    Default Lords of Nether Development Progress

    Hey all, figured this needed it's own thread, things have been a little scattered otherwise. To kick it off, here's a video of Lord Mordred struttin' his stuff ingame! Enjoy, folks!

    I like seeing progress.

    At the moment though my eye keeps getting drawn to those leg-capes and the strange way they move and clip through the legs. I'd just remove those all together.

    You're looking at a very early build of the game where the silly physics of the engine, which will later on be edited and fixed, are behaving weirdly and you want to cripple the visual design of the model by removing the cloth. In like, a pre pre pre alpha build. There was also an error with some colliders being set to negative and the engine not reading them so that made it a lot worse.

    You're right, I'll shut up and give you the benefit of the doubt. You'll seem a lot more ambitious in everything than I would expect, but lets see first.

    Thanks mate, i appreciate that. That said, never be afraid to level criticism where it's warranted, it's always important hearing about something that might be a genuine problem or concern!

    Are you guys using Ncloth for cloth physics? Or Apex?

    We're currently only using Unity's own physics, but if you think you know something that can be an improvement feel free to say so, we may eventually have to write our own physics engine if this isnt fixed so that would save some time.

    I would advice against writing your own physics. Writing physics is like writing a good memory manager - gonna take years to do right

    Are you using U4? U4 uses PhysX 2.8 sdk, U5 uses 3.3. 3.3 is a massive improvement over 2.8. Perhaps it would be worthy for you to upgrade?

    When you say U4 and U5 i get the thoughts of Unreal in my head :P No, were using the latest version of unity as it stands, we recently had to halt progress in order to actually.. cope with their latest update by porting the project over to it and putting out all the fires that started.

    I see. There is a physics technology called Flex (part of Nvidia GameWorks). I know that it did not come as default for UE4 4.9 (may have changed?) Check if you have it in Unity. If you do, it is pretty powerful.

    One thing however, I dont know how well it performs on AMD cards
