    ORK Framework 2.6.0 is here
    This update brings a new queued notification dialogue type, reorganized event/formula/battle AI steps, massive performance improvements and other new features, changes and fixes.
    See the full release notes for details.

    As usual, the new version has already been sent out to customers and is available in the Unity Asset Store.


    @drewradley
    The NavMesh thing isn't really an error, just a warning :)
    Will see that I check if the agent is active or not (if that's even possible) before trying to stop it.

    @Tryz
    Awake and Start should be called by Unity regardless of if the game object is already in the scene or instantiated from a prefab. There's also no way for ORK to prevent Unity calling them :)

    When do customers get the asset sent? I haven't seen any updates since my purchase on November 3rd.

    Thanks for the hard work on this asset. It is tremendous :)

    Did you register as a customer on his website? You'll need to do that in order to get early access. Not that you will really need it as it seem Unity has been good for approving asset store submission for GiL pretty quickly. I've already received the update via the asset store. Has been that way past couple updates it seems. :)

    If you bought it in the asset store, you can download the new version there. If you bought it in my webshop, you should already have received an email with the update - if not, please send me an email with your order number to contact@orkframework.com.

    @ Tryz-- I think gamingislove is open to extensions to ORK. Tanohmz just recently published Playmaker actions for ORK with Gil's blessing. Maybe you should buy a copy of ORK so you can look at the code.

    I have created this little poll thingy to get feedback and see if this something the ORK community will find useful.

    strawpoll.me/6480961

    Examples:
    FPS Starterkit with UFPS
    2D RPG Starterkit
    Diablo like game Starterkit

    Here's a new gameplay tutorial about using the nearest battle game object for unplaced battles. When using Random Battle Areas or Combatant Spawners, it can happen that a battle is badly placed (e.g. with things blocking the way) - this can be prevented by predefining battle positions to be used.

    In case some of you weren't aware-the group buy proposal for the turn-based, grid-based ORK addition succeeded. We got a big mystery contributor who pushed us to tilt in the Tilt--read back if you have no idea what I'm talking about or click on the link below. We're all very excited. It's a great addition to ORK. I think Gil is excited too. WE DID IT! The power of crowd funding from the best crowd ever! For a useful addition to one of the best products ever.

    If you own ORK and you didn't contribute, you're going to get this fantastic add on for free.

    That's right---for free. However, if you don't feel comfortable with getting this wonderful addition for absolutely free------

    If you'd like to help Kirb clean up some of the costs and fees involved in doing the transaction like conversion fees from USD to Euros (I think) some of us did--you can still contribute here---every little bit helps. Even $10 helps. Thanks if you can. I don't think he anticipated that because it was a new thing to all of us and I wouldn't want him to have to take anything out of his own pocket after all the work he did and after his own contribution.

    https://www.tilt.com/tilts/grid-battle-system-for-the-ork-framework

    As Kirb says there "This collection is for the commission and implementation of a grid-based battle system à la Final Fantasy Tactics, Tactics Ogre, Fire Emblem, and Fallout in ORK, an already immensely robust RPG framework for the Unity Engine."

    We did it!

    And this is why a few of us threw in some more of our USD's and EURO's--if you have a few to contribute, please do.

    Kirb said, "The exchange rate between USD and Euro has changed a bit, actually resulting in a slightly more expensive target, but I will try to meet that target myself. I'll let everyone know once I've sent the payment over to GiL!"

    We don't want Kirb to have to meet that target himself. If you can help with even $10 hopefully Euros, please do. : D

    I think the cheapest kit for grid-based battle on the asset store is no where near $10--correct me if I'm wrong---so if you own ORK and want to help out a little now that we got this---

    that would be great and would undoubtedly make you feel really good.

    And if you don't own ORK, well this is a good reason to get it. We are so thrilled-in case you couldn't tell.

    You can follow our ups and downs and final thrill here--we still don't know who our mysterious benefactor is who had a lot of bucks to contribute but if it's you---THANK YOU!

    I wanted to ask about Playmaker integration, but I saw Makinom option. I am no coder - do you think that Makinom can be interchangeable with Playmaker as a visual coding tool?

    What about perks? Is it possible to have perks in ORK? I am not thinking about status/abilities modofication, but separate menu with abilities like weapon dual-wielding or night vision. How to achieve this?

    ORK Framework 2.7.1 is here!
    This update brings improvements for HUDs and menu screens, and other small features, changes and fixes.
    See all details in the release notes.


    @jeremiasz
    Perks would usually be set up as passive abilities (i.e. set Usable In to None in the ability's settings) - you can use ability types to have them in separate menu screens.

    ORK handles 2D very well. Look at Kirb's game showcased in the ORK Framework website.

