PostSubject: Project Ark News and Update thread 2014   Mon Feb 03, 2014 1:29 am

Update #01 - Monday 3/2/14

Hey there. Since the project is back in full swing we figured we should start another update thread. This one will be more consistent and a little more professional. I'l be writing these weekly and as always if there are still fans lurking on the forums then thank you for the continued support. Onto the update!

The most obvious piece of recent news is that we've acquired two new members, Kpixer/Alison/Kiwi and Dominick/No_One who you might recognise from the forums.
Kpixer is a talented artist who'll be working with Nathan and Leo on concept art and Dominick is a skilled writer who'll be working with Sam and Tom on the story.
Speaking of Sam and Tom, while they've been doing all of their usual work recently they've been focusing more on getting the story down and figuring out things like how the second Island will play out in more detail. Here's a recent image Tom drew up as a draft of the second Island.
Vray who's probably the most consistent member, is still animating and has now started uploading  daily animation videos to our youtube under the banner of Vray's Daily Animations. This is his latest.
As mentioned, Nathan and Leo are currently focusing on concept work instead of modelling. Here's some of their recent stuff.
Gary is online a lot more regularly now and recently patched up some of the code regarding enemy AI.
And lastly I have been working on the icons and intermittently the menus and other miscellaneous stuff.

So yeah that's this weeks update. More than anything thanks to everyone who supports us and check back next week for more updates. Also, in case you didn't know there are links in the text.

You still have some supporters lurking and I am one of them. I am glad the the team is growing and doing good.

I really liked the first island design. I am expecting good thing when a demo is released.

Could you guys provide a list of the members currently working on the game?

Thanks Delta, and yeah you're probably are most consistent fan, which is awesome of you. Very Happy
About the list of members, here's a slightly outdated thread Sam posted back in November.

http://dwprojectark.motionsforum.com/t87-member-list

It's accurate for the most part, but I'l ask Sam to fix it up a bit when I see him online. Hope it helps.

Update #02 - Monday 10/2/14

Hello this is the second weekly update post reboot. I was sick for about half this week so this update might be slightly leaner than last weeks, but we'll see. Anyway onto the update!

Dom, Sam and Tom have been working on the story a lot this week and it's easily the highest priority section of the game at the moment. In fact as I type this Tom and I just finished discussing how the main character should meet their partner Digimon at the start of the game. I would post more excerpts but as we want to keep the story under wraps for now, my hands are tied.
Vray's still been animating. He's currently working on Fangmon and you can find his latest Daily Animation here.
I got a lot of drawing done earlier this week including finishing the attack icon which you can view as gif here and doing up a painting of Agumon.
Other than that things are largely the same. This week was a lot less active than last and much more story/creative direction driven.

Our Deviantart

That's it I guess. As always thanks for reading and showing your support. Check back next week for more news and updates.

Update #03 - Tuesday 18/2/14

Sorry for being late. I was away for most of the day and didn't have access to a computer. If I had I probably could have asked V or somebody else to write it. With that said some cool stuff happened this week so onto the update!

The biggest piece of news would be that Digimon World Project Ark is now up on IndieDB, we made a thread about it here. It's currently ranked 388 out of 14761 in popularity which is fantastic. It even peaked at 11! Sam has been working on a factorial town for the demo. It's looking great, but still needs to be textured a bit. You can view it here. Aside from that, it's been a pretty regular and slightly inactive week. The rest of the news is just the usual stuff. Tom has been working on the story and Vray is still animating. You can view his most recent hereand he recently finished Fangmon which you can view over here. Leo now seems to be doing sprites, here's one he did of Kunemon. And besides being gone yesterday, I've been working on the Distance icon, albeit a lot less than I probably should be. You can view the latest version here.

Our Deviantart

That's really all there was. Nathan, Dom and everyone else are still working hard as usual but there have been no major updates. As usual though, thank you for reading this and supporting us. Check back next week for more news and updates.

After watching the short gameplay video in the youtube channel. Here are my thoughts.
- The environment inside the game has improved comparing it to the old gameplay videos. The new areas look more livelier.
- I hope the UI shown in the gameplay video will still change, it looks too plain. I am talking about the clock, hp and happiness bars, menu etc.
- The new icons look very nice!
- Some suggestions to the weekly news and updates, please add an underline or change the text color for links. I am really having a hard time looking for the links.

I hope my feedback and suggestions wasn't too demanding. Keep up the good work Digimon World: Project Ark (DWPA) Team!

~~~ATTENTION~~~

The time has finally come, our tech level is practically done and we need some testers to give feedback.

There is still a lot missing but we're getting what we've completed out there for you guys to test, so we can make improvements in the right direction.

The game folder is only being given to people that we have in AIM for now, so if you want in on the first wave of testing you'll have to add my AIM contact = snoochy_-_moochy@hotmail.com or vrayx

Hope to get a few people interested so feel free to get involved. The more people helping the fastest progress will be Smile

Also check out our other pages and show support Smile

Hey Delta, sorry about the links. I'l ask Sam to change the colour seeing as he's an admin. About the UI, the clock and happiness/discipline bars are just placeholders but most of the menu is complete. The highlighter will obviously be changed and in the future we want to offer it in multiple colours but for now that's what we have. What changes would you like made though?

You only seemed to change it in one post though. Are you able to change link colour for the whole site?

I think you should revert it back to the original.
Zeromaru will just have to underline the links in his posts then.
