    Default Skim: The Video Game

    So im trying to make a skimboard game, need some help/ideas

    Im using 3drad as the game engine. It pretty much a user friendly interface for making 3D game and has adjustable physics like G force and stuff along with animation support (Wave Breaking)

    Best thing about 3Drad is it uses 3d models you make using Google Sketchup(3D modeling program) which is like a 3dmax for beginners. When you export a model you made i sketchup to 3drad it almost automatically does collision detection and is also highly adjustable.

    So far im almost down with the level

    That A frame is only so close so its in the picture, it wont actually show up in game till the barrel passes by.

    The main thing I need help with is making the charactor in 3Drad, it involves 3d modeling and writing a basic script by hand for the actions, and im not sure exactly where the skimboard fits into that... if anyone has the skill thats my roadblock

    So if anyone has anything to contribute or wants to learn 3drad and make this heres what you need
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Otherwise how's my level look I know the waves are a bit akward positioning right now

    i dont think the waves will behave that realistically because it's really hard to model water. but this still pretty cool. better than any game there is now

    The idea is very good, has complicated things to discuss, plan in which language?

    I can help with scripts, I await your response available.

    Sorry for bad English.

    Yeah it's pretty hard so far, but basically it comes down to how many frames I put in the waves animation the more the smoother but still its hard to make it look realistic.

    i think the worth part is the waves..
    you gonna make just 1 wave ? or 2,3,4 tipes of the waves at the same beach?
    Id like to have a few different breaks so you dont get bored. Right now tho im focusing on one, the left you see in the pic, im still animating it and so far im not really happy with how it looks and I think the wall may be too vertical...I was thinking though it breaks foward a couple more "feet" then closes out.

    Anyway ill work on the wave today maybe show the animation later if it looks alright, im also going to be fixing up the beach level sizing as everything is off scale(dock too big,etc). If anyone has sick contest/skim logos collection id like o put some in the game somewhere (like billboards on the cliff or something)

    Im still havent looked into charactor model...probably gonna be a while before I even look into how.

    just a thought. in real life if its a left the breaking part of the wave is closer to the shore and the unbroken shoulder extends on an angle out to sea. in your model it is the other way around and it seems very unnatural.

    So sick dude, I was scared to open up this thread... I'm stoked that I did.

    I'll keep updated with your progress, if there are any programming related problems you run into I may be able to help.

    Good luck dude, pumped to see this come to fruition.

    Yeah, I originally pictured that wave to almost be a close out and not have such a low side, like peel to the left a little then crash so it wouldn't look so unnatural, cause I pictured the player maybe getting more time to trick with the weak side of the wave angled like that(kinda grind out then end up at the barrel). Ill have to see when I finish the animation

    But I think i going to have to maybe even use a totally different wave this one is rather difficult to edit.

    lol And 3d modeling is only half of it, you'll need this too http://www.3drad.com/documentation.htm

    Glad to see you picked up on sketchup tho

    I probably won't have pros at first, I dont have the modeling skills at the moment and charactor's aspect of 3drad is by far my weakest.

    I think he was actually planning on keeping it secret and not telling us.

    Great idea, good luck!

    Sweet thats the kind of stuff I need, Im not sure how the skimboard will be programed in the the player... I know its possible but im not sure if its going to be a seperate model or part of the player itself. Try to keep the images you post small so it doesnt fill the page up though

    Keep it up, But I can"t add really anymore unnessesary stuff(enviroment) anymore only really the player and skimboards otherwise I think it will make the game run and load too slow.

    Im not sure though I really like to turn that empty surf shop into a skim shop with brand name skimboards to switch change clothes/players maybe

    Also note that a lot of my model is made up of resized and modified models people uploaded on 3Dwarehouse, there some great ones some have editing issues though and are hard to change into what is needed.

    its possible make a sider ?
    Yeah it would be as easy as a regular but the path/animation would be more difficult to write in with the colliding wave. Plus this first level isn't really fit for one maybe though

    when you are done, post it on a website like addicing games or tell us which one you post it on.
    That will be the day...when it is though it will probably be a file you download and play offline. 3Drad also can compile it into a browser game but most sites like that are java and mine is far from that, so a website like *cough this *cough would have to put it up

    The skimboard should be a part of the rider, not separated i think, just in the hands and after the run it fall under the feet.

    Better do what you can to keep the board as a separate entity, I have a hunch on that.

    Of course he does but the skim and the skimmer can be the same 3d object with a space when doing shove its or what else, i just think it will be easier to make it whit the skimmer, if it's 2 different 3d objects it will be hard to program i think. (Sorry for the english, i'm french).
