Too quiet :(
« on: December 19, 2014, 05:28:35 AM »
Now the semester has finally gone. I was actually expecting some new stuff popped up by the time I got here, but it seems like not that much change had been made :(

Anyway, I actually found that there was a project called OPENXCOM http://openxcom.org going on for modding the X-com: UFO Defense, the original game. It was just a splendid project: what they've done is not just fixing the problems, but also giving the full modability so that users themselves can participate in the modding. You can freely add new weapons, make new maps, change the desing, almost everything can be done really easily. I think it's based on C+ or something.

It was really impressive, and I think it's really good since every gamers essentially become a part of the developing team. A lot of contributions had been made by other gamers, so the progress is quite remarkable. I think it wouldn't hurt to see what they're doing now. I also heard that UFO2000 is another project for the original game, focused on the multiplayer capability. And they're using the Lua scripting. I don't know if it will be helpful but I'm just saying :)

Hope new things would come out. New maps and challenges would be interesting, I think. I wish I knew more about coding but my knowledge is shallow. Maybe I have to learn some on this vacation.

The openxcom sounds interesting.  I'll look into it more.

As for A&A, I have hoped more people would create more levels, yes.  But surprisingly, there has not been many who have taken up the challenge.
