Project Description

3D Game Kit Walkthrough

Dive deeper into the 3D Game Kit by following the full 3D Game Kit Walkthrough. For this project, follow lessons 6-10 in the walkthrough.

  1. Rock and Vegetation Painter
  2. Organizing Your Scene
  3. Game Boundaries
  4. A Deeper Look at Moving Platforms
  5. Using Counters and Switches

Either create a whole new scene or expand your scene create in Project #1. You should add the following to your scene.

  1. A larger area to explore that may take two to four minutes to explore.
  2. At least 4 more game objects from the prior tutorials, i.e. enemies, moving platforms, doors, Probuilder objects, acid pools, etc.
  3. At least 20 rocks or vegetation have been painted.
  4. The Hierarchy has been organized to find things easier. For example, an Environment object has been created with all the environment objects as child object.
  5. A Game Boundary has been used to keep the player inbounds.
  6. At least 2 moving platforms with customized, multipoint translation, duration, and loop cycles. A pressure plate trigger that activates at least one moving platform.
  7. At least one door requires multiple switches and counters to open the door. The switches give feedback to the player in the game and the UI.
