Okay - a brief overview. I am reading / read 3D game programming all in one utilizing the Torgue Game Engine. Learned alot.
I like to work in Blitz3D while I am learning about scripting. Everything I do is self Taught with the books I buy, Trial and error and keeping what is good.
I have created several 3D Models, Mostly vehicles, Did some animations things are looking good.
What books are available to build upon what I am learning in Torgue? What I want to know next is how to attach weapons / change the weapons on my vehilces at run-time. Also looking for information on how to blow apart my models ( Explode them when destroyed )
I have Textured my models, ( Still improving on my art skills ) So I am also looking for graphics information on how to ad a decal to my Texture at rune-time without having to make new Textures (Skins) to cover all of the decal options I want.
I have seen this done in games like need for speed where the user can paint and decal a vehicle while they are playing. This is the kind of books I am looking for.
Can anyone point me in the right direction with titles ?
