Spot The New Feature February 23, 2010 cliffski It’s very minor. But what have I changed in this screenshot below? I’m supposed to be finalizing the new expansion. I’ll do more work on that tomorrow, but I’ve resigned myself to one more patch before I release it. I needed more weapon variety for them, and that meant code changes to the main game. Then I suddenly got a bit manic and obsessed about improving the graphics in all ways. Hence, 2 days were wasted trying to add shadows (I tried various methods but none of them look right, not without re-rendering every existing ship and a major re-write) and then a decent bloom effect. In the end, I junked all that code, because it didn’t get me anywhere. I’ve made 3 tiny changes today to some stuff which make the game look very slightly better. Overall, it all adds up methinks….
