Cool, thanks Archie. I'll be sure to check that out next time i'm working with Unity.

Interesting, thanks for the ideas on the camera.

Allowed embedding.

Thanks. I agree, the music needs to be more subtle. For now it's just a place holder though along with all the backgrounds graphics. The only thing I like from this so far is Spike's graphics and animations. Pixel art is so fun. :) The huge learning curve for me is learning C#. On to the tuts. :/

Also, the camera I used that follows the player is a pre built script/ tool. It works great however it distorts the pixel art so I will have to find out how to script my own from scratch.

Thanks for the insight Admer.

As far as i've seen, map geometry for me at least with 2d design is based on simple 2d collider boxes defined by the user that use pre built in physics in the unity engine. It's pretty easy to manipulate and from the small amount of 3d that i've seen, you can use the existing model geometry/ mesh to create colliders for 3d geometry as well.

This sounds great however if my character jumps from high enough above a 2d platform, he goes straight through the geometry. I guess it's kinda buggy.

What haha Archie shit got crazy when that thing left the building.

I launched a Kickstarter and it got succesfully funded in 3 days! Guess everyone's at home on their computers buying stuff.

Here's the link to the Kickstarter if anyone that lives in the US is interested.

@Striker Dont' worry about gym progress, that can all be replaced. Life is too short to worry about short term body progress. You're smater than that! I'm sure this will all come to pass soon. I lknow, it sucks as a used to be gym rat because the progress doesn't come easy. But don't worry. Just because you lose "some" progress. The trainging doesn't yield "nothing". You're body will be stronger naturally.

Good luck finding groceries Urban for you and your family. Potatoes last forever and are cheap. I was able to nab a huge bag along with a few other things.

Thanks Stojke. Hm, those screens of cs_deliverance look cool. I'll have to dl it.

My original intention was to do a modern architectural map in a jungle and then I realized I didn't want to make a bunch of textures for it so I just made a bunker. :lol:

Thanks man, nabbed it from de_airstrip. Strider made the waterfall texture for the competition we entered on gamebanana a while back and I use it in every map I make that includes a waterfall.

I would have gone into further detail with the foliage work but just wanted to slap a map together in a day for the m3 server I play in.

Sorry to hear all the news Ben. I hope y'all figure all this out. Life is already hard enough as it is amidst health issues. I hope Lyssa pulls through it and y'all figure everything out.

I almost took to the graphic design rout before myself but after doing a few free lancing jobs with it, I realized how picky people can be.

I work in the CAD Drafting industry and have for 5+ years now. It's very tough tedious work but I plan on shifting more towards the 3d side of things.

Currently learning Solidworks and Inventor.

I'll let you know how that goes, I know that's something you could easily do.

Thanks. Future models will be built with a button you push to stop the spool but for meanse of simplicity in design I went with basic thumb drag on this model.

Look into cheaper printers. I've seen them go for like 300 bucks and their supposed micron layer resolutions aren't too bad.
Commented 1 year ago2019-03-11 17:47:06 UTC in vault item: knife_mushroom Comment #101887
Thanks. To make the terrain I used a new technique to quickly make it by overlapping different brushes as entities so they wouldn't collide with each other's geometries. And the architecture was made with a technique that uses all triangular shapes to make organic geometry. Glad you had fun on the map. m3 servers have been playing it some and it's a lot of fun with 32 players running around.

Commented 1 year ago2019-03-06 17:55:53 UTC in journal: Mushroom House map, 3D Printed Comment #101861
Yea this 3D printer is my old GMAX by G Create. Its nozzle size is bigger than most 3D printers but when I had my Ultimaker 2+ the micron level you could achieve was much much higher.

Just make sure it has a high micron level comparable to the Ultimaker 2+.

Blender is extremely powerful but for dimensioned models I recommend buying a student license of Rhino 6.0

Don't skimp on your program, and Rhino is cheap and i've used it to develop a small machine product.

Thanks for the feedback. It has 32 slots. I originally didn't make the map for gameplay purposes. I wanted to design a A frame house so decided to make it into a playable map so gameplay wasn't number one. Yea I should have fixed those tree textures but oh well. For the secret, you just have to be quick with it.

Well put together! Pretty cool, especially your slapped together textures. They were pretty neat. Hated the black hole though.

The text at startups naming the levels was awesome!

Few gripes and criticisms I could give but not worth mentioning.

Just noticed you can see into other segments of the map that are no longer playable.

Awesome!

Oh yea, don't forget to set your sv_airaccelerate to around 900 and sv_maxspeed up for the scoutzknivez style or a heavy scoutzknivezer would leave.

Did you use a func_pushable for the gravity? Hope it's not glitchy in server and plays the same as sv_gravity in scoutzknivez. Want me to test it out in my server?

Btw this sounds awesome man, can't wait to play it.

Tornadoes struck near by here in Houston TX and major flooding in the area but I got lucky. Only had to deal with heavy traffic for a week. Tons of people's homes were flooded along the bayous and reservoirs.

Thanks for the advice guys, i've been watching the news on it and it seems like the coast is going to get hit the hardest. There's huge drainage sewers in my apartments parking lot but if I lose my truck i'm only out a few thousand. I'll talk to my family and see what they suggest I do. Going to hit the hardest tonight or saturday morning.

I agree that lumber construction is a complete joke these days but it's economical at least. My apartment has some steel beam construction though.

Sorry for your loss. Glad she made it to that age and with such a horrible disease. I still have my grandpa on my mom's side and my grandma on my dad's. My grandpa isn't doing too good though as his mind is beginning to slip a little. He accidentally drove into Houston Tx all the way from Garwood Tx the other day! My aunt had to drive him home!

Stocked up on groceries for expected power outage for a few days. On the third floor of my apartment so wind might be an issue. We'll see. Got a truck so if water rises in the parking lot i'll drive it onto the curb. Got plenty of beer;), water and food/ mostly fruit and canned stuffs. Time to party!

In big projects there are tons of starts. Those are the hardest parts. Get started before your mind tells you to lay on the couch or something else and then momentum will build. Take it from me, been working on the same damn thing for over a year and finally finished it.

My favorite thing to do is crank down the AC and put on a warm plaid shirt, maybe sip some wine and get to work.

Thanks dude. Yes I did, originally bought a pair of gears but in order for them to fit the other parts I had to 3d print them. So I measured and 3D modeled them and then up scaled them to make them stronger.

Hehe, actually considered making it spin either way for throwing as some potters throw the other way but for me, counter clockwise is perfect. If someone were to produce this wheel they could just add the bar that holds the bike hub mirrored on the other side and then flip the sprocket and chain when they want it to go the other way, but they'd also have to flip the shaft gear I think.

And thanks!
