I have now got the third person controller working though I still need a rigged character for it which I can do later, right now I’m focusing on the core game functionality. I’m now trying to connect an on screen button with my enter/exit car script so you can switch between walking to driving. So far everything is working pretty well and things have been steadily progressing. Ill put screen shots below. Oh and I’ve managed to export the financial spawn building from the PC game to 3ds max and that will be added to the city once its been optimised for mobile. So far though the game runs smoothly on my nexus 5 at full HD resolution
Pictures and updates below:
I haven’t posted anything in awhile but I thought people might be interested to know what my current project is. I have started up again in unity, this time with the goal of re-creating APB Reloaded in the Unity engine, first making it run on PC just like the normal game (except ofcourse without the servers and multiplayer, atleast for now), and then I will make it mobile and touch optimised for a port to android and possibly iOS. Yes that’s right, APB on your phone! Obviously with controller support in mind also. I have no idea how long this will take me but in two or three days I have managed to extract the 3D model of my Bashida Rapier car from the game with the textures, preparing it for a glitch free import to unity (which wasn’t easy), I then made a script to be able to exit and enter the car as a 3rd person character, with basic player and vehicle movement controls.
However I have now decided to start again with the base of Edys Vehicle Physics pack so the cars have better control and response when you drive them, it now feels much more realistic. Now all I need to do Is add in my 3rd person character with the script to enter and exit the car and that will be my basic movement around the game finished. Now my plans for the future are to download the maps (waterfront and financial) and import them into unity also, which will not be an easy task and if it is too difficult I will probably resort to just modelling the buildings from scratch and making the map as accurate as possible to how it is in the game.
Work so far:
If you have any suggestions for the game or tweaks you think should be made to the current APB, leave a comment with your ideas, and I will also take suggestions for the next car models to be added, etc. Thanks
Also as a sidenote, the plans for this are purely for personal use, in the future if this goes somewhere with development and there is enough interest I may send this on to gamersfirst if they see potential in it or whoever holds the copyright for the game but right now I’m not going to be distributing it.
Android phone not showing all files (if any) in my computer when plugged into the usb? read on for a possible fix, this solved a problem for me and my nexus 5.
I just bought and recieved my new Nexus 5, but unfortunately I had to search for hours the best way to transfer files and songs from my PC to my Nexus 5, because It just would not show up in my computer when it was plugged in and people were saying they stopped suppporting USB Mass Storage mode in the latest update and all sorts of things, but I have now figured it out.
My phone would connect to my PC in Camera (PTP) mode, but I could only see two folders available and couldnt add or remove files. So for this to work, first on you nexus 5, go to settings, storage, click on the three dot option button at the top right, then USB Computer Connection. Then set your device to MTP Mode if it is not already.
1 – Go to your PC, ofcourse making sure your Nexus 5 is connected with the usb cable, I am running windows 7 but hopefully this will work for you. In windows 7, click on the start button and search for “device manager”. In windows 8, right click the bottom left corner of the screen in desktop mode, and press device manager or search device manager from the usual search box (CTRL-C?)
2 – Find where your android device is and click on the dropdown arrow next to it if there is one as shown (1.) In the picture below
3 – Either right click on the ADB interface and click “update driver software” or left click and then press the update driver software button at the top of the window, as indicated by (2.) in the picture below (and No I have no idea why my (LG) Nexus 5 is showing up as a samsung device, I uninstalled the samsung drivers but its still there so oh well)
4 – Click “Browse my computer for driver software”
5 – Click “Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer” and select “USB Composite Device” from the list, and press next.
Your nexus 5 should now show up in my computer after about 10 seconds of the process being completed depending on your PC and how long it takes to update the drivers.
Hopefully this helps you as much as it helps me c:
