for these who really want to help (lot of learning warning)
« on: March 31, 2011, 06:23:40 pm »
seriosuly, if anyone of you seriously think about 'Machines 2' its time to stop giving random ideas and start doing something.

like i said many times before SpringRts engine is the best engine out there for Machines game.

if you want to help, go login on the forum, read tutorials and learn Lua language. it might be scary for the first time but in the end its quite simple and there is already tons of scrips/animations to take (all free)

this engine got already 14 (!!) games, which are still under heavy development + at least 4 'under construction'.

here is the website http://springrts.com/phpbb/

all info you need is there, go and learn it, and you might see Machines 2 even this year.

I plan to learn Lua and start coding the machines UI. I'll post it if I can get it to work. For now, that's what I'm offering.

You mean to replace the old buildings, or to remake them with the same shape, or just to make totally new buildings for different functions? I just want to know which one so I don't give the wrong help, if I give any ;)

well, i would like to keep the 'old' spirit of the buildings, but to make something new at the same time. like, you know, building is totally new, but old players will easly recognise what is what. i wouldnt be worried about creating something 'wrong'. some interesting shapes are still ok.

^terrible attempt at subtle spam :)

Sorry I'm not the first person to ask for a concept or drawing, but if I can ever use my time efficiently, I might be able to get something going ;). Anyone else wanna help with this thread?

Like I said, once I'm (finally) done with this terrible thing called 'school', I'll have a shitload more time to use more efficiently.

I'll download the app in the future no doubt and look at what it's got to offer.

oh god I have learned to hate the word app, but sounds good. I'm actually nearing the end of my school year, too. Better do more studying, and less foruming  :cry:

Thank you very much for that extraordinarily first class editorial! Very creative, one of the nicer sites I have seen today. Keep up the great work.

Yeah, and what in poop's name is up with these idiots these days, spamming the forums full of poop of how much they 'praise' the 'quality of this nice blog'? What the butt are they doing here? Never seen anything like this sort of spam...

EDIT: Spambot. Yeahyeah, spotted 'em.

Throw the grenade ;)

The Machines characters and building were not all that bad looking. If anything, try to smooth out the geometric shapes. And if Machines: 2 does get made, is it going to be marketed or will it be freeware?

Well I figure we can't exactly put a price on it, seeing as we're not a company or anything whatsoever... I suppose it'll be freeware... Unless we make such a fine job at recreating it, that maybe... just maybe, we'll draw the attention of actual game-companies and... we're off(no matter how small the chance)...

Well it would be open source, naturally, because nobody really owns it at all, and it's a community project. So that means freeware, as well. I mean, you could put it on a cd and sell it to someone, but we can't split the profits through a forum. We don't even know all of each others' names.

I'd say, we should take a 2nd look at the Machines2 creativity phase, first or we just implement the original in springRTS and add new stuff afterwards?!

:D HOLY POLYgon!! :D
