So...I'm going to be tooling around in Unity to gain some experience working with a devkit for vidya.

What's the best way to go about shoving my dick right into it? What's a good genre of vidya to crappily make a first game in it to familiarize myself with it?
>>
>>260323231

Depends. Do you want to do 2D or 3D?

2D used to be a pile of ass in Unity, and it is still a pile of ass but at least they're trying, so if you want that you should start off with a basic platformer just to get accustomed to how 2D Unity works.

3D is simpler, I'd recommend making yourself a basic FPS, just to get a feel for how Unity handles 3D.

Actually, if you really REALLY want to know my deep dark secret, I really want to make an RTS that takes place in the human body. Antigens vs. Immune system. N-not in Unity, of course...unless that shit's feasable.

That shit is completely feasible in Unity. It's basically the next step up from platformer in many guides for Unity. So long as it's juicy enough, I don't see why it wouldn't work for you.

3d FPS is usually the simplest, go look at some youtube tutorials after playing around with it for half an hour

Good luck with your RTS. Remember, an idea is easy. Its the execution you need to think about

do the tutorials.
But unity is rather bad to learn imo. Too high level, if you are a bad programmer it will give you the false confidence you know your shit.

Whoa...jesus...thanks anons. Sure, I'll give my game a try. It's just that I'm a shit artist and programmer, so I've never been able to get it together. I've got a workable design doc and everything, but have no hands-on demo to show for it.

Suffering.

But this is my first step to making it something on paper to reality. If it becomes something, I'll make sure you faggots are the first to know.
>>
Are you a programmer or an artist? Both?
Making an RTS is feasible in Unity, there are some already existing open-source projects for that.
If coding is not your strong side, check UE4 and their Blueprint system.
>>
>>260324726
Do we have soft body physics in unity yet?
If so, definitely think about those
>>
>>260323231
If you really just want to shove your dick into it

Make a few levels of a linear platformer using the stock assets.
There's a pre-animated dude who runs and jumps.
You can use basic shapes for the platforms and walls and shit.
There are textures literally everywhere on the internet.

It'll teach you the basics right quickly, and it's a good way to brainstorm level designs.
>>
>>260324959
Not that it's a major feature, but I even have two "campaigns" written; one for the Immune System and one for the antigens. The antigens campaign takes place in a slovenly guy who neglects his health and eventually dies at the campaign's conclusion. The Immune System's campaign takes place in a pregnant woman, and the climax is at the placental barrier keeping antigens from getting to the babby.

You like that? Well...how about this?

I've been toying with the idea of giving each side "powers" they can use. Something akin to Superweapons, but more as a buff/debuff kind of thing instead of direct damage.

For example, Immune system gets "Fever" which in the active area increases their unit movement speed, damages enemy units, and will eventually damage friendly units if they're in the area for too long.

Well, when you release your first pictures and demo make sure you reiterate that so if you do end up going the way of the sellout we at least have some proof to throw at you.
>>
Are you experienced with programming, OP? You don't need to be a pro to use unity, but it doesn't really shine unless you know how add or improve features that don't otherwise exist. Unity is a great foundation for a game, but a lot of the basic components are shit as is, and you'll need to know how to repurpose them for your own needs.

You should spend time learning the shader system and the editor scripting. you can actually make features that exist in the pro version yourself, and it's not hard. You'll also end up making yourself tools that really help your productivity.

Finalyl, if you have any CS background when it comes to programming philosophy, discard it. Unity has its own approach to design based on components and serialization. It's a weird hybrid of approaches that makes debugging and releasing versions incredibly simple and efficient, but it takes studying and time to learn a new workflow. I found this part the hardest hump to get over when I started working with unity.

Most idea men do have a fully fleshed out document, and even if you dont, having nothing more than an idea, with or without a design doc, you're still an idea man.

My biggest butt pain about this tyfc thing is that /v/ has the potential to make enjoyable video but people would rather throw it at some 3rd party gender orientated company to prove a point about how progressive they can be compared to the quinnening than actually work as a group to make all these gems /v/ has thought up.
>>
>>260330581
That's because whenever /v/ has worked as a group, it became a total shitshow.
>>
>>260330581
I guess one of the big issues with /v/ made games is that a lot of people on /v/ has no experience of making games, and therefore, even more than the idea guy problem, their ideas arent even very good. The reason for this is because they cant code, or make art, they have no idea what is feasible, so the demands are often far too high, especially for a small development team.

I had a /v/ game in the works, I even had a working prototype. But very quickly, /v/ got bored of the updates, it became a waste of time, and I quit it.

Not OP, but I figure this might be relevant to him too:

I'm also about to start tooling around with Unity (for 3D), and I was trying to find some beginner resources. Everything I come up with seems to be slightly more advanced stuff, when I'm not even familiar with the UI or terminology. For some background, I'm mainly a programmer (C++, so I figure adapting to C# for Unity wont be a problem), and have some passable artistic talent (nothing to write home about, but it wouldn't look like shit). I have some experience with gamedev, but I've never worked with any kind of 3D.

Basically, I'm trying to find the most basic information out there. Anybody got anything?
>>
>>260333984
just follow some basic FPS tutorials, that'll do the trick. After that, look at Quill18Creates, he's fantastic for tutorials (mainly because he has some enthusiasm and doesnt have the voice of a 13 year old), and it takes you through some more interesting themes and ideas. When I was learning, I tried to follow at least 1 a day

Fantastic. Thank you. Once I get started with this stuff I usually get pretty enthused and start digging in, but I couldn't find any place to begin, so I got overwhelmed.

The only thing I'm really concerned about is modeling. I'm a sucker for low poly art, so I wanna try to get decent at it. One thing at a time, though, I guess.

>>260335320
cplusplus.com is a good general site for reference, but not for learning. I learned the basics from a textbook (Starting out with C++: Early Objects, you can pirate the ebook easily), and then just kinda went off online learning other shit. I'd recommend a book over a site because it'll encourage you to code your own stuff more often, but that might not be the best course for you. I've seen this site recommended before http://learncodethehardway.org/, but I haven't checked it out. That's my personal experience, so be sure to ask around. I think the gamedev general on /vg/ has some more/better info.

I once wanted to make a 2D mmo. The classes:

Necromancer: if you kill guys on pk/pvp you can actually use their shades, that are actually semi a.i versions of the player characters you defeated. You'd have to fuel them with souls you capture and their post mortem functionality, their level and the quantity you can have summoned would depend on your levels.


Beast tamer: actually like pokemens, so you would need to track and capture mvps for diverse situations and all. They may evolve and you can capture some bosses.

Engineer: you can make robots with parts you collect. Kinda like the beast tamer, but you have to put dedication building your mech.

Warrior: possibilities to learn various martial arts or magic, so you could be like a fist-wizard.


And so on and on, but i have no money, and no time.
