Just released first build, which is more of a practice release and to get everyone excited, but we've implemented a third person camera, custom player model (no material), and a custom Skeleton AI entity in editor using the player model.

I apologize if there are any issues, but you are the first to test :cheesy: I understand these changes are small, but if you support a free community game in hopes of better understanding CryEngine 3, and making this information more available to everyone, please let me know if everything works fine, and come say hello in IRC chat :) irc://irc.quakenet.org/justmakegames

that is awesome. Thanks for your work. I really hope you are going to really dive into the engine and make tutorials on how to achieve this code-wise.

What happened to the original production design of the cartoony bring an apple to grandpaw idea? This now looks like any other cryengine game and is no longer unique compared to how it looked before. I would suggest an art direction and production design that will make it stand out from the crowd of cryengine games and have a unique look and feel to it. As the game is looking now, I wont have any interest to play it when its finished.
I will still watch the tutorials though and hopefully will learn a lot from you guys.

I also have a lot of VERY high quality displacement maps I have created for another game, I would be willing to donate them to interested mod teams if there is any interest.

Maybe because its still running on the example level released with CE3?

big fish, note that the custom player model that isnt cartoony at all.
Maybe its just a placeholder though. In some of the concepts that they showed on the website, there did not seem to be a uniform look to the production design. The WIP custom player model by bremen1984 for example. I was thinking I would be able to see those village huts in CE3 all their low poly glory! ~8^)

Did u watch the video muted? are u just in a good mood to **** stir ?
"custom player model, right now were just using a low poly human mesh for practice"

yes thats due to the project not have a solid idea or such behind it yet... as if u payed much attention to there site.. Everything there is open for discussion and ideas from the community, the concept popping up are mostly just random people chucking in an idea..
Instantly assuming that its going to be boring or cartoony due to a few very different pieces of concept art that were just throwing ideas out there is kinda being a prick.

The custom player model has no texture, and is using the stock animations, running in the stock map... It's not much to judge the final art style by, is it? :P Might just as well be a placeholder model just to proof the asset pipeline.

Good to see you're getting your workflow right, that's some pretty nice progress right there considering the lifetime of the SDK so far! :)

I wont hold it against you big fish, maybe you just had a bad day because you found out "the cake" is a lie. ~8^)
