How A Tree Can Make All The Difference - Map Optimization

When we made our current test map, one of the first things we noticed was that while it looked good, its performance was far below what we were expecting. Even on our high end machines, it could have the frames per second drop in to the single digits. Not something acceptable, so we went over it with a fine toothed comb to identify, isolate, and repair the problem.

The Test Zone - Developing The Basics

Greetings from the Art team! Today's Art comes from pretty much everybody and we think you're gonna like it. The 3D department has come forward to show off our our first test-hood map where our models are placed, studied, developed and improved for the next version. Models and textures for buildings and roads and stoplights and all sorts of things come here to be worked on. Because everything looks better in context.

The Patchwork Profile!

Thought we'd forgotten about this? Of course not, we promised. Here's the 5k reveal, Patchwork! Because we did eventually get there, and you sure did a great job getting us close during the push.

12 Days of Devmas, Day 12


It's... it's the last day. We survived. Sure, the egg nog came to life... but we made it.

Guys. One last chorus and we're free! FREE TO TAKE OVER THE EARTH!

*dev team chorus*

On the twelfth day of Devmas,

your dev team gives to thee,

Twelve roaches clattering,

Eleven brushes painting,

Ten hammers fixing,

Nine foxtails a-spinning,

12 Days of Devmas, Day 11


Sometimes, it’s about the gentler things in life. Sometimes it’s about creation over destruction. And sometimes, you find out the pen is mightier than the sword.

Of course, being superheroes, the way you show this is a six foot long pen being used in a swordfight.

Or by using a paintbrush dripping flower petals to shoot lasers!

*dev team chorus*

On the eleventh day of Devmas,

12 Days of Devmas, Day 10


STOP!

Hammer time.

That’s right. It’s time for the cabbit to fix things.

And when all you have to fix things with is a hammer, everything looks like a nail.

So, you devs, you ready to sing, or are you looking like you want to get fixed?

*dev team chorus*

On the tenth day of Devmas, your dev team gives to thee,

Ten hammers fixing ,
