  4. GameDaily.Biz spoke to Improbable about its new shortcuts to multiplayer game development for Unity and Unreal. Improbable helps game developers build believable online worlds with its bespoke technology, SpatialOS. Now, that task is much easier and accessible for those building games on the technology with the recent release of the SpatialOS Game Development Kit (GDK) for Unity. With these kits, Improbable hopes that developers find it easier to create vast, dynamic and unique worlds. This GDK for Unity includes a 200-gamer, first-person project that allows developers to experiment and tinker with their ideas for what their vision of a multiplayer game will look like. GameDaily.Biz met with Improbable’s Head of Product Marketing, Paul Thomas, and Head of Comms, Daniel Nye Griffiths, to speak about the SpatialOS GDK for Unity, as well as the upcoming launch of the SpatialOS GDK for Unreal Engine. In its first week, the SpatialOS GDK for Unity achieved over 2,000 developer sign ups to use it. “What we're trying to do is basically make it really fast for people to build multiplayer games,” said Thomas. “It comes with all the multiplayer networking so that developers don’t have to do any multiplayer networking. It comes with feature modules to allow [easy] solutions to common multiplayer problems, like player movement and shooting. And it comes with a cool starter project where you have 200 players in a free-for-all scenario. You can obviously use the power of SpatialOS to scale that project up to more players, with NPCs, and things like that. It gives people a really good base to start building multiplayer games.” There are several games currently in development or early access that utilize SpatialOS. The first into Early Access was Spilt Milk Studios’ Lazarus, a space MMO where the player becomes a pilot in a universe that ends every week, complete with a map that’s twice the size of Austria. Additionally, Bossa Studios released its survival exploration game Worlds Adrift into Steam Early Access earlier this year. Also using SpatialOS is Scavengers from Midwinter Entertainment, a studio founded by former 343 Industries studio head and Halo 4 Creative Director, Josh Holmes; the game is heavily inspired by his Halo 5: Guardians’ multiplayer mode, Warzone. Right alongside that company, Berlin-based Klang Studios is working on Seed, a simulation MMO that, according to its developers, lets players “interact and collaborate to create a world driven by real emotion and aspiration.” According to Thomas, for those looking to use the SpatialOS GDK for Unity, there is no limit to what their games can do with Improbable’s tech. “What we're doing is expanding the possible gameplay you can do. Traditionally, when you make a multiplayer game, you're constrained by one single server. So you can say you have a 64-player game with a handful of NPCs or you could have a world that's 3km by 3km. With Spatial, you can go beyond that, test a much broader canvas to start thinking about different gameplay.” “You can go for a massive online persistent MMO with 10,000 players and hundreds of thousands of NPCs, something very, very vast and big like that. But you can also have smaller experiences. For example, there's a lot of interesting space in just extending what you see in the Battle Royale genre and session-based gameplay.” Thomas continued: “Our partners at Automaton have a game in development called Mavericks. The interesting thing there is they have a Battle Royale with 1,000 people, but what I really find interesting is the gameplay mechanics they've put in, like footprints so you can track people. They've added a cool fire propagation mechanic so you can start a fire that spreads across the map and changes the world. Or you can add destructible buildings and things like that.” “So I think even looking at smaller scale games, we add a lot of value in terms of the new gameplay you can start adding. I'm just interested to see what people do with this extra power - what they can come up with.” While Battle Royale games and MMOs are obvious standouts for genres that best fit with SpatialOS, Thomas introduced some other ideas of genres that could benefit from the technology. “I also think there's a space for very interesting MMORTSs as well,” he said. “An RTS where you have persistent systems, like telling AIs to do things and then coming back to them a week later and seeing what's happened is an interesting space.” “I also see interesting mobile experiences that could come up. Having these worlds where you lay down some interesting things and then come back a few weeks later to see how they've evolved and changed, and the massive player interaction. Say for example with Pokemon Go, we can actually roam around the world and battle on the streets. I can see something like that working very well. Again, these are just ideas we've had and talked to