Should traffic wardens be armed?

Multi floors/layers would be nice, with stairs.

I tried real 3D maps but the view point makes them very hard to navigate.

Stairs etc definitely coming just as I get moving on it.

Looks pretty cool.  The dungeon art-style and characters reminded me of Gauntlet and the ability to walk behind things reminded me of King's Quest.

Still working on this one - map generation is getting better and I'm revisiting the network layer atm.

What should you keep in mind when coding movement etc with regards to the networking?

Packet loss, packet loss and packet loss Smiley

For this project at least it's a matter of syncing character positions - so I'll probably implement some sort of delta compression type thing. Assuming I carry on the game as a player controls a single hero in the world I guess.

There is something about kev's games that is addictive yet fun despite being so simple.

I thought it was interesting before, but the switch to sci-fi is unprecedented on the excitement scale. That just looks so good!

The slopes leading to door have a very severe gradient tho. It might make for some interesting sliding mechanic?

 I hope it will be like space crusade! Makes me want to switch to sci-fi now!

I do realise how complex they are inside. I was talking about gameplay. One my favourite games you made is Crusaders of Yore, and that was one of the slightly more complex ones. I hope this is one of your projects that gets past the prototype stage.

(I accidentally bumped the appreciate button while trying to quote you. You probably deserve it anyway Smiley)

Turns out that the gameplay is actually the most complex part of making games  Cranky Who knew?

If that was sarcasm I must point you to Super Hexagon.

(Btw, clarifying gameplay: I meant what the player does/thinks, not what the programmer writes/thinks)

Sorry, I realise that sounded rather sarcastic Smiley I've had an awful morning! (Another story)

My much less sarcastic response is... it turns out that to eventually alight upon those perfectly simple ideas normally takes months, or even years, of refactoring, agonising, deleting, rewriting, experimentation. They may look simple on the outside but underneath, that's 90% of the work that goes into making a game. The tech is increasingly marginal.

COOL!

1) Are you using Slick2D or LWJGL?
2) Is it necessary to not render unseen pseudo-voxels?
4) Isn't it slow to go through a 3D array every frame?
3) How do you clear entities (or dynamic objects)? Do you just reload the world every frame and put entities on top or remove voxels of an entity in its AABB?

I'm using LIBGDX - but LWJGL and Android

It doesn't render anything off screen

Yes it's slow, but fast enough (runs at roughly 700 fps on my local PC)

Clearing entities is a intricate process for performance reasons (viewable and shadows). Reload the whole world every time would kill it.

That was what I was talking about! I was also planning on making a voxel displayer similar to your method but I found that only a single view angle doesn't work too well
