I would have posted earlier but when I got home my computer decided to die (as predicted…). This lead to about two weeks of running back-ups and fixing hardware till everything was running again. Bad news is it delayed my work a fair bit, but at least I’m on a clean system now, and I didn’t lose any work!
On the game-progress side, I’ve gotten everything re-installed and working again! I’ve just started working on the engine again, as well as some other things. Hopefully next time when I’m deeper back into my work I’ll be able to show-off some progress!
A little personal note/life-of-a-developer story; my trip went well! It was exciting and crazy! So many wonderful experiences and people! But while away on holidays, I don’t stop working! While I will always be passively writing and drawing, even if it is just in my head, something that is very easy to do but also very effective while on holiday is collect reference images. For me, these range from textures, both interesting and basic, to shots of objects and architecture. Now that I’m working in 3D, I’ve also started taking reference photos from the XYZ perspectives (as best as possible), in-case I ever want to re-create an object or architectural piece in the digital world. I’ll pop a little montage of some examples down the bottom of this post.
That’s all from me for now, I’ll be returning to the regularly scheduled broadcasting this month! Till next time, all the best~!
