OK so I’ve been very quiet for the past few weeks but I have good reason. Sadly my PC motherboard kinda died. Apparently the VRM’s next to the processor couldn’t handle the processors power requirements and started to overheat despite only being 6 months old. So after figuring this out I ordered a new and improved motherboard! YAY! Which arrived faulty. I know have the long and boring wait of sending it back, getting it tested, and awaiting a replacement when confirmed faulty. This of course means that Asteria has not been touched and the beta for November is not going to happen. I would lift the needed files from my Hard drives but my hard drives encrypted and I cant access the map without damaging my windows partition and all my saved games and crap. With Christmas coming too which is the hardest period of the year for me work wise, even if I manage to get the computer fixed over the next few weeks, I simply wont have the time or energy to continue working on it until the new year. Sucks right? Sorry not my fault, motherboard was shit. So where does that leave us? Well fortunately I was able to copy some bits of my desktop before the computer died completely which included the Asteria models but not the map “I thought I would have my pc up and running in no time so only took the stuff I was working on”. I have of course continued with these models and you can now see the completed Asteria Exterior model below!
Ok I did promise some good news. Unable to touch anything I am currently working on I then decided to take a look at things that I can work on. Thought about it for a while and decided “hell with it, lets make an android game!”. With the Okinawa and Asteria models available to me I started making a Starbase building game with top down shooter elements! Below is a video of what I have so far! and yes I listen to the TNG theme while I make things!
