Leadwerks has been accepted into the Sacramento State University Center for Entrepreneurship. The mission of the Center for Entrepreneurship in the College of Business Administration (CBA) is to develop and nurture innovative business ideas and to capitalize potential entrepreneurial opportunities, both from CSUS and local entrepreneurship communities.

 

The Center will provide entrepreneurs with the skills and resources needed to launch a venture and to identify and cultivate solutions to entrepreneurial problems, the network structure to bring the plan to fruition, and the technical training to grow the enterprises.

 

This means Leadwerks now has a physical office right here in California and a vital link to the local technology and business communities as we complete the last leg of Leadwerks3D, our upcoming game development software for iPhone, iPad, Android, Windows, and Mac.

Congrats dude! As someone who also works from home, having a dedicated place to get work done that is as far removed from home life as possible is a God send. It was a huge boon to my productivity, at least while I had it.

 

Currently working on cleaning out and renovating a storage room in my garage, turning it into a dedicated office. It's a fun home improvement project.

 

Are you the only one there, or do you have the guys working on the iOS and Android ports there with you as well?

Aria is kind of off and on when needed, but the Android stuff is done. I'd like to get a couple of students to help write the command declarations in the docs, and whatever else they can do. We'll see.

The students could work on a 32-bit and 64-bit Linux port too. Make sure they work under 64-bit Debian 6.0 Linux environment, so they learn to write cross-CPU code too, and test it under ARM, PowerPC, Intel, Motorola, etc....

I'll get right on that...

@Josh, I've got a better idea. Kick back for a moment, just a moment, and enjoy the fact you have your own office now. Wonderful feeling isn't it? :)

I'm missing some plants on tabel and of course a whip on your tabel to make your furture employees work. :)

 

It seems to be a nice opportunity in US to get into business right from university. I'm missing this a bit here in Germany but also had nice people around for growing ideas.

your mousepad is a little skewed... its messing up the whole obsessive compulsion of aligning everything on your desk that you have going on there... :)

lol @ Mac... :)

 

hey... give him a break... he's just getting set up... i'm sure in a few days the place will be a mess... like a real working office :)

 

congrats in the new digs J...

If it's not a right angle, it's a wrong angle.

Congratulations on finding a closet to stuff yourself in. I'll expect a MASSIVE increase in productivity as a result. :D

      Here are some screenshots showing more complex interface items scaled at different resolutions. First, here is the interface at 100% scaling:

      And here is the same interface at the same screen resolution, with the DPI scaling turned up to 150%:

