Devblog #3 Clues and more

Welcome back to another devblog, there is a lot of exciting news this week


Logo


Following up on last week, a new logo is being created and is almost finished! The very talented artist has been working hard, and we are happy to be able to show you a sneak peek


We hope you like it and can't wait for it to be completed!


Clue scrolls


On the agenda this week was clue scrolls, making the maps render at a location was easy enough, as I've done previous work with maps.

The colored and grayed maps just didn't look right, so after a decent amount of work and a few helpful tips online, managed to get a sketch outline of the surrounding terrain. We are very happy how it has turned out, let us know what you think!

Click to enlarge.

Pictures in order are: Original colors, Gray scale, Zoomed out sketch, Sketch making process, First attempt zoomed in sketch, Final clue scroll sketch

Other improvements this week include: more commands, placeholders for scoreboard, and improved entity pathing (still not 100% for smaller mobs), viaversion added so clients on 1.14 can join (we will not be upgrading to 1.14 due to performance issues)
