Building BIG games (and mmos) w/ unity

If you want to build large scale games in unity, unreal, or any other engine, these are 12 of the important rules you’ll want to follow. We’ll start with tips that I’d recommend for any type of game, single player, multiplayer, fps, rts, etc.. then transition into a few rules that are very specific to MMOs and online games. We’ll talk a bit about solid principles, refactoring, cleaning code, testing, networking, what to trust, and a whole lot more.

  • I think your description of flyweight pattern at ~9:00 is misleading, it's not about using a single instance , well it is when you can , but it's primarily about splitting classes to allow them to use less memory when you have many instances by storing shared data in a shared object.

    When i was like 11 years old, microsoft Ants… i kinda knew a bit of c++ and then found a free memory editor. Found out i could easily just change my score, then everyone in the game would see me as the winner….
    Same thing foe the maps. I was able to break about the map files, grid based with lots of extra stuff, maybe layers? but i found out dozens of the tile pallet hex codes, and learned of the build in CRC, so -1 here meant -1 some place else. Well my map could be totally different than other players. So i could just make a flatmap, tons of high point food. While everyone else had the hard map to play on. They just saw my ants walking on water, through grass, picking up items that aren't there.
    No i never cheated, did lots of testing and learning on the stuff in private games with my sister.

  • "naming your variable bad for job security", obfuscation? isn't there a law against this, against obfuscating your customer's code so no one else can fix it with out it costing your customer huge amount of money in man hours?

  • I understand the job security angle. I had the same thought as an early freelancer.
    I even made spaghetti on purpose until I decided it was best to work for reputable people and follow best practices.

  • I would love to see an up-to-date beginners video or series on making multiplayer games with a sever client environment

  • truthfully the more simple your coding the better for me personally, i think the build of the setting of the game should be far more complex than that of codes in UNITY, anyone can download decent codes for free and just alter them! im working on ps5 games now, and cannot wait to sell them in my near future on ps5 exclusive thanks for the video brother God bless

  • Great stuff! Definitely would love to hear about pretty much anything related to MMOs or even just developing simpler networked games. Some topics I might wonder about are: 1) different genres and their derived requirements for possible implementation architectures, 2) taking one MMO and just going over how it's generally structured or maybe going over one specific area in more detail, 3) could there be recommended road map to networked game development (technical aspects as well as team specs) as going from a "normal" game to an MMO is quite a leap, 4) MMO history and general problems and solutions developers have come up with 5) MMO future and possible advancements and tools that might help 6) recommended reading, books, resources…..I could go on and on I guess, sorry 🙂

  • Hey Jason thanks for this, really great. Those first minutes on general dev maintainability is just such a fantastic guide for all devs u could consider uploading it as standalone for all devs? Just brilliant 🙂

  • when it comes to long variable names, I find it pretty hard to read code when there's a bunch of long ass variable names being put into a bunch of math functions or something, it just looks like a mess.
    So readability is usually the reason that I do abbreviate things, at least for local variables. I can understand not wanting to give instance variables unreadable names, but IMO, really long names make it easier to understand the variable itself while making it harder to read the functions they are in. I die a little inside when I can't think of a name for an instance variable that simultaneously describes it well and is less than a couple words

    Good habits.
    Excellent video.

  • About 2:45 – code so bad that gives you job security. I'm a seasoned developer, not game dev though. I've seen this on more than one occasion and it's a real thing, though I never met anyone being so upfront about it. This is a form of gatekeeping, and it unfortunately works well in bigger companies as these people will usually be in higher positions.

  • I am coming from a different part of the development industry, why does it sound like no one in the game dev ever do things like production builds?
