If you were still in the conceptual stage of developing a game, could you realistically switch over to it from Unity?

                God I hate nu-pixel art so much. It's not even that the game looks like shit, I bet I would play this and have fun.
                But it's just, such shit compared to regular doom, this looks like a nice mod. Compare that to picrel, and it's clear that Doom has so much better composition/detail than this. Like those walls, no Doom map has walls that look like this, because it looks so bad. The ground is just 5 pixels and looks so ugly, again, no Doom map looks like that.

          Posts like that annoy me because I fell for similar memes when i was younger trying to make games and i wasted a lot of time doing that as a beginner.
          The best way to learn programming is to just make shitty broken stuff using really well documented engines like unity or unreal even if its utter shit you learn a TON(doesnt mean you should release your shit projects on the internet, they are for yourself) and then some years after that you can move on to obscure open source engines or making your own.

          Number 1 thing to do to learn/get good at something is to just make shit even if it turns out shit, even if its using awful practices like copy pasted repeating code etc main thing is to stick with making stuff and dont let the shittiness discourage you but see it as freeing that you can make something comically awful but no one will know. Its gonna get boring at times too but stick with it

      Well, now that Unity has gone to shit, experienced devs are now recommending Godot for 2D.

      Basically the main reason why people weren't adopting Godot was because it was emulating Unity which everyone was using so people up until now had no reason to jump. Anytime people asl "why not Godot over Unity?" the answer is always "Unity has a bigger user base"

          I get the feeling that people who want to make 3D games turn toward whatever has the best resources (e.g. tutorials, free or paid-for assets, etc.), and that's Unity and Unreal. I don't think many have even tried using Godot, so there's not many examples available

          because to even attempt to make a 3d game, you have to have at least basic knowledge of the "industry standard" which Godot doesn;t support natively like FBX support.

        Man, I fucking hate this game. Not because it's bad but because it has like no fucking variety. Every game plays out the exact same. I got 5 hours out of it before I went "okay, this is kinda boring" and for a 18 dollar game that's shit tier value. Took me like 12 hours to 100% which was really boring to do.

        Was a really good game within those 5 hours though excluding how obnoxious some of his game design choices were. If Godot can pull that off I would say it's pretty good

    Not a single game aside from the Sonic Colors remaster has been made using this engine. It's shit

      That's the impression I'm getting. Generally, if something is good it's made for a specific purpose and people naturally pick it up for that reason, while Godot seems to just have been made for the sake of being made while lacking a real core purpose that isn't already covered by other engines.

        The only reason it's popular is because is FOSS. It doesn't have any other feature that make it stands on its own. People are much better just using Unreal for 3D and GameMaker for 2D.

            It's that simple. I don't give a shit about gays who say C/C++ has to say about game engines, and that's a lot of people here, sorry

            its a performant language and industry standard for that reason, im not trying to be some elitist dickhead about it, if you use a slower language you're sabotaging yourself in the long run

            I'm not interested in developing an engine. Why is that hard to understand. I want to make a game. If I have to pay 5% of royaltie for a better one, I'll fucking just do it.

            you dont have to but if you really needed to you have that option whereas unityfags had to put up with broken shit and wait an eternity for unity to get off its ass and fix something that could have been done easily by community members or yourself
            and you're not going to avoid having to code your own stuff anyways so its no good for you to use user friendliness and spoonfeeding as a crutch cause eventually you'll have to solve your own shit and you wont be up to it because you've been pampered the whole way trough and now you fail where it counts
            if you still want to suck proprietary cockware then theres other options anyways

            godot can't do 3D though. Which 3D engine will replace Unity in the long run for indies?

            ive already seen godot do 3d multiple times what the fuck is it with you people? what exactly CANT it do on 3d?

              A lot of professional indie games and successful titles with no problem for running have horrible coding (not yandev levels of course) and simple languages. A big problem a lot of people don't seem to understand is that depending of what you are doing, there's literally no reason to sweat about the details. Chances are that you won't even need that complex stuff. If you do need, just use unreal.

                Works the same way as porting to another console. You just glue them together.
                Instead of you using the library you was using to render, you just use another and write more code to use that new library.

                Instead of rendering triangles/shaders using whatever framework they used, they instead call the native engine features that do that. With Unreal, you probably need to build the engine as a library in order to use it like that.

            I think anything using a substantial amount of their code has to include the foss license, at least for that portion of the project. It's not as aggressive as copyleft licenses, but something being foss doesn't mean you can just do whatever under most licenses. You could theoretically make an open source project and forbid anyone from copying it, although I imagine that wouldn't go well.

                Godot can do that but you will need to pay for getting it ported, just like 99% of indie devs do regardless of engine, since porting to one console is complex, let alone multiple consoles.

                If there are finished games out there in godot, there's no reason to not recommend it for 2D. Even when it's the best current option.thinking that way is just creating excuses for why it didn't work for you personally.

