Menu Designing [Day 22]

Day 22, with some progress made to the Main Menu it's really starting to look a lot nicer.

+Added Menu Graphic
+Added External links
~Updated power button animation
*Fixed Resolution Scaling [Still Ratio scaling issues]


This SVG image is assigned to the Panel.
The three external links will open your default browser to their scripted links.

All designs are placeholder and never the finished look. I'm just learning and practicing, improvements made by the day.

Future Plan:
•Add dialog text when hovering over buttons
•Improve upon the present UI graphics
•Add more animations and SVG graphics.
•Make a character creator
•Update Game with UI for "money" and "stats"

UI Dev [Day 21]

Day 21, got the first UI animations working. First time using the Animator tool, a tool which allows multiple animations to play under certain conditions.

+Added Power Button Animation
+Add version number UI
+Added new fonts
~Update UI fonts


With the game being a tycoon design, my plans are to make a focus on UI elements and design.

I still need to finish the v2.0 saving/loading system

I need to create more vectorized art specifically for UI elements

I need to get a working prototype of the character creator system.

Once the character creator is made, I can use the parts to design animations.

Coding Challenge [Day 20]

Day 20, today was just a simple yet frustratingly simple improvement, but a development in my practice of the C# programming language and Unity3D scripting library.

*Fixed Load option in Main Menu



Now to finish the games saving and loading system I'll need to develop an always load players loading slots, then allow the user GUI to decide their saves and overwrites.

I still need to add some gameplay mechanics so that this isn't just a tech demo

I have plans on developing another scene for the character creator, which I'll need to create separate assets for, such as arms, heads, hairs, facial hairs, clothing, ect..

I need to create some more art assets to fill the game

I need to create a new world RNG system

and much much more..... I can't wait :)

Scripting Difficulties [Day 17]

Day 17, small but very difficult programming progress made.

+Added visual Experience
~Updated Save/Load system


After the past two days, I was finally able to get a script that modifies TextMesh Pro text, it took some assistance from the Unity Discord community.

I'm currently working on having a working save/load system, but now that I have scripted text UI, I can now test when it works or doesn't work.
I also need to add a new animation for [Press F] for when it is pressed.
I need to add more elements to the Main/Pause menu.
