    [GAME] YAG (rpg gameboard)

    Hey everyone,

    I am developing YAG, a networked RPG table with UE4 in c++.

    Click image for larger version  Name:	YagInOnePictureSmall.jpg Views:	1 Size:	323.9 KB ID:	1550430

    YAG stands for "Yet Another Gameboard" and takes care of the following for you:
    • Dungeons: multi themed procedurally generated dungeons -using the amazing Dungeon Architect plugin-
    • Miniatures: hundreds of animated 3D characters and creatures (characters can be equipped with hundreds of weapons/spells/objects)
    • Dice: fully customizable 3D rolling dice
    • Character sheets allowing you to roll prepared dice formulas

    Here's the trailer:


    And a 5 minutes presentation:


    You can see more on the official screenshots page.

    If you're really interested, there is a youtube tutorial videos playlist in english and french that will show you everything there is to know.

    Finally if you have time, you can read the full list of features.

    The game is mostly finished, i'm currently preparing the Steam page for a public release in the forthcoming weeks i suppose, unless a serious bugs is found in the meantime.

    EDIT: Yag now has a Steam page :-)

    I don't have a lot of testers so if you're interested in trying it before release, please PM me and tell me how many people you want to play with, i can provide a few steam keys for you and your friends.

    I only ask in return that you tell me everything that's wrong with the game so i can fix small things before release, or postpone the release in case of a catastrophy :-)


    EDIT: the release should arrive soon so i'm ending the beta tests. Thanks to all the testers :-)

    Cheers
    Cedric

    EDIT:
    There seems to be some misunderstanding about what Yag is :-) so to be clear, Yag is not a game you can play alone, in fact it's not a game, it's really a shared rpg gameboard.
    You should see it exactly as a table in the real world: you have to sit around with friends to play any game.
    Yag is like a virtual table equipped with all the tools needed to play any game, and of course especially RPGs.
    You can launch it alone, for example to prepare a scene or a map and save it for later, but it's exactly like sitting alone at a real table to prepare your game.
    Yag gives you dungeons, miniatures, dice, maps, and character sheets, but you and your friends have to bring the rules and the game :-)
    Hope it's more clear by now.

    Hello AriesBreath,

    Very good idea, this could be a great workaround for the absence of FOW, thanks a lot for that, i've added that to my R&D todo list :-)

    Thanks !

    Hello, I was searching for a good VTT for a long time, every one I find does seem to lack something that I need. YAG is a totally new approach from what I normally see. In the list feature I read that it lacks Fog Of War for perfomance due, that is something that i really need, coupled with character view and special view (darkvision and such).

    Have you thought about this system?:
    Every pawn (let's call it Character) has an editable sphere (radius, section, sight type) attached, that is his field of view. When the Fog Of War is active, every other pawn (monster, enemies, neutral NPC and map parts beside the terrain) is by default invisible to that Character until his sphere intersect other pawns, rendering them visible to that Character. In the same way, when the sphere doesn't intersect other pawns anymore, they return invisible for that Character.

    In this way, when the Fog Of War is active and a player is using a Character, he can only see what his Character sees, without the DM switching pawns between visible and invisible.

    I think that this way there would be some more work setting the invisibility for spells and such but I think that the DM would have a much better time when playing.

    I added an hexagonal internet pawn in v0.8.4.2:

    I can't put it right now on the beta branch because i play tomorrow with some friends on beta and updating is a painfull process for some of them due to low bandwidth.

    So i will put it on the beta branch in 2 days.

    In the meantime, if you want to try it, i put it on the alpha branch.

    Cheers
    Cedric

    Thanks a lot !
    And that's the intention, there's still so much to do to get Yag to be a respectable and comfortable VTT :-)

    Cheers
