Make a driving game in Unity

Make a driving game in Unity

Make a complete driving game using Unity.

In this course I will show you how to create your own race tracks in Blender. We will then import into Unity and set up different types of race cars including Formula 1 style and racing cars.

Each car will have its own driving style and you can customise each car in the inspector.

This course will also cover:

  • Different handling on grass, gravel and road surfaces
  • Setting up AI cars which will compete against you in race mode.
  • Checkpoints and lap counting
  • Keeping track of car positions and displaying finish place at the end of the race
  • Mini map and mini map markers for all cars
  • Main menu, race track select menu and a car showroom, so you can buy extra cars.
  • Choosing different colours for the cars you buy
  • Leaderboard and race stats
  • Save system to save your credits and high scores
  • Race customisation system from the track options menu
  • Keyboard and gamepad control systems
  • Terrain sculpting and texturing to add extra details

By the end of this course you will have a complete game that you can continue to develop and add to. You will have also developed the skills to go onto develop your own games.

(Please note this is for computer only, it is not designed for mobile gaming)

I look forward to seeing you in my course.

Available for just $12.99 until the end of July

History of Gran Turismo

At the moment I am creating a driving based game tutorial in Unity.

I thought it would be good to share the history and evolution of one of the most sophisticated driving simulator games – Gran Turismo

Starting out on Playstation 1, this game is constantly pushing the boundaries of what you can achieve in driving sims on console and PC.

My driving course will be ready within the next month, so stay tuned for that.

Animating in Unity

Animating in Unity

My newest course is now available on Udemy.

Learn how to use Cinemachine, Animation Rigging, Unity Timeline and the Animator window to create animations in Unity

You will learn a wide variety of animation techniques and concepts in this course by completing four projects.

Project 1 – Monolith (Standard 3D Template)

We will be creating the surface of the moon, the earth and importing a spacestation to create a space fly through animated cut scene. We will be using several cameras and animating between them using Unity timeline. We will look at pacing and timing to get the imagery to match the pacing of background music.

Project 2 – Speed Tournament (Universal Render Pipeline (URP) Template)

We will be creating a photorealistic environment and importing a race track and race car to create a dynamic animated cut scene for a racing style game. The shots will be more dynamic and exciting and we will be creating these by using Cinemachine. We will be using virtual cameras and dolly cameras with tracks. We will be incorporating physics elements alongside keyframed animation. We will look at techniques for creating impressive slow motion effects. We will be blending between different post processing effects to create depth of field shots, lens flares and more, to give the animation a AAA quality feel to it.

Project 3 – Shootout (High Definition Render Pipeline (HDRP) Template)

We will setup a low poly desert scene with a cowboy shootout involving three cowboy characters. We will use the Animation rigging package to setup multiple constraints to control the cowboy characters using Inverse Kinematics (IK). We will incorporate Two bone IK, Position constraints, rotation constraints,  look at, parent constraints and finger IK to create a fluid animation rig for each character to make it easy to make complex character animations. We will continue to use Cinemachine to create the shots that will tell a short story.

Project 4 – Blendshapes (Standard 3D Template)

Using a pre made character, we will create our own blend shapes for the face and clothes in Blender. We will then import the character and animations into Unity and assign the correct avatar. We will animate the character’s facial expressions and this time we will use the animator window to create a non linear structure of animations that are controlled by Parameters that are controlled by C# script. This will make the final animation more interactive.

You can complete the projects in any order you like to develop different skills.

By the end of this course you will have developed a wide range of skills and techniques that will improve your own animated cut scenes and animated movies using the Unity real time game engine.

Why not enrol today and I’ll look forward to seeing you in my course.
