Looking for you...

Hi, everyone,
I am software in shanghai china, with 10 years experience of software developments, and nearly 20 years of table tennis training.

I have a idea when i was in college, that i want to create a real table tennis game, with real physics and real skills and tactics mode, the available game is so easy and foolish. i want to create a table tennis version of winning eleven soccer game, enable table tennis fans enjoy the fun of table tennis in front of computer.

to achieve my dream, i have been studied several years, including develop physics calculation model, 3d engine, 3d modeling, till now, i think i have finished the two of them, my major in college is physics, the physics mode is now just
perfect, i am a advanced software engineer and i can get through open 3d engine source code, the exception i think i just can’t handle perfectly is 3d modeling and animation, i have studied blender for nearly one year, i can model basic things now, but i know i have no art background, the ideal sportsman animation effect is far beyond my ability.

So i think i really need a partner, a professional 3d artist like software and table tennis professional like me,

I know maybe very few will be interested in my post, but i have to write to help…, because i have keep my dream moving up…

wat u exactly need?

what do u have already (in terms of models/animations) ?

well, I would not show any players at all, instead I would only show the paddle, and I would use a Wi-mote a phone etc and use the dead reckoning to “place” the paddle in the scene,

I can rig it in minutes accept the wi mote, that may take a hour to dig around,

so it can be lightning fast,

I can rig a armature to “swing” based on mouse keyboard etc, but it seems like it could not be as fun as the real thing,

after you get it perfect, then I would rig people and put them in, and use the paddle as a IK rot and loc target,

Thanks for reply,
I have built a basic scene with blender, and finished the source code regarding with ball physics,
now i have a demo and test program, the next step i need to do is i need make player animation which is key to the game fun.

if i want to do a table tennis game only with racket and ball, that should be mush simple, witch is not my goal,
the final effect i want to expect is the match should be very real and enjoyable, just like a real game you watch in TV or youtube.

when i finished table tennis, i will extend this game to tennis very fast, the current framework of source code is kept possible for that.

I would upload my demo program in another post.

test program of table tennis.
press ECS can adjust camera view or stop adjust.

It does not seem that this is an offer for an actual paying job (if this is incorrect, please let me know and I’ll move the thread back)
