Dimins V2018.1

I started making a game this month as a "One Man Army". I'm not really following any kind of dev process, just working what I feel like when I feel like and using only Unity, Blender and Gimp.

First I got some references for the game I want to make, I want it to be a monster collection game on pc, android and switch. Only multiplayer will be pvp. The only motivation I have is I want a game that I like to play on mobile and pc with my partner and daughter. We decided to call it Dimensional Minions (Dimins), at least as a working title.

Did some basic modular and tiled environment assets, turns out my modelling and unwrapping is okay but my painting is horrendous.

I followed that up with a basic movement and profile system in Unity, at this point it only saved the position of the player but all other data was added as needed and it worked out of the box. The camera feels weird, I'll probably have to spend a lot of time on it.

Now something a bit more meaty, I made some Ability and Minion databases to describe what ability and minions are and to give them some stats and behaviour, then a secret place where combat takes place with the ability to run, swap minion, attack and capture enemy minion. I also added a basic custom animation\tween helper and a simple fluent interface for scripting abilities and their animations to spawn particles etc as well.

I made a proper minion, his name is Cubgel, and gave minions some world behaviour to roam about. My daughter wanted a mummy and daddy one with lots of babies, that's why they are different scales.

Then I made another tree, cementing the fact that my art really sucks:

After that debacle I worked on dialogue, got basic stuff in the dialogue can interface with the current story data found in the players profile to determine what to say or not to say.

Following that I got a friend to make some pixel art based on my scribblings to give some good references to make models from, for now most of them are cubes with the pixel art on them.

I then made some spawners to spawn all the minions in the world and built a small area to play in. I also added a simple walk in cylinder to heal all your minions up otherwise the game just gets impossibly hard. I guess the current goal is to kill the highest level minion spawns. I'll have to add a story at some point.

I added a lot of little tweaks like nameplates for minions, animation on the cylinder and some other basic 'polish' but at the moment I am just going to upload the build and call it a night. There are probably so many bugs but it's 1 am and it's time for sleep!

Give it a play and give me some feedback on my horrid camera, ui and art. Literally any feedback will be appreciated.

Oh another thing, I relatively recently started\released an open source game called STD(Simple Tower Defense) and if you wanna check that out it's here, it's 64 bit only and needs the VS 2017 redist installed, it also suffers from bad art.

PS. Is this too much media?

      I'm trying to add some details like grass, rocks, trees, etc. to my little procedurally-generated planet. The meshes for the terrain are created from a spherified cube which is split in chunks (chunked LOD).
      To do this I've wrote a geometry shader that takes a mesh as input and uses its vertex positions as locations where the patches of grass will be placed (as textured quads).
      For an infinite flat world (not spherical) I'd use the terrain mesh as input to the geometry shader, but I've found that this won't work well on a sphere, since the vertex density is not homogeneous across the surface.
      So the main question would be: How to create a point cloud for each terrain chunk whose points were equally distributed across the chunk?
      Note: I've seen some examples where these points are calculated from intersecting a massive rain of totally random perpendicular rays from above... but I found this solution overkill, to say the least.
      Another related question would be: Is there something better/faster than the geometry shader approach, maybe using compute shaders and instancing?

      Hello all,
       
      I would like to start off with thanking you all for this community. Without fora like these to assist people the already hard journey to making an own game would be exponentially more difficult. Next I would like to apologize for the long post, in advance...
      I am contemplating making a game. There, now that's out of the way, maybe some further details might be handy.
      I am not some youngster (no offence) with dreams of breaking into the industry, I am 38, have a full-time job, a wife, kid and dog so I think I am not even considered indie? However I recently found myself with additional time on my hands and decided I would try my hand at making a game.Why? Well mostly because I would like to contribute something, also because I think I have a project worth making (and of course some extra income wouldn't hurt either to be honest). The first thing I realized was, I have absolutely no relevant skill or experience. Hmm; ok, never mind, we can overcome that, right?
      I have spent a few months "researching",meaning looking at YouTube channels, reading articles and fora. Needless to say, I am more confused now than when I started. I also bought some courses (Blender, Unity, C#) and set out to make my ideas more concrete.
      I quickly discovered, I am definitely not an artist... So I decided, though I do plan to continue learning the art side eventually, I would focus on the design and development phase first. The idea being, if it takes me a year or more solely learning stuff and taking courses without actually working on my game, I would become demoralized and the risk of quitting would increase.
      So I thought I would:
      1: Keep following the courses Unity and C# while starting on the actual game development as the courses and my knowledge progress.
      2: Acquire some artwork to help me get a connection with the game and main character, and have something to helm keep me motivated. (I already did some contacting and realized this will not be cheap...). Also try to have the main character model so I can use it to start testing the initial character and game mechanics. For this I have my first concrete question. I already learned that outsourcing this will easily run up in the high hundreds or thousands of dollars... (lowest offer so far being 220 USD) I am therefore playing with the idea of purchasing https://assetstore.unity.com/packages/3d/animations/medieval-animations-mega-pack-12141 with the intention of then have an artist alter and/or add to the animations (it is for a Roman character so some shield animations are not going to work the same way.). This way I could start  with the basic character mechanics. Is this a good idea, waste of money,...? Any suggestions? I then have a related but separate question. Is it a good idea to buy Playmaker (or some other similar software I haven't yet heard of like RPGAIO), and using this for initial build, then changing/adding code as the need arises?
      3.Get a playable initial level ready as a rough demo and then starting to look for artist for level design and character/prop creation.
      ...
       
      I would really appreciate some input from more experienced people, and especially answers to my questions. Of course any advice is extremely welcome.
