hi there! Yes, this uses Oculus Integration. The Grabbing / Grabbable mechanic is a custom solution, but the Oculus SDK is used for things like playspace tracking, camera movement, hand tracking and things like that. I've tested this on Unity 2018 and 2019 and all works fine there. 

The only thing you may need to do is upgrade the included the materials if you're using the LWRP . Otherwise some of the textures will be bright pink.

Definitely! I'll be uploading a new build soon, and hoping to get on asset store asap. I welcome the assistance! I'm definitely looking to keep extending this and have some interesting features in the works.

Awesome, thanks for letting me know!

Hi Wyatt_Curtis,

I've scanned the files using avast and haven't seen anything come up. I think your windows machine is just being cautious. I would recommend giving it a scan just to ease your mind :) You can also run the game from within the itch.io app.

Feel free to reach out on Discord as well if you need any assistance.

Awesome! Glad you were able to get it to work. If you want to make a shortcut, right click on the game and click "Create Shortcut". You can then move that shortcut around without breaking the game. The itch.io app is useful as well as it will keep the game updated. I update the game pretty often with new features and bug fixes, so that may be worth looking into. Anyways, have fun!

Hmm.. I haven't seen that error before. After you extract the .zip file try just running "Super Voxel World.exe" from that directory. If you move it (instead of making a shortcut) it may not work. 

Check out the Discord channel as well  if you're still stuck. I'm on there pretty frequently, and others are there as well that may be able to help.

Hi sandstorm60. The mod exporter is only if you want to create mods in Unity. To play the game you can just run the Super Voxel World.exe file. You can also use the itch.io app to download and play it from there as well. Let me know if you get stuck. Have fun!

Ah, good find. Looks like the new scaling animations are causing problems. On the bright side I can just disable them for now and everything should work properly again. On to 1.9.9! :P

Sorry, been out of town. But I posted a new version that fixes the piston and makes the door connectable to power / switches. Give it a shot!

In the next update you will be able to connect doors to batteries, switches, etc. If there is no wire connection you can operate them normally. If there is a connection, then it will only open if there is power supplied to it. 

I've got a fix coming up for pistons as well. Should be soon!

Ah, thanks! I'll take a look and I'm sure I can get that patched up.

There is currently no way to connect train tracks to an electrical device. You can use devices like a switch while riding a train track, but you'd have to have the player manually flip it while riding. The other option would be to try placing a pressure plate near where the player might ride, but I don't think they would be over the pressure plate long enough to fully open a door. I'll have to think on that one. 

I do have plans for speed boosts and brake sections for the train tracks; maybe there could be like a switch type track that electrifies whatever it's connected to. A better option might be a laser "trip wire" type thing where whenever a player crosses it acts as a switch of sorts. Then you could just have that where the player will cross it, and I think that would cover your use case?

Ah, I'll update it so that if you remove a dirt block,it will also remove any grass that is directly above it.  

Also, just fyi (and you may have already noticed this), when you are placing a block you can hold down the left mouse button and then "extend" the blocks outwards to place more than one block at a time. Can save you time if you're placing many blocks at once. 

I re-added the in-game code editor in this latest update (version 1.9.7). The button to open it is under World Settings -> "Open Code Editor". 

Exporting a mod through Unity3d is going to be more reliable and run faster, but writing JavaScript in-game is still novel and fun. I'll continue supporting the in-game editor if there continues to be interest in it. 

You should be able to at least run it, though at 4gb some levels will probably be a bit laggy, especially if there are lots of NPC's.  Are you offline or online when you're loading? And feel free to hop on Discord if you need help. People are usually on and eager to help out.

There isn't currently a way to seal off blocks or rooms, unfortunately. That does sound interesting, though. I'll have to see how other games handle this and see if I can come up with a way. It probably wouldn't be that difficult to seal them from the top, but I'm not sure how I would handle if you were to open a door or window. That could get tricky. 

I will be adding a bit of physics to when you're underwater, and maybe a ship block / buoyancy block in a future update (similar to how the cockpit works for land / air vehicles). But that's all I've really got planned for water stuff so far. 

How are you moving the blocks? Are you using a moving platform, cockpit, or just placing them on the ground?  

There are 3 spawn point items - the checkered flag, a red flag, and a blue flag. The checkered flags act like  general checkpoints : if you run by one in Play Mode it will activate, and you will respawn there if you die. You can also you hold the 'K' button to teleport to the last one you touched. This is covered in the tutorial, which isn't quite live yet.

The red and blue flags work similarly, but only work for their respective faction. This is mostly useful for versus type games where you want the red team to spawn somewhere away from the blue team. So for example, you could have a tower defense game where it's red vs. blue. You would use the red and blue spawn flags to set your base locations, and then you can set the goal and wave spawner factions as well to make sure your team attacks the other side / doesn't attack you. 

Questions are good! Ask away. As for the door, I believe that hasn't been hooked up yet. The idea is that if you have it wired to something  then it will only open if it is powered. I'll add that to my list. Good catch.

Sure! You can attach blocks to the moving platform object, and the moving platform will move along any connected waypoints. You usually would want a minimum of two unless you're making a one-way trip. So for example, you could place two waypoints down (we'll call them 1 and 2) and connect Waypoint 1 to Waypoint 2, then have 2 connect back to 1 to create an infinite loop. This way your platform will keep going back and forth between these two waypoints.

You can change the speed and give it a delay time, or even make it "require power". So let's say you wanted to create a secret wall that slides up if you step on a pressure plate. You would connect a battery to a pressure plate, and then the pressure plate to the moving platform. Now whenever someone steps on the pressure plate it will power the moving platform allowing it to move towards the waypoint :


If you wanted to take this a step further, you could attach a separate waypoint to your moving platform, and then have your train track use that as part of it's track..


