Classic RPG: Zeron is hiring for car system

Zeron is hiring!

Job market

Currently we are hiring: NAT/scripter and GFX for the car-system.

Work to do: NATS: Script a simple driveability-system for acceleration, braking and steering. The tires rotating speed is synchronous to the speed of the car. Another thing is that the car is decelerated while driving on gras or sand (tile detection), in addition it shouldn't be possible to drive on water
That includes a collision detection for the car. It shouldn't be too strictly so the player crashes at every edge, but it shouldn't got the scale of the acutal player ().

Also (but i dont know if its possible) a scripted sound system would be very neat so if the engine speed is very high, the sound of the motor is loud and bright.

Additional sprites change the appearance of the car through a scripted system e.g. if you hit a tree with the car boot at low speed nothing will happend, but if you crash-in with 50 mph you'll have a pick-up.

GFX: Thats quite a challenge: The car must be done in some kind of a pixel art-style, one sprite (including tires, interior, extras etc.) for each of the 8 angels. Please stick to the following allocation:



The transparency-value of the car shadow is 77/255 (30,2%). The "top of the tire" is necessary because of the depth effect.

So dry your noodles and send us a pm or an e-mail! Our addies are at the bottom of the post.
Please be patient if we don't reply immediately. We plan to start the project next week

Thats it - Here is a sneak preview of the upcoming car system for Zeron. Done in real graal-perspective with some nice physics-effcts (could be done by scripted areas or tile-detection). Realized by ganis, scripted light- and (of course) some particle-effects.

Thanks a lot folks

Lets see if we can start this project next Monday.

car radios... uhm? Simply a question of having hosters and stations or not.
And of course having scripters who are able to implement that

@ Elk: Jo, gibt es hier als Anhang.
Ist erstmal die vorläufige Aufteilung in Spiralenform. Lichter und Schadensmodell sind separat ausgelagert.

@ Shards-Of-Fate: Do I have this right? You are interested in scripting it?

Guessed right, its Edge Of Seventeen by Stevie Nicks

@ Shards-Of-Fate: Just as well, you can use the template of the Cadillac.
The car should have (if it is a normal car and not a bus or tank or whatever) similar dimensions.

It should be noted that the car should have more an unusual style (thats why the template is just a Cadillac that will never find the way into the game: Its just for imagination of how big the vehicle should be), having elements of the early 20th century merged with outlines of modern cars.
Zerons world is set in a parallel universe. That is why familiar things like buildings, war material, cars etc. look unusual, dated or completely different and forms of society we are used to do not exist and were replaced by totaly odd ones. Apart from that are many things anon we know and use every day.
That means in a nutshell: The cars should not just be variations of Tin Lizzies, but they could have parts and elements of it.

The four diagonal car sprites don't seem to be drawn at a 45° angle, which makes it look somewhat awkward.
