Will see what I can do. Will post some screens of both the graphical and text only UI when I've decided on what I'm going with.


Looking forward to it then. :wink:

Of course!

All updated monsters, weapons and, indeed, shit, shall be available in separate packs for all your smooshing needs. I'm planning on releasing these shortly after the main release.

Not sure about the mutators yet - we'll see how their relevant authors feel about having to update their work.

I wonder how you'll implement the workbench upgrades for them though

I thought of a fun idea. How about giving mutated enemies the ability to upgrade? Maybe have ultra rare radiation vents that spew radiation and if a mutant steps on it they morph/mutate/upgrade into a bigger, stronger beast?

Don't worry. I have a plan involving these, that will also support non-Ashes map based weapons progression.

I remember playing a game called Wasted on Steam that gave some enemies an ability like this. This might be awkward to implement, due to the way radiation works though. I was thinking of including a radiation based enemy, since we have a spot for one of those. But I doubt it will interact with radiation in this way. We shall see.

Quite.


We've just entered the next stage of our little campaign- heading out of The City and into The Badlands, and I will be posting some new shots once we've agreed on what we can show off. Expect this thread to get quiet for a short time again. But work continues.

Hey guys, sorry for not been present for a while, I was bussy trying to stay alive (2020 things :P)

Those screens look so detailed, I think you polished even more the sprites, maybe I am wrong. They look great.

About radiation enemies, I am on board on that. But I want to add some salt to that, making some kind of summoner/ necromancer that can summon/ resurrect enemies, both this new type of enemies and the spawns may have high radiation if you get to close. Just a random thought.

I saw you mentioned a discord, "the joy of mapping" maybe?

After a resent playthrough i realised that the bartender in Michonne Circle completely changed personality between the games. In the og ashes she felt like a stone cold bitch but in this demo she feels so goddamn friendly a talkative. I prefer her new personality more but it seems kind of strange. Maybe she got abducted by aliens and this is just an evil clone? Or in this case a friendly clone. Hidden Afterglow subplot revealed? dun dun dun duuuu

Hey, welcome back! Glad you survived.

Got something in mind for a mid-way point, regarding the above enemy idea, so don't worry. It'll make more sense, thematically.

And yes, we do have a Discord. Although it's really not very busy and is mainly for those wanting to playtest this and get notifications on the release date.

iirc correctly she changes dialogue slightly depending on how you speak to her. If you order a drink or food she gets a little more talkative. I never really wrote her as malicious though. She has a bit more respect for scavengers than most of the other characters. She's more sarcastic than anything, she just doesn't trust drifters that much.


In other news, I have been away for a bit, and still am. Wifi access is a bit sketchy. So can't post anything quite yet. Hopefully within the next week or so I can give a decent update to what we've been doing.

SO GLAD the TC is going well. Especially the map blended real well with the lemon-orange sky!