people about. It's about giving people that flexibility and the ability to explore these ideas.” Klang’s Seed Griffiths added the possibility of events in a game that will have a massive, rippling, and lasting impact on its world as something that has people excited. One example he gives is how someone on one side of the map can do something that’ll have a knock-on effect for the rest of the world in real time. “There's a whole bunch of different angles you can take, some of which are about much larger player numbers or a much larger map, but there are other things you can do which are taking a relatively constrained game experience, a smaller map, a smaller number of players and adding richness to the game as well.” In fact, this is something that Thomas refers to as a “persistent in memory database,” meaning that for every object in the game world, there’s a history. Two examples cited by Thomas: “...a player could chop down a tree and that tree stays disappeared forever. Or a player can kill a big monster that was raiding a town and that town no longer gets raided by that monster, and this changes the dynamics of the world. Worlds can have a history. That means players can have a lot more meaning in these MMO worlds.” “Normally in MMOs, they're kinda like roller coaster rides: you go into a dungeon, you kill the boss and that guy respawns. It all resets,” Thomas continues. “But in Spatial MMOs, you could have these persistent effects that should change the gameplay meaningfully for all the rest of the player base.” “The other one I think that is interesting is the level of dynamism that you could have. So because you can have so much more server-side compute, you could potentially have NPCs roaming around the world changing their mind and deciding all of a sudden, 'oh, we're going to attack this player's base' or 'we're gonna go attack this town' and they have a lot more range and emotion and intelligence to them that you'd not see in other MMOs. “Normally in MMOs, NPCs sit there tethered. You go near them and they come and attack you, you run away, and they go back to where they were. In a Spatial MMO, that NPC can trace you across the whole map or a group of them can decide to get together and attack someone..” Bossa Studios' Worlds Adrift Next week, Improbable plans to launch its SpatialOS GDK for Unreal Engine, which will have a big focus on ease of use for access to Unreal, as well as a big emphasis on porting your projects to SpatialOS. “One of the things we'll be trying to push is a porting guide so you'll be able to take your existing Unreal game, move it onto SpatialOS and then you can grow to expand it with new and extra gameplay,” says Thomas. “ You can bring across your existing Unreal game and it feels very, very native and similar to Unreal if you're familiar with Unreal.” Griffiths continued, explaining how testing these experiences includes free cloud deployments, to a certain point. “If you're developing in SpatialOS in other ways, we provide a sandbox environment so you can get your game running. When you’re happy, you can port it over and sort of experiment with it in a free sandbox environment with a small number of cores to get started.” Based on what we learned, Improbable’s SpatialOS GDK for Unity will give developers enhanced flexibility to produce more in depth and engaging videos games. That said, we look forward to catching up with the company in the near future to see how this exciting technology is being used in the different games that we play.
  5. As I like to say with a deep sadness in my soul, I've been failing at game dev for about three decades. I've been having fun, but I'm ultimately disappointed with my progress. So I've once again changed my goals and strategy and over engineered it. Which brings me to my current project. My new goal is to get better through repetition, but using a strategy for that repetition to make my skill development more efficient. So far, I've completed some clones of the first levels of two games (Ninja Gaiden and Super Mario Bros. for the NES), and am starting out on making the first level of Bionic Commando (also for the NES). I'm redoing the graphics in half the res of the originals for now. So far, this strategy seems to have taught me more in the few months I've been doing it, than the five years it took me to complete my last game. The difference I suppose is that I'm not going to attempt to release most of these games. I might consider polishing and releasing the ones that aren't clones. This big learning project looks like it will take me a few years, in the meantime I'll probably start other projects while still working through it but this is going to be my primary project for a long while. And something that I think I should have done in the first place so many years ago. I'd like to share my progress from time to time and hopefully have some discussions.
