The Engine

3dPE is a collaborative project made by a bunch of nerds in their spare time. Updates can be sporadic.

We keep everything together using git - so handily, that lets us show non-coders how lazy we're being.

Interested in joining in? 3dPE is made with Python and OpenGL, along with Pygame and wxPython. If you know any of these, or you'd like to learn, come and talk to us!

Likewise, we're interested in anyone with knowledge of extracting ROM data from DS games, and of course, anyone interested in making a game with our unholy abomination copyright infringement baby.

Wrote the updated 3dPE General spec document found in docs/spec. Merged in overworld25 branch's core changes, and brought ui2d up to speed.
M plugin-architecture bonzairob @ 15:40 on 20 Oct 17
Merge branch 'plugin/ui2d' into plugin-architecture
plugin-architecture Overworld2.5 bonzairob @ 20:31 on 19 Oct 17
Hooked up the add terrain button, terrain UI done for now
plugin-architecture Overworld2.5 bonzairob @ 16:23 on 19 Oct 17
Core: added a G().s(int) function that returns 's' if the integer is not 1. overworld25: Altered moving terrain so that all terrains with the Move button toggled will be moved by the same amount.
plugin-architecture Overworld2.5 bonzairob @ 20:10 on 15 Oct 17
Core: Added Alert class with a Confirm method for quick access to modals. overworld25: added Terrain.getSaveData(), used for undoing terrain deletion; added terrain loading from getSaveData() save data; added terrain deletion and undoing thereof
plugin-architecture Overworld2.5 bonzairob @ 17:29 on 15 Oct 17
Changed terrain positions to be stored pix/vox instead of cells (*16); hooked up movement controls including undo
plugin-architecture Overworld2.5 bonzairob @ 13:24 on 15 Oct 17
Hooked up terrain name changing, and added to undo; aligned round terrain so that the 0-spoke-line starts at 0 degrees to make it easier to join to square terrains
