More oceanopedia!

Hey all, I have been working hard on the oceanopedia again. We made everything more readable by disabling screen effects for text. It is now more crisp. The tech for the oceanopedia is near finished and then we get started to get all the data in!

Crashed Helicopter

Hey Everyone,

This week I continued my work on the helicopter, finishing the textures and breaking the helicopter up into different chunks was my main goal.
I still need to improve the textures and fix some stretching here and there. I also want to break the rotor blades in a couple of pieces, since they rarely stay intact after impact with water due to the sheer rotational speed of the rotor. And as a finishing touch I want to add some more decals and stickers to the textures.

Then it is time to place the helicopter in the Delta and decorate the scene.

Work continues on the Unity 5 integration.


This week I've fixed a number of small bugs and performance regressions introduced with the Unity 5 upgrade.
Now that the graphical changes in the menu scene have been completed, there were a number of coding tasks that had to be done. These tasks included the configuration of camera effects and fixing some performance issues.

I've also improved the menu customization this week:
- Improved the control scheme
- The character model is now rotated instead of the camera
- The camera zooms in on the relevant body part when browsing the shop

See you next week!

Dive Shop

Hello Everyone,

During this week I expanded the counter, added in an attic, I also made some floor tiles and hung up some wet-suits.



This weeks work was mainly on the new bcd, I added new parts and I UVW unwrapped them. I am still designing thrusters to help you maneuver through the water. after the unwrapping is done I will bake texture maps, such as ambient occlusion and normal maps, and I will finish the color and specular textures.

I suggest changing the word 'theory' in the oceanopedia to 'info' or 'information'.

Cant believe the update will finally be here within max 11 days!