And now your train tracks will move up when someone steps on the plate. You could use this with motors, pistons, switches, etc - the possibilities are endless! 

You can connect the train tracks to waypoints and then move those around to create your track. Waypoints are these green spheres that only appear in  Edit mode. You can use them to create paths for NPC's, Moving Platforms, Wave Spawners, and in this case extend train tracks. 

So put down your train track and connect the green ball in the front to a new waypoint you set down somewhere in front of it. Then connect as many waypoints as you'd like from there and youll see the track update . When're done, connect the last one to the red ball to complete the loop. When you want to ride just look at the track and hit 'e'. 

Hopefully that makes sense. If not I can post a screenshot.  Thanks for the feedback. I'll be sure to include more about the tracks in a tutorial!

Cheers!

Hi there! Yes, you can set down multiple checkpoints in Edit Mode. You may also set one as your starting point (it turns blue). When you're in Play mode you can then teleport to the last checkpoint you've reached by holding 'k' or by clicking the respawn button from the menu.

The Platformer showcase world is a pretty good example of how this works. Just switch to Edit Mode and take a look at how they are positioned.  And if you're making a side perspective game there is another showcase deals with moving the camera around using the "2d" pickup. 

Have fun! Next update adds a bunch of new blocks / shapes, thrusters , and a cockpit so you can build flying contraptions. Not sure when it will be out yet, but stay tuned :)

Thanks for the comment, WashYourEyesTwice. I've been thinking about replacing the models with something a little less blocky / ubiquitous. The blocky models works great with the voxel aesthetic, but since these models are becoming quite common I can see some people thinking it's an asset flip or some other game. Maybe I'll release it with the current models and then once it leaves early access upgrade them a bit. We shall see!

Have fun! I've been working more on marketing stuff lately, but I expect to get back to more gameplay updates real soon!

Steam workshop integration is in the works! For the initial Steam release this will mostly be limited to maps, but modding  is a main priority and the Workshop seems like a nice option alongside the in-game sharing. Thanks for the comment!

Cool! Each object has a name and an id. So if you placed a "Rock" object down, that object would be "Rock 1". The next one you place is "Rock 2", etc. 

However, the code editor and JavaScript system is getting a pretty substantial overhaul, so I'd hold off on the JS stuff until I get the docs tidy. I typically post on the Discord channel about the more advanced stuff like the Code Editor, if you'd like to keep up to date.

 But to answer your question, in the future you'll be able to do stuff like this :

var rock = GameObject.Find("Rock 1");
// Launch Rock Into the Air
rock.AddForce(0, 1000, 0);

For Events (like OnClick, as you mentioned), you'd do something like this :

// Global Callback
function OnClick(obj) {
  if(obj.name == "Rock 1") { // Launch Rock Into the Air obj.AddForce(0, 1000, 0); } }

Thanks for the feedback wabsol! The Steam version will allow you to only accept people from your friends list.

But for the itch.io version I will add a button so that you can kick / ban players once they've entered your world. That should help.

Did you have anything in mind for how to create quests? Would you be ok with using JavaScript, or would you prefer an interface of some kind?

I'm the only developer and this is my first game :)

New guns will be in the Steam version :)

I've been thinking about a quest creator for a while, but I haven't come up with an easy way to let players create their own. I may just start with basic objectives (kill # enemies, collect # coins, reach x location, etc), and then see where we can go from there.

Unity3d!

Have you tried using the itch.io app? That might help if your download is being interrupted.

1. Yes, you will be able to set patrol points for placeable NPC's in the next update (1.8). You can use the NPC Spawner (red skull icon) to connect to Waypoints as well. I'm also working on adding a zombie NPC that spits acid, a fast/sprinting zombie, and a giant zombie, to add variety. 

2. You can connect waypoints to other waypoints so enemies can move as far as you'd like. You can even have them loop back. So if you have 3 waypoints, you can connect 1 to 2, 2 to 3, then 3 back to 1. This is how you make a railroad track as well.

3. Not sure I quite understand the question. I am going to redo the tutorial completely, though. For example, there is an electrical system where you can use the wrench to connect batteries, switches, motors, etc. It's really cool and hasn't really been explained yet.

Thanks again! Your feedback pushes me to get out updates more quickly :)

Hi there  grimdawn122. Sorry for the late reply, I've been on out of town and just got this notification.

To answer your questions :

1. Yes, definitely! Getting it polished and bug free is my main priority. I would also like to have a better tutorial in place before releasing to Steam EA as well.

2. I plan on launching themed, free updates. For example, a water update might add ships, pirate characters, and island set pieces. An FPS update might add more weapons, game modes, and enemy types. 

For the enemies, you can currently change the model, weapons, and faction, but there are more immediate plans to customize behavior, dialogue, and things of that nature.

3. Absolutely. There are already waypoints in place (see the FPS Tower Defense showcase world for an example), but I'm not so sure about specific animations. The goal is to have each piece be pretty modular. For example, the waypoints can be used for NPC routes, but they can also be used to create railroad tracks, and moving platforms.

4. I've thought about custom quests quite a bit, and I think that feature is farther off.  I just can't think of a good way to allow for quests other than "Kill X enemies" or "Reach This Destination", which seems limiting. I may end up adding some sort of scripting system so that advanced users can mod the system to their liking. If you have any ideas for this I'm all ears!

Thanks for the feedback, I really appreciate it! I'm on Discord and the community is pretty active there if you want to keep up to date.

Cheers,
JP

Thank you!!

Thanks for the video, Spotman!

Check out the new bow!

ok :)

Hey there,

The next update will have much better pathfinding, and you can even place down a wave spawner to create waves of enemies that will attack the player.  This will be a pretty big update, just need to polish some of the multiplayer functionality before I release it here.

Thanks for the message!
