I am struggling a bit on how to format a “book” in blog terms. What is the best way for me to get information across. One of the big goals of this site is to guide a beginner through the entire process of creating a game. At the same time however, as I come across problems, interesting things or just simply something strikes my fancy, I want to post it here as well. This leads to a serious continuity problem, especially for someone just starting out.
As a proposed solution, I am going to keep things as they are, but “on topic/ordered” posts are going to be organized by chapters around a common theme. That way a person can come in and view content on a chapter by chapter basis, even though a chapter is actually just a series of posts. So, there will be a link on the right hand side Chapter 1/ Chapter 2/ etc… as well as each post being tagged by which chapter it belongs to. Hopefully this will provide a solid structure to follow along by.
In addition, for each video posting, I will attempt to merge all chapter video together into a single video for people that want to consume it all at once.
I am currently working on chapter 1, which shows the entire pipeline in action. Setting up your modeler, creating a model in Wings 3D, exporting to Blender, texturing and animating, the exporting to Unity. By the end of chapter 1, you should be able to get your content from nothing to Unity with ease.
