Minicraft / Terraria clone
« on: April 08, 2012, 05:37:51 pm »
Hi guys,

I recently began work on a minicraft like game in Lua, but I realized it was missing something (I'll give you a hint -- another dimension). I decided to make a minicraft with TERRARIA view! What do y'all think?

EDIT: here are some planning notes.
Blocks
stage1
0/nil → air (maybe vaccum?), rgb(254,254,255)
1 → dirt, rgb(150,100,50)
stage2
2 → stone, rgb(200,200,200)
3 → cobble, rgb(150,150,150)
4 → wood, rgb(150,100,50)
5 → leaf/air, rgb(100,200,100)
stage3
6 → coal (ore)
7 → coal (drop)
8 → iron (ore)
9 → iron (ingot)
10 → crafting table
11 → furnace

Ideas
store last key (instabreak to start)
sparse matrix of fixed size (to start)
UPDATE 2:
Check daily for Updates!!!
Code: [Select]
function create(mode)
t=1/2
timer.start(t)
sprites={image.new("\008\000\000\000\008\000\000\000\000\000\000\000\016\000\000\000\016\000\001\000\000\000\000\000\000\000)\165)\165\000\000\000\000\000\000\000\000\000\000)\165\000\000\000\000)\165\000\000\000\000)\165\000\000\000\000)\165)\165\000\000\000\000)\165\000\000)\165\000\000\000\000\000\000\000\000)\165\000\000\000\000\000\000)\165)\165)\165)\165\000\000\000\000\000\000\000\000\000\000)\165)\165\000\000\000\000\000\000\000\000\000\000)\165\000\000\000\000)\165\000\000\000\000\000\000\000\000)\165\000\000\000\000)\165\000\000\000\000"),image.new("\008\000\000\000\008\000\000\000\000\000\000\000\016\000\000\000\016\000\001\000\000\128\140\177\000\128\140\177\000\128\140\177\000\128\140\177\140\177\000\128\140\177\000\128\140\177\000\128\140\177\000\128\000\128\140\177\000\128\140\177\000\128\140\177\000\128\140\177\140\177\000\128\140\177\000\128\140\177\000\128\140\177\000\128\000\128\140\177\000\128\140\177\000\128\140\177\000\128\140\177\140\177\000\128\140\177\000\128\140\177\000\128\140\177\000\128\000\128\140\177\000\128\140\177\000\128\140\177\000\128\140\177\140\177\000\128\140\177\000\128\140\177\000\128\140\177\000\128")}

This sounds promising. Have screenshots/photos?

Basically Minecraft, but instead of Tinycraft,s flat, top-down view, you want to make it like Mario? It would be a great idea I think, because Minecraft relies a lot on digging, so a flat world doesn't sound as fun to me. Is it your first project by the way? As this might be kinda challenging if you go for large maps and keep every Minecraft option, if it's your first ever venture into programming. Good luck regardless, though. :)
In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF

And it's in Lua too.  It might be faster and better in C, but then again, that would be much harder O_o
Good luck! Is it possible to add the other dimension to make it a bird's eye view?
You just lost the game.

Well for such game, I think Lua might be just fine enough, and if Lua is fast enough for that type of game, I guess it's a good idea to make it in that language so whenever Ndless gets blocked by TI, people can still play the game.

Nice job linuxgeek96! I've been thinking of a Terraria clone in Lua too for a while (check my signature) but I was planning to learn and release some more easier games first before I tackle this more ambitious project myself. Have you created any other projects? Cuz attempting this as one of your first projects will be difficult.
Anyway good luck!

Oh wow! I was just working on a game like this! I swear, as soon as I start working on a project, someone else makes a topic about them making the exact same thing.

Lol yes, looks like we might have several clones of Terraria or Minecraft. :P Minecraft 3D would be very hard to do though.

Most usually die, though, so I guess that's good there are other clones being worked on, in case the rest die and yours becomes finished. :P

Many die due to the sheer difficulty and mass scale of these types of projects. It could probably take years for a project like this to near completion.
Side view is much simpler than 3D viewing.

Yeah I mentionned it above, but he wants a more side-scrolling approach with pits and cliffs rather than the flat lands in Tinycraft.
