Any plans to make a pseudo-3d (still entirely 2d) engine addon?

KyriakosCH:
It would really be useful. I suppose one way to do it would be to allow for simple rotations and perspective through a built-in image manipulator similar to the one in Gimp (and an alternative way would be to have those not even with the images rotated/twisted in real time, but allow for pics in a progression of such rotations and perspective twists).
In this way you could link everything up and allow the sense that the room is 3d.

Not sure if I can do something like this with the current engine (I doubt it, due to inability to ghost-move images, ie afaik they have to move to a point by passing a whole area?).

Slasher:
I think the nearest we may have is Khris' Rotation Module.. It was made for 3.0

Crimson Wizard:
If it's about 3D simulation with skewed/rotated bitmaps, then this may be done in script too. It will be relatively slow though and extra burden on CPU. To be fast it has to be real, then it will use gfx card and accelerated math.

I will link this older reply of mine to similar topic, because it contains some examples of 3D scripts in AGS (which may or not be relevant....): https://www.adventuregamestudio.co.uk/forums/index.php?topic=58131.msg636621378#msg636621378

Of course you can, you may set X and Y properties of any object by hand.

As seen from description, this module uses existing AGS functions, only making it more convenient.



PS. To answer the question directly, no there are no such plans atm. There are numerous other problems with the engine in the priority list. Frankly if I'd plan anything like this, I'd go real 3D support at least in terms of visuals.

KyriakosCH:
I'd love to have a 3d addon, for example making use of simple blender objects (low-poly). :)
I will also try the module Slasher linked, as well as experiment with some own ideas.

Cassiebsg:
Both Gurok and Scavanger have done some "looks like first person 3D stuff"...  (nod)
So, yes, it's possible.
