How To: Create a 3D video game using Alice online software

Create a 3D video game using Alice online software

Shaun will teach us how to create a 3D video game compatible with MAC or PC with no prior programming knowledge. First download Alice, a 3D World program that can be turned into a video game. Open Alice, click on "add objects", click on "more controls" and select your choice of aspect ratio such wide screen. Now you can import your own 3D models that Shaun will show you at the end of the tutorial or choose from a wide selection that comes with Alice. In addition, if you click on "home," "web gallery" you'll find additional models. For this tutorial, let's pick a blimp, add instance to World. The purple icons are point of view. Click play to test it and click done. Shaun will control the blimp with arrow keys. Start by clicking "create new event," scroll down to "let the arrow keys move subject." Choose subject as "blimp." The arrow keys will now move the blimp. So, next the camera needs to follow the blimp in order not to move it off screen. Underneath "world" on the left, click "camera," then "camera constrain to point at" located at the bottom of the list. Drag that into the yellow space and select blimp and then click "more," "duration" and "other." So, type in 9999999 one million of them to last the entire game. Click "okay" and then "play." Now, click on "add objects" and from local gallery, let's build a mini city. The blimp moves around the city when you click "play." To move blimp up and down, click "done," then click "new event," choose "when key is typed" and pick the "up arrow." Next, "create new method" which we will call "blimp up" and then click okay. Next, click "blimp" "move up" and for example let's choose "five meters." So now "when arrow key is type," choose "do blimp us." Let's change arrow key to number one instead. Now when typing number 1, the blimp goes up. So, for moving down, do same steps and pick number 2. There are so many possibilities with this. Hopefully you found this tutorial helpful.
