(NEW) Turn Based Game


Let's create a turn based game, this time we're going to utilize tools and a lot of tricks to make our life easier on creating this game.

We're also going to cover topics such as Action Points & Xcom style, pathfinding (with 3d movement), multiplayer and later on AI.

 

This series is entirely from scratch, so you don't need to have follow any of my other turn based series prior to this.

Let's see how we can effortlessly create a grid on top of an already existing level

Let's detect where obstacles sit on our level

Let's add floors in our level

Let's make our nodes have different world positions while not violating the grid

Let's build the template for managing turns and phases

Data containers for players, both human and not

Let's create a new simplistic finite state machine for this game

Let's create variables that can be used withour relying onto references

Let's create our A* Pathfinder for our game

Quick fix for where we left off our pathfinder on the last video

Let's create a few interfaces for interacting with objects in our scene.

For the UI buttons to actually follow the world position, DO THIS: //rect is the rectangleTransform, not the normal transform! Vector2 pos = RectTransformUtility.WorldToScreenPoint(camera, targetPosition); rect.position = pos;
