Have caught up to where Quill18Creates is at just now, so went back to my Udemy Unity3D course which has started to show you the basic of networking in games. Here’s the first little build, showing a host server with a single cube followed by the client connecting to the host, then you can move the cube about on the host and it updates the position of the cube on the client as well :_) It all looks very easy in Unity 3D compared to what I thought it was going to be like. Apologies for not showing the mouse moving, just found the option in Bandicam to show that after I’d recorded it.
Okay well I’ve been following the Quill18Creates series of videos on developing a Base Building game in Unity3D. He’s really good at explaining various techniques in writing games. Been doing following the videos on Pathfinding today as well as typing in all the code as he does when I’m watching the videos. Here’s the current state of the project as it is on my laptop just now.
Got a preset few rooms being generated with the test button (top left), then you can queue up walls to be built by the AI character. He now doesn’t just move straight towards the job location going through walls etc. but actually works out a path around all the new walls that you place down.
He explained it all so well, I now understand the principles behind it for future :_)
He used the A* Search Algorithm in this case.
He’s got an excellent base building tutorial series that he’s still recording, but it looks just the sort of thing I want to try my hand at, so I’ll be giving that series a watch.
Did some more of the Unity 3D course last night. The 10 pin bowling game they’re getting you to make is coming along nicely, as can be seen in the little bit of footage I recorded today.
Well after having to take a long hiatus from doing the Unity3D course I started. I went back to it and from the very start again. I’ve finally caught up to where I’d gotten to before, last week, so now starting on the first 3D game on the course. A 10 pin bowling type game. Going well so far :_)
Apologies for the Youtube widget on the right hand side not working. Have tried to get it going without any success so far. It used to work 🙁
Well I went for it and bought a Unity 5 Game Developer course on Udemy. Luckily for me Unity primarily uses C# which I taught myself about 13-15 years ago and have used ever since. Course is pretty good so far. Just doing text based stuff to start with but onto graphics shortly.
Okay that’s Episode 6 of my Let’s Play Dwarf Fortress up on YouTube for your viewing pleasure. Please remember to like and subscribe if possible, it all helps.
Managed to get an episode of my Dwarf Fortress series recorded this afternoon. Just rendering it the moment and then I’ll get it uploaded to YouTube.
