Go Kart Demo NGUI Update

1-18-13_WebDemo

Web playable update: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/16956434/Kart_Race_Demo/1-18-13_Webplayer/WebPlayer.html

Converted all in-game HUD elements to NGUI. Now they’re rocking 2 draw calls of the entire UI (1 is for the font and other for UI elements.) I am aware of the position indicator doing it’s bugginess. What is occurring, is that when the player and AI are equal in Laps Completed, Waypoints Passed and are relying on Distance to Next Waypoint to calculate who’s in front..well that value is jumping back to 0 at each way point being passed (resets value). So I think because the data is relying on the rapidly changing value to determine race position in these circumstances, it’s glitching a bit. Once you determine a lead by passing more waypoints in general or more laps, the position indicator is fine. It’s a bug and I’ll fix it.

I’ve also added in driver camera functionality if you click the camera icon in the top of the game window. Helps with the sense of speed a bit, but I’ll do more with the far camera’s sense of speed when I get to that. For now I’m working on getting the second functional AI vehicle in…I intend to have a race between (3) Karts.

Checkpoint and Lap System for Unity

This is a small project that teaches you how to implement a simple checkpoint system and lap system. The checkpoint system is used to prevent cheating (i.e. backing up and driving over the finish line to increase lap count.) The player vehicle must pass through a series of checkpoints (which you determine), before the lap counter will increment.
