haven’t posted pixel pokes for a while, here’re some darkrai doodles
splish splish splash, water effects!
today I’m gonna work on blocking in the last meal, it’d be great if I could finish it today but it involves stuff I haven’t actually planned so we’ll see how it goes!
today I’ve been working on the wine sauce for the steak meal! right now the four ingredients can be added to the pan in any order with the colours of the sauce reflecting what’s in there currently! next step is making it so the sauce can be added to the meal or poured down the sink.
getting the wine & tin to appear to rotate around their centre rather than their pivot (which is at their base) took quite a bit of work! I ended up making them temporarily unheld when pouring so they don’t follow the mouse and can move away a bit to make sure their poured stuff actually goes in the pan. there’s still this bug that causes their models to warp really weirdly - something which I need to sort out, but otherwise I’m happy with it!
filling the sink and washing potatoes is a thing you can do in-game now! next steps are to add splashes on water contact and maybe a subtle colour change from an unwashed to a washed potato. and then I’ll work on getting the saucepan to fill with water when placed under a running tap!
the oven now roasts (and burns) steak and asparagus! the steak can also be seared beforehand in the frying pan. next step is making it so everything else that can be roasted… can be roasted!
I’ve finished putting in all the base food models for the three meals! but that’s the easy part really - next I need to get the cooking code in for the steak and fish dishes. the only modelling work left now is for the set itself which I’ll leave until last as that’s purely aesthetic stuff!
guys! this month we reached two milestone goals over on my patreon, and that’s amazing!! :O
before today I’ve only had $1, $3 and $25 reward tiers but today I’ve added a new $15 one - backers in this tier and above will be sent a pateron exclusive print of the last game completed every month! current backers and anyone who starts this month in the $15+ tiers will be able to get the NTGIM print shown above (I’ll be contacting current eligible backers shortly).
the new milestone added is an ambitious one! if it’s reached then I’ll be fully supported through patreon, all living expenses covered. it’s the genuine dream of mine to make a living this way, it’d be absolutely fantastic to reach this goal!
check out my patreon for more details, thank you everyone!! (if you can’t back me then that’s completely understandable!! just sharing this post would help a lot!)
made some bottled ingredients for cooking game! red wine, mirin, sake and soy sauce (the first for the steak dish, the last three for the fish!)
I went and put my spaceship model into unity and made the lights flash and buttons pressable, plus I added some stars for good measure. not bad for a day project really
you can play(??) the result here! unity browser plugin required
today I made a spaceship?? because. I like the prop design in star trek: tos…
all three meals together! I’m really happy with how they came out, they’ve been so fun to make!! but… I’m so hungry now……