      This is a well known problem with Godot 4. The Bullet physics engine was removed in the last version of 3.x and the default godot physics are notoriously bad. There's a high probability that Jolt will end up being the default engine in the future, but for now you can install it from the asset library. This is a big deal though because Jolt was the physics engine that powered Horizon Call of the Mountain so this can only be a good thing.

        i will keep shilling and defending godot from retarded stupid criticisms and i will gladly kneel as soon as someone gives me some valid criticism, cause most people saying
        >godot cant, doesnt, etc are just spouting wishy washy dribble based purely on speculation and some assurance that godot MUST be bad for one reason or another even though the majority of these people have likely never touched it in their whole lives and are just boomers stuck in unity refusing to learn anything else because of tribalism, people say godot cant 3d yet i always see 3d godot games, then they'll say
        >oh but it probably cant do open world, etc
        and keep moving the goalpost because they need to desperately prove to themselves that their god (unity) is better
        and if you're gonna be a proprietary cockware sucker anyways you may as well use unreal cause like i already said unity is unremarkable with its only strong point being a large community spoonfeeding each other tips, something that is not INHERENT in the unity engine and that any other community can have, and in the case of godot the only reason it doesnt have a large community that rivals unity (its getting there) is because people have been using unity this whole and wouldnt move their asses to an objectively better engine because they're scared and they're comfortable in unity because they already took the time to learn it and its all that they know just like melee and sf2/3 boomers

          If you're doing 3D, use Unreal. Godot is lacking features. If you don't really like Unreal, then my next choice would be Flax Engine. But I'd just take the Unreal pill tbh.

          unreal pill is good for a two project setup, first to get it to work and the second to fix the unreal engine slopware look that is starting to become common.

    Using a profiler and only doing what absolutely needs to be done is half assing it though. I'd argue being a good programmer is all about half assing it in the sense that you don't want to put any extra time or effort into anything you don't have to if the end result that ultimately won't make a meaningful difference. You certainly don't want to waste time optimizing code that is only going to run once every 3 minutes.

    Your shitty 2D indie pixel sidescroller doesn't need to be written in C++. It's good enough to write 90% in GDscript and then 10% in C# for the bits that are actually executed constantly. The end product is still going to run fine on a toaster. If you write it in C++, it's going to be way more time consumer to write, more error prone and harder to debug.

    If you can't at least prototype in godot, you'll never make a game. The engine is pretty good.
    Light too. It's more than enough for a 2D game or a non slop 3D. Unreal should be the go to if you want hardcore graphics and a lot of shit going on the screen in 3D.

      its stockholm syndrome with proprietary crapware company, eg; microsoft winblows 11

      Im retarded but

      If i make my game in godot does that mean all my assets, my game itself, and my code are all FOSS?

      NO
      some foss licenses like the gpl require forks to be foss and include the same license but this is done to keep the software and its contributions free for the public and to prevent corporations from making bank off of other people's work
      this does NOT extend to products made with those programs, like if i make 3d assets with a gpl program my assets are my own, if i was to fork the source of that program i'd be obligated to open source that fork
      /g/fags like to say that Godot and OpenBSD are cucked because of their licenses wich let people do whatever the fuck they want with the software, so godot's license can be considered "cucked" but they're missing the point of the engine, its cucked by necessity because if it was gpl then all the games (software) made with it would have to be gpl as well since they would be a redistribution of the engine and would thus defeat the whole point of having a foss engine for people to use
      openbsd is just cucked for no good reason other than the dev is a cuck wich is funny
      i probably missed something but your game is entirely yours and you dont need to worry about royalties or any of that crap

          Tweening animations is just built into 2D spritework in Godot. So if you want animations and have key frames you can automatically interpolate and it looks very nice. Gamemaker you will have to make more frames by hand or program your own interpolation software.

          There is no reason to use gamemaker over godot is the point. I'm sure they are exactly equivalent if you make tetris or frogger but why would you even bother in the first place if you can just start with Godot since they are both extremely easy to start with anyway.

      he seems to understand the importance of keeping things FOSS wich i like, even setting up their own console porting organization so as to not rely on others because of some proprietary shit, on the other hand he seems to be doing too many things at the same time but, the engine is coming along nicely so its not a big deal, it just means that rather than hyperfocusing on one thing only he keeps everything balanced in terms of progress and development, wich is probably a good thing

      He's an autist that never leaves the house and works on coding like 18 hours a day. One of those asexual types that are pedantic about single lines of code while writing a 30 page guide about a feature no one asked for.

      Usually the best programmers but I bet he never even talked about sex a single time in his life, let alone lose his virginity. He probably doesn't even know if he is straight or gay.

      this sounds like a good thing
      also even if he was a gay, he cant keep other people from forking godot and unfagging it, wich is what i love about foss software, there is no trust involved or any of that bullshit and if some trannies ruin a software chads can just fork it and make it straggot software again

        This is a well known problem with Godot 4. The Bullet physics engine was removed in the last version of 3.x and the default godot physics are notoriously bad. There's a high probability that Jolt will end up being the default engine in the future, but for now you can install it from the asset library. This is a big deal though because Jolt was the physics engine that powered Horizon Call of the Mountain so this can only be a good thing.

      Get real.

