Production Line Blog Video #12 Lot Expansion, Zoom-out GUI & Rendering tech

A mixed bag of stuff this week. I’m crunching away boih at bugs, and balance issues, which make for a poor video, but also luckily we now have lot-expansion plus some zoom-out UI shininess to look at, plus I fire up nvidia nsight to give you a quick preview of how a frame gets rendered in the game. (FWIW I use my own engine, based on directx9 which means I need to worry about draw calls when changing textures. One day I’ll switch to a newer directx version, but I feel no pressing urge to do so yet :D.
