Yes, I am still alive!
I realize I have disappeared for the past few days. No, I have not been binge drinking laying around in various gutters around the city. I’ve actually been working hard on the Starflight remake!
This is what I am doing – I am creating a planet generator for the game. This planet generator takes in the planet map from the original game and upscales it, adds mountains, hills, and so on. Currently being created are the albedo (color), normal (bump), height (parallax), and roughness (shininess) maps. I also created a test environment in the game where I can play around with some planet generator controls to fine tune stuff.
And yes… here is a video. Break out the popcorn!
