Introduction to For Loops –

https://www.bitchute.com/video/uecTQDBZ38VJ/

This is the second of three Virtual Coder lessons, and this is their levels to teach for loops. For Loops are segments of code where you repeat the code within it the number of times defined by i in the code – if i = 3 it repeats 3 times, if i = 10, then it repeats 10 times.

It helps reduce the amount of coding you need to do if you need to repeat the same command more than once in a pattern.

Today’s lesson goes through levels 6 to 8 in Virutal Coder, with my explanation of what this works or why it doesn’t work for deliberate mistakes.

This week in Make Gaming Great Again, Feb. 10th, 2019

I had both a good and bad week last week. While I want to focus my efforts on this channel on my projects of making GamerGate Trolls and creating video game tutorials and I hardly ever talk about my personal life, I feel a bit of a need to get this off my chest.

While the work part is going pretty well, I am hardly keeping it together personally. My mom has dementia. She sees people in TV as family members. She can’t do much of anything anymore, and in the past month has proved she can’t even take care of herself anymore. And the support workers who come to her home 3 times a week, IMO, aren’t even helping!

This week, in particular, has been completely shitty – a soup I made the last time I showed up, I show up every Thursday, wasn’t even put away – that’s how bad my mom’s condition is – soup on the stove for an entire week, and her helpers couldn’t even be bother to put in in the fridge or dump it for being on the stove for too long!

I’m the only one who helps mom, so it’s completely disheartening. I hope we can get her into a nursing home soon, because trying to manage what’s going on with her, while creating my video game and game development videos for all of you is getting way too overwhelming for me. But I will go on.

Despite all of that, I am still managing to create a very fruitful channel – almost 3000 views on BitChute right now. I can’t believe it. That keeps me going guys. It puts a smile on my face, because every single week I am doing better than the week before. I am so very thankful every single one of you are coming to my lessons and watching them.

This week, I will be starting my first blender lessons – about 15-20 minutes long, showing you how to maneuver around the scene, how to manipulate the objects and how to change the viewport settings – getting you ready to jump into creating with Blender.

Of course, I will continue to create a video on Virtual Coder, focusing on For Loop levels this video, and anticipation for the Principles of Animation. With some ideas I’ve been thinking of, it will improve the flow of my videos a heck of a lot, so expect them a bit faster, not that much faster, but a bit faster.

Thanks for your support to make gaming great again!

Make Gaming Great Again, Jan. 20th, 2019

Man, this week of vacation was absolutely needed. I feel completely refreshed and ready for the next phase starting February.

I will be doing 34 episodes over Feb, March and April – 10 episodes for Blender, 12 episodes for the Principles of Animation, 11 episodes for the new coding App I found, that I shared around, and the introduction video. We’re are going all out for #gamedevelopment starting Feb. 4th.

Over the next couple of weeks, I have a lot of Prep Work – I want to get through all 11 levels of the #coding program, and most of the #Blender Episodes worked out and done, and some refresher course on the Principles of #animation.

Array Definition –

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Array_data_structure

This is the final introduction to coding video I am creating, Introduction to Arrays. Arrays are databases that contain data inside of them. In game design, this could be used to generate random opponents in random places, defined by an array of enemies that can appear on the map, and another array with spawning locations for those random enemies. With a function, you could randomize which enemy is going to spawn in which place because Arrays are numbered.

Since this is my last episode for coding, I’ll cover the rest of the lessons from SwiftPlaygrounds through solutions videos while talking about some basics on how this would apply to Game Development, but many of their lessons are strictly SwiftPlaygrounds lessons which allow you to gain some more experience in coding. My first such lesson will be on the Array puzzles next week.

Starting in February, I’m going to start to work on lessons on 3d modelling using Blender for art lessons. I’ve already see how I am going to accomplish this, I’ll teach you all how to make the Solar System and a little spaceship flying through it. SpaceForce FTW! I will create a little animation through Blender over the next three months to show you how to do all of this.

Thanks for supporting my channel over the past three months and Making Games Great Again!

Introduction to Functions –

https://youtu.be/xugrFZ_KBzU

Types are the blueprints of a group of similar objects in programming. With Types, we can define that group – like factions in video games – AntifaThugs are a Type. For each member of that Type, we have an instance of that type. Using the basis of variables that we learned in the last episode, you can use a variable to define which member of AntifaThugs that instance is with a variable that will be Int nAntifa = Antifa +1, with Var Int nAntifa = 0.

Then you can define what behaviours that instance will be involved in, by defining functions which allow those objects to do something that is being defined by the programmer, like attacking Trolly/Trollette, restoring their hp with a potion, etc, etc, etc.

This allows us to create programming which can look at individual behaviour of instances without making every single member of the group doing the exact same thing at the exact same time.

Thanks for watching and Making Games Great Again!

Variables are snippets of code which store a value of any random thing in your program or game. It’s used by game developers to dictate what object in a game does what to where and when, all things that are defined by Variables.

Looking at previous episodes, the Guards are their complete own variable, and Shopkeeps would be their own variable, the player character is their own variable, townspeople are their own variables, a door is a variable, and just about anything is a variable which is defined the developer. That way you can code further things to say Door193 will only unlock with Key039 and not any other key in your pack.
