Brainstorming online soccer ball control


Foreword: I'm developing an online soccer MOBA where upwards of ten players will be jockeying for a soccer ball. This journal is a brain dump to help me get a handle on the mechanics of managing a soccer ball in an online soccer game using Unity3D and the Photon network engine. I apologiz...

Generating BoxColliders for PicaVoxel-imported objects in Unity3D

Recently I downloaded MagicaVoxel which lets you create and modify blocky objects, and bought PicaVoxel which lets you import them into Unity3D projects. The purpose was twofold: to help my friend Highsight develop his first game, and to have access to powerful tools in case I ever wanted to make a voxel art game. Highsight claimed difficulties with...

Gamieon: Ten years, One Programmer

Though I've dabbled in game development since the late 1980's, it wasn't until October 26, 2004 that I incorporated Gamieon for fun, adventure, and maybe even a little profit.

How I synchronized a simple rigidbody across network players with UE4

The Issue

I'm developing an online soccer game for UE4 which you can get from http://github.com/Gamieon/UBattleSoccerPrototype for now.

When in possession, the ball is always in front of the posse...

My first Unreal Editor Soccer AI Simulation

Though I'm still new to the Unreal Editor and behavior trees, I wanted to create a primitive soccer simulation for a game I'm prototyping. You can get the code in its current form at:


Getting Started

The first part of my journey was learning how "Blueprints" work in the Unreal Editor. I consider...

My First Excursion Into the Unreal Editor

While in-between major projects that use the Unity game engine, I decided to give the Unreal Editor a spin to see what all the hype was about. For those of you who just want to see the cool stuff first, here's a video of my first playable Gauntlet-like dungeon crawl prototype finished in about twenty five hours of work.


Unity Windows Phone 8 In-App Purchase Integration

The focus of this journal entry is on how I integrated In-App purchase capabilities into my Unity game. I'm not going to discuss strategies for earning money from players, or how I used the IAP assets once they were integrated.

Unity Windows Phone 8 Ad Integration

In one effort to monetize Hamster Chase, I wanted to have ads appear in it. It took me a while to decide where to put the ads; the articles at https://inneractive.jira.com/wiki/display/DevWiki/Ad+Placement+Strategy and http://streetfightmag.com/2012/12/14/can-mobile-advertising-be-made-less-annoying/ were helpful with my decision making.
