Solis WIP topic



What is this project?

Solis is my current project , this is going to be one with continuous development
and will have my full attention.

The game itself is about building spacecraft in 2d topdown action, the player can construct
, fight and control their entirely customizable vessel. The game will have heavy intensity on
intergalactic fights , mining and eventually multiplayer.

Current progress!

  • Fully functional editor.
  • Somewhat usable Guis!
  • Functional Main screen!
  • Efficient opengl based renderer
  • Full user input.
  • Exploration (WIP - 10%)
  • Object interaction (WIP-70%)
  • Entitys and playables (Not started - 0%)
  • Fights and other ships/stations (Not started - 0%)
  • Mining and resources (WIP , resources started -25% , mining Not started - 0%)
.
In detail
The game currently utilizes Lwjgl , specifically the opengl features not much else , everything other than that is written by me. Currently the game utilizes two main rendering methods (and a few others for things such as text and GUIS) , the main being perobject and layerbatching. Perobject: speaks for itself new vbo per object , I use this in situations where I have a large number of tiles that will be edited frequently , for instance the editor , in the out of dock layerbatching is used , two layers are reserved specifically for tiles , 1 layer for items(stacking dependant on size) , 1 layer for players and the top layer for effects. Only the tiles are stored in a multi dimensional array, the items are stored in arraylists generated when objects are created. Entitys are all stored in one array and are then rendered.
SCREENIES!




Demo download,very basic build editor

Future plans

  • Multiplayer
  • Mining
  • Fights
  • Full scale galactic battles (I enjoyed typing this one)
  • Resource and energy system
  • Ship crew management and health systems
  • Full ship control mode

GUI code is almost complete and will finish work on it in the morning, this includes programming:
text former
text renderer;
flowbuffer (creates a vbo that is continually added to in increments)
Buttons
Gui itself

I will also be adding in the world code which was half finished , for this I need to finish setting up the camera and input .

I have a suggestion..
Add a bigger picture / show some videos or more pictures so we have a clue what it is.
A picture says more then a thousand words.. Smiley

In the very near future , however currently the game is scrolling space , I have been implementing tile framwork and basic mechanics along with setting up the world renderer to be as efficient as possible.
Here is a screen shot of the current space algorithm.

I currently have only a few tiles , the basic ones are listed:
space
wall
floor
airlock
hazard shutter
solar panel

Reading through your features, you sound like an avid EVE Online fan :p.

I gave eve online a go and found it just overwhelming, but also that the ships were not editable and you didnt have crew. I am to have entirely controllable crew with internal resources, research , training and weapons etc.
Ive been working on programming the inventory:


Currently im at the stage were annoying bugs are appearing , the kind of bugs that require commenting out single lines of code.

Ah ok Cheesy Just your features list looks "EVE inspired", I have been playing EVE for a long time so it's the first thing that came to mind haha.

Basics of construction have now been implemented , just need to fix up resource consumption and camera position.

I suggest you provide a zip file or something slightly easier to download.

For test builds I suggest a fat jar or a zip of everything. People will be more inclined to download 1 file, as opposed to 3.

Update:
The main ship is now able to leave the dock which is the start of the adventure bit.
Major performance increase utilizing a single tile that renders static tiles instead of 256*256 individual tiles
Ship building almost complete , just need to fix a few bugs with it.
