As always, you’re more than invited to follow along and get to know Unity yourself. The tutorial videos are short and very well done, so you’ll be able to progress quite fast.
Here’s a screenshot todays work:
In gaming updates:
World of Warcraft is getting somewhat boring, but that’s not really surprising. Right now I’d like to level my prot warrior to 100 and just tank everything, but that takes time. We’ll see. I’ll probably take a break until a couple of content patches have arrived and the next expansions release date has been announced. By then there’ll be plenty of new content for me.
Until then, I’ll probably try to finally finish Dark Souls (only Gwyn left) and try out Issue #10 in The Secret World. Issue #9 was somewhat of a letdown, especially considering it’s f*king 東京, but they absolutely deserve another chance.
Today I did parts 03-06 of the first tutorial, so I’m almost done with the very first, very simple example.
However, I feel like I’m taking way too long. This should really be a quick one-day project and tomorrow will be the third day I’m working on it. The problem isn’t the difficulty (there is none), but my free time, of which I should have plenty. At some point in the day I’m losing a couple of hours…gotta figure out what’s going on there 😉
Anyway, here’s a screenshot of the current progress. Once I’m done, I’ll put a compiled download of the tutorial “game” up on this blog. Don’t expect anything, this is basically a “Hello World” application.
Okay, today I’ll talk about how I’m going to progress in the beginning.
As already mentioned earlier, I’ll be using the Unity3D engine, which is very popular both with independent developers as well as bigger teams, both for prototyping and actual development of a fully fledged product.
It’s a complete engine with almost everything on board required to make a game. You’ll also want some method of creating assets, which is why I’ll learn Blender on the side as well, but not right from the beginning.
Blender can be found here, it’s also free and quite popular. But I won’t be covering this right away.
The Unity3D download is about 1GB. I’ve got everything installed and set up and will report on my progress through the first tutorial tomorrow!
