VoF Productions Needs:

Postby Jesse James » Fri Apr 10, 2015 7:25 pm

Recently it has been brought to my attention that I can't do everything myself. I'm not a comic book super hero (as much as I would like to be). :wink:

With that in mind, I've decided to write up a post of all the things VoF needs in case someone wants to take the lead and help us out!

I will update this thread as things are completed and by whom as well as when things are added. If you have any suggestions, post them!


Website:
Solid Backlinks from reputable websites
Articles (Always and forever)
VoF Wiki page

Forums:
We need a shiny new header!
Custom VoF related smilies would be neat if that is your thing.

WWT:
We need a royalty free update to both the minimap and the loading screen.
Werewolf - Transylvania Facebook page
Anything on this list you think you can help with: Werewolf - Transylvania 1.26 To Do List

I'm going to try fiddle around in Unity again, possibly use graph theory to do RTS style movement, if I can find a good algorithm. Anything else in particular you want me to try?

Tonex:
RTS style movement would be a huge step. I imagine we can find existing resources for health bars, but perhaps we could hunt down some code assets for inventory?

Maddeem:
I might take you up on that madd. We'll see what I can get done this coming weekend, there isn't too much left to do to get 1.26 back into beta.

The movement may prove to pretty difficult for me to work out, as it requires some higher level concepts that I don't entirely understand yet. Health bars should not be too difficult, just a floating rectangle with (current life)/(max life) filled at any given time. Inventory itself is probably not too hard, just an array of items, but the items themselves may prove to be more difficult, haven't given too much thought yet.

What's supposed to be in the VoF Wiki?

Also I can help with the facebook page - delete it.

I've browsed the asset store for unity a few times and there are quite a few pre-made systems that can be imported. I believe I saw an RTS system at one point. There is also a host of amazing tutorials for just about anything you could want. I wont have the time to really invest in applying them to a project until summer (Mid may) but I'm acquiring bookmarks of things that interest me in the mean time.

The VoF wiki is there to explain what we are, what we do, what we have done, and link back to the website.

It's adorable when you try to emulate steaks. :mrgreen:

I realise that wikis are cool and all right now, but for those purposes usually exists the "About" page.

If someone is on our website and they visit our "about" page that is great. If they're on wiki, they don't even know we exist.

An about page does nothing if there aren't sources on the web linking to our website that get us traffic who will actually read it.

What makes you think people will find our wiki instead of our website?

Have you thought about sending your project to a game company?

Maybe I'm wrong
