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.

working in 3D alone is probably biting off more than a single developer can chew. otherwise, probably unity just for the large community and support you can get with it.

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.

A anthro VN.

I'm looking on forming a team to get this project of mine off the ground. The brief outline is done. The detailed outlines are not. We've already got a code person. Art will be acquired later. If you can write, have free time and are interested. We could use the help. The more the merrier.

Thank you.

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.

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.

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'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.

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.

"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.

So.. I saw RPG Maker Ace VX is on a 90% discount, only 6 €, and I'm seriously thinking about buying it to make some easy RPG, but then I noticed RPG Maker MV and I was thinking about waiting until it had a discount of that level.

I have no experience nor knowledge about programming, also don't know how Gamemaker will work in the end, yet I saw many people playing stupid RPG Maker games and thought that maybe... maybe... I could get some easy bucks if I work hard in a good RPG game using the engine and then after getting some experience and have some assets jump into Gamemaker and make a beat'em up spin off.

So... what is your recomendation besides stop being a faggot and actually learn how to program a game?

Well, I just want to make a 2d horror/thriller RPG with gun shots instead of magic. The thing is that I saw the two and MV looks much better, specially having an integrated side scroll battle. The easy buck part is just me trying to look more ambitious than I am to be honest, I just want to make a game about monsters in the forest and rednecks and the sheriff searching for lost people, at least to prepare some assets to do a beat'em up spin off where you play as one of the monsters.

So... should I wait for a 90% discount for RPG Maker MV? or will it never come?

I got RPG maker vx on sale with the same plan in mind.

And it is possible to make a game like that.

But a lot of things in Ib and blank dream ect. are done with extra tools that allow you to better customize the game menus, and text windows. These tools also looked a lot more complicated than the standard interface.

Anyway the things called the Luna Engine.

MV might allow you to customize all that stuff, with a friendlier UI, but I'm not sure if it does.

I figured it was better for me in the long run to get GMS off that humble bundle, and take one more stab at coding.

Sounds like a fun game. Good luck.

>So... should I wait for a 90% discount for RPG Maker MV? or will it never come?

VX Ace is on sale because of how old it is. So, although MV will probably get a 90% discount, it won't be for at least 2-3 more years. It wouldn't make sense to wait that long.

He should pirate it and then buy it if he ever releases his game for money, which we all know is extremely unlikely.

Does RPG Maker Games still start abysmally slow if your game is too big?

I never had a blog before, but some friends have been suggesting me to make one for my game, any of you folks have one?

I was thinking of something to be updated weekly like DF bay12 website

Buy a tiny budget VPS for like $10 a year. Good experience seeing up a LAMP stack. It takes like 2 hours tops and after that you can get a job doing it too.

Find cheap hosting here. http://www.webhostingtalk.com/forumdisplay.php?f=104

Then register a domain and point to it. Set up whatever site backend you want. You will have a really useful web server you can do anything with, including running a budget VPN.

Think it'd be smarter to release a demo of the game, then vlog about progress towards the release version

Guys, I have these two friends and they told me they want to make a puzzle game. Neither of them have any programming experience. Having failed my first year of CS I know what a challenge programming can be.

I set the bar low and told them to learn python and found suitable libraries. They haven't bothered to learn any python nor read the documentation I provided. I told them to hold off UI design until they understand the libraries and their capabilities but they have spent all their time (2 months) drawing pictures.

Now they have declared they are moving to the Unity engine because one of them watched a YT video where the guy made a game using no code. I told them they still need to learn programming but now it will be C++ which is more difficult. They said that's fine, like they completely ignored the words coming out of my mouth.

The moment one of them said "game engine" I immediately quit in my head.

I feel fairly confident they are going to fail hard. I have decided to just let them do it if they aren't going to listen to me anyway.

What do you think their chances are? Can a couple of idiots with zero experience make a game using Unity?

I made one or two decent games in flash with no programing experience whatsoever.

I even managed to make a dynamic inventory system using just move frame actions and change x/y positions.

It was a fucking headache to figure out, but it was satisfying as fuck to pull off.

hope those guys manage to surprise you. You never know.

I don't like to consider myself an all knowing being, but truth be told I am rarely surprised by anything. If they manage to surprise me, I might die from shock.

On a separate note, well done on the flash work. I knew a couple of guys from my entry level IT course who went on to get degrees in "Flash design" instead of computer science. Seeing the state of flash today, I bet they have regrets.
