    Classic City Builder Kit
    Store Demos Manual


    Hi everybody, I've recently released the Classic City Builder Kit to the Asset Store. I have long loved the classic city builders like pharaoh or caesar but have been a bit disappointed with how little new games have been released in the genre recently. I think that stems in part from the big up front effort required to get even a simple city builder set up. That's the problem I tried to solve with this kit, providing common features of the genre so game creators can get a big head start and focus on what makes their city builder unique.

    @softleitner ist there a discord support channel?

    - The Version.txt shows 0.9.0 (Assetstore shows 1.0.0), it looks like there is an older version in the asset store.

    - Where i can find the urban city demo?
    - All materials showing Hidden/InternalErrorShader

    Using Unity 2019.4.21f, installed TMP and Tilemap Editor package

    I don't currently have a discord, fastest way to reach me is by mail(softleitner@gmail.com).
    Please check which version you have downloaded in the package manage, if you have downloaded 0.9 previously you can update it there.
    The urban city demo should then be directly in the root of the project and materials should be changed to legacy.

    There is a problem that causes the wrong version to be downloaded in unity versions below 2019.4.23.
    I will fix it in the next update, in the meantime please upgrade your unity installation to use CCBK 1.0.0.

    I was able to resolve the issue without releasing an actual update. The version is still 1.0.0 but the problem with old data should no longer occur.

    i've not had the time to play it but from what i know about rimworld i think that game is heavily based upon individual walkers and their AI which is not currently well supported in CCBK
    it might give you a good jumping off point for some of the basic stuff like structures, buildings, walkers, layers, saving...

    Hey! I mean can the AI manage the settlement. For example, as a neighboring settlement on the world map.

    And I can't figure out how to make roads in the editor.

    Oh I see, no there is no AI of that kind.

    In the Editor Roads are drawn using the Tile Palette from the 2D Tilemap Editor Package.

    Hello, I have a question about the creation of new terrains. In the 3d demo there are three demoterrains. I would like to create new terrains. Can I do this through the terrain editor of uniy? Do I then assign the appropriate colors to the layers?

    Greetings Andreas

    Hi!

    The maps in the 3D City Builder demo are just meshes, unity terrains are part of the new Colony Sim demo but that one is still very much in development and Experimental.
