This week we added back our pathfinding system. Npcs are able to follow a player. Find its destination and reach a new location by itself. We also implemented a tracking system hidden in the map that help npc to reach their destination when they are far away to prevent our npcs to request to much cpu on the server.
We made the switch to 2D characters into 3D characters. The characters still move on a 2D grid but from a 3D environment. Switching from 2D characters to 3D needed to add new direction to our animations. Like the rotation of the character and its z position in the map. There is still a lot of work to do to make sure everything looks perfect but we have a good start.
The roadmap is getting more stuff added every week, for now we have our general objectives and the direction we are taking with the game.

We released a new website that will serve as the first place to get information on the game. We will be adding a roadmap very soon and more videos and media to explain the concept of the game.
Thanks again for your support guys it means a lot to us.
Here's the current roadmap planned for the alpha stage of the game. It might not be much yet, but we are working hard at brining you more content very soon!
Tank, bus, speed racer. In the game the car editor will give you the opportunity to build your own custom cars from block you crafted or scavenged in the game world or won in any gamemode. You will be able to upgrade and paint your vehicle anyway you want.
The first combat system will be more melee based at first. With either swords, daggers or hammers you will be able to crush your enemies or maybe your friends if that's what you want. We want the combat system to be user friendly and working with controllers easily.
Grid based system that will allow the player to place objects. Scavenge, craft or buy item to either decorate or add utilities to your home.
You will be able to take on a main storyline and/or many side quest and fun stories within the citywars universe. Visit glorious cities like finity or redsky. More information on the universe very soon.
Want to play with your friend on the same screen, it's never been easier. You will even be able to create guest accounts so your friend can have is own persona.
Want to watch some videos with friends, go to your local cinema in-game and watch youtube videos and more while chatting with your friends.
With the proximity voice chat talk to your friends, your citizens or even your enemies. Integrated inside the game it will be very easy to communicate and have fun with the community.
If you own some land you will be able to edit it the way you want. So you will be able to build houses and factories or even shops.
Like to help the community and create more content for the game. With this module you will be able to register and help us make the game even better and create your own story lines.
This is the first gamemode implemented in the game. It will mostly be made for the duration of the alpha. Protect the central beacon and kill the bandits before they steal it. Mine, gather and then craft weapons / armor to fight better.
This gamemode will be part of the game story. You will be either a guard or a noob depending on if your new or not in the game. More on that gamemode later.
Build or buy the fastest car to win races, or take part on desert race and destroy your opponent with your team in the same vehicle.
Go to your local arena and play some deathmatch gladiator style. Bet on the winner or loser.
When you do bad things, you may get caught. Even imprisoned, when that happens you will need to play the prison gamemode. Either escape or play out your sentence. Work, eat, sleep and gain loot or make friends. Find ways to escape or become the boss of the prison.
Survive against hordes of zombie trying to overrun your team. Scavenge, gather and craft weapons and armors to survive longer. Craft turrets and other defences. Upgrade and gain skills. Unlock new levels.
