BGP – Day 21

Stylized Texturing
For our game we our aiming for a ”stylized realism” which means that everything will be semi realistic, with realistic lighting and high detailed textures, but hand painted. And as I have been working on materials, textures are a part of them and I have only used placeholder textures, I was asked to hand paint some textures. To start of I’m not very good when it comes to 2D art, but here is what I came up with on […]

Blendshapes

We recently learned what blendshapes are, or Morpher in 3DS Max, and tried to do something with it to learn if it’s something we want to use in the game, and it is! It’s a really good way to make the objects fade from a good to a bad shape, and it’s really fast too! Because it needs to be the same object you only need to make one, copy it and change it a bit and then put on […]

I should started this sooner than five weeks in to the project but it’s easy to get caught up in the workflow and start forgeting things. anway better late than never i supposed.
So background on this project bfore i go in on what i have been doing. the “Big game proeject” for secondyears is our final assigment. it’s a chance where we get to make any game we want, the only restriction being our own capabilities.
The project i’m woking on […]

BGP #2

I have just moved away from doing the camera, and my intentions now is to take another assignment. My second assignment was to make a HUD. Now this is something that we did not priorities but still something that has great value to us. Because we were 4 programmers it became hard to take assignments that had big difference in the game, I was the one who took all the small stuff around it, making it look good and work […]

What the puppet boy been up to

I am of the understanding that the art-style that I am trying out on our characters in the game has generated a bit of a buzz among my pierce.
So in this post I will shed a bit of light on what I more specifically have been working with.
Come sit with me
Our game is as mentioned a space noir story in 2D with text as a primary mekanic. And with that came a bit of challenges regarding the look of […]

BGP – Day 20

Looking at Height Lerp and More vertex painting
Today I was asked to look into height linear interpolation to see if I could do vertex painting on materials with less vertices, turns out the difference isn’t that big to what I previously posted, but I still got to create a material that is more in line with our Egyptian theme. 
This is how the material looks like now, tomorrow I will see If i can get it to look more stylized, but […]

Week three and four

Hi again!
Since my last post, I have done several things. It was Easter during the third week so we took Friday off to spend time with our families. However, we still managed to do a lot of work. I did some placeholder, modular assets. For example, I made a pillar consisting of six parts, that can be exchanged and moved around to create several different pillars. I also did some arches that can be resized and reused throughout the game.

I […]

BGP 2017 – Week 1

For the first week I worked a bit on implementing the movement of the tools which the players cooperate to use. The first one which I worked on was the stretcher.
The stretcher
The stretcher is used to transport the orcs around the camp. The stretcher has two parts to its movement:

In the front are steering handles, used to orient the front wheels of the stretcher. Once the orientation has been set, the stretcher will rotate in that direction when moved.
In the […]

Fast Gear Blog 1.

Ny kurs och nytt projekt. I kursen ”Big game project” så är planen att vi ska skapa ett ”Story-based racing game” där spelarens val innan racet har en avgörande faktor i hur motståndarna beter sig emot spelaren.  Detta är planen när vi går in i arbete med projektet.
Som programmerare har jag under den första perioden fokuserat på att utveckla motståndarens AI. Detta är med all säkerhet den största och avgörande delen av spelet rent programmeringsmässigt.  Eftersom vi alla programmerare precis avslutat […]

Veckoreflektion V.3-4 Fast Gear

I slutet av förra veckan (V.3 av produktionen) så hade vi ett ”pre-alpha” speltest med de andra eleverna i klassen. Detta gjordes för att få och ge feedback till spelen som har gjorts. Den responsen vi fick var att AI:n var alldeles för svår och att bilkörningen inte kändes ”äkta”. Detta kommer vi att ha i åtanke när vi fortsätter produktionen. Det gavs även respons på att den asymmetriska vyn på kameran hade ett lagg vid övergången till en annan vy.
Under […]

Prototype and Networking

Introduction
In the current course we are to make a ‘vertical slice’ of a game. We are 7 people in my group; 4 are graphical artists, and 3 are programmers. 1 of the artists are is the lead designer, and 1 of the programmers is the producer. The producer has so far not made any of the code, so I and the other programmer have made the code we have produced so far.

BGP – Day 19.1

Vertex Painting and Tessellation
The sun is shining and springs is here, what better than to spend your time sitting inside, learning about materials and tessellation? At least that is what I did. I wanted to look into that, since our Lead Artist asked me if I knew how to use it, I didn’t, but now I do! Also another thing was mentioned when the programmers had their QA with their teacher. The teacher was worried that we wouldn’t get all the […]
