Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

I am working on my very first sci-fi FPS, but thought about implimenting some realistic graphics to the game as well-like EA DICE's Frostbite 3 Engine.

I am working on my very first, sci-fi FPS, but thought about implementing some realistic graphics to the game as well like EA DICE's Frostbite 3 Engine. Any suggestions and tips on how to do this? Very grateful for any helpful response :)

After you've learned level design and all that, there are a few things to look out for.

Obvious:

make sure you have great assets, and high quality textures are of the utmost importance

Less obvious:

  • make sure your materials aren't too shiny or too reflective. very few things in the real world are shiny or reflective

  • don't make your levels too bright. in the real world usually there are only a few lights at any given time.

  • bump up gravity a bit or make sure your object are approximately the correct weight. videogames tend to have floaty physics.

  • quality, not quantity. you only need a few gun assets, a few bush assets, etc.

  • normal maps. good ones. on just about everything.

  • level of detail is your friend. it takes a little effort to use it, but it's very much worth it.

Your question is vague and your skill level isn't specified, so it's hard to make a detailed answer, but hopefully a couple things there help!
