Working on some graphics for Tactix Surface.
Most of this will be likely redone in the future, but it looks good enough for now, so I may as well keep it.
v0.004 Concept art and Abilities Logic
Rebuilt half of Sector 1-1 from Diamondsion Assault in a massive scale, better than ever.
It’s still in concept mode, I have a TON of sprites to work on, and dynamic atmosphere later, with like 5 background layers.
When grazer adds 16x16 grid, I’ll redo it again, but with so much more detail, since I can use smaller objects for more customization.
I’ll also maybe add dynamic lighting for all of the sprites, for things like lightning and explosions, so parts of nearby ground glow too.
*Controller support finished
*Tree base logic finished
*SHIFTER WILL SOON NO LONGER SUPPORT KEYBOARDS
YOU WILL ONLY BE ABLE TO PLAY WITH A CONTROLLER
Now I’m working on my 1,000 filter checks and porting Dash logic over
By 1,000 filter checks I mean, no matter if I’m pressing up, down, left, far left, right, far right, or nothing but jump, I will activate the same type of jump, until I unlock angled jump. Similar can be said for Dash. No matter if I press left, far left, right, or far right, I still do the same distance Dash, until I unlock momentum Dash, so a farther tilting left or right dash goes farther than normal.
I currently have 5 trees for jump
*Imperfect: You start with this. You have a little bit from each tree.
*Base Abilities: You get your powers removed and have to start from scratch.
*Jump Tree: Tree 1, for things like High Jump, Double Jump, Triple Jump, Charge Burst Jump, Hover
*Dash Tree: Tree 2, for things like Celeste Dash, Multi Dash, Stamina Dash, Teleport Dash
*Assault Tree: Tree 3, for things like Spin Jump, Homing Attack, Lightning Spin Jump, Ki Blasting Parkour
Choose your tree, unlock each upgrade through Story Mode, power up unlocked abilities to 3 Tiers from Diamond Shards and XP.
You can change trees at any time. Pick the one you use most, or best for a current situation, if you have the right ability unlocked.
Mastery Tree is unlocked when you have all 3 trees completed, and includes a hybrid of all the abilities, in essentially an overpowered neon electric god’s wrath, and the bonus of Unrestricted Flight. Fly anywhere by cancelling gravity and moving the toggle stick. Great for travelling around to do side quests or exploring for 100%ing the game.
It will take me maybe a week to finish the logic for all of these.
