    Lex, You're right. The world really is for the taking. There is so much more that we can do, that we don't. I won't forget your words... whatever they were.
    Just kidding.


    As well, in the first video, the cardboard man says somethnig about a gun with gravity. How would you be able to change that in unrealscript? I'm thinking...

    *Get the location of where the gun is pointing in the game world.
    *Set the gravity to invert direction, or invert the vectors relating to that direction altogether. (Or better, perpendicular to a surface!)
    *release a button to stop the beam.


    I can see all sorts of ragdoll physics in my head right now.

    Oh, and here's the link I promised.

    Argh, FPS arms the bane of FPS's. I hate script ing htem.
    Are you thinking of implementing these features then, lol..........If you succeed Let me know...........

      There's no way I'm putting a gravity rifle into my game. But, It is a fun idea in the video, And I want to see how it could work.

          What these videos primarily demonstrate though is that only shear dedication, blood sweat and tears will make you a successful indie developer...
          Epic Games,Rockstar,Valve,Ubisoft etc etc are only going to employ you if you're exceptionally skilled!
          Great ideas are ten a penny !
          Actually getting down to the nuts and bolts of it and making it happen are what's needed...

          As Hourences said " Game development isn't a career but a calling " and I strongly believe that!
          I totally agree, game development is no different than any other "hard work" and Hourences's saying sounds right to me as well,
          naturally it is much simpler when you work at a good game company,
          than it is to be an Indie Developer or even starting a new company etc,
          the most important fact in all this is that making games is all about selling a product,
          therefore game development is actually just a part of the big picture in a successful company!
          All I have done as 3D artist and game developer I did purely out of passion,
          unfortunately financially things still aren't working out for me as I would wish and need,
          so I am forced to do other jobs here and there to support myself , it was a struggle for me to get to this point,
          but it does give me a big personal satisfaction to do and finish things I have always dreamed about.
          However , all this made me think a lot, I learned and know so much, I really can do a lot,
          but I still have nothing , my social life was affected as well,
          working 12-16 hours\day for months just isn't right and will give you problems sooner or later,
          we live and we learn but years are passing by faster and faster... I'll never give up thou

            Ditto......Almost a carbon copy of my life...........

            I'm making some money but not the millions I hoped too lol........And I'll stick to it because I enjoy it............

            My motto is "Create a game, Kill bots, Blow everything up in your game, be the champ" and try to sell it one day Its great fun if nothing else!

                  Hi Lex,

                  I couldn't send you a message on YouTube because it said I had to be a contact or something. Can you contact me on the forums here please ?
                  I haven't messaged you on here because a lot of people don't reply to messages on the forums and I wanted to make sure you read this.

                  Thanks AMC.

                  PS. Yes my name was after Scatman Crothers by the way, . If you watch some of his music videos on YouTube he was the original hip hop man in the 1950's, long before hip hop was even born

                      Appman,

                      I have messaged you now on YouTube....

                      If you look on my channel there other ways to contact me if you're having trouble on YouTube!




                      Bloodbrothers,

                      what exactly did you want?
                      If people ask me questions that have already been covered in my tutorials, I ignore them...
                      If you're the guy that has asked about the last modular pawn video, I answered that by saying that video was damaged and I had to re-record a new one! When I have time...
                      I don't have the time currently...

                            Woah. Didn't realize there was a conversation going on. sorry to bumb in between you, BloodBrother and Lexluthor.

                            On a slightly more serious note, I got a gravity gun to work within UDK. it's really, really buggy, and has weird effect in the terrain. However, it works!" I'm thinkling of not letting it move once the player activates the gun...
