Below is the launch video:
Just created the cockpit for the walkers so you can now pilot one. OK its not Titanfall but still damn good fun! Plus if yours gets destroyed, you can simply customize and manufacture a new one at your Vehicle factory.
Recently added a whole plethora of new features including:
- Missile Silos: No need to send troops, just blast them from afar with highly precise but expensive ballistic missiles.
- Artillery: A less accurate but easier to use long range weapon, simply select the area you want destroyed and your artillery will continuously rain down shells on the area.
- Invigilator Walkers: Weaker armour then tanks, but much more powerful then troops, able to wander into an area with their dual gun points and decimate anything in sight.
- Intelligence Centre: Now you can have a mini map in the corner so you can see the whole battlefield in one go. It does have a limited range but this can be removed by researching a satellite to launch into orbit. The satellite has other uses too such as scanning for resources hidden across the battlefield and also ‘encouraging’ a nearby asteroid to crash down.
- B.A.R.B.R.A now kindly tells you when enemy troops are trying to use the lift, how nice of her.
- Reduced the GPU overhead on troops so now you can have more of them.
Here is a video demonstrating all these features and the current state of Executive Assault. Enjoy!
Thought I would upload some combat pics from my programming tonight. Currently working on streamlining the pathfinding so that it can handle more units and is also a bit more stable. Going to look at spreading out the troops a little too as the tanks seem to like to bunch together.
To make Industry a bit more search friendly I am changing the name of the game to Executive Assault.
But as of today it will be now known as Executive Assault. I feel now is the best time to do this before things really ramp up.
Based on some of the feedback from my latest video I decided to upgrade the A11bot model. I originally never intended to add any rust or errors to bots texture as it had literally just been manufactured at the factory, however this made it look a little boring and unrealistic.
Along with updating some of the models I have also added the Long Range Facility and Artillery.
Securely enclosed inside the bunker, when activated, this behemoth will rise out and rain shells down on your target. Careful your mainframe doesn’t get hacked else you might not be able to open the outer doors to the building.
