we would like to introduce you in a new game development project called Drohtin.
Drohtin is a new multiplayer strategy game using jme3 engine.
During studies a friend and I decided to make our own strategy game. We both are experienced java developer looking for the challage to dev such a game.
So Drohtin is a game where you can build villages, produce resources, develop your culture, trade and what ever comes next to our mind =D
In order to do that we created some 3D Models using Blender and writing some code. So we are not that artist guys, so don’t be rude about the models.
Here you can see the mainmenu with different options.
You can already change some map options for singleplayer. In Options you can choose the language (englisch, german), the resolution and some other staff. In the right upper corner you see the online status. At the moment the server is not online. We are still developing the server. At the moment we are supporting message in main menu, start a multiplayer game and synchronise the map, the objects and there movements (more or less ).
After you click on Start Game the loading screen will guide you to the game.
There you will find a random generated map with some simple humans and a cart to found your city.
You can control the cart and move it to each place on the map. It will find the way by its own (based on the waypointsystem you see on the picture).
If you find the right spot for your village you can build the first building
The building shows up a little bit green. That means it is placed but the construction isn’t started.
The construction worker will level the ground and start to build the building.
After the center of your village is ready you are able to build more by using the build menu.
You can place all your buildings and the construction builder will transport resources (like bole or tent) to the places, level the places and build the building. Some buildings like the woodcutter produce resoureces like bole. After the building is ready a woodcutter human will walk to the building and start producing ressources. So he will look at a tree in the nearest forstest, cut the tree and so on.
That means we already have a working build system and a working resource production system.
We are still working on the whole resource production system to produce more kinds of resources in different building. But the foundation is there to expand this system.
So I hope Drohtin is an interessting project for you folk.
