I am back from college for winter break, so I have much more time to work on Lugaru 2 programming 8) Most of our efforts recently have been on content creation; we now have most of the weapon models done, most of the furniture textures done, and many of the sounds and songs completed.
Yesterday I spent a lot of time adapting the Lugaru point-constraint physics system for rigid body dynamics and collisions, so now arbitrary objects can move around the terrain and collide with each other realistically. Here are some pictures of a fairly standard physics example: a stack of crates falling over. I gave Turner the ability to force push and pull so I could test out physics :)
3D sound is also working, so it sounds right when the crates hit each other or fall on the grass, and when Turner steps on the ground at different speeds.
