It's still bare bones at this point, but little by little I'm working my way through some smaller assets. I also started working on a robot that will be the main enemy throughout the factory scenes.
Obviously not finished yet, but you can probably get the gist of where I'm going with it.
And lastly, I started working on a conveyor belt yesterday that ended semi-miserabely. After attempting to rig up the in-scale version of it that will be running the entire length of the wall of the factory (some 70 blender units), I realised I should probably prototype it, or redesign it to work in chunks, as the full length one crashed blender. (oops). So, I started on a super simple prototype, and didn't quite make it to fully-working completion.
The rig by itself works fine. The cog spins nicely with the rig. And the belt works not at all.
This will be what I will be working to complete today.
