DEATH RACE 2004! (GAMING THE SYSTEM, PART I)
Humvees, GTOs, Cooper Minis, and what looks sort of like the Flinstone's family car are rumbling back and forth in the closed raceway, and it seems appropriate at this point to put on my Hunter S. Thompson avatar, with the cigarette holder and the bottle of whiskey, while I watch a round of Route 66 Demolition Derby. The match I watch features a mouse and a giant green man and other competitors, and they proceed to biff each other like crazy, skittering around in the underground track, and then up the ramp into the open air course. Wheels, doors, whole chassis fly through the air, with each successful hit, and careen along the ground, sometimes in slow motion. Right now, most of the mayhem goes on in silence, and the crashes register with the default sound effect of generic objects banging together.
"Sound kills the sim," explains Bonecrusher Slate, Route 66's development team leader.
"Physics do, too," adds Ryen Jade, as he struggles out from under the smoking wreck of what seems to be a tribute to the "Dukes of Hazzard" muscle car.
"When you abuse the physics system like us," Slate continues, "sounds have to be cut for bandwith reasons."
"Sounds like a bag of coconuts!" I observe.
"Mmmmm," says Ryen, homerishly, "coconuts."

Thanks for coming out Hamlet. You should come back and try our other 2 attractions when you have time (Crash Test and Toxic City). Or feel free to stop by and SMASH in the arena to release some of that pent up journalistic anger :)
Posted by: Bonecrusher Slate at May 19, 2004 9:28:30 AM
Bonecrusher, I didn't get a chance to ask amid the carnage, but could you give us a "layman's explanation" of how you and your team script the cars to take damage/explode/etc.? Go ahead and post right here in the entry forum, if you like...
Posted by: Hamlet Linden at May 20, 2004 5:10:26 PM
Sorry Hamlet, I planned on posting the scripting secret here for your readers, but I ran out of gas! I got a flat tire! I didn't have change for cab fare! I locked my keys in the car! An old friend came in from out of town! Someone stole my car! There was an earthquake! A terrible flood! Locusts! IT WASN'T MY FAULT, I SWEAR TO GOD!
(read the above in your best Jake Blues voice from The Blues Brothers) :)
Posted by: Bonecrusher Slate at May 21, 2004 9:45:31 AM
Heh. But I didn't mean a detailed description that'll give away any secrets-- just a general summary for the "layman" kind of reader. Or stay mum like Jake, up to you!
