Unfortunately, the youtube video compression doesn't seem to work nicely with fog. The video somehow ended up very blurry...
my Tablet to Windows 8.1. Looks nice so far. The touch screen mail client still doesn't support POP as mail protocol, which is a shame. But somehow, Microsoft now apparently included a full version of Office with this update (previously, there was only a trial version), and this time, it also includes Outlook. Which is great, since this is one of the most usable mail clients, with so many features. Great! Finally I can use the tablet for real, more in-depth work as well.
Recently, one customer didn't like this after he switched from using a Windows PC to an Apple Mac, and demanded to get the second license for free. I explained to him that this is a separate software, that it needs a lot of work, basically what I just wrote above, but he didn't seem to understand. I noticed that this guy was selling cars, so I tried to explain him the problem this way:
Maybe not the best analogy, but I think it could be understood that way.
Kromaia is a six degrees of freedom adventure shooter, developed by Kraken Empire from Spain. They just started an IndieGoGo campaign - if you don't know, this is similar to the better known Kickstarter. I always thought about creating a Kickstarter or IndieGoGo campaign for my game, but I decided to take it myself, and offer preorders instead. Not sure if this was the best idea, but for now, a few people already supported me with this. :)
Anyway, take a look at the Kromoia IndieGoGo campaign, and support them if you want and can, it looks like an interesting game. They are also using irrKlang as audio library, so the developers behind the game definately know what they are doing
Endtime At Home, I now implemented the first version of city generation. I wrote some details about this on the game's blog, and I'm really happy about how it looks now. It's nothing spectacular for now, but it is a beginning. The game engine now can create a more structured 3d world, where it can place interesting things and connect them. Like in this case, it can place cities and connect them with streets. Here is a rural area vs. city comparison:
There is still much work to do, but it is a very nice code base to continue working on. People who preordered the game in order to support the development (thanks, btw! This is a very nice motivation!) can try out the alpha with the new cities in the game already now.
