i 'm starting this thread with the intention on posting here regularly about the work i have done on the game.
how long i will keep up doing this? there is no telling that, but i'll try.
my main focus right now is to make a working, playable demo with the garage scene, with a handful of parts (no racing yet), and only one car (note that i will not include every functionality of the old alpha yet, there will be no replaceable mufflers, differentials, shocks and such, only changeable wheels. i'm planning to do that later, when i have proper 3d models for those parts as well)
i'm 60-70% finished with this. for now, i want to mimic the GUI of the old SR3 alpha, just because it's easier that way, i can reuse the sprites for example.
here is what i did so far:
there is the garage, as seen on the video earlier, now with the GUI present, non-functional buttons are greyed out:
then there is the engine view, where you will assemble your motor:
you can check out your inventory of parts:
the newspaper also has a minimal functionality already:
and you can also repaint your car:
that's it for now, i know it's not much but hey, this is all there is for the last 10 years!
let me know how you feel in the comments, see you all later!
