LashkarDemo2: 6 Vehicles

Post by ahmedali » Thu Jun 21, 2007 1:45 pm

This project was done for Softec2007 exhibition in 1.5 months, I droped the idea of integrating OpenSteer this time (had no time for it). Nothing interesting about this demo, this was a waste of time but anyhow just wanna share in exhibition to give awareness to public about game development.

Please read the README FIRST.txt file

I barely got 20 fps on my Intel945g so I have no idea how it will work on other faster graphics cards. So you can edit the OgreOde stepper paremeeters in an .ini file. See Readme.txt for more info and controls.

Input Controls
You can also plugin a Ps2 controller for analog controls of all vehicles.

I could imlement a simple use Key for entering/exiting vehicle but was just being lazy.

Code: Select all

WASD            Camera Controls
PAGEUP/PAGEDOWN Camera Up/Down
MOUSE MOVE      Camera Controls, Tank Aim.
SHIFT           Camera Speed 20x
LEFT-CONTROL    Camera Speed 150x

F5		3rdPerson camera
F6		3rdPerson camera, free orbit
F7		Fixed Camera, Track 

TAB             Cycle next nearest Target or Vehicle
INSERT          Enter Targeted Vehicle
DELETE          Exit Vehicle

SPACE           Tank & JetFighter: Fire at target
LEFT MOUSE      Tank: Fire at target
MOUSE MOVE      Tank: Move turret 
NUMPAD-KEYS     Controls all Vehicles
NUMPAD "0"      Car/Rikhshaw Handbrakes, for skidding too.
+/-		Helicopter: altitude

F2              Show/Hide on screen captions
F3              Show/Hide object selectors
F4              Show/Hide BetaCairo 2D Radar

Ok I havent tested this on any machine and it took 5 hours to upload from my mobile connection... The car behaviour is not realistic at all but its stable than most Car Physics sims you see every day, you can also do skidding. Derived from carworld.sourceforge.net. Other vehicle physics are barely realistic, but I like to use different approaches for eperimentation purpose. About physics, the goal was to fake real but control simple. OgreOde had a problem with large scale terrain so I used a simple spring for tank & boat.

DOWNLOAD ( NOT a direct link) 20 MB zip
http://prdownload.berlios.de/lashkar/La ... otypeB.zip
Please report any problem, so i can do something about it.

SOURCE
TODO: refactoring, removing junk, borring stuff, will take a few days.

DISCLIAMER
Almost all the models & sounds are downloaded from free sites. Except I grinded them to reduce polygons to 15% of originals and added GI baked textures.

FUTURE WORK
Im a student of commerce, now going to do Masters in Business, Im a seasonal programmer, I planned to make a C&C Tiberium+Mechwarrior non-multiplayer game years ago when I was a noob. Now I have some prelimnery success on Farcry like editor, steering behaviours, pathfinding, general & highlevel ai components, component based object system, lua scripting etc. After working & researching in different areas im finally working to create an integrated project to make my dreams come true. So as I progress I learn more, but im almost out of time and resources, and have obligations to my family and alien education. Dispite all odds Im very persistant on this.

You wrote that and can control all those different vehicles in 1.5 months? Very nice! I'm looking forward to trying this when I get home, if I can get my desk finished setting up.

BTW, someone else on this forum found out that not all PS2 adapters map the buttons the same way. I'm not sure how dependent you are on the buttons, but you may get complaints that some things are odd with that.

Very nice demo.
But I got some strange behavior with the boat. When I try to move backwards it flies up into the air, at about 1000 km/h, and at the same time nearby Russian Tank starts flying too :).

EDIT: Tried it some more, car physics and artwork are just great!
