View Full Version : [AS3] Racing Track / 3D Racing Game Help

Hello guys!

I'm new to the forum, so I hope I'm posting an appropriate thread in the appropriate section.

Basically I want to develop a game like this: freeaddictinggames[dot]com/game/motorcycle-racer

I'm already familiar to the 3D concepts in Flash (z-axis, vanishing point etc.) and I've already made a simple 3D racing game, thanks to the wonderful tutorial at kirupa[dot]com/developer/actionscript/shape_camera.htm

So, I decompiled Motorcycle Racer in order to get a better idea of how it works. It turned out that the racing tracks are 2D images. Some kind of 3D Rotation is applied to them, but I can quite get it.

I tried experimenting with all kinds of z-axis and vanishing point configurations and I didn't even get close to aligning the racing track the way it is aligned in Motorcycle Racer.

I'm wondering if any of you guys can give me some directions, like maybe useful tutorials that can help me out.

I'll appreciate it!
