Hey everyone

I decided to join the PGD annual competition this year and for this game-project I'll make heavy use of DeleD. I've been programming for a couple of weeks, and so far I've made two DeleD plugins that help me generating game content. Smile

My game will be a racing game where you drive a futuristic vehicle through a tunnel. It will be really fast and there will be lots of enemy's, obstackles and explosions. Very Happy
The DeleD plugins i made help me to build the racing track. This track consists of segments.

You can create segment prefabs (so called SegmentBodies) with the "SegmentGen" plugin, and modify them in DeleD until they look good. The next step is to start the "TrackEd" plugin to build a track with these "Segment bodies". I've written some mathy code to transform and bend these bodies, so that they can form a racing track. Smile I also make heavy use of the Tags to add usefull meta-data which is used by the engine for various tasks.

Enough talk.. some screenshots:

The segment generator:



The generated segmentbody:



A piece of a track



A finished, lightmapped track:



The inside of the tunnel:



As you can see, lightmapping really improves the atmosphere inside the tunnel. I'll definitely use it in the game. Razz

I might release the plugins someday, but I dont think they will be very usefull for general-purpose modelling because they are specificly designed for my game. Also, I can't really give any support for them because I've lots of other projects to focus on (for example my UV-plugin, my game-engine, and this game ofcourse).

So, this is what i've been working on this summer. Hope you guys like it. I'll keep you posted. Wink

My first impression: awesome work! Very Happy

I like the game idea itself and I can see a really cool game coming from this. Keep it up!

That looks awesome. It's also going to be one difficult track to navigate. Great going. Keep us posed with new screenshots so we can see how this is comming along.

I've made a texture for the track, just as a test. Here are some other pics:





Coding is going quite slow. Very busy with studying. Confused
