I need a lessons

Recommended Posts

Welcome everyone! Some questions have arisen, I would like to ask for your help. Modular video game modeling. My 1st question: I created the wall models, from multiple elements.  Can i erase any non visible faces? (nonmanfold objects) can cause this problem? light calculation for example. My second question. isometric sci-fi tactical rpg I do not plan hostile hordes at one time. 5 - 10 enemy max. more polygon resources remain. I have a wall element that has 3k tri polygons that are 1.8k tri polygons, is not that too much? For Thx everyone and sry for english

Yes, as long as they snap to the same point. You do this by assigning the origin point.

Absolutely, it's a common practice in games. If light shows through it has nothing to do with the fact that your model doesn't have a back. 

Environment light checks the distance objects are from each other, so if light is leaking out then extrude your mesh so it intersects the floor/wall/roof where the light leaks.

Depends on the platform and engine. Less polygons are better but not by so much as you would think.

The average modular asset in a AAA game is around 16k triangles for LOD0. The max is 50k at the moment, more than that and you start damaging performance.

I deleted non visible faces from all elements. Before 1.348 tri, after 1.168 tri. Can i use this faceless (3th picture) model on UNREAL ENGINE? (multiple elements)

Yes , it's even recommended. There is lots of advantages to cleaning a model like this. You get better poly count, easier to unwrap, more UV space on your textures and less chance that some of your faces are Z-fighting.

It's good practice when making game assets to delete faces that can't be seen.

 

Your work looks very good. Keep it up.

      Hi guys,
      I've been struggling to create a function to draw an arrow with 2 lines making up the arrowhead.
      The challenge is that I somehow can't get the rotation right.
      I've pasted the code below and an image of the result.
      Findings so far, when I replace the 3x3 part of the transform matrix to identity, I get the same visual result.
      Also when I switch colums A and C in the matrix, this specific arrow looks good (with is pointing in the positive X direction).
      Any input would be appreciated.
      bool CDebugDraw::AddArrow(const CR_VECTOR3 &pPos1, const CR_VECTOR3 &pPos2, const CR_VECTOR3 &pColor, const bool pDepthEnabled, const bool pPersistent, const uint64_t pLifeTime) { if(!AddLine(pPos1, pPos2, pColor, pDepthEnabled, pPersistent, pLifeTime)) return false; /* p1 ------- X / | \ | / | \ | / | \ | p2 -----|-----p3 | Z | | | | p0 */ CR_VECTOR3 arrowDir = pPos2 - pPos1; arrowDir.Normalize(); // model space CR_VECTOR3 p1 = CR_VECTOR3(0.0f, 0.0f, 0.0f); CR_VECTOR3 p2 = CR_VECTOR3(0.2f, 0.0f, -0.2f); CR_VECTOR3 p3 = CR_VECTOR3(-0.2f, 0.0f, -0.2f); // transformation: translate and rotate CR_VECTOR3 transl = pPos2; CR_VECTOR3 colA = arrowDir; CR_VECTOR3 tVec; if(colA.x != 0 && colA.z != 0) tVec = CR_VECTOR3(0.0f, 1.0f, 0.0); else tVec = CR_VECTOR3(0.0f, 0.0f, 1.0f); CR_VECTOR3 colB = CMathHelper::CrossVec3(colA, tVec); CR_VECTOR3 colC = CMathHelper::CrossVec3(colB, colA); CR_MATRIX4X4 transform; transform.m11 = colA.x; transform.m12 = colB.x; transform.m13 = colC.x; transform.m14 = 0.0f; transform.m21 = colA.y; transform.m22 = colB.y; transform.m23 = colC.y; transform.m24 = 0.0f; transform.m31 = colA.z; transform.m32 = colB.z; transform.m33 = colC.z; transform.m34 = 0.0f; transform.m41 = transl.x; transform.m42 = transl.y; transform.m43 = transl.z; transform.m44 = 1.0f; // transform = CMathHelper::ComposeWorldMatrix(transform, CR_VECTOR3(1.0f), CR_VECTOR3(0.0f, 90.0f, 0.0f), pPos2); // transform to worldspace p1 = CMathHelper::TransformVec3Coord(p1, transform); p2 = CMathHelper::TransformVec3Coord(p2, transform); p3 = CMathHelper::TransformVec3Coord(p3, transform); if(!AddLine(p1, p2, CR_VECTOR3(1.0f, 0.0f, 0.0f), pDepthEnabled, pPersistent, pLifeTime)) return false; if(!AddLine(p1, p3, CR_VECTOR3(1.0f, 0.0f, 0.0f), pDepthEnabled, pPersistent, pLifeTime)) return false; if(!AddCross(p2, 0.02f, CR_VECTOR3(0.0f, 0.0f, 1.0f), pDepthEnabled, pPersistent, pLifeTime)) return false; if(!AddCross(p3, 0.02f, CR_VECTOR3(0.0f, 0.0f, 1.0f), pDepthEnabled, pPersistent, pLifeTime)) return false; return true; } Incorrect result:

