ActionScript Create a Car Game

Posted 07 May 2007 - 05:57 PM

I want to create a game like Create a Stang or Create a Ride. In this game you can pick a car then swap parts to create a car you like. Now I need to know some pointers or tips something to get me started maybe even some example ActionScript for it would be nice. Well I am thinking you would create a base car then add something to it and make it a separate image or "symbol" per say, make the ActionScript so when the user clicks on a certain part of the menu it will change the part on the car. I made a simple game in Flash. Well if anyone can help me it would be greatly apperciated.

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 0

it all depends how complicated you want the user interaction, if you just wanted to click a certain item and the object on the car change, it is relativity easy…

just in onRelease of the object set the visibility of other objects.


But drag and drop stuff a whole lot different….

Have a go post some code and we can give you a hand

Yea, I want it so that they click a button on the menu and it will change the look of the car. So you said it will be relativily easy so I really just need something to get me off and started. You said onRelease I know it's a bit of code but like what does it do or go or what, please explain. Now the problem I am having is how do I get an image on the stage? I want to trace the car then put it as a "symbol", then delete the picture off the stage so it's just the car. Thanks.

Ok the first thing that you are going to needed to do is understand the basics of flash. And the best way is with tutorials

I would suggest the tutorials that come in flash’s help, - just open flash and press f1, and click on flash tutorials.

or click this link for the online version
