The easiest way is to start with a simple demo, like “what could you do with an NPC?” and find ways to extend the basic demo into something more complex like interacting with enemies, or dealing with different kinds of quest mechanics.
Once you have a concept in place you can start the quest writing process.
If your game has very small missions, you may want to create a level of granularity around every NPC or quest in the game.
If you have multiple quests that play out over time, you can use a timer to set the level of granularity for every NPC or quest. Use these timers to test how different parts of your quest work together.
I can’t see my character, what do I do?
Your character or NPC has been placed in a particular scenario, or perhaps they are inside of an environment that is changing. To see your character there is usually a key in your inventory (in the case of NPCs, this is also called the character sheet).
From the scene menu the player can click on the character to see their current location. If the player doesn’t have a key or their character hasn’t been placed in a particular place, they can click somewhere else and use the game cursor or mouse to display some information about their current position.
Do I have to draw anything if I just want to see my character?
No. In the demo, the player character is an example of a “static character”, which means that the character does not move. This also means the player does not have to draw anything.
Can I make a map (a 3D drawing of the entire level, rather than the map of a town)?
Yes, you can map the entire game world. In our demo you could create various rooms, streets, and rooms in the exterior world. The “world map” can either be set up by the script or added to the editor (there are some examples listed here) when you export your level from the “scene map”.
The map can be used to show the world and allow other users to travel between the scene map and the scene map. It isn’t a necessity to use a map, but it is something worth experimenting with.
What about the map/editor? Does it work similarly to the scene map?
The map is used to display the terrain, the players location, and the environment around the player. It also provides a list of items and enemies in the
