The new name has not yet been decided but it won't include the words *Halo* as we want to be legal.The first build of engine Solitude-Z has been givin for testing purpose's.
Solitude-Z is a modified quake engine based off the ZQuake source code. We have removed unneeded features and replaced them with more worth while features.So far we have modified the quake engine to support half life (one) map format which means that we will have a 256 pallet for each texture instead of a 256 pallet for the whole game.here are a few screenshots of our engine running counter strike maps.
Isn't that an improvement?
We have also started animating our spartan model.Here is a sneak peak at the spartan model rotating holding the trusty assault rifle. Video could not be displayed
Thats all for now , i hope this was enough for you guys ( Three updates in less then a week, are we going mad !) Please show your support by voting. Getting into the top 100 would be great , couldnt ask for more.
