    First Man

    Well yes of course it's about how neil armstrong was the first to walk on the moon, but maybe you don't know the full story ? ^^'

    First Man

    I've watched it last week. I was a little bit disappointed because i'm a huge fan of damien chazelle's movies (Whiplash and La La Land) and I didn't feel like First Man was such an awesome movie. But I might have been in a bad mood and I would love to watch it again, overall it was great and gives you a more realistic overview on these crazy NASA projects from the 60s (Gemini and Apollo programs) and how the guys in the middle of this felt. I dont' want to spoil it, but just for the pictures, music and sound design → Go watch it.

    UE4 and Blender - BSP style is a must

    I don't get why you think those coordinates use irrational numbers, it's just decimal numbers with plenty of significant digits. They don't get rounded because of fast algorithms like the fast inverse square root (which I assume is more related to the rendering) that aren't perfect but gives the opportunity to manipulate complex geometry. It's important to understand how accurate your result is : if a rotation has an angle of "15.00000154121254884516515465449" , you'll need to make that rotate thousands of times in a row before slightly noticing an offset visually.

    The Door Challenge - 2018 - General Discussion Thread

    I've been trying a bit to build something for a few days but i keep getting vertices off the grid after loading the vmf ... I have a decent simple gameplay and design idea but I'm just slowed down by this kind of bugs all the time. I'm tired of source ... :- EDIT : HammerPatch seems to be a great fix for this kind of issue. Thank you klems as usual! https://github.com/crashfort/HammerPatch (read the ReadMe.md)

    Really need help for a part of my map

    Ok. You should use func_button entities for both buzzers and the button for the host. Func_button has a "lock" property, which means : With a flag "Starts locked", you can start the game with the buzzers locked (= when players will try to press them, nothing will happen) With outputs, you can lock and unlock the buzzers at any time I think that's the key to your problem. I made a map like that, if you want i can share the source files. (show example #1, show example #2)

    On what engine/game are you creating this map for ?

    A leak that shouldn't be there.

    No. I literally always do the opposite and it always work. Sometimes it can be really small holes (less than 1 unit wide), sometimes it can be skybox brushes that are entities, sometimes it can be a texture used to seal the map that just has translucent properties (even if it's not using it), sometimes an entity origin can be outside of the map (as klems said) ... It can be plenty of things, the most annoying problems are when it's not related to you work but corrupt stuff in your vmf and for which you have to do what vaya said.

    Echo the game - Student looking for feedback

    That was great, it's a great example of a short game that could actually be a prototype for a "real" game, like Limbo or Inside indeed. I really liked the story but even more the way it's told : no text, just exposition, nice The art work is pretty neat for such a short project, impressive. At first i found the wooden floor funny and weird but I guess that's also part of storytelling. And there's also a good use of lighting to guide the player eyes where he needs to look at. Maybe you could have highlighted a bit more some elements, like the handles the player has to pull down simultaneously, a bit hard to notice at first glance. Technically, everything worked smoothly (with the xbox one controller). Great job to all of you !!

    Sylvain Menguy - Level Designer

    @Dea Thank you Yea Archives is on there because actually the level design work on the map is done, the rest is more art work. I'm surprised that this kind of graph isn't common, I must probably have previously seen that in a GDC conf or something i guess. That's weird you can't scroll with your mouse, can you tell me if you have this issue with other internet browsers ?
