I recently created a new data type for Above the Stars. It was an interesting excursion into many things I’ve never used before so I thought I’d do a write-up regarding it.
The MegaInt is capable of holding very large numbers all in a single integer, as well displaying them in a readable format.
A basic description can be found below as well as the full script (Creative Commons 4.0).
My method of creating Low Polygon Planets and exporting them to Unity, to achieve an interesting “flat art” design that is stunning and easy to do.
It is the first dev log relating to my new game, an incremental space shooter focused around defending and upgrading a planet and its technologies. Currently thinking of calling it “Above the Stars” but that name is subject to change.
I’ll hopefully start doing more of these types of videos if people enjoy them.
