I am a programmer, artist and musician working as part of OmniVoid Studio and Shattered Studios to make Ashes and Maintenance
Stop downloading this, it doesn't work. It was hooked up to CryDev but Cry is now EaaS so go and buy it.
Modding for SP and MP, the Mod Kit has been available since 2008. Even I used to make maps for MP, Someone (Thank you whoever you are) saw that you cant download it from anywhere else and reuploaded it.
You can pin the new lighting down to Source 2013, quite a good update.
Also we've been quite for a bit as we are not sure about either updating to Source 2 or continuing with Source. So we will hopefully be uploading some stuff
Looks awesome so far
A flashlight has not been implemented yet and the glow is just from the reflective texture of the basic text on Unreal 4. Unfortunately it is only me working on this at the moment.
You do have to remember this game was built on an XP system. The differences between XP and Windows 8 are insane.
Not particularly but Unreal 4 has easier scripting and will still turn out better. I'll probably just leave it on Unreal 3 anyway, considering how many people want it on Greenlight. It would be easier to crowd fund the $100 USD for Greenlight and just run it through Unreal 3. Saves everyone the $250
On the Graphics front, thats why I chose Unreal the first few times. Although the graphics may not be AAA or advanced indie, they will still look decent.
That's because the guy who did this, who I thought at the time was a great mapper. Used a brush (wall/floor piece) as the bed. He should have used the bed model from Half-Life.
Should be a lot better on Unreal though.
Yeah, hopefully haha.
Scratch that previous comment, you were exactly right. We are hoping to actually make some progress on the game this year.
norKtre55 is correct, it is a Japanese word and the original top down RPGMaker game was created by a Japanese student.
Yeah, we will be going with Source now due to all the user votes. From what I have tried alredy Source 2013 Multiplayer and Singleplayer do not work whatsoever. I have been working with Visual Studio for the past day trying to fix it. If we cannot fix it I will be looking at the CryEngine due to it being on Steam and the visual improvements graphically and gameplay wise.
Thanks, I was mid way through a custom vehicle but had to format my Solid State Drive and reinstall Maya And CryENGINE
Any planned updates/screenshots?
also don't you think creating a Valve based game on the Unity engine kind of breaks the logic of Half-Life? I mean Source is a lot easier to learn than Unity, just check out 3kliksphillip!
What? That's ridiculous... I thought you would have at least a 660Ti 2Gb. Just show's how much dedication to optimisation you guys have put into this game. I'd love to see the same amount of ships on my 680 4Gb haha.
Yes, that is one of the many reasons we have returned to the CryEngine. It helps provide the amazingly immersive environment especially with the stealth features we are planning to implement
Whats going on with the trailer? Its all just base CryENGINE assets...
I would be happy to 3D model this and a few other models for you. I will send you my portfolio through Facebook or your e-mail. I should have a low poly model done in about 10 hours from now (work etc).
It would be good to work with Red Inc again.
If you have any more questions I would be happy to answer them. Just PM me
Yes, the game is still going to be based on the original RPG Maker game Ao Oni. We had changed the name around 4 months ago aswell.
What kind of items etc would you need modelling on Blender? I might be able to help you there
What do you mean by this?
Yes I agree, this was a very early alpha map that we had worked on a while ago. We have changed the layout of the entire house but are hoping to have these maps in there after we edit them.
From what I've played this mod is pushing in the right direction. I think if you stop using models from sites like gamebanana and learn to model or find a good friend who knows how to model and start creating models and advanced maps for people to check out.
Ohh how wrong you were all those years ago. The game is excellent but the engine is horrid to work with. It seems Valve and Respawn Entertainment (Titanfall 2013, yes a modified Source Engine game) have modified it and made it an excellent engine to use.
A lot better than the original 2008 engine that you would have had to deal with.
Figure of speech. What I mean is that a lot of people needed the information that Artyom is giving you.
A lot of people would have killed to have this support when they first started modding. Advice like this is rare from other developers.
I hope your not focusing on a career in games development as anger management and an attitude towards others will get you nowhere in a career like this. You will always have to work in a team no matter what.
