Unreal Fifth Entry - November 10, 2018

Mikael Henriksson


Hello all!

This is the fifth entry of my development blog for my project 'Tracked Mind'.

Since last post I've been taking care of the system that controls how the Player character moves and how stamina effects movement, and of course some bugs that appeared while I implemented it :). The new version of the movement system will be able to keep a better track of the Player's stamina and different movement speed depending on the Player's stance etc. I am also creating the first draft of a couple of new maps.

I'm uploading a few new screenshots of the game, one of them shows one of the new maps, let me know what you think! 


Some changes this month:

- The movement system has been updated.

- New maps (first draft of them).

Bug fixes

- Fixed a bug that would prevent reloading of the shotgun.

- Fixed a bug that caused the Player to be able to sprint even when stamina was at 0.


Thank you once again for reading!

Thanks! I've been working on this myself so far, I'm talking to a writer to help out with the story, but other than that I've been doing this as a hobby project in my spare time :)

      I have spent many hours dedicated to advanced blending, shading, modeling and texture art for a game concept that will requires stages.  Think of this in the context of the sims, but far more advanced.  I need someone with a server that can host the Unreal server.  The plant life, very advanced.  The terrain textures very advanced and using blending, GIS, varying liquid textures I am building the foundation for a economic sim first.  The idea initially will be to build businesses in cities and have a character you can customize with basic animations.  Later down the road once world economies are in motion, we will add simulations, politics, governments, and finally combat simulations.  The idea is you can assume any role you would in life, build a life in modern civilization, all connected world wide.  Initially it's very basic, businesses and economies with a customizable male or female character, house or business building.
      My company has secured a contract that generates about 120,000.00 USD a year, and those willing to vest in this project will ultimately be paid.  Where is the money?  Well, the idea is to take subscriptions initially but then, money is deposited by players to build their virtual life, career, and each nation will have a government that builds on taxation.  I will add stock markets, housing markets, medical markets, technology markets and resource markets.  The beauty is, since players invest real cash, they can make real cash thru inventions, politics, banking, travel, whatever they set up in the virtual world.  Simply working a job for another players business that pays.  As the economy grows and more players are added, then they supply cash to begin their lives in our virtual world and the ones that make money can simply withdraw into their real world bank accounts.  We simply make our money off fees in transactions that occur in our virtual world.
      So to be clear, this is a beginning try out with stages of development.  I will be doing a early release and as players are added, money is invested, this will fund further development.  
      Stage 1:
      Government, Business and World Setup.  I have completed all texture art necessary to generate a complete earth in very vivid detail.  I am making preset buildings.  But I require assistance in the development of a in game GIS terrain generator.  I will also need help finding a database of cities and their building and maps so we can procedurally generate the cities.  I have iClone and could use another person to help me develop the basic animations for people.  I would like to make a building designer in game, setup zoned properties, making clothing, furniture, and get the economic part of the game setup.
      I am seeking someone with a server that can run 24/7, a Unreal game server.  I am seeking one or two artists that can help speed up the basic modeling process for many models.  I personally will deal with the terrain, city and various programming aspects.  I already have done all the architectural textures, detail and base, PBR.  I am doing models, like furniture, fountains, but being able to shift this work to several artists that are consistent would be of real help so I can focus on the programming aspect of this first stage.  I also have a merchant processor so I can run the credit cards and accounts thru them.  If you are willing to vest in this one project, one piece at a time, then I can guarantee once you are proven and consistent, there will be pay.  There are several other stages to building this advanced simulation but this first stage is the simplest and will at least begin a very lucrative money income for the company.
      A additional programmer would be of real help that is familiar with C++, Unreal, Blueprints, Materials, GitHub is hard working consistent, and wants to get their foot in the door in game development.
      Seeking two artists, 2D knowledgeable in Adobe 
      Seeking two artists 3D knowledgeable in Substance, Adobe, Blender, iClone is a bonus
      Seeking one individual with a 24/7 server for Beta Testing at no cost.
      Tools and accounts are setup and paid for by me.

      here is my entry for the Dungeon Crawler Challenge. I will not have much time in the coming weeks so I have published what I could do right now with the time I had. Only had time to make one level.
      I will write the Post-Mortem in the next few days.
      The download file is a .zip, and there is no installer so you need to find the .exe in Binaries/Win64.
      Controls are WSAD keys to move around, left mouse button to attack, mouse to move camera around, H key to drink health potions, M key to invoke in game menu.
      To open chests you just touch the front of the chest with the player, and walk over it when opened to pickup the loot.
      Let me know how it runs because the build does not have resolution mode change options and I made a scalable build, which is only scalable on my system.

