Build 100!

Check out cool shockwaves!

Yeah so I jumped from 93 to 100, but I did it because it’s a big patch!

  • Remade Ice Sheet icon
  • Ice Sheet has a casting sound now! It’s crunchy
  • Traction Ice Sheet: 20 gold: allies don’t slip on your sheets
  • Thin Ice Sheet: 25 gold: enemies can’t see your sheets
  • Laser Shot cooldown down to 2 from 4
  • Laser Shot damage down to 2-3 from 4-6
  • Laser Shot fatigue down to .02 from .04

  • New Energy system that ties in with the new spell, Lunge
  • Created Lunge and its Augments! Its augments only go off if you have one bar of energy

  • Changed the layout of the lobby a bit: now the seats are in the center of the screen so that they don’t overlap with the chat on small resolutions with a lot of teams
  • Re-did art on some tiles
  • Added a shockwave effect to Plasma Ball and Meteor (a biiig one on meteor)
  • Fixed Ghostly Homing not colliding with players properly after going through a wall

What’s next?

This is War

I tested adding more bots to surpass the 12 player limit, and to my mild surprise, it worked real well! There are 100 bots in this game. I didn’t want the video to be too long, so I set the death cap at 20. I gotta figure out why the blue guys like to run into the Void.

Bots!

It’s been a bit over a week since I put a patch out because I plan on having the next one be a nice, big one with bots, a finished Ice Sheet, an Energy system, and a new spell and tile that work with the energy system. I’ve mainly been working on the logic for bots recently, and they’ve become pretty good at the game! In this video, I gave them 10,000 gold and spawned 11 of them to watch the chaos. They’re relentless.

Build 93: Scoreboard and 25,000 lines of code!

Now you can open up a handy-dandy scoreboard by pressing tab in-game!  It also shows up in lobbies post-game. Distance traveled is measured in tiles (so, 32 pixels per unit). Also, Orbiter’s damage was nerfed to 3-4.5 from 3-6, but its cost is halved to 10 from 20. All of the UI code to get the scoreboard to work put me over the 25,000 line mark, woopwoop! I’m gonna go celebrate by sleeping.
