[August - September 2020]: #Collaboration INTAKE! (We’re working on the Official Alpha Demo Build!)
I did Updates in June with my private team:
Hey guys its been a while since my last major update on my thread in the Game Engine Section of the Forum and so im currently running available free positions for people to join my new upcoming Free Collaboration. Offcourse this is not a paid job but it is a beneficial opportunity for you guys to grab along and start working part time whilst you further your skills in your own personal projects!
!!! AND SO WE’RE BUILDING TOGETHER SOMETHING GREAT - THAT ALREADY WORKS !!!
What We Have achieved so far in terms of Builds! (FINAL PRE-ALPHA COMPLETE)
So basically our PRE-ALPHA
Build was a separate milestone for room to experiment with Blender’s Game Engine
now forked as UPBGE
, for a while i push and tested its limits, we have our results and most are successfully passed!
Now we’re focusing on making the Actual Build
that will be playable and available publicly to play and test out!
Wanna know what the project is about Read More Here!
WHY SHOULD PEOPLE JOIN THE TEAM?
Why not? Well after all its a Freely Given opportunity even though its not paid! Take it or Leave it!
We’d still be fine if people didn’t join either, the project will still go on it may just take abit longer to finish a public build with a team of few dedicated people, due to the amount of tasks to be done at hand.
As the Founder and CREATOR of the project, im not just benefiting for my own personal gains, heck im even the one who’s putting more than what is required in order to see results, im simply also learning in this environment i created, that way we can give back to the community as promised by plan!
This project is helping me get the necessary skills and methods i can use to undertake future projects in any other game engine and also its taught me to master my own skills on my other personal solo projects.
Reminder: About the #collab_team
TBW Collaboration team is an environment i designed and created on discord to help and expose passionate upcoming talented/ noob artists who are interested in perusing UPBGE Game development as a hobbyist or a solo dev.
this Private Collaboration space is created for people to Learn, Test, Benchmark and also contribute to TBW’s development. Tasks and roles are given, the best contributors might earn their way up the ranks and make it on the High Council once the time has come!
What does it look like? (So this is How our Communication Group looks like)
Here we collaborate, communicate, share new discoveries, experiments, methods and new ways that we use in our skills and line of work…
The collaboration Team is more like a freelance model, so you work according to your time your way but atleast manage to complete certain stuff that you are contributing to the project…
We follow a very specific Workflow for the project and the platform has already been provided for new members, we have a Git-Repo for the Project as well! and we also have a Tasks guide Tracking platform and a Cloud Drive where we store our progress!
Our Trello Achievements!
Current INTAKE! (Job Requests)
- Right now we are currently focusing on building our 1st Public Alpha Demo Build and so here are the type of Artists we need, please note that most of the guys on the team are from the Blender Artists Community and are used to working with blender.
What do we use? (Software/ Game Engine!)
Blender 2.80+ (Realistic Renders/ Modeling/ Texturing)
UPBGE 0.2.0 - (Based on Blender 2.78)
UPBGE 0.3.0 - (Based on Blender 2.80+)
We allow the use of UPBGE 0.2.5 as well for the project but our builds are currently being made on 0.2.0!
How to Join? (THERE ARE REQUIREMENTS !!!)
- Noob’s are accepted to join (Join Via our Discord and Apply!)
- You need to atleast have a portfolio (Art/ anything/ 3D Skills/ Coding)
- You need to be passionate! (Have enthusiasm and be excited to work with us!)
- You need to know Blender! (Any version is fine just so long as you can get started)
- You will have to Join Via Discord
- Then you will need to Apply! (You apply for a role on the server and you wait for us to assess your Application!)
Here’s an example on how to apply!
Once you join our Discord Server you will be in our #General Chatroom, then you type in
!apply_for_collab this will grant you a role that will give you access to start the Trials!
The reason why we do Trials, is because this is a private collaboration, we just don’t accept anyone, you have to prove your worth and once you’ve passed the criteria, according to your skills and portfolio then we will accept you in the team and provide you with everything you need to get started! (You will have access to project files and resources of all sorts!)
take note this is not a 9 - 5 freelance job this is voluntary work and contributions, so you work at your own pace, but we do have deadlines; also you work on what you can do! we don’t tell you what to do! the project has a guide & we all follow and we work in the best of our ability to achieve what we can!
when we get stuck, we help each other out, if there are technical limitations with the software we workaround! THIS IS WHAT HAS KEPT THIS PROJECT RUNNING SINCE 2017 !!!
Remember this is a Private Collaboration and its not Open Source Development!
