Current Plans

Lot is going next year, but I'm definitely going to be updating the game more frequently. At the moment, There's no new build out. I just added a combat music system, so I'm trying to figure out what music I'm going to include in my build. (Probably some copyright free music). There's several other improvements including:

  • NPC Recycling that reduces stuttering
  • CAMERA THAT SUCKS LESS
  • Weapon wheel
  • Soda is now an item you can pick up
  • New weapon models and animations
  • Audio rebalancing
  • Better physics (controller and ragdoll)
  • Proper Crouching
  • A pause menu
  • More debug stuff!! 

Also, I'm deciding to move to Patreon for blog posts because it's way better than typing stuff here. This site editor is a nightmare to work. I'll probably use this as a splash page for my game giving links to all my different social media and development.

I have a lot to do before formally releasing the game. This includes but isnt limited to:

  • actual story
  • original character models and music
  • a vertical slice
  • marketing assets (logo, icons)
  • a trailer

I'm currently trying to refine all the mechanics and making sure that the game will run at a stable framerate. I've recently encountered the issue of the camera stuttering, mainly caused by NPCs and objects not being pooled. I decided to have a pooling system of time-consuming objects in order to stabilze the framerate. For the most part, it worked.

I'm planning the next build to be an actualy level with a goal. Wish me luck.


Whoever actually reads this, Thank you.

Improvements

Several improvements across the board. 

  • Character controller now uses forces instead of Root Motion.
  • Shout outs to EmplaceBackCS for helping me with setting the velocities correctly.
  • Also there's no more inventory, but a weapon wheel. Currently, it only shows the current weapons you have. 
  • Melee-ing enemies now ragdolls them when hit
  • Also finally fixed the stupid reloading bug.


New-ish controls: 

  • X - equip weapons, drop weapon on weapon wheel;
  • Tab (hold) switch weapons, point to weapon you want.

hot first update

Hi I'm Meowzors and I'm making this cool game in Unity. It's a third person shooter featuring my character Keruru.

It orginally started as an experiment using Cinemachine and ragdoll physics, but I decided to make a game out of it.

Currently, I'm desigining a level, AI, and tweaking a few things with the character controller.

You can watch me on twitch.tv and soon, I'll post builds on google drive to mess around in and give feedback.


Hi there, I'm Shawn. I'm making a game called SmugForce. It's a third person shooter I'm making in Unity. Currently, I'm coding the mechanics and systems for the game. I occasionally post test builds publicly available for anyone who stumbles across this site. If you're interested, follow my social media links below to see the progress I make. Thanks for stopping by!
