glass and like whatever
By someone on Apr. 8th, 2011 07:12AM
So yeah, if you didn't already see, I added some breakable glass into the level editor last week. I updated it with some changes just now though. Flailing bodies were having trouble smashing through anything other than very thin glass, so you can now set the strength of the glass. If you want to avoid the player getting stabbed, you can shut that off. Smaller sized glass will now also break into interactive pieces. Shards will only kill you if they are over a certain mass.
That is all I have to say about glass.
I will most likely make a character now, but I'd really like to try implementing fire. I think it could look way fancy. That will probably come afterwards.
This week I've been preparing to move into my new office/studio space away from my goddamn bedroom. I get to move in tomorrow, and I'll be building some computers and setting up some desks. I am way happy about this. Working from home forces me to be in a non productive limbo, where I cannot differentiate between work and recreational time. This way I will have a place I go to specifically for work, on a real schedule... and I'm sure it will lead to me being more productive. Then I can go home and do pointless things without feeling guilty.
I'll also be hiring my friend Jason to help with the game. He's another flash programmer, who also happens to be pretty decent at replicating the Happy Wheels art style.
Once we're settled maybe I can even get an intern. Anyone in the NYC/Brooklyn area (older than 20 please) looking for an internship? Someone with an art or programming background would be great. I'd pay for lunch and travel. If you're in school you could possibly get credits. You would be cultivated into a true champion and could possibly learn something from two strange 30 year olds?

het i would like fire in this game... and if you make a new caracter, make him in a car that could blow up easy
By egbballbeast89 on Apr. 9th, 2011 12:32PM
yeah lol i tried to make one^ but still i think if people made level packs it would be easier to understand the story
By vander08 on Apr. 9th, 2011 1:55PM
Okay first off, I just want to say THANK YOU to Jim for making this sweet game of GODLIKE AWESOMENESS for everyone. Secondly I think that fire would be such a better feature to the game than a new character, because with a new character you can't make that many new and original levels with a new character. I play Happy Wheels a lot and all I have seen in the past month by users was copies and variations on someone's idea and most of them are ALL THE SAME. But with fire, you can make all brand new levels and come up with brilliant and original ideas, like a flamethrower, or a volcano level. I'm not saying to not make anymore new characters, I would love to see some new ones, but I think fire should come first.
Wow I just realized how long this is lol......Mmmmm Bacon

Well, I'm looking for an internship, but more of a bookkeeping internship...and to think I'd work for peanuts*.
*Okay, I lied...cashews...I don't like peanuts.
By ice283 on Apr. 9th, 2011 2:19PM
great idea for fire and i was thinking about clown on tricycle or if u can figure out how to get easy good balance a clown on a unicyle
By preguy on Apr. 9th, 2011 2:39PM
I have an idea for a character.
How 'bout a jet pack and control=down and shift=up? Ok thanks!
By b broder on Apr. 9th, 2011 2:49PM
nice idea of the glass but i think a new character is a better idea
By lennonman on Apr. 9th, 2011 3:06PM
By gman200107 on Apr. 9th, 2011 3:22PM
what kind of character is it?:o
By faustas00 on Apr. 9th, 2011 3:27PM
i have some idieas to happy wheels what about: alredy fineshd car, fire, some new figures like a skateboard shaped ramp, watercanon, firecanon, and ya somthing like that cuz happy wheels will be much populer then.
purhaps you like my levels try them....
By Happywheelscontest on Apr. 9th, 2011 3:38PM
ooooh, yea! It's funny when they're stabbed by glass! They just randomly scream!!lol
By LookMyFace on Apr. 9th, 2011 3:48PM
YES give a little bit FIRE dude you ROCK
By render175 on Apr. 9th, 2011 4:17PM
maybe i should suggest hiring a few interns so they get extra credit for highschool or collage then have half work on fire and other half on charector so we be more happy
p.s. best they should be nerds
By Emerus on Apr. 9th, 2011 4:26PM
can u please make so the characters puke, cuz that would be just awesome
By RyanAbelson1 on Apr. 9th, 2011 4:30PM
Jim, I really think it would make a lot of people happy if you made a black guy. I really think this would be a good idea because you would get more people playing this game. I mean if you look at your characters now, they are all white. It would do the site some good if you made a black guy!!

