Default Help me with my game - 2D (3D models topdown)

Hey
I've been reading these forums for a long time now but have only just recently had access to Maya and have found it to be incredibly hard to learn and stuff, this is a great community though


Anyway, I'm making an arcade-style space shooter game and thought I'd post and see if anyone would be interested in helping with some modeling/texturing of some stuff

The game is being coded soley by me, and will be completed within a few months.
Currently it's in quite early stages but I can tell you that it's a 2D space shooter game in which two players fight "head to head" using a variety of weapons to destroy each others spaceships.

As I said, it's only 2D, but I would like to use 3D models which have been created and rendered with a "top down" perspective in mind, so that they're nice to look at

I can provide more details about the sorts of models I'm after, but I thought I'd just see if anyone's interested first, because there are so many really tallented people here and I think it could be fun to see art meet application - even if it is a bit of a crummy game :p

When it's finished it will be available for download free of charge, and any artwork used will be acknowledged in all documentation and credits within the game.


Thnx

Sounds great

I was going to make the background just plain black but just recently decided to use (a) starfield/space background/s, as I have just added translucency

In order to be used, any final renders of objects will need an alpha map for translucency - the alpha map can be saved as a seperate bitmap - like a greyscale image.
White indicates areas of the bitmap to be drawn with no translucency, black indicates that the area will not be visible (completely transperent), and all shades of grey inbetween indicate varying ranges of translucency.

I can probably make these alpha maps if you dont want to, but you can get some great effects (smoke, plasma blobs etc. :p ) by having a good alpha map with the image.


Anyway, if anyone else is interested please post

Looks good twisteddragon

I could use one or two scenes like that for the background or for other stuff (credits page, or other pages in the game).

LOL

Ultragames - I cant see your image
EDIT: it's working now, wow it looks great

I drew this ages ago when I was, really, really, bored.


As you can see, things got a bit silly :p
but you get the general idea - just significantly less crap
