Unity Tutorial: Hinged Doors with UltimeFPS (UFPS)

A few weeks ago I was working on a first person prototype using a Unity asset called Ultimate FPS (UFPS) and I wasn’t able to find any results on Google/YouTube on how to get hinged doors to open and close…so I decided to create a step by step tutorial to get them working on my own and hopefully this can help someone else out there!

Assets used:

Three years!

This has been a very busy year for us. We’ve been keeping busy with contract work but still found time to play around with some internal prototypes.

As for next year, we’ll mostly be focusing on the contracts we have for porting Unity games to consoles (look for announcements in Q1 or early Q2 of what we’ve been up to). We’ll still be working on internal prototypes, but in year three, they will be taking more of a backseat in terms of the overall business plan compared to the ports. read more

Tools of the Trade – Slack

What is Slack? Slack is a business communication tool. Here is a summary of what it offers:

  • Channels – These are group chats that can be public (i.e. for everyone automatically) or private (i.e. the team members need to be invited to join).
  • Direct Messages – Send a message to a team member (i.e. like any other Discord, Skype, ICQ, MSN Messanger, …. messaging service).
  • VOIP Calls – connect with a team member or group of team members (voice and video).
  • File sharing – drag and drop any files (limited size in free version).
  • Search – Quick search results from all channels and direct messages for whatever you are looking for.
  • Third Party Tool Integration – Hook up third party tools to send notifications to slack channels.
  • Mobile App – iOS and Android apps that keeps you constantly in the loop of what’s going on with the team.

    Interim Milestone Update – Prototyping

    We’ve taken a step back from the milestone schedule to focus on protoyping new gameplay mechanics and designing new puzzles around those mechanics.

    Like we said in last month’s milestone update, something was missing, so hopefully over the next few months we can figure out what really makes the game tick and start back up with more interesting posts in the near future.

    Stay tuned for much more interesting news in the future! read more
