Polly: Game Engine with Anim8or Support
« on: May 08, 2008, 04:47:36 am »

Polly is an OpenGL base game engine that has direct Anim8or support.  In the near future the source will be available under to GPL license.  Written by Nicolaas.  http://www.irio.co.uk/index.php?page=polly

I haven't had time to try it yet so if you do let us know!

A user friendly game engine and a user friendly compatible 3d modeller?  :o
Now that is going to be a winning combination.  ;D
I may even get back into game making when Polly is ready for public download.  ;)

Yea the website looks awesome I cant wait till it comes out. Now I know that I am getting a little ahead of myself (and I mean alot) but when it is complete I smell a Anim8or Newb Game Project coming on (that is just an idea and we need to get the movie done first but it sound good to me :D)

Wow! This might be even more successful than Cre8or! Looking forward to seeing it.

Well right now Cre8or's at a point where nothings happening, so I would prefer something like this to come up. From the screen shots it looks much better than what Cre8or can do.

Cool! Nice to see that people are interested =)

Even though I don't really have too much time working on Polly, I'll try to get out a working user-friendly version this summer. I updated to version 0.08 yesterday (check out http://www.irio.co.uk/index.php?page=polly_history ), which contains quite alot of graphical improvements. However, one of the most important things, character movement from anim8or, is not yet implemented. This is one of the major things that needs to be implemented when I release version 0.10 for the evil public.

Anyway. If you guys take a look at the screenshot history, you'll notice an ugly model of a spider-like monster with bump mapping. This dude (modelled by a 3d coder who doesn't know modelling) is bump-mapped with a normal map / specular lightning / diffuse / ambient light, all values defined in anim8or.

When version 0.10 is released, I'll also add a tutorial on how two create animated bumpmapped anim8or models and how to write polly-scripts to give them behaviour, let them kill or flee or just
relax.

.. and stuff.

Any help / comments / thoughts / models / beer would be appreciated!

This topic really can't be dead, It's too important!


I have to say....those graphics are xbox level, man. (The first one)

It doesn't need much more to get to 360, though!

I can't play the video at all, it starts playing, but before it shows anything, it stops... it is like if its duration was 0.000001 seconds :/
Anyway. Great engine, keep up the good work :thumbs up:

I was able to watch the full video using VLC player :o I couldnt listen anything though.

This engine looks awesome :D! some pictures look like taken from half life 2, or farcry, and the engine looks like the Crysis sandbox editor :B an excellent work!
 
I would really like to know some especifications regarding the graphics ::)
will there be a poly limit for the models?
is it going to be able to import anim8or scenes, figures, etc? :P
also, some pictures make me think there is glow enable :O!
and for last, will I need a monster pc for casting shadows and Sun lightrays? I am sorry if I am asking too much right now xD but I really wanna try it out ;D!

~YiHaHoi!!!~

Will there be enough menus to allow a decent polished game to be made WITHOUT scripting?...

I don't think there will be much a problem with scripting, it looks simple enough for people to understand, and even if somebody finds it hard, I'm sure somebody will make example codes.
