Janek Rahrt
@janek26
Feb 22 2016 08:37

:)
kubinator4321
@kubinator4321
Feb 22 2016 08:51
So, any other info about the group?
Is the group dedicated to a single game project that is defined, or are you just assembling it for the near future?
And if there is a specific game we'll be making, what is it gonna be?
Janek Rahrt
@janek26
Feb 22 2016 08:54
We plan to work all together on one project, our next step is to determine a game idea/concept, then we gonna start the project,
you can post your own ideas here
kubinator4321
@kubinator4321
Feb 22 2016 08:57
hmm
The website freaks out if I scroll near the bottom
Janek Rahrt
@janek26
Feb 22 2016 08:57
you can also read our ideas for the project ;)
yeah im editing privilegs right now, sry
should be fine now
kubinator4321
@kubinator4321
Feb 22 2016 09:00
The decision to set the default language to be English (Pirate) is... interesting?
Janek Rahrt
@janek26
Feb 22 2016 09:01
haha should I change?
I thought it is ok for everyone, we are a fun project, so dont see this as work, see it as a hobby
kubinator4321
@kubinator4321
Feb 22 2016 09:04
Doesn't bother me, changed it for myself xD
kubinator4321
@kubinator4321
Feb 22 2016 09:45
BTW, do you guys know Inigo Quilez?
Janek Rahrt
@janek26
Feb 22 2016 09:46

kubinator4321
@kubinator4321
Feb 22 2016 09:47
nope
Janek Rahrt
@janek26
Feb 22 2016 09:47
explain then
kubinator4321
@kubinator4321
Feb 22 2016 09:47
He has a website with interesting articles, mainly on 3D rendering
Also, if you ever heard of ShaderToy, he made that thing
Janek Rahrt
@janek26
Feb 22 2016 09:58
ahh ok :)
kubinator4321
@kubinator4321
Feb 22 2016 10:02
Assuming we do any work with pixel shaders, some articles will probably be useful :P
Janek Rahrt
@janek26
Feb 22 2016 10:04
nice to knwo
JesseWalsh
@JesseWalsh
Feb 22 2016 12:31
Just a heads up though unity doesn't use
Glsl shaders
kubinator4321
@kubinator4321
Feb 22 2016 12:38
HLSL is very similar to GLSL :P
Also, this page says otherwise:
Janek Rahrt
@janek26
Feb 22 2016 12:41
pls everybody try to look regular to the forum and unreaden topics
@JesseWalsh :P
kubinator4321
@kubinator4321
Feb 22 2016 12:47
done
BTW, I've got to test the GPU smoke rendering in the next beta of blender. I guess this day isn't gonna be very productive.
JesseWalsh
@JesseWalsh
Feb 22 2016 12:53
@janek26 ? There is nothing on the forum. You posted your idea in 2 places kube and I have responded to those and there are some introductions that's pretty much it
Unless I am missing something
Janek Rahrt
@janek26
Feb 22 2016 12:58
Ouh no, but system says you were not online about three days
JesseWalsh
@JesseWalsh
Feb 22 2016 12:59
Hmm weird
Janek Rahrt
@janek26
Feb 22 2016 12:59
sry then
JesseWalsh
@JesseWalsh
Feb 22 2016 12:59
I've checked it lots and have no undiscovered posts
123p10
@123p10
Feb 22 2016 13:00
having trouble posting so can someone post this link on the forum its a basic movement test it uses smooth follow and basic C# movement system cause I GTG
kubinator4321
@kubinator4321
Feb 22 2016 13:01
I editted the post with further information, @janek26
@123p10, was this made by you?
123p10
@123p10
Feb 22 2016 13:03
yes
but smooth follow is a unity standard assets script
kubinator4321
@kubinator4321
Feb 22 2016 13:03
Oh, alright
Don't you think it'd be a slightly better idea to share the project/sources? :D
azureguy
@azureguy
Feb 22 2016 13:09

Please forgive us, we have yet to establish a perfect workflow with the shared assets and whatnot.

We did grouped together only a few days ago, after all. But we're getting there!

Good day kubinator, btw!
kubinator4321
@kubinator4321
Feb 22 2016 13:17
Good day, azure! I was only talking about the files 123p10 posted, as posting the project or even just the source code can be much more useful for other devs than compiled executables.
azureguy
@azureguy
Feb 22 2016 13:17
I see
Janek Rahrt
@janek26
Feb 22 2016 14:21
cause we work all together and not against each other, we dont have to talk behind anybodys back, so @123p10 is that your twitter profile? https://twitter.com/owen_brake
123p10
@123p10
Feb 22 2016 14:49
No
Not at all I can prove it if u want
@kubinator4321 will post source after class i just did this morning
Janek Rahrt
@janek26
Feb 22 2016 14:50
no offensive, but can u share your age?