      Aimed/ correct result (independent of arrow direction):

      Been a bit quiet recently, but we've been busy bug fixing and tweaking things... Now we have lots more 'Particle effects' in the game, specifically here the Flamethrower and Enemy attacks!

      Hi and thanks for reading, I have an issue with this reactive crosshair script, everything works fine until I start changing the offset. Give the script a go and you will see what I mean, when I do SetOffset(0f); it doesnt always set back to the origional state, if anyone can spot a fix I'd be super appreciative!
      using System.Collections; using System.Collections.Generic; using UnityEngine; public class ReactiveCrosshair : MonoBehaviour { [SerializeField] GameObject c_limb_prefab; private float center_offset = 0f; private float current_offset = 0f; private float max_offset = .5f; private int number_of_limbs = 4; private float limb_length = .05f; private float limb_width = .005f; private List<GameObject> c_limbs = new List<GameObject>(); public void SetupCrosshair(){ for (int i = 0; i < number_of_limbs; i++) { GameObject line_go = (GameObject)Instantiate (c_limb_prefab); line_go.transform.SetParent (this.transform); Vector3 limb_pos = new Vector3 (0f,0f,0f); //line_go.transform.position = limb_pos; line_go.transform.localPosition = limb_pos; LineRenderer line = line_go.GetComponent<LineRenderer>(); line.startWidth = limb_width; line.positionCount = 2; line.SetPosition (0, line_go.transform.localPosition + new Vector3(center_offset, 0f, 0f)); line.SetPosition (1, line_go.transform.localPosition + new Vector3(center_offset + limb_length, 0f, 0f)); line.useWorldSpace = false; c_limbs.Add(line_go.gameObject); } if (c_limbs != null) { OrientLimbs (); SetOffset (0f); } } public void OrientLimbs(){ for (int i = 0; i < c_limbs.Count; i++) { float rotation_step = 360f / (float)c_limbs.Count; c_limbs [i].transform.RotateAround (c_limbs[i].transform.position, c_limbs[i].transform.forward, 90f + (rotation_step * (float)i)); } } public void SetOffset(float _current_spread){ float offset = Mathf.Lerp (0f, max_offset, _current_spread); for (int i = 0; i < number_of_limbs; i++) { if (offset > current_offset) { Vector3 pos = c_limbs [i].transform.position + (c_limbs [i].transform.TransformDirection (Vector3.right) * offset); c_limbs [i].transform.position = pos; } if (offset < current_offset) { Vector3 pos = c_limbs [i].transform.position - (c_limbs [i].transform.TransformDirection (Vector3.right) * offset); c_limbs [i].transform.position = pos; } } Debug.Log ("SetOffset() offset: " + offset.ToString () + " _current_spread: " + _current_spread.ToString() + " localPos: " + c_limbs[1].transform.localPosition); current_offset = offset; } }

      State of the search
      I'm not looking / I'm still looking
       
      Description
      It is a third person game where you join more players to fight against bosses in the PvE style of the mmorpg, looking for online companions to help you defeat your enemy, where everyone does their respective work, such as tank, dps or heal, in groups of 5 or 10 players.
      The difference with other mmorpg is that here, since there is no open world, you will not have to go through it doing hundreds of missions and using many hours to get to the content that really interests you, which, in the case of PvE, are the dungeons and raids.
       
