FPSC Reloaded Characters Getting Into The Spirit Of Being Shot

Another busy day on Zombie Farm, and making sure they do all the right things. Found some time to check other upcoming characters to the Modern Day asset library, in the form of our Shotgun guy.


As you can see, he does like to pose for the camera when afflicted by a strange object animation bug, but the pose was so striking I thought to capture him for prosperity.

Work stampedes forward on the Importer which might give me something to release to the alpha testers on Friday, and we are boiling down the ingredients of the Construction Kit to ensure that buildings created with the tool will appear the correct scale when compared to the rest of the game assets, and yet provide the flexibility to create a lot of interesting shapes.

It's gone 6PM now and the sun is shining, so going to finish off the last bug I was toying with (zombie model vertices being mutated) and then wander into the fresh air and do some raking.

I also strayed into a site called http://www.twitch.tv/ which I have heard about on and off, and with the recent acquisition talks decided to take a closer look.  Curious to know if anyone would trade a few blog post days in exchange for regular twitch broadcasts (not both as I need to code right now), and perhaps expand it in the future if it turns out to be a useful resource for you guys.

  1. I use Twitch and stream games the only problem i can see is the categorisation as you would need to contact them to add Reloaded to the list (Free) otherwise we would need to stream it under a different game.

    I also believe twitch is a good way of getting more pledges

  2. I don't like the idea of Twitch, because I often miss days of blog posts and I like to be able to catch up. Twitch (AFAIK) is live and not recorded. Besides, I have a non-video-friendly download limit.

  3. Twitch is mostly about people playing games and people watching them. Not sure if Reloaded is the sort of thing that would catch on on there, although possibly..

    1. WHAT?! I thought EVERYONE knew about Twitch! This is so strange!

      I totally agree, though; best to stick with the blog.

  8. I believe lee is just thinking along the lines of promoting Reloaded and he wont be the one streaming so this blog will be still ongoing, people do use twitch to advertise games software ect like for example i was watching someone using unity the other day and rpg rpg maker and it did spark alot of interest to the product and where to get it from.

  9. This is sort of the idea of what to expect of custom animations. Love to see them dancing with an animation file.
