7DFPS
New to games programming 3d games. Used to be a developer in the financial sector on mainframes and databases. Looking forward to teaching myself alongside others how the 3d stuff works. WIll be using unity and I'm looking for some artists to help make the game look pretty. Will be looking to make a prototype like rust but very feature limited with gathering and pvp (or maybe player vs wooden target dependant upon time). Get in touch if you're interested.

Unity3D is an odd beast to get used to if you're used to old school coding but once you're up to speed you'll do alright. Old programmers don't die they just reboot. I tried to use it first about 5 years back and couldn't get on with it at all and tried to do everything in code (which is possible but not the easiest way of doing things) then came back a couple of years later and it just clicked. Good luck Ryan.

Yeh I've already pretty much made a 2d platform mobile game for android with other students on the same course. A few youtube tutorials got me through the basics and my minds got used to the update/fixed update loop stuff. So now it's just delving into 3d. So far from a day playing around I've been able to create a world with the terrain tool and use raycasts to tell if there's a tree in front of me or not and only allow a chopping action if it is. Was simpler than I thought but I'm sure I'll come across some mind boggling issues. Youtube is amazing for helping with that kind of stuff nowadays though and I was always a quick learner of new tools. OOJ programming is still awkward to me coming from a Procedural background but I'm getting there. Thanks for the well wishes :)
