3d Construction Kit2 (and other game maker software) stuff

Over the last month or so I keep stumbling upon 3d Construction Kit2 while doing random browsing, so Ive decidde to have a bit of a play with it. I was never really a fan of 3dck1 back in the day (never used no.2), but I only ever tried it on a stock 7.14mhz 68000.

Has anyone here spent much time with 3dck2? Im always interested to see what people come up with while using limited tools/game maker packages/etc. More often than not this sort of stuff is pretty bad, but sometimes the effort people put in reveals a certain charm.

Id also be interesting in seeing or hearing about games/etc. people have made using other such tools/packages/game makers/whatever, but given the 3dck's insistance on stalking me of late, Im predominantly intrested in 3dck2 stuff for now.

Quite a comprehensive website if you haven't already come across it.

@DrBong

Cool, thanks for that. I'd seen the site before, but couldnt remember what it was called despite its pretty obvious name

@Synchro

Hehe, that's cool I'll check your games out then

I saw a review in a game mag back in teh day and was quite interested in it, but I never owned the program. The idea of having a VHS tape as a tutorial packaged with the game must seem extremely archaic today Even though the HeroQuest-like board game "Dragon Strike" had one, too.

That being said, whenever I play a game that has an editor I tinker around with it for a while even though nothing really every comes out of it. I spent countless days making maps for Half-Life when it came out in 1998, and long before that I played around with the Empire Deluxe editor. It's always fun creating your own stuff.

the 3D Construction Kit has a certain charm on it's own, even without textures or lighting. The mono-color polygons can be very stylish when used carefully, as in this screenshot from one of the games from the website posted above. The red sky and blue buildings... good stuff!



Just a manner of choosing the right color palette

There was a key and a lock on that green deck of the titanic but they are not related....Get behind the door WITHOUT the lock and give it a nudge ...
