Hello this is my game war game idea. based on WW2

This war game idea is a basic shooter game. where  there's two teams of 20. Americans vs germans. You can spawn in on either team at their main outpost. The battles will last 1 hour and starts at 0600(dawn) if the battle is not completed then the battle goes into sudden death meaning the next base capture wins that battle. Then you go back to the loading screen where you can customize your player, start a new battle, join a squad and invite your friends(teamwork is heavily influenced throughout the game). You start as pvt and you rank up with xp. Xp is based of of how many kills, captures,teamwork. If you die you have to choose one of the two options (your player is dead for that battle he can not respawn) you can stay and spectate the battle or you can leave. If you choose to spectate you will earn a spectate bonus and if you choose to leave you get the xp that you earned. 

LOADING SCREEN 

PLAYER CUSTOMIZER-

face(eyes,hair,color)

uniform type

soldier chooser-

AMERICANS

[rifleman] m1 garand, two f1 frags, spade

[anti tank] m1 bazooka, m1 carbine,one f1 frag

[machine gunner] m1919, m1911

[submachine gunner] thompson,m911,one f1 frag

GERMANS

[rifleman] k98,two m24,spade

[anti tank] panzerschreck, mp40 

[machine gunner] mg42, luger 

[submachine gunner] mp40,two m24,luger

SQUADS-

You can create a squad or join one. In the squad you can invite your friends and play together. In the squad you have a voice chat between the squad members. Where you can chat while in a battle. 

MAPS

The maps will be rectangular and there will be a main outpost on each side. then there are two smaller outpost on the way to the middle outpost. The object is to get through all the outpost and kill every other player on the enemy team.

im looking for developers who will get in a chat and talk to me about this game. thank you for reading have a great day/night.

This might be easier to do as a mod than an original game. I doubt many posters here want to get in a chat room with you.

Have you made any games before? This seems very complicated for a first project.

One bit of advice, don't do 3D your first time. It's harder than you might think.

The basic idea seems good. It seems like arming the American riflemen with semi-automatic firearms without giving the Germans an equivalent seems like it could end up unbalancing the game. Of course, without knowing much about how the basic mechanics of the combat works, it's hard to say.

You didn't mention tank warfare, so I am confused by the anti-tank troop type.

This seems like a typical online shooter. Of course this idea works, but it also doesn't do anything particularly new, or take many risks.

Typically people will only post on design threads they consider serious, or at least interesting. First, make us believe this game might actually get made.

I can only agree with RidName. Why would I play this game over any other typical ww2 shooter? It sound A LOT like call of duty. Such games are also highly dependant on polish to be enjoyful. You need a big experienced team (since it's both 3d and online) and a lot of money. And such games fail all the time even IF they have a big experienced team and a nice budget. There is a reason indie studios often stay away from the genre, they just end up boring if not done just right.

As you seem to be quite new to game development, mod another game or come up with a scope you can actually pull off (I assume you are alone in this project). If you are completely new, complete (not only start) at LEAST a couple of 2d games before starting one in 3d or you'll just be frustrated and not complete it.

      Hello fellow devs!
      Once again I started working on an 2D adventure game and right now I'm doing the character-movement/animation. I'm not a big math guy and I was happy about my solution, but soon I realized that it's flawed. My player has 5 walking-animations, mirrored for the left side: up, upright, right, downright, down. With the atan2 function I get the angle between player and destination. To get an index from 0 to 4, I divide PI by 5 and see how many times it goes into the player-destination angle.

      In Pseudo-Code:
      angle = atan2(destination.x - player.x, destination.y - player.y) //swapped y and x to get mirrored angle around the y axis
      index = (int) (angle / (PI / 5));
      PlayAnimation(index); //0 = up, 1 = up_right, 2 = right, 3 = down_right, 4 = down

      Besides the fact that when angle is equal to PI it produces an index of 5, this works like a charm. Or at least I thought so at first. When I tested it, I realized that the up and down animation is playing more often than the others, which is pretty logical, since they have double the angle.

      What I'm trying to achieve is something like this, but with equal angles, so that up and down has the same range as all other directions.

      I can't get my head around it. Any suggestions? Is the whole approach doomed?

      Thank you in advance for any input!

      Hi,
      Can anyone point me into good direction how to resolve this?
      I have flat mesh made from many quads (size 1x1 each) each split into 2 triangles. (made procedural)
      What i want to achieve is : "merge" small quads into bigger ones (show on picture 01), English is not my mother language and my search got no result... maybe i just form question wrong.
      i have array[][] where i store "map" information, for now i'm looking for blobs of same value in it -> and then for each position i create 1 quad. and on end create mesh from all.
      is there any good algorithm for creating mesh between random points on same plane? less triangles better. Or "de-tesselate" this to bigger/less triangles/quads?
      Also i would like to find "edges" and create "faces" between edge points (picture 02 shows what i want to achieve).
      No need for whole code, just if someone can point me in good direction would be nice.
      Thanks

      Hi everyone! 

      I am from an indie studio that has received funding for our concept and is ready to create the next generation 2D Pokemon-inspired MMORPG called Phantasy World. This ad is for a volunteer position but hopefully will transition into something more. Our vision is to create a game that draws inspiration from the series but is dramatically different in both aesthetics and gameplay as the work would be our own.
       
      We are hoping that you can help us make this a reality and are looking for game developers familiar with the unreal engine and would be happy to work on a 2D top down game. Sprite artists are also welcome as we are in desperate need of talented artists! Join our discord and let's have a chat! https://discord.gg/hfDxwDX

      Here's some of our in game sprites for playable characters while moving around the game world! Hope to see you soon!

      Hi, 
       
      I am working on a project where I'm trying to use Forward Plus Rendering on point lights. I have a simple reflective scene with many point lights moving around it. I am using effects file (.fx) to keep my shaders in one place. I am having a problem with Compute Shader code. I cannot get it to work properly and calculate the tiles and lighting properly. 
       
      Is there anyone that is wishing to help me set up my compute shader?
      Thank you in advance for any replies and interest!
