Synthwave Update #9 – The Abyss
Tools of the Trade:
VisualSVN and TortoiseSVN
What is VisualSVN?
VisualSVN (https://www.visualsvn.com/) is an easy to install visual tool for installing and managing a Subversion server. Subversion (SVN) is an open source version control system (VCS). A VCS manages files and directories, and the changes made to them, over time. This allows you to recover older versions of your data or examine the history of how your data changed. Subversion is a general system that can be used to manage any collection of files.
Internal Milestone 008:
NPCs, NPCs Everywhere!
One of the things we were most worried about from a production and budget standpoint was the amount of Non-Playable Characters (NPCs) we were planning on having. One of our levels is currently based in a train station during rush hour. So to be somewhat believable, we knew we would need to have more than just a handful of NPC models. For anyone that hasn’t made and paid for a game to be made before, that means big bucks! We started looking for an alternative to having them all custom made.
