3D Game Programming All in One
  • By Kenneth C. Finney
making the game world environment1
Making the Game World Environment
  • Skyboxes
  • cube that surrounds the player character
  • each inside face depicts a view in all cardinal directions, plus up and down
  • Skybox is never reachable by player character
making the game world environment2
Making the Game World Environment
  • Skyboxes
  • perspective correction of skybox images is necessary
  • skybox images need to be tilable
  • all images should be the same resolution
  • skybox image resolution can be mathematically optimized
making the game world environment3
Making the Game World Environment
  • Lab 1:Making Skybox Image
  • Use paint program to create a skybox
  • Practice making images tilable
  • Practice adjusting for perspective error
  • Introduction to material (DML) file
  • Test in game world
making the game world environment4
Making the Game World Environment
  • Cloud Layers
  • Create cloud textures with alpha channel
  • Multiple layers can be created
  • Layers move at different speeds
  • Layers are unreachable
  • Layers can be set to varying \'virtual\' separations
making the game world environment5
Making the Game World Environment
  • Lab 2: Creating clouds
  • Practice making cloud images with alpha channel
  • Practice adjusting cloud layer properties
  • More practice with DML file
  • Test in game world
making the game world environment6
Making the Game World Environment
  • Fog
  • limited volumetric fog
  • adjustable vertical height & thickness, but not horizontal depth
  • adjustable color
  • fog is enterable by player character
making the game world environment7
Making the Game World Environment
  • Storms
  • Torque has built-in storm generation capability
  • A storm is precipitation, fog, thunder, and lightning
  • Storm parameters are adjustable
  • Timing, gradual onset and ending
making the game world environment8
Making the Game World Environment
  • Storm Materials
  • precipitation particle images defined in a single PNG file with alpha channel
  • Precipitation particle image has 16 \'drop\' images in a 4x4 grid
making the game world environment9
Making the Game World Environment
  • Storm Materials
  • Lightning images defined in separate PNG files without alpha channel
  • Black color is used to define transparent areas of images
making the game world environment10
Making the Game World Environment
  • Lightning
  • Need a LightningData datablock
  • LightningData datablock points to lightning images with a DML file
  • Need a Lightning object definition
  • Lighting object points to the desired LightningData datablock
making the game world environment11
Making the Game World Environment
  • Rain
  • PrecipitationData datablock points to a DML file
  • A Precipitation object definition points to a PrecipitationData datablock
  • Rain only falls in an area around the player character
making the game world environment12
Making the Game World Environment
  • Lab 3:A Perfect Storm
  • use console to invoke a storm
  • combine use of Sky.stormCloud method and Precipitation.stormPrecipitation method
making the game world environment13
Making the Game World Environment
  • Waterblocks
  • Special objects inserted as part of a mission
  • tiled like terrain tiles
  • textures can be used, same as clouds
making the game world environment14
Making the Game World Environment
  • Terraforming
  • Torque Terrain Editor allows you to \'paint\' terrain
  • Adjustable brush can be used to add or remove dirt
  • Ideal method for quick terrain creation
making the game world environment15
Making the Game World Environment
  • Lab 4: Terraforming
  • learn the Terrain Editor
  • practice creating various terrain shapes
  • learn how to use \'fly\' mode
summary
Summary
  • Skyboxes, clouds, and water define a game world environment
  • Use Skyboxes to simulate distant horizons and sky
  • Use Cloud layers in the Sky object to define overhead cloud movement
  • Storms are the integration of cloud layers, fog, precipitation, and lightning
  • Use WaterBlocks to define bodies of water
