Hey, guys. So I probably spent the last 3 months learning and coding in python. I had my teacher give us a taste of PyGame, and I thought it was pretty cool. I have a grasp of all the basic concepts of Python using PyGame, but I wanted something more personal, so I found Panda3D. This is totally new to me, programming for 3D games, and using no visual level editor, so it will take a lot to get used to. The concepts are totally different, but it’s comforting to see the core Python usage in everyone’s code. I don’t really know how this community works, and if you’re used to having new guys around, then I’m happy about that. If you aren’t used to having a new guy around, just let me know and I’ll find another community!
So far, though, after looking at various codes, I’ve been able to take the Roaming Ralph, and transform it into a Roaming Ralph with WASD movement controls, as well as jumping. However, when I jump, the collision detection is still running, so I cannot hop over any objects. Any suggestions as to what I can do? Set a variable that will determine whether I’m in the air or not, and if I’m in the air, then disable the collision detection? Thanks so much for anyone’s input!
