Well of course, due to my willingness to support to great people who are skilled in game development (like me hehe – hoping so). I spearheaded the creation of the Unity Philippine Users Group’s website http://unity3d.org.ph/ . Also i am only new to unity3d game engine, it has a rock solid platform for rapid development of games & apps that made me fall in love into it – like love at first try 🙂 –
3d interactive 101 : Make a 3d interactive in less than 5 minutes
Introducing Blender 3d – its a free 3d modeling software with built-in game engine.
download it at www.blender.org/download/get-blender/ try getting the oldest version for our tutorial (new ones are great but we wont need too much for now, just the basic. In this tutorial i only use version 2.25 so try downloading the same version) – why the old version? well, you don’t need an army to defeat an easy enemy – gamers thought 🙂
install it on your machine, make sure you downloaded the right installer for your operating system.
open the application – you will see gray interface with many thin lines like the photo below:
go to “camera view” – see “menu – view” at the top
right-click the vertical thin black line – (see photo below), and hit G key to grab it (its the camera), then drag it a bit upward to see the grid lines (default floor), then right-click to end the dragging & position it.
hit Space – you will see a pop up menu, click add – Mesh – Cube
click on the realtime button, make sure the cube is selected (its pink when selected)
add a sensor, just click it.. later we will adjust some option
then a controller, just click it again..
then an actuators, yes just click it..
connect the sensor to controller, by click & dragging the small gold icons to each other
add some parameters, find the dRot shift right click on the first column then put some numeric value, lets make it .01 value. this is actually adding local rotation X – to the cube (remember X Y Z axis? will explain it on my other tutorials later).
Back to the sensor – leftclick the button that says “always” and select “keyboard” – yes you just give it a user interactive option.
on the button labeled “key” – hit it then choose any keyboard key, i used SPACE for this tutorial
Let’s simulate it or let me say – run it on game engine, yes i said that this blender3d has a builtin game engine – awesome right 🙂 hit START GAME and voila – nothing happens 🙁
try hitting the SPACE key.. and if you followed the instructions the cube will rotate, everytime you hit SPACE on your keyboard.
Next, is.. play around with different value of actuators then try using other sensors’s options.. try adding other MESH objects like sphere, tube, etc..
NO PHOTOS – See this link
I will post other tutorials, shading the interactive interface, adding textures & materials, gravity, physics etc..
I been doing 3d interactive for almost 7 years now and yes, its been really hard to create one. You have to do 3d modeling, rigging, animation, export to compliant format properly, then the hardest thing of all – the coding to make it interactive or a game, then compile for web or offline based application.
In just 1-2 weeks i have deployed a simple multi-player 3d game. Yes, its not yet done, but the functionality is almost done. Building a network application really takes heck of time and efforts but with unity3d i can say that “i finally found the one” hehe. Back then it takes months for the same thing/output.
Well, please try my unfinished but working multiplayer 3d game created using unity3d.
Instruction, download and play – see “network.exe” run it – click start server, copy the zipped file to another computer with the same network, then type-in the IP address (replace the 192.168.10.1 with the server’s IP address) – then voila – you will see each other’s player (a box that will move & shoot using WASD & Space keys). By the way there will be lots of gray cube (enemies with programmed Artificial Intelligence & rigidbody/physics) that will chase your player – enemies can be shoot but wont die for now hehehe
Hello folks! You may now download the Preview of the First City Based 3d Game here in the Philippines! the Science City of Muñoz 3D Game…
Take note that this is a work in progress only, there are lots of work to be done to complete this project. Controls navigation is “W-A-S-D”…
Please DOWNLOAD & PREVIEW (20MB file, so it will take sometime) to show your support and appreciation!!!
The project needs support and publicity. Also our student-trainees welcome sponsors to speed the completion of this project!
