Hi all.
I'd like to tell that Virtual World has been released.
Virtual world is a 3d multiplayer online game focused on building maps.
I've been working on this for a lot and I am glad it has now came to a point of release.
This version is a kind of demo. I didn't add a lot of features because a python rewrite is in progress.
I'd like to listen to your guys suggestion which hopefully can be implemented in the new version which is in the works.
For now though you can enjoy this version. I'll maintain the server and the client, but don't expect big features. Those will be in the python version.
If you guys are interested on trying this download the game here
I know I haven't provided many explanations about the game mechanics, but I think the documentation written in the readme  should help you in this regard.
Hope to see you guys there. And of course, happy building.
Special thanks go to my entire beta team which helped me a lot.

best regards
never give up on what ever you are doing.

2018-12-14 07:59:06

Well, Again, I am dumb. The server was working correctly, but it was not handling the request from the client. I think now it should work.

sorry for double posting. This time, you don't need to redownload, the client you've got should work fine.

Hi, if i might suggest some thing: i would like to exploar other maps. i see you can only go to other maps that you created and not maps that other people created. i understand that this is an early beta for the game, but it is a good game so far. keep up the good work!

is there a builder menu? ,  or you have to type things manually?

Thumbs up

2018-12-14 13:28:43

there is a builder menu. You activate it with b
@nicklas. Feel free to explain how this gives you the SBYW/BTB feel and in which way, maybe we can solve this.
@ashley, yeah I agree. I will code a menu which will parse all maps which can be accessed and allow people to travel through it..

an update has been released.
The client needs to be updated because I had to fix the sounds.
Also you can now use /joinmap this will bring a menu with all the maps and you just have to select the one where you want to go.
You can use in alternative /changemap mapname
Also I forgot. Feel free to join the skype group.

This game is awesome! I'm glad there's finally a 3D building game. One suggestion, can you add an option to hear the walking sound for a tile in the builder menu like in 2D platformer?
