Greetings Elegosians!

A small but important update this time around with a lot of backend work ready to go to support the next couple months of NPC combat, models and animations. We’ve been tidying and optimising as always so we minimise our technical debt, as well as workflow improvements just mean we can iterate quicker and quicker to get new things for you to check out ASAP.

The NPCs will now flee or fight, depending on their temperment. Some NPCs have a set number, others are randomized at startup. It’s a great place to be able to test things now and work out what to tweak. The silly NPCs keep running into dead ends so better sort that out soon.

We are trying to get the balance right between NPCs reacting as you’d expect for a game, and not necessarily ultra-realistic, simulation level of reactions. We are a small team with lofty goals and so that will require what I like to call a necessary level of jankiness. It’s still going to be fun though and worse case, everyone loves ragdoll physics and hitting things.

Environmental work is continuing beautifully as always. The team is doing a great job smashing through the various areas and getting the first pass of set dressing in with objects, props, terrain work, lighting, optimisations and general environmental storytelling. Amazing what can be achieved with limited assets and only another update to have the whole island first pass complete. Then we can pinpoint areas that need more and keep pushing them further.

The main focus for the last couple of weeks has been the Temple Island, both inside and out, and it’s great to see that fleshed out more.

Here is a copy of the changelog for some of the finer details of what is new and changed in Elegos.
