Apologies are in order for being out last week. My day job has us do an out-of-town Biannual disaster recovery event which requires me to travel and work throughout the week.
That said there's a lot to cover, let's get to it!
I've been told that things are in the pipeline, though no specifics have been given. Expect news probably in the next few weeks with respect to that.
Rumblings from the community seem to indicate a fairly large shift centering around Multiplayer but I really hope that we also see a major spate of bugfixes given that there's a fairly heavy amount of open issues on GitHub. Once again, time will tell.
For now, your best choice is to look at what Cybernessence (see below) is doing.
What's Good In the Store
This week's totally subjective analysis of store items is.. fairly extensive. Significant amounts of creativity went into the new items on the store!
There's a superb AFV from relative newcomer Zubil0:
You can get your copy here, it's well priced at a meager $2.50!
Campana productions put out a torture pack, if you're needing something more gruesome for your project.
Graphix has been prolific in his recent PBR additions, with everything from shipping containers to fencing packs.
Sula has put together a city and road pack that is fully PBR enabled.
|Full kit includes 31 fully PBR modeled entities for building roads and cities!|
This is one of my few 'must buy' kits for this year, in my opinion. For the price, it's a great deal that will help you put together some really convincing cityscapes.
Dagored has been working diligently on his exploding bridges set and I have to say...
It's more than satisfying. It also allows for some interesting game dynamics so definitely take a look and see if it's your speed. For me, it definitely fits in well with other destructible entities such as rolfy's old exploding city set. Get your copy here: https://www.tgcstore.net/pack/11100
The music scene on the store has been exploding as well. I unfortunately haven't had time to review them all but there's some really excellent stuff that's been posted in the past few days such as:
PDKMusic's 'Wasteland Blues' music pack: https://www.tgcstore.net/product/32353
Tarkus's several recent works, all horror related and recently put into the 'decay' pack: https://www.tgcstore.net/pack/11098
There's a lot more on the store as well. Some of the recent changes to the store, by the way, include a direct link to the GCSS discord on the seller's page and some more orientation towards providing support for other engines.
Third Party Tools and Tutorials
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nO05fYSVoNQ Maiacombra made a great tutorial on how to update your models to use the illumination shader.
Apparently Vishnu Studio has finished their 'Vishnu Packer' program. This fully featured program provides significant installation support for GameGuru standalones. You can get your free copy here:
AmenMoses has been hard at work on several new scripts - the most recent of which is a 'freeze player' script that works for pausing the player's movement to allow specific events to play out: https://forum.game-guru.com/thread/220055?page=1#msg2614939
He is apparently also working on a 'gear library' which allows mechanical gears to function in GG. Very cool stuff.
There's a free 'Sci-Fi Music' library on the TGCStore. Pick up your copy here: https://www.tgcstore.net/product/32337
Graphix dropped some pipes and gauges, all PBR enabled here: https://forum.game-guru.com/thread/217932?page=14#msg2614784
Lafette put out an easter pack:
and also a beautiful fantasy loot and chest set
