Residual v0.0.21: Multiplying amount of graphics

Residual v0.0.21: Multiplying amount of graphics


I kinda thought this week was just me doing a LOT of pixel-pushing (creating new graphics) but a quick glance my the full changes list reminds me that I actually managed to do a lot more this week!

Some more time was put in the save-game code, last weeks save-game came with some big bugs, making those save-games pretty much unusable. This weeks fixes most of those issues AND it pushes the save-game down to just a little over 4mb.  I still noticed some discrepancies – so there are still bugs in these save-games.. but they are much more stable!  (You’ll mostly notice weird blue-water like images growing from vegetation.. I’m on it!)

There are now also 5 slots for save-games, and a “save game” option in the pause menu (although the game will auto-save on exit).

BUT like I said, most of this week I’ve been doing a LOT of pixel-pushing. I doubled the amount of background-graphics used for the planet tilesets, so you’ll find yourself on more variation of planets, and I also added a new background to the mix. Still more to come! but it’s been a productive week of resource-creation!

This weeks video goes into my “dislike” of writing save-game code, the 4th Orangepixel Switch game this year, AND some teleportation fun.. just watch:
