Here is a little screenshot of some work-in-progress for my Ludum Dare jam game. It features Molehill (Flash 11) hardware accelerated 3d graphics and is using only about 20,000 polies. The terrain is generated on the fly using a heightmap jpeg image and is textured using the “splatting” techniques for detailed textures that fade from one kind to another depending on altitude. The car physics “works” but is rather floaty and (so far) extremely unstable. You can drive around the terrain and perform some crazy huge jumps and stunts, though right now you tend to flip over very easily and can’t die. I’m getting fabulous performance: it never dips below 55fps and runs fullscreen on my HD 1920×1080 monitor plus the CPU usage stays below 25%. Not bad for Flash, overall. Hopefully I can put in some actual gameplay (eg. enemies? weapons? score? gameover?) after I take a little break. Wish me luck!
