Mini Update: Shaders

Post by SimoRoth » Wed Jul 18, 2012 9:26 pm

Tonight I'm working on some rendering stuff. Adding a shader for when you place something and it needs to be built. Went for a retro hologram style..

Nice choice for the hologram, fits the atmosphere of the game in my opinion.

I agree, what I've seen from the game so far at least...

Nice look but I hope they are flickering, wouldn't really look analog without it.

Will certainly flicker.

Might even wobble their position on the screen (in 2d) to make it extra flakey.

Retro holograms are very nice. These days devs usually just go for a translucent model or something similarly lazy.

I don't know where to post it, but in my opinion turrets are too bulky. They don't look very nice, they're just big boxes with guns and lights attached.

love both the look and the idea of the image shaking almost as if the air or dust is interefering with the projection

I love the hologram idea, but the shade of green and the size of the "particles" doesn't sell me completely. Why not more of a Star Wars faded blue style look?

Because that would be:
1) lazy
2) unoriginal
3) not-80s
4) wouldn't fit the Maia graphics style.
