Coherent UI! Wow!

One for the designers, devs and artists!

To any UE4 users out there, if you are looking for a decent 3rd party UI tool, check out Coherent Labs‘s beautiful UI plugin “Coherent UI”. There are videos on how to install and get it set up in your own project, you can request a trial of it as well. You can also get it for Unity.

PS: Please show these guys some love, they deserve the support!

Pause menu! Ta da!

We now have a pause menu!  It’s simple but effective!  Still some issues with it but it does its basic job, which is pausing the game!

Courtyard is improving! Check this out!

Got the Monday blues? Maybe we can help you overcome that by showing you some progress with our Courtyard level in Dire Consequences.

Our modeller, Max, has been very busy creating some static meshes and a few other bits for the courtyard level. It’s starting to shape up really nicely.  He’s really putting a lot of love and attention in this, which we are confident that it will yield the best results!  You’ll also notice that the lighting has improved a fair bit as well. We just need to sort the lighting around the ramparts to get the atmosphere just right!

Take a look at a before and after picture of Courtyard (darker image=old, brighter image=new).  Remember it’s still a work in progress but you’ll be able to play this level (with all its fixes) at the start of next month!

We’re about to test cloth physics!

We had one hell of a storm here at Derp HQ. Then again, I think a lot of people round the UK encountered it! Speaking of storms, we know this guy will definitely be hurling more than just lightning! We’ve been experimenting with a bit of physics and how to make cloth. So far so good for our first attempt.

I have a feeling that this will be highly amusing to balance these physics!  We will definitely post up some bloopers as they are always amusing!  In fact we might have a few from the original game to post at some point!
