3D GAME PROGRAMMING ALL IN ONE, THIRD EDITION is perfect for anyone interested in learning the skills and processes involved in making 3D games. This new edition of the bestselling book shows you how to design and create every aspect of a fully featured game using the Torque 3D game engine. Starting with an introduction to game programming, this comprehensive book provides an overview of the gaming industry, game engines, programming, 3D concepts, texturing and modeling, and even audio engineering. After all the techniques are presented, you will use your new skills and the material on the DVD to create a game. The DVD contains everything you need to create a complete game, including all of the TorqueScript source code in sample and final form, the Torque 3D Tools Demo game engine, MilkShape 3D for 3D player and item modeling, The Gimp 2 for texture and image manipulation, Audacity for sound editing and recording, UVMapper for performing UV unwrapping tasks, and Torsion, the Integrated Development Environment tool for TorqueScript code.

exceeds the too large or too small limits. When a limit is exceeded, the change direction is reversed. Next, the scale of the shape is changed to the new values using the %shape.setScale() method for the shape. Finally, the function sets the item's transform to be the new transform values within the %shape.setTransform() statement. The DoAnimTest() function first inserts the new instance of the shape object using the InsertTestShape() function and saves the handle to the new object in the
