Hi all,

 

I think SPCT are all done showing off progress for the moment, but @rooq took the time to edit down a flythrough for everyone who is interested.

You can see it here on the Little Orbit YouTube channel:

 

I'm looking forward to using this thread as a "starting point" so that we can show more progress with lighting and post processing soon.

 

Thanks,
Matt

I want to say this is because of the derp low range culling.  Can't be adjusted atm so it looks uber weird at night.

that looks more like a point light that needs adjustments. they did say lighting was not final.

Respect recreating APB in 3.5

Graphics and visual game design is still flat tho, no matter of new grass and added trees here and there, or more saturated colors. Its flat. 

Iam kinda dissapointed, and Ive been mad just a few minutes ago, but Iam over it now. I expected more bcs of pictures that G1 gave us back then.

 

This is an Engine Upgrade , not a Graphics upgrade

The graphics look better which is a bonus , but they are still working on lighting and other things

It's looking a lot better and vivid. Once the lightning and the rest gets sorted out, i highly bet it's going to look amazing! (bearing in mind it's still 3.5 UE)

 

I hope (I HOPE A LOT) you guys tweak the maps in the future, once everything is finished. By tweaking i mean, add new places for us to get inside while in missions.

There are a whole bunch of building laying around, and just a few that we can really get inside. It doesn't need to be a PUBG like "get inside every building possible", but a GTA-esque "get inside some more buildings than what is possible now" would do!

New props, we need new props too!
And being possible to sit on benches, and other stuff too! San Paro is a beautiful city, i want to sit on a bench next to the boat area, and eat my burgers peacefully! ha!

 


Again, keep up the good work Matt, Devs and SPCT!

This is something that would most likely happen when we are in Unreal 4 and not Unreal 3.5. but i do agree I would love to be able to go in more buildings and be able to sit in seats and what not.

Now that's more like it! Was hoping to see it all in action. Thank you @rooq for making that video, and thank you @MattScott for allowing it. 

 

..now to complain about something rather minor that's bugging me one hell of a lot. I just gotta be that guy. Whoever recorded that should grab themselves a controller. Makes panning around a scene far easier. Looks one hell of a lot fancier that way with less overall effort needed to get a steady speed.

It all looks good I think, except for the water which almost looks like oil.

Thanks for the video! The under construction sign at the end was a bit clever @rooq 🙂

I just noticed that the OM symbol sign (seen at 0:58 in the video) is upside down.

Okay, this looks very promising. Thanks for the video. Covers a lot of ground and I didn't really notice lighting problems myself 'till they were pointed out. So going forward it seems to be small issues, with the big ones already fixed 🙂

Big thank.

That video looks good. Interesting social store music choice.

 

Though I'm afraid the oversaturation will be a thing and I'm going to have to manually take away some color from APB once it's released.

Also not a fan of the missing shadows in shadowed-areas. But lighting isn't final so I'll wait on that one.

Noticed it when rewatching the footage. Seemed fitting. No problem 🙂

I was using a controller, albeit my talents are with mouse and keyboard. I'll keep it in mind in case I do something like this in the future: my intentional bobbing is not appreciated. I even considered adding the wigglerama effect within AE, good thing that I didn't!

Thanks! When that song greets me on Spotify it's instant nostalgia time.

Do check out Farfletched on Spotify and other places. Absolute legend.

Do remember the following statement when watching the video. All of this is a work in progress, especially everything visual.

@MattScott i guess there isn't a release date yet or..?

If he learned from past mistakes, he would give neither a date nor an estimate.

t seems to me that the game got better with these graphics, but will this also change the issue of frame drops?

Also a quick note about the font. The font is currently in the transition of being changed to the current live font so you might notice a few inconsistencies here and there.

Is it just impression or the difference between the old engine and the new one, is that it's just more light on buildings? Like, if you see the same image side by side, you can clearly see the new engine is just brighter then the old one.

Yeah, especially after seeing that video I am going to be honest and say it looks worse than live.
