just to show the water thing I've added to viviscapes engine, this area will prolly not make its way to viviscape, its just for testing really.

if you find any glitches/problems I'd really appreciate it if you let me know.

comments really appreciated on this one :aww:

Great course!! I just found this though--when you reach the little floating water-box, and you try to jump off the wall onto the edge of it, if you miss, slide along the side, and keep pressing up, you can go through the bottom and into the water! It's pretty cool, I have to say.

thanks for the heads up, I'll have to check it out, though I dont think it will be an issue due to the way the water will be placed in the actual game :)

I found two small glitches.

When underwater, upon hitting the bottom of a physical object, the character will bounce back down strangely. In my opinion, this is an odd behaviour because it is not consistent with the other three collisions.

And the second;

When you just enter the water, if you change direction before you get too deep to jump out normally, it will jump straight back out again, allowing you to "walk on water" to an effect.

This should be easy to fix, just make the jump function to check for vertical momentum when attempting to jump out of water.

Although having little easter eggs like this can be fun in some games. You could consider it an "advanced technique" of sorts. It's rather difficult to pull off, and may take you a while to re-produce the bug.

I enjoyed playing around with this example, and your other one with the large world to explore. There's a few bounce issues with walls though.

thanks, to be honest I was tempted to add them, but as it is it adds to the idea that the character is just stumbling through the world, she doesen't really 'fit' it.

anyhoo, thx for the comment :hug:

The only real comment I have to make is the splash. The bouyancy thing is great, the ripples after you get into the water is a nice touch, the bubbles are great, but there's no splash. It made the huge fall just a big less satisfying.

Also, it's probably been mentioned, but you can put her head into the floor/walls while swimming.

not really, there is gravity, and some horizontal inertia, and basic bouyancy in the water but I woudnt call any of it physics ^^;

Very nice, but you should try and use a v-cam instead of the screen changing. Just one question, is the water ripple a movieclip?
Reply
:iconsophiehoulden:
SophieHoulden Featured By Owner Apr 25, 2007  Professional General Artist
ya it is, I'm not anywhere near capable enough to code actual ripples lol.

as for the v-cam thing I assume you mean having a scrolling background and a camera following the player, as much as I would like to do this, the artwork in this game is pretty heavy and few computers would be able to pull that off without a load of lag :(

Couldnt you make it all into a bitmap?
Reply
:iconsophiehoulden:
SophieHoulden Featured By Owner Apr 25, 2007  Professional General Artist
I could make some of it into a bitmap, but for the parts that are animated they would have to stay the same, and as things like grass etc are spread pretty much across the screen it would be cause for much rerendering. and also the fact that bitmaps of that size would take up alot of memory.

to be honest, its getting to the point where a game like this could scroll in flash, but that wasnt the case when I made the engine, and I would pretty much need to recode the lot to make it scrollable, not to mention adapting the graphics to be seamless.

Yeah, but it is a great feature, and i have learned, if you want your game to be the best, you have to do some stuff that are really boring and time consuming, but you still have to do it

:iconsophiehoulden:
SophieHoulden Featured By Owner Apr 26, 2007  Professional General Artist
lol of course I know that, but from the very beggining of development it has been designed as a screen by screen game, each area is framed by the screen and measured in a particular way, to have a scrolling game would cause a complete change and it would actually feel unnatural to play.

to put it in context, abes odessy/exodus could have been scrolling games, there was the technology, but you would miss details in the environments and art and ultimately it wouldnt be as immersive.

having a stationary background causes a different psychological effect on players, it actually works in viviscapes favour as more movement onscreen would increase the games pace, whereas just moving the player makes the game more tranquil.

I appreciate your input, but its not like I dont know how to add it or cant be bothered, I have been working on this game for almost a year now. and it will be a good few months before I even think of calling it finished. but the core gameplay is something that I have planned out at based on how I want people to react to the game, not on how other platform games work :)

and hold up you can't fall. you kinda just keep pulling yourself up on nothing.
