028 Evolving the Fire Peak Race Map

Thursday 7th Feb 2019


8:10am

In the office ready to rock. I’m jumping straight into Unity to see if I can wrap up this new race map in quick time. Starting with the river rapid rafting section!


1pm

Solid and productive session! The river rapids are working nicely now, they’ll really come to life once I add some player animations, and destruction animations to the obstacles you can hit along the way.


Aside from that I’ve been adding flavour to the environment and it’s starting to feel close to completion now. I love Unity’s terrain system, I’m not sure why it gets so much bad feedback, perhaps I’ll discover it’s limitations in the future, but for this project it’s such an amazing tool. I ran around the environment and added tress/details/terrain tweaks during runtime to make sure everything flows nicely and feels right.

Time for lunch, this afternoon I will add a few more flavour elements (just a few rocks and cliff faces really) and then start plugging in everything that’s needed to integrate the level into the game (sigh… hello darkness invisible blocking my old friend….)


2pm

Back, refreshed and ready to crack on!


5:15pm

Another really focused session and things are progressing nicely! I think all of the flavour décor (give or take) is done now, and I even managed to map down all of the invisible blocking!

Level blocking is done! Wasn't as painful as usual (thankfully!)

Adding flavour to the map is my favourite part - not only does this coral block the player from escaping the map, it really helps brings the environment to life

I’m due to finish this map tomorrow, and with a little luck it will be done by lunchtime, giving me the afternoon to actually contact Publishers (something which slipped from earlier in the week).

Off to pick up my daughter, I might come back for another hour tonight – undecided yet.


Adios amigos!
