Happy New Year, folks! With a new year undoubtedly will come new changes!

Official GameGuru News


This week we have the official update of PBR assets to the Fantasy Pack -  https://www.thegamecreators.com/post/gameguru-fantasy-pack-updated-2
And I have to say they look quite impressive indeed.  Much better quality than previous PBR re-skins in my opinion.

What's Good in the Store


This week we have some interesting products available:

It's nice to see Dagored getting back into GG projects.  His attack drones have a pretty nice animation to them and are definitely a solid choice.  M2Design continues to add more buildings and shacks.  I personally would be leery of that suspiciously good looking jet fighter as it likely is someone else's work that snuck it's way onto the store and will likely be removed shortly.

One promising piece of work that isn't yet released yet is Openload's RPG-style inventory system.

The screenshots look fantastic and I'm sure it will end up on the store in the near future so keep an eye out.


Free Stuff


Graphix made some nice stuff you can get from his pack.  Check out some of it here:

The new stuff is an ammo bag and a lightsaber-style weapon.

Third Party Tools and Tutorials


A pretty interesting discussion on getting FBX with animations to .X was had over here: https://forum.game-guru.com/thread/220399

You can also glean some really interesting ideas from PirateMyke's EBE structure thread here: https://forum.game-guru.com/thread/220414



Random Acts of Creativity


Guns of solo released an update and I have to say it's looking mighty fine!

Apparently he's hard at work at trying to improve framerate. More details can be found here but overall I like the direction this project is heading! 

Some other new projects have shown, looks like a new year means more projects!

CorzaX has a tropical island game he's working on. It looks like it's coming along well. 

Nier is working on a fantasy/medieval game and so far the screenshots look pretty good.

It's always nice to see someone making a custom HUD.

Maha25 has a jungle-style shooter as well that has some fairly decent atmospherics.

Synchromesh put together a fantastic video of the new AI as a Demo but I have to say the level itself looks great too! https://youtu.be/IxOZ_xvKhto



So all in all it's proving to be a fairly busy January!

In My Own Works


Works is progressing rapidly.  I am doing my first pass over the manuscript, have 3 proof-readers reading the work AND sent the preliminary copy to my personal editor.  Hopefully by next week mid-week I'll be in a much better position for this to move forward.  I also have about 140 pictures to take for the book so that's going to be a solid couple of days progress as well.

Proofers are giving me good reports though, saying it's going to be great for people to have all this info in one place.  Looks good so far!
