Test Scene Is Running

I got the test scene of the game finally running. It took some time but I was able to get the low poly car into Godot, and I was actually able to make a scene out of it. It took a bit to get used to using blender to get everything working, but I found a really good low poly model that I was able to export from blender as a .obj file. Once it was imported it was a simple drag and drop and I had my car on the screen like you can see below. I have to say I was quite proud of myself since I have never done anything like that before.

Not to much of an update since I have just started the project, but I wanted to drop in and give an update anyway. I am also going to set this post as kind of a template for how I want to do these in the future so they are all uniform.

Engine Of Choice

Currently I am going to be developing this game in Godot Engine mostly because I have used it before and I like it. Its pretty easy to use, and to learn. The better question is if I am going to be running this as a 2D or a 3D game.

Today Godot 3.1 was released to the general public. It just so happens that this morning I was talking to another developer I work with from time to time, and I said when 3.1 is released I have an idea for a new game. I just didn’t think it was going to be released as soon as it was, egg on my face.

Godot 3.1 Released

I know that ads on a website are super unpopular, I mean come on how many different ad blocking extensions and programs exist out there today. I get it, I even added an ad blocking server in my house using Pi-Hole, which by the way is awesome.

I have ads on the site for two main reasons. The first being I wanted to learn how they work, and how to add them. On a normal site you add in the code and everything is normal, but on something like Jekyll you need to do it a special way. The second reason, even if I generate $10 in my lifetime using these, that is $10 I didn’t have before, so for me that is a plus.

In the spirit of being as open as I possibly can about this, I will say I have only made somewhere around $5 currently on the ads, and all of the ads are served by Google AdSense.

On a side note I have also been working on a large number of spelling mistakes in my website. Turns out I can’t really type to save my life, and I don’t proof read things before I ship them out. It explains a lot about me.

Lets not beat around the bush here, I stink at FPS games, and I really stink at games where I need to play against other people. I remember when my buddy started to play PUBG I was curious But I never tried it. I remember when Fortnite came out I never thought I would be good enough so I never played it. Recently while listening to the BombCast they started talking about Apex Legends And I thought it would be something I would be interested in.
