Game Update 4

published Friday, 16 Aug. 2013, 22:00 by ZPSHicks

This update includes a brand new map called 'Evacuation' which is the largest map we've created so far, as well as the first Spearhead bonus content and scoreboard profile icons.

It’s no secret that we’re in the process of ramping up the team (last week we welcomed back Nicolai and Jess) and we’re still looking for more exceptional people (Game Programmer and 3D Environment Artist).

We have a few days of intense project planning ahead of us which might push the next update, but do not worry, everything is about getting more unique features, dynamic simulation and addictive gameplay into the hands of you awesome people.

Visit our Interstellar Marines store page on Steam

Version: 0.5.4
Released: 16th of August 2013
New map 'Evacuation' - a full size combat range with a staged crash site evacuation zone situated in a wet and moist swamp

New Features

  • ADDED: New map "Evacuation" - a full size combat range with a staged crash site evacuation zone situated in a wet and moist swamp
  • ADDED: Spearhead avatar icons to scoreboards and names
  • ADDED: Support for installing Spearhead content such as soundtracks, art books and secret bonuses
  • ADDED: The original "Interstellar Marines - The Beginning" soundtrack to the Spearhead folder
  • ADDED: Profile section to the menu
  • ADDED: Support for layer-based reflections (advanced user options coming in the future)
  • ADDED: Water movement sounds (impact effects are still placeholders from "concrete")

Fixes

  • FIXED: "object flicker bug when light is close to pitch black" (Unity 4.2 bug). This currently prevents us from having complete pitch black lighting.

Keep the great feedback coming!

FOR THE LOVE OF THE GAME,
Your team at Zero Point Software

Hate to be rude and ask this, but how long before we might see any singleplayer/coop added, I'm itching for those sharks on legs.

I don´t know if your team is splited so someone makes maps and an other one makes models, animations and all of this but pls stop making maps and make the aliens/Landsharks (or wathever these things in the trailer are) and marines can jump and croush and the option to upgrade and change your weapon. 1 map would be enough if the gameplay is good.

Not to pressure you guys but i"d like to see several things happen. First the game mechanics, we need jumping and crouching and scopes would be nice! And for everybody who bought the steam version like me, I hope that you guys are finding a way to link these together.

This is way cool, but I definitely think the next update needs to include crouch and jump, otherwise players won't be able to utilize cover very effectively. Also, I keep seeing things online that say opening your helmet changes the sound of your gun, but this doesn't work for me and it all sounds the same, helmet on or off. Is this because I have a mac or what?

Unite as soon as possible game modes available games on an official site with the stimovsky version. so you at least won't be trampled down on one place and you will give the chance to judge your creation less prejudicedly. game excellent and concept simply super.

Enter a shooting gallery at least. Your game in a browser format turns out much more interestingly than game through the client where the multiplayer is available only. In the section where you give the chance to move it turns out much more dynamically than game in a multiplayer where even it is impossible to sit down. The earlier you will enter it into game the better will be for game as a whole. If it is your first project. That be not afraid to be mistaken. You have which fans you can lose because of promises and inaction. You have no new updating nearly a month, but there are unfounded promises. I don't ask everything at once. Test everything consecutive and try to develop to a campaign game adding at least gradually separate elements. Also be not afraid to ask for help. Even if it is connected with money. I hope that at you everything will turn out.
