The power of light

2016-08-17 Development
Hello world,

for my first post, I'd like to introduce a new kind of block, risen from the dark depths of a tormented game designer's brain.
It's a laser, and I'll let you here judge his "atrocible" power of destruction (not for the faint-hearted)



No (real) animals were harmed during the filming.

Dear Clones,

Effective this day, the use of the "Sticky Block" feature (also know as "secondary fire") of the primitive weapon you call "Blocks-Thrower" to degrade any Imperium's Complex will lead to corporal pursuits.



Any information on the whereabouts of a wrongdoer will be rewarded.

This was an official message of the Imperium Machina for the protection of Order and Peace.

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:

BlockBuster

To infinity... and beyond !

While visiting the futuristic city that some of you created in the game, we felt something was missing... Maybe some movement?

That's why I took the liberty to do some minor modifications. ;)


You'll learn more about that really soon!

PS : No comment allowed about my bad driving!

All Hail Imperium Machina !

Dear Citizens and Clones,

We’ve been living in fear for too long, a fear engendered by these vicious criminals calling them-self « The Rebellion » and who, while pretending to bring the so-called « liberty », are committing the most terrible crimes : Thievery, Murder, Looting, Jazz Broadcasting.

But rejoice ! Today is a big day in the fight against the enemies of our people !

Our engineers, working day and night for the Glory of the Imperium, invented the T.A.R.D.I.S* (TActical Retreat and DIstract System) allowing any equipped Unit to move at very high speed on a short distance.

Watch right now our Testing Units try the last technological wonder for peacekeeping !



This was an official message of the Imperium Machina for the protection of Order and Peace.

*The use of T.A.R.D.I.S by any organic creature might provoke nausea, headaches or instantaneous death.
** No test unit was harmed during the making of this film.

New Block Times – March 23, 2016


"I heard you", he said a few days ago, when he read the comments of the news about alignment to a grid on the French forum. His neighbors confessed not having seen him since. However, anonymous witnesses state that he hid in his garage to, according to these sources, "develop at once a feature essential for the project’s survival". Here, at the editorial board, we were skeptical and asked our special correspondent to investigate.

After long journalistic tirades, he explained to us that the famous feature enables the player "to choose the alignment offset of the grid with the Shift-V key". Curious, we have been able to do an exclusive interview of the creator, which has resurfaced since this long weekend. He explained to us:
"We couldn’t release the product like this. Since the announcement of the feature (Ed: see our article here), users had bad preconceived ideas of the usability of the grid alignment on different contexts. […] So we thought it was important to compensate this limitation by enhancing the feature".

We asked our popularization specialist, Mr. Dushnock, to translate in more understandable terms the meaning of all this: "Basically, what he is trying to say is that by default it was aligned on a fix grid, that the user was unable to change. For example, if you try to place furniture in a house, it doesn’t align correctly with the floor (if you are unlucky). However you may want to use this alignment tool to place it. So what the pretentious tech guy is doing a poor job explaining is that he added a shift-V shortcut that enables the user to define the current position as reference position for the grid. That’s what you see on the video you showed me. It won’t save the world, but at least it will make the V key useful.".

We have had the opportunity to shoot this exclusive video (that Mr. Dushnock is talking about), where you can see the placement of meta-blocks on customizable alignment grids thanks to the shift-V key:

If like me you love pink, and think that the game is not pink enough, the new “paint bucket” feature is made for you.
It’s still in development, but it will enable you to replace an area of block of the same material with another material.

Look how to make the world more attractive!



Ok or maybe not... It’s the thought that counts!

Of course this tool has a limited area of effect (you can’t paint the whole planet in one shot!), it is yet to be optimized, and will be a real tool (for now it is a simple keyboard shortcut).
