How to make a video game

3d-model-robot

Making your own video game isn’t as hard as you might think and really is quite fun.

If you want to make your very own 3d game what you will need is something called a game engine… It is in the game engine that lets you put together all the different game components from the scenery, characters and ai and even audio of the game. Their are plenty of game engines that can be downloaded for free and there are many other game engines that are used for commercial purposes and can cost quite a bit of money.

UNITY 3D IS FREE

Some say that to create a totally unique game you need to code a totally unique game engine.. but I don’t think this is the case take unity for example the unity game engine is used to create a whole range of different games from mobile 2d puzzle games to 3d massively multiplayer online games. You may not need to code a whole new game engine yourself but if you want a game with unique features only found in your game then you will need to find away to code it into your game but don ‘t worry most game engines allow you to create these adjustments with a coding language such as C+

Even if you do not have any programming knowledge it is still possible for you to create your own 2d or 3d game… most game engines will be packed with test games and templates and all you have to do is fill your game with custom content like 3d models… your game features mayn’t be unique but if you are creative you can still make a original and fun game using the templates.

3d modelling is easy

3d modelling is needed to make the game models in your game.. without it you game would be pretty empty and boring.

3d modelling isn’t as hard as you may think… 3d modelling is done in 3d modelling software such as Autodesk maya(expensive) and Blender 3d(FREE).. You can create highly detailed and great characters for your games using these 3d applications.. a good thing to try is using image planes with references of what you want to model on them to help you get the right proportions when you create your model. It is best if you are modelling for games to makes sure that your 3d models are lowpoly… so you don’t slow down the game. For movies often the models will be much much higher in polys than for 3d games but this is because games are played in real time and need to be fast whereas in movie animations the scenes are usually rendered for a couple of hours.

What’s next… textures

Textures are important when creating models because they are like the skins of your models and to help keep your game from being slow often texture will have bump maps (created by making a high detailed model and then exporting as a bump map texture in 3d sculpting programs like mudbox) in them which will react with in game light creating shadows and bumps without effecting your low poly model.. this creates detail but doesn’t slow down your game.

Rigging and animating

Animation is important for character models and even just normal models.. animation helps to give them life.

If you are creating a 3d character you will need animation to make the character alive. This is done with rigging and animating.. you must rig a “skeleton!” which is basically.. a skeleton that helps you move the body parts around… assigning vertices to the different bone parts. After you have done rigging the character you must then animate it.. using frames.. frames are important as they help structure your animation and help later with ai.

Ai

Once you have finally finished modelled, created the texture and have rigged and animated your character the next thing you must do is add it it too you game and create some AI for it. Ai tells the game character what to do and assigns the animations to the actions in the game. Ai can be quite difficult.. some devs will use existent AI from other characters as a template instead of rewriting AI all over again…
Without Ai your character would move.. wouldn’t die when shot and wouldn’t attack you…

Levels of a game

Creating a game level can be as complex or as simple as you want… Think of creating your game level like setting up a movie scene… most of the more simpler game engines will work with drag and drop functionality where you simply drag your model onto the scene and position it where you want… Some 3d game engines will have a inbuilt terrain editor where you create a simple terrain plain.. and with brushes you are able to sculpt mounts and craters into the terrain… with other brushes to allow you to paint grass and other textures onto your terrain.. even 3d trees and foliage can be added as well if you want.

Levels of the game in Unity 3d levels are saved as scenes, you can create different levels and save them.. using portals to get from one level to the next… or you can choose to just create one big level and have a sandbox game it is totally up to you..its your game.

Building your game

Some game engines are quite simple when you have finished making your game the game engine will simply compile your game altogether and export it as a playable version which you can distribute to your friends.. others are a little bit more difficult. With untiy3d you get to decide whether you want to build your game as a mobile game, a online game.. a desktop game or something else.

-Anyway I hope I have covered all the basics of game development, I have tried to keep this quick guide simple to understand and concise if you have any more question please comment below and I will be happy to answer you questions or problems.

Just installed the new wordpress

So I just installed the new WordPress finally and I cant tell the difference. I was expecting for version 4 there to be tons of new cool features… but once again I am disappointed just like I was  when version 3 came out. I keep on thinking that they are going to change wordpress to be more front end and turn wordpress into something like drupal.. but that day never happens and I guess at the end of the day wordpress is simply a blog platform and there really isn’t much else to a blog fundamentally.

If you do have a look at the wordpress list of things they have added and changed in the new version you will see that most of the changes are most back end and security things… boring but I guess security features are very important and stops your site from being hacked by the usual ugg boot spammers.

 

Ps,  I wish that drupal was more popular and had more themes and customization to it else I would be using that.. they don’t seem to update druapl very often which makes me a little scared about using it too… security and all.

Annoyed…

I’m so angry at the moment! I bought 2 different domains on godaddy to start to different new fresh blogs.. I got going on them and started blogging away and all of a sudden on both of them I start getting abuse in the comments by petty people saying that I have stolen the original blog owners site. What?! I did some research and there both the blogs were owned before I used them… but the amount of garbage these people who are commenting are leaving are leaving just shows how petty and stupid some people are!

I did some digging and it turns out both domains were previously owned by two liberal women and thus had a very liberal way of blogging and a very liberal following.. I HATE THE LIBERALS I ALWAYS HAVE AND ALWAYS WILL (THEY ARE EVIL)!

Both domains I bought were not cheap… but apprently I am a sick person for buying them despite the fact they were in auction and if I buy them some chinease spammer would have… anyway. But they are just domains MY DOMAINS now. But for one of the domains the previous owner commented saying that she was going to get things sorted to get the domain back because she hought I hacked the site or something… which is not true. Otherpeople commenting started calling me names and other rubbish…. I feel like giving them a mouthful back but its the internet.. who cares I am not going to stoop to their insignificant level of existence.

Bye bye ads

Recently I have been trying to get rid of ads when I am “surfing” the internet.. I hate the little popups and the sidebar annoying ads trying to always sell me something but the ads I hate the most of all are youtube ads! Some ads like the ads on google search are super hard to tell that they are ads.. so I want them gone as I dont want to be exploited. So I decided to get adblockplus for firefox which is meant to get rid of all ads….. it got rid of the annoying youtube ones and the ads on peoples sites but annoyingly it didnt get rid of the search results ads which to me are the most manipulative and sly ads of all of them. Reason, because adblockplus is getting bribed about $20 million a year by google not to block their search result ads…. How bad is that! So I have been looking around to see if there are any other blocker addons I can get to finally silence these ads once and for all… and I came across ad block edge which aint getting bribed by google and block everything… had no problems with it so far and get no annoying popups, and haven’t seen anything stupid in a while.

Have you tried these?

I have always lacked confidence in myself.. I dont know why! But lots of people do, sometimes you can do something about it and give yourself a little confidence boost, and that is what I have done… I think why I have so little confidence is down to the fact that im just below average in height and people pick up on that and like to have a go at me for it. … not nice at all really. You see people are like that and they want to bring people down and look more dominant than everyone else so these little comments here and there makes everyone else think that they are the more dominant person in the social circle. But just like everything you can improve on your height.. HAHA… they will have absolutely no idea.. and you will be more confident and can instead laugh at all of them instead. So what you do? wear height increasing insoles! Iv already wrote about them in my height guide that you can read here. I was a little scared of wearing them at first.. I thought that people would guess and laugh at me even more….. but you cannot even see them and there nothing to worry about honestly. Here is a link to my height guide which will tell you tons more about the insoles and what else you can do to increase your height.

Some people may say all of this is superficial but society is superficial.

Pump up the jam!