    Since ORK is an RPG framework, it doesn't really matter if it's 3D or 2D. In both cases you'll just use prefabs (being 3D models or 2D sprites). Depending on the gamplay style you're aiming for, you'll need custom player/camera controls (but that's also valid for 2D and 3D).
    You need to watch out when moving 2D objects around (e.g. using ORK's event system), especially when rotating them :)

    Hello. I just picked up ORK and am having a problem on import. I am using ORK 2.7.1 and Unity 5.3.4f1. On import I get the following error:

    Package does not contain valid asset for: Assets/ORK Framework/DLL/Editor/ORKFrameworkEditor.dll


    And idea what's causing it or how to fix it?

    Thanks,
    Mura

    Create a fresh project and import the ORK prefab. Make sure it's the prefab you're importing. Open the ORK Framework editor. Go to any tab and hit save. So you're initializing ORK. Save your project. Does that get rid of the error message?

    So I did a test because I was following the install tutorial. When I use the free limited version you can download from the website everything works great. But when I use the package I download from the asset store I am still getting the error:

    Package does not contain valid asset for: Assets/ORK Framework/DLL/Editor/ORKFrameworkEditor.dll


    I even tried starting with the free version and updating to the paid version and still receiving the error.

    Any thoughts?
    Thanks,
    Mura

    So I read this...

    • 4 different battle systems (Turn Based, Active Time, Real Time and Phase battles), all 4 systems can be used in the same game, you can even change the system type while in battle.
    But other than "Turn Based" I have no idea what that means. This does not allow you to create an action RPG? Is that what I am reading? Thanks.

    @EvilGremlin: Yes you absolutely can create an action RPG with ORK. That would be the Real Time battle system. The tutorial series walks you through how to set up a basic real time combat system.

    Phase battles are when each side takes turns. Active time battles are what you had in SNES and PlayStation era Final Fantasy games.

    Depending on what sort of action RPG you want to make, you may want to pair ORK with a more advanced character controller like Opsive's Third Person Controller or ootii's Motion Controller.

    Okay, thank you for that clarification. I was actually thinking of using MC. But what I am making is more along the lines of Vampire the Masquerade: Bloodlines. So kind of an action game/rpg/shooter? I have a lot of options as to what direction to take that. I'm just trying to hammer out what of my many options is going to give me the best game.

    Hey, I finished my long list of Unity tutorials (only took a couple months, there are so many). And I am just now playing around with the free ORK and going through tutorials. I have a quick question.

    I see that it is pretty easy to replace the camera and controller in ORK. (Which is very cool btw.) And it supports a full party system. (Also very cool.) Does that mean I could use a character selector like Isometrium simply by replacing the camera and controller?

    @EvilGremlin:

    In theory, yes. I've replaced ORK's controller and camera with Opsive's TPC (controller & camera) and with ootii's Motion Controller and Camera & Adventure Rig. I've also done a setup with Motion Controller as the player controller and PhatRobit's Simple RPG Camera as the camera. In some cases you need to write a small "bridge" component that will block the player or camera controller from responding to input when an ORK event blocks player or camera controls. Nothing too complicated though.

    I can't tell if Isometrium includes some sort of character controller that actually moves and animates the character; looking over the docs I would say that it doesn't. You might run into problems when it comes to clicking on objects to interact with, as ORK has its own way of handling that, so you'd probably want to use Isometrium for selecting charcters & formations and selecting a destination to move to, but let ORK handle interacting with objects.

    Isometrium's camera system looks like it should hook up to ORK without any major problems.

    Is there currently any way to check line of sight in the new grid system? So if there is a blocked tile between user and target, something happens if they attack through it? Or even just prevents the attack? Thanks! (also asked on the ORK Forum)

    As usual, the update has already been sent out to customers and should be available in the Asset Store shortly (you'll need Unity 5.5 to get it).


    Out of Office
    I'll be out of office from later today till next Monday, i.e. back in office on December 13.
    There'll be no support during that time, so if you need help, just drop by the support forum - there are a lot of helpful people there .)

    Hi,
    I would ask about Opsive's thrid person control integration.
    Is it possible to use ORK's skill system, level up, shop system use with TPC , but only use these features of ORK?

    I would not like to make turned base battle, I would like RPG with TPC shooter with my own AI.. For example : Division, SWTOR ( just example for combat type).
    Thank you :)

    I'm not sure if I get this. I've purchased ORK years ago, though never received a mail, let alone a new version automatically. Who do qualify as customers? :)

    How's your code skills? You'll need to dig into the code and make a lot of edits to make it work. I managed to get a previous version of Opsive's TPC with ORK but the latest version is giving me trouble. Can't seem to get the camera to recenter on the player.

    Opsive and ORK:
