I’ve been working on D2TM the past few months and wanted to release a new version with some major improvements.
One of these new ‘major’ features is zooming in/out of the battlefield. This meant rewriting the rendering of pretty much anything on it.
Here is an example:
As you can see, zooming all the way out works , as well the other way around.
Funny thing is that the Radar/Outpost is less effective this way, especially with the 64×64 (ok 62×62) maps of Dune 2. Hence, we need bigger maps 😉 (and perhaps another reason for having an Radar/Outpost in the game).
Thanks to Arjen van der Ende for helping me out, sparring with me when I got stuck while working on the old code base + render engine.
