Omega: Map and Collision Detection Changes
Fregas Baratis has posted an update about his Ultima-inspired RPG project — Omega, as it is currently known — in the Ultima Dragons Facebook group:
Status update on my Ultime-inspired game, Omega. I have been preoccupied building a website for my Church (We’re UUs so we follow the 7 principles which is something akin to the Virtues) but I picked it back up tonight. I’m rebuilding the map and collision detection (walls, line of sight, trees, water, etc.) using Rotorz Tiles, a plugin for the Unity Game Engine. I got the water to animate using a single image and manipulating its offset instead of a 8 different versions of the image to make up animation frames. So anyway, there’s some rework going on and it doesn’t look like much now but it’s still happening.
