Summary: Corporate Mayhem Milestone Update

Some new about the next version of Corporate Mayhem v0.2.1:

I'll be adding basic support for sounds and networking through OpenAL and RakNet respectively. No, this does not mean the next version will have supa sounds and multiplay - it merely means these things will be easier to add at later date.

In fact, I've already added support for OpenAL and three sounds for all three weapons.

I'll also try add some basic mission system before next release, with assasination, protection and escort mission types.

Summary: Milestone update - news about next release

I think I got the very basic gameplay done now, but much tweaking and bug fixing is still needed.

Next version will be 0.2.0, but no, it doesn't mean there will be major new features, or any new features for that matter. I'll be just tweaking and fixing some bugs. Hopefully the Linux support will be improved too. This should take maybe a month or so.

What's after that? Well, much needs to be done. Support for sound and music and network play, I need to finish the City Editor at some point so I can release it, and of course I need to design some kind of UI too. The UI is really what scares me most, I want to get it right the first time, not just whip something temporary up that hardly does the job. I want to avoid screen clutter as much as possible, but I'm a little low on ideas...

Summary: Corporate Mayhem version 0.1.2 released

Version 0.1.2 is now released. Source only since no new major features introduced. Also Linux support in the current version is largely untested, due to me having problems with Linux and my brand new graphics card. It should compile and run but there might be some quirks.

Summary: Corporate Mayhem Milestone Update

Features added so far:
- Added support for lightmaps in the editor
- Added support for NPC level-of-detail
- Pedestrians no longer walk on roads and properly use zebra crossings
- It is possible now to set areas in the editor where NPCs ignore collision, f.ex. to allow NPCs to enter buildings
- Added agent pathfinding algorithm, usable by NPC agents and possibly in the future by player agents
- Various small bug fixes and optimizations

All in all, things seem to be progressing quite well. Thanks to the new NPC LOD and optimizations to the pedestrian movement routine, it is now possible to have over 2000 pedestrians in a city while still maintaning playble frame rates.

Next I'll be adding some lights to take advantage of lightmapping. After that I should be able to set the final format of 3D objects and everything that is needed in it, so I can start adding new objects and buildings without needing to worry about having to redo some of them to accomodate for new features.

Summary: New Milestone Goals

Now that the first release is underway, it's time to look at next milestone goals:

- Better NPC AI logic. Make NPCs walk on the side of the road instead of on it and generally make them appear a bit less random. Possibly also make it possible for NPCs to enter buildings, but that might cause some issues.

- Improved graphics, more buildings and structures. Currently there are only 5 different looking buildings, so more are needed to make the city look more interesting and less bland. Also possibly use parallax mapping for all building textures and tweak lighting accordingly.
