tip make an object wich has no collisions and has some white dots (stars) so you can see the spaceship moving ;)

As for the stars I 'might' resort back to the underwater dust, technically a star is like sun or planet, im not keen on them being textures that the ship flys through, so flying a ship as it is would be more realistic, I might increase the drawdistance so the player can see the next planet or some kind of space debris or spacial event

lol no its not a joke, only fools actually try to trick ppl on april fools.

Its not the dozy cheat, its lara swimming in water & TREP'ed out ;)

Its more of just an announcement of the production and to ask for help with concept art, I have many ideas but it helps to see other peoples visual concepts to gain a better mental visualisation of what I can build.

At the moment Ive started work on the first planet that lara wakes up on, its development is going well, I will periodically post screen shots but I hope not to give too much away and save some awe for the player ingame.

Hey, if you need help with ideas and concepts for your outfits, I can help about that, but only that, I don't have time for building outfits, because I'm busy on something else. :)

Wasnt Re4 but a RE game, Theres still a ton of patches I'd like to see before I start designing it , most of the effects ive developed for it will be included in Space Raider, I've decided to combine my Lara's Toy Story Franchise and combine it into Space Raider, Fe-Fi-Fo-Fum! indeed ;)

The Idea for the flying spaceship originally came to me when I was designing 'child of the matrix' whereby the hovership was flying through the real-world tunnel network, the project may have been cancelled but what I developed lives on,
(hence the 6 years in the thinking :) )

That would be great, I am an accomplished mesher and I intend to UV map all playable characters

Space Raider: The Return of the No More Squares !

The First planet that Lara lands on is a forest world like Kashyyyk or Endor :D

This is just another example of how the player can be tricked into thinking that lara doesnt live on the 'Planet of The Cubes' .
This is FAR from the finished thing, its just a test of the Spiral Stairs Leading to the upper levels.

awesome, if the whole game has stuff like this then it will be incredible compared to the box bound games that are nomally made. :)

I like the Spaceraider idea. :tmb:

Does the collision of that staircase actually end where the (round) edge is?
So Lara falls off the stairs where ever you make her walk over the edge?

Thanks, Actually there will be hand rails around the edge too
(as well as some other support beams to make it look more realistic)
and they will have collision added properly so lara doesnt walk through

I will post more pictures and another video when the first part of the village has been made :)

I already have laras first enemys prepared for the first planet, Im not looking too far ahead yet, what kind of help did you mean?

Well now that I finally understood how to make the enemy's meshes join toghether I can make "new" enemys (Changed meshes and some animations like death animations and climbing around animations) well you can wait to see my Ada enemy if you want.

I once moved the arm of the mummys animated punch with Anim Edit once and after that it didnt hurt lara at all, I need to learn how to fix that, the first baddy will be a modified scorpion and I want to change the way it attacks lara
