Hey r/gamedev, I’ve finally got something to contribute to this sub, and I wanted to say a huge thank you to this whole community. I started out knowing absolutely nothing about coding or art-ing, and I recently released my first “real” game, largely thanks to the resources and community here.
Thanks a bunch, guys. Keep making those games.
Today I continued studying Maya and made the hardest model that I ever did before, learning a lot of new tricks and methods in the process. I made the model based on another great tutorial and color coded it with sample materials so that the developer could switch materials at will without much worry in 6 different areas of the game object.
I’ve Recorded just over 100 common phrases in the hopes of providing any interested Devs with random, last minute or even just place holder assets for their projects. Below are links for a preview of every line in the pack & the pack itself.
All requests, suggestions and feedback are welcome & encouraged!

Fellow developer here, I recently released some tracks on bandcamp which are the first I have ever composed. They range in origin and genre, some were made for projects and others were just impromptu.
You can check them out on the link below, completely free under the Creative Commons Attribution Licence (unless you want to pay). Do whatever with them, it would be cool for them to find a home and if you would leave a comment to let me know how I did! www.play-javu.bandcamp.com
In this Unity tutorial we’ll be going over how we can import our rigged model with animations from Blender into Unity. We’ll be exporting an FBX file from Blender then importing that file along with it’s textures into Unity. We’ll then take a look at how to prepare your mesh by taking a look at the import, rig and animation settings. For this mesh we created there animations back to back so we’ll be going into the animation editor to create three separate animation clips.
Once we have our clips ready we’ll then take a look at setting up our animator controller for use in Mecanim. Adding transitions between each animation clip to have a smooth realistic motion between the various states. We’ll then add in a C# script to control the slashing animation so that whenever we left click the slash animation will play then quickly return back to the “idle” state once completed.

In this Blender tutorial we’ll be going over the basics of creating a rigged animation for our first person mesh. This is part three of our tutorial series and this time we’ll start animating our character using a knife to simulate a slashing attack along with an idle and defensive state. We’ll go over how to rig the knife to use constraints to connect to our armature then take a look at how to pose for various frames of our animation.

In this Blender tutorial we’ll be learning how to rig up our first person mesh that we created in our previous video. We’ll be backtracking a bit and going back into MakeHuman in order to utilize a rig perfectly suited to our mesh to avoid the hassle of aligning bones up with our mesh. This process will ensure our rig is perfectly aligned with our mesh and is already “weighted” to provide muscle deformations. Once we’ve created a rig within MakeHuman we’ll jump back into Blender and start setting up our mesh again and start creating additional bones that will serve as “handles”.
We’ll create one extra bone in the wrist area for both arms and to save time we’ll mostly be focusing on the left hand. The same can be done for the right hand so there’s no need to waste time doing the same things twice. So with this new bone we’ll make sure we detach it from the rig then use this bone as the offset. We should now be able to move this hand entirely by just moving the “handle”. Now with that done we’ll then select the handle followed by the forearm bone and use “Inverse kinematics” to enable us to control the entire arm using the handle alone. So now when we pull on the handle the entire arm should move realistically which makes it much easier to animate with less moving of individual bones required.
Finally we’ll use bone constraints to curl the fingers up. We’ll also lock the rotation of each finger bone so that the Y and Z axis are not usable leaving just the X axis in which the fingers can rotate. With this axis alone we can curl up the fingers just fine. So using bone constraints we’ll use “copy rotation” in order for the entire finger to adjust in relation to the other bones moving. So now we can rotate the top finger bone which will result in the last two bones to curl up in response. So this process might be a bit daunting at first and a bit tedious and time consuming but once you’ve done it a few times it becomes very easy to do and best of all it create an amazing rig.
