      GameDev.net and CRC Press have teamed up to bring a free ebook of content curated from top titles published by CRC Press. The freebook, Practices of Game Design & Indie Game Marketing, includes chapters from The Art of Game Design: A Book of Lenses, A Practical Guide to Indie Game Marketing, and An Architectural Approach to Level Design. The GameDev.net FreeBook is relevant to game designers, developers, and those interested in learning more about the challenges in game development. We know game development can be a tough discipline and business, so we picked several chapters from CRC Press titles that we thought would be of interest to you, the GameDev.net audience, in your journey to design, develop, and market your next game. The free ebook is available through CRC Press by clicking here. The Curated Books The Art of Game Design: A Book of Lenses, Second Edition, by Jesse Schell Presents 100+ sets of questions, or different lenses, for viewing a game’s design, encompassing diverse fields such as psychology, architecture, music, film, software engineering, theme park design, mathematics, anthropology, and more. Written by one of the world's top game designers, this book describes the deepest and most fundamental principles of game design, demonstrating how tactics used in board, card, and athletic games also work in video games. It provides practical instruction on creating world-class games that will be played again and again. View it here. A Practical Guide to Indie Game Marketing, by Joel Dreskin Marketing is an essential but too frequently overlooked or minimized component of the release plan for indie games. A Practical Guide to Indie Game Marketing provides you with the tools needed to build visibility and sell your indie games. With special focus on those developers with small budgets and limited staff and resources, this book is packed with tangible recommendations and techniques that you can put to use immediately. As a seasoned professional of the indie game arena, author Joel Dreskin gives you insight into practical, real-world experiences of marketing numerous successful games and also provides stories of the failures. View it here. An Architectural Approach to Level Design This is one of the first books to integrate architectural and spatial design theory with the field of level design. The book presents architectural techniques and theories for level designers to use in their own work. It connects architecture and level design in different ways that address the practical elements of how designers construct space and the experiential elements of how and why humans interact with this space. Throughout the text, readers learn skills for spatial layout, evoking emotion through gamespaces, and creating better levels through architectural theory. View it here.

The sources seem to at least have some code for running on Linux. Maybe it already works. Have you tried compiling it?

I guess I'm going to check it out of github later and look at it closer. X11 code is present, though I'm having trouble finding the build system. Looks like it really is just source code :)

The code you speak of is for the compiled game itself, not the torque3d ide.

Well, considering the ide is qt-based it's probably not that hard to port it to Linux.

Edit: Actually, is the ide even in the repository? I've yet to find it if it is. Edited by eugene2k

When you ask for the IDE do you then mean the environment to script in? In that case you will need Torsion, codeweaver or notepad++, or something like it(hence not a part of Torque). If you mean IDE for the source codes then it is Visual Studio 2010 or similar for other systems than windows(hence also a third part software).

If you mean the source code IDE for the world editor(like the GUI system), then it should be under engine-source-gui as far as I remember.

The toolbox seems to be in closed qt.dll files(if I am not mistaken). Also under the file called engine you can find all the codes for pretty much everything(including gui).

Sorry if I am a little unclear here but I do not really understand what you want to find(which IDE do you want to find?).

Best,

Update: I found this link, perhaps that clears things up: [url="http://garagegames.com/community/forums/viewthread/131742"]http://garagegames.com/community/forums/viewthread/131742[/url] Edited by Dwarf King
