Weekly Dev Log for June 24th, 2019
Hello everyone, and welcome to the Weekly Dev Log for June 24th, 2019, detailing all the changes that have happened since June 14th, 2019. Note: Devs that don’t appear in the weekly log are not necessarily away or not doing work, but may be working on things currently not announced or backend work that doesn’t need to be detailed.
A bunch of progress has been made with the arcade since the last development log. Salmon Says, Mind Tester, Skeeball, Whirl-A-Fish, Little Birde Feeders, Dizzy, Stack 'em, Wheely Rigged, and Ring God are all playable, yet their gameplay is not entirely finalized.
@wheezwer completed the artwork for “Avalanche” and “Ring God”, and is continuing to work on artwork for “Little Birde Feeders”.
@Johanna started working on a “moving target” arcade game model, and she also completed the model for a “duck punch” arcade machine. She also went and fixed some ceiling tile lightmaps in the Arcade, as well as tweaking the “Little Birde Feeders” model to better suit the gameplay. Lastly, she worked on materials for the animated lights for the arcade machines’ attract states, and created some signage for the “Avalanche” and “Ring God” games.
@Sketch worked on artwork for the “Wheel of Fire” game.
@Madmijk started working on “Stack 'em”, focusing on gameplay and replication.
@Caboose700 finished the gameplay for “Salmon Says”.
@macdguy worked more on the arcade game base, adding several features such as player animation support, physics improvements, LED colors & attract animation support, improvements based on playtesting, and scoring zones for Skeeball and similar games. He worked on gameplay & controls for Skee Ball, Dizzy, Wheely Rigged, Super Hoopers, Salmon Says, Little Birde Feeders, Mind Tester, and Whirl-A-Fish. He also started working on gameplay for Ring God (Ring Toss) and started implementing the animations @Gloves finished.
@Gloves made some adjustments to the button press animations to make them play faster, as well as creating a different type of button press, which is more of a fist slam than a slap. Also started making throwing animations for “Ring God”, as well as working on the Sledgehammer animations.
@Will worked on sound effects for Dizzy, and started working on sounds for Skee Ball.
