Road To A First Playable Build - Dev Blog #36

Updated: Apr 14, 2021

We have some news to share regarding our very first playable build of Techblox.

Currently, we’ve been trying to solve one major issue with wheels which has been troubling us since the early Gamecraft days, which may take a significant amount of time if they end up requiring a substantial rework. Due to how fundamental it is that wheels are implemented correctly, it is likely that the very first playable build will only allow you to build a vehicle using all of the cubes and parts we’ve previously shared, with simulation/driving the vehicle coming in a future build.

The goal of this first demo will be to let you create vehicles that look similar to the Camry that we’ve been sharing over the week. We still have some work to do before we can release a build that just includes building. Such as:

- Removing Steam dependencies from the previous project so that we can share it casually with you it over Discord

- Finishing the reskin of the UI

- New splash screen

- Add a mirror/flip tool

- More shapes

- A modular windows system for car windows

Once we’ve added the above, we believe you’ll all have a lot of fun building several vehicles (saving already works!). We can’t wait to see what you create.

A playable Pre-Pre-Pre-Pre-Pre-Alpha is now available! Make sure to visit our home page at http://www.techblox.com/ to sign up to play it!
