Default Modular building hell / monster update

I'm currently in modular house hell, attempting to reconfigure the modular house assets so that they use a smaller texture space, create fewer draw-calls to the graphics card and are easy to place in levels. It is an extremely tedious process but, in an effort to ensure the best performance possible, it is something that must be done.

Some texture / model improvements happened along the way, so that may be noticeable in future screenshots once this is all done. These modular pieces will provide a ton of flexibility to modders though, allowing them to go crazy creating all sorts of unique building layouts.

Also, we've gotten a few new enemy models finished but it is going to take a while to get through all the animations and get them in-game. So, that's something to look forward to. Here is a sneak peak of the "scavenger".

you lot amaze me!!! not only are you going to make this game completely modder friendly, (which is a good thing) but you also add a kick ass monster in the game as well (just reread, so this is one of the new monsters that have been finished there abouts, utter neat

and it looks utter badass, and not to be trifled with, (but they got to all die so killing them will be equally as fun

question, how many monsters are in the game currently? and are there plans to add more? (which by this rate seems possible)

awesome work to all involved, GD is shaping up very nicely, nice update, can't wait for more

PS, the modular house system sounds cool, any chance of seeing a sneak peak on the house designs that are possible? or is that too early?

but keep up the great work you are doing

I know a few people who will be happy killing rat mutants...

Now that I think of it, they remind me of balverines...

AWWWWWW YEAAAAAAAH! Ratmen are awesome. Albino-rats are true terror. >:3

Really cool that you try to make this game as modder-friendly as possible. I am really looking forward to work with the new tools and of course playing the game (though it's a tie between both playing/modding atm).

the dev team can rest assured that these monsters will die a fiery death and the amount of monsters and how they look, will not go unnoticed either

so bring them on, so we the players can send their butts back to the hells that spawned them
