Sergeant Knight at Arms
Bannerlord - Epic Space Battle - Spacecrafts, Space Fleet AI
Greetings warriors of Calradia!,
in this Development Update video, we take a look at some of the recent additions to the game that you can't yet download and experience straight away!
Things to note:
Every spacecraft has its own AI and very own targeting system in place (the reason why it tailed me for like one whole minute ) It's sometimes even too good, I had to make four different takes to get this video because, in previous trials, bots were just shooting me down. Spaceships contain 5 men crew, and they all instantly die once the spaceship is eliminated. Eliminated spacecraft floated in the air, ones that are close to the moon get crashed to the moon over time because of its gravitation. ( moon also rotates in scene, not sure if it's visible )
the ship is leaving the Legacy-Class Star Destroyer
A new control system is in place. The player can shoot laser with the mouse, and also rotate the ship. Can speed up to move forward, backward, right, or left, up or down. There is a speed limit for spacecraft types. i.e. Enemy spacecraft is slightly slower but has a more powerful laser.
A custom UI that shows speed, spaceships and protection. Protection is essentially spacecraft's health. u/s = unit/second, v/c = volt/charge - Player spacecraft gets a randomly generated name.
Code part took 1-1,5 days but overall with help of Errayn, it took 3 days to finalize the entire scene and video. Special and big thanks to Errayn since he created the scene and assembled the models and saved me from downloading the modding tools.
Also thanks Terco for giving a try to add armor that later gracefully failed ,
Almost all models are from lightwarrior in sketchfab.
Songs: Aliaksei Yukhnevich - Battle for the Universe, Aviators - Omnia Paratus
FAQ: No, it's not a mod - it's an idea that I'm playing around with, that's all.
