Ashes Afterglow TC - closing the vault

Projects that have specifically been abandoned or considered "dead" get moved here, so people will quit bumping them. If your project has wound up here and it should not be, contact a moderator to have it moved back to the land of the living.

Have you seen Nmn's workshop? I think the ratman and hindring might fit Ashes' aesthetic for mutants.

I WOULD like to see The Hindring as Spectre replacement. But not invisible, instead it's nimble and quicker.

Hey, I've got a quick idea, wondering if it would fit in the game.

How about the ability to, in the field, use the junk you come across to make armor or bullets? Maybe have one or two inventory items where you can just take 50 junk and convert it into quick makeshift armor or 100 junk to convert into a pack of regular pistol bullets? Maybe these inventory items can be one time use or even have 3 or more uses, so it can't be abused or something?

Re: Re: (WIP) Ashes Afterglow- alpha playtest result

Post by Vostyok »

Thank you for all the comments. :wub:

The playtesting phase for the alpha is complete. Big thanks to everyone who took part. Overall response has been very positive, and I am working on integrating all the fixes and optimizes that were identified. The new off-hand lantern function, weapon upgrades and general level of destruction and interactivity were also well received. Which is really nice to hear since I spent fudging forever on that stuff.

There may be a short delay before the next round of news, testing or any sign of a release. We've got the first part of the episode pretty nailed down, with 8 maps in various stages of completion. Unfortunately, I would normally put a screenshot up here, but don't have any to hand. Perhaps I will give you guys double next time.

Anyway, open for comment replies:
Spoiler:

This concludes the evening news. We will continue broadcasting this message and notify you should the situation escalate.

What happens is that the lantern is quickly dropped before the maneuver is carried out. The scav does have pretty quick fingers after all.
Ah, smart!
I do wonder why we never saw a homemade flashlight though... The lantern looks like it's an electric one, so dismantling it to make a flashlight is not that hard to imagine...

I am not a huge fan of the idea to have the lantern AND a weapon for combat. Maybe a new pick (flares or flashlights).

There will be night vision goggles you might find later that will help keep your hands free.

Personally I feel flashlights have been a bit overdone. Flares were a possibility but I didn't want light to be a finite resource you could permanently run out of. I wanted something a bit different.

It's... voluminous.

It's still interesting, how much of Episode 1 will change.

----------------------------

Uh, yeah. For some reason, there is a backup of one of the files.
