Playmaker starter kits. Any interest?
« on: December 30, 2012, 05:01:07 AM »
Hello,

I was toying with idea of entering http://onegameamonth.com/ with developing one Playmaker based game a month. Ranging from retro to tower defense. Throughout the year.

I was wondering if there's any interest if I try to sell this kits as starter kits on Asset store?

Anyone?

One doubt appeared in the unity forums.

Will I be infringing rights if I sell these assets without the playmaker extension.

Alex, can you please clear my doubt?

Hi,

 This would be a very good initiative indeed.

 As long as playmaker assets are not redistributed, you will be fine. A lot of content on the asset store rely on other packages and the simply mention it in bold and red. So if your package requires Playmaker, do not put it in your package, simply stipulate it's required.

bye,

 Jean

I've taken a note of your interests. I'll definitely try to do these next month.

I think there would be a lot of interest for that.

The target audience is primarily artists and modelers that want to be able to throw down something simple and populate it with their assets, PlayMaker already has that audience and cheap assets that will speed up or simplify their goals even further would be very useful.

Heck, I know how to use PM and would probably be interested in the packages just to see how someone else does things with it.

Well you got it. This month the kit is a clone of famous (infamous?) Angry Birds with a interesting anti climax. I'm still thinking what to do next month. Let me know if you have any suggestion.

Hmm yeah, what I had trouble with was a good, reusable system for conversation screens and interactions between shops and characters. I ended up creating one but its kind of clunky. A nice polished conversation manager would be pretty useful, packaged with a primitive rpg.

Hi, I have been reading this with great intrest.

Possibly you have seen my topic on using daz studio to create game characters?

Adventure guy 2.5D

Here is a link to a free character created by myself using only the free ani-blocks that come with daz.

https://www.box.com/s/mppy38c7toe0c1swjncm

You must only crop these images from within your sofware choice.

Once cropped the file size goes down quite a bit.

This character is the genesis model figure.

Here is Mech_Girl 2D

Try them out please
