Development – Rewriting the material system 01


Another day and another blog on the development of skyline.

We have decided after working closely with our users that the current material system is not efficient enough and requires too much work in order to get your assets into skyline and ready to use in the game.

Aurasoft UK (Skyline Game Engine) are official partners with OSVR

New Skyline Development Blog – The Written Journey Begins


Horizons

Hi Friends we have decided after a few community requests to set up a development blog to post our current tasks and musings.

If we come across any interesting technology or art information that would be of use with game tech or it just floats our boat we will write about it here. So basically anything from game development to art and imagery, well that is the plan and you know what they say about the “best laid plans etc….” lol

We decided to go for the blog route rather than posting to the forums (here: Skyline Forums) as it enables users to browse any previous articles and we think it will be more time effective for us.
