Progressing slowwly

Posted by alfith, 18 November 2015 · 0 views

I finally started the layers system. For now, I only have "objects" layers.
In the following images, one layer is set to add trees, a second one to add grass and a third to add two types of rocks.

The layers here only add objects on the ground. It is possible to use them to populate a "box" with floating objects (for an asteroids field for exam...

I uploaded the 3 videos I currently have of the game development.
The first one is the old terrain + paths test:
- infinite terrain
- terrain "patch" system to create craters
- random tree placement (with the same system used to place craters)
- paths for the red triangles

The second one is the menu wit...

3D model

Posted by alfith, 10 March 2015 · 0 views

I did a lot of work in the game these days. Now, I can export meshes from Blender, read description files for fonts, materials, objects, levels and render the level. Everything still needs a lot of work but the results are encouraging and I can check visually what I was working on all this time.
Some screenshots of what I have (the jpg is killing the...

Last one

Yesterday, I did the AT-AT. It was not very difficult: small amount of parts, only a few are really small, assembly is not acrobatic. The result is still convincing I think.

For a bit of explanation on what you are looking at, please see my comment in http://www.gamedev.net/blog/635/entry-2260795-light-metal-universe/

Now, it is time to work on t...

Light Metal Universe

Posted by alfith, 02 February 2015 · 0 views

Still no game screenshot for today but I finished two metal models:

I had to use tweezers (some parts are 1-2mm wide) and various sizes of screwdrivers (to shape the cylinders).
Two more to go (a Tie Advanced and an AT-AT) !

Rover and menu

The papercraft Moon rover is finished

Concerning my game, I do not have a lot of things to show but I have a working menu

A lot of things are done but they are behind the scene. It is not visible here but in the screenshot, you have:
- SDL2 window,
- OpenGL4 context and view
- "game" loop
- menu data from a configuration file
- working keyboard...

In progress

The system to get objects moving along a path is done. The path interpolation can be linear between the control points or following a b-spline. The orientation can be fixed or also following the path. One path can be used by many objects each having a position offset or a different speed or a different start time. At each control point, a pause can be spe...

The new project

Posted by alfith, 25 September 2014 · 169 views

It is time to briefly present my new project: Shoot (a codename until I can think of something better). It will be a shoot'em up with the player controlling a spaceship.
Here is the spaceship made in blender:

The red parts are the weapons.
And a quick mock-up, in Blender too, using some old models to get an idea of the style and the view:

I wou...

The return of papercraft

I uploaded photos of papercraft models I did during these past months in a new gallery:

I did not create the models, I "only" built them with a lot of paper, glue and time...

I am currently doing a rover from the movie "Moon" (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moon_%28film%29 ) from here: http://www.paperaviation.de/Lunar_Rover/lunar_rover.html


Something unexpected

Posted by alfith, 01 September 2014 · 330 views

After years spent doing nothing with it, my game is available. I recently worked again on this project to add musics, more sounds, fix a few things in the code and in the level and get a game that can be played.
It is available for download here: https://www.mediafire.com/folder/8hlrizqd9u2rl/DDream as 4 files:

Python and binary files

Posted by alfith, 08 March 2012 · 1,349 views

That was a long silence. I would like to say I worked a lot on the game but I can't. The only thing I coded is the subject of this entry: a python script to "patch" binary files. I am posting it here as it could be useful to someone.
I tested it with Python 2.6 and 3.2. If you want to use the "crc" command, the...

Alien test

A new video

Posted by alfith, 17 November 2011 · 282 views

It is incredible: I did code for my game ! I added two new "events": one to move an object and one to display text. They are both demonstrated in a new video I put on youtube here:
What is shown:
- a few monsters cleanup
- some "bonus" pickup
- text displayed when entering an invisible area
- teleportation...

No progress in progress

I recently discovered a "new" time consuming activity: drawing with a tablet. A friend offered me a Wacom Bamboo and I spend a lot of time using it.
You can see some results in my new album. I still have a lot to learn. Most of the drawings are done in MyPaint and...

Yes, that was not a joke, I am working on my game again. Here is the first new creature exported from blender 2.58 with an updated script, placed using the level editor and rendered in the game.

Porting the script was easy. The editor and the game only needed to be compiled...

After about 10 years of work, my old computer is being replaced by a new one pictured above.
The development of my game will resume when everything is configured in the new system and after the copy of all my personal files.
For those interested, the main parts are:
