  1. I'm looking to make a 2D fantasy platformer, something similar to Rogue Legacy, and I'm looking for an art package for it. This is just a fun little project, so I'm not looking to spend a lot of money, though a little cost is okay.   I'm looking for just the basics: character sprites, tiles, effects, etc. I really like the look of this:   https://www.assetstore.unity3d.com/#/content/2768   It's just incomplete for what I need.   Can anyone make a recommendation for something free/cheap that will cover the basics of a 2D fantasy platformer?   Thanks!
  2.   That's very compelling. Is there a video or something to accompany it? I can't quite follow how they're doing that from the slides. I Googled the guy's name a bit but could only find the slides.
  3. I'm looking to do some procedural 3D mesh generation. Specifically at the moment, I'm trying to generate some walls with windows cut out of them (basically cubes with smaller cubes cut out of them), but I'll eventually want to generate other things as well. I'm familiar with the concepts of mesh generation, but not algorithms to create 3D meshes beyond simple shapes (cubes, spheres, etc.). Can somebody point me in the right direction to learn how to procedural generate non-trivial (though also non-complex, I'm not looking to get too fancy here) 3D meshes?   Thank you.

    Rift

    So 3 weeks and 2 betas later, how is everyone feeling about the game? Here are my thoughts on beta 5 and beta 6. There have been many great changes in the past few weeks. I can't wait for the head start! Also, for anyone that doesn't know, the open beta starts today. You can sign up here.

    The last key is depleted. Here are some more KRCK-RQGC-XGGC-CF9D-GZC3 X6M7-KTWD-PGNZ-279J-NQJQ XJMD-EPTQ-P277-9WCZ-E6HH Get them while last! Beta 5 starts tomorrow at 1pm.

    You're welcome. Probly some time today. Let us know when, so the next person has some idea.

    I hear that key I gave is now depleted. Here's another: [s]R3F7-D6Q7-WREQ-H6XC-HY6Y[/s] (depleted, see this post for the latest key) Let me know when that one is depleted, too, so I know to replace it, if I can.

    Here's a beta key that will get you into all of the remaining beta events [s]DXZD-CLYG-Q6FX-CYH7-N2MT[/s] (depleted, see this post for the latest key) The next event starts Tuesday, but you can download the client early once you get your beta invite (shouldn't be long after you activate the key). That key only has 25 uses, though, so activate it quick! Also, here's a cool video of a water rift that a friend showed me today (skip ahead to 1:30 or so): [media][/media]

    Rift

    That's one of the neatest parts. Let's say you're a cleric and you want to tank. You want some serious points into justicar, for sure for the defense and the heal-everyone-through-damage abilities, but your other two roles just provide further customization as to what kind of tank you want to play. Sentinel will buff your direct heals, warden will give you some more HoTs and increase your damage output (thus increasing your justicar healing) some, purifier will give you some big damage spells that also heal you, etc. You build it however you like, and the possibilities are almost endless.

    They're giving away beta keys here. Grab one before they're gone (they go pretty quick), if you're interested in the game. The next beta event runs from Tuesday, the 25th, to Friday the 28th.

    What Does Everyone Think About The New Site Layout?

    I absolutely love the new layout and the new features. I think it's really modernized the site, and it feels like a much more rich experience than before. Great work!

    Rift

    Basically you run around, kill stuff, complete quests, close rifts (by killing stuff and completing rifts) and run through instanced dungeons with a party (which then runs around killing stuff and completing quests). There's also some PvP. My suggestion to you is to give DDO a shot. It's completely free, and it'll give you some insight into the MMO experience. Mind you, DDO is a little different from your standard MMO since it's almost entirely instanced and there's a lot more loose action, rather than structured group combat, but it'll still be informative, and for a free game it's quite fun. When you're ready to graduate from that, though, look to WoW or Rift. [color="#1C2837"]I miss having an upgradable skill tied to my ability to jump :'([/quote] [color="#1C2837"] [color="#1C2837"]DDO has that, too, actually.

    Rift

    Rift launches on March 1st, and I'd like to hear what everyone thinks of it. What has you interested/disinterested, are you planning on picking it up, and if you're a beta tester, what do you like and what do you dislike. As for myself, I ran in the last beta event and thoroughly enjoyed the game, but I will say it's incredibly like WoW. I loved WoW, and was looking for a new MMO of the same caliber (though not necessarily one so similar), so I'm pretty pleased, especially with how polished the game is for still being in beta. Certainly not a WoW killer (I don't think that's there goal, anyway), but definitely already a really great game. Here is a review of my experiences in beta 4 up on my blog, if anyone's interested in my opinion of the game in much greater detail. So whether you've played Rift or not, are looking forward to it or think it's over-hyped (or haven't even heard of it), what do you think?
  14. I suppose I could us a texture. That's a good idea. That link to the Photoshop effects is extremely helpful. I wasn't sure how to describe the types of lighting I was thinking of. Thank you both.
  15. Thanks, guys! The yield overview was great, and that Concat method is exactly what I need!
