      Hello forum,
      I have some decent amount of experience in Unity making games for Software Engineering projects in college, these were very specific projects however and I still am fairly new to building games. I wanted to make a game that uses the shadows of objects for collision detecting (i.e. shooting a gun at a characters shadow causes that character damage. What is the best engine to do this in (game will be 3D), and does anyone have any advice on how to approach this concept? I consider myself fairly experienced in programming, but game dev is just an entirely different beast.

      Hey all,
      I've been slowly working on my game called AotW for a while now.  I have come to the conclusions that it would be nice to cooperate with 1 or 2 others to help finish it.  Ive been trying to keep my GDD up to date with my ideas and development so that would give a better overview of the game when the time comes.  Currently I have a basic skeleton of the RPG elements needed but everything can still be discussed and talked about and we can transform my idea to something the group likes.
      The premise of the game is a Diablo-like procedurally generated map with RPG elements that include sockets, inventory, classes, abilities, crafting, loot, items, sockets, and enchanting.  This will be done in a 2D iso view as I can't do 3D art and I enjoy 2D games a lot.
      I don't plan on releasing this as this is more of a hobby project for me and I have a full-time job.  Though I'd like to start putting more hours into development and having others definitely will be motivation.  I also want to be able to say I have finally "finished" a game idea to some degree.  If the time comes and we want to release it, then we can go ahead and do so but that's not my purpose or plan.

      Hi, I've been working on this issue for a while and haven't yet found an answer.
      Does anyone know the best way to convert unity's LAT & LONG into a vector 3 position that I could use in a virtual world (if it's even possible). 
      Thankyou in advance

      I am taking an absolute beginner's game development course and we have just finished game jams in small groups. Our current assignment is to get feedback from people working in any aspect of game development. I would very much appreciate any feedback! The game is up on itchi.io (sound warning) https://wobbegong.itch.io/zombie-shooter It's essentially a very basic PvE.
      I also have some things I'm wondering about, but you don't necessarily have to answer these. 
      1. Do you have any tips on working with physics? My group wrestled a bit with Rigidbody physics not totally working the way we wanted to -- jumping ended up kind of floaty and inclines seem to mess up movement. Alternatively... how can I build terrains with depth that won't result in wonky physics?
      2. How can I keep up the level of challenge in an interesting way as the player progresses through the waves?
      3. What are some of your personal guidelines for creating title screens?
      Thank you very much in advance!

      I'm having a weird issue with detecting a collision. I've tried everything I could find online but nothing seems to work. I have a brick object. It has a 2D Collider attached and I have also attached a 2D Rigidbody on it. I also have an EndScreen 2D Collider. The EndScreen 2D collider is tagged with "EndScreen". I am trying to detect when a brick collides with the end screen collider and simply print "game over" in the console. 
      This is my current code for this part of the program, it is attached to the bricks:
      void OnCollisionEnter (Collision2D collision) { if (collision.gameObject.tag == "EndScreen") { Debug.Log("Game over"); } } Several things have happened depending on the set up. If I have the rigidbody 2D set as static, my ball object can still collide with the bricks, but I get no Log message. If I set it to Kinematic or Dynamic, I get absolutely no interaction between the ball and the bricks, and nothing when the bricks pass through the collider. I have tried to set the collider to a trigger and use OnTriggerEnter2D, no change. I have tried to put the rigidbody on the EndScreen object and tried to set it's body type to all 3 settings, no change. The only thing I can think of that I have not done is put the script on the EndScreen object and switch the tag to the bricks. The reason I have not done this is because I will have several types of bricks, some of which will have different tags. 
      Please tell me somebody can see what I'm doing wrong here, because I'm losing my mind over something I feel should be ridiculously simple. Thanks.

We are currently working on a Third person Shooter game using unity, where the zombies would always be coming in the level and attacking the player.

we though of creating 10 locations on a map and the game would start in any of the 10 locations which the user would select from the menu.

the player would have to clear the level he is playing by killing all the zombies and keep getting experience, thus he would gain experience and his level would increase(level 2, 3, 4, 5...so on) and so would the level of the zombie..it would be endless.


the missions will spawn in any of the 10 locations, 2 or 3 missions at a time pops up on the map in menu.


I was thinking about the level progression and would like he and advice on it.


these are the parameters in my game for level progression.


1. player has to kill zombies and gain experience.

for example, say player is at level 1 and he has to gain 100 experience to go to level 2, thus to go level 3 he may need 125 XP and so on.

2. as the level of the player progresses,so would the level of the zombies will increase, the players health would not reduce fast when he is taking damage from zombies, zombies would find to hard to kill the player and player would find it hard to kill the zombies, or if a zombies with a higher level than that of player comes, then player take more damage and so on.

3. there are around 15 weapons (machine gun and shot gun) in the game store, player will have one primary and one secondary weapon in his inventory, and he can buy weapons from in game currency and keep on upgrading the weapons he is playing with in game currency. and the upgrading could go endless as long as the player plays the game.

with weapon upgrading the damage parameter of the gun would increase.


I would like to know how is level progression managed in the games and what approach to follow in such a situation, so that the balance is maintained in the game.


Any Suggestions would be of great help !!!

"more of the same" ("sore of the maim" heheh) can be spiced up by other variables, eg. a level where some factor influences the basic activities. i kinda consider that boredom is an inevitability, so working to preserve the criteria that make that exercise fun (eg. running round and shooting risky things) while varying other things (level is on a slope) for the length of the campaign.


i also like to give two new things to deal with at a time, so it's not just "oh, tougher to damage" but another factor "really bright sky" or something that makes dealing with both a constant exercise in envaluation and determination/using player skills.
