SDNL: New Game World

@Johanna finished working on “Frostbite”, there’s still some additional prop clutter to add, but the map is basically finished. She also started working on an art pass for “Meadows”.

@joshua continued working on the new animation rig, as well as some guns.

@Lifeless continued working on “Hinderance”.

@macdguy continued working on the HUD and gameplay loop. He also fixed a bunch of small issues with sliding and sprinting, worked on an iron-sight system, and tweaked some melee gameplay.

@Nuclearxpotato continued working on a new map, Disposal, which is based off the Virus map, Corrosion.

@Wheezwer finished working on the graffiti, and worked on some prop art for “Frostbite”.

SDNL: HUD and Weapon Select UI WIP


@Caboose700 fixed some bugs with our internal server browser API.

@macdguy worked on re-working the server listing UI to take advantage of our internal server browser (not using Steam’s), while also giving it a new coat of paint. He also changed how the “Hide/Unhide” feature in Condo I/O works. Items will now no longer override the current “No Collide” setting, and will block/unblock the “use trace”, allowing players to hide buttons behind walls, and then toggle the walls of with I/O to allow use of the button.

@Nuclearxpotato worked on some condo items.
