Doom Game Challenge : þoom



I see the playing field populating and players taking their turns... :) 

Special thanks for this particular challenge opportunity. Full disclosure, I've actually never played Doom. Which made this first week a research exercise. Sorry JohnC and crew, but wow...I'm put back in anticipation of what may be to come from the quantity of declared participants. So tally-ho, everyone in on the ride. 

I'm going the raycaster route to stay more in key, with an old wolfenstein clone framework from an early gameinstitute.com, Perlin Noise and AI Seminar offerings by Author : JohnDeGoes(12-15 years ago). One of the graphics items Doom brought to the table were textures on the ceiling and floor. A concept my chosen framework is unaware. This go, I'd like to do a proper AI agent type or two. Also on the todo list is a simple sprite animation atlas tool that is feed from targeted screen grab so I can render the art instead of doing pixel art or photo persuasion, but mostly hand packing image sequences is such a chore.

I'd like to open this project up to others. Right now I'm thinking heavy guitar loops for game play. It would be nice to have a sound guy of the programmer persuasion and an ai guy. Lets talk. 


...but after kicking the can for more than a while, the flame piddled out. I've had this project collecting dust for a decade and thought it would be a good idea to start from wolfenstein to transition to doom. Then I was umm...whatever, I've done enough 2D...moving onward. 

Here I'm showing the abandoning and rebirth starting with a nice modular wall asset gem from the unity store and a first stab at some licks. Makes me happy.

oh I know that one :)

dude...I'm in scattered pieces over here. My easy(ish) idea was poo-poo'ed as a already made approach I'm suspecting, the Unity idea is real pretty and even easier path. A couple days ago, I had the itch to play with ogl and was reminiscing with opengl-tutorial.org. One of my favorites and kicking around a couple of ideas. (of sort) I've never actually implemented bsp sorter, so...

Found an old gem from where this hobby of mine all started with MrGameMaker. It's funny the things you miss that were there the entire time. I'm turning out to be more of a spectator it appears now, but the spirit of the challenge is doing it's job by requiring me to do new things, research deeper and try. Actually, I wanted to say at some point that you've been a huge positive influence with your recent moves. Skinning, IK, 3D painting and animation have always fascinated me. My heads been in the Collada format for a few days now because I'm an ogl fanboy and I want to get my hands on raw skinning/animation data without assimp or worse... The video above was a shameless dump to get a couple of real instrument notes out to the wild, so if you said, "sounds fantastic" :D:D :D

      I've implemented a basic version of Voxel Cone Tracing that uses a single volume texture (covering a small region around the player).
      But I want to have large and open environments, so I must use some cascaded (LoD'ed) variant of the algorithm.
      1) How to inject sky light into the voxels and how to do it fast? (e.g. imagine a large shadowed area which is lit by the blue sky above.)
      I think, after voxelizing the scene I will introduce an additional compute shader pass where, from each surface voxel, I will trace cones in the direction of the surface normal until they hit the sky (cubemap), but, I'm afraid, it would be slow with Cascaded Voxel Cone Tracing.
      2) How to calculate (rough) reflections from the sky (and distant objects)?
      If the scene consists of many "reflective" pixels, tracing cones through all cascades would destroy performance.
      Looks like Voxel Cone Tracing is only suited for smallish indoor scenes (like Doom 3-style cramped spaces).

      Im trying to put together a game using some 3D models I made in Tinkercad (And blender in the near future) and im wondering if there is anyone out there who might be interested in helping with some of the other work. Like the programming and other art. Here are a couple of my planes

      i want to make it mmorpg 
      UDP server/client
      is it worth like idk or maybe start another project

      Recently I was asked to make custom clothing for some big name gta 5 roleplay streamers on twitch. I am an advanced 3d modeler and have been using 3ds max for 8 years now. I'm looking for some potential partners who can take what I make in 3ds max and import into Zmodeler3 and help implement into GTA 5. I have no real expertise with making custom mods for GTA 5 but I can model basically anything in 3ds max. Message me if you have experience with Zmodeler3 and/or implementing mods into GTA 5 and would like to join me.

      I wanted to mess around with controller inputs, and since the manufacturer didn't provide a linux driver I just built my own
