Last thread was bump-locked. Starting a new thread because I'm a narcissist, but also trying to salvage anything worthwhile from the last thread into copypasta. :)

After getting frustrated at MudBox and listening to some feedback here, I've decided to try and learn from the ground up using Blender.

ITT: Beginning 3D in Blender

Specifically, I think I'm going to stick to this playlist and try to get 100% through it before moving on:

I use this batch rename tool:

https://blenderartists.org/forum/showthread.php?272086-Addon-Item-Panel-amp-Batch-Naming

Pretty useful when you have a lot of things to rename, like objects, bones, vertex groups, etc. before porting the model to another software that uses different naming conventions, which normally would've taken you half an hour.

This video isn't quite the holy grail I was hoping it would be. UV especially from Blender to Unreal has been quite tricky. In fact, Unreal as a whole has been a HUGE chunk to bite off, so much so that I'm considering just going back to Blender only, and maybe joining a team as an artist rather than a solo (no-game) dev.

I just saw that the BornCG series I was following is up to like video 72 now. I think I'm going to go back through them to catch myself back up.

Lets talk about going full solo in game development. Why do you think it's good? Why do you think it's bad?

I think it's the best option if you don't make games to make money. If you do it because you want to, because you like doing it, then it should be your work, from top to bottom. If more people work on one game then it looses character, but that might not even be considered bad since different games provide a variety of gameplay styles.

Would you agree that games are the highest form of art? They combine all other arts and add something that neither one has: interaction.You can't experience a game without interacting with it. So, if you're making games as a form of art, then it should be YOUR art, it should capture and embody your own personality.

Making a game solo is good because you don't need to coordinate anything with anyone, so you can apply changes immediately. The downside is that you have to split your attention between several different tasks and if you get vision-tunneled on one specific aspect of a game, then it might be hard to get back into the other parts of the game.

For anything more complicated than a webgame, however, I think you need more than one person. Hell, even some of the DOS mods that I've worked on have had four people contributing resources to them. It's just easier when you have a specialist doing his own thing.

It's also easier to lose motivation when you're a solo dev, especially if you're strapped for cash or no one cares about your stuff. Having another person to motivate you and to talk with is useful.

Anyway, transmission over.

Im working on a RTS game, and i want to generate the map not based on a heightmap but on a map of tiles. The tilemap is just a 2x2 integer array that holds terrain IDs, they can represent water, shore, flatland, swamp, mountains and so on. Height and texture is dependent on the ID, not on a heightmap and blendmap as usual. Is this a shit idea? If yes, whats a better method to achieve RTS maps? The scale isn't a battlefield like AoE or Starcraft, but more on par with /gsg/ or Totalwar games, that's why the system seems to make sense to me.

Assuming there isn't a better method, how do i do proper terrain smoothing? I've got simple smoothing working, but corners are fucked, and after two hours of trying to develop an advanced algorithm my shit looks like pic related. I've tried to subdivide each tile into 9 zones, which each smooth out based on their 4 cornerpoints, with the middle zone not smoothing out at all. Turns out that this shit is hard to debug and im giving up by posting here.

Additionally, how do i get more than 4 textures on my terrain? All i find is using blendmaps, which don't go beyond that amount.

>Next on the list is entity mouse picking (figuring out which entity is clicked on). I think the best method is rendering all entities silhouettes onto a hidden FBO where they only have one flat color which is created from an id associated with the entity. When a click happens, you take the pixel that is clicked on and calculate the id from its color.

Color picking works really well, provided your drives etc. don't misbehave and give you a slightly different shade than you asked for. I've seen this on old systems, the solution was basically to space the colors apart as much as possible and then look for the closest one if there's no exact match. The technique is useful for 2D stuff too, like parts of the interface that might need to be irregular etc.

I can post the fragment shader if you want, it's just one gigantic quad with two polygons. It uses a normal map plus a distortion map that then distorts the refraction, the space under water, which is first seperately rendered onto an FBO. There is also a reflection, sperately rendered as well, that is blended with the refraction depending on viewing angle. Not as complicated to implement as it sounds though.

>>28159

I've researched some more and got the impression that color picking is considered a "hack" and is needlessly dragging performance down, so i've gone with Ray intersection calculations now. Im too dumb and lazy to implement Ray-OBB intersection so right now the ray just intersects with invisible spheres around the entities. The big boys solution would apparently be using a physics engine like Bullet or Havoc for the ray tracing because it is assumed that you need one anyway for a AAA-game, but i don't think i'll need one so im going with the middle ground.

Dont think i can give you the exact names. The multiple rendering of the scene per frame is done by rendering to FBOs, Frame buffer objects, and what you're trying to achieve for the refraction FBO is a fresnel effect using a DUDV map, which looks like a normal map with a yellow taint, pic related.

need maps for my gayme.

been making an fps using Unity

>inb4 its shit.

i'm doing it for fun, just to play with some friends.

the thing is, maps are really time consuming to make, i'm the only dev i and i want to play it before i die of old age.

so i thought of picking some up from HL2, but it imports without the textures.

can't find any free map available.

doesanyone know where i can find some ?.

not particularly looking for something fancy, just decent looking, half life 2/CS:GO would be fine.

thanks.

I highly recommend using the Sauerbraten which is a 3D game engine with a superb multi-user map editor. It's possible to create a map in Sauerbraten and export the map to .obj format. Unity can import this data as a 3D model. Alternatively, you can try implementing your game based on the Sauerbraten engine.

Hi, not sure if this is worth an OP but couldn't find a fitting thread.

I work on a parkour game and currently I try to find a formular for running/jumping.

I came to the point where I have to decide how deep one can fall without taking damage. I chose to take the acceleration done in a vertical jump and interpret it as deceleration at landings.

