Hype for this game has just gone up 9001%, and I'm okay with that.

Yup.  Just chillin in the clouds and shit.  Like a boss.  Are those the ruins of some ancient Greek temple?  Probably.  Why are they in the clouds?  Who cares.

Actually, the cloud scene is something I had left-over from another project from days long past that didn't get very far.  I just put this guy in there for whatever.  Originally you were supposed to fly around the clouds on a broom but I never got that far.  Anyway, you can walk on the clouds here so that's where I put this guy.  It looks really simple but learning how this game engine works has been such a bitch you have no idea.  Right now I'm working on fixing the idle animation of the minifig guy.  You'll notice his arms sort-of stick out of his body.  Well, the way I posed him that should not happen, so, I'm trying to figure that shit out why it looks one way in Blender but another way in this sky scene.

Now you know why I was trying to temper your enthusiasm.
It really is complicated importing an animated character.

Looks like you sorted out weight mapping in Blender, to keep a point being effected by just one bone.

Did you move the shoulder rotation point out to the edge, like on the image I sent?

My enthusiasm has not been tempered.  After long hours of learning and work at this, I now have him as a really basic playable character.  The camera follows him like in an FPS, and he can walk and he can run.  Next I need to do strafing animations.  Check it out:

I did look at those screens and I got the shoulder joints closer to the edges.  Now the clipping problem is basically gone, it has a small triangle of a clip during the run animation, but I think it is more than tolerable, it's actually okay IMO.  I'm not using stock animations as you had suggested by the way, because he isn't like really humanoid.  I think for this guy it's probably best to just make our own anims, but I'm getting better and faster at it.  Like, I was already able to do it in MS3D but the switch to Blender forced me into a learning curve.

But where we're at now is once I get jumping, strafing, and crouching movements sorted out (which will take me at least a day I suspect) then I'm going to need some direction as to what kind of game this is supposed to be.  Is it like an FPS of Minecraft or an adventure or what?  I think building stuff should be just as important as killing people with the stuff you can build.  Also, guns.  Lots of guns.

Oh look, I gave him a simple backpack.  It isn't actually part of his model, it's attached to him.  This is the beginnings of figuring out how to make him hold weapons.

Next I need to fix the jumping.  I gave him a jump animation but the way I programmed it is bad and essentially lets him fly around the map, which is how I got to this little cloud.

I changed the web page.

Still haven't figured out how to make a Blender guy work.
I do have a few more ideas to try.

I made a Mac build and its on the web page.
If you try it, let me know if it works.

The beginnings of a simplified HSV color picker.
It has 10% steps between boxes.
I'm thinking of stepping by 5 Hues, Hue is 0 to 360.

Its a bit dark because of the light angle.
A final version would be part of the GUI and not effected by lights.
