AVWW Development Blog: Multiplayer, Energy Lance, Minimap
Early multiplayer testing has gone well. In our first foray, two players were able to connect and play together on a server across the Internet with all the basics working. The functionality is certainly a great success, and now the focus shifts to putting in smoothing/prediction and more testing with a varying number of players.
As for what's new in AVWW this week? Plenty! The HUD has seen several new improvements and additions including better organization, official in-game font, and a minimap to show where you've explored in each area. The Energy Lance spell has been introduced, which provides a handy way of slicing through lines of foliage, refuse and enemies; and several new regions, buildings, and objects, along with more densely populated existing areas have been added as well.
