Hello it's me, well Remnants has finally started to gain momentum again as far as making progress. Last night we started to implement more player ships to choose from as well as the hangar. The hanger will be where most of the ship and player changes are made. As far as the new ships, I decided it would be easier to implement multiple ship options and selection if I completely rewrote the ship class. It wasn't hard to rewrite just time consuming.
Now for the ships, the first ship is of course the most plane Jane, all sub-par but fairly even stats. But as you gain experience you will gain access to new ships with different play styles. There will be a slightly larger slower ship, that will be able to have multiple shields and higher hp. As well as ships that can hold more bombs or fly faster shoot faster etc. Each ship will be able to be upgraded, we are hoping this give players the ability to "create" a ship that matches their play style.
The next blog will focus more on the hangar and economy model of the game.
