CryoFall Dev.Blog #6 - Building

Added on 7 September 2016 by Lurler.

Another Wednesday is here and another blogpost about our progress in developing CryoFall!

This time I'd like to cover our building system. And specifically structure building, rather than objects building.

So, let's take a look at this screenshot first:

As you can see the building system is extremely versatile, yet simple. All constructions align to the grid which makes it much easier and more convenient to place everything.

Same applies to walls. By having a fixed grid you can plan your constructions easily and create elaborate buildings with many complex rooms all connected by doors, corridors, etc.

Obviously, there are many types of walls, each having their special properties such as their durability. Wooden walls will never be as strong as concrete. Doors are different too. In the picture above you might have noticed that the doors are different. Currently there are two types: normal sheet iron door and armored steel door.

Another thing is floors. You can place different kind of floors on the ground and they will affect a number of things. For example objects placed on foundations will have higher durability compared to objects placed just on the ground. Floors will also make it easier to walk (increasing your movement speed).

And I guess, that's more or less it for the building system. As always, don't forget to join the discussion on ourĀ forums and let us know what you think about the project and how it progresses!
