Adding your own models to RAD Sandbox

Have you wondered exactly how you can get your model in your RAD powered game? Here is a step by step video to show you how, Dell…

I have seen a few videos, some of my own included, that just don’t tell you how to add your own models to RAD in a clear and precise way, start to finish, in one video where the directions form the speaker can be heard, and in HD so that what is done can also be clearly seen. This should be exactly what a few of you have asked for more than once. Something else you don’t understand or need a clearer video of? Let me know, Dell. #RAD#3DRAD#GameCreation#DellSweet

Tourmoil

Disclaimer: Disclaimer: TOURMOIL is under constant development, at this point the first full version with a menu is around 1.05 GB. The downloaded archive can be extracted anywhere. All cars are playable. The menu needs .NET Framework 5 to run, also included. Enjoy! 🙂

*This is the latest update/download of Tourmoil from our friends in Hungary! This is a full working version of the game so far.

Here is the link to the current, full version of the game – 1,05 GB: http://meltingpot.hu/tourmoil/TOURMOILFULL.zip

Updated the drive

I spent this morning updating the Google Drive collection. Models, games, abandon ware, open source, public domain and more. Today:

Open Source LUA script collection: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1jFa3qYkUJwO8cVFYGxqs5SzBpgiAkNzO?usp=sharing

LUA scripting works with OGRE and with RAD 7.22 and RAD Sandbox with very small changes. So this bank of scripts will help you to expand your projects/games and abilities to access parts of the 3D Engine through direct scripting.

I also finished my little side project of the VAN-Pickup build: Download it… https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1FPXTYAOSLLlJcfn75e5mUd83AX-CQKXh?usp=sharing

And last, Super Racing. Super Racing is an Open Source/Public Domain OGRE project that is very modifiable and will also show you how to work with OGRE and Crazy Eddies GUI system: Get it: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1OT7hYJtC9a355xPXV6yhRkTwG9QoUbDa/view?usp=sharing

As usual my models and the things upload and offer are freeware, public Domain, you can do as you like with them, Dell.

Working directory

This is the directory on my model drive where I work on projects. The only drawback for you is it is all in Direct X, as that is what I use. But you may run across 3DS or FBX or even OBJ dependent upon what I am working on. One of the folders is called parts. I use that fold a lot. Every custom piece I make is stored there. Need a front military truck bumper? An engine? Wheel model. Front bush guard? Driver? You get the idea, they are all in there and more Plus all the models I am working on right now, in various stages of completion.

It is all free for you to use and or copy and or modify. No attribution, I release it as Public Domain. Enjoy. If you find something on my site that isn’t free, tell me. I list things others build if they are free, but if they get it on the site and then decide to charge for it, I’ll remove it. If you would like to share something, or suggest some build, send it to me authordellsweet@gmail.com Yes, I’m an actual author and I do this in my spare time.

Go to https://www.read.netreadz.com and you will find my books, some free eBooks of mine, a couple of podcasts I produce, my blog and more. Enjoy this new directory. It is on Google Plus on a paid plan. I own it and pay for it, so it won’t go anywhere.

Dirt Track Racing 2 – Abandon-ware

I collect old software, abandon-ware, old DOS or Windows based games that are free to use, play, download. And I’m uploading them to my Google Space, 200 GB, and about an 1/8 of it used so far. I upload it and make it public from the link I post here.

Dirt Track Racing: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/17tW3OZPemkscl9BK47fvf33UZ0Mmq5Cd?usp=sharing

The game is there, dozens of tracks, modding tools and more. About 2 GB of files you can download freely. I checked every file, Google checked them, no problems.

I have my own version, modded, and have added my own models, tracks and more. For an older game it has a lot going for it. I continue to play it and it continues to provide high quality fun.

It’s a blast. With the editors you can create or modify tracks. There is a model converter, so you can grab the models in the game or add new models.

A capture of the track. I can save it to 3DS or X, either use it in RAD Sandbox or 3D RAD 7.22, or customize it and add it back to the game.

The old box image

I added the LeadFoot tracks and trucks to my version, so I can drive those on any of the tracks I choose. I actually purchased LeadFoot, like 5 bucks, and pulled the trucks and tracks from it with the customizing tools and editors. Nearly the same engine, just a few changes between the two, and the same setup for how it accesses the files, so easy to get what you want.