123p10
@123p10
Feb 22 2016 14:52
Ok oi am 15 but thats not my twitter
Also that acoount was last active 3 years ago if you check the account linked with my user its not that one
Janek Rahrt
@janek26
Feb 22 2016 15:22
your age is no problem i think, if you are helpfull for us we will be helpfull for you
123p10
@123p10
Feb 22 2016 15:58
And btw @janek26 is there a secret secret channel????
Janek Rahrt
@janek26
Feb 22 2016 15:59
:D :D :D no it's not, no fear
123p10
@123p10
Feb 22 2016 16:03
ALSO
Mistype
Also for the source should i use drive or the github repo that is setup?
Janek Rahrt
@janek26
Feb 22 2016 16:04
github, or you can even zip an drag and drop in composer
123p10
@123p10
Feb 22 2016 16:06
Composer???? N3ver heard of it
kubinator4321
@kubinator4321
Feb 22 2016 16:18
@janek26 composer? You mean the chat, thread creator, or what?
Janek Rahrt
@janek26
Feb 22 2016 16:20
when you create a thread, left called composer, right is preview
kubinator4321
@kubinator4321
Feb 22 2016 16:20
Also, do we even know what style the game is going to be? As in, futuristic, medieval, etc?
JesseWalsh
@JesseWalsh
Feb 22 2016 16:49
yeah not sure
tonight is one of the nights I usually have free time to work on something like this
I wish we even had a theme or setting
so I can crank out some concepts
as it is I dont have anything to work on
Janek Rahrt
@janek26
Feb 22 2016 17:02
i
suggest a setting i think
JesseWalsh
@JesseWalsh
Feb 22 2016 18:42
I like far future post apocalyptic. Like 5,000 years after the apocalypse. Very few human villages remain. Maybe a different species is at the top of the food chain. Nature has taken over. You are on a quest to find some artifact from the before times.
Perhaps bugs have grown giant like in Nausicaa and the Valley of The Wind
Janek Rahrt
@janek26
Feb 22 2016 18:43
i like the idea of a new species at the top of the food chain
so we would also have a theme for our creatures
JesseWalsh
@JesseWalsh
Feb 22 2016 18:44
yeah could be new dinosaurs
Bugs are fun too
Maybe the character comes from a valley or some such place that is isolated and protected from the dangers of the outside world
Janek Rahrt
@janek26
Feb 22 2016 18:45
i think bugs are not optimal because of there uniform body
JesseWalsh
@JesseWalsh
Feb 22 2016 18:46
But think of those faceted eyes
Janek Rahrt
@janek26
Feb 22 2016 18:46
yeah, i would even say every bigger city is protected, maybe sometime the new species tries to take over
JesseWalsh
@JesseWalsh
Feb 22 2016 18:48
Maybe the McGuffin is some sort of weapon or energy source that would turn the tide in humanity's favor
Janek Rahrt
@janek26
Feb 22 2016 18:48
mcguffin?
JesseWalsh
@JesseWalsh
Feb 22 2016 18:49
the thing hero seeks to drive story forward
Like arc in raiders of the lost arc
Janek Rahrt
@janek26
Feb 22 2016 18:49
ahh ok
your just survive, if the world is open :D
JesseWalsh
@JesseWalsh
Feb 22 2016 18:50
Idk needs driving force
Survival seems best with lots of other real players in game
Janek Rahrt
@janek26
Feb 22 2016 18:51
the story is not interesting yet i think, the setting is importanter
JesseWalsh
@JesseWalsh
Feb 22 2016 18:51
Otherwise why risk yourself fighting monsters
Janek Rahrt
@janek26
Feb 22 2016 18:51
yep, or npc-creatures
loot xp common stuff :D
JesseWalsh
@JesseWalsh
Feb 22 2016 18:51
But why progress?
