Auto Fire v0.5.12: The Spruceining


I've been laying the foundation for a trailer over the last couple weeks, so most of my progress in Auto Fire has come in the form of cleanup, although there are a few gameplay tweaks, mainly to make that early experience a bit better. On the upside, there are less-soldier-y gang members, a cleaned up HUD, some new lighting and vehicle trails, check it out.


Starting next week, I'll be able to work on Auto Fire full-time for a while, so prepare for some meaty updates.  The goals are to significantly improve the player movement, reveal more options when driving, and fleshing out systems that have only been teased, like a more alive overworld.

See you on the road!

  • General
    • Upgraded to Unity 2019.1, which seems to have gained a little performance.
  • UI
    • Cleaned up UI
    • The equipment quotes in the info popup are now aligned correctly
    • Revised weapon icons
    • Revised window frames, etc.
    • Removed the skid meter behind the car, since it didn't look great.
    • The player can turn the skid meter on or off in the options screen
    • Remove random encounter dialogues until they are ready.
  • Visuals
    • Revised the road decals to make for softer edges
    • "Soldiers" are now desert warriors
    • Foot gangers now use the proper pose to match the weapon they are wielding.
    • Added headlights to the player car when in a ruined city
    • Lowered overall brightness of the city map, so that the light sources could stand out.
    • Increased the light brightness for streetlights and barrels and fire.
    • Revised the trails from the taillights of vehicles entirely.  They use a new system that makes them very smooth.
    • Improved the detection of offroad when a vehicle is driving, for visuals and gameplay ramifications
  • Audio
    • Gangers now use battle cries rather than military radio transmissions when they spot the player
    • Vehicles now rev their engine instead of honk when the spot the player
  • Balance
    • Improved the visibility of enemy cars (they were very short)
    • Increased the range of junkthrowers since they were still kind of frustrating to use.
    • Adjusted population cap to accommodate new fuel dumps and watchtowers.
    • Fuel dumps are now guarded by flamer gangers
