Oh, i see! U used the "real-life-earth-3d-engine".
It's a damn good engine with high framerates, uncounted polygones und highly detailed textures. A realy good 3d-engine! I'm thinking about using it in my next 3d-action shooter! :)
Werner: The most dangerous part (in my opinion) is when actually before you start juggling and you're just holding the torches in your hands. There's a natural tendency to hold the torches down, and fire has this nasty tendency to always go in the up direction. I've gotten some minor burns on my hands from doing that, but other than singeing some of the hair on my arms I haven't really burned anything while juggling. Generally when you're juggling things that you don't want to catch the wrong way (torches, knives, etc.) you learn to just get your hands out of the way and let the bad throws fall on the ground.
The tech file on juggling is Jaap Suter's.
Oh, and for those with the chainsaw fixation, it's not me, but it is a real chainsaw.
I wouldn't recommend it, the Real-Life-3d-Engine (or RL3D) has a vicious following. Although 2D/3D texture artists and level designers (whome they call "architects" for some reason) are praised for their work, they seem to look down on any sort of violent gameplay.
That hasn't stopped my creative team of mod makers from working on an alternate solution though. We calling our new product "PaintBall 2000 Pro", and hope to release it sometime this summer.
I'll have to say that I'm not very impressed with the RL3D API though.. It leaves quite a bit to be desired.
The next t-shirt batch, possibly along with some other simple merchandise, should be for sale at some point. I didn't expect so many people to want flipcode stuff. The current supply is almost finished, and they're only available through this offer or the coding contest.
I'm still trying to find the code! It has some really good dynamic shadows and colored lighting, but look at the background on that screenshot! That's a 16 color background! And the tree looks flat, it's obviously just a billboard.
I just have one question (aside from how you got the shirt :)
When did you start juggling, how, with what, and what did you move on to? I have a hard time imagining you starting out with torches.... ("oops, sorry mom!"), hehehehe.
Very nice indeed... by the way, I like the fact that the IOTD doesn't always have to be software-generated. BRING SOME REALITY HERE! :)