      >>not exclusive to godot
      Unity? Unreal? LMAO. Nah bro, Godot's completely cracked open and is quite easy to modify. It's part of the reason updates happen so frequently.
      >>only one actually compiles well and it's not a "programming language"
      Yeah.
      >>all high level code is easy
      Yeah. And Godot's slightly autistic with it's "Scene" nonsense.
      engine has this
      Yeah.

      engine has this
      Yeah. Godot's documentation ain't ideal either.

      I'm willing to say Godot's got some issues.Godot bros need to be real about the garbage.

      But Godot's certainly better than Gamemaker. So 2D wise, it WILL win out. Because Gamemaker's gotten less usable as time has gone on. And it's really fucking slow. And unstable, I've lost entire levels due to corruption errors.
      Godot's a bit unstable, but man it's fast, it's flexible, it's got alotta tools and generally better coding structure than GM.

      3D still fucking eats shit tho.

      Godot has a learning curve. Scenes (Their word for fucking prefabs) are fucking weird and autistic, so you might need more than 2 days to learn. So... up to you. In the long run, use Godot tho.

      Godot can't do that stuff. Which in the end of the day is not that much of a huge deal since most serious devs pay for porting to consoles as it is a bureaucratic task that needs some refinement/work.

        Anonymous

        For real. Porting to consoles is a pain in the ass for Unity because you gotta do everything manually.
        Meanwhile Gamemaker, you just change platform and it works, save files, console specific features, everything. Might need to do the bare minimum of defining control scheme and achievements/activities, but that's it. Takes 10% of the effort compared to Unity.

        • 2 weeks ago

          In gamemaker it is easier but there's no such thing as "click aaand done". For any engine. It's a process that requires time, even UT took a bunch of time before porting it to switch, despite being GM (although toby was using a older version, but that still is not that much of a pain to update it to newer ones). Export to consoles is complex and godot can't do that due to literally legal issues: https://docs.godotengine.org/en/stable/tutorials/platform/consoles.html . You can have your godot game on consoles but you have to follow different steps.

            I'm aware, it's mostly optimization and adjusting gameplay to smoothly work on console (no forceclosing the game like in UT's case), then fixing all the resulting bugs because certification is a bitch.

    Godot is still not well suited for AA+ games.
    The only chance is that it will soon go the Linux or Blender route thanks to Unity fucking up and will get funding and help from major corporations who will finally want to have a free tool to make games with.

    It took Blender some good 10 years before it finally became the industry standard, used by professionals all over the world, maybe Godot will catch up to commercial engines in few years.

      >it should have some parity with blender visual shader
      That's pretty hard to do since nothing is standardized, and blender's EEVEE shaders aren't really meant for very high performance real time. Things like procedural noise are quite expensive to compute and wouldn't be suitable for a game engine.

      • 2 weeks ago
        Anonymous

        I should have worded better, parity as in nodes that execute similar features, there is no built-in node for light, so if you want to modify how light behaves on the model have to write your own shader using Juan custom language, there is stencil buffer, and there is no built-in color ramp.
        I don't a 1:1 implementation of EEVEE, that would be insane, but, having similar nodes would make my life much easier.

          you have to constantly remind these dorks about the benefits of foss software, such as FORKING projects

          This is why YOU ALWAYS GO OPEN SOURCE

          NEVER RELY ON PROPERITARY SOFTWARE

    What's stopping Blender and Godot joining forces to combine their funds together and make Godot the Blender for the gaming industry?

    I don't care about Godot until the big devs make games in it.
    Excited for the next three months, to see if they fully commit because it's great, or go back saying Godot is an unpolished junk.
    Feels good being an NPC who doesn't bother to think for himself.

      Name one successful studio that has moved or will ever move to Godot instead of a battle tested engine?

              They're not saying they will be moving to Godot. Just moving to a different engine, that most likely will be Unreal if they go with it.

    you may think I'm just shitting on godot but I'm actually worried. this makes unreal the only good engine on the market.

      I wanted Unity to fucking die but honestly expected it to happen naturally due to Godot being good enough to beat it. This situation indeed sucks.

      Godot is a scam.

      The devs let the community do all the work while they just take the money.

      Unity won't die. It's most likely getting purchased by Microsoft or some shit and their devs will treat the new owners as their saviors of Unity (Because they'll rollback/implement royalties instead).

        Unironically the best thing that can happen at this point. Which tells how fucking bad the situation is.

        Buyout is genuinely the only way it survives, it's impossible for them to rebuild trust with current management, so they need someone with existing "good enough" trust to take over.

        according to the thread it was made specifically to support godot though.

      this is so fucking tiresome
      as with everything you have to do it all yourself
      the only right answer is to make your own damn engine

      because monopolies are bad and nothing is stopping unreal from going the same way. I hope not because I'm a shitter that relies on blueprints. but having an opensource option is always the way to go.

        You can strip pretty much everything off the UE renderer, it's just a matter of tweaking the defaults.

        UE also has hot reload, you can iterate every 5 seconds.

    Not as mature as unity or unreal to be sure, but it is getting there. With unity shitting itself it has a real shot of becoming like blender.
