STEEMBots - 252 and counting

in gamedev •  7 months ago

With a few days in forced exile from the internet (we were getting new service) the bot creation went into full production mode. From simple sketches to the final product we now have:

  • 6 Heads
  • 6 locomotion parts (Legs, tank tracks, helicopter blades, etc)
  • 7 Eye types.

This gives us a total of around 252 possible units that can be created! Our goal is to get to 10 of each category which should give you around 1000 possible combinations! Once these parts are all finalized we will begin animating them and then the game development really begins.

That sounds like a lot but its broken into the parts so its a few animations for each head, each eye set, and each locomotion. Its still a lot of work but no where near animating every possible combination.


As we were creating the robots we realized that each bot is really meant to be their own complete creation, and not something to be switched out for your favorite pieces once you have been given the bot. However, we still want to have a solid economy of sharing parts between users, so now the SteemBots will receive augmentations to their parts through the post generated loot boxes as well as new parts for future SteemBots. Users can equip and unequip various augments and sell those on the market as well as extra pairs of legs or heads.

This way your robot can grow and become what it was designed to become. @bflanagin will be posting about the process of creating the bots as well as the first 3D printed "toys" based on Phil.

Till next week. Keep liking, sharing, and supporting us and the other amazing projects on Fundition.

Why is @v-entertainment using katakana? I am Japanese Steemian.

To be honest, the banner is a place holder. My boys are both into the more popular aspects of Japanese culture and said it looked "Cool". That and the original bot designs were heavily influenced by Mech anime (Patlabor, and Gasaraki). We've changed the style since then and if you find it offensive, I apologize, but regardless we're working on a more proper banner now that the style changed.

i love the concept. i also prefer these bots over 2d steemmonster drawings.

when you say 'ledger' do you mean that all your data will be saved on the blockchain?

Thanks @roundbeargames,

Yes and no.

The market place where people will buy sell and trade parts will be on the blockchain, and of course the content that is used to create part crates will be generated using posts from that user on the chain. So basically anything that has to do with goods, services, or money will be on the chain.

Assets, player settings, Character Level, etc. will be stored off chain. However, we will reassess from time to time and adjust accordingly.

Ok that makes perfect sense 😃
I wasnt considering things like player settings when i asked the question. i think its cool that youre gonna use posts as data. I feel like most people underutilize steem by only sticking to votes.

Awesome stuff!
