A project where we as a team of five members convert a game concept document into a game during the development of ten weeks. The weeks are split into three phases, two weeks of pre-production, five weeks of production and three weeks of post-production.
Screenshots of the Final Assignment Version
- Sprites: Spr_“whos”_“insert purpose of sprite”
- Animation: An_“whos”_“insert action of animation”
- Concept Art: CoArt_“insert name”
- Code: CS_“insert what it’s for”_“what it does”
- Prefab: Obj_“type of object”
- If there several objects of the same type (for example enemies) then specify
- Unity tags should be in CamelCase notation. Capitalize the first letter and separating words. Ex ExampleTag
- Class names should be in CamelCase notation. Ex. ClassName
- Class properties should be in mixedCase notation. Ex classProperty
- Properties that are static should be all capitalized and separated with underscore. Ex STATIC_PROPERTY
- Names should be descriptive.
- Names should not be abbreviated.
- Follow naming conventions.
- Properties should be private to the extent it makes sense.
- Properties that should be accessible through the editor need to be public.
- Use Unity utility methods and constant variables when possible.
- Remove unused variables and properties.
- Comment only when explaining complex logic.
- Can you understand the changes, does the code do what is intended?
- Does the code follow the “Code standards”?
- Is there any redundant or duplicate code?
- Is the code as modular as possible?
- Can any global variables be replaced?
- Is there any commented out code?
- Do loops have a set length and correct termination conditions?
- Can any logging or debugging code be removed?
- Commit messages should isolate one change when possible. If you are adding an and to the message you can probably split the commit up into several commits. Remember that it’s better with a lot of smaller commits than with a few large onces.
- Commit messages should explain what and why you have changed something rather than how. The actual content of the commit already explains how so you don’t have to do it again.
- Limit the subject line to 50 characters.
- Capitalize the subject line.
- Do not end the subject line with a period.
- Use the imperative mood in the subject line (more information: http://chris.beams.io/posts/git-commit/#imperative).
- What is within the quotes is the subject line and the prefix is how it should be read, read the link for a detailed description.
- Example of good: If applied, this commit will “Refactor subsystem X for readability”
- Example of bad: If applied, this commit will “Fixed bug with Y”
- Example of how commit messages have a tendency to deteriorate, xkcd: Git commit.
