[Released] Aliens Not Waterfalls
« on: February 07, 2014, 06:06:18 pm »

 Hi all,
 Just been learning the .js commands and made a video of some of the weird and wonderful things you can make already with this eraly iteraion whilst learning and having fun .
 sone of it is lazy like the joint splits , i could of diguised better but i think when animation possibilitty comes it will be better to spend more time there :)
hope you like Aliens and Waterfalls


 apologies i really dont know what i did to my stero mix recording of sound ;(

 haha
 well now you can have VGI nightmares :)


  I have released the unpackaged  download and put inside  user/outerra/packages/DeanosBeano
  maybe you dont need create the DeanosBeano folder you can put inside your own.

 When in game you realice when press C camera is in front not behind  , make camera go to back by holding right MSB and zoom in using MSW

 there is anomoly the thing is facing backwards , i hadnt realised sorry but it works same  W is actually forward etc because i reversed wheel force  :)

 please feel free to modify and  adjust but please if you make it feel better let me know here  , i dont mind if you release in your own name etc just small credits as this is  asked for :

What a nice little shiny fella ! And he can moon-walk ! :D

Waterfall looking great - didn't notice you can do animated textures. Will probably ask ya for it later to inspect.

Interesting idea ... could you show how the counting variable looks ? And dont forget ABBA ! :D :D :D

 Sure  , first i use a small proigramme  called  Timeline FX and it can output strips/gifs or individual texture with Batch number :)

 then set 32 frames in blender with seperate material file  becuase it will be diff in Outerra each one of course

 then in JS  i do following but obviously for all frames 

 Step 1
 Get all meshes fore example
Code: [Select]
frame1_id = geom.get_mesh_id('frame1');
// all way to 32

# step 2
then Hide all meshes

Code: [Select]
geom.set_mesh_visible_id(frame1_id, false); /// all to 32
# Step 3
 create a counter
Code: [Select]
_x = 0;
 #step 4
 Add value to variable and make if statement to activate certain Hide Unhide of mesh dependant on value of variable
 
Code: [Select]
  _x = _x + 1 ;
 

  if (_x > .01) {
geom.set_mesh_visible_id(frame1_id, true);
geom.set_mesh_visible_id(frame2_id, true);
  }
 
    if (_x > 4) {

geom.set_mesh_visible_id(frame2_id, false);
geom.set_mesh_visible_id(frame3_id, true)
  }

 Of course many drawbacks  with using oneach Frame like this FPS can make slow stream or torrent depending where looking and polycount of scene , im sure maybe there is max min fps etc somewhere  but hey it works for me as a test ;)

  I am self taught only one week with . JS so im sure more efficient ways will come maybe with case switc and things  bu i believe better to learn like this than from  a book or person shouting to me " ffs do it like this " hahaa

 anyway ultimate is Particle billboards and i sure they come sometime , i`m in no rush , my last Hobby like this i waited 13 years almost to watch the engine develop and altho it was in the end Too big for the sum of its parts , i loved every minute and well here  i am again loving this one so far ;)

 I had an Idea at work today and put it down quickly in .JS soon as i got home lol , i was thinking a way to do some Gibs , I have a busy RL this week so really have to just put things down and work on them at the weekend so for now i present an idea  :

 
Hips Lips and Psuedo Gibs


 Reason it doesnt gib on first contact cause i use a variable  in the .js that is = 0 at start and increments during movemnent so when i hit a second time that value is > 0 and so effect is evident , not much special but thought i would point out :)

WOW. I wasn't expecting that. So you can make wheels fall off vehicles if it is coded as such.. Like a very basic damage model?

In theory yes (added later :you can make it appear to but not actually seperate)  but at moment i have to work out if a geom is rotating and you also want to move it
 must i first stop the roatation and then apply the movement .
 obviously the most vital thing is input , at moment there is no real "Hit" input so its really a psuedo define ,
 you could do some math about speed drop or direction change etc which would be excellent things to learn from and manipulate.
 Most things i do now are really just applying methods that are work around in terms of input  but the output is actually useful especially when i ventually apply some sin and cos math these can provide some nice paths for objects 

 obviously i am very new here  so i might have missed abaility to set evlocity and createvehicle /object via .js or maybe global variables from an objects .js can be applied to another object that would be dream stuff at this early stage
