Re: New game: Top down city!

It would be great if this could have an effect on gameplay. if the canopy is open you should be able to shoot with your hand gun but also be vulnerable to bullets. if its closed you should be protected but not be able to shoot It's not difficult to make this, however extra animations would be neede...

Re: New game: Top down city!

For car details that's fair - maybe once i change the vehicle deltas system to actual components, the decals could be implemented with those systems. For particle system i don't think those particles are duplicated, afterall, there are always 2 explosions - one from your rocket exploding, and others...

Re: New game: Top down city!

When creating the mod, I was faced with the fact that only health began to fall out of the wooden box - this is due to the fact that I changed the names of the weapons in the game.sqlite3/weapons table to new ones. For this reason, I had a suggestion to improve the drop mechanism and not only: 1. A...

Re: TDC GTA2 DLC

This makes me really happy - it shows that tools work, engine works and people can figure them out it all has some real potential :) towtrucks are definetly a possibility - same mechanism can be used as for trailers, but different "hitch types". It wouldd need some special work to make it work (rear...

Re: Carnage3D - [yet another] GTA1 remake project

Actually i'll say that gta2 is easier - the sty files are nearly identical to g24 (same layout of sprites and tiles, better animation support) and file format is better documented - i built a sty tool and it's source code is availible (even tho it's written in pascal - https://gtamp.com/GTA2/gta1-gt...

Re: Carnage3D - [yet another] GTA1 remake project

I checked the code and had good nostalgia moment of my gta1 and gta2 reverse engineering, the code looks good, you did your homework with the file formats, i congratulate you that! Let me know if you have any questions regarding the rest of gta1 file formats (fonts, cmp, g24..) i had my own set of e...

Re: New game: Top down city!

A 1:1 conversion from cmp,gmp and sty,g24 files is possible without any loss, it's certainly not high on my todo list but it is doable. In theory it is even possible to merge multiple maps into one since TDC map size is not bound to just 256*256 blocks. Maybe there can be a issue converting some stu...

Re: New game: Top down city!

Standard colors could be something set via scripting, i do not wish to limit this in any way, just set hue, saturation and lightness and you can get any color.

Re: New game: Top down city!

please note - files you might edit will not be readable in new build, the file format changes are not backwards compatible.

colors: there is no color palette in the game, you can use any color via RGB mechanism.

Re: New game: Top down city!

This what you describe exactly are the little details that are missing, and trust me this is not even everything. A LOT of this was already fixed, and will work far better in the next release - it's a lot of little things syndrome, so let me answer some: Car creator does have door pivot that you can...

Re: New game: Top down city!

Next version has improved error reporting, hopefully this helps identify the crash if it wasn't fixed already, i fix a dozen of random crashes monthly. walk-in doors: animation is not yet properly implemented, the doors work fully, but the animation is missing. Regarding your experience on different...

Re: New game: Top down city!

Thanks for testing, i will comment some points, i can already say that a lot of this was already improved and fixed on my side, but just wasn't published yet, the rest of issues regarding feel of the game are adjustable to suit your need. I was not trying to reproduce gta2 feel, which is why some as...

Re: New game: Top down city!

It's being worked on slowly - currently i'm doing AI updates, so far AI can navigate around simple vehicle obstacles and go around them, but cannot yet find long distance paths, which is where i'm implementing a complicated A* variant to work with the map geometry. I've also replaces (improved) a lo...

A bit slow development.. but i'm working on getting crashes in physics engine fixed, in the meantime i also: - Added support for map tile materials (this finally lets me have bullets that can pass thru fences) - Basic map sun Lighting, this makes slopes and walls shaded differently, it also enables ...

Re: New game: Top down city!

proximity particles are availible, so is range damage - this is how explosions kill people - it's a sprite particle with radius, time to live + damage parameters. With this, you can creater a gas bomb. Particles can also spawn new particles after hitting things or after certain time, so a cluster bo...
