The next time you update project explore, you might notice some big changes. I'm re-writing the entire engine at the moment to run smoother, allow easier world development, and even mod support. I've made sure to make the camera movement feel smooth compared to before and I have even added zoom to the camera. The world will take place in one huge area now, unlike before where it was divided into regions. The inventory system will be receiving major fixes and updates.
The point of me re-writing the entire game is to create a stronger foundation for Project Explore and to polish some of the elements we already have. The game just didn't feel right to me before and it definitely did not stand a chance against any other titles in it's current state.
As you can see in the picture below, there is now a system for loading in resources. Before, the game would just load it all at once and keep it all in memory.
Gazelle is working hard to help improve the HUD and some other elements of the game.
We hope to bring you the new version soon! For now, you'll just have to wait! Thanks for reading!
