If my little Godot plugin goes well I think I'll put up a github page for it so others can give it a try

Goal is to make creating and maintaining AtlasTexture instances faster than it is in vanilla Godot by allowing the creation of many textures in a single window.

Got some progress on the basics, need to double-check when I said I'd do my next tool stream but will be working on this live some time this Friday/Saturday/Sunday.

#godot #godotengine #gamedev

I feel like I'm slowly becoming "The Ghost of #Godot" because I follow the tag and if I ever see someone who is having trouble or seems to be learning, I want to help provide my experience.

So yeah. If I'm ever a problem just tell me to fuck off or something 🤷‍♀️

So I could just add a raycast node to an object/scene in Godot and just ask it "Hey bud, whatchya got there?" whereas in Unity it felt more difficult than necessary to get what I want.

#godot is pretty fantastic to just play with. there are a lot of toys in the box, and while i don't always understand how to use them, i usually end up with something fun

the convex collision shape tool made this cool dome mesh around my city and i'm trying to find out how I can keep it as a real mesh :blobfoxscience:​

for the moment I have it saved as a .tres file

I'll regenerate the mesh after that, so the city looks different, and it won't match 1-1. I think it will look interesting.

my blue rectangle city with better lighting (yay) and a weird collision mesh encompassing the city like a huge glass dome

I must not prematurely optimise. Premature optimisation is the project killer. Premature Optimisation is the little feature branch that brings getting tired and putting the project on the shelf for another six months. I will greybox. I will ignore the siren call of mesh generation and merely use cubes. And when the generator is finished I will turn to a technical artist to make it pretty. Only the project will remain.

...
...
fuck the FPS is slow without any proper batching though.

Anyway. Got the chunks in the above GIFs replaced with the 8x8 Hexagons they're meant to be. Lets see if I can at least power through this and get some different heights assigned.

#gamedev #procgen #proceduralgeneration #indiedev #godot

A version of the terrain generator generating a "hex" terrain map with heights (just ocean, impassable mountain, and ground), that is entirely simulated with tall cuboids, rather than a more complicated or sophisticated mapping system. It seems to be performing quite slowly, presumably due to rendering thousands of cubes that could be optimised.

(Re)added some basic hit/despawn tweens for enemies + projectiles and a draft refraction effect for splash damage (need to add some area outline for better clarity).

#GameDev #IndieDev #Godot

2D top-down gameplay snippet of the player firing a weapon's projectiles at a large group of enemies, with hit reactions (color flash, knockback) and despawn animations (pixel quantize effect, stronger color transition, opacity fade out). There is also a refraction bubble effect for visualizing splash/area damage from despawned projectiles (either on hit or lifetime expiration). Additionally, projectiles that defeat an enemy spawn a cluster of "shrapnel" small projectiles.

Thanks to docfx documentation generation, the available accessibility settings that are built-into SC4X are easier to read through. I tried to include some reasoning for the different things just in case some people aren't familiar with why that feature could be helpful. Of course I will always appreciate suggestions on how I can improve the accessibility features!

You can read the documentation here (Warning I'm not sure how well the page would work for screen readers. Lots of code sections):
https://queenofsquiggles.github.io/Squiggles-Core-4X/api/Squiggles.Core.Data.Access.html

At some point I'm hoping to make a proper "guide" page on accessibility in SC4X.

Vector math is so fundamental to games that it's typically involved in even the simplest of introductions to game development. This also goes for coordinate systems, as a requirement for movement is understanding what exactly the direction vector means for our game and how it translate to the game world.

Here I cover the Cartesian coordinate system and define 2D vectors with examples of how vector math works.

It was pretty easy to get XR set up in #GodotEngine and running on Meta Quest 2.

Hand tracking is a bit wonky though. Look at the distended pinky, & how the index, middle, ring fingers get too close together. Same thing happens w/ different hand meshes. #Godot #VR #XR

Two VR hands with finger tracking. The pinky is distorted to be far off to the side, while the index/middle/ring fingers are clumped too close together. We see the same situation across two different meshes.

The Raxxnorian Alliance
Vertical scrolling space shooter

Shooting "laser bullets" means creating new objects.