  6. Well Rogue is a unique multiplayer shooter that allows you to semi customise your own powers & create your own weapons.Wether you create a handgun or something else, it’s up to you and what gun you create that could turn the tide of war in your favour.WHAT GAMEMODES WILL THERE BE?: Well here are a list of them (TO BE CHANGED) Free For All, 20 players battle it out to see who will get the most kills Team Capture,10 V 10 will battle it out to capture an area War, a massive 50v50 fight for an area, (or 100v100 not yet decided) Hop into your vehicles, get your Grenade Ready. At the moment my main focus is on assembling a strong team that can work together to make something great. The game will be built on the unreal engine. The 2 main focuses on recruiting are 3D Artists/Animators (animators are important) and UE4 Programmers. if interested contact me on discord at RioIsntHere#4207

    BIZARRE Sprint 31 plus Sprint 32

    Sorry, we're late. We had to keep the house! Sprint 30 and Sprint 31 is done and we managed a lot. The preparations for the new Gameplay Video are almost finished. For example, we textured a lot of objects for Clearwater's home, but also for his grown-up world-outside. We modelled and textured tons of furniture, books, trees and stuff. The game environment gets bigger and bigger. Houses get built, streets arise, a city is developing. Furthermore, we improved Clearwater's video sequence animations. We did this in several steps. We split the tests in three phases. The first, second and the last revision (still open). We roughly tested Clearwater's appearance, movement and behavior in the first phase, we improved and refined all video relevant animations more precisely during the second one, but in the last revision, planned for Sprint 32, we want to check all vertices, all envelopes, all angles and bones in the closest view possible. All sequences must look perfectly for the new Gameplay Video. Okay. What else? We shot a cool full-body 4k pic of Clearwater. During the sequence tests, he look at me like this! Hot! I continued writing the book BIZARRE Episode I. Really! I wrote all bizarre dreams unless one. I mean, dream no. 13 implicates the end of the story and is already known, for me. Dream no. 12 is still unwritten. Hopefully, I finish writing the book until New Year's Day! After the completion of the book, I'll read it again. In case I still like what I have written, the book gets edited. I'll publish the book asap and only in German, unfortunately. At least for now. When the book is published, all #WORDSproductions team members will read it to decide which parts of the book get realized in the game. Our plans for the current Sprint 32: We want to texture all unfinished objects inside and outside Clearwater's apartment, i.e. the kitchen objects, the park objects, etc. I want to continue writing the book BIZARRE Episode I, dream no. 12 and 13 hopefully We want to work on Clearwater's shooting-behavior till perfection We want to perfect Clearwater's video sequence animations in the last revision phase, we want to perfect Clearwater's appearance We want to model more decorative objects for the apartement till completion It is indeed possible that the new Gameplay Video gets published this year, but sure, we can't promise anything, cuz Bugs are after us, u know! That's it. Enjoy the Christmas time (by playing insanely video games!)
  8. Today starts our new sprint 30. During the last sprint, we did get much work done. 😊 We can’t publish that much pics these days, since we don’t want to spoil the new video scenes. But, I tell you something. 😄 We finished modeling all objects for the kitchen, also for Clearwaters home-office and main hall. We offer you a lil’ glimpse 😉: We need more special textures for some of these objects. It’s a work item for the current sprint. We designed furniture and had fun. We finished texturing some houses from Clearwaters world-outside. We’ve to continue, anyway. We finished modeling all animations relevant for the new video as listed in the script from the last sprint. We made a first-scene animation where he realizes something is weird. We modeled a look-out-of-the-window animation, a looking-around animation, a sneak-animation, and so on. We also modeled several facial animations for the above-mentioned body animations. Some new faces can look left, right, up and down, etc. Clearwater is therefore able to move his eyes and to blink. But we still need to test ALL of these newly created animations in the current sprint. Now, we can throw all necessary-for-the-new-video ingredients in a big bowl. It’s our mission henceforth to make a tasteful soup out of it. How euphemistic! We want to start creating some video sequences, i.e. positioning the cameras in Clearwaters apartment, set light, test all animations, fix all Bugs and issues, adapt Clearwaters appearance, and make everything looking good. After having eaten all Bugs, the video is ready for YouTube. Furthermore, we modeled a hot animation for Clearwaters full body 4K Pic. It’s supposed to be a promotional pic that will appear on social media and on our new game blog as appetizer. 😉 During the current sprint, we want to test and render the pic of him, just minutes before we publish it. This week, I swear, I’ll continue writing the book BIZARRE Episode I! Charly Men’s website charly-men.com gets a new design, too. Our software developer started writing code. I get my own new Content Management System called BeeMS. Don’t ask me why it is so called. 😛 The new game blog for BIZARRE is included in the charly-men.com website as it is now. The Charly Men website get’s expanded and will later include the Charly Men’s BIZARRE game blog, all Charly Men’s books, paintings, lyrics and songs. It gets published hopefully before the sun used up all its helium. I sum all up: We want to texture houses and objects in the apartment. We want to create some video sequences to test all animations and textures. We want to fix all issues and Bugs seen during the video sequence tests. We want to continue writing the book BIZARRE Episode I. We want to render a nice 4K Pic of Clearwater and publish it. We want to continue programming the new Charly Men website as well as the new game blog. I have a great appetite for soup now!
  9. We are a group of people Looking for UE4 Programmers And 2D & 3D Artists & A SFX Artist for a Star Wars fan project.Obviously any contributions would be very appreciated.The game is a 3rd Person action adventure Uncharted like game on a smaller scale & much shorter.Preferably we are looking for people who want to fill their portfolio a bit. Concepts are currently being made for the characters, weapons etcObviously as the title says this is an unpaid project. If interested and you want more details then email me at rioishere14@gmail.com(P.S. I don’t go on here often so I probably won’t see your message)
  10. I'm in need of making a Boolean variable public somehow, so that multiple blueprints of mine can reference when an action can and cannot be done. I searched around already, finding answers that didn't completely apply, were outdated missing their explanation images, or were simply confusing. This is what I'd like to accomplish, without the error of course. I do have the "Has Weapon" variable set as visible (The eye icon is open), I am just unsure on what to do from there to allow these sword pickup BP's to reference that Boolean variable in my character blueprint. Maybe I am going about this wrong; any solutions are welcome.

