Cave Defender Devlog – Week of October 1, 2018

Since January 1st of this year, I’ve been keeping a log of my daily work on Cave Defender. I’m sharing this log on a weekly basis so you can find out how development is going with the game. In the last week I:

  • Added to my build-switching script the ability to reset define symbols and the VR SDK list. Also 2017.4 LTS works great except it crashes every time I quit. I sent one bug report but haven’t heard back yet. Posted screenshot saturday.
  • More lighting baking, planning out next tasks.
  • More core gameplay design work and regenerated lighting in another scene that required it.
  • More core gameplay design work.
  • More design (on paper!) work.
  • Planning and a little bit of redesign based on ideas that came out of the Full Indie Summit and Oculus Connect.
  • Regenerated some lighting data due to the Unity upgrade (will have to do more). Found out that 360 capture is only available in the Unity Recorder for 2018.1 and later…so I installed the latest stable on my PC (2018.2) and world-space canvas capture (all the UI) doesn’t show up in the 360 shots. It’s fixed in the 2018.3 beta version so I installed that, and  verified it works there.
