New Update to ALPHA v 0.9 - Space and SciFi Maps, Lossless Zooming, Asset Library, Tiled Export, Worldmap assets and more!

Today we have updated our ALPHA to version 0.9. Apart from possible hotfixes, this is going to be our last update as ALPHA. The next update will be around end of February and will then transition into our Closed BETA.

Here are some of the new features that we have added with this update:

SPACE-Maps!
We have finally implemented our first draft of space props and textures! This is not the full set yet and we will be adding new props in the coming weeks, but it should give you a good toolset to create you first star bases, spaceships and outposts.

Asset Library & Loading improvements
We have implemented our first version of the asset library.

Lossless Zooming
We have implemented a new rendering mechanics, that improves the quality of your maps remarkably. Everytime, you zoom in/out, we dynamically change the quality of the assets to fit the current zoom level. This also applies if you decide to export your maps on a higher scale-level.

 

Tiled Export - the last (?) step to limitless map sizes.
In the past updates we have experimented with a new approach to rendering maps. The first step was to add a map size tool, that allows to change the size of the map on the fly. According to this, we also changed the mechanics on how to render a map based on the current viewport, instead of always rendering the complete map. So in theory you should be able to create maps of limitless size.

World map assets
I didn’t want to open a complete new task here, since we already have enough to work on, but Debbie was so kind to draw some world map assets for us, that are now also available in the asset library. They are just a few, but I have the feeling, that Debbie has just started and we will see more soon.
