Need a Game Development Team

Hey all, I'm looking to put together a small dev team for an indie game project that I'm planning. I'm working from the ground up here, so just about every role is still open. Experience is a plus, but I really only ask that you know what you're doing. The project will be a 3D Sci-fi/Fantasy RPG with a unique style of combat that combines the strategic skill-based systems of JRPG with the real-time fluidity of Western games. I'll put the project on a crowdfunding site like Kickstarter after I have a team and the completed GDD, so some stretch goals might include expanding to MMO or VR. I can give more specific details if you have questions. Roles to Fill: Programmer (C++, Unity 3D) Artist Level Designer Composer Scripter/Writer Voices (maybe) I couldn't pay immediately, but payment would probably be a fixed amount or a percent of the crowdfunding. If anyone is interested or has any questions, let me know.

How would you define the term 'Development'?

The term 'development' is very complex and confusing and I'm having a little problem defining it. I wanted to know, how others define it, what are their perspectives on the term 'development'?

Accelerometer glove for HID development platform

Anyone interested in a glove with accelerometer built-into every finger and data collected via BLE processor? Would it interest you to develop HID algorithm to replace a mouse for gaming or control to a rc car, or a drone? I'm working on something like this and want to gauge interest level.

Help picking the right dev board and microcontroller??

After reading a lot of sites (and a few instructables *cough*westfw*cough*:) on microcontrollers, I want to finally buy one. the only thing though is I also need a development board and im stuck. Theres so many, I can't even begin to know which I should get.I was looking into the Z80 since I could buy a development board for 40$, which is pretty high for me (50 is around my max), and it also has a usb programmer, my laptop doesn't have a serial connection, but Im not so sure anymore. I know *some* c++ and I'm willing to learn c so I don't need a basic module or anything.Do you guys know of any good ones for me?

Contests Are Rewarding Unoriginality, Threatening Creativity

It is truly a shame that judgments in our contests have again been made which serve to promote rehash and discourage creativity. After having watched the Make It Fly! contest make this mistake last month, I could only shake my head as the DIY Summer Camp Challenge also fumbled the ball and awarded a prize to an unoriginal post. Once again, unoriginal projects have landed in the winners' circle while new creations have been left to flounder. On a site that prides itself on people doing things for themselves, this is cause for alarm. Posting someone else's creations under your own name is not doing it yourself. It's high time that that be acknowledged and it be discouraged. Rewarding unoriginal projects is not an avenue to promoting new ideas, developments or breakthroughs. On the contrary, this approach provides an incentive and a compelling case to not pursue new ideas.  Instructables' successes are based on its being a center for new ideas, not old hat. Nevertheless, we are teetering dangerously toward that point with moves like this. Rehashes' qualifications are questionable The statements made in the commentary for the contests--the language of the competitions themselves--speak a resounding "no" against unoriginal content. In the header for the DIY Summer Camp Challenge, it is asked: "What interesting things can you do or make to keep the kids entertained this summer? [...] Share your games, activities, craft projects, and more." In the header for the Make It Fly Contest 2016, the opportunity is given for: "Three, two, one… ignition and lift off! The Make It Fly Contest has taken off and that gives you the perfect excuse to let your creativity take to the skies." There is nothing indistinct about the terms. They clearly outline the project is to be your own, not someone else's. If you are reposting another person's creation, you are upholding neither the contests' specifications nor spirit. In the standard contest terms for each contest, the judgment criteria is given: "Judging. All entries that are in compliance with all terms and conditions of these Rules will be judged on the basis of the following criteria (the "Criteria"): clarity, ingenuity, creativity, quality of presentation, and execution of the Instructable." Rehashed projects which contain contents from others' makings are neither ingenious nor creative. As a result, they ought to receive the minimum score in the sections of ingenuity and creativity if they are not barred from the competitions outright. What this means for makers now: Speaking in reference to how I had handled the contests myself, I spent several weeks perfecting several entries of my own. One of the projects, entered into only the DIY Summer Camp Challenge, was the result of many months' worth of development and refinement. The news that my efforts in those months were all for naught while similar themed but wholly unoriginal projects were selected as winners only served to tell me one thing: the time I spent developing and fine tuning the new projects was all for naught. Currently, the appeal for a person to set their best DIY foot forward and actually do something for themselves has become troublingly shaky. There is now a track record of rehashed projects taking home prizes while other original projects have faced ignominous defeats. There is a precedent to unoriginal trumping original. With rehash supported and honored, it is now reasonable for users to conclude that creativity is neither valued nor worth its costs and that unoriginal copying is a better way of doing things. This could ultimately promote a worsening spiral of disinterest in, apathy toward, and the stagnation of new developments in the numerous fields of endeavor makers strive to go forth in. The chances at falling into this trend draw increasingly close and they cannot be allowed to continue if we wish to see progress. Where we need to go from here: Creativeness must be shown to be valued by Instructables or makers are not likely to pursue it in future competitions. As I did a year ago, I recommend the Instructables staff and judges: Judge unoriginal projects as such and give them the earned low marks for ingenuity and creativity based on their lacking in both regards (if they are even legally fit to continue on in the competition) Not promote unoriginal designs by featuring them Reposting old things is a slide to the past, not a ladder to the future. Makers must act today to make a better, more creative tomorrow and copying is no way to do that.

