Improved block placement ghost

2016-07-20 Development, Artistic
One of Stellar Overload’s strengths is to allow the player to place 6 different shapes of blocks when building something. The problem however is that with some shapes in certain orientations, it wasn’t always easy to understand the 3D shape of the block you were placing.

So we decided to improve the block placement ghost:

The clones village

"Hey Buddies !

With Ross and Monica we decided to share some houses together.
You are invited to the housewarming of our village on Merx.

In here, days are fun, birds are singing, Monica is knitting, and my carrots are growing. A pulsing life that we'd like to share with you.
Come at 301 on X, 24 on Y, on the top face of Merx. "

PS: "Thanks a lot to the village builder, Mr Reymantha, this god, this genius!"

Evolutive soundscapes and Surround sound

2016-05-12 Artistic
«Sometimes ago, the sun was constantly shining, but since Cubical Drift gave us a true day/night cycle, I can finally sleep a little better. I say "a little better", because the little birds chirping in my ears all night drive me crazy, and it does not seem quite normal. Can you help me?”
Enrico Balt (carrot juice producer on Merx)

I listened to you, Enrico, and now the soundscapes, like the music, are following the course of the day gradually. Notice in the video below how the birds are replaced by crickets and then by a nightlife ambience. With a music that does the same, you can now sleep peacefully.



A few months ago, I have also received this poignant testimony:

"While I was walking quietly on Merx (I was picking dahlias for a nice bouquet for my dearly beloved), a disingenuous Arkuloid came from nowhere, attacked me from behind and grabbed my last health points. Well, the cloning tank brought me "back to life", but it's not always easy to live with the Imperium Machina, you know. "
Cassio P. (farmer clone on Merx)

When I saw the moving testimony of this farmer, I understood the need for surround sound combined with good localization of sound sources. With the combined powers of Wwise and of the Unreal Engine 4, you will ear the exact location of the naughty Arkuloid who just woke up nearby. When starting the game, Wwise automatically detects your sound configuration and adapts to offer you the best sound experience depending on your hardware. From stereo to 7.1, you can now explore the planets safely... Well, watch out for the Imperium Machina, you never know...

Color grading!

2016-05-05 Artistic
"The lower the sun, ther pinker the light." here is a sentence that nobody ever said ... but it sums up this news.

The graphics of the game have reached a new level. After the clusters (see here), setting the color grading over time allows us to better appreciate the different atmospheric shades of the various moments of the day.

This is what you can see in this 30 seconds video, showing the day/night cycle on Merx.



And if the sun rises tomorrow morning - which I'm pretty sure - and we're outside at sunrise - which I'm much less sure - we could enjoy the color grading in real life! Go on, I dare you!

Woah !! My very first post.

2016-04-27 Artistic
Carrots, mandrakes, rocks, valerian... slowly but surely I am integrating my first elements in Stellar Overload.
Guided by the clear vision of Reymantha, I am discovering with enthusiasm all the possibilities and creative constraints.
Step by step, I am getting my bearings and I let myself be surprised by the clusters and the life they inspire.
Day after day, viewing and contributing to the evolution of this project is a delight.

Glory to clusters!

2016-04-20 Artistic
"Cluster" is the word we use to describe a set of elements that we wish to place in the same area.

In nature everything is clusterized, the trees, the humans, the suns are clusterized. Well ... normal people call it a forest, a city and a galaxy...

Short! artists now have an ultimate weapon to flourish planets.
And Merx is the first on the list!
