I’ve added edge shading to the latest build, 298 (click here to play). It’s not perfect yet, but it’s actually quite handy for seeing which items are on which height levels. I also made a small optimization to lighting to help render somewhat faster, although there are additional optimizations to speed this along.
Here’s a screenshot with edge shading and lighting turned on:
8BitMMO is a MMO game that is still very early in development. Right now there’s only one weapon (stab things with your sword!), one NPC (slay lawyercats!), and a couple basic tilesets (build a fort!). But there’s enough content you can start to see what the game is like, and a number of us have already had fun playing. 🙂
How to get it: No download, it plays in your browser. Just launch 8bit.vg
WASD – movement
Enter – to chat
I – Show inventory screen. Click an item in your inventory to make it your active item
Spacebar – use active item (click sword and use spacebar to stab things)
How to play:
Look around near the spawn point for CAT5 ports, which is where LawyerCats spawn. (This is a super-serious game. )
Slay LawyerCats and collect the loot
Once you have enough loot, press H to open the shop. Buy stuff to build with
To build, use inventory to select an item to place in world, then press R to drop item — click where it goes
Advanced building tip: hold SHIFT to set Z height
Advanced building tip: use the Z Axis Lock in the bottom right as another way of setting Z height
That’s pretty much it for this build… hope you enjoy!
