Confusing game - How to (start)
Hello! I'm trying to build a racing game. I want a message declaring the winners popping up in the end. Any ideas?

Which version of Alice are you using? Personally using either I would start by making the car drive and move then add the goal. And for the goal I would set a proximity sensor/event depending on which version you are using I have worked in both 2 and 3 so I know about both to an extent.

Also, if you are using Alice 3 I made something similar the car drives I still need to set my proximity sensors but, the file is attached so you can view and see if any of that helps. the arrow keys move the car and there are about 6 keys that move the camera.

In answer to your original question:

In Alice 2, "3D Text" objects can be used to display custom strings.
In Alice 3, "TextModels" can be used to display custom strings.

Hello again! I'm using Alice 3. Here's what I have so far.
I was thinking of adding a countdown timer and trying to find a way to declare who comes first, second, third and fourth.
Also, I am going to fix the problem with the player that moves forward the end of the race (I used getDistance :/ ) and also show the questions on top of the pop up box as well. What do you think?
P.S. Ignore the "weird language" my characters speak :P
