    Thread: If You Dont Like The Unreal 4 Engine........ in Ember & The Unreal Engine

    You can't per say go wrong with mainstream engines like UE4 or Unity or Lumberyard or (...). Choice of engine depends on many factors, what kind of game, what middleware you want to use, target platforms, how much you want to use various asset stores etc. Unity is great for indies, it's great for C# developers used to Visual Studio IDE, it's great for multiplatform development, you can achieve comparable results as with any other engine as long as you have muscle to pull it off, but how much of it is relevant for Em-8ER? Not that much. Similar can be said about other engines. I'm Unity guy, but completely understand Grummz's decision to go with UE4 for Em-8ER.

    Okay. Looks like this is a go then. It's going to take a couple days to put this together and launch the Teespring campaign. I'm going to price the T-Shirts at the lowest possible amount, so I shouldn't be making any profit.

    It's going to be a few days before I can put it up, I need to trace parts of the logo by hand, AutoTrace is messing up sharp corners when I convert to vector. I want this to be good quality. I'll update with more info when I have it.

    Let us know if you see the servers go down first. Esp the forums. Without the Firefall forums we can't verify founders rewards.

    Just a reminder that it will take us up to 2 weeks to process everyone's title. We have to do so by hand, and there are 2000 new titles to process between two volunteer community peeps. Today I'll be manually processing the pledge email lists to get us started.

    The response has been heartwarming. Today and yesterday are a bit difficult for many of us, but Em-8ER is what makes it okay and keeps me going.

    What a shame. The history and the blood, sweat and tears that went into making that. Many of the original devs I spoke with today were surprised it was still up at all. None were surprised.

    Greetings Emberites! As you all know there were, sadly, no physical rewards available during the Milestone 3 Fundraiser. This was a devastating blow to, if not everybody's, then at least my wardrobe. If any of you feel this way, there is hope. Our kind and benevolent overlord, @Grummz, has given permission for T-Shirts to be made using the official logo! Please fill out the survey above so I can get a feeling for the level of interest, and whether or not we can do women's or children's sizes!

    The Shirt:

    Back Closeup:

    I'm seeking community feedback on this design. Suggestions, design submissions, insults... it's all welcome! I'm still pricing out print/fulfillment houses, but I'm hoping to keep it in the range of $15 USD + Shipping. Let the responses begin!

    EDIT:

    Possible Change to the Front... CHROMA TSHIRT!

    It's been a sad day for many of us, but how odd how they announced it the week our fundraiser for Em-8ER successfully completed.

    Regardless. They dropped the ball and it's time for us to pick it up and run with it. Thank you all.