I mean the loot and xp is the game
The game loop
Janek Rahrt
@janek26
Feb 22 2016 18:52
yeah youre right, i think other players are the biggest motivation
JesseWalsh
@JesseWalsh
Feb 22 2016 18:52
But we should start single player due to scale
Janek Rahrt
@janek26
Feb 22 2016 18:53
or catching monsters from the new species, to come back to this pokemon aspect
ofc
JesseWalsh
@JesseWalsh
Feb 22 2016 18:53
Yeah I guess that is more of a mechanic
I am trying to think about the why not the what
Janek Rahrt
@janek26
Feb 22 2016 18:53
and a motivation too, i think
JesseWalsh
@JesseWalsh
Feb 22 2016 18:54
Well in Pokemon you are trying to be the best gym leader guy
They don't just say "go catch monsters"
They tell you why you want to
Janek Rahrt
@janek26
Feb 22 2016 18:55
in our game you try to survive, maybe the monsters get intelligenter with time
JesseWalsh
@JesseWalsh
Feb 22 2016 18:55
Why does our player want to leave the relative safety of the starting area/village and risk his life in harder areas
Janek Rahrt
@janek26
Feb 22 2016 18:55
/stronger
JesseWalsh
@JesseWalsh
Feb 22 2016 18:55
Tru
Is it permadeath
Janek Rahrt
@janek26
Feb 22 2016 18:55
maybe a "timer" when located too long in one place the monsters try to attack ths place
JesseWalsh
@JesseWalsh
Feb 22 2016 18:56
Oh like there is a curse on the player
Janek Rahrt
@janek26
Feb 22 2016 18:56
not good?
JesseWalsh
@JesseWalsh
Feb 22 2016 18:56
Pretty good
What is win condition
Janek Rahrt
@janek26
Feb 22 2016 18:56
he could be the "choosen"
but we have to call it another way
JesseWalsh
@JesseWalsh
Feb 22 2016 18:57
Or he could be "cast out" due to being monster magnet
Janek Rahrt
@janek26
Feb 22 2016 18:57
win could be to free someone/something or to destroy the monsters, or to flee
flee to space, whatever
JesseWalsh
@JesseWalsh
Feb 22 2016 18:58
The mcguffib
mcguffin :)
Janek Rahrt
@janek26
Feb 22 2016 18:58
ahh ok i understand
yeah, kind of :)
JesseWalsh
@JesseWalsh
Feb 22 2016 18:58
Destroy the monsters is to general
Janek Rahrt
@janek26
Feb 22 2016 18:58
i like our scene
JesseWalsh
@JesseWalsh
Feb 22 2016 18:58
Flee to space is interesting
Like maybe there is a legend of a city far away that is space faring
Janek Rahrt
@janek26
Feb 22 2016 18:59
in a open world we can reuse much to collect parts u need for your ship
or a space station for rich people
and intelligents
JesseWalsh
@JesseWalsh
Feb 22 2016 19:01
Maybe the first dungeon you find and clear is an ancient base
And you need to rebuild the communications tech
Janek Rahrt
@janek26
Feb 22 2016 19:01
yeah, great
and a open world around it, would be awesome
JesseWalsh
@JesseWalsh
Feb 22 2016 19:02
So you have to find other dungeons to gather that tech
Yeah
Janek Rahrt
@janek26
Feb 22 2016 19:02
like it
JesseWalsh
@JesseWalsh
Feb 22 2016 19:02
Cool
Janek Rahrt
@janek26
Feb 22 2016 19:02
we should write it down
JesseWalsh
@JesseWalsh
Feb 22 2016 19:06
Why do these bug dinosaurs have loot though?
Janek Rahrt
@janek26
Feb 22 2016 19:06
we have already 2000 site views, from unique visitors O.o
i would even say no
maybe you can let eat your monsters from beated ones, so they heath up a bit
health
1000 in the pasted 24hrs, wtf
JesseWalsh
@JesseWalsh
Feb 22 2016 19:11
from where?
Janek Rahrt
@janek26
Feb 22 2016 19:11
forums, google everywhere
we seems to be interesting :D
JesseWalsh
@JesseWalsh
Feb 22 2016 19:13
hits to where the forum?
or here?
Janek Rahrt
@janek26
Feb 22 2016 19:14
forum
JesseWalsh
@JesseWalsh
Feb 22 2016 19:14
cool
lets get a demo together
and start a patreon :)
Janek Rahrt
@janek26
Feb 22 2016 19:15
jep
we only got 3 keyword in google: lowpoly survival and game
JesseWalsh
@JesseWalsh
Feb 22 2016 19:15
hah
Janek Rahrt
@janek26
Feb 22 2016 19:15
2000 visitors is not so bad then
in 72h
JesseWalsh
@JesseWalsh
Feb 22 2016 19:16
i will start some look and feel art tonight when i am off work
and think about names
Janek Rahrt
@janek26
Feb 22 2016 19:18
i'll improve my blender skills further, think unity isnot the problem :D
JesseWalsh
@JesseWalsh
Feb 22 2016 19:20
well
who all is going to be coding?
