To anyone actually following my blog and wondering where I have been and why I haven’t been posting, yes, the rumors were true…I was abducted by aliens!
LOL, actually my laptop died and sourcing new hardware was a bit of a challenge. 😦
As it stands I am now running an old Dell DC7600 32 Bit CPU & 2 GB of Ram… Well beggars can’t be choosers and at the moment it’s the best I can do, I’m grateful it runs.
I am running my FAVORITE Linux Distro (Mint).
On the upside I was pleasantly surprised to see that Blender (Logic Blocks & Python) works just fine! 🙂
I normally work in Blender for modeling items for 3D printing (I have designed a few products that I hope to show you guys in the next few months) and creating assets to play with in Unity3D. I was aware that Blender had a gaming engine but I had never tried it before. Having worked with the BGE (Blender Game Engine) a little I discovered it was actually a lot easier and faster to rig up a functional game in blender than I had thought! In fact I really recommend that you give it a try for yourself!
If you want a great tutorial on using the BGE to make a game head over to BornCG’s channel on Youtube for an excellent set of tutorials.
Here’s one to get you started but I really recommend you head over to you Youtube and subscribe to the BornCG channel!