The character can fall deeper than he can jump upwards. Because:

Right before jumping he knees with a 45 degrees angle of the thighs, which is a acceleration-path of 1/sqrt(2)'th of the leg lenght.

But at landing the character can do a roll which I interpret as 2/3th of the leg length for deceleration. This is longer than 1/sqrt(2)'th which means he is able to decelerate from ~11.1m/s to 0

This results in my case in ~7.2m depth for maximum depth.

What I want to know: Do you think this is somewhat realistic?

btw The character can run and sprint. In the picture it is f(x) and g(x). g(x) seems awfully long with the ~7.2 depth...

Sadly I need to do such stuff before working on the map or otherwise I dont know how high I can make walls etc.

If I find the help here useful I'll post the soccer stadion I have as a map wip atm. :3

Well didnt thought about hard/soft undergrounds. Will definitely put a note on this matter.

>>28127

there will be a healing factor. Otherwise standing on something and permanently dying by jumping down because you are hurt is kind of stupid.

BTW I did not chose which engine I want to use at the end. Someone knows a simple 3d engine where I can do a tech demo for finding "good feeling" mechanics and share it with you guys?

Oh and what do you think?

I'm not sure if I want two walking speeds or a variable speed, like it was done in splinter cell. Might even be pretty comfy to only scroll up and one doesnt have to press anything else to run. just scroll down to stop.

On the con side it becomes harder to find out how fast one has to run to pass a pit. Many people might end up always running max speed to make sure.

Ill do that with unity then for this one. I do work alone atm but I plan to get some people involved once there is a bit more than a raw idea.

The video is a nice one. Ill do both cases, two speeds and many speeds and will look how it feels. The video states that Mario's physics might be done likely, spending months with working on this matter alone. Thats what I might do.

After making the Rolling-Ball tutorial game I came to the conclusion I should begin right off with chosing the engine I want to use at the end. I try to be somewhat open source if I dont fail fatally, so Unity is not my first choice...

I try Godot. It seems to be improved much after the last big updates. This will take a while.

Godot is what you're looking for. Scenes are just trees of scenes in Godot. It's great, it's easy, and it does 3D games that don't look bad.

Blender has a game engine but it's so shitty that it's basically as bad as just using Windows + Unity.

Other tools:

LMMS, Musescore, Hydrogen Drum Machine, GIMP, Blender.

>Sublime, MilkyTracker, Audacity for sfx

What a terrible workflow. Audacity should be used to edit sounds, not create them. MilkyTracker is okay if you really must have accurate chiptune shit, but otherwise, it's a pain to use. Sublime is trash. If you're using it, you may as well be using Windows.

Pretend for a moment I know why you're frowning. Give me peace not. You have power, but do you have grace? Is it possible to improvise or will we die in the blink of an eye or two?

Can we pretend that airplanes don't fall, can we pretend to be nothing at all, can we hide and can we run or will we just get tossed about, like a rag or a bag of skin, in an emptiness that ignores us?

Back in 2011, Ben Aksoy made a neat game called Ace of Spades, but sold it out to Fagex. Since Fagex deleted the source code to the original game, why don't we fix the source code and go from there?

Barring that, why not just remake the game from scratch?

Mods have tons of disadvantages, especially questionable IP rights.

Voxel engines are absurdly easy to make.

Almost all of the work is the netcode.

These are all newest version, which is akin to CoD than classic Ace of Spades

The voxel engine is not hard to develop in itself. What's hard is making an engine that's also extensible through mods and is also coherent with multiplayer aspects. I could write a Minecraft clone in a tiny portion of the time to took to write the real one. As soon as you ask me to implement a mod API and also networking, it would take a lot longer and a lot more effort to make it happen.

What specifically is holding you back from making games? Lack of knowledge, lack of art, some mechanic that's giving you trouble, or something else that always gets in your way?

"No motivation" isn't an excuse, either you want to make games or you don't. If you don't have motivation, then there's something discouraging you.

Mine is graphics rendering. I'm an engine dev because that's the way I like it, but I have no idea how to use OpenGL and I don't know where to learn what I need to learn. I mean I can use it, but I have no idea how I'm supposed to use it, so I end up with shitty performance whenever I try to draw many things.

I spend too much time worrying about the syntax errors and variable typos I'm constantly making and it distracts me from visualizing what I'm trying to do.

>Whats holding you back?

I'm too stupid to learn blueprints. I'm a terrible self teacher but I can learn incredibly quick if I have a second person helping me out.

If I had a teacher I could learn it all in three weeks.

I have a list of everything I need to work on specifically.

What I need to work on the most is an understanding of baking normal maps, and texturing models.

I'm decent with modeling, but I'll only get better with time.

Many computer science programs at universities have game development options now, which seems to be a better choice than going to an art school or community college. You'll actually learn about computer architecture, algorithms, operating systems, instead of just the game dev fluff.

The game development university courses are usually "complete" in the sense that you get an adequate CS background that's paired with game development units and mathematics for game programming. However, programming as a field is a totally distinct subject to game development.

The game development you learn in art schools and community collage are real game development courses but they have minimal lessons about computer programming (if any). The reason for this is because game development is a field that can be done without computer programming. These people are expected to work with programmers who don't necessarily have any background in game development. Computer programmers trained in game development are useful in that they have the aptitude to do what everyone else is doing (they have that same training as everyone else) but this skill of "game development" is not strictly needed in order to design and write a game program.

Majoring in ceramics doesn't imply the only thing you learn is ceramics. You'd be doing a general fine arts course in conjunction with various units dedicated to ceramics.

This.

"Game Dev" does not need to be taught. If you go to an institute, it should be for some specific skill like programming or art.
