Are the modular weapon systems part of the shard model and texture set or are you attaching different model/texture sets with lua magic?

Shard?

I was looking into piece attachment, I just have not bothered with it yet. Seems like a nice to have instead of a needed. Origonaly the idea was to say have a class based system.

so you would specify a base def, that def would say be called MECH. Mech could then be inherited by say Badger_mech. Then you could say have a def "badger assault," where you have the specified weapons and unique parameters. That way I don't have to have >9000 redundant tags in my unit defs.

For the most part I was working on trying to increase the capacity of my texture. for future models that may have a use for these texture bits.

shard is shared

ie: Are the modular pieces sharing a UV texture map with the base unit or are they separate intended to be attached via lua.

I guess there is also the lego piece method that kaiser used

Well, there have been so far these approaches:

Traditional: each model has it's own texture
Legos: many different pieces all using the same UV and texture, meant to be cobbled together into something(evo)
Atlas texture: all models are built separately, reuse the same texture.

I am doing a hybrid of atlas and traditional. I reuse the texture in places but also like to have some special shapes in my atlas as well.

ingame after the extras are done

Extra 1:
- new deployment mode, the old one felt like a hack.
- replace the old morph gadget with a more flexible updated one.

I have something in the works, been fooling with it on and off for a few weeks now. I am pretty close, shots are coming once I get my latest feature added to it. This is something for all game projects

A hammer on legs?

Actually, that can be a really cool unit.
