    My family used to own a logging company. But then the economy stopped. I worked with them a few times when I was in high school, but I wasn't strong enough to carry the chainsaw all day so that didn't work out very long.

    my brothers both worked in the logging woods, and my dad is a foreman millwright at a saw mill, and i used to work atthe same sawmill before i got in the game industry so i find this amusing and neat

    Can we tip the log truck over and cause our load of logs to spill over a highway, disrupting traffic for untold hours? Cuz I always wanted to do that in real life, but I think it would be illegal.

    To actual contribute to the conversation though, is the game mostly focused strictly as a driving game or do you get to cut down trees and stuff? Or like take out a chainsaw and go on a massacre (in the Northeast, to avoid copyright infringements of course)? I think that might be kinda cool for a while, although it might get really not that much fun too. Unless you can tip them onto house and cars, because no matter how weird the gameplay is, it's always fun to break stuff.

    Only haul logs.Sry.And yes ill make sure that stuff is in there.And u wont be staying in hotels its about log hauling they drive day cabs cause they dont haul logs for miles.Just run to the mountain crab logs drive for like 2 hours to the mill and drive back to mountain for more logs.

    Ax Men is pretty awesome. My favorite is Ice Road Truc... oh my god you have found a way to combine the two possibly greatest shows ever made into one video game! You, sir, are a god! Like Vivec or something!

    EDIT: it would have been a lot better if I was actually saying it to you because the sheer excitement overtook my voice and I was talking with an extreme level of hand gesturing.

    Right on.

    I got the same kind of thing when I was using the C4 engine for Empire City. I kind of laid out the idea of it, and asked a couple of questions, pretty much the same ones as I did here, asking about parallax and bump maps and a couple of questions about scripting to get me started, and a couple of people helped me and gave me some links to tutorials, but most of them were like "You have no programing experience, you're stupid, you need to learn C++ before you even think about that, you need a team of a lot of people to do everything and it'll take you years to develop and years to learn C++ and you're a noob and I hate you," and it was like WTF guys, I'm well aware it's going to take a long time, not like I said it's going to be released in a week and I'm making an MMO to compete with WoW or something. I mean, I get that I'm still learning, but don't you think that just MAYBE if you gave me a hand with what I was asking (which was mostly for some input on the concept and a tutorial for bump maps) everything would go a lot faster for me?

    Oh, the machinery like the backhoe and bulldozer, are those going to be static or NPC kinds of things or does the player end up operating them?

    these days its hard to be innovative when thinking of a new kind of game (eg. earth is attacked by merciless aliens). and even then, half the time new ideas are crap. But you've thought up something thats new and looks like it could make a good game, which is pretty hard to do.

    Unfortunately i'm a complete noob so I can't really help that much but I hope your project goes well

    Yeah, now everything is focused on gameplay more than the story. Despite that though, even the same repetitive idea can make a really good plot. This is, though, totally different. This is... epic, even if when it comes out and it is absolutely no fun whatsoever, you will still hold claim to being the one who combined Ax Men and Ice Road Truckers into one epic attempt at the very least.

    my two cents.. throw in a tree cutting chainsaw and make it about chopping trees, loading them on the truck and transporting them to the mill.. then you got yourself a multiplayer competition with action (maybe you can attack other players and disable them for few moments.. ) of cutting trees and truck-road-racing-kind-a-thingy..
    i know your going for more of a laid back just-load-the-trees-and-get-them-somewhere-kind-a-thingie.. but that way would be more fun and would keep people playing..
    like i said, just my opinion..

    Yea im thinking about adding that stuff.It will be advanced coding but ill figure it out...Maybe.But thanks for the support guys keep the questions and all that coming.I appreciate it im getting downed big time on another forum truckpol cause theres a bunch of emajor people that think they can dis me for asking for help.I mean i ask for help and there like why do you always ask for help.I mean for right now im a 1 man show.LOL.So im looking for help if you wanna help.I promise this game is epic and you can tell from the comments that have over taken 3 pages in just 1 day.

    It's very simple. Watch:

    I hate you. You can't do this.

    Now you try! It gets you far in life, look at the ads Obama ran to get elected!

    well basically no one post about your empire thing was mainly because the quality looked like it was done on sketchup or something not EYE POPPING or half way cool at all to me.

    No one posts on your game because you posted a wall of text that no one cares to read. Real classy coming in to someone else' thread to complain about how you aren't getting any attention. You should change you user name to "SpoiledWalnut".

    Xtreme Games, your idea sounds awesome. Very original, but if you are going to call it extreme logging I think you need to make it completely extreme. Like, you cut down the trees with a RPC (rocket propelled chainsaw), or you have a shark that bites them down or something.

    Wow, looks like you got yourself a really great idea running for ya.
    My Dad drives truck in the oil field, and I have always been looking for a great game that gives that same feeling of being behind the wheel of a good ol' rig.
    Ill be keeping an eye on this one for sure.

    Also, I love you models, they are very well done.
    though your cutter there could use another pin in the middle joint, other then that, lookin good.
