How to get started creating props?


#1

Hey everyone,

I’m pretty new to game development, actually really new.

I really want to make realistic weapons. Particularly firearms. They fit with the world I’ve been writing about and they don’t seem overly complicated.

All that being said, where do I begin? I do really know much about making 3D models. I know a little programming from past courses (HTML, VB, a little C++), but I haven’t messed around much with JavaScript.

Any good guides for making firearms that would work in HiFi? Videos? Tutorials?

Thanks!

Hi!

I know a little programming from past courses (HTML, VB, a little C++), but I haven’t messed around much with JavaScript.

I have a primer here in the forums that hopefully gives you some understanding.


Unfortunately there is no tutorial on how to do specific things, so instead,

I suggest checking out some of the scripts, such as the Pingpong Popgun Rez and Entity Script or the Flaregun Object, which points to a Flaregun script, and experimenting from there to more advanced stuff such as the bow: Javascript is quite a flexible, but chaotic language due to its flexibility and multifaceted approach.

I do really know much about making 3D models

What 3D suite do you use? Could point to some if you are using Blender.

I hope that helps.

Oh, this is perfect! Appreciate it!

I meant to say I don’t really know much about making models. I can use either Blender or Maya, whichever is better.
