Ok Guys I have decided to make a thread for my RPG Demo City project so I am not spamming the Mystic MOD thread with media over the next couple of weeks as I get everything done.

Purpose of the Project

I am going to be making this demo to show X10 users how they can use all the features being added to Mystic MOD like the Variable System etc .. to create not only advanced RPG features, but also literally hours of content on single X10 map. I am going to show the new potential these systems add for us all to create truly massive adventures. So I am going to start off by showing you a screenshot of the current HUD for the city and explaining all of its features, as well I will be listing all the current working features as well as the other features that will be add be for it releases.

The HUD



NOTE: The RED numbered circles are not part of the HUD they are only there to explain its features (click the Image for a better look)

Current HUD Features


1. Quest Item Inventory

This will be used to store quest specific items. IE thing you have to collected in order to finish your current quest.

2. Ying Yang Health and Mana bars

This display shows the current percentage of health and mana your character has in a graphical style

3. LVL and EXP

These show your characters current level and experience in the game. (This is totally customizable as to the required EXP for said LVL) EXP can be gained in virtually endless ways from defeating enemies, finishing quests, finding certain items etc etc..

4. Weapon and GC (money)

These show the current amount of ammo your weapon has as well as the your Characters current amount of galactic credits (GC). This area also features a Quest Button (not currently shown in this image but it sits right above the GC area) which will indicate that your are currently working on a Quest and will toggle the quest window information window by pressing Q.

5. Dynamic Inventory

This is the games main inventory all crafting items found in the game will be stored here. It features a dynamic page scrolling style. The player can scroll threw a number of inventory pages to view all the various items the have collected and there quantities by pressing the F3 and F4 Keys. (number on the left side shows current page)

6. Armor HUD

Displays current armor and its durability. Different Armor types can have there own stats and durability levels and they can be repairable.

7. This is for usable items like medkits that are used to restore health points or mana points. These items are used by pressing the F1 and F2 keys.

OK that is all for the HUD.. for now

Things to look forward to..

-Advanced Quest System
-Dynamically spawned items/enemies based on/and/or quest/character level from a single area trigger zone
-being able to revisit a single area to preform several different tasks/quests as your character progresses.
-gain access to different parts of the map at different times depending on character level or quest needs.
-advanced crafting system that allows for upgrading and repair of weapons and armor.

and anything other ideas I can throw in there as things progress

Note: Everything created in the project (scripts, huds etc) will be released in an unprotected build of the project when it is done, so others can use it to get a jump start on there RPG Projects.

I will be updating this thread regularly over the next couple of weeks with new media etc. as things progress.

Enjoy,
-Squalker

Amazing work Squalker. You have me very excited for the future of X10 and hopefully seeing more users create stuff as incredible as this.

I think I'm going to perform more tests on this command, it could very possibly be used as a great performance enhancer.

This will also make it possible for me to package the particle effects kit as an out-of-the-box fully functional entity. I would much prefer that to releasing something that requires the user to tweak a bunch of settings in the editor to make it work.

Edit: That's actually why I've yet to release it.

I absolutely cannot wait. I'll definitely make a little game with this in the WiP board--provided I'm not bogged down by school--upon release.
I really hope people on the x9 boards notice everything x10's receiving lately. I think we might get quite a few new guys around.

not currently... I could fake it with some scripting ... make it appear to be that. but it would still just be the good old FPSC camera with a weapon in front of it lol..

I could just make it so different things happen in game based on the character class.. but you would never achieve true character difference..

Like I said its something a can give the illusion of threw scripts.. that is something I may play with later for the community project... but I know right now it will take some serious scripting to pull off right.. so I won't be including it in the demo city.

Just a quick update guys... I have been side tracked a bit with a 3rd project I had going before I started this one... I hit some major bugs in that project and it has forced me to put this on hold for the last week and a bit... I will have tied up all the loose ends with that project by the weekend...

So by Saturday I will be focused on getting this project done for you guys... So you can expect to see regular updates on this project starting next Monday... Once this Demo City Project is finished up which should only take me about 1 - 2 weeks tops... I will then be changing my focus back to the X10 Com Game...

So expect to hear a lot more on this one real soon..

After finishing up one project on friday that had been eating up a lot of my free time I took a break from Development for the weekend.. But I just want everyone to know I will now be spending all my spare time getting the Demo city finished up.

You can expect to start seeing some new images either later today or early tomorrow.

Looks good, but very dark. Also, it might be cool, instead of that road you have, make it a river, and have some bridges to cross it. Just an idea.

Well I'm back... Running at 100% again and started work on the project again this morning...

Since I have been laid up for a bit and I know you guys have been waiting for more info .. I have thrown together a little sneak preview video of how the Job system (aka Quests) will work in the project..

Demo City Job System Sneak peak

I am also going to show a couple of the scripts used in the video...

First here is the door script used for the job...

Its a fairly basic script that controls various messages displayed during different times (IE When on the job... When you have what you need ... etc etc..).




Next is the script that controls the job bank.

This is what I would consider to be a medium skill level script.. There are quite a few different huds and various controllers in this script going on.



NOTE: both scripts require a lot of things contained within the levelsetup.fpi file to work and will not work on there own...

I am just giving you guys a little peak into the type of scripting that will be going on within the project...

Next update will show off the projects crafting systems and I may post a few of the scripts that part as well..

Excellent news! The video looks great, and it must have been a pain to type up those scripts (unless you took the easy way that I would have done).

Yes there is, when I get time... I have just been really tied down lately had to play catch up after being sick and then got landed with another big contract at work ... So I have had little time for it currently...

I will finish up with my current contract at the end of the year and will be back at it full steam ahead again once that is over and done with it.. Things have just been really crazy with work and the holidays coming.. Look to see some major progress on this after the holidays are over and done.

I am currently working on the Manufacturing, Combining and Refining systems that will be used for crafting items within the city. Here is quick look at the script I wrote this morning for the Manufacturing Terminals... there will of course be a lot more option in the final script... but I am posting it so you guys get the general idea of how it will work..



Enjoy !!
