You should also place the link of this thread inside of your signature. ;)

sfunk 06-01-2011 10:21 PM

good idea sir :) I will do that after i'm done making the newest tutorial

reuben2011 06-01-2011 10:28 PM

That reminds me, I should probably put links to what I'm talking about in my sig. :rolleyes:

sfunk 06-01-2011 10:48 PM

That would probably be a good idea :P

jediaction 06-02-2011 05:30 PM

Very nice, but please don't make 4 threads for 4 tutorials...

sfunk 06-02-2011 05:50 PM

[QUOTE=jediaction;36807]Very nice, but please don't make 4 threads for 4 tutorials...[/QUOTE]

If I was to update onoe single thread with all tutorials, it would most likely be looked over if someone was trying to find help on a certain topic hence the multiple threads, it may seem like spam but it's actually a reasonable way to make sure a newbie can use the poor search system on this forum to find help easier, Also I created this thread with all of the links to those sites so this can be a general overview of all possible tutorials, since I have the link to this overview in my signature people can easily see whats offered for the tutorials I made, I realize why you are concerned with that but it only seems reasonable to post it on mulitple threads, plus they are differently related tutorials, so if someone has a question on one,it would be helpful to continue on that thread about that specific topic instead of random motion on one post and 3d text options in the next possibly confusing people.

jediaction 06-02-2011 08:37 PM

ok. Good excuse...

sfunk 06-02-2011 10:22 PM

Not really an excuse when it was so well thought out before hand, I knew someone was going to try to say it was spam or not allowed, but if you think about it, each tutorial is it's own world, no extension of each other(though I may go back and use arty's world loader tool to make a consecutive tutorial) so since it is so, they would be classified by themselves as of now allowing assurance for a separate thread since every other world warrants it's own personal thread (besides games that are just updates of themselves,which belong on the same thread)

sfunk 06-23-2011 05:11 PM


andd i'm going to make actual videos on how to do these instead of just having these boring long butt tutorial into quick easy to follow videos on youtube, I did the setting a 3d text into a number variable already, uploading as I type this

x2495iiii 06-26-2011 12:26 AM

Odd. This thread didn't show up on my New Post list. Oh well.

Pop Quiz: What's light blue and sticky?

A: This thread, now.

sfunk 06-26-2011 12:31 AM

haha very nice post, and hopefully this stays helpful to everyone (and maybe some of the other experienced members like jedi and arty and so on could create some tutorials, and compile them all here.)

arty-fishL 06-26-2011 05:47 PM

Very useful thread. I could maybe create some tutorials, maybe.

sfunk 06-26-2011 06:04 PM

Well if you make any tutorials, just let me know, so I can put the link of the video onto this thread.

reuben2011 06-27-2011 02:23 PM

Nice. Making this a sticky will be helpful for new Alice users.

jediaction 06-27-2011 02:27 PM

Yah, looks like I don't need to make any more tutorials. The variable one and whatever else I did could be put on your thread to.

sfunk 06-27-2011 03:11 PM

sfunk 04-14-2013 01:42 AM

A nice stream lined tutorial on how to implement a fairly accurate targeting system that I came up with awhile ago, I made this since I reached 55,000 views on youtube, with over 150 subscribers. There will hopefully be a second part to it. Enjoy.

sfunk 01-07-2015 07:54 PM

Updated the list. I added a link to my new youtube video on how to make a platformer game.

RavenOfCode 04-08-2015 01:49 PM

I tried getting biturn, but it gave me a .rar file? Am i doing something wrong? As it wont let me open .rar files?

Edit: I needed 7 Zip

When converting an object to Alice... mine dont seem to be loading textures... is there a reason for this?

x2495iiii 05-06-2015 04:47 AM

Textures aren't a part of the model by default. They have to manually applied. This can be done by importing the image, then changing the object's properties to have the imported image as the texture.

Funnybone 05-06-2015 09:35 PM

I assume this took you an hour to write?

And how do you change the properties?

As I cant just apply any old texture to a person...
