88Bug ReportTest unit the project publishingCriticalNew
1SpiderMack12.05.201818.05.2018 Ticket Description

I published an isoladed project.
I won’t know why, but Skyline gives many errors while there is only one scene with one material.
Running the game and press “new game” there is a yellow empty screen with frame rate display on top left ?

Assets always point to Skyline installation and not the project directory.
On game manager clicking ass scene it also points to Skyline installation and not the project directory.

Please do test unit :
- create new empty project
- Add empty scene with player camera and controls
- publish
- test published game menu and scene loading

Thank you.

86Bug Reportentity.getWorldOrientation() - Not working with spawned...HighNew
1planetX03.05.201803.05.2018 Ticket Description

This function only works with entities present in the editor. If the entity is spawned by script, it doesn’t get the quaternion values. Always get (1,0,0,0)

85Feature RequestsImplementation - Navmesh DetourNavMeshQuery functions LowNew
SpiderMack16.04.2018 Ticket Description

There is important Navmesh functions to create advanced AI.

Many are already included in Detour Api, Skyline just needs to interface them to Lua.


Used a lot to create dynamic AI moving everywhere around the player

dtStatus dtNavMeshQuery::findRandomPointAroundCircle(dtPolyRef startRef, const float* centerPos, const float maxRadius


Faster than physics raycast when testing environment, and usefull to identify static walls and obstacles
dtStatus dtNavMeshQuery::raycast(dtPolyRef startRef, const float* startPos, const float* endPos


Navigation cost.
Can be used to compare two possible destination cost or used for gaemplay like checking if sound propagation reaches a destination.

float dtQueryFilter::getCost(const float* pa, const float* pb,


Closest point into a boundary poly
dtStatus dtNavMeshQuery::closestPointOnPolyBoundary(dtPolyRef ref, const float* pos, float* closest)


Gets the path in an array of points, it can be usefull to let the user use the path and create it’s own movement code.

dtStatus dtNavMeshQuery::findPath(dtPolyRef startRef, dtPolyRef endRef,

84Bug ReportNavmesh rotation issuesLowNew
SpiderMack14.04.2018 Ticket Description

It’s a little better; but there is still notable rotation issues with navmesh when the character start a new destination.
Rotation stabilizes after some second, but rotation should be controled and smooth.

A rotation speed should also be available as Navmesh parameter to control how fast a character would turn.

83Bug ReportFeature Request - Asset Manager point to project locati...LowRequires testing
2SpiderMack14.04.201818.04.2018 Ticket Description

You load a project the Asset Manager points to Skyline installation.

When you load an existing project, the Asset Manager should always point to the new project folder structure and location.

81Bug ReportStop the ability to readd an action that is already app...HighNew
Jayce Young05.04.2018 Ticket Description

Skyline lets you add 2 or more actions of the same name to the entity but does not support adding multiple same actions.
It can then cause unforseen things to happen like scene load issues.

We need skyline to not let you add any more actions of the same name to an entity and display a message box when you do.

80Bug ReportScene Upgrader gets stuck on scene loadHighNew
Jayce Young05.04.2018 Ticket Description

Scene Upgrader gets stuck on scene load if any entities have 2 or more actions that are the same on an entity.
It causes a loop to happen due to array sizes going out of whack.

the simplest solution is not use multiple actions of the same name on an entity in the first place, however there is no error catching. See other ticket about this.

Bug brought about from @rockStahr from discord.

79Feature RequestsMaterial Sub panel to show material namesLowNew
Jayce Young05.04.2018 Ticket Description

TattieBoJangle has requested that the material sub panel show the material names on the icons so you know what material is assigned.

76Feature RequestsFeature request - Navmesh is destination insideLow1New
SpiderMack18.03.2018 Ticket Description

Navmesh needs a function telling if a destination is inside navmesh or not.
This can be used by AI to know if some destination can be reached.
It’s often used with AI and random movement, fleeing, wandering or other behaviours.

75Feature RequestsFeature request - Physics shape adjust sizeLowNew
SpiderMack17.03.2018 Ticket Description

Box collision size can’t quickly be adjusted in the physics properties.
For example adding a box collision to a tree objects,the box is too big and can be adjusted in the editor.
It’s the same for other physics shapes.

74Bug ReportMesh Merger bugsLowNew
SpiderMack16.03.2018 Ticket Description

It’s a great tool for optimization.

But when two models are merged , the resulting model doesn’t look like the two combined and the texture does not look the same.

And merged meshes doesn’t keep their relative offset when merged

73Bug ReportSun light reset bugLowNew
SpiderMack16.03.2018 Ticket Description

How to reproduce the bug :
1) Under Light tools Change the sun light to a color.
2) Under render settings and ambient lighting, if you change Brightness it will reset the previous sun light color

72Feature RequestsFeature request - Directionnal LightLowNew
1SpiderMack16.03.201822.03.2018 Ticket Description

Like most 3D engine, add a new object type that is directional light users can place, remove or control with script.
It makes possible having several directional lights active or activated individually.
And remove Sun light parameters under light tools or make it optional.

