be easy again, adding additional display settings, some small progress on the final level, as well as a bucket of bugfixes.
As for other news, I've finally set up a Greenlight page for Vektor Prix!
I set it up a fewdays ago, so it's still brand new and could really use your votes, tweets, hype, anything really.
