I wanted to post a quick update since I hadn’t in awhile about the progress of the game. As you can see from the screen above I have decided to go the 3D route and abandon 2D. The change came about due to a few considerations, mostly that I have been dabbling in 3D for a few years now and I am MUCH better at it than 2D. While technically it is harder to code, I believe the time saved in the art creation will make up for the additional coding time I’ll encounter.
It took a few weeks to get everything I had previously done in the 2D version of 1st & 10 Football over to the 3D version but I have now already eclipsed in this new version where I was in the 2D version.
Currently work is mainly focused on the data structure of a “play”. My desire is to create a structure that can be stored in external files such as XML and then the community can use those as a template to create their own plays and import them into the game.
Happy Holidays to everyone and here’s too exciting things to come in 2018!
