Raise Your Civilization is an innovating city-builder type of game. Unlike other city-builder You won't be focused on a single city. In this game, in order to survive, You will have to seek for a new places to expand. Start with small settlement then build and connect cities to finally create amazing and thriving civilization. This is a unique challenge awaiting for You.
All of that will happen without angle and grid limitations on near endless landscapes. Every map will be different and unique. You will have option to generate map of your dreams. Game will allow you to generate multiple types of terrain which you could share with other players.
Game is currently in early development stage. You can track it's development and progress on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube. There is still a lot of things to be accomplished and game has no release date yet, but I hope you will join me in this executing journey. This game is literally my dreams coming true.
Raise Your Civilization is moving slowly forward and a lot of new content and features has been added to it during May and June. Main focus was to added new content - especially building meshes. Having new buildings will drive development in near future to code all actions and behaviors around new buildings. Here are some new buildings added to the game:
Aside new buildings there are a lot of changes related to already existing buildings - especially storehouse building which now includes indicator for stored object places:
The biggest struggle for me with development in May was a bug around NavMesh. It took me a long time to fix issue with navmesh rebuild when using procedural meshes in Unreal Engine 4. Issue was related to navigation data not being cleared when recalculation has been triggered for new area. Here is example of broken nav mesh:
Finally after long hours and days of debugging the code I managed to find root cause of the issue and it has been fixed.
This was all done in May, June has started with a lot of work done around new content. My Plan in June was and still is to finalize working storehouse. By working storehouse I understand that all stored objects will be displayed in storehouse and characters using storehouse will go to correct place and there will be display of what characters is carrying. All this meshes has been added in June:
New models will be used to show character models carring it. To enable this I started to read how Unreal Engine 4 manages attachments for skeletal meshes. I found it pretty simple. They have a concept of socket which is attached to a bone of skeletal mesh.
Characters so far have two sockets - one on their back and one attached to hand bone. Here is example of hand socket in action - character carring branches:
I'm very happy with development progress from last month. Aside some struggle with nav mesh all other stuff were going smooth with only minor challenges. I'm looking forward to achieve following goals in next two months:
This plan could change - depends what I will find more important or I will have more fund developing :)
The biggest step for me was going online with Raise Your Civilization. Showing my game to the world was a big event. It was harder that I was expecting...
