Skill Shot/ Attack Pointer
So, we got tired of the ugly arrow, however, the artists were busy working on the backgrounds and character design so I (the programmer) didn’t wanna bother them.. Therefore.. I was forced to put my Artistic Skills to the test… and there you have it! a new skill shot and Attack pointer!
There you have the attack pointer, once you release the click of the mouse it will shoot a projectile (yes… still a pig. lol.) As long as you hold down the mouse, the pointer will show up and “grow/shrink” as its animation. now the range for attack aiming is “unlimited” for now.
Next up, we have the Skill shot pointer, as you can see it is *LIMITED* to the skill range. making it impossible to just teleport to the other side of the screen if your teleport is only level 1, which is quite logical 😀
So this wraps up about the pointer, if you like it leave a comment! 😀 I think it came out ok… lol
The inventory is quite simple so far (since it is not finished, I just got tired of seeing the ugly plain grey square, wanted to decorate it a little :P)
There are 3 “fields” in the inventory.
- The inventory Title
- The spots for items
- the money label with the amount of “money” you have.
Now this inventory is just for now, it is a simple place holder (its made using just RGB colors and basic text) and will be replaced once we get the textures.
The “money” isn’t functioning as you might expect… it is basically an implementation to test our editable text. every time we kill a monster, we get 1 “money” which means… its basically a kill counter…
It is quite basic, just as we said, every time we kill a monster, we get one more “money” to our counter and the text just changes. this will be used in the future for presenting real money 😀
Picking up Items!
So there are bunch of coins on the ground which were originally toilets… or floating chickens… but forget that! now they are coins! and you know what we want to do with coins? we want to pick them up! Cuz why not..?? lol
as you can see we can finally pick up these coins! all you have to do is stand in front of the coin or item and press the pick up button (depends where you bind that button to, in my case it was `x`)
What to expect in 0.0.7.X?
In the next version we are working hard on bringing the game more toward the playable side! We are working hard on the world editor, NPCs, AI (mobs), animation, new background, and more! We are so excited to show you all of this so leave a comment on what you want to see next!