      Objectives of the project
      For this project we will first make a demo that will only be the boss of a 5 player dungeon.
      The first phase of this project is to release a video gameplay for crowdfunding (kickstarter maybe), so we will focus more on the visual, which could be falsified if the mechanics do not work. If the crowdfunding gives green light would be the game, which if in turn would work would be updated in the future with more dungeons and bands. The ideal would be to make a playable demo.
       
      Compensation
      If this game generates benefits outside crowdfunding, the profits will be distributed depending on the work and disbursement of each one.
       
      Technology
      Unreal. If you want to learn how to use this software with the project, you can.
       
      Required profiles
      - At the moment 2 Programmers (if has multiplayer knowledge in Unreal better).
       
      - 1 2D Artist to make the interface design and some concepts. You are going to try make interfaces like this:

      It would be ideal if you can devote at least 7 hours by week.
      It is a plus if you have experience with high level PvE content in some mmorpg.
       
      Team structure
      Pablo. Environment artist.
      Diego. Character artist.
       
      Web
      Waiting until the equipment is assembled.
       
      Contact
      pablo.barreto.jimenez@gmail.com
       
      Additional Information
      I have the GDD, it depends on the work but, I think the demo could be done in 6 months.
      Here I leave some images of what I did of the project in Unity, where basically I have been testing (The project will be done in Unreal):



       
      Desired feedback
      If you think you can give me some advice about the project, feel free to give your opinion.

      A developer I am working with has sent me a project that when packaged is in VR mode, however its not supposed to be. So when I package the project to windows in unreal engine 4, the screen is split in 2 as if its VR. Would anyone know how to get the project out of VR mode so that its just a 3D game? I have disabled VR  plugins and chekced through the project settinsg to untick any VR setting, but still not managed to get it out of VR mode.

      Hello, my name is Mason, and I've been working on a Quake style arena shooter about destroying boxes on and off for about a year now. I have a proof of concept with all of the basic features, but as an artist with little programming skill I've reached the end of my abilities as a programmer haha. I need someone to help fix bugs, optomize code, and to implent new features into the game. As a programmer you will have creative freedom to suggest new features and modes to add into the game if you choose to, I'm usually very open to suggestions :).
      What is required:
      Skill using C#
      Experience with Unity
      Experience using UNET (since it is a multiplayer game), or the effort and ability to learn it
      Compensation:
      Since the game currently has no funding, we can split whatever revenue the game makes in the future. However if you would perfer I can create 2D and/or 3D assets for whatever you need in return for your time and work.
      It's a very open and chill enviornment, where you'll have relative creative freedom. I hope you are interested in joining the team, and have a good day!

      I am a talented 2D/3D artist with 3 years animation working experience and a Degree in Illustration and Animation. I have won a world-wide art competition hosted by SFX magazine and am looking to develop a survival game. I have some knowledge of C sharp and have notes for a survival based game with flexible storyline and PVP. Looking for developers to team up with. I can create models, animations and artwork and I have beginner knowledge of C sharp with Unity. The idea is Inventory menu based gameplay and is inspired by games like DAYZ.
      Here is some early sci-fi concept art to give you an idea of the work level. Hope to work with like minded people and create something special. email me andrewparkesanim@gmail.com.
      Developers who share the same passion please contact me, or if you have a similar project and want me to join your team email me. 
      Many thanks, Andrew.
