It's officially the end of week 1 of the Fallout Who Vegas development.
As in my last post I teased some snippets of whats to come, you can only begin to believe that they were just the start of it...
This afternoon, I managed to polish up the following;
- Randomiser Mode
- Vortex Mode
- Programme Mode (Datastores)
In this process, I've managed to uncomplicate the three modes ported across from Fallout Who, tidy their scripts up and successfully optimize each to allow for maximum modification when I started including more landing locations, more time events and more... spoilers.
So in short, everything from Fallout Who is now ported and working 100% in Fallout Who Vegas.
At this stage, I don't want to give much away, but I can only feed your anticipation by telling you that a lot has happened to the TARDIS since the Kid from 101 left with her and headed into the stars... a lot.
The week in general has been long; as you know both myself and my partner have been on sickleave with the flu, which has partly given me opportunity to use the laptop in bed with tonnes of hot drinks and short bursts of inspiration.
A lot of the remeshing has been done, with the phase I affectionately christen 'Blocking' completed.
There'll be a time for detail later, as I'm experiencing a lot of graphics glitches when panning the view out in the control room, but for now, not relevant. I want every small feature to be working and BUG FREE for release.
Finally, I've taken onboard a second hand as it were; Riker, from the forums, my appointed Project Publicist and general go-between has done me the decency of offering his texturing skills which will come in handy when I need to get the... ah, well... spoilers.
As for now though, I'm satisified I'm upto speed and date with everything.
I'll be making backup copies from this point on and won't be taking any chances like last time.
I'd just like to also say wow - and thanks. It seems I getting 70 + hits a day on the blog here, and the project just wouldn't continue without the support.
Don't forget, get active through the general means, the forum linked to the right of this post, commenting below and catching me whenever and wherever you can.
Next weekly update next Fri, but keep on twittering for daily news.