71Feature RequestsFeature request - Regroup lighting and environment sett...LowNew
1SpiderMack16.03.201822.03.2018 Ticket Description

Lighting is scattered all around in Skyline, you discover some default parameters you must change are on Light tools for example you never got the idea it was here.

Those could be grouped on same window or same menu :
- Environment setup
- Sun light and Atmospheric hidden under light tools
- Post effects

70Feature RequestsFeature request - Tone mapping , DOF, color gradingLowResearching
3SpiderMack16.03.201822.03.2018 Ticket Description

Common post effects are missing to get better graphics.

-ACES tone mapping
-color grading
-chromatic aberration

This is the lighting tweaking lot of time in Skyline

69Bug ReportExport .exe bugLowNew
SpiderMack16.03.2018 Ticket Description

Exporting the game there is some error, while there is only one working scene specified as main scene in the game manager.

Why it is saying it doesn’t find the binary when the scene is working in the editor when testing ?

And launching 64 bit version it closes without displaying the main scene.

68Bug ReportNavBot bug when turningLowNew
SpiderMack16.03.2018 Ticket Description

The new Navbot using navmesh example works when you click somewhere it goes to the position.

But when it turns it’s very buggy turning into all directions at same time and it stabilizes after some frames.

67Feature RequestsFeature request- Nav Agent TurnSpeed functionLow1New
SpiderMack16.03.2018 Ticket Description

Navmesh API needs a function to allow us to setup the agent max turning speed.

Some characters could be heavy with lower turning speed.
It’s useful to tweak agent turning speed looking more natural and not too fast.

66Feature RequestsRTT - Render to textureMedium1New
epsilonion07.03.2018 Ticket Description

This is an old request.

Been able to render to texture using a camera in scene would help when making mini-maps, CCTV (say cameras in a prison and they monitor the inmates.

Been able to use a camera as a transmitter for Render to Texture would be awesome.

65Feature RequestsGUI Editor - Drag and drop of textures to be exposed High1New
1epsilonion06.03.201806.03.2018 Ticket Description

To expose dragging and dropping of textures feature that is already in the GUI system that is used..

This way you could easily drag from the inventory to the tool bar (press 1 for gun press 2 for medikit etc) that the player uses a sort of equipped items like you see in nearly every game these days..

It would save on time and workflow of users allowing them to quickly get a player system up and running asap..
it would replace having to code and track the mouse location while LMB is held and released to a co-ord on the screen and if that co-ord is xxx container then put it in slot xx.. then change textures of these slots etc etc..

Just using the existing system you could just use it through the hooks that could be exposed and miss half of the coding needed..

63Feature RequestsNavmesh componentLowNew
SpiderMack03.03.2018 Ticket Description

All features should be component based, actually Navmesh is a lua call , there is no component.

Skyline should get a nevmesh component.
There would be parameters exposed to component properties like acceleration , deceleration, distance min make navmesh stop, character radius if it could support avoidance.

Also some Lua functions would be needed :
- IsReachable for example, telling if destination position is inside navmesh
- Lua Access to the result array of navmesh calculation if users want to do something else with the calculated path.
- Lua Stop and resume functions , to be able to interrupt a path navigation and resume it if necessary.

62Feature RequestsWeb Access / DRM usage etcLowNew
1epsilonion03.03.201803.03.2018 Ticket Description

I have been thinking about the endgame and if Skyline releases to the steam distribution platform.

Steam seems to be very easy to crack every piece of software/game is available as soon as it comes out via torrents
This way you could create your own DRM to an effect...

Pull data from a steam purchase to a database on your dedicated server/VPS.
When your game loads ask user to login and use there steam email address
Check the email address against your database. etc..

To do this you would have to have access via LUA and pass secure information to and receive it from the server..

1. Lua Web Socket Handles SSL, encryptions etc etc..
2. Use raknet but you would have to write your own Lua lib to work around passing data into lua via curl and passing teh certificate in lua code.

Option 2 would be better for later development when SGE exposes C++ or C# i guess.. and exposing all C++ libs to C# would mean that developers can do this them selves..

53Feature RequestsSupport GLTF 2.0 format for extended 3D model exchangeLowDelayed
SpiderMack20.02.2018 Ticket Description

GLFT2.0 is a modern format for modern rendering.

Some engines have open source import/export plugins.

It has some advantages over Collada or FBX formats :

GLTF is a JSON based format. It’s very easy to parse and the data already comes typed.
glTF allows specifying an external file for the big data, in binary format.
glTF’s file structure is crystal clear. No extra or redundant data exists. There is only one way the scene definition can be understood
glTF 2.0 fully supports skeletons and morph targets, which can be parsed easily and unambiguously.
It supports PBR based materials using the Disney/Unreal format, which is what most engines and 3D modelling applications use nowadays
It also handles two-sidedness and transparent materials, including alpha to coverage.
glTF 2.0 supports multiple animations per file,it also supports many key interpolation types, such as Catmull Rom and Cubic Spline.

glTF is developed by individuals from companies such as Microsoft, Unity, Google, Adobe, NVidia, Oculus, etc. in collaboration with Khronos.