It'd be cool to intern for Total Jerk face unfortunately I'm in Toronto
By thematrix578 on Apr. 9th, 2011 6:46PM
Also, with the glass, you should have a blood measure so if many peices of glass hit you in many places, you die when a certian amount of blood releases and keeps happening, you die. Also, with the fire you should also try to make water phisicz\s so you can put the fire out. Also, the longer the fire is burning the brouner of more burnt your clothes become, and after a certian point you die, sadly.
By OUTSIDER5 on Apr. 9th, 2011 7:36PM
i think u should add a throwing knife or a mounted machine gun that shoot any thing u put in it
By Womperstomper on Apr. 9th, 2011 7:36PM
good look in the new space
By OUTSIDER5 on Apr. 9th, 2011 7:37PM

By gil97djcool on Apr. 9th, 2011 9:47PM

Justin Bieber arrives home late after a guyâs night out feeling no pain. Ashley Tisdale attacks him with a broom. With a concerned look on his face Bubba says to the little woman, âAre you still cleaning, or are you flying somewhere?â I think Hes getting the hell out of Our lives
By Juicy Fruit Cake on Apr. 9th, 2011 10:43PM
Oh and good luck making Fire, maybe if your in fire you'd catch on fire.
By bigC on Apr. 9th, 2011 10:56PM

By alex1998 on Apr. 10th, 2011 06:07AM

By Metzman24 on Apr. 10th, 2011 06:48AM
Guys,give Jim a break, he works so hard and can't do everything overnight....so good luck with the ideas and moving in mate, this game is legendary
By the gamester on Apr. 10th, 2011 09:26AM
Jim you have an awesome website all you need is a few more characters and fire that would make happy wheels way more awesome even though it is already awesome
By kingmgee on Apr. 10th, 2011 12:04PM
I know your busy and everything, but earlier on level editor I did something seriously stupid an I lost most of my most awesomest level ever! can you please make a "undo button" for level editor. a new charecter and fire in happy wheels would be EPIC!!! I LOVE HAPPY WHEELS!!!!!!!
By giraffyinc on Apr. 10th, 2011 1:19PM
i'm 12, but if you need a hand with any programming email me on firstname.lastname@example.org :D
By Whoas on Apr. 10th, 2011 1:56PM
You should have a charecter that are like, two kids in a wagon. Eh. eh?
By seanshoots on Apr. 10th, 2011 2:30PM
Guys, chances are if you're <18 you probably can't code anything useful.
Well, let me rephrase that. If you're <15 you definitely can't code anything useful.
Also, he already knows that [u]some[/u] people want a skateboard kid. I, for one, don't. I'd rather have him create something like the coding that was in InteractiveBuddy (If any of you remember that), so we could make our own complex and unique levels, and even change the characters to our liking.
...or he could just listen to the 7yo's that want a skateboard kid.
By FyourRELIGION on Apr. 10th, 2011 2:33PM
Acid/magma maybe? That'd be tight, too.
By distruction999 on Apr. 10th, 2011 3:13PM
hey my uncle is 34 i think and hes always on the computer. he and all of us all live in tennessee tho. he runs a recorsing studio and if you can maybe think about hiring him thru the internet and he could send you the files and stuff. would you be able to do that?
By totalnetworker on Apr. 10th, 2011 4:47PM
awsomme idea, butt if you're going to make a fire, you should also have enough water, keep on;)
By griffinB on Apr. 10th, 2011 5:32PM
[b]WE WANT FIRE!!![/b]
Jim please, for the children...
MAKE FIRE GOD DAMNIT!

Good job with the glass Jim!
By HoraceTheClown on Apr. 10th, 2011 8:44PM
honestly, a skateboarder is the least creative thing he could do... there are so many cooler character ideas... idiots.
