This is the part I'm most concerned about... who will actually be doing programming?  Might as well shot down the project now if no one is willing.

Surely more like who is able? Seems like they'll be the designated drivers considering not many people can do it. Since this is using Unity as well right? How much programming is necessary? Can others simply use the program itself to create the more front end stuff while the coding chimponaut does the difficult and unappreciated stuff.

We could put down a list of who is capable of programming a game over here... Then see who will take the lead on it I suppose?

It'd be quite interesting to hear who is actually able to do something like that :xd:

I for one am able to program, but currently don't have the time... So only if I'm the only option will i consider being the "main man" on this project programming wise...

Luckily Unity3d isn't the worst of engines to work with, most of the classes are already done and you can in theory avoid a lot of entropy just by that.

 

Once you have a code that works well for vehicles, you've done half the job.

duke is by far the most experienced guy in using Unity.

He should be the Lead Programmer. ;)

Luckily its quite modular, so if people prototype stuff its easy to integrate.

 

We should probably set up a github repository or something akin to it. Maybe we can manage with a dropbox account.

Ask DIGI for his project's code. ;)

It's worth a shot.

I'd rather ask if Digi would like to join up and sketch out some code here and there with us. But I've not heard from him in a while, and I'd hate to contact him just to try and steal him away from his own projects to ours. Still, can't hurt to ask.

I don't exactly have time to fully commit, but I'm generally around to answer questions/provide suggestions as I know my way around Unity quite well now.

Well you can do a few small programming projects, Nerty.  It'll get you in the credits, at least.

Yeah. It shouldn't be that hard. Unity provides examples about racing games: http://u3d.as/conten...ar-tutorial/1qU

 

Maybe we should start with the reverse engineering of this "asset"...

Maybe it's quite too realistic for what we need/want, but at least it's a start.

that project is sorta good, and you dont need to 'reverse' engineer it, it comes with a tutorial to MAKE that...

that project has some issues tho, specially the wheel colliders are glitchy and can be unstable at times, so they are a use with caution thing

Yeah, I saw there were other types of colliders around that costs cash, so I guess there are better options. But I guess increasing the iterations is a good start for prototyping.

if we had the interest, we could sit down and do a skype conference, we'd be able to talk and discuss things alot faster, down side is our time zones/work etc

as for the vehicle setup, since your cart style is simular to mine, basically you have a base game object, with a default size rigid body square (shaped to a rectangle) then just below it a smaller one as a 'foot' and this is a trigger ( no rigid body) and basically it works like this,

if 'foot' is colliding with "ground/Jump/etc" (skipping other objects such as water) and "acceleration key" is pressed, then move

as for moving, theres a few things to look at, the traditional way is to translate the object, however that can cause clipping issues, essentially translating the object through the ground, personally i preffer to 'apply force to local' and have it when the play wants to stop increase the drag

some logic will have to be involved to determin when and if the play can stop, reason being if you set the drag too 0.9 while they are flying/falling, you'd have issues
and the list goes on
shall i continue?

That's not terrible.  Whatever we make it, it should be small, or virtually displayed on the characters.