      The code to control this is sort of complex, and I don't care. GUI resolution independence is a complicated thing, so the goal should be to create a system that does what it is supposed to do reliably, not to make complicated things simpler at the expense of functionality.
      function widget:Draw(x,y,width,height) local scale = self.gui:GetScale() self.primitives[1].size = iVec2(self.size.x, self.size.y - self.tabsize.y * scale) self.primitives[2].size = iVec2(self.size.x, self.size.y - self.tabsize.y * scale) --Tabs local n local tabpos = 0 for n = 1, #self.items do local tw = self:TabWidth(n) * scale if n * 3 > #self.primitives - 2 then self:AddRect(iVec2(tabpos,0), iVec2(tw, self.tabsize.y * scale), self.bordercolor, false, self.itemcornerradius * scale) self:AddRect(iVec2(tabpos+1,1), iVec2(tw, self.tabsize.y * scale) - iVec2(2 * scale,-1 * scale), self.backgroundcolor, false, self.itemcornerradius * scale) self:AddTextRect(self.items[n].text, iVec2(tabpos,0), iVec2(tw, self.tabsize.y*scale), self.textcolor, TEXT_CENTER + TEXT_MIDDLE) end if self:SelectedItem() == n then self.primitives[2 + (n - 1) * 3 + 1].position = iVec2(tabpos, 0) self.primitives[2 + (n - 1) * 3 + 1].size = iVec2(tw, self.tabsize.y * scale) + iVec2(0,2) self.primitives[2 + (n - 1) * 3 + 2].position = iVec2(tabpos + 1, 1) self.primitives[2 + (n - 1) * 3 + 2].color = self.selectedtabcolor self.primitives[2 + (n - 1) * 3 + 2].size = iVec2(tw, self.tabsize.y * scale) - iVec2(2,-1) self.primitives[2 + (n - 1) * 3 + 3].color = self.hoveredtextcolor self.primitives[2 + (n - 1) * 3 + 1].position = iVec2(tabpos,0) self.primitives[2 + (n - 1) * 3 + 2].position = iVec2(tabpos + 1, 1) self.primitives[2 + (n - 1) * 3 + 3].position = iVec2(tabpos,0) else self.primitives[2 + (n - 1) * 3 + 1].size = iVec2(tw, self.tabsize.y * scale) self.primitives[2 + (n - 1) * 3 + 2].color = self.tabcolor self.primitives[2 + (n - 1) * 3 + 2].size = iVec2(tw, self.tabsize.y * scale) - iVec2(2,2) if n == self.hovereditem then self.primitives[2 + (n - 1) * 3 + 3].color = self.hoveredtextcolor else self.primitives[2 + (n - 1) * 3 + 3].color = self.textcolor end self.primitives[2 + (n - 1) * 3 + 1].position = iVec2(tabpos,2) self.primitives[2 + (n - 1) * 3 + 2].position = iVec2(tabpos + 1, 3) self.primitives[2 + (n - 1) * 3 + 3].position = iVec2(tabpos,2) end self.primitives[2 + (n - 1) * 3 + 3].text = self.items[n].text tabpos = tabpos + tw - 2 end end

      The prototype of a four-wheeled vehicle is completed, where the third person player can get on and off the vehicle by pressing the E key.  To move the vehicle either forward or backward, is done with the keys W, and the key S, to brake with the space key.  And the principle is the same as when driving the character, a third person camera goes behind the car orbiting 360 degrees.

      I don't think the vehicle is that bad, but I'm absolutely sure it can be improved.  The idea is that this explorer works with batteries, which eventually run out during the night when there is no sunlight.

      Mechanics of the game.
      I'm going to focus on the mechanics of the game, establish starting point (Landing area), after the orbiter accident on Mars where all your companions died, now, to survive, you will have to repair your suit, oxygen runs out, good luck.  This involves replacing the oxygen condenser that is failing and the suit is stuck.

      On the ground and performance.
      The rocks, the terrain and the vehicle kill the SPF, but there is a solution, and everything is related to the chassis of the vehicle. That is to say that if I put a simple collision bucket for the vehicle, the yield recovers, something that does not happen if I put a collider of precise calculation for the car. This has the advantage of better performance but is not very accurate, especially when the car crashes with an object in front, because the horn of the car has no collision. And the solution to this, is to put a sliding joint, as was done with the area in which the player climbs the car and descends from it.


       
      On the rocks, I am trying to make them with the slightest polygons and the most distant from each other. 
      Obviously on Mars I can not create canyons, high mountains, is because the terrain does not produce shadows on itself, that's why the terrain tries to be as flat as possible, simulating a desert with dunes. 

      That's all for now.

      The prototype is finished, and the mechanics of the game can be given way.  It has established a desert terrain in the form of dunes, this implies that there are no cannons or anything similar, because Leadwerks does not allow a terrain to cast shadows on that same terrain and this looks visually rare.
      So the terrain is like low-slope dunes. On the other hand, I think the texture of the terrain is already the definitive one, with the possibility of changes and suggestions on the part of those involved in this project.
      On the other hand we have taken the model of a habitat of the nasa, which certainly looks very nice. 
      The next steps, are to establish the starting point of the player, this must start near the capsule return to Mars somewhere on the map of 2024 x 2.
      And think about the first thing you should do, repair your suit? Seek a shelter? things like that.
