How should MOS play out?

You're a lone guy, exploring the world. (Fallout-like)

You're a squad, and you control your whole squad. (X-com like)

Thank you, Strontium.
It's nice to hear that you like what you see so far :)
Very motivational.

Now I feeling like giving out a small demo of the game!

p.s. If there is any artists out there that would like to help with tile and character art that would be awesome.

I don't associate with associations

I've still been working on this game every now and then.
I built a new engine, and it looks much prettier and stuff.
I thought you guys might like this!

As for the destruction, this is kinda what I'm looking for:

The algorithm for detecting when a structure should fall, and getting the buildings to do the "cascade" effect is very strange,
but also super efficient! I could make a tutorial in the future.

I like that isometric style and how stuff gets destroyed :O


Thank you!! :OOO
I just really love X-COM Apocalypse, so I made my game isometric,
also I made the rendering algorithm SUPER efficient, so now destruction can be HUGE!!

Edit: Why cannot upload images anymore? :(

I'll check image uploads later. It's possible that uploads broke but I'm unsure why for now (here are the current settings. Maybe @Juju could check server settings to see if something is blocking attachment uploads?)


I am trying to think of ways to program the "AI" for my game, but
it's kind of tricky. I don't really care if it's realistic, I
just want it to be interesting and fun.

I also want the AI to be somewhat dynamic,
and not just following a hardcoded path.

The only attachment type I am allowed to post is ".", and I'm not quite sure what that means,
but images don't work, and nor do gifs :(

It's getting pretty interesting.

Lots of stuff from my just-named program called "Foxel", a voxel renderer.
I'm going to use it to help me make harder things like buildings and vehicles.

DJ Omnimaga

Woah that looks awesome! Could this be used to create a 3D sequel or something?


Probably not, simply because the method for rendering is very inefficient.
I calculate every voxel's screen position and I use the painter's algorithm in particular.
I would love to make a true 3D sequel one day, but I am just focused on this for now.


This actually looks like it has a lot of potential!
If you invest some time onto it, I don't think it will be hard to switch tho backend to render using openGL, or at least optimize your software renderer (transvoxel maybe?). Keep up the good work!
