The first week is coming to an end and we are being told about the entirety of the course and that includes the practice and real synoptic projects where we are all in groups to develop either a game, VFX piece or an interactive environment.
We have chosen the ‘world of Vert’s’ challenge where we make an entire environment alongside a playable character, we now have a solid Idea alongside a 5-team and boy its turning out to be better than expected.
This basically shows different ways to layout the code so programmers can read it easily and make sense out of it. 1TBS shows the opening brackets connecting to the end of the first line of code which could represent the literal connection whereas Allman separates creates a new line for a new bracketing section… like a quarantine in a way. Keeps everything away.
Doing either bracketing will not affect the workings of the code of what target you apply it to. Ultimately this should show what code is supposed to look like and also show an easier way of bracketing the code. Below is an example of 1TBS bracketing, I wouldn’t expect you to read it all but if you want to, I highly recommend looking at the way the brackets are set in comparison to Allman.
Back to the game in hand, there have been major improvements such as including collectable objects in my game to finally trigger the door, the idea.
Get the Collectables.
Avoid the Enemy.
Get to the goal.
Simple, it’s just… making more levels & having the gameplay flow at an equilibrium alongside an increasing difficulty. Throughout the duration of the game…
Further venturing through the paths of game design and coding my way through the basics of my top down stealth game.
I start by creating my assets first, such as a protagonist ‘main character’, walls, enemy, a backdrop for my game, all I need now is a goal and I can reach further development. I create my assets all on Adobe Photoshop. By using the brush tool and tampering with the brush settings, I can give out better fake lights on the assets giving out a 3 Dimensional look without altering the lighting of the scene nor the renderer.
Beginning my development on Unity, I made the mistake by selecting the game to be a 3D game, I had to therefore change the camera to ‘orthographic’ so of can therefore render the sprite images all together.
To conclude this blog I have also considered having a feature where the player must collect a specific object to therefore pass except the first stage which the player should be able to get to grips with the controls and the environment around him/her.
This piece of code is for a projectiles script which in simpler terms means ‘When shooting each bullet has two seconds until it is dead’, sounds odd… Bullets don’t die, but it does cease to exist after leaving the screen from source within two seconds.