Janek Rahrt
@janek26
Feb 22 2016 19:22
i can
:D
but we got enough coder i think
i could teach coding as well
JesseWalsh
@JesseWalsh
Feb 22 2016 19:27
it seems like just you and 123p10
Janek Rahrt
@janek26
Feb 22 2016 19:30
then its alright :) I 'll recrude the guy from the forum then and teach him in teamspeak
JesseWalsh
@JesseWalsh
Feb 22 2016 19:30
well
to get started
I can probably handle all the art for a demo
Janek Rahrt
@janek26
Feb 22 2016 19:30
?
JesseWalsh
@JesseWalsh
Feb 22 2016 19:31
unless we could find someone good at animations
and familiar with bringing animations into unity
(it is a pain imo)
Janek Rahrt
@janek26
Feb 22 2016 19:31
i could setup scene as well, or do you make it in your programm?
JesseWalsh
@JesseWalsh
Feb 22 2016 19:32
I will make indivudial assets in Max and then import them into Unity
shit
we need to lock in on a version of unity
Janek Rahrt
@janek26
Feb 22 2016 19:32
i did rigging and animation in unity a while ago and animated my deer as well
JesseWalsh
@JesseWalsh
Feb 22 2016 19:32
and use ONLY that one
Janek Rahrt
@janek26
Feb 22 2016 19:32
why we have to?
JesseWalsh
@JesseWalsh
Feb 22 2016 19:33
things get funky if everyone is using different versions of unity
trust me on this one
like we should all upgrade to the newest version now
Janek Rahrt
@janek26
Feb 22 2016 19:33
ehm ok, i did
JesseWalsh
@JesseWalsh
Feb 22 2016 19:34
5.3.2?
Janek Rahrt
@janek26
Feb 22 2016 19:34
5.3.2f1
JesseWalsh
@JesseWalsh
Feb 22 2016 19:34
ok
once we start we shouldnt upgrade
Janek Rahrt
@janek26
Feb 22 2016 19:34
we can try later in the project, if interessting features join unity
JesseWalsh
@JesseWalsh
Feb 22 2016 19:34
yeah
but
i once worked on a project that switched from 3 to 4
midway
Janek Rahrt
@janek26
Feb 22 2016 19:35
so which version controll/managment?
JesseWalsh
@JesseWalsh
Feb 22 2016 19:35
and it was a nightmare
Janek Rahrt
@janek26
Feb 22 2016 19:35
git?
JesseWalsh
@JesseWalsh
Feb 22 2016 19:35
not my area of expertise
i currently use bitbucket and sourcetree
Janek Rahrt
@janek26
Feb 22 2016 19:35
ok i dont think that v6 is in range
JesseWalsh
@JesseWalsh
Feb 22 2016 19:35
which ithink is git
Janek Rahrt
@janek26
Feb 22 2016 19:36
yep
JesseWalsh
@JesseWalsh
Feb 22 2016 19:36
i am also saying dont upgrade to 5.3.3 once we start
it will cause problems
Janek Rahrt
@janek26
Feb 22 2016 19:36
yeah we can do first, maybe imigrate later
for everyone searching for a git client, use githubs or gitkraken
123p10
@123p10
Feb 22 2016 20:19
@JesseWalsh I have latest version so we should not update from there
@janek26 we could use github but github requires paid subscription for private repos also animation is my poison so you may have to do that
Just puttin finishing touches on scripts then releasing movement test pleaseprovide feedback and fixes
Janek Rahrt
@janek26
Feb 22 2016 20:41
i subed github and have 5 private repos
123p10
@123p10
Feb 22 2016 20:41
oh k
Janek Rahrt
@janek26
Feb 22 2016 20:41
i also invited you to one private repo, where u can upload
123p10
@123p10
Feb 22 2016 20:48
posted
ya IK
JesseWalsh
@JesseWalsh
Feb 22 2016 20:52
oooh
this has a nice look
123p10
@123p10
Feb 22 2016 20:52
wow
that is like ideal low poly
JesseWalsh
@JesseWalsh
Feb 22 2016 20:55
well
its a mix
123p10
@123p10
Feb 22 2016 20:56
yeah it kinda looks more realistic
JesseWalsh
@JesseWalsh
Feb 22 2016 21:12
that water looks highpoly
looks goo dhtough
