Lego Racers Unity remastered.

Recommended Posts

Maxim Ivanov

Hello lego maniacs. I think what i'm not one, who wanna create LEGO Racers remastered. 

I wanna share with you what i have for that moment. This is my graduating college project and think, what end with little demo at the end of May.
I'm really junior on programming. Maybe you can give me some advices and this will be really grate!

My big problem for now this is AI for enemies. ML-Agents really dark thing. and mapping, because i'm more specialist with programming then 3D modeling.  
All LEGO models was imported with Blender Ldraw addom.

Thank you for your attention.

Awesome. If you're interested in recreating old voiceover from the original game, I'm available; how many assets from LEGO Racers are to be ripped vs. new?

Only music and some UI sounds will stay old. I saw video with old voices and think they sounds cool in our time. I mean their quality on high level.
I don't have powerbricks sounds pickup and using sound (canonball shot, oil trap and etc.). But first, need to train my enemies "drive normally". and after that, i can build next level of "pyramid".
Build a base first, you know.

This is really awesome! Are you hoping to take it beyond a single race if things go well, or will it remain a demo project?

Best of luck in figuring out the AI, worst case scenario you could cheat like the original developers did and have them operate on a set path ;)

I hope what future demo isn't end point. 
Anyway i need to receive the permission for any kind of publishing from HIGH VOLTAGE studio. I already write to them year before, but didn't get any response, sadly :( . I don't want a situation like with guys who try make remake of New Vegas of F3? on Fallout 4 engine and they got many problems with original developer.

Off topic thing.


I have the original LEGO Racers disk with russian licensed translation. I want to collect all discs with a similar design (i mean side face position). I know what Rock Riders and Legoland games have same design. Thanks for attention.

Did you use Topaz Gigapixel for upscaling  pictures ?

Just so you don't have to re-do all the models: Please look into flat/smooth shading of 3D models, the ones in the photo above all have flat shading which makes them look incredibly blocky. Models usually require a combination of smooth and flat edges, this can actually be automated in Blender using the Edge Split modifier, if you're using that. I can't tell if all the models have this issue, but the sooner you fix it the better things will look!

Thanks for that. 
In that moment i have no time for learning Blender deeper then i know now.
I use Ldraw to blender addon for exporting lego models. Addon has the setting for increasing model quality, but many high quality models on unity scene makes FPS lower, which is bad :(
I really want my models to look good, but my lack of knowledge of blender does not give me the chance to make models better. I am also limited in time, because, firstly, this is my college project, in which I act as a programmer, not a 3D designer. And with creating the game i need do many paperwork...

If everything goes well, then over time I will polish the outer parts of the game, since for me now the mechanics of the game are in higher priority than the models.

And now i can understand indie game devs feels, so much work for one guy, if you have no team i mean. :)

Little video about main menu progress. 
All menu on Russian language special for my college project. I created a new "LEGO Racers font" design for Russian alphabet.  

 
in the future everything will be in English.

Assuming I continue to have free time, once the programming of the game is mostly done I'm happy to help out with the Blender side of things as I have a little experience doing that sort of thing :)

I'll take a note, if suddenly something is needed, I will definitely ask you. 
Thanks a lot

Seriously ? It's a picture created with Blender ? Not real Lego ?

This looks very promising!

 

If you want to have remastered music in the game you can notify me! I have uploaded songs in the Youtube before and made thread about it in here. Link: 

 I hope we can be in touch!
