RE: Kill The Dragon
Project change name, since I'm going to work at it seriously (but still as side project).
It will be RPG game about killing the dragon (duh) with strong influence of Roguelike games. Every time you start a game, huge part of gameplay will be randomized. It will take about 10 hours to finish game, but you will have only one life. Player will have 50 in games days to kill the dragon, but time is currency itself. Learning skill, crafting takes precious time (like creating this armor take 3 in game hours). I don't wanna create a big unreal project, but something I would afford.

Also, I finally get the feeling of vegetations I wanted to achieve:

RE: Kill The Dragon
Interesting concept. It sounds easy enough to be fun, and hard enough to be challenging. smile

Do you have any gameplay already, or is it just concept?

RE: Kill The Dragon
I have a little of gameplay already done, but not enough to share it (inventory, partly fighting). I'm focused now on island-generating algorithm, since I would like world to be generated. In two-three month I should have something concrete to show.

Very, very interesting concept, i really like rogue-type games and procedural generation, vegetation looks amazing and mobs and textures also. You got a good grasp of the exterior mood, looking forward to more info and pics in the future.

RE: Kill The Dragon
I know I didn't do much since last update, but still, I'm pretty proud of visual effect I accomplished. Especially when I compare with first screens I posted. Now, I'll focus on battle system.

All screens shows procedurally generated islands. Yes, it's little monothematic, I'm going to change that:

RE: Kill The Dragon
Looking cool! Out of interest what frame rates are you able to achieve in those scenes now that you have your bill boarding system in place?

RE: Kill The Dragon
Well, about fps it's depends.
The screens above were made with everything set to max and then I have about 10-15 fps.
I'm able to get about 20-30 fps with some setting without any significant drop of quality.
These are the results with my old laptop.
But please be aware there was to many changes, to simple compare frame rate I post last time with current.

I agree, it's not a simple comparison but thanks for the feedback anyway ... its good to have some feel of what's achievable in terms of the trade off between scene complexity (graphical quality) / performance.

What you have achieved already is very impressive, really looking forward to seeing where you take this smile

RE: Kill The Dragon
Hey Pharael i was wondering, do you sort the trees based on distance (maybe with "merge sort" algorithm) before drawing them or are they too far away to notice?
