Escape from Pirate Island – Devlog V1.11.10

Changes for this version:

  • Work in progress on camera clipping (huts/towers/tent/barrel)
    • changed mesh for room to convex
    • hut clipping stairs
    • add capsule colliders to pear trees
    • add colliders to tent and other objects as needed
  • changed settings for minimap camera (FOV=60, Near Clip=10)–>redundant/disabled
    • Decided to remove the mimimap camera and replace with compass
    • main camera is now near=0.2 far=900
    • testing and may readjust as needed but should fix most tree clipping
    • some game objects do not yet have optimized colliders – work in progress
  • Added ability to hide/show the mouse pointer cursor (Escape key toggle on/off)
    • This effectively also locks the cursor the center of game window/monitor during play, but on death of player unlocks it to allow player to quit/restart game again.
    • added bad/good mushrooms (more will follow)
  • working on collider on fisher house and replace with box such that player can still get onto porch or make convex
  • working to add capsule colliders to pear trees
  • working on texture turtle eggs (replace temp spheres) , cast shadow

    • otter, beaver, raccoon, egret, heron, pelican, manta ray, large sea animals, underwater plants, a nicer pear tree, a nicer apple tree.
    • decorative props for huts and world look around and suggest something
    • torches, old lamps, candles, flintstone/lighter,axe pickup->stew
  • enabled blur with downsample  of 1 (but 0 works too)
    • (improves docks/boats/grass/sand/underwater visuals etc.)
