Top down racer

Post by Transparent » Wed Feb 11, 2004 4:41 am

I currently writing a top down, 3d cellshaded racer in C#.

The game will be based around Knight Rider, but will be relatively simple.

i.e. you will race Kitt against various other competitors.

I am looking for 3d models that I can use for KITT etc..

Does anybody know of any that have already been built?

Ken's - that's the only clue. I think it's Japanease, because some of the writing seems to be. '3D Model' in Knight Replicas' photo bank.

Good luck! 8)

Because the model doesn't need to be that detailed I'm going to build my own (for time being).

The game will essentially be a top down racer. It will look quite similar to GTA (the first version).

I plan on giving the player the following abilities:

turbo boost
ski mode
floating on water mode thing

Thats about it.

I plan to release an alpha in march

I am interested in what people think I should include in the game.

Suggestions?

Please remember that the scope of the game cannot be huge. Theres only me working on it!

Early screenshots will not contain KITT, as I have yet to build the model, however you will be able to get a general idea...

Hopefully you'll be able to add your own models to the game, so if any of you want to model your own cars you can (hopefully)!
