Combat Demo!

I've made a short Demo level for anyone curious about Eye of Dawn. In this you get to fly:

  • An Assault Corvette, equipped with two explosive round rail guns, and a missile launcher that launches a barrage of 6 High Impact Missiles,
  • A Light Craft, Highly maneuverable and equipped with Impact Lasers.
  • A Fighter Corvette, also very maneuverable and equipped with Lasers and a 12 missile barrage.
  • A Bomber Corvette, equipped with lasers, a 4 missile barrage and a 5 megaton nuclear bomb launcher.
Use these powerful ships to defend a convoy against an ambush of Na-Wo attackers.

Stay Tuned for more excitement!

New Weapons Systems, and Models!!

Hey everyone! I've been working pretty hard on Eye of Dawn for the last few weeks.
The first thing I've done is make a new weapons system, which adds weapon overheating, but there isn't currently any HUD Icons for that. It should only take a few minutes to implement that once we've made all of the proper gauges and such.

Second, I've added a missile barrage system, so you can fire not two simultaneous missiles, but a staggered barrage of missiles. This looks a lot cooler and actually makes it easier to hit your target, and speaking of which......

It's also pretty easy to hit them when you're locked on! That's right! now you can Lock on to a target and your missiles will chase them down. Also your HUD will give you a "hull scan" showing a blue bar for each ship in range!

I've also tried my hand at a little modeling. here's a rough draft of a space station.

That's eventually going to have a few bells and whistles to make it a little more interesting to look at. but you get the gist of it. Here's a shot from inside the hanger:

Development has been pretty exciting this month, so I'm really looking forward to working on this more and more as the summer months get closer. Thanks for viewing and please share this news with your friends!
