Early Minigolf Developments


#21

I got started on 3DS Max recently too, so, this will be a neat experiment to do (and learn tid-bits of Unreal in-between as well). I personally can do most stuff related to hard-surfaces but I never seem to be able to get curved surfaces and organic stuff done right. :sweat_smile:


#22

did some art tests for garden, didn’t bake lighting but you get the idea.


#23

Looks gorgeous, Very excited for the finished product :smile:

Thanks to @Zak and @Foohy for finishing up the game base and @MacDGuy and @Foohy for making MINIGOLF, we’re getting in full swing (no pun intended) of Minigolf Development!

We’ll show more off on our stream tomorrow.


#27

Damn, it already looks so super similiar to GMTower Minigolf. Nice job!


#28

Hype! Super great to hear that you guys finished the game base, Seems like it was a lot of work!


#29

Better HOLE IN ONE


#30

im so excite

(edit: YOU HAPPY NOW)


#31

That new Hole in One is great!. I’ll be looking forward to seeing more from the stream. :smile:


#32

watch out, we’ve played minigolf so much we can basically hole in one any shot


PURE SKILL


#33

MLG skillz!


#34

Dat bounce though.


#35

It didn’t trigger out of bounds! Cheater!


#36

I swear I saw it curving towards the hole after bouncing off the rock.


#37

There really should be a hole like that in the finished game! An unexpected surprise sort of like the last hole on the ice-themed minigolf map from GMT.


#38

I believe it was showing off the hidden trajectory system, which will direct where the ball lands when you are fired out the cannons planned for Minigolf. Again, I believe the entire thing was on rails.


#39

Yep, everything there was a series of hidden cannons. The cool thing though is the ball never actually follows a fixed path, I calculate the exact velocity needed for the ball to hit the desired spot (so it’s 100% physics)


edit:
also fun fact that very first jump into the spinning target was also a cannon because I’m bad at videogames


#40

yep we all saw how bad you were, at least you aren’t as bad as mac
