    Interface evolution in Wild Terra

    [​IMG]

    Interface’s purpose
    Graphical user interface (GUI) is a type of interface that allows players to interact with a game. It should be handy and practical, but, at the same time, stylish and good-looking. How usable an interface is determines friendliness of the game to new players and mass audience. And when it looks nice it becomes hard to cease playing.

    Beginning stage of development. First interface
    After all basic functions of the game were fully prepared, we started to think about the design and style creation for the interface. For this task we hired a freelancer, who had examples of his work suitable for Wild Terra. A budget of the project wasn’t big and we made a deal for a moderate cost, but with a 50% prepayment. Soon enough we got first versions of the interface and determined the visual style, but after this the freelance suddenly disappeared. The rest of the work was finished by Mikhail — our art-director.

    At that stage of development our budget wasn’t enough to order a set of icons, so we decided to use renders of 3D-models as item icons. As action icon we used our own sketches.

    Necessity of the current interface update
    The project continued to evolve, but the interface remained unchanged. We didn’t like the old icons, and they even started to irritate our eyes. We added new features and widened in-game functions, and along with this, the current interface had to be constantly updated. It wasn’t very handy as well. This continued for about a year, before we decided to change the interface — reconsider visual, technical and practical parts of the interface to create a perfect version. We also kept in mind that in the future we’ll need to add: new windows and new functions to the existing ones.

    Work on the new interface and icons
    A talented artist Linara joined our team, her main purpose was to rework icons and design new interface — elaborate a unique GUI for Wild Terra. The item images were renewed step by step: each update a new portion of redrawn icons appeared in the game.

    [​IMG]

    When all 3D-model renders were replaced with pictures, we started to redesign interface. We tried several versions with different element placement and scale before choosing the one that suited us most of all. After that, Linara got down to work on windows, buttons, and other elements of UI design.

    [​IMG]

    Here are some examples of how the windows changed:

    Oncoming development of the game and interface
    Completely reworked interface in Wild Terra well speed up and simplify adding new features and improving the existing ones:
    • active abilities;
    • system of character skill perfection;
    • craft and construction chains refreshing and adding new schemes/recipes;
    Development and implementation of these features will take time, but, right now, we hope you’ll like new interface and possibilities of the game!

    Mounts and tamed animals. Details of this innovation

    [​IMG]
    On a Closed Tests well underway mounts testing, however, up to this moment we have not talked about how will work this innovation. Now not all implemented as described below, and some of this is just the ideas that will be revised before the final introduction of the mechanic.

    A special item will be added to the game, which allows you to tame wild animals. After the taming will be open a possibilities of feeding, riding (for large animals) and other options. Each player will be able to tame the more than one animal. To care for animals will be added a special construction, such as a stall, as well as items. If you stop to feed and care for tamed animals, then after a while it will become wild again.

    [​IMG]

    Like the any other animal, they can also die. For premium or paid mounts, will probably be provided for the possibility of resurrection. It should be noted that the tamed animals will not be able to hide in the your inventory: you either are on top of him, or they are free to walk around the map.

    In the future, we may add a mount equipment, as well as other options for their use (eg, storage of items).

    Animal riding is already implemented at the Closed Test server, and the remaining features of this taming mechanics the would be made later.
