Design Sketches 2

I like this new version of the Alliance tunnel-digger.
It doesn't actually appear anywhere in the game (well, not yet, anyway).
I also fixed the levels and backgrounds for the concept drawings for the buster cannon (aka. quantum blaster).

Had some thoughts on how to re-work some of the sketches that went into the production of the game.

Sketchbook - StarDart 2 and 3

I had some other images of the StarDart (along with its carrier vessel), which I added to the sketchbook.
I enjoyed getting the ships to fire at eachother in the last one.

Sketchbook - StarDart

avatar Crash
2020.05.25


Watching the 'New' CGI Captain Scarlet, something about those Angel aircraft reminded me that I had an old outline of a streamlined little ship, that I found when moving house, last year.

The idea was for an anti-piracy vessel that got from where it was to wherever it needed to be in the shortest possible time.
The ship has a powerful but not particularly diversified weapons loadout.
This can be expanded with mission-specific underwing pods.

X-Bomber v0.84f - Update 2

2020.05.20


I've been working on the interior of the space fortress; adding a lot of alien symbols and graphics.
At first, I had a bit of difficulty setting that up the way I wanted but it's working great now.

X-Bomber v0.84f - Update 1

2020.05.13
Happy week-middle!
For X-Bomber the Game, I did quite a lot of work on the player special weapons.
The gunboys, lock-on-lightning and plasma grenade launchers all received attention in different ways.

I also made the last outstanding special weapon; the arc sabre, for the Dai-X.
I noticed that Multimedia Fusion seemed to have some new expressions which made the geometry and formulas amazingly quick and easy.

The game's onboard screenshot engine has yet to capture a really good image, illustrating it, but I'm very happy with it.

In the meantime, here's a doodle that I did ages ago, of the minelayer ship that I will need to sprite for the last level.
I also added an image of WingBlade to the website quite some time ago but it was never announced on the front page.

v0.84e Update 5

avatar Crash
2020.04.29
The space fortress reactor is nearly finished and quite cool.

I suddenly had to do a lot of work on the xbomber.co.uk site.
I upgraded the SFXB forum, and it now needs PHP 7.
Unfortunately, PHP7 helpfully has all the MySQL functions removed.
The re-working of the website is reasonably far along.
I should have the forum running alongside the website again within the next several days.

I promised a new X-Bomber version at the end of the month but I don't think I'm going to make that.
Once the PHP situation is fixed, I'll finish the gun ports/missile launchers for the reactor.
After that, I'll do a playtest and tidy up what's there before uploading the first new version in well over 2 years.
