My first task was to create a "metadata" system for characters. Basically it lets me read and write values with names assigned to each value, and all metadata saves and loads with the character. This is so quest scripts could read and write dynamic character data on the fly,...

I spent the past few days tying together important features. First thing I did was make items compatible with my serialization shit, then fleshed out my character's serialization. Now characters are saved along with every item across all inventories all in one little file. ...

SabreCSG added support for importing UnrealGold & VMF files https://github.com/sabresaurus/SabreCSG/tree/master/Scripts/Importers Prototype in Hammer (or Sledge Editor), touch up and finalize in Unity/Blender/etc. That should be pretty nice @Henry00 nice work!
Not trying to spam threads, so I'm gonna keep my shit in here for now. I refactored my inventory system a bit to support moving items between inventories, and added a potion belt. I also created a popup label utility to easily show screen space elements on the fly. I integr...
I dropped in my old simple physics engine for this instead. each label implements ICollisionBody, and ICollisionBody can be added to a physics world instance which gets simulated and raises events when collision bodies collide with each other. https://streamable.com/25dn7 ...
Not quite, there's nothing for walkable slopes either. Walking up a slope slows movement down, walking down a slope causes it to bounce. Normally you'd sweep test down to figure out where the ground is, and snap the player's Y to the hit position, then it would work just fi...
There's no logic for stairs. It's just air acceleration, surf, and simple collision checking

People are going to bypass code, then bypass blueprints (bolt?), then spend all their time learning how to use these kits and imported assets.
Never played a trapper before, I think I'm just gonna fuckin wing it. Should be fun. How is the leveling/questing for trappers, can they keep up?

https://github.com/Chabinka/Fragsurf-Character-Controller A few users were interested in having their own surf in Unity so I thought I'd share. SurfPhysics.cs contains functions ported from the hl2 source. SurfController.cs simply puts those functions to use, taking in s...
Surf Character Controller for Unity
I got it set up and imported a simple map, pretty swift process. I'll be playing with it some more eventually, but I already look forward to prototyping some stuff with it, creating levels in Unity is a pain.
Added an XML ui framework. PowerUI is just too much. I think I'm going to leave it in for now, but it's just a clusterfuck of a project and often acts in unexpected ways. This XML framework is pretty lightweight, it parses XML and converts elements into Unity UI objects. I...

Python is nice, but for my personal project I don't really want to set up all these modules and maintain a proper "pythonic" environment for modders. If I'm modding somebody elses game where the Python shit is all set up nicely, I'll be happy to use it. Never really used Jav...
Cool, I look forward to playing around with it
That's really cool. I'm not familiar with TrenchBroom or Quake, are textures/materials/models etc compiled into the maps? Also curious if it's possible to whip up my own game configuration for entity definitions and whatnot, that'd be pretty slick
I'd maybe use this for my game Keep us updated
Photon seems like a good scalable solution that provides a lot of tools out of the box to get shit done. Forge Networking has looked promising for a while, with decent ingeration into the editor. Some other choices, if you're not interested in high level stuff: https://githu...
Yea, peeker's advantage and getting hit behind walls seem to be big problems here. If they smooth it out a bit I'm probably willing to live with it. I kinda like the fact that two people can kill eachother at the same time, a little quirk of their hitreg system I guess
I might port over my scripting thing just for the hell of it
Server plugins and performance
From what I saw there's quite a bit of customization, and a good number of guns. Guns can be individually customized too
What have they done wrong? This is my first time playing anything by them.
https://ironsight.aeriagames.com/ I was a bit skeptical, but I played a little and it's solid. Really good performance, plays smooth, and overall well polished. The netcode is unique. Hitreg is processed in realtime, the only delay is your ping. So when a client fires a b...
Ironsight - new F2P, non P2W CoD like shooter
The art looks good. It's really busy though, maybe reduce the motion of the platform and sun? Also thought it'd be cool if you had a sort of day/night cycle going on there
sluice is good, didn't like the surf on runewords much. nmb is just gay
Combat surf or skill surf. My favorite combat map is surf_buck-wild, skill surf is maybe surf_nostromo
Favorite surf map?
hehe maybe I was inspired by both games And that's cool, I thought my posts might be a little bit helpful in ways, but wasn't really sure
Looks cool, any updates?
I've done a few multiplayer playtests, but previous ones were kinda buggy and shitty. Today though, it's running pretty solid. A few issues here and there, but nothing game-breaking. I'm almost confident enough to release a download and start soaking up feedback & bug reports....

I love the concept of being trapped inside this sort of deathly construct.
I agree, I'd like to see it stay relatively simple.
I'd like to try some War
That's a good idea
what you think? Playing solo was fun, but squads is definitely unbalanced. You can drop in some shit area and guarantee nobody gets any real loot, or you can drop where there's loot and guarantee at least one of your squad is going to die. Duos might be perfect though

Ah, there should be a really easy and fast way to flag individual points on the grid without recalculating the entire thing. It's possible the plugin's threading will only be utilized for processing paths, since graphs are generally calculated once then tweaked during gameplay.
I never played Shining Force, but this looks like a cool project. I like the dialog system Your grid is really low res, threaded pathfinding shouldn't be needed anyways
I bought this watch strictly for use in my dirty, gritty oil field work back in the day. https://www.amazon.com/Bulova-98D109-Diamond-Accented-Black-Stainless/dp/B0021AEDSM It's a little scuffed, maybe it can be polished or something. edit: https://files.facepunch.com/for...

I've been a bit short-sighted lately, being so caught up in programming and shooting for dumb goals. Whenever I get like this I feel like I'm moving 100 miles per hour, most days fly by and everything else tends to get neglected. Fragsurf is coming along nicely, but it's bee...

I like the gore. And the windows look nice, adds a bit of character
SabreCSG now has the feature I was after, gonna toy around with it and see what it's all about edit: ehh, tons of errors and controls aren't exactly intuitive. I might just use blender curves for making ramps, fuck this old fashion shit
I do too. When a player gets killed I want his full surfing velocity to apply to ragdolls so we can see lifeless bodies smashing against walls and floors edit: I did add a very basic ragdoll system already for capsules: https://streamable.com/m83z5 edit2: better ragdolls: ...
Ah, pretty solid library. Unity's navmesh/pathfinding is good, but its built-in movement is really shit. I touched it once a long time ago, never again.

Awesome, I feel exactly the same & I suppose that's why I'm creating it. If you have any ideas for maps or guns or anything related to gameplay I'd like to hear it, game design isn't really my focus and I kinda want to put it into the hands of the combat surf community. You s...

Client prediction & reconciliation is in. I was relying on Unity's rigidbody for collision resolving before, but you can't simulate a single physics object without simulating everything else. So now I just resolve manually during each movement step, which makes it very easy ...
My plan is to create the core gameplay, then add modding support which should allow for any gamemode. Initial plan is to have round based 1v1/2v2/3v3, and also a deathmatch mode
