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?

whats up with everyone and skateboards...jim, my opinion is focus on the fire. fire would make the game more...interesting. cant wait to make a fire pit for the segway to jump over.

thts cool and all but i dont now whos with me but you need to make more fuckin players instead of the dam glass do u hav any fucking common sence youll lose fans. u now how many fucking people want new characters dam i know how hard it is but people will stop playing make a forwheeler dude u hav like 20 open boxes for characters dam
By edwardlacey on Apr. 14th, 2011 5:29PM
i think the next character should have a gun maybe some kind of army guy
By nilac on Apr. 14th, 2011 8:20PM
new character? nuns on a tandem bicycle. fire? would go great with my current project. also, consider this my cover letter. and my two stages my resume.
By Laneio on Apr. 15th, 2011 07:23AM
Y0 Jim, I think that a new character would be better than fire, mainly because of...
1) How many people actually use level creator
2)We've had these characters for a while now
3) You already did glass
MAKE A SUPERHERO WITH LIMITED FLIGHT AND HE RUNS AND JUMPS AND STUFF!!!!
By Booyahh on Apr. 15th, 2011 10:01AM
How about a little boy in a little electric car that would make people happy.
By axersuper on Apr. 15th, 2011 11:01AM
just a thought you could make a flamethrower(sort a thing) with a fixed stand and put a timer on for how long the flame is on or off. Just a thought :)
By erikpoop on Apr. 15th, 2011 3:59PM

By XxRobsterthelobsterx on Apr. 16th, 2011 05:04AM
yh jim fire would be awesome :D and for the charater mabye try a zombie or army guy in a jeep that would be cool
By joshmanutd on Apr. 16th, 2011 05:30AM
Jim, When People Get Burnt By The Fire They Could Turn Into A Pile Of Ashes And When You've Done With The New Character And The Fire Maybe You Could Make Water And Acid. In Water If They're Under It Long Enough There Could Be A Meter Showing How Much Air They've Got Left And Acid, It Could Peel Their Skin So They're Just A Bony Skeleton It 'll Be Great
By preguy on Apr. 16th, 2011 07:04AM
I think that would be cool but wouldn't it cause a bit of lag?... any way jim is doing what he wants,It is his game and he decides the best!
By elnino1999 on Apr. 16th, 2011 07:09AM

Hey Jim I love your game Happy Wheels and in my opinion I think you should make a guy on a skateboard or a little kid on a tricycle or something cool but I hope you like my choices. :D
By k0mbine on Apr. 18th, 2011 10:02AM
Jim is OUR god. He grants us our heavenly wishes. And please repent your sins like asking for a walking person when clearly this game is called happy WHEELS.

New character can't wait can we have someone on a scooter
By Fleeper on Apr. 18th, 2011 7:04PM
I was thinking...Maybe an old fashioned man, EX: (Abraham Lincoln...ect ect)
On one of those big old fashioned bikes...the really high ones?? Imma really good in programming, but since I live NOWHERES NEAR YOU, or over the age limit...I'll just stay here and watch ya...Good luck with the move into the new apartment and workplace...and I'll just say...: Good luck with the fire, new character and such other elements...Check out my thread... http://www.totaljerkface.com/post.php?id=42646
It holds all the info that I think would be good for elements in the game. I'm in no rush to see them though...You do what you and your thirty year old sidekick do want to do...Mehhh...I'll see you around.
By Runearrow on Apr. 18th, 2011 9:27PM
Although i like the fire idea i think instead of fire or a new character you could somehow make it to where we can use our mouse and grab our guy and sling him around :P i think that would be pretty cool. Thanks =)
By quicks1 on Apr. 18th, 2011 11:17PM
Runearrow... just get out of here and play interactive buddy. Never post on forums again.
By darkspadzz on Apr. 18th, 2011 11:45PM
