Welcome to Primitive Call (shortened to PmC). We are a work in progress MORPG (multiplayer online roleplaying game). In Primitive Call, you will take on the role of a wolf in a natural, northern-nature setting. There will be several different sorts of terrain in which you, as a wolf, can take up for territory. Target your choice of prey from various different animals and different levels of hunting difficulty. And have fun with your fellow members in your own pack!
CURRENT STATUS: Work in progress.
No definitive release date.
CURRENT OBJECTIVE: Version 4
More controller & AI
This is the official forum of Primitive Call. Our most recent updates can be found in the game diaries or staff announcements! Please bear with us as we chug along in making Primitive Call. Your support is appreciated.
How long? and would it be in real time or game time?
In real time (I think), the amount of time your wolf is fainted and cannot be played depends on the amount of times you faint in the game. Example: (numbers and time may not be accurate to game) So if you faint once every week (real time) lets say, your wolf will wake up in seconds. But if you faint 10 times per day [like if you fight a bear as Kusy said] then your wolf could take hours to recover. You could still log onto a different character though.
This feature is to the players a sense of not wanting to die, that fighting for life is something to fight for. This way players make more realistic choices (such as NOT attacking a bull elk by yourself) and thereby making the whole game-play more realistic.
yeah, just a heads up tho, things like the exact times and stuff are not 100% set in stones, but we ensure that we try to make the game and mechanics flexible enough for different kind of players and play styles~ c:
Roleplaying possiblities will be taken in consideration, since we know there is a lot of people who appreciate a good rolepay (many in the staff too) but there is also players who enjoy more survival gameplay, which we also want to be a possibility. c:

Local Howl- Question from staff: "What do you think is missing from animal games that are out in the world already? What do you crave most? " We want your opinions!
Lifeon: I prioritize proformance most when looking at anything, If I can find a way to simplify something than I will, that ranges from simulating other players as AI following your 'network ghost' to storing trees as only world coordinates

Lifeon: and have the phisical model be 1 of about 30 that teleport to different coordibates as you travel (super aggressive object pooling)

bean: that is really interesting, I've been interested in game design for a while, and I had no idea about any of that stuff

bean: actually I just started making one of my characters in blender, it's pretty fun

Lifeon: Hell yeah, blenders great

bean: If I want to eventually rig and animate him, is it better to model the inside of the mouth separately?

SpazzySpiritWolf: welp I lost my discord to 2FA. Can someone send me the linky so I can rejoin again

Lifeon: Yes, making the inside of the mouth, teeth etc all separate objects will make rigging way faster, you can combine them to 1 object after if you want. Setting different sections to different materials in the same object also works nicely

bean: oh okay, good to know. I guess the same goes for the eyes then
Jun 21, 2020 11:34:26 GMT -5
Lifeon: yuppp, any overlapping part of the model is better as a separate object or material for rigging

bean: well I sculpted on it before it was done, which messed the whole thing up :') so I have to start over

Lifeon: My patience for unity is tested often and exhaustively, send help, but for anyone who hasn't already you should consider joining the fan discord, I do have some goodies planned for people in there