      Everyone is afraid to create the first topic in a forum, so I thought I would take care of that.
      I want to thank @Brain for taking the initiative to use's Groups feature to create the Unreal Engine Users group. We've had Groups for a while (For Beginners, GameDev Challenges), and a few months ago started to allow GDNet+ members to create and manage their own groups. @Brain is the first member to make the leap!
      I look forward to seeing this group grow into a great resource for developers using Unreal Engine!

      Hello everybody! I'm developing my first big game and almost done with finishing all the mechanics, the only few things that left is some balancing and some enemies behavior corrections. But scince I'm developing it on my own and it's 3rd person shooter the game needs a lot of content such as animation characters environment meshes and so on. And there is a problem: I don't know what to do next. So let me explain situation a little bit better. I was doing very simple games for 3 years when I started game developing and a year ago I decided to create a really big and serios project. So for these year I've managed to create all mechanics balance them and now I got a game that can be played and people (who tested it) enjoy it. The only thing is left is to bring "beaty" to the project. I can model all static meshes for the levels, create some FX, textures and I've even managed to create all enemy characters. So I'm more a programmer than an artist and I simply don't know how to create all other stuff such as animations, player characters and so on. It's realy bad, because for now I can't even show my work to the people, because it's very ugly and poor. And I don't have money to pay artists. So please can you give some advices on what to do in this situation.

      Hello there,
      I've been developing a game for over a year now called TIRELESS, and here I shall explain what its all about!
      TIRELESS is a Challenging 3D Platformer video game which focuses solely on skill based gameplay. Collecting coins, running and jumping is what you'll be doing most of the time. The game however takes a unique approach to a standard 3D Platformer format by adding a game mechanic called the Adrenaline Mode, greatly increasing the boost in both speed and jump height turning the game into a even more challenging and visually stunning spectacle.

      You like rage games? TIRELESS has got you covered. The game will try it's best to make you fail. It is punishing and unforgiving, which is why it makes for a good rage game. Many have tried, and many have failed. But don't be discouraged, the more you practice, the better you get and are simply bound to get good results. The game requires skill, and is not based on chance. But you'll surely find yourself screaming multiple times in your playthrough.

      Consisting of variety of different levels, each built in ways to push the boundaries and uncover ones true core skills, You'll be taken on a long and deadly road to victory.

      The game is of high difficulty and requires lots of skill to play. For a beginner, it can take up to an hour to complete just one single level, while a good player can pass it in under 3 minutes. There is even an in-game guide dedicated to a complete beginner in TIRELESS to help you get started and understand the very basics of the game.

      Unlike most Platformers, TIRELESS removes any sort of combat or enemies, thus making the game's primary focus platforming. But platforming needs to be done right. TIRELESS takes platforming to the next level, offering a wide variety of levels and challenges for the player to discover.

      The game was designed to be played with a mouse and keyboard, but there is a full gamepad support for anyone who prefers a joystick.
      In every single level of the game there are slow motion events which are triggered automatically and really make for very cinematic and even more stunning moments in the game.
      There is a unique power up that plays a huge role in the game called the Adrenaline Box, 
      collecting it triggers the Bright, Fast, and Flashy Adrenaline Mode, giving you an insane boost of speed and increased jump height turning the game into a visually stunning spectacle.
      This mode is used throughout all levels of the game, and it is advised to take time and learn how to properly navigate in it.

      The game features some beautiful tunes, with each level having a special dedicated song.
      Featuring different styles of electronic music such as chill, melodic dubstep, hardstep etc.
      The game features fully voice acted characters such as Kyera, your guide to the game.

      As mentioned before, depending on the skill of the player, makes for how long it takes to beat levels in the game. After finishing each level, the player gets a reward based on time spent on that level, each level has a different "best time" based on its difficulty and length.
      After finishing a level you will be sent to a closed area called the Lobby. In the lobby you'll have access to all the levels and stages you've been to and can revisit them at any time. After finishing a level or stage, you'll be able to unlock the next one in the lobby.

      Customization is one of my favorite part in games, in TIRELESS, you can change colors of your character, along with the wings he's wearing. Other then that, there are also camera filters which change the overall color of the game to make it look different and offer a cool new experience to each level. It almost feels like you are in a completely different place.
