It’s a bit uncertain when the next release will be, because the progress towards the critical features has slowed down dramatically. The pilus is still in the plans for the next release. It may get dropped if it causes extra delay.
Nice, I’m surprised y’all’re already prototyping multicellular stuff.
One thing I’m curious about/would like to request: Is the cell death sound everything, or will you get a specific sound for your type of death too. If it’s the first one, I’d personally like to hear something specific for your unique type of death, to not have every death sound the same. (For example, if you die to your ATP running out it should sound a bit different that if you get pilus’d)
Also, Nick’s auto-evo update is absolutely massive, and I just don’t have the time to read it and will try later.
It’s prototyping for https://forum.revolutionarygamesstudio.com/t/3d-editor-plans/628
That likely depends on how much will there is to make a ton of variants. Also none of the new sounds have been put in the game yet, as that was the kind of stuff @Untrustedlife did before starting his new job (we are all hoping he’ll start contributing more again).
I have to say that I love this bit of concept art, and specifically this creature:
I just really like his look for some reason.
why is the pilus no longer being worked on.
Where does that come from? It isn’t mentioned anywhere in the last couple dev blogs, except for one where they showed a model, which would point to it still being worked on. The only other ‘mention’ of the pilus is that it’s still grayed out in the latest screenshot from the editor, and that’s because it’s just not finished yet.
i mean implemented into the game.
also when will we get the thermoplast or bioluminescent vacuole?
The pilus was never implemented in the game.
And with the other question, it’s the same answer as usual: nobody knows yet
i mean it was being put into the game in github but it is no longer on the release list.
The next release is happening soon. Things that were not ready were thrown out of the milestone. Pilus is one of those things where multiple models have been made, but 0 programming has been done for it.
