Unvanquished Alpha 38 First Person Shooter game released

Unvanquished Alpha 38 is a fast-paced, futuristic FPS with RTS elements, pitting technologically advanced humans against hordes of highly adaptable aliens. The player can choose from either team, providing a fresh gameplay experience on both sides of the conflict. This release mainly contains bug-fixes and code cleanups. There has been art progress as well but it came late in the alpha cycle and the integration of the assets wasn’t perfect so we did not merge them.

Unvanquished Alpha 38 update

  • For our renderer, there is now an auto-softening for all sprites, so that all particles now take advantage of the soft particle feature without having to explicitly call it
  • In addition to further refactoring of vertex shaders and deforms, as well as the removal of a load of old, non-functional renderer code, there is now a new building effect for human structures, showing them assembling piece by piece
  • The version of libRocket had been updated, and have fixed several bugs, including a fix that should hopefully help those that can’t get server lists on Windows
  • Gameplay-wise, total rework carried out on the radar system inherited, removing the old 2D sprites and substituting it with our beacon system
  • Objects of interest, such as detected enemies, are marked with beacons that will fade in and out of view as appropriate. Hovering your crosshairs over the beacon will highlight it and provide some useful information, such as the distance to the target (in meters) and what sort of equipment or alien form it has
  • Beyond that, dretches can no longer attack turrets, momentum gains now depend on the number of players present, and spiker trigger conditions have improved
  • See changelog for full list of commits
