Pictures, so it did happen

Post#1 » Sun Apr 10, 2016 9:34 pm

So, last week we promised some fresh screens from the custom terrain engine. That was when John was still working on the content, but... Today we have a nice bunch of images to deliver a little sneak preview 8-)

Here are a couple of images to highlight some of the new features:

Real time lighting: A big step towards implementing a day-night cycle. Also a glimpse of the new road system
ImageImage

New terrain shaders: Yes! This is still Babylon! The terrain is very familiar, though something feels a bit off...
ImageImage

Realistic terrain: Bye bye booby hills and hello to tracks across the bushy plains, heading for a distant mountain range
ImageImage

Hollow Earth: What a mesh! The new system allows for holes in the terrain and physically walking into underground areas
ImageImage

Wottah: Finally, we found a 'well' performing water shader. About freaking time! ;)
Image


Alright, the new terrain is taking long enough so we hope these images soften the anxiety for a bit. In the meanwhile things will be tested and polished to a shine in the coming week. More news to follow shortly, hang in there... ;)
