  1. There is a global wind zone that the speedtree shaders use. Grass used a constant shader value, but now a global shader variable. Weather will be changing the value now, once I get to it.
  2. Yes. No other changes for 1m are planned for A20 apart from bug fixes like AI often attacking while crawling. Wandering sleepers probably not A20. Water not A20. Mostly been fixing bugs, so they don't all get stacked up at the end of A20. The weather simulation has been improved for A20. Weather changes more often, for shorter duration and with a more controlled randomness. Stronger fog can happen. Wind speed should change the now variable tree and grass movement, but that has not been done yet.
  3. RWG code changes are maybe 75% done, but there is a lot of designer content being worked on that goes with those changes.
  4. This is probably an issue with occlusion. You can try turning it off in the video settings.
  5. A crude estimate would be early fall.
  6. Saw some new town pictures Monday and was impressed with the look and density of the streets and buildings. My kids, who are adults, thought it was cool.
  7. I get 6-8 usually. Had food poisoning Sunday, so still a bit tired from that. I lost 5 pounds in 2 days, but was wanting to lose some more weight anyway. Working from home is a nice bonus time wise. Years ago, I used to commute to Chicago and that was 10 hours a week of wasted time. Probably, but I don't deal with that.
  8. No changes planned, but what you describe may get adjusted someday. Yes, if they were like that, but all those objects add draw calls, so meshes are generally one piece. We may have a few extra parts at some point. Like bandits may have some of the armor as separate objects. It would be possible, but I think we have spent enough time on dynamic music as it is. Sure. A few days here and there. I took two days off a few weeks ago for a 4 day weekend vacation in IA. Yesterday I was off closing on my new house. Lots of moving stuff in my future. A lot of meetings today, but determined a reason some sleepers were not spawning for the designers and fixed, but need to finish testing tomorrow and maybe adjust some of the spawn delays.
  9. Not likely in A20. May get tweaked someday. Right now it is the same as A19. If the seat mod gets done in time for A20, the 4x4 will probably seat 4. Other vehicle seating has not been decided. No. Pathing has not changed. If we add 1m pathing after A20, it still would require designers to put them in 1m holes in POIs.
  10. There are some optimizations in A20 that were not moved to 19.5, so there are more, but have not counted the amounts or how big they are. No assignment. I just like to talk and as programming lead, know a lot about what we are doing. Most devs just do their jobs and don't visit their company forums. I saw the preview rendering of it two days ago, so it is coming along.
  11. 1 No 2 Sorry 3 The end of time
  12. Zombies crouching and dogs digging holes have NOTHING to do with each other.
  13. Players will probably never be able to do that. As of last week, zombies can crouch down and crawl based on head clearance. Pathing still works on 2m heights, so we are not fully 1m yet, but crawling fixes bugs with zombies getting stuck in tight places.
  14. A20 will be on Unity 2020.3.x. We will be doing one more update for A20, hence the x. The problem with new Unity graphics features is they tend to not support the built in render pipeline and we don't plan on switching to HDRP until our next game, since it will be a large amount of work. Should be a separate count.
  15. Not in A20. We have considered it. There could be some variations, but not A20. Seeing/hearing is in xml, but I think most zombies are the same. I don't think it is an end goal. Torque is engine power. Increases acceleration and would determine top speed. We have plans, but may not be a20. Don't know.
  16. We could add it, but features like, if we add them, will probably not come until near gold. Sure or whatever we want it to be doing while it is not out to kill you. Bandit sleepers may roam around too.
  17. I don't think he uses the forums. 1 Follow you around 2 Maybe no 3 No if 2 is no 4 Carry stuff. Maybe heal. Don't know if that is staying 5 No battery, so it must be nuclear 6 They do not care about each other 7 Yes. Don't know 8 No
  18. Football player and cheerleader are gone. You can hope. Tweaking will happen right up until gold and after.
  19. Not what I work on. Art and design will do what they think best and have time for.
  20. You can change it in vehicles.xml. <property name="velocityMax" value="9, 14"/> (normal, turbo) <property name="motorTorqueMinQ" value="5000"/> (was for quality levels, but we just have 1 quality now) <property name="motorTorqueMaxQ" value="5000"/>
  21. We have no control over that. Unity would have to support it.
  22. Probably no. We support what Unity supports in the built in rendering pipeline except for TAA. Maybe someday for TAA.
  23. Wandering hordes should not be changed. They are random, so perhaps you are just randomly getting none.
