Guys please advise, Ok I am familiar with 2D and Direct X8. But I need to make a 3D application which runs horses in a race based on the data given. Think of it as a simulator if u will. Now this needs to be 3D, how am I going to look into this? Use 3D max to make my horse animations? Use Direct X 9? I really dont know how to do this in 3D!? Any direct /books ideas are more than welcome. Thanks guys

I can send you a horse model in 3ds or max where you can modify the body parts to animate it. Then just do your animations and export it as an x file or something.

It''s on it''s way.
It''s around 1 meg because there''s the .3ds, .max, and the texture.

Have a good one,

I don''t know whether to support the efforts here, or cry. In a way, this thread plays off of the "Elves are part of the problem" thread nicely, and is sort of an example of bringing to the forefront the qualifications and motivations (and general thinking) of game developers.

I''d really like to see this thread develop into something more substantive.

Someone else created a thread entitled ''Why are there no "western" games?'' I think we have part of our answer right here.

By the way, I created a thread a while back entitled "The game mechanics of riding a horse".

So tell me, are the horses in the races quarters or thoroughbreds? Also, are you doing the full gamut of colorations: greys, chestnuts, bays, blacks, sorrels, and so on? How are the markings? Blazes, stars, snips, socks, etc.

Sometimes during races, one of the horses will attempt to nip another along side him. Really great stuff to watch.

What do you think of Stormcat''s stud fee?

Have you read William Nack''s story entitled "Pure Heart"?
