3DWing Commander Pixel Art-y Unity Remake!

Howard DayHoward Day611 Posts: 429Member
Remakin Wing Commander 1 in 640x400 in Unity3d! Why? Cause I think it looks cool. Ship re-designs inspired by Arne - https://androidarts.com/spaceships/WC.htm And a running, AI-driven demo here: http://www.hedfiles.net/WCR_GL/index.html So far I just have the one cockpit, unfinished, and two fighters. I plan on replicating most of the ships from WC1 with a very few additions.

Enjoy!

    That looks awesome. I love how it looks retro and yet modern at the same time. I have the original Wing Commander for both the computer and the SNES. B)

    Awesome work! Is it all sprites? Or are you using actual 3D models in unity?

    This is freaking cool. Never play any of the Wing Commander games though.

    Never too late to start! They're super cheap on GOG.com. :D

    Okay - medium update - I've added some animation to the player's legs - it always bugged me that they we static with everything else going on. now they're controlling yaw - I miiight change that to spin? Maybe. I've fixed the eject light and core damage warning lights - Eject will light up with 30% core damage - but only if your shields are < 50%. I've updated the explosions to inherit the ship's velocity when they die, also updated the projectile impacts to spawn debris when you start chewing through armor. The plan is to have specific Kilrathi/Terran armor and hull chips - but for now it's just spawning a bunch of rings like Sonic getting shot in the ass. Fuel's been coded and hooked up - a Hornet has the same fuel capacity as a F-14. 2400gals. Seemed a good starting point. In the background, but not quite live- I've been working on camera switching for right/left/back/ chase cam views - they look awesome - but I need to mess with the art-shifing logic a bit to make the m move around right when you turn.
    Enjoy!

    Nice and Retro.
  • BrandenbergBrandenberg1554 CaliforniaPosts: 1,872Member
    Did I read you were using Unity?
  • Howard DayHoward Day611 Posts: 429Member
    Yup. The running demo works in unity in your browser and, despite what it says, on your mobile:

    That brings back some Nintendo memories...with the Game Genie.

    Hehe, I'm all about the nostalgia! So, gotta "ORIGIN" replacement logo, with a bit of a visual joke: l1kr1bslhitl.png
    and some more in-cockpit and chase camera footage!

    Cool emblem.
  • Howard DayHoward Day611 Posts: 429Member
    Thanks, Brandenberg - not bad for a guy with shit logo design abilities.
    So, basically everything except for the Weapons Display, Damage Display, target display, Comms menu and navigation display are all done and working! ...yeah. Still work to go before this is at pairity with the basic Hornet cockpit. Then I gotta hit cockpit damage...which should be fun!
    WCRemake210.gif
    Muwhahahah, I was right. I just did a pass on doing damaged versions too - these get dynamically masked in based on your ship taking core damage.

    That looks really fantastic. I love the broken glass on the damaged version.

    Incredible and wonderful like always! =)

    Will you do seperate damage indicators for left and right too?

    Brandenberg
  • Howard DayHoward Day611 Posts: 429Member
    Yep! The damage covers the entire screen.

    WOW! Love it.

    I'm digging the display screens as well, though I will admit I was thinking "I wonder if they'll be 3D reimaginings or not)
  • BrandenbergBrandenberg1554 CaliforniaPosts: 1,872Member
    Wow

  • Howard DayHoward Day611 Posts: 429Member
    Yep, bashing faces with your entire ship since 1990!

    Here's the new added Salthi, both in turnaround and in action!

    Looks gorgeous like always! <3

    Maybe you could add some flickering/distortion to the (nearest) displays when a electrical discharge happens.
    If this is possible.

    Perfect. Just like trying to watch TV back in the day when someone was running a hair dryer.
