Hello guys, I want to create a survival game.
A brief description:
You spawn on a map(a huge map smth like minecraft world, tile based) and you must find your way to survive, cut trees, kill beasts, eat etc.
You will see you character from a third persion camera that is above you and ponited at you, smth like a birds eye.
I have to store objects position on the map, because the player will have the ability to drop items, and create wherever he wants.
I want to know if anyone ever tried to do smth like this and some ideas on how to create the map and how to create a positioning system.
I will apreciate any advice and if anyone would like to help me create the engine and make it public, please tell me.
Btw.. I found a game that suits my vision: http://www.dontstarvegame.com/
