I enjoy anyone who posts playlists, it’s 75% of the way I discover new music. 

It’s Bad Game Dev (BGD) time.

I warned and you enabled so here’s my mucking about with game making.

My Tools list:

  1. Unreal Engine 4 ($19/mo).  If you pay for only one month you can still use the source and tools forever.  You just don’t get updates and they update the source every month.  So I feel this is very high value for what you get. Also, they’re super responsive.
  2. Github client. (free) That’s where the source is.  You need it.  Kind of.
  3. Maya LT 2015 ($30/mo).  This one doesn’t work if you stop paying. I’m super self indulgent though and it’s almost a fully featured Maya. There is a free trial.
  4. Photoshop ($10/mo).  This also doesn’t work if you cancel.  Any image editor that’s capable of making/opening PNGs or almost any kind of image would work.  I just already had Photoshop.

So for $59 per month it’s a very full toolset capable of making games way more sophisticated than I can either create or conceive.

On to the BGD.  

The IDEA

Last month I spent an inordinate amount of time trying to win a Rancor from the slot machines.  Alas, 3 million credits, 4 days, and endless clicks later, no Rancor.  I then opened up a cartel pack and got a Rancor. ANYWAY, I made this slot machine thing in honor of that dark time in my life.

The GAME

It’s simple it’s not really a game.  You just press a key and it doesn’t give you a Rancor.  THAT’S THE GAME I PLAYED FOR A WEEK so this is practically a clone!   

Unreal Engine 4 has a nifty visual scripting editor in addition to providing the full C++ source so I used that to drive my first blueprint.  

Check out my bad mad modeling skills. 

Thanks for reading, reminder that I’ll be posting these on occasion and tagging them #bad game dev for your following or blacklisting pleasure. 

If you would like to see me attempt something else stupid and simple feel free to make suggestions.

Hahahaha.  This has just sold me on who gets the house on Dromund Kaas.  :D  I also forgot I wrote that.  Poor Aiden.

I was looking through the Lord Scourge tag for inspiration (Doesn’t everyone?) when I realized I haven’t drawn him wearing a shirt in a while. heh heh. oops.

This is my first attempt at art nouveau, featuring my favourite young lord, David Nassau. I’m including a close up of the centre filigree on the Gae Bolg because I drew it… and then covered it

Lord Scourge on Makeb

grumpy-poo:

Does Lord Scourge say or do anything interesting during the Makeb questline? Both my Sith Inquisitor and Jedi Knight are finished with their class quests, and ready to start the Makeb quests. What little I saw of them on Youtube wasn’t impressive, and the only reason I can think of to bother is for companion dialogue.

The companions do not talk during quest cut scenes on Makeb the way they do in class stories.  They do have points on the map in Makeb where they talk if they’re out and you run over the right spot.

If you don’t want to bother here is nearly all of Scourge’s voice stuff from walking around Makeb and everywhere else I’ve found that he says something.  Possible Makeb spoilers kind of?  I try to identify the places he talks so you can get them yourself if you like.

You are the only person pressuring me to do their drawing.

You are the only person who has not submitted a reference for their OC.

What’s up with that?

kabeone said: Varrel is one of my favorite characters.

Thanks!  One of those “you need to write because:” things was floating around the other day; one of the items was “you will create someone’s favorite character.”  So, wow.  Really thanks.

I love the pictures you’ve drawn of him for me.  The one was with Vashutarl (and I love the Kendo influence in this one) for one of the COFF projects was great.  I can’t seem to find the waltz one on your blog so I’m reproducing it.  It captured Varrel’s relationship with Vette perfectly.

I loved that he was older (Entrance Exam) but a master of Yovshin which explains his survival, I loved the “King and Pawn vs King" explanation regarding the Quinncident, I loved that his relationship with Vette was not romantic but still important (Larvae the follow up to Vette’s personal mission was so so good). I pretty much love all the things.
