In these weekly updates we will bring fresh content to Hive, in the form of our game coding experiences; IBT is a developing PC game - the one to have future Crypto interactions.
Construction of the IBT Original tutorial commences
Here we are again..... This may sound so crazy, but yeah..err yet again we did have another... massive booboo happen - but yeah, this time we managed to fix it quick so don't panick haha...no losing everything and starting from scratch again for us...this time!
I won't go into the details, but yeah another reminder to be careful, have backups on backups and worth case prepare youself heart breaking setbacks...Having dug out of a hole, It's now the right time to really push rebuilding the first round/stage and tutorial for the classic/ Original IBT world. We are well on the way now to finishing the turotial, we have now successfully integrated the IBT character select screen, so once the tutorial is done you can start the game.
Speech system is back!
Need to talk to a NPC?
No problem we have brought back our speech system but a little more updated. Our first speech system basically had a green transparent box with text in it. The joys of this speech system is that you can choose multiple questions or answers
We like to give that open world feel yet you are restricted in some ways. This week has been all about learning how to do panoramic views. Even the trees on the hills will be actual meshes but have what we call a "Cull Distance" to help keep the game FPS up and looking good. Balance visual gameplay is our goal.
That is, it for this update - We are pretty sure we are coming along nicely now, no COVID supply chain issues or anything like that when working in the coding space...it just takes ages and no excuses to hide behind haha..but still good things come to those who wait, see you at the next update.
If your keen to get in on one of our demo's for testing then drop me a line and I'll send you a link for a Discord channel we setup some time ago; where you can get links, ask questions and interact with like minded others if so keen to do so.
Cheers and enjoy our upgoats below, thanks to a @ryivhnn