In the player script i add a variable
var timeToShot = 0

In the _physics_process function I add a new line of code:
if Input.is_mouse_button_pressed(MOUSE_BUTTON_LEFT) or Input.is_action_pressed("shoot"):
shoot()

And the shoot function:

func shoot():
if (timeToShot <= 0):
timeToShot = 6
var projectile = load("res://player_bullet.tscn")
var bullet = projectile.instantiate()
bullet.position.x = position.x
get_tree().get_root().get_node("Main").add_child(bullet)
get_node("LaserAudioPlayer").playing = true
else:
timeToShot -= 1

This can be improve by a lot - apparently you should "call down, signal up" - that's for another time.

Future optimization: instead of constantly creating and destroying bullet objects, I can create them once and then keep reusing them: an object pool. This might be more efficient.

If I don't feel like making a unique dark/lights image I've built it so I can pick a color to get mixed up or down over the midtones. By taking my flat shading + blurring or burn/dodging it in photoshop I can blend in in noise or a pattern. Now all that's left is to implement it in #godot

I have now performance tested a simple bullet hell physics system in Unity, Godot and Raylib. The premise is simple: I want a bunch of enemies on screen, converging towards the player while not clipping each other. These are the results. #Godot #Unity #Raylib #IndieDev #GameDev #Performance #Optimization 1/5

A really awesome add-on that I found on the Godot Asset Library (so you can install it directly from the editor), is "Rebuild C# Project On Focus".

It's a super simple addon that triggers a rebuild of the dotnet project when focus is restored and it detects a file change. It's incredibly similar to Unity's functionality and is a real time saver because I forget to rebuild all the time!

@Migueldeicaza @fuzzybinary in our spare time we could re-implement #Godot in #Swift. 😛 😄

The first game I made in Unity was Bees 'n' Trees, I figured I'd remake it in Godot as my first game there as well.
I have just finished the final fixes and uploaded the Godot version to the itch.io page.
I would say it turned out better, but that's probably just cause I'm a more experienced dev as a whole now :P
Overall quite happy with Godot, though am yet to try anything involving 3D.

The Unity's new "softened" pricing and policy changes are NOT good enough and they don't fix anything.

The dreaded "runtime fee" stays!
The nuts CEO & board stays!
They got what they wanted.
They WILL do this again.

Self-reported install counts will still be a nightmare and I am sure Unity will track this silently anyway.

Unity already twice silently altered their ToS.
Another "pinky promise"? SUUURE.

Finish your Unity games, and never look back.

Usually when a company does something shitty, there are people suggesting an open-source alternative to switch to, and many of the responses are "that's all well and good, but it doesn't do what I need, that's why I use the proprietary thing".

I've noticed that with the suggestions of #Godot in response to #Unity's changes, this doesn't seem to happen, or at least not to the same degree, and people seem happy to try out the suggestion...

If I were Unity, I'd probably start getting worried right about now

This is a remarkable bundle, particularly given the news in the game engine world lately. A complete package to learn #gamedev in #godot from Humble Bundle:

https://www.humblebundle.com/software/everything-you-need-to-know-about-godot-4-encore-software

So my dad (who is not super familiar with how open source works), suggested that I "reach out to the people at Godot and try to set up some networking meetings with the higher ups." Specifically with the goal of "finding out whether Godot is a good company for me."

I appreciate it because I know it's out of love and support, but I can't help but laugh a bit at how much it just doesn't work like that (at least I don't think).

So to be able to say I took his advice, anyone "at" Godot wanna give me career advice? (This includes literally anyone)

For context, I just graduated a few months ago and am now working on a Full Stack Dev certificate because I wasn't able to find a job with my existing degree. I don't even know what advice I'd be asking for.

Wow, yet another dev, Robot Gentleman, is now giving $1500 / month to Godot (the value of their former Unity licenses), plus are porting their next AND previous releases from Unity to Godot

@Gargron I'm excited with #Mastodon 4.2 as much as I'm excited with #Godot #GodotEngine 4.2 🤣

I've got a bunch of Unity game assets from various Humble Bundles. This is really handy for converting them to #godot and gltf formats.

Godot keeps winning, Unity keeps self.shootInFoot(MAXIMUM_DAMAGE)

Game devs Robot Gentleman are leaving Unity for good, switching to Godot and porting all their games. They're also upping their monthly donation to Godot to 1500 $/month.
