And here it is, finally released:

Space Age. Report 6

I hope there will be no more than 100 reports. ๐Ÿ™‚

Ok. I’ve made menu with all the required controls.
Also, there is one enemy(that green square) and satellites can shoot at him with bullets.
I’ve added new way of zooming, now it is possible to zoom with mouse down & move. When moving from the center it zooms in, to the center – zooms out. Works a bit glitchy so far.
And I’ve made my own mouse cursor.

I’ve decided to not use music in game (first time I came up with this idea when I was working on RiU game) and use internet radio instead, because even 1 small (3 minutes or so) well compressed song increase game size for ~1MB.
In Main Menu -> Options there is a Radio volume and a list of radio stations. User will also have an ability to add his own stations. Radio does not work at the moment, but all the required code is already written.

Space Age. Report 5

๐Ÿ™ I didn’t have much time for the game this week.
I have created characteristics for player’s units and started with enemies.
I’m creating classes for all the units at the moment, hope to make a lot of things this week-end.

Space Age. Report 4

So, game menus are done. They look ugly at the moment, but working fine.
You can star researches and construct satellites.
I think I’ve finished around 25%-30% of the game, what is quite slow, as it is 4 weeks already in development.
I wish I have more time.

Here is what I have right now:

Things to do:
1. Units and enemies;
2. AI;
3. Bullets, rockets, lasers;
4. Explosions;
5. Timing and balance;
6. Some events on Earth with population;
7. Main menus, options, load games, etc.;
8. Intro;
9. Find artist;
10. Find sounds;
11. Translation to Russian, Belorussian, French. (maybe German and Spanish).
