NEW Features and a NEW Release!

With our 3D FPS / Survival Horror Kit finally released, we're now back into the full swing of things! A new version of 001 Game Creator (v1.018.008) is now available on Steam and is packed with tons of new content and bug fixes.

As always, you can see the full change log HERE Now let's go over some of these changes, shall we?

Updated New / Open Game Window

What better place to start than with the first thing you're greeted with upon opening 001 Game Creator. In an effort to make 001 a little more user-friendly, we've tweaked the New / Open Game window to be more streamlined:

Updated Main Toolbar

Additionally, we've cleaned up the main toolbar by removing the icons for Legacy Settings (now called Advanced Game Settings), Visual Settings and Startup Menu Settings. These options are still available in the main menu, as always, and are also now accessible in the Game Settings window too:

Sprite Materials And Normal Maps

Normal Mapping and Material Editing are now available for Sprites, having previously only been available for Tile-Sets, giving you access to custom shaders across the board! They work the same way too! Simply select "Normal" from the "Mapping" drop down menu to add/edit your Sprite's normal maps. To edit materials, just click the "Edit Material" button next to the "Graphic Scripting" button to open the Material Editor:

Walking Animation Scale

This new Actor Graphic Option allows you to create fixed animation speeds, which is something that several users have been asking for. Essentially, this option allows you to specify the frame rate at which the Sprite animation plays at, regardless of its speed.

Performance Debugger

We've updated 001's Debugger with a new "Performance" section that lists slow triggers and collisions. We hope this extra feedback will prove useful to those looking to optimise their games for the best possible performance!

Improved Pathfinding

Pathfinding (used by AI and for "Walk to..." type events) has been greatly improved, resulting in a lot of fixes to issues that have plagued users for some time, including characters teleporting into or getting stuck in nearby collisions.

Ignore Cursor Field Option

And lastly, a small but very useful Field option that allows you to create overlaying Fields without them obstructing selectable Fields underneath them!

001 Games Showcase!

As we mentioned last time, we've created an official 001 Game Creator Instagram account where we've been sharing all of your 001 game creations! If you're on Instagram then please feel free to follow us for new posts every Monday, Thursday and Saturday! If you're got a 001 game you'd like us to showcase, then don't hesitate to get in contact with us!

Oh, and one last thing!

We hope you enjoy the latest version and all that it has to offer. We're still working hard on our planned Point & Click Adventure Kit and so, with that said, here's a small parting gift from the team...a little sneak peek:

Graphically Assisted Scripting
001 Game Creator offers creators the ability to craft intuitive and imaginative games without any prior coding knowledge. This is especially beneficial to artists and designers who prefer a more hands-on and visualised approach or developers who don’t wish to spend hours bashing their head against a wall. Unlike traditional Event-Driven Programming applications, 001 Game Creator offers a huge set of built-in events, with the ability to also create custom events for specific tailor-made functionality just for your games.

PC, Steam HTML5 & mobile development all-in-one
001 Game Creator allows developers to build their games for Windows PCs (exe) - with Steam API support (achievements, statistics, etc.), HTML5 (js/html) and mobile devices (apk) all-in-one! Unlike other similar engines, 001 Game Creator provides developers with the freedom to create their games for all available platforms without paying anything extra. Best of all, there are no additional license or revenue fees for selling your games - so if you’ve purchased a copy of 001 Game Creator you can sell your games without having to share the profits with us!

Play games with everyone
001 Game Creator gives developers the tools to create ambitious online multiplayer/co-op experiences with built-in networking features (TCP/IP). In addition, 001 Game Creator also allows developers to create local multiplayer experiences with up to four players - with multiple gamepad support included.

The possibilities are endless
001 Game Creator unlocks the doors to a wide range of possibilities. Make any game you can think of, including (but not limited to) RPGs, shoot-‘em-ups, racing games, fighting games, simulation games, platformers, tower defense, card games and even 3D games! If you can imagine it, you can create it with 001 Game Creator.

Please note: Our documentation is currently only available in English at this time.
