Timelapse of making a 3D Aircraft Model

Still working on that aircraft game I posted about a while ago.

Yesterday I modelled a fighter jet that I want to include in the game. I recorded the modelling process, initially for personal use (to help me remember certain methods I use). Then I thought I could post it here too, as a dev update for the game.

Final Result:

Creative process (texturing only):



The video shows 3 hours of texturing work fast-forwarded into a 15-minute timelapse. I also recorded the mesh modelling process but the recording's colors were messed up and I didn't like it.

The game's development is rather slow, but it hasn't stopped. Since my last post, the game has had certain additions:

  • Sea and lakes
  • Aircraft machine guns
  • Lock-on system
  • Aircraft takes damage from colliding with ground, other aircraft, and bullets
  • Aircraft explodes at 0% health, and pilot ejects and opens parachute
  • Enemy and Friend AI, allowing for machine-gun dogfights

More as game progresses.

Digital Forensics: Imaging

Hello! Sorry for being inactive so much time but summer lasted a little bit longer than usual..!

Regarding my digging in digital forensics, i decided to create a series of posts beginning with imaging. So today i will show you the three most prevalent formats of "post-mortem" imaging and how to obtain them (on a *nix system) from a test disk.

The discussed formats are the following:
(1) Raw Format
(2) Expert Witness Compression Format (or ewf)
(3) Advanced Forensic Format (or aff)

Revisiting "Stick Soldiers"

Update 16 Sep 2016: The project mentioned in this post has its own page on Gamejolt and Itch.io now: Visit "Stick Veterans" on Gamejolt or Itch.io for more info.
Some of you may have played the classic games Stick Soldiers 1 and 2 by WhiteSpaceUnlimited. Stick Soldiers belongs to the list of small, humble games that manage to captivate our interest and have made many of us spend a lot of our free time and have a lot of fun. (you can download them here: SS1, SS2)

Stick Soldiers has remained discontinued for the past years after the hiatus of the development team and the cancellation of the long-awaited sequel Stick Soldiers 3 by Andrew Russell Studios.

For a long time, I have aspired to revive the Stick Soldiers series by making a fan sequel to the game. Since school's start, I spent about a whole year working on a Game Maker / Ultimate3D project, aiming to evolve it to a complete and worthy sequel, which I called "Stick Soldiers: Encore". Second year of school …
