Official Game-Guru News:There is a new survey available which offers users the chance of getting a free DLC pack as incentive for completing it so give them your thoughts! https://www.thegamecreators.com/post/gameguru-users-enter-our-survey-to-win-a-dlc
There were also some AI improvements made to the most recent public preview. Apparently some input was run by smallg (one of the resident scripting experts) who cleaned it up.
They updated the PBR materials to include mega-pack 3:
And lastly there was ALSO an update to EAI's weaponry:https://www.thegamecreators.com/post/gameguru-mega-pack-3-dlc-updated-2
What's Good in the Store:
Tarkus's music. I usually like his stuff but this isn't my speed. That said it would work well for many games seeking some well priced work that can fit a wide range of modern/post modern genre games: https://www.tgcstore.net/pack/11055
Pasquill's PBR construction vehicles were completed and are now available at a very reasonable price in a pack! https://www.tgcstore.net/pack/11054
Free Stuffhttps://forum.game-guru.com/thread/220103 - This beautiful gateway by Lafette II
https://forum.game-guru.com/thread/220124 - This Bizarre Spongebob/Domo-kun esque character for cartoon style games. Free, follows waypoints, has Gtox's quality on it. Nice stuff. Characters are always a fairly expensive proposition so it's particularly noteworthy when one is available for free.
Third party tools and TutorialsThere's this interesting texturing tutorial (care of Bugsy): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a8d6p-E4KSE
Random Acts of CreativityAmenmoses has been working on physics and particles a lot this past week. He put together a nice demo reel of his physics-based leaves here: https://vimeo.com/292789619
There's this campfire with smoke physics and fire particles: https://vimeo.com/293305766
And he even made an aggregate thread for all of his scripting work (finally!) here: https://forum.game-guru.com/thread/220055
What a busy man!
Duchenkuke detailed his picture below (I promised not to name names but he made a video so it kind of betrays him a bit! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WWsEVUgcYIw&feature=youtu.be
He's also updated his web presence, check out his new site here:
In My Own Works:
I created a screenshot for an impromptu private contest for other GG Forumites.
Came in dead last. Was based on 'forests'. I gambled on going Alien Fungal and lost big!
That said, it is what it is. Next time, I guess and no, I will not tell you where this contest was as it was fairly secret/private. I can't post all of the pictures at this time as it will make this page unreasonably long to load for some. So here's mine (dead last), the runner up, and the winner!
Congrats to the winner :)
That said I also got about 4500 words done thanks to said contest on how to make a forest, though admittedly I wrote it post-picture as a sort of 'lessons learned by my failure'. Still, the overall nature of it came out well. I plan on doing a city and desert/Tundra style one as well.
See you next week!
