Hi just a quick update with some screenshots for now. I've been working on getting soldiers into the game. Currently they just stream forwards from the trenches over no-man's land, and subsequently get exploded by the artillery shells (also new). Sometimes they shoot each other with their rifles! Hopefully be adding some enhanced AI to them soon.
Then to take a break from this, I coded in some nice effects - wingtip vortices, only visible on fast prop planes & jets. They look great when the plane flips! Also added in some stars. The feeling of punching through a stormy cloud layer to a nice, bright, clear night sky is amazing!
I'll be doing a new progress video soon, to show off these new features. In the meantime, enjoy these screenshots:
