Yup, we’re shooting Fireballs of gas cans at our enemies now 🙂 The picture doesn’t look like much, but we’ve got our main character (the guy in a white hoody) animating and walking around our game environment, our zombie enemy over in the top left corner there (not animated yet, some sort of weird bug going on 🙁 ), and our hero can shoot cans of gasoline at him! Don’t worry, that won’t be in the game. I didn’t feel like making an actual fireball so just used a substitute. Next step: Make it so the fireball actually does damage to the enemy after it hits!
I originally purchased Plygame when it was UniRPG, basically a package that would help you make a role playing game. It was a great asset back then, and when the developer announced the new changes I was pretty excited. I’m happy to say that I wasn’t dissapointed. Now know as Plygame, this asset has a ton of stuff packed into it. The focus has also been expanded to include a lot more than just RPG functionality. With it’s own visual script editor, Plybox, the developer has put a lot of effort into this asset to give game developers the tools they need to create a whole range of games. With the latest updates we now have character controllers that use Mecanim animation, which is a huge help for me because I love mecanim. After about 10 minutes of learning the new layout, I had a main character set up with correct animations, a 3rd person controller, and I had a friend set up that follows me around the map I created! I have yet to delve into the skills and factions, but I plan on it soon and hopefully I’ll have more to say about those topics.
