[WIP] Star Control 1 remake

Post by Dragon » Wed Mar 17, 2010 10:15 am

It's a remake of Star Control 1. You know the story.

Until I have anything meaningful to say, here are some (old) piccys.

I love those planets of yours. I can just imagine how cute they'll look in the full game.

The exaggerated vertical relief on the planets makes me think of Spore. I'm liking the idea of a slightly cartoony SC1 remake, though. If you don't have high-powered modeling talent nowadays that seems to be the way to get a decent looking finished product.

I like the look, too! Give me a quirky sense of style and some art direction over a bunch of flashy shaders any day!

This is a very neat idea to me. Personally, I loved the strategy and melee gameplay of Star Control 1. I also rather enjoyed shattering fortifications with my Dreadnaughts :twisted:

Adding a link to this thread's predecessor as a matter of course . . . damn, this forum doesn't have a top 10 list!

More old piccys, some combination of these might be what the starmaps look like.

phpBB doesn't seem to offer a good way of resizing images with height or width arguments in img tags, like SMF did :x

Yep, its always made programming official when they start sending in graphs. Either way nice work.

Ack! Another bump and I haven't posted anything. I've made quite a lot of headway with input and actions and stuff. I can't remember if I mentioned that I threw out my old Direct Input library on the grounds that it was crap but it's all replaced now.

I also got briefly distracted by thoughts of a matlab to C converter (practically it would be compiled matlab) but - fortunately - I never started coding that because the type-freeness of matlab makes it difficult. Would have been a pretty big tangent if I'd tried it. :geek:
