Graphical user interface conversion V6



Johann
Like the last time; I've been converting several more small systems to the new UI system. This week, the following features were converted:

- The tour 'any button to close' message
- The 'open community mission terminal' button
- The 'loading community mission' message
- The community mission voting view
- The divegame.net profile window
- Fadeout view
- The loading screen
- The air refill point view

The current status of the conversion: There's about one more of these 'small systems' passes to go, after which everything has to be tested and bug fixed, and we'll have to make sure everything has controller support.


Collectables



Bjorn
Hello guys, my name is Bjorn and i am the new intern at Vertigo Games. Currently i am studying Game Art here in Rotterdam and for the next six months i will work at Vertigo Games for my internship.

I'm excited to work on World of Diving for the coming months. It has been my first week at the office and i started working on some collectables for the game. My first collectable is a Ancient Pot, I made three variants of this collectable. Bronze,Silver and Gold. After finishing up the pot i started on the next one right away. A ship compass. I just finished op the model for this one and will unwrap and texture it in the coming days.



I hope you guys are excited for the new stuff and i am sure you will hear more from me in the upcoming months :)


More collectables...



Niels
Hello divers!

I would first like to introduce myself, I am Niels and I am one of the new interns at Vertigo Games.
I will spend my time at vertigo mostly on creating 3D models and textures.
For the last 3 days I have been working on some collectables together with Bjorn and Jeff wich will soon be added to the game for you guys to be picked up!
My time has been spent on creating a beer tankard wich is collectable in 3 different versions; Bronze, Gold and Silver.




Even more collectables!



Jeff
My name is Jeff,

I am a new visual arts intern here at Vertigo Games.

Welcome back from the holidays and a big welcome to the new interns Bjorn, Niels, and Jeff.
The new collectibles look great and it will be fun to see them in-game, it was a real surprise to me to see all the work that's been done on them already. The idea of the Brony in a bottle is brilliant and it made me smile. Best wishes for the new year guys!

I love this new update, except for one thing :

This "gold silver bronze" thing is making this so simplified it would make this game a children's game. (Or a 90's game...)

More complexity and less artificial valours would be better if you wish to keep this game merely a bit serious.

Welcome back team. Nice seeing some new stuff.
Lets cross our fingers and hope things will move along without kinks at warp speed during 2016 so WoD can be the greatest dive sim there is. New year and new determination.

I follow no path in life. I walk straight and leave a trail for others to follow.

If I was new to this team I would quit. This update crap doesn't mean shat. Focus on something else. This game is more days than Lemmy Kilmeister.

Now now, they still have a lot that they can learn from this project, specifically how not to develop a game. And how to run a project into the ground. And I’m sure they will learn how to PR spin even the most blatant of excuses and failures.

Oh look, your still here.

Welp go on, disprove me, disprove the things I’m saying, prove to me and everyone my assertions are false, tell me how this project hasn’t been run into the ground and is on the verge of death due to miss management, and all the responses from the team aren’t just PR spun excuses to justify their continue failures to make this game thrive.

It's one thing to say bad things about the game, that is your view and right to voice your concerns as i have done on this very Dev post but this comment ( dirty dyke) is unacceptable NAUI Diver . The use of Vermin is also something that we could do without. Please try and keep in civil.

Welcome to the new faces Bjorn, Niels and Jeff :)
I am looking forward the finishing of the Flying Dutchman and of course the whole game and hope that you will enjoy your work on this wonderful diving game as your colleagues did before ;)
I can understand that this development take time and wait patient, glad to hear that the project is ongoing, keep up the good work! ;)

News on updates are all fine and good, but these collectibles are not going to save a sinking ship of a game unless you get to work on clearing out all of the bugs that make the title unbearable to play at this time. It's still full of graphical ugliness due to your overeager jump to Unity 5.0 without doing a separate Experimental branch at the time to fix the myriad of issues that continue to plague the game and of which should have been rectified a year ago.

DEVS DEVS DEVS, You think that by blocking my old account I wouldn't make another one? I'm here to let people know what kind of scammers you people are. I don't need my money back. I'm all about honesty, so be prepared. Have a nice day.
