Today I had a fascinating opportunity to look over the shoulder of our graphic designer Petr, who was having a good time in the construction editor. The creative possibilities are becoming massive. And to think this is just the beginning.
The available building blocks now include spheres, slopes and otherwise curvy-shaped pieces thanks to the diligent work of Vašek Růžička, who has been modeling his butt off to create the 100+ building blocks we already have available in the editor.
His brother, Petr Růžička, focused on the good looks. Creating razor-sharp textures, fine-tuning the shaders for each material, bending light and generally making sure that the stuff you guys are going to build looks extra crispy.
Thanks bros, good stuff.
Props should also go to Pavel, who brought the whole editor to life. He's one of the code-masters and he had a lot of impact on how well all the bricks fit together. He's also bringing you the color pallet! That means you will have 16 million colors at your disposal to truly stand out from the crowd. Are you ready?!
Power to You
