Summer Baseball Challenge 2018 - Part 2 (Game Graphics)

I'm almost finished my "basic" simulation for this game. In my first entry I was talking about how August really wasn't a good month for such a side project due to my corporate tax year end and other meetings I had to attend to. So this game is going to be pretty basic with simulation in mind and player input during the batting phase. I wish I could do more with the game, and I even had some animations made, but the amount of time I have left until the due date (Saturday September 15 2018 11:59 PM IDL) isn't going to allow me to do much, but I'll push out what I can as the requirements said it can be text, 2d, or 3d and be a simulation as well. I wouldn't mind making a full 3D baseball game but that would take months!

I have three screen shots to show below but first here is the bird alien creation I made that evening when I posted:

I've modeled, rigged, and textured all the below assets to at least give the game more a visual appeal. :) 

The game will consist of two teams with 9 players per team and use random events to simulate possible outcomes. The player will be able to see their loaded bases, and decide the direction they want to hit to allow runners to make bases more easily. On the computer batting phase, the turn will be simulated right away. I was going to add in real time outfield play but I don't have the time at this point. :( The first one to hit 21 points will win once both team have played an equal number of hands.

My next blog post will be the final game to complete my entry. :) 

Thanks for reading!

This was my fear that it sounded quite involved, plus not being from the US I had no knowledge (or interest, if I'm honest!) in baseball.

Well done it all looks like it is coming together! :)

Thanks! This is why I'm only sticking to the simulation part as I had a week to work on the game itself. I have over 150+ simulation event variations right now, and I'm hard coding them in. Once this is done I just need to run a few tests and I'm done. I grew up as a kid playing and going to baseball games, but into my teens to adult years I have since disconnected so updating myself on the older rule set was a bit of a challenge, and for all I know I might have some things wrong. :D 

I should be done today! :)