Iv been listening to a really great album called anthems 90’s from ministry of sound, it really seems like a whole  world away if you compare  the music on that cd than the music you find nowadays…. Yes its shows that the 90’s had style and hip hop but unlike today what they were doing back then was non superficial and actually tried making people feel good and wasn’t all about money but about the music!! I just cannot stand anything on the radio anymore.. well to be honest I refuse to listen to the radio totally now! The anthems 90s album does just have hp hop dance music but all sorts…. it really is a great cd which bring back memories and portrays a time when the world was a better place…… that may sound silly but it so true!!!! I hate hate hate the culture of today and the music its like a evil monster at the moment.

Stop with the stupid spam already!

Spammers are at the moment hammering my blog with silly posts and track backs about their stupid christian louboutin outlet stores and other garbage… There only looking for links (though its a bit dumb anyway as they use bots to create these links and must specifically target wordpress which is no follow anyway so even if they did manage to get a post posted on a wordpress blog for whatever reason.. like someone forgot to set comments to be moderated then the link will be pretty useless in seo terms anyway as no follow means that search engines bots discount the link..well I guess what more do you expect from a bunch of foreign morons in third world countries who dont know any better than getting on peoples nervous? Search engines have been trained anyway to penalize website doing this type of thing….. there just really dumb spammers!

Im going to have to disable trackbacks on this blog… already set custom comment question before posting anyway but that prooved not enough… Morons are using up my bandwidth thats one of my main concerns….. another one is because they are using these rubbish bots if the bot then think that for what ever reason a link has been placed on your site you may find that they start building teird spammy links to your site which will harm your own search engines rankings.

A great indy song

I got listening recently to a really great Indy song.. kind old but who really cares how old a song is or what other people think of it come to think of it really… the song is Animal nitrate by suade I really advise anyone that like music listen to it because that song really is MUSIC not like the utter garbage you listen to on the radio nowadays!

 

Ps dunno what is wrong with my blogs backlinks looks as though another wordpress superoito blog is nicking all my links (other blogs that se my rss feed) somehow tricking the other website into thinking that it this blog that is posting but it isnt.. very confusing.

It begins!

Today I am gonna try out my new resistance bands that I have bought from Nuovahealth (I chose those ones because well firstly because they were cheap and secondly they offer just enough resistance which I need) as part of my plan to get fitter and healthier for summer… I have tried all of this before last year but because I am so lazy I just simply gave up but this time I am quite determined not to…..before I didn’t have a mp3 player to listen to music and I really do need something to distract me and keep me entertained while I exercise either but now I did I haven’t ever used resistance bands but my friends who swears by them says they are amazing and such a easy exercise but will make your muscles ache afterwards which is what it is all about. Me I dont really get tired from exercising to much I just get bored that’s my biggest problem once I get bored I simply cannot concentrate and cannot focus on the exercise…. resistance bands are quick and easy to do and you can change what you do with them as well so hopefully I shouldn’t get bored doing them and give up. I am not just going to use resistance bands I think Resistance bands will help loosen up my body and get me warmed up and focused as I have to keep my mind and body guessing for the best workout so I am going to obviously going to do some weight training with bench press (I am not quite sure what weight I will be lifting yet not done weight in a long time) then I think I will then do some chin ups and dips……finishing off with a run outside somewhere no idea where….. I think all that sounds good to me and If I do this 3 times a week I should be fit and healthy in no time right? Good plan right?

Scammed

Is’nt it annoying when you create a website and then pay to host it on a webhost and then one day you go to your website and it just isn’t there anymore. There seems to be a huge increase in scammers online particularly in the webhsoting niche. One way they try to get around laws and to trick people is to set up a business and then say that they have later sold the business and it is no longer there responsibility it is then really hard to then find out if this is true or not and because scammers online often try to be anonymous and create loads of different alias after the scammers have your money ti really is quite difficult to track them down and these guys will continue to scam more and more people until they get caught.. these guys are true slime balls.

I am really quite annoyed with the fact that I got scammed by that hositng company maybe I should of known better… but I guess the only thing I can do now is file a dispute on paypal and try to get my money back if I can.
