Mesh Combination tools for Editor Essentials

The new Mesh Combination tools are ready!

Already some days ago Unity teams finally reviewed and approved the new version of the MVG Editor Essentials for Unity3D. Part of this addition is – among several smaller tweaks and fixed – a whole new tool: The mesh combination tool. For free at no additional costs and part of the update!

With the mesh combination tool you may easily generate combined geometry out of all your scene objects, have them group together, share materials and alike. This is actually necessary in order to save draw calls which still is a factor, especially on mobile devices.

Combining geometry for this reason is not new and Unity already ships with some scripts to help you with the process. The MVG Editor Essentials use an extended version of these scripts and – this is the main part – give you a fully equipped toolbox to generated combined geometry within seconds.

Just watch the video here to get a glimpse of the capabilities (also serves as a tutorial):

You can find more information on the tools on the MVG Editor Essentials page.

MVG Editor Essentials available!

“Heck, what are those guys actually doing!?” – I guess that’s what you ask everytime you visit this page and notice: nothing. Nothing seems to change and you might easily assume we are sitting on our lazy asses counting all the money we would like to have. But you are wrong!

Over the past couple of weeks MVG has been working on improving some of the internal tools which we use in the Unity Editor and which have been created to fit the needs for game development. These tools have been combined in a framework, the MVG Editor Essentials, an editor plugin to the Unity3D toolset.

The great news is:

MVG Editor Essentials is available now!

For the short tempered – Here’s the direct link to the Unity Asset store:

The tools have been built to simplify everydays’ life with the Editor. To make mass object placement much quicker and comfortable. To help speed up the development process. All the details plus a video are located on the dedicated page for the MVG Editor Essentials.

There’s also more to come as the Editor Essentials have been built in a modular way and are meant to be extended over time with increased functionality. There are also plans for additional plugins, but those shall not be reveiled as of now. Stay tuned!

New Website, new design, new everything!

Mad Vulture Games is finally available in an all new design! Looks good, doesn’t it? Well even if not, let’s be honest, the old design sucked big time.

Actually ever since this website exists it was equipped with a design which could easily burn your eyes, rip them out, crush them to juice and afterwards laugh at them. We hated it, you hated it. Yet there was a reason for that, because actually the whole website was built in a couple of minutes during the release of the Gothic 3 Forsaken Gods Enhanced Edition as we (MVG and the Community Patch Team) did not have any further access to the old site and needed a place to show our precious jewel, as well as enable you guys to download the patch.

The bad thing only was that next to creating the Enhanced Edition(s) as well as taking care of Booty Hunt, which finally has been released about a year and a half ago as you can see from the time stamp of the last post (D’Oh!) there simply was no time so far to get rid of that burden of the past. Until now!

Madvulture.de finally got a new design, a new menu structure, ability to log in with your Facebook or Twitter account, better overview, better readability, we are also on our way to establish a Twitter account for these small time updates one wants to scream out here and there. Weehee!

Still you can find all the content and all the links like you used to. Nothing has been removed, just improved.

What do you think? Do you like the new design? Anything which needs to be improved further? Leave a comment!

Booty Hunt about to be finished!

Time for a progress upgrade!

While every single minute of free and not-so-free time is put into polishing and finishing the game, Booty Hunt makes great progress and is nearly finished. Just some last bits are left, such as some translations to be updated, some minor bugs to be taken care of, making sure that levels are beatable but not to easy to get done and such.

Booty Hunt will soon be sent to Apple for review, and right after that you are going to see it hit the shelves. Err, the App Store. Looking forward!

Pirate Treasure now Booty Hunt!

Just to make sure not to run into any kind of legal trouble, get the attention of an angry mob or have the bright lights of trademark lawsuits shine down on me, Pirate Treasure is now no longer Pirate Treasure. Instead, we’ll just call it Booty Hunt from now on!

So, remember. Pirate Treasure is gone. Long live Booty Hunt!

And just to make sure you got it:

Booty Hunt

Also, it’s very close to getting finished. Stay tuned!
