An easy to use game engine/framework for python.

Banner

Getting Started

  1. Install Python 3.6 or newer. https://www.python.org/downloads/

  2. Open cmd/terminal and type:

     pip install ursina
    

If you want to install the newest version from git, you can install like this:

    pip install git+https://github.com/pokepetter/ursina.git

If you want to easily edit the source, it's recommended to clone the git repo and install as develop like this. Make sure you have git installed. https://git-scm.com/

    git clone https://github.com/pokepetter/ursina.git
    python setup.py develop

Also install any of the optional dependencies you want from the list below, or install them all with:

    pip install ursina[extras]

On some systems you might have to use pip3 instead of pip in order to use Python 3 and not the old Python 2.

Dependencies

  • python 3.6+
  • panda3d
  • screeninfo, for detecting screen resolution
  • hurry.filesize, for converting bytes to megabytes
  • pillow, for texture manipulation
  • psd-tools, for converting .psd files
  • blender, for converting .blend files
  • pyperclip, for copy/pasting

Examples

from ursina import *            # this will import everything we need from ursina with just one line.

app = Ursina()
ground = Entity(
    model = 'cube',
    color = color.magenta,
    z = -.1,
    y = -3,
    origin = (0, .5),
    scale = (50, 1, 10),
    collider = 'box',
    )

app.run()                       # opens a window and starts the game.

How do I make a game?

Ursina games are made by writing Python code. You can use any text editor you want, but personally I like to use Atom.

  1. Create an empty .py file called 'ursina_game.py'
  2. Copy this text into your new file:
from ursina import *           # this will import everything we need from ursina with just one line.

app = Ursina()

player = Entity(
    model = 'cube' ,           # finds a 3d model by name
    color = color.orange,
    scale_y = 2
    )

def update():                  # update gets automatically called by the engine.
    player.x += held_keys['d'] * .1
    player.x -= held_keys['a'] * .1


app.run()                     # opens a window and starts the game.
  1. Type this in the terminal to start the game:

    python ursina_game.py
    

    If you use Atom, I recommend installing the package atom-python-run to tun your scripts with the press of a button.

  2. You can now move the orange box around with 'a' and 'd'!

    To close the window, you can by default, press shift+q or press the red x. to disable this, write 'window.exit_button.enabled = False' somewhere in your code.
