Back after nearly two years

Post by ANUBITEK »

I'm back! Probably no one remembers me, I was the guy making that Unreal Gold 2.5D platformer. I had since moved on to make a game in Godot instead of a mod (videos below for reference), but I've come back because I want to start making UT99 maps and releasing them. I have a CTF-Noxion edit I need to release to start, but it has some pathing issues right now. I've also been working on an edit of Plutonia Experiment (Doom 2 WAD) so I'll be posting some stuff of that in offtopic from time to time. I'm also way down for deathmatch, any time. Glad to see this community has actually stayed active. :mrgreen:

Unreal Gold RPG Mod (old, may continue 1 day):

Oh, hey there bud! I kinda do remember you! Welcome back! :D

Also, linedef? I remember that word from like, Doom, or something, heh :p

Like you, I did also have a game project, which I abandoned, and I'm also doing it over. It is a fresh attempt, with more skills and a tool I wrote myself using Python, but I didn't change engines. Both projects are ZDoom projects, to put it shortly. But I digress.

You have to be able to implement your ideas or provide some useful skill. Never join a project whose idea man or leader has no obvious development skills. Never join a project that only has a web designer. You have your own ideas. Focus on them carefully and in small chunks and you will be able to develop cool projects."

Guilty. I've borrowed plenty of terms from Doom and Unreal, like Pawn, Actor, Linedef, Decoration, and so on. lol

Uh oh, wait for the next version. It is getting an update adding Vulkan renderer. Also GDScript (scripting language) is getting a massive rewrite.

What if I told you I'm considering porting this to UT99:

That mod is partly what inspired me, at least Unreal 2D was. I have issues with movement and camera in the mod, but it is a fun idea.
