    What's a good first language to learn?

    Quote:Original post by Zahlman Try here for Python. I think that A Byte of Python is a better book to start with (and it's also free).

    blender texturing ( as a level editor )

    This may be helpfull: http://otothecleaner.free.fr/tutorials/LevelDesign1/level2/level1-2.html http://www.voraxgames.com/community/blogs/dut/archive/2006/02/04/124.aspx And indeed, texturing a level is like texturing a model... Basically a level is a "collection" of models.

    Your recent art work....

    Nothing special here, this was done for a speed modelling challenge on game-artist.net. It took me about 40 minutes:

    A game that teaches you a new language

    Quote:Original post by Captain P I think that how much it should be in that other language at the end should be determined by playtesting with various people. Yep, thats what I think too :-) + learning curves like Captain P already suggested is also a good idea.

    A game that teaches you a new language

    I really like the idea, it gives more educational value to a game. After you played the game you can say "hmm, I had a good time playing that game and I learned japanese..." - and thats a good thing, not only for the game industry... But like algumacoisaqualquer said: I don't think its a very good idea to have the whole game in japanese at the end, that would be too hard... - Fenryl

    Need some drawing tutorials...

    Hi mmoWoWmkr, like smr said, its a good idea to take a look at the drawing workshop. But if you want a free drawing guide, then I can recommend you this: http://barthost.net/tjnr/angel/AndrewLoomis_funwithpencil.pdf (direct download) It's is a free book written by Andrew Loomis, it's aimed to beginners. It will teach you the most basic stuff to a little more advanced stuff. Also take a look at the Drawing Resources thread, maybe you find something useful... - Fenryal

    Direct Downloads

    Quote:Original post by Juggie - Where is the direct download to 2D GIMP? Can't find it on www.gimp.org cauz of the many links on the site. Maybe you should click on "Downloads"... [smile] A direct link for the Windows installer: http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/gimp-win/gimp-2.2.13-i586-setup-1.zip?use_mirror=ovh

    Where to begin?

    Gimp isn't that bad... Its the only good opensource photoshop alternative I know. It has all the options you need to create something nice.

    They have made a whole new physics engine for it, and they are planning to make an Ogre3D plugin

    New to it all..

    Quote:Original post by Splinter of Chaos Few pointers. 1) c++ is considered by some, not good for beginers. But I don't know it yet so don't take my word for it. 2) USE MULTIPLE TUTORIALS! ( http://www.programmingebooks.tk/ ) programmingebooks.tk doesn't seems to work, you can try techbooksforfree.com Good Luck!

    Good Reading for Game Artists

    Quote:Original post by destron hey guys... i really appreciate all the links and stuff you've given me but i was trying to focus this section on design, rather than "cut-and-paste" tutorials. i'm gonna post the gnomon workshop link up there and maybe some of the other ones, but i'm afraid i'm gonna leave out most of the tutorial links. Oh, sorry [oh] These articles give more information about the 'design' of level design (hope this is a little bit more helpfull then my last post [smile]) www.gamasutra.com/resource_guide/20010716/index.shtml www.gamasutra.com/features/20030603/licht_01.shtml www.gamedesign.be/Hourences/articles.htm EDIT: The website has changed. New site: http://help.hourences.com/ You can find the old tutorials on this site: http://phalanx.planetunreal.gamespy.com/tutorials.htm /EDIT www.gamedesign.net -Fenryl [Edited by - Fenryl on November 19, 2006 5:32:14 AM]
