It’s spring cleaning month for Ship of Heroes, Heroic Games’ Casey McGeever has told forumgoers on the official site.

“What we mean by this is that we are reviewing our game code, looking at how it is organized, and then making it quicker and more efficient to compile through a set a changes,” he says. “It’s complex and a bit grindy to do, so we force ourselves to do it periodically.” He says the studio is working on picking the best maps, testing character models and costumes, iterating on animation code to reduce lag, improving buildings on the ship, creating new props, and even working on the new healing powerset.

“Basically everyone is working away at their jobs, and we’re making steady progress,” McGeever explains.

In other SOH news, you may not see many MMORPGs on Instagram, but Ship of Heroes is giving it a go – check out some of the brand-new screenshots it’s put up so far:

One thing I notice from those screenshots that concerns me a little is something I experienced in Champions Online and hated. I notice most of the characters have that shiny almost plastic sheen to them texturally. Its ick. I want flesh to look like flesh, material to look like material, metal to look like metal etc.. not everything have that glossy plastic shine.

It may just be distance and lighting..I hope so..?

the first skin mesh SoH started using was great for sweaty post work out SwordBlossom but looked wrong on some others, so new skin meshes are being created (kind of a big job). Though some of the better screen caps are of cyborgs and space rangers, there are plain cloth textures available as well. So, not everything will be shiny like metal or plastic. The instagram has a lot of images on it, in no particular order, but it’s worth looking through with about 120 pics on it today (from over the past two years, some are better than others.)
