I’ve been playing around with Amazon Lumberyard for a while now. I installed it when they announced it back in February. But I had issues getting the editor to run with decent fps. They were an important presence at GDC 2016 as well. I talked to one of the developers recently and they helped me configure the game engine for better framerate. I finally get to play around with it.
I’ve been following the Introduction documentation and things are very well explained. There are few hierarchical issues that came up while going through different parts of the editor. Other than that, its been a smooth sail.
About an hour into the documentation, I’ve already setup the classic Lumberyard voxel like setting for a township.
I’ve also got the robot guy (third person camera) running around the city.