Raspberry Pi 3 Vs UDOO Neo

Which is a better development board, in terms of automation, robotic and server function?  I plan to build a mobile-operated generic wireless controller that gathered data and also programmable in terms of control. I already drop by to other forums and still undecided. I don't consider a development board that so powerful. What I consider is the practicality, suitability, and compatibility. I appreciate your response and I want to know your ideas about this! Thanks and God bless!

Instructables for Developers - Request!!!

Hi there! I am here to request for a feature of instructables. I am instructabler since 2010 here. I want a support for developers like me such as API's and other stuff. One of my idea is to make an copy-paste code for displaying instructbles profile and other buttons just like for facebook they support developers. If you familiar with "Facebook for Developers" that would be nice! So in equivalent I hope someday this website will support the developers around the world and will called as "Instructables for Developers" this is awesome! If is it possible please let me know any opinions are welcome because this is only an idea for improvements of instructables. Thanks! Wareneutron

Web design & development series

Hi, I am web designer & developer form Nederland. I've been looking around here for some time and it seems like there are not many series that cover everthing about how to design and then develop a website. I thought it would be awsome to create a instructsble serie that let's someone develop there own website in pure HTML & CSS. So I have a couple of ideas. - explaining the basics of flat design (todays standard in web design) - creating a website in pure html & css from the ground up - creating a compleet wordpress theme - much more If you like one of the above ideas or if you have one of your own, please let me know. Thanks for reading. And let me know what you think! Greetings from Holland.

RF Development Kit-Advanced, but could be a lot of fun

Micrel SemiconductorEbay{{{ I have noticed that some people are concerned that due to surface mount technology you can't make electronic stuff anymore. It is not true. A search will quickly find forums discussing how homebuilt electronics experimenters are getting around this. I have a nifty RF development kit for sale on ebay. See ebay link below. These development kits are used by new product developers to quickly get their RF prototypes up and running to develop software, hardware and firmware without the steep learning curve associated with starting development with discrete components. These boards allow you to build custom devices that can comunicate with each other up to a mile apart. Although this is not quite ham worthy distance someone might be able to have some fun with the kit. I have just one, but more (and the actual rf chip) could be acquired through Micrel Semiconductors. Anyway, I have this listed as an industrial item, so I am not sure the right people will see the ad. For those interested in playing with current technology RF.}}}

Assembling a Development Team (VC funding in progress)

I will keep this short and sweet. I am in the process of getting VC funding for my company/video game. I am taking emails on all parts of the development cycle. I will be using the Unity Gaming Engine for proof of concept and possible the complete game. Being that funding has not be secured yet this will be "pro bono". Please note that once funding is approved you will be offered a full-time position.  You will NOT be asked to do any work without knowing you will be offered a full time position. A non disclosure agreement has already been drafted and will have to be signed before any discussion about the game can take place. If you are interested please contact me at dave.anders@verizon.net. Again I am looking at all parts of the development process. If you do not know the Unity Engine that does NOT disqualify you as there are many parts to the video game developement process that exist outside of Unity.

Design and development in the New World

From the MAKE blog, I found an outstanding article in The Economist on product development in the age of rapid prototyping. In their usual fashion, The Economist gets into the nuts and bolts of how a pair of entrepreneurs used rapid prototyping and Kickstarter to create a real product from their initial ideas. It's a great case study for DIY-ers who think they have something marketable, to show how they could make that happen.

Simple Software Development for Drones

Hello Hackers!  I’m David and I’m the head of Developers Relations at NVdrones. I’m writing to you guys and gals because I think you will be interested to know about what we created. We create a platform that allows any hacker to write an app for a drone in the most simple way possible. Meaning you can create a pace of software that will control a drone autonomously based only on inputs from sensor that you attach to our board. No need to know C, change firmware nor spend thousands of dollars for a flight controller that allows swapping of the firmware. With our solution you can by the cheapest flight controller for around 30USD, attach our board (NVextender) and have a solution that can be programmed using Arduino right now and Android, Javascript and more in the future. We just pre launched the developer website http://developers.NVdrones.com and would like to invite your audience to take a look. If you would like to get the pre release Developer Kit send me an email at developers@NVdrones.com and let know how would you plan to use our platform. Best.

The appointment will be for one-year. Minimum Qualifications:An M.S. or Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering or Computer Engineering (or closely related subject), with expertise in embedded systems design (hardware) and RF design (e.g. Bluetooth or any other RF protocols used in sensor networks). Microcontroller programming and knowledge of interfacing microcontrollers to analog and digital sensors is required. The candidate must possess 1-2 years of research or development experience designing, prototyping, testing and debugging electronic circuits, and the candidate must have past experience demonstrating the ability to independently develop wireless sensors from conception to manufacturing to enclosure design.

When do humans develop abstract reasoning?

This is a great demonstration of abstract reasoning, and the lack thereof in small children. Apparently kids will (almost) always fail this test up to age 4, and almost always pass after age 7. The magic transitional age varies, of course.Parents and siblings, this should give some great hints on how to seem "fair" while still short-changing your child. ;)