46Feature RequestsCollision volumes without rigidbodyLowNew
3SpiderMack18.02.201818.02.2018 Ticket Description

Skyline does not have collision volumes objects without rigidbodies.

This is what is used to create hitboxes, collision zones, character or other objects composed of multiple collision parts.

Those collision volumes are used to have collision and detect collision against other objects or detect collision for raycast. Or to get ragdoll feature possible.

This is mostly used in games for characters , vehicles or any other dynamic entity.
Also used for static objects you want to create a simplified collision using some basic collision volumes.

45Feature RequestsGame analyticsLowNew
epsilonion17.02.2018 Ticket Description

Implementation of Game Analytics maybe a good feature for gaining analytics on the fly while users are playing the end game..

Commands could contain:

You can check for error that users may have, Player progression, Find your top performing audiences for future advertising, see how gameplay influences player retention,

42Feature RequestsFeature Request - Gen 1 Ocean SystemLow1New
1epsilonion16.02.201822.03.2018 Ticket Description

the Ocean system in gen 1 was powerful, easy to use and gave you all the options you could ever want (or need) at a couple of clicks of the mouse, this system would be wasted if not brought into the Second generation of Skyline Game Engine

41Feature RequestsFeature Request - Gen1 Volumetric clouds Ported to Gen2Low1New

36Feature RequestsMaterial sliders to shader rangeLowDelayed
1SpiderMack12.02.201812.02.2018 Ticket Description

Material sliders have sliders with big range values bigger than 1000.

It would be more accurate and better with slider range values be the same as shaders range values 0 to 1.

35Bug ReportRemaining properties when removing actionsMediumRequires testing

22Feature RequestsGetting NavMesh Data (helpful for AI programming)Medium1New
1epsilonion10.02.201811.02.2018 Ticket Description

I.e. get navmesh concave so you can get the npc to lean in and fire, the NPC would know that there is an object at a location because of the navmesh data and will know where corners are so it can lean while firing and stay in cover..

There are many many uses for Navmesh data in AI related programming and it gives you more precise control and positioning while seeking out cover than other methods (and the least time consuming) so much better then manually placing cover objects in a scene and getting the npc to position correctly on the corner, manually placing cover objects can be very very resource heavy especially if your doing a full 20km x 20km map.

You can use the Navmesh data with other flags/data on objects in a scene to let the NPC know its a small wall or a object that it can not fire over, overall its about getting the NPC positioning correctly.

This is the preferred method of most AAA and serious game makers.. :)

Anti aliasing, perhaps MSAA and a faster one like FXAA.
Soft particles for great effects.

12Feature RequestsDecal systemLow2Researching
2Hannah Young07.02.201813.02.2018 Ticket Description

Different decals systems

  • static optimized decals
  • dynamic with polling decals

I mean for example you have a pool of 30 bullet decals created at game start, when you spawn a decal somewhere it uses a decal from the decal pool list.
If you have spanwed the last 30 decals, next time it will take the first decal and position it to the new position request.

Game objects for click placement is great for fast decals.
Advanced decals bending on geometry would be a great addition later.

11Feature RequestsNavmesh functionsLow1New
Hannah Young07.02.2018 Ticket Description

CanReachPosition (Vec3) :
Returns if a position we ask is inside navmesh or not.
Can have many uses like checking goal position can be reached or random positions are inside navmesh.

NavmeshRaycast(Vec3 start, Vec3 goal):
Like physics raycast, but returns if there is some intersection in the navmesh from a start position to a goal position. It’s should be less expensive than raycast, but allowing to detect ground static obstacles.

10Feature RequestsAnimation callbacksLowNew
Hannah Young07.02.2018 Ticket Description

Be able to define functions names and position them inside animation.
This has lot of uses like footsetps, right attack timing or any other actions.

This can be done with timers, but callbacks will decrease the code lenght while making it lightweight.

9Feature RequestsBetter PrefabsLowNew
Hannah Young07.02.2018 Ticket Description

Skyline prefab system is more like a grouping system, when you drop one in the scene you got all group items in the hierarchy view.

Instead make a real prefab system, a prefab is a new file type, dropping a prefab in the scene displays only one object prefab without child objects in hierarchy tree.
It’s more clear and efficient.

8Feature RequestsDisable gravity per object LowNew
Hannah Young07.02.2018 Ticket Description

Why not proposing later a simple way of adding child objects with hierarchy view drag and drop objects.

6Feature RequestsMulti collision objects per objectLowNew
Hannah Young07.02.2018 Ticket Description

Be able to add mutliple collision volumes per object.
This could be usefull some times to get low poly approximate collisions.
Or a tool able to create some low poly collision volumes automatically from a mesh.

Those additions could be useful.

5Feature RequestsShow Hide object or folders in hierarchy MediumNew
Hannah Young07.02.2018 Ticket Description

Have a new icon on hierarchy list to show/hide objects or folders containing a list of objects.

This is usefull for level design, for example you could hide different group of objects similar to show hide layers.
For example you could hide roof top objects or large objects, to be able to view some interiors and start placing small props.

4Bug ReportCan't change capsule rotationMediumNew
Hannah Young07.02.2018 Ticket Description
