Javelin Unveiled!

Black Jacket has uploaded a new video to Youtube today - a video of an untextured Javelin, the new map-in-progress. Reminder: it's untextured at the moment, so don't expect anything pretty.

Looks really impressive!

And the funny thing is, that the look without textures is also in some way cool.

Btw at first I thought of a new weapon when I read Javelin.

It looks awesome, can't wait. I also weirdly like the untextured look. Reminds me quite of bit of something like Darwinia. I'm sure it'll look even better with textures, though!

It's definitely not like every other map.

I'm working on texturing now. But we've got other things going on, so progress won't be super fast. I'll post updates as often as I can.

@zzcool Sorry for the long wait. It's just me making levels, and we've got to pay bills, so progress is slow. I've been wanting to get a new level out since we launched, but have just been tied up. I'll get it done as soon as possible. This new level should have a pretty unique feel to it.

I almost wish it could stay looking like this. It reminds me of cybersled.

I doubt it would look like this in game though. This is a rendered flythrough right?

I'll try to post the first textured bit asap. I hope once you see that, you'll think it looks better than the flat lit level!

That is a rendered flythrough, but the lighting model is very simple. Final lighting should be pretty solid.

I was thinking older Wipeout games, myself. It'd be neat if there was a client-side option to have the game as normal or flat textures just to give it some variation when playing
