What? a? Virtual Worlds? What a sh*t name? Your probably right but its just better than Android 3D mmo thingy!
Progress so far? I would of liked to give it more time but some times I am not in the mood, sometimes I can’t get out of the mood which also leads to lack of sleep! Last night I had beer! (not a usual thing sadly)
What can you do so far?
Navigate the main world, which will allow you to enter player zones and create your own zones.
You can see other players (as cubes) move about
Once in your own zone, you can place cubes to make structures (see below) this has been vastly improved.
You can climb your structures to make bigger structures (I had to make a stair case to to make the archway)
You can enter delete mode in your zone and delete things with ease
Started adding back in the voice engine, sound effects etc
There are now system text messages to show you important information
Players and zones have text above them showing their username
So to get it to the point where I can alpha test it I would like to do the follow
Create a 3D model for players as they are currently cubes
Make a 3D object for a zone, this should grow as the zone gets more popular / better in some way
Find a wider range of textures snow, grass, wood, etc
Create a control help screen to list gamepad controls
Make all commands voice activated (may get dropped)
Allow you to send messages to users (may be text or voice)
Create some sort of reason to play the game, prices, score boards etc.
Implement GCM (push notifications)
The aim is to have a demo zone thats setup for xmas when I release alpha:)
