A Showcase of the New Archer and Navigation System

in Shadow Kai by santoki

The archer design was too child-like and flimsy, see the changes made for the new Archer look and feel.

The problem with the old model was that the archer looked more like a boy than it did of a full grown warrior. The switch of design did take some extra time I was not too fond of, but the end result seems a lot more promising.  With the addition of the new model, I decided to take some considerations made into the navigation system and have found it quite cool to play around with.

New Archer

The Archer’s shoulder was broadened to give it a little more tougher look and was given a bow for obvious reasons. The Archer was recolored with red because, frankly it was hard to see in the green grass and it seems to really make the archer stand out as a foe to reckon with.

The New Navigation System

The picture above shows the navigation system and the console system working together. The new navigation system runs off of a drag-and-drop movement. Basically, press on any ground (grass) and drag it to the direction of view you prefer. Upon release, the map will memorize the end point and allow you to go on drag and dropping to further view the map.

The units you select will automatically be centered with a small ease effect. This will allow you to fully see all of their surroundings and optimize your strategy without having to drag all around.

Have fun navigating around the world with 5 characters randomly spawning. Can you find the most powerful unit? 🙂

    I’m sorry. it works perfect on my computer, but because I do not have the s9, I’m unable to debug it on the actual device. If anyone can confirm this bug, I could take a further look into this.
