Podcast 2: Vehicle Dynamics - Saturday, February 25th

Postby Golem » Sat Feb 25, 2017 8:02 pm

  • Intro
    • How have you been doing?
    • Have you played another racing game? How did cars control? (Up to 1 persons may say Wave Race 64.)
  • Vehicle Dynamics
    • Let's talk about the forces on a car. Longitudinal force affects how fast the car goes forward, lateral force affects the car moving side to side, and vertical force pushes the car up or down. These forces are relative to the car itself. From "A Rational Approach to Racing Game Track Design": http://www.gamasutra.com/db_area/images ... gure01.jpg
    • Longitudinal force
      • How do you gain speed?
      • How do you lose speed?
    • Lateral force
      • How can you turn?
      • What loosens your grip?
    • Vertical force
      • How do you gain air time?
      • How can you convert this into speed? (longitudinal)
      • How can you convert this into a turn? (lateral)
    • Lightening force
      • I hope you enjoy my little joke.
  • Conclusion
    • If you were in F-Zero X, what would your car's name be?
    • Any final words?
