Gameplay: Starcraft II Wings of Liberty

Just finished the Wings Of Liberty campaign this weekend. Good story and I like the gameplay around it. It be cool to know a bit more behind the scenes and how on earth they created such a game, in terms of game logic and mechanics behind it. It must be one huge amount of variables and such from a programmers point of view. I do like the “Thanks To” part in the credits.. “Your Mother” 😛 some smart aleck put that in there. It’s really the only part I took the time to read, because it seems to genuinely come from the developers.
Anyway, I enjoyed playing it thats for sure.. So now I’ve also played a bit against the A.I. on “Medium”, I’m missing a Normal level.. Medium seems to be just a little bit on the easy side. Next game I’ll go for Hard, hoping I can still win.
Your thinking I could also just play online against someone.. well yes thats true I could get my ass whooped by some guy that only plays online all day and end up losing and getting all depressed about it… I like my #winning 🙂 Currently my strategy against A.I. is to teister it a bit and then come a long with a huge amount of a few types and just waste the **** out of them, most of the time it works too. It sure helps blocking the way in the beginning, otherwise I do lose.

By the way the visuals in some cutscenes are just amazing I’m stunned by the way they did the rain flowing over the metal. That is some really nice work! (even though it is the Havok engine and i’m all into Unity at the moment) I’m guessing thats a custom made shader of somekind, well it cant be default Havok stuff right?

Unity GLSL Shaders

Hello Again,

In an earlier post of mine about WebGL I describe a few methods to enable WebGL on a Mac (Safari) the reason I did this was to view a few interesting shaders.. (is now Now comes the cool part..
I actually got those same GLSL shaders I wanted to view running in Unity (yes for me that is a big thing).. Check out a few of these screenshots I took… It wont be long now and I may even integrate them into Image Effects on Cameras.. Continue reading “Unity GLSL Shaders”

Working on Audio in Unity

I’ve started work on visualizing audio in Unity. In the process of doing this I realized I actually quite like playing round with audio. One of my lost hobbies reborn. 🙂 I’m thinking of the potential usages for audio in unity which can be quite a lot. Currently I’m figuring out what exactly is possible with the unity engine. So far I’ve got spectrum output from an audio source projected onto various objects. When I’ve got something really cool to show off I’ll put it online.

Unity Cornell Box

For anyone interested in the Cornell Box and rendering it this is my attempt at it in Unity…
First of all I acquired the geometry for the cornell box from the site in 3DS Max exported it as a FBX file (available below) then opened up Unity3D. Using a the jpeg available from the site. Continue reading “Unity Cornell Box”

Unity Development

At work I’m currently working on a big simulator (using Unity3D) for nautical stuff. If time allows it I’ll post more unity related content and play my part in the Unity3D community. Keep an eye on this site in the next two months or so and there should be more here (if not you can kick me)..
I really should update this site this time last year I was building a new layout so I guess I should finish it and get it up and running once and for all..!!!?!?!?!?
