Unity Daily Update #4 - Crystal updates

Today, I've fixed some bugs with the crystal throwing algorithm.

Basically, crystals will be used by the player to get to those alternative paths I've mentioned in my BPS tree entry.

There'll be at least 3 type of crystals : Fire, Water and Life.

Each will be thrown to eliminate obstacles at the entry point of each alternatives paths.

I've also planned them to be persistent throughout runs. This means that the amount of crystals are linked to a save file rather than a run.

So if the player didn't used their crystal during the run, then they'll have the opportunity to use them in another one.

As you can see, each type of crystal has a particular particle effect attached to them.

I've tried to simulate how each type of elements would react. So the fire crystal particles behaves like flames, life one like fireflies and water one like drops of water.

I still have to give them a distinctive shape... For now, I've used the default particle sprite provided with Unity.

Also, after a crystal hit something, it'll generate other type of particles. These particle will move accordingly to the impact force.

So, to recap, I've been working on particles for the past days... Kinda slow, but I think it's worth it...

      Unity is a cross-platform game engine developed by Unity Technologies, first announced and released in June 2005 at Apple Inc.'s Worldwide Developers Conference as an OS X-exclusive game engine. As of 2018, the engine has been extended to support 27 platforms.
      I have started a video tutorial on A Complete Game Development course using Unity3d on YouTube. It is completely a beginner to advance course so any on can visit and learn to code and design game from beginning.
      Course will be updated daily.

      I'm looking for a open source PBR rendering engine that I can use.  Basic requirements are Windows (C/C++) and free to use type license.

      The first two hits I get on Google are:

      Filament
      https://github.com/google/filament/

      LuxCoreRender
      https://luxcorerender.org/

      Does anybody have any experience using any of these, or do you recommend something else that's better?
      Thanks.
      Pluses: Active development, easy to compile, zero dependencies.

      What is the game like
      I'm working on a game where the main mechanic is the player creates their own spells. They create spell using a sort of visual programming language
      Here is a diagram showing how the spell system would work

      The top spell would shoot fire out of the casters hand
      The second spell would shoot a projectile in a straight line until it hit something with no other effects
      The third spell would shoot a projectile and when it hits, explodes in a fireball
      Armed with only their knowledge of magic the player must navigate through caves and dungeons looking for artifacts and spells to allow them to become a master of the magic arts.
      What I have so far
      I prototype of the spell creation system. The user can draw symbols using an oculus touch controller in the air. The computer recognizes the symbol and the user can then move the symbols around to construct spells.
      List of spells I have working at the moment
      Fire - does damage, burns wood, and can light torches Wind - pushes objects and puts out torches Levitate - causes the target to become weightless, when used with wind you can push even heavy objects Light - a bright light used to light up dark areas What I need
      It would be great to have an artist to work with. I am going ahead doing the artwork on my own but having somebody who could take that too let me focus on the other aspects would be of great help
      I would also like if somebody would take on the role of designing levels. I think this game will rely on having many different interesting encounters to force them to come up with clever solutions to problems using their magic. It would be helpful to have somebody to collaborate with for ideas in the category and to focus on trying different levels out to help me focus on the programming.

      Greetings,
      I have a specific need to launch a game from an existing app.  Has anyone come across a game engine that can be built in this way?  Any help would be appreciated.
      Thank you!
