Great success! My runtime object streamer works :) Now I'm gonna change the terrain generation so it generates in Editing mode (when the game is not running), so I can place buildings etc. without having to code a seperate in-game level editor, and have my world persists without having to save it to a file.

i used to love that little red truck, best of all the vehicles. Don't know why. I thought it was cute.

Cherno 05 March 2015 00:01

Well, it's not that little, it drives slow as hell and has a horrible turning radius... But the engine sound is excellent! :D

Mrs Beanbag 05 March 2015 00:29

it will always be little to me, forever in my heart

This project actually poked my brain into remembering a little project called Outerra:

Imagine having to solve the problems listed in this thread with terrabytes of Earth's geography data :)

I just read that elite: dangerous universe is so big - if you visit each world for 2min and never repeat it would take 1.5M years to explore everywhere.

Must be procedurally generated.

Yes and no; its based on real Milky Way data for planets, stars and positioning but most of what is in that vast amount of space is procedurally generated.

"Poor man" my ass, there's a ginormous bag of SWAG sitting right next to you! THE AUDACITY!

This is the same (kinda) scene from the original game:

This.... is.... Amazing!!!!

Cherno 06 March 2015 03:41

Thanks. My little quest system is working good so far, by the way. Now I have to write the GUI for the inventory system, pretty easy as the inventory itself is already in place.

Cherno 10 March 2015 03:08

Inching forward to the first proper demo release...

Current task: Implementing some weapons. Planned so far is the pistol, assault rifle (M16A2), missile launcher (AT-4, but possibly guided), a sniper rifle and maybe hand grenades.

Also implemented is the round minimap with variable range. The compass bar has become somewhat superfluous so maybe I will get rid of it, make it optional, or tie it to a special item. Having one icon on teh compass bar for every building and vehicle is too much clutter anyway, and objects are too spread out and placed to randomly to use "points of interest" as in Fallout 3/NV and Skyrim.

Also², I am currently working on a pixelization script that renders the game at 256x256 or similar to give that really old-school feeling of playing the Amiga with a crappy CRT monitor :D

Edit: Enemy (red) uniform is also kind of implemented, but there is no item for it yet.

BobRedthorp 10 March 2015 08:28

Really looking forward to trying it out, is there an option to invert the mouse (Y axis)?

Im salivating waiting to play a newer build.

Also i was going to ask about the music. Can you make a way to supply a mp3 for the title tune (the original tune is an Activision pro format) so i think its easier to supply it as a mp3 rather than support some weird esoteric player.

I also wouldn't bundle it with the tune as Activision would be the type to sue you.

Cherno 10 March 2015 13:02

Thanks guys for your comments. It means much to me :bowdown

I will include this option in the next build (if I don't forget it ;))

MP3s are supported by the Unity Engine. It's been a long time since I last worked on game sound effects, though.

Cherno 12 March 2015 00:36

Hmm... I have a problem :D

The player/soldier model needs to be replaced because it is not possible to animate it satisfactory (not enough vertices in the shoulder area for deforming), and those wafer-thing arms look really bad. On the otehr hand, the model is iconic and I really like the blocky look. So now I'm pondering creating a new one outright that won't have any similarity with the original one, and with a higher poly count, or trying to somehow make animations and mesh deformations work with the old style... Which would probably lead to lots of mesh intersecting/overlapping, weird deformations, and overall shoddy appreance.

Cherno 17 March 2015 02:50

Spent the last couple of days in a little test chamber of sorts with nothing but a character, a target and some weapons, trying to figure out how to script the shooting animations. I finally got it to work after some quite frustrating moments (Unity crashing randomly during runtime ad taking my two prefab weapons with it which I spent hours setting up!) Oh well. At least that chapter is pretty much behind me... I hope :D

Edit: New character model is also done, It looks very close to the old one but has arms that actually have some volume to them ;) I opted for the cheap cop out of just making the arms seperate meshes not connected to the shoulders so there is no deformation problem, but it can looks pretty jagged at certain angles. Oh well, thats 1991 graphics for ya.

Cherno 20 March 2015 00:24

Back with more good news: The results from the research lab (as outlines above) have been successfully integrated into the "real" environment. Now I have a pistol, assault rifle, sniper rifle, and a missile launcher with guided missiles. The sniper rifle has a scope, of course ;) Who knows, maybe this weekend I will mange to complete teh current build and upload it. Stay tuned ;)

The green box is just a debug thingy representing the camera frustrum (I made his shot from the scene window, not from the game window). Fun fact: first, I wanted to make the screenshot inside the church to show the pulpit and stained glass window in teh background, but after a few salvoes of the assault rifle the church blew up :D

Suffice to say, the priest was not amused! :sad

There was even a message "You destroyed a church! (- 200 points)".
