Hello, i’m agoose77 and i’m looking for some help in creating a plugin for Blender.
Since the plugin manager has been added, world of new features have become available to those who previously knew little of add-ons for Blender.
Currently, Blender lacks features (in the BGE) to match those of Unity 3D, another free Game Engine, because of a)render and logic, but also b)extensions.
Unity 3D has one plugin in particular which i feel ought to be brought to the GE.
When playing a game, it can be fun yes, for a while. But after some time, one may think; ‘this would be so much better, if i could only play against someone else!’.
Now, some of us here on Blender artists have posted our successes in creating Games which run over a network, but many have requested (and not received) help.
The reason for this is that a majority of those who are pulled to the Game Engine do not have skills in Python, and are confined to Logic Bricks. Now, many a good game can be made in logic bricks, but Networking isn’t part of the system.
What i propose is to create a plugin which provides both access on an api level (calling modules and global variables, but also provides logic brick functionality.
Now, to do this, i need to be able to create an add-on which provides all these features-AND is accessible to both Python savvy and Logic Happy users.
I have already made a few network demonstrations, but i have no experience in Add-on development in Blender.
Another user here on the forums sent me a link which enabled Logic bricks to be made from a more interpretable xml file (psuedo code) and that was parsed to generate logic bricks.
Unfortunately it could not link the logic bricks, and thus at the moment has very limited functionality.
Let’s cut to the chase!
So, what am i asking for?
- someone who can aid me in creating a GUI,
- someone who can help me make logic bricks via python (no user assistance)
- someone who can help me implement this into callable modules
Is this you?
If so, please leave a comment below.
i’m wondering, how easy is it to create a ‘new’ type of logic brick?
At the moment i have three options:
1)make an add-on
2)make a component using Moguri’s system
3)make a new ‘network’ logic brick.
I think i’ll make a poll
