  1. Swords and Skellies is a reimagined 3D pac-man clone. It is a milestone project so there is quite a bit of work left to be done. However, having something releasable so early in the development process means that critical feedback can be obtained along the way. It also serves to keep motivation up as releasing a playable product is quite a rush. Hopefully it is enjoyable for a few minutes. WASD controls to move. ~ for FPS and Triangles Rendered. ESC for menu. Left mouse button for mouse look. Right mouse button for mouse control. The object of the game is to collect all of the coins while avoiding the skeletons. There are also swords littered throughout the world to defend yourself. No attack command, just catch a skellie while armed. There will be a blog post with more game development details.

  3. Damnit! I have some obnoxius switch-case statement here. Love the elegancy of 1 line of code.
  4. FWIW, I found it easier to use UltimateUnwrap3D to convert from .fbx to .gmf. Buying that program is almost universally held as a good investment on these forums. However, with LW3 so close to release, you might hold off.
  5. TJ, how many man hours does it take you to sculpt something like that? Add rigging? Add animations?
  6. Ha. Yeah, I don't like Codeblock's error messages. I mostly ignore it. At least it tells you what line its on.
  7. Well, its not listed in UU3D's list o file formats and that is the most extensive list I have seen.
  8. Looks good. I would use the wall. Why is the top green?

    I like how this is looking. I can try to comment on the "end user" aspect for you. I am the parent of a 5, 3 and 2 year old. The older two are definitely into learning games, but these are all web based and able to run on a cheap old Intel-Atom based machine. (I haven't actually tried my LE based project on it, yet). This is definitely something my 5 year old would find interesting. He likes games and he likes Math and this is right up his alley. Watching him game, the advice I would have is that you should avoid very difficult twitch based elements. IE pushing rocks around to get 13 is fine, but aiming and firing a crosshairs should be out unless the target is relatively stationary. We hear all the time that TV and video games is harmful for or kids. Not to get on too much of a soap box, but our family's feeling is that is mostly a bunch of hogwash. Yes, 8 hours a day in front of a TV or computer is terrible, but a few hours every other evening is fine. Our kids have learned a great deal. My 5 year old is in Kindergarten and is ready and doing math on a first grade level. My 2 year old can sign his alphabet and knows all the letter sounds. This is just phenomenal and modern media deserves some of the credit by offering engaging learning programs. Also, my kids choose outside over TV still. The recent heat wave (that just broke here in Missouri) killed any outdoor activities.
  10. I've had to do 16 for the last parameter.
  11. A well. House models with accessible interiors. Town Center. All wooden construction including hovels, church, etc. Wood + stone like you have shown.
  12. Can't wait to try it live. I hope I have time to continue working on my game.
  13. Rick said what I was thinking. I've seen community mod projects that have been fantastic (for the curious check out Stainless Steel mod for Medial 2 Total War). But never a community game. I still voted yes, but I think I could learn a lot from participating in such a project.