  15. Hi guy , i wanna really quickly introduce myself , So i'm a 18 year old Highschool student that have been for a while really pationate about video game (i have been doing Esport , Streaming all that really fun stuff) but lately i had to made a choice about what i wanna do in life and i'm pretty sure its going to be in the video game industry. Last year i started learning to use UE4 , pretty much only for fun trying to recreate cool stuff i was seing in the game i was playing at that time. But now , i wanted to trie creating something of my own so i wanna show you what a got in the head. Also , I'm french so sorry if my spelling is quite right.. So in Short , i was playing lately alot of FPS (Quake champion , Law Breaker and bunch of other cool game). I was talkinh with my friend and its pretty much their that a got the global idea of what this game is going to be. I wanted to take little simple game mecanics from every game and put them i one unique game. For exemple , Player could Strafe Jump like in quake , while other Start randomly Wall running like in Titanfall 2. After i came up with what would be the game objective , because player won't start playing a game for no reason . I didn't played CTF game for a long time so , i decided why not make this a CTF game , But ctf is kinda mainstream and really linear in term of game play, This is when my friend had this idea of <<Why not let the player decide if the want to play it ''Run it down to the flag'' or ''let's just #*@! the other team'' (sorry for the bad words) >>. at this time i had a clear idea of what would exactly be the Core ''gameplay'' (if we can call this gameplay). To win you have two option : 1- Capture the flag and bring it back to your's. If you managed to do so , the game instantly stop and you win. 2- Kill all the enemy team. Now you most be thinking , <<Well how? they will just respawn right?>> well no , because i came up with the idea of limiting the number of time player can respawn using some kind of respawn point system. i'll came up with more details later (i have to go to my next class) , but let me know what you think about my idea? what should i add or ajust?

  17. So I am currently on the Game Design aspect of an ambitious MMOFPS project. I need to know if having either full body awareness or floating arms be best to achieve better performance? or if it doesn't matter. I see some FPS's feature full body awareness but I would like to know why most of them don't have them?
  18. Hi Guys We are looking for a n assistant producer to assist myself with day to day running of our project. It is a 3D first/third person battle simulator. Its set in the Viking age in Norway and we want to create a brutal but fun game with focus game mechanics. We would like to have a stamina system that is linked to a weapon and armour weight system. This system will require management from the player if they hope to survive. This project is intended to be commerical so if all goes well, you will recieve a share. If interested you will be sent a copy of the GDD. You will be assisting myself with oragnising the project which will include giving tasks to devs, attending meetings, helping devs with questions, social media and promotion, enquires, acting as a reprenstative of the team, overseeing the development of the project, assisting with contracts, contributing to the games design, resolving disputes among other producer realted tasks. We have a team of other devs that will be working on this, 3d artists, a composer, a programmer and concept. If you are reading this but not intersted in this role but want to be involved please message me as we are still looking for other devs and artists.

