Last Dream II – Map Menu Continued

Posted by:

In our last post, we showed the development of the Map Menu. Most of our recent effort has been focused on creating map screenshots as an alternative view for the map menus. The default view will be the “passable/impassable” layer; however, you can toggle to the map screenshot as shown above which is pre-generated and loaded when needed.

The screenshot below shows that the “screenshot” view also supports panning/zooming.

We now have the mechanics largely working and we’ll be focusing on ...

Map Menu Development

Our map menu development continues. We’re now mostly into the polishing phase and have added several important elements to have map menu including:

  • A map title showing the location and continent (top center)

  • A legend showing the meaning of the various symbols

  • A controls section to show how to pan/zoom/toggle the map

Last Dream II World Map – Part 1

Our recent development effort has been focused on developing the art and tilemaps for the Last Dream II World Map. The World Map had previously been laid out, but only with the prior stock art and older engine. Our focus so far has been:

  • Ocean backdrop – 1000 tiles x 500 tiles (~4x larger than the Last Dream I World Map). The ocean also features a shader that creates a wave-like motion.
  • Drawing and filling the outline of four continents: Thule (lower ...
