Bubble Destroyer

This is a new tutorial so you can learn to use the LWRP and Slab Fondler in a fulldome environment

  • Downloads

    During this tutorial, you’re going to learn to build a game for fulldome display with point mechanics, an intro and exit system, and an environment. We’re going to use the native animation system to make some simple animations that change the environment through the course of the game. No prior knowledge of Unity or game design is required to follow this tutorial, but it would help if you at least do the built in tutorial on how to use the Unity IDE and the names of the parts of it if you’re starting at no prior knowledge.

    It uses a LWRP fulldome camera for Unity that I’ve made publicly available on Github to produce a fisheye render for display on an appropriate system. It also lets players use their phones to participate in the game, so up to 24 players can compete. This is done through an open source web server you’ll set up on a secure free cloud provider service. I’ll explain how to set that up on a free Github account and a free Heroku instance.

    I love to code and I build things in a variety of coding languages. I know that most of you don’t feel that way though. I included some code I wrote to make this and other game demos work. You’re free to use this code in your own projects. The fulldome industry needs as many Open Source tools available as possible to create interactive immersive experiences. If you develop a novel solution based on this, please consider sharing it the same way.

    Most of the components here are free, built into the Unity framework, Asset Store, or provided in the asset package. The exception to this rule is BestHTTP, a Unity plugin which is available on the Asset Store. It’s a great asset for interacting with a variety of servers but is particularly good with websocket, which is used by the multiplayer server. You’ll need to buy that on the asset store to follow this tutorial to completion. Yes, it’s possible to script all the websocket data transfers without that package, but it is way more difficult. Another handy download is Particles - Bubbles from Playmint. It’s free and includes some way better bubble textures than the ones I photoshopped. I also used a free Sound Asset called Fun & Games that I found on the Asset Store.

    If you’re watching this tutorial and following along, make sure you have everything downloaded and installed that you’re going to need ahead of time, and remember to subscribe, and click the bell to get future updates. I put the full text instructions up on my website CosmicOrbiters.com.

    Preparation:

    1. Add BestHTTP/2 (Unity Asset Store) to project
    2. Download Bubble Destroyer game assets as unitypackage

    We’re gonna do the audio setup before making any prefabs that contain Audio Source objects. That way, we don’t have to go back at the end and change the ones we make. This is a super simple audio setup for a game.

    1. Create New Main Mixer named BubbleMixer
    2. Add Two Groups, SFX and BGM
    3. Set BGM to -14 Attenuation
    4. Add Duck Volume to BGM

    Player Prefab Setup

    In this game, each player is a pointer, and the player object will reorient in the game scene as the user reorients their phone. In any multiplayer game, it’s a good idea to build a player prefab. This makes sure that everyone is defined according to the same rules. There’s a couple parts that we don’t use much in this game but are useful for building more advanced interactions for users than popping bubbles, like multi-touch and a physical interaction hinge for picking things up and moving them around in the game interface.

    Save Your Game

    We’ve got all the prefabs built, it’s time to set the scene for the players and explain to them what they need to do to play. We’re going to build a canvas with text that has a fade-in-out animation.

    DetailCanvas:

    In The Hierarchy

    1. Create a new UI > Canvas Object, Rename it DetailCanvas
    2. Change the Canvas to World Space
    3. Reset the Rect Transform
    4. Set Pos Z to 30

    11. Set the Font Size to 50
    12. Set Horizontal and Vertical to center
    13. Set the Material to UIText
    14. Set the Color to light aqua
    15. Drop the Alpha of the Color to 0

    In the Animation Window

    1. Add an animation to the Text Object, name the animation /assets/animations/TextFadeInOut5s
    2. Press the Record Button
    3. Set the Frame Counter to 0
    4. Set the alpha of the text to 1 and then back to 0
    5. Set the Frame Counter to 30

    7. Set the Frame Counter to 270
    8. Set the alpha of the text to 0 and then back to 255
    9. Set the Frame Counter to 300
    10. Set the alpha of the text to 0
    11. Press record to finish recording

    GameIntro:

    Now that there’s animated text which will display for 5 seconds in each Detail Canvas, we need to make another animation which will cycle those Detail Canvas objects. That’s going to be another GameObject named GameIntro.

    1. Create a New Empty Game Object, reset the transform, name it GameIntro
    2. Add new Audio Source object to GameIntro, name it IntroMusic
    3. Change the IntroMusic source to Assets/Fun & Games 1min 3s
    4. Check Play On Awake
    5. Deactivate DetailCanvas
    6. Make DetailCanvas a child of GameIntro
    7. Duplicate DetailCanvas 11 times
    8. Change the text in all the canvases to introduce the game and acknowledge contributions. Here’s my suggestions:
    1. “BUBBLE DESTROYER”
    2. “A fulldome game by InsertYourName”
    3. “Built with Unity3D”
    4. “Go to the url and press start to play”
    5. “Lock your phone rotation”
    6. “Press reset while pointing forward”
    7. “SFX freesound.org argitoth / baidnovan”

    11. “The url capitalization is important.”
    12. “Ping your icon with the target button”
  • There are now 12 canvasses, each is set to display for 5 seconds, and the text starts as invisible since its alpha is 0. This means the introduction is 12 X 5 = 60 seconds in length.
  • Select GameIntro
  • Add a new animation to GameIntro, call it Animations/GameIntro
  • In the Animation Window, Press the Record Button
  • Set the frame counter to 0
