Its kinda hiatus atm, as I simply don't have time at all :(.
But I wish that some day I will continue :D.
Yesterday and today I have been working on something super awesome, because it is something I need to study and I have to do it anyway in both php and android. It is called 'login system'. Itsasically keeping user data in mysql server (password encrypted obviously). Player now gets login screen instead, that is if they open game first time. In there they need to enter correct username and password to log in. If username and password is correct, they will get their account information (currently only sector number and their permission level)
It is getting shape, slowly but surely :D!
No pictures, because logging in screen looks ugly anyway.
It has been while, hasn't it? Since my university finally began, i have been rather busy. But this isn't main reason, why I haven't had much time to work on my own game. My mobile (HTC desire), i pretty much blew it up. Because now it doesn't show more then HTC desire logo and I refused working on emulator, so I pretty much didn't work on this game at all.
But good news, I bought new mobile (Samsung galaxy S2) and first thing i discovered about game was, it won't run on android 4.0, because in newer version of android, you cannot run some stuff on main thread. So, basically I had to redo a lot of stuff. It took only 3-4 hours, so it wasn't that bad. But I did include some features and also fix some other issues, what I had before anyway.
Few things I added (For myself mostly, I will change them soon, as every person has their own sectors)
* Instead asking section every time, it nows saves your last location.
* Loading screen when you inspect planet, till it gets all its data.
So, I don't have anything new to show you, except those two pictures, enjoy:
Loading screen ;D! Epic, ain't it?
After whole day of working on my epic game (I wish at least), I finally managed to get past final bug (what I couldn't fix) and produce epic planet viewing system + random generator. It still contains lots of bugs, but I don't care as main functionality works! So, I wont stop you from waiting and below are some epic pictures!
Sector 552, random generated sector - I liked those 3 planets, experimental server chosen!
Picked one planet. Since this sector was just generated, these planets are still unknown.
After long thinking, I decided to name it 'Lost Treasure' -> I do not know what bonuses it will give.
Note: All these datas at the right are random generated (depending from planet type)
Another planet. As you can see, it still has bugs (obviously), for example no background and planet is too huge so small part of button is hidden.
I am happy how it looks ;). Gonna work more another day, now need break :D!
Hey all. Even though I have worked more than few days on it, I have started actual developing today, as today I have finally something to show you.
Since very very young, I have always dreamed about one game, it has been in my mind for ages. This is space game, where I will move between sectors, discover galaxy and expand my people territory on other planets.
So, today I took step, spent little bit money to buy myself server with mysql, so I could actually have place where I could store my stuff. Btw, I am doing this for free.
So, I actually have first screens as well. Remember, probably all those pictures are placeholders, but they will do for now. Also, jumping between sectors won't be so easy, but this is made for development sake ;).
This is where I select sectors, just to test out if they work.
This is sector 667, since this didn't exist before, it got random generated.
This is sector 1, it contains 3 planets, starting from left: destroyed planet, moon-style planet and green planet, where you can always colonize, which has also cheapest living costs.
Oh, I forgot to mention, I will make so that all data will go through internet, since I plan to make it for multiplayer anyway ;).
More posts in future, when I have made some progress!
