Description

A truck/car simulator,with realistic physics and oldstyle graphics: it displays pixels through the SDL graphics routines, or the X11 if using that version (has some issues:so use the SDL ver).While the 3D graphics is done by the program itself without external libraries.The environment is a hilly terrain:total freedom to drive around.A remake of the classic "Terep 2". Written in the C programming language: although the code is 30 pages long, it's simple. Trailer can be detouched pressming 'l' (minuscle ELL) so to drive a normal car. There's an OpenGL version too: see the CTruck3D _Open,and an ASCII-Art ver (Term_ CTruck3D). This is also a good dydactical software: code is easy to undersand,and drawing procedures and physics sim procedure are written from 0 so it's clearly understandable how a complete 3D game is done in C, starting from a blank page of any plain text editor.Only basic knowledge of C was used.

Features

  • realistic physics: moreover impemented internally, without external libraries
  • very simple C SourceCode
  • graphics written from 0, thought enough elaborate and nice. Thanks to this fact, it has an ASCII -Art version: check the term_CTruck3D project for that version.
  • uses only 1 system-dependent library: Xlib.h , so it's very simple approach
  • compiles very easily for any POSIX-compliant operating system
  • well-documented functioning: it's itself also a dydactic software
  • Linux-only (but soon an SDL-graphics Windows ver is coming) so it all fits into a much clearer landscape. Terminal--> gcc prog.c -lX11 --> play
  • car can take damage without particular limits, and it looks also quite natural: it works only if trailer is detouched
  • has an OpenGL version (name: "CTruck3D _Open"), which runs better and is overall better , moreover runs also in Windows
  • it loads at sturtup a 300x300 heightmap from a BITMAP image file, and a colormap too.
  • A negative feature of this version in contrasto to the OpenGL version is the absence of particles / smoke when the car slips or hits the ground with its chassis: this feature may be implemented later.

    Nice idea, but the rendering is a little slow.
