Tutorials, Tips and Tricks

Specific Tutorials

These focus on a specific subject

  • BTB Icons - Rather than trying to name or describe the icon, just post a picture of it.
  • mipmapping-tutorial - What are Mipmaps, why are they needed and how they behave. Also includes correct road panel length and basic shaders introduction.
  • Simple Collisions - Maintain a decent frame rate by using very simple collision objects
  • Updating an XPack - Inserting an updated XPack into a project that already uses an older version

Blender

Please note a lot of Blender tutorials are for older versions. In later versions some of the things/keyboard shortcuts are different.

  • Terrain mapping with Blender - make a texture "flow" along terrain rather than tiling. This can also be used to properly map a track texture if it doesn't already flow.
