Dev Logs #11: Builder Tools and Quest Markers
This has been an exciting week at Realm — we announced a new partnership with Gamifi and launched a Gleam contest for our communities with over $40,000 USD worth of giveaways! Check it out for your chance to win!
Our developers have been working away and making tremendous progress — we are excited to show you more of our progress as we continue through product testing and prepare for our launch!
Builder Tools Revealed
Our customer builder tools are fundamental to empowering users to easily and efficiently create their own worlds within Realm. This video demonstrates a very early version of these tools including some of the terrain building functionality. Our builder tools will be available on both Mobile and Desktop. You can see how easy and intuitive it will be to utilize various modules and world assets to create a world that is uniquely your own!
As this stage we are experimenting with different types and sizes of modules. Some will slot together like Lego blocks, and others will have more organic shapes that can overlap to create natural features such as islands and rock formations. These modular structures can be used to generate unlimited varieties of designs!
The textures here are minimal and only use solid colors. Once we have finalized the catalogue of modules, we will start to apply PBR textures which will add layers of realism to the Realm Builder Tool. We will also create alternative textures for surreal designs — the only real limits to what you can build in Realm will be your imagination!
The Realm Metaverse will be filled with quests and challenges to encourage players to explore the vast Realms and reward them for doing so. Because the Metaverse is so expansive, it is helpful to have markers which can guide you along your quests and save time while playing the game. Quests can also be used by world builders to encourage players to explore different regions of their Realms.
We can determine how prominent our compass-style indicators are at any given moment based on variables such as proximity, inventory items, current quest status or even global events that all players contribute to. We will continue to refine this feature and many more — so stay tuned for more updates on our development and we’ll see you in the Metaverse!
