Polylands Open Sourced Survival Game
Welcome to the Polylands open source survival game available under a MIT License with a extra addition of crediting this Roblox Dev Forum Topic.
This means that you do give credit to the Polylands development team and all the contributors that have or still contribute to the project.
Polylands is in development for about 3 years now started by my good personal friend Wantsome555 and continued by me(Rangblade) with further updates and improvements.
Last year I did decide to open source the game under the MIT License agreement in which developers where free to use our code base with no requirements of crediting. However this year have we decided to adjust the license agreement to make sure that people will Credit Ranglade & Wantsome555 as the main creators of the open sourced game Polylands with as an addition a link to our Roblox Developer Forum topic which credits to all the amazing creators that contributed or still do contribute to our project.
Polylands is a true open sourced game that is meant to be developed by new and experienced developers with the freedom of creating your own games, mashups or modifications to/on top of it. I myself do try to bring updates to the game every day of course is this not possible and do I try to bring consistent updates by the week.
A project like this is for me just a way to contribute to the community so it has no work pressure and can easily postpone work for several weeks which is why it’s great if “You” the developer community step in and contribute to the project by modifying files, changing code, adding unique non free model models, animation and sounds to the game available for other developers to work with.
The best thing is to simply share a download link to your Roblox Place file with in there a Read-me file with all the changes you have made(If you did make script changes put the line numbers on which these changes where made in the Read-me file)
Remember the game is open source and free for everyone to use and to contribute to and when making use of the files you are free but not permitted to contribute your changes with me in the topic here however it would be very kind and nice of you to contribute to the project.
UPDATES & PROGRESS
In comments on this topic am I sharing the updates and changes I have made to the game including a download file with the latest changes.
These posts include images of the changes to code, added features, improvements and bugs that where fixed to help you really understand what’s going on.
I do plan to start a YouTube channel for Polylands to actively upload the update videos on but to also cover community contributed updates on and already or in the future will be implemented into the game.
Currently am I having the idea to upload the entire game to GitHub with the ability for contributors to create there folder in the contribution branch where they upload a Roblox place file with there changes.
This way we can have 3 main branch types
- The Master branch which is the up to date branch with the releases that will be available for download here in the topic.
- The Update branch which is the branch in which I work on updates, bug fixes, new features and improvements.
- The Contribution branch which is the branch where people can create folders in that include either a simple Roblox place file with changes or the entire code spread up in folders so that they can be easily modified in use cases with Rojo as an example for when you would love to use external code editors such as Visual Studio Code.
The way this all would work is that you use the Contribution branch as a branch in which people can download your modifications and changes but where I use exciting changes and great improvements to add them into the official Master branch as a stable update.
If you would be interested in a official GitHub Repository for Polylands then feel free to contact me in a private message or by simply adding that in a comment to this topic.
