This week's update was pre-staged because of some real life work obligations. Apologies for any content which was missed in the lag time between staging and deployment here.

Official Game Guru News

https://steamcommunity.com/app/266310/discussions/0/1730963192547852809/ - Per synchromesh it appears the long standing 'disappearing model' issue may be resolved.  Time will tell!

Also this came out this last week: https://www.thegamecreators.com/post/gameguru-melee-weapons-pack-updated-2
So apparently more updates to the already really decent melee weapons pack were done. They added 6 more melee weapons.  Pretty impressive stuff for those who already own it!

Lastly all of the incremental AI updates are here: https://forum.game-guru.com/thread/220075?page=2#msg2606583

We also have our list of winners from the Survey (all of these people got free DLC!):
  • Archor
  • Simon Cleaton
  • Rogy 
Very cool, congrats all!

What's Good in the Store

The same stuff as last week, sadly.

Free Stuff

Nothing new for free as of this writing.


Third Party Tools and Tutorials


There's some pretty good info in this thread about how to use styleguru, which is a fantastic third party program that can help you customize your Game-Guru menus.

Random Acts of Creativity

Particle Test by Kevan Hampton - https://youtu.be/08zG7FczACM

Extraction Point X11 https://forum.game-guru.com/thread/220128
Now the above should really get your attention.  Someone put a lot of hard work and care into this but used mostly stock game assets.  They have a very good cutscene and HUD, as well as a neatly modified menu.  Sets a good standard Game-Guru game-making attempts.

Someone made a kindle e-book with Game-Guru graphics... speaking as someone who's made a kindle book before it's no picnic to arrange those things.  I am fairly impressed!

In My Own Works:


Recently this week started work on the 'how to make a desert' walkthrough.  It's coming along well though is tricker than I first thought.  Here's a screenshot:

This is far from final and sadly the book will only include B&W stills, but regardless, the basic shape is there. There's more grasses, background materials and the like to add but atmospherically speaking it's what I wanted.
I also have this for the Semi-Arid type of desert, but it needs even more work:

Piece by piece this book is coming along.  Just two more desert types to do for the book and take all the necessary screenshots, do final cleanup, etc.

I also need to rework my 'how to make a city' section as well, which falls into a similar situation.
