Decimated Development News #12

Greetings, Decimators!

We invite you to join us on an exciting journey into the heart of Decimated's development progress. Let's dive right in!

Game World & Play

First up, let's talk about the camera and controls. We've been fine-tuning these elements to ensure smooth and intuitive movement throughout the game. The updated camera setup is going to allow you o fully immerse yourself in the action-packed adventures that await.

Except for this, the team is working on bringing awe-inspiring visual effects to the game, adding an extra layer of excitement to your gameplay - from explosive particle effects to stunning environmental phenomena.

We’ve also introduced a new simplified inventory system. This improvement will make managing your items and resources a breeze, allowing you to focus on the challenges and adventures that lie ahead.

But that's not all! Our team has been addressing world warning errors, perfecting the road terrain material stamping tool, and streamlining road placement through the powerful Houdini software. We've also made tweaks to wall structures, ensuring they blend seamlessly into the environment.

To make the world feel even more realistic, we've improved terrain textures, blending them seamlessly and placing rocks in strategic locations. The lighting and post-processing have also been adjusted to create a more atmospheric and immersive environment.

To ensure a balanced and engaging gameplay experience, we've established clear boundaries for the gameplay area and rerouted roads to create new paths through the game world. This allows for a more fluid and intuitive navigation experience.

Lastly, we've optimized concrete floors, rail tracks, and containers, ensuring that they look and function flawlessly within the game world. Our team continues to work diligently on refining and perfecting the roads, terrain, and rocks to create a visually stunning and immersive environment for you to explore.

Vehicles & Driving

Our work on the vehicles in Decimated continues, and we've made some significant progress since our last update.

First off, we're thrilled to announce that we've finished crafting three variations of the basic car. These sleek rides are ready to hit the post-apocalyptic roads and help you navigate the dangerous world of Decimated. But that's not all! We've also prepared various color options, viewable below, for both the car and the motorcycle, allowing you to customize your vehicles to match your style.

To bring these vehicles to life, we've added animations to the cars, making them even more immersive and realistic. You'll feel the adrenaline pumping as you speed through the desolate deserts of Decimated.

But we're not stopping there. Our team is currently working on the third variant of the basic sports car. The model is already complete, and we're now in the process of adding the textures.

We've also made some significant changes in the car physics settings. The entire team has been testing and fine-tuning the vehicles to ensure a smooth and realistic driving experience. We want you to feel the weight and power of these machines as you navigate treacherous terrain and outmaneuver enemies.

Speaking of physics, we're continuing to fine-tune the vehicles' physics to ensure they handle just right. It's all about finding that perfect balance between control and excitement, so get ready for some heart-pounding moments behind the wheel.


Now it’s time for exciting updates from the Characters Team! We're thrilled to unveil the sketch for the Marauder outfit. This rugged and menacing attire is designed to strike fear into the hearts of your enemies.

In addition to the Marauder outfit, we've also created a new generic male outfit. This versatile ensemble is perfect for blending in with the post-apocalyptic world of Decimated. Whether you're scavenging for supplies or engaging in intense battles, this outfit will have you looking like a true survivor.

For those of you with a knack for tinkering and engineering, we've created a Mechanic and Engineer placeholder texture set. These textures will help us visualize and develop unique outfits for characters specializing in repairing and crafting.

And let's not forget about the females out there. We've crafted a brand-new outfit specifically designed for our female cop characters. Whether you're upholding the law or taking matters into your own hands, this outfit will make a statement and ensure you stand out among the chaos.

Survive. Thrive. Decimate.
