Hi folks,

A competition for artists to design a 3D car game level is nearing the deadline of the 16th of April.

There is a separate section for Lightwave.


If you would like to take part, you can complete a basic 30 minute tutorial ( on Macromedias website ) here...

The software can be downloaded for free from here, along with instructions etc...

Here are screenshots from some sample levels to give you inspiration!

If you know any other artists who might be interested in designing a vehicle based game level ( think GTA, or whacky races ), feel free to forward them this information.

Also, if you are a member of a 3D forum who has members who might like to design 3D models for games, feel free to re-post this information as well.

Good luck!

Iíve actually played around with this game software before and itís really great. My m8 made the back to the future game thatís on there site in his 2nd year at university and he knocked that out in about a week with no game making or moding experience at all.

I never really post here I just come to read the threads but I thought I should say something since I have used the car game software.

whacky races


Mmm...I made some whacky races vehicles awhile back :hey:

It seems it's pc only and in any case, I'll be away from a computer for the next 3 weeks.

Oh well.

Hi Kuzey,

Cool looking models!!!

The app is also Mac compatible, there are instructions for running it ( there is a file called Mac OSX RunMe.htm ).

For Macs, there is one additional step, which is to place all of the files in a folder called dswmedia ( Director ShockWave MEDIA ), running the previous file will give you these instructions.

If you get 30 minutes later on ( well, 10, judging by your models, you should fly through it ), you could try out this tutorial, and then try replacing the van with one of your models ( just call it carSkin )

:agree:

I've got at least five Lightwave/Director students who will probably be entering this contest! I personally found this method very exciting. There were many potential additions and adaptations. The most fun for me was adding fiery, smoking rings for the car I made in Lightwave to leap through as it travelled up a ramp against a countdown.
