We would like to create a small custom story for the Q-gears project that we could distribute along with the engine so the user can get a feeling for what it can do already.  This shouldn't be longer than 20-30 minutes and should have plenty of action like field module puzzles like the mayor's library puzzle or push the button together puzzles. 

This kind of project requires field models, backgrounds, scripts and a storyline.  This means that you don't have to know C++ to help.

This is a collection of what we have so far of assets
Warning: Data heavy

Outdoor water scene

Elevator car scene (new version)

Elevator car scene (old version)

A power company logo (used in place of the shinra logo)

Midgar city outside scenes:

Midgar slums outside scenes:

Our very own debug room (startmap)

Reactor bridge from character's point of view

Reactor bridge (new and updated) from original and intended camera view

A random dining table scene (not found in game)

Care to post some basic examples or documentation on how to write scripts? I know that it's lua but I wouldn't know where to look to find specific °7/q/hotdog-gears functions.

Edit:

Is this the repo where the project is stored? https://github.com/paulsapps/7-Gears
I'll fork it and poke around but the latest build in this repo looks a little dusty and a little not build-able?

Regular github repo for Q-gears/Q-gears because 7-gears seems to be going nowhere for now.  Poke around the wiki and check out Q-gears/data repo for some examples.  Look at data/maps/ffvii/field/

Can scripts/models be made for Q-Gears using Makou/Kimera, or does it need something else? Because a short joint/community project could be fun.

The models can be edited with Kimera (That is how I edit them :) ) Once edited in Kimera the game converter converts them into OGRE 3D friendly meshes.

The scripts can be made/edited with any text editor or LUA IDE you like, their format is below and their file name ends  in .lua

I could imangine that a shortstory with Mayo's great new renderers would be nice project. Maybe a small story about Aeris as kid and the turks.

I would love it if we could do a story about that however we would need a model for Aeris as a kid (not the one used in game) and we would have to change the names a bit because it can't have original content like Aeris -> Iris
Like different everything but have the same kind of "atmosphere" to it so if you have played the original game and understood the story well you can understand who plays what role in this.

Depands on how you will share it. If we bind the new mini story to  an installment oft the original game then we could use the normal names.

This is supposed to be bundled with the engine and should work even if you haven't bought the game, that's why we can't use anything from the game.

I have a story idea in the back hand but I fear Q-gears isn't ready for it nor the spare time I have.

It's basically the pre story for FF7. The story is about how the Cetra could seal 'Jenova', why this has doomed them and how the Summons were created. The Baseline for the story is the tale of Beowulf. The main Characters are Wolf (looks like Zack), Falk (a white haired guy...) and Frei (Aerith). Name of the Game:
Legendary Fantasy 7: Elemental Crisis

The game foreshadows a few things and leads to a different interpretation of the happenings in FF7. Something the official sequels were unable to do.


The game starts with the young version of Wolf (16). After he became a Lord of a land (35) the real story begins...

Here is a sketch of how I imangine Wolf could look like

I'd like to see a Before Crisis game made with FF7 assets, but that will go beyond your 20-30 minute gameplay stipulation.

We don't have to restrict it to 20-30 minutes, I just said that so people don't think we have to make a full game.  But what do you mean with FF7 assets?  We can't use anything from the game, things can be made to remind you of characters and things in the game but can't be exact

This project will start, with some friends we have made up a beginning to the rough story and started designing some levels...
The game will be in ff7 quality graphics for field backgrounds and NPCs as its faster to design the low quality fields because you don't have to pay attention to details as much.
The game will run on the latest version of Q-Gears and will hopefully motivate people to contribute to the qgears engine.
(And of course I will be posting pictures shortly)

Demo fields #1 (I know this is High Resolution, but it will be re rendered in low res for the actual field)

Here is an elevator scene that will be used somewhere in the story...

(This render is slightly older and is missing the control circuits and some pulleys for the doors.)

The story as of now is Aeris' childhood themed but not directly related, just themed that way.  Like all the names are different but remind of you of the characters from the game in a way but not exact.

Hopefully this will be a joint community project and everyone is welcome to participate in it, like recommend changes to the storyline, character model creation, field backgrounds or code changes!

The "very evil company" in this story will be EPC for now until someone can come up with a better name...
Here is the logo I just made for it: (Theoretically it is a metallic plate that can be attached to objects)

The logo will kinda be on every item/thing in the game made by them, like the shinra in ff7

Whoa! Almost forgot to mention what EPC means, you probably are wondering by now...
Its pretty generic haha, Electric Power Company!

hi , if I may , I find your scenes are too square and too clean, FF7 is a game that takes place in slums ...

The part of the game where Aeris is a child takes place in some "research laboratory" afaik from the text ingame so it has to look future-laboratory ish.
Correct me if i am wrong tho

Not all of FF7 is in the slums. Most of Midgar is, for sure, but the Shinra HQ, among other things, is definitely cleaner than the rest (as well as Don Corneo's mansion, and any other areas that represent wealth). That said, since this is a custom story and not part of FF7, there is room for reinterpretation. Making it cleaner than FF7 is definitely a valid choice.

I still found her too smooth .. A lack of detail, we would say more a stage to play a game like Lego or Playmobil, its lack of realism, fine model, but I find it a little more faudrais sudden relief, hump, finally his metal really do ...

It's fine for a concept. We are talking here about a game in a very early alpha stage. thanks to all the available game engines we get used to full graphical fleshed out games in alpha stages.

Updated the main post with a collection of all available assets to the project!  So newcomers know how much already has been done instead of a simple post with just text, eww!  We all like shiny images.
