Update from the 3.week in april 2018 [v0.0.5]

Hello together,

this is a small update about the 3.week in april only. Because what we did is worth an update 🙂

Last week we worked hard on the loadingsystem of Summer Islands. Because createJS provides also the great PreloadJS JavaScript library. So for this mechanic we had to change a lot of things for example with the spriteSheets to some extra JSONs and so on. Especially with sounds in the future we have now the architecture to load all the files in the beginning to have everything in the cache.  We know, we should have done this month ago. Now i would say every Gamedeveloper needs to do this right away.

So for this loading time in the beginning we integrated a small preview movable animation. We can change this easily in the future if we create something better.

Additionally we use this black loading screen also if you start a match. But unless you play a bigger map the game needs only a few seconds to  initialize.

When everything is loaded an animation of the main menu starts. We do not really want to specify it. It’s just a simple animation. But it makes a good atmosphere and you like to play a match. 🙂

And now enjoy the start of the game:

In the next weeks we’re working hard for a stable version. But probably we need a few more weeks for that especially with the fine tuning. 🙂