    Unreal Fifth Entry - November 10, 2018

    Hello all! This is the fifth entry of my development blog for my project 'Tracked Mind'. Since last post I've been taking care of the system that controls how the Player character moves and how stamina effects movement, and of course some bugs that appeared while I implemented it . The new version of the movement system will be able to keep a better track of the Player's stamina and different movement speed depending on the Player's stance etc. I am also creating the first draft of a couple of new maps. I'm uploading a few new screenshots of the game, one of them shows one of the new maps, let me know what you think! Some changes this month: - The movement system has been updated. - New maps (first draft of them). Bug fixes - Fixed a bug that would prevent reloading of the shotgun. - Fixed a bug that caused the Player to be able to sprint even when stamina was at 0. Thank you once again for reading! /Mikael Henriksson

Updates in Unreal Studio 4.21 also offer new capabilities and enhanced productivity for users in the enterprise space, including architecture, manufacturing, product design, and other areas of professional visualization. Unreal Studio's Datasmith workflow toolkit now includes support for Autodesk Revit, and enhanced material translation for Autodesk 3ds Max, all enabling more efficient design review and iteration. Key features across Unreal Engine 4.21 include: Replication Graph: The Replication Graph plugin, which is now production-ready, makes it possible to customize network replication in order to build large-scale multiplayer games that would not be viable with traditional replication strategies. Niagara Enhancements: The Niagara VFX feature set continues to grow, with substantial quality of life improvements and Nintendo Switch support added in Unreal Engine 4.21. Sequencer Improvements: New capabilities within Sequencer allow users to record incoming video feeds to disk as OpenEXR frames and create a track in Sequencer, with the ability to edit and scrub the track as usual. This enables users to synchronize video with CG assets and play them back together from the timeline. Pixel Streaming (Early Access): With the new Pixel Streaming feature, users can author interactive experiences such as product configurations or training applications, host them on a cloud-based GPU or local server, and stream them to remove devices via web browser without the need for additional software or porting. Mobile Optimizations: The mobile development process gets even better thanks to all of the mobile optimizations that were developed for Fortnite's initial release on Android, in addition to all of the iOS improvements from Epic's ongoing updates. With the help of Samsung, Unreal Engine 4.21 includes all of the Vulkan engineering and optimization work that was done to help ship Fortnite on the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 and is 100% feature compatible with OpenGL ES 3.1. Much Faster Cook Times: With the release of 4.21, the cooking process has been optimized, resulting in up to a 60% speed increase in cook times. Low-level code avoids performing unnecessary file system operations, and cooker timers have been streamlined. Gauntlet Automation Framework (Early access): The new Gauntlet automation framework enables developers to automate the process of deploying builds to devices, running one or more clients and or/servers, and processing the results. Gauntlet scripts can automatically profile points of interest, validate gameplay logic, check return values from backend APIs, and more! Gauntlet has been battle tested for months in the process of optimizing Fortnite, and is a key part of ensuring it runs smoothly on all platforms. Animation System Optimizations and Improvements: Unreal Engine’s animation system continues to build on best-in-class features thanks to new workflow improvements, better surfacing of information, new tools, and more. Blackmagic Video Card Support: Unreal Engine 4.21 also adds support for Blackmagic video I/O cards for those working in film and broadcast. Creatives in the space can now choose between Blackmagic and AJA Video Systems, the two most popular options for professional video I/O. Improved Media I/O: Unreal Engine 4.21 now supports 10-bit video I/O, audio I/O, 4K, and Ultra HD output over SDI, as well as legacy interlaced and PsF HD formats, enabling greater color accuracy and integration of some legacy formats still in use by large broadcasters. Windows Mixed Reality: Unreal Engine 4.21 natively supports the Windows Mixed Reality (WMR) platform and headsets, such as the HP Mixed Reality headset and the Samsung HMD Odyssey headset. Magic Leap Improvements: Unreal Engine 4.21 supports all the features needed to develop complete applications on Magic Leap's Lumin-based devices -- rendering, controller support, gesture recognition, audio input/output, media, and more. Oculus Avatars: The Oculus Avatar SDK includes an Unreal package to assist developers in implementing first-person hand presence for the Rift and Touch controllers. The package includes avatar hand and body assets that are viewable by other users in social applications. Datasmith for Revit (Unreal Studio): Unreal Studio's Datasmith workflow toolkit for streamlining the transfer of CAD data into Unreal Engine now includes support for Autodesk Revit. Supported elements include materials, metadata, hierarchy, geometric instancing, lights, and cameras. Multi-User Viewer Project Template (Unreal Studio): A new project template for Unreal Studio 4.21 enables multiple users to connect in a real-time environment via desktop or VR, facilitating interactive, collaborative design reviews across any work site. Accelerated Automation with Jacketing and Defeaturing (Unreal Studio): Jacketing automatically identifies meshes and polygons that have a high probability of being hidden from view and lets users hide, remove, or move them to another layer; this command is also available through Python so that Unreal Studio users can integrate this step into automated preparation workflows. Defeaturing automatically removes unnecessary detail (e.g. blind holes, protrusions) from mechanical models to reduce polygon count and boost performance. Enhanced 3ds Max Material Translation (Unreal Studio): There is now support for most commonly used 3ds Max maps, improving visual fidelity and reducing rework. Those in the free Unreal Studio beta can now translate 3ds Max material graphs to Unreal graphs when exporting, making materials easier to understand and work with. Users can also leverage improvements in BRDF matching from V-Ray materials, especially metal and glass. DWG and Alias Wire Import (Unreal Studio): Datasmith now supports DWG and Alias Wire file types, enabling designers to import more 3D data directly from Autodesk AutoCAD and Autodesk Alias.
