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?

I think you should make a santa on a slegh and an easter bunny ridding in the basket of a bike.
By rynorst98 on Apr. 24th, 2011 11:30AM

By Wout92 on Apr. 24th, 2011 3:05PM

By icelite31 on Apr. 24th, 2011 7:35PM
fire would be epic !!!!!!!!!!!!!! BURN!!!!!!!!
By Broken 24 on Apr. 24th, 2011 11:23PM
Good job in the glass. I'm liking it a lot. Fire would be sweet. People have been wanting a character for a while but if you make the fire that will make them entertained for a while. Do whatever you think will be most productive and I'm looking forward to the future of Happy Wheels. Thanks for your dedication and keep up the good work. :)
By tristan1333 on Apr. 25th, 2011 04:47AM

By qatarkid on Apr. 25th, 2011 04:55AM
how about a guy who runs instead of riding a veichle
By mighty beanz on Apr. 25th, 2011 05:53AM
Jim what are you going to make for a new character? i think an astronaut with a rocket powered scooter would be nice. and also the astronauts suit is shiny and when he cracks his head open the helmet comes off with the head in it.
