I've also been customizing the platform panels and now I'm officially happy with them. The problem I faced at the start was: how can I make a chamber like this one replacing the square panels with the circles. Wouldn't there be lots of holes and the panels won't be connected:
Eventually I decided on making a connector with a design on it. The game will be set in an exterior floating world much like Qbeh:
In a matter of fact, Qbeh was creating using the same engine I'm creating Blue Box on (Unity)
So we've got the connectors, the gates, what is next?
That's right, the Pause Time Receptors!
In the video you will see, I shoot at the cube receptor and a letter P (Stands for Paused) appears. After around 5 seconds later, the P goes down. This means, when the letter P is up, I spawn cubes with 0 gravity and 0 Drag causing them to float in midair. Once the P goes down I spawn cubes which are normal again.
Be aware that the things are just plain cubes because this is beta stage (Mainly coding).When I start the actual design, it will look better. That is why the gun and platforms look different to the cube platforms.
Now for the video:
