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.

100 Maps

Stick Veterans has only recently reached the "100 maps milestone", a feat for which I need to thank you guys.


Stick Veterans (or "I never thought this moment would come")

A personal project of mine based on the Stick Soldiers series, a project I first posted about 2 years ago, has finally seen the light with its first public version being uploaded on Gamejolt and Itch.io.


Stick Veterans online: Good news & Bad news

After loads of work, online multiplayer for Stick Veterans seems to be progressing very well. In fact, it is nearly complete, as showing in recent tests.

Today I ran the first playtest with 3 people; we connected over Hamachi, a free VPN solution, and it pretty much went smoothly (except for some non-critical bugs).

Bad news is that LAN connections might be the only thing supported, with little hope for worldwide online games. I already mentioned that in the game's web pages (Itch.io post / Gamejolt post) but I shall lay down the whole story here.


In commercial games, online multiplayer is achieved by putting up dedicated 24/7 servers (preferably in various locations throughout the world) to which the players connect.

In non-commercial games (like Stick Veterans), we have to make do without servers, as they cost money (non-trivial amounts of it). As such, we simply allow any player to act as a server themselves, and other players connect to them. This is called peer-to-peer netwo…
