    Hey folks!
    I have developed indie skate-/snowboarding games since 5 years. Besides, I have published some popular Asset Store products (e.g. MRLE).

    Images from my game Mad Snowboarding

    I would like to know if you guys(and girls) are interested in a Snowboard Game Starter asset on the Asset Store?

    It would be a complete game template project with a feature list like this:
    • Snowboard Player Controller
    • Snowboard Camera Controller
    • Snowboard Animations (riding, tricks, etc...)
    • Snowboard Trick System (animation, score system, controls)
    • Snowboard Character Selection Screen
    • Snowboard Item Selection Screen (apparel, equipment, etc...)
    • Snowboard Level Selection Screen
    • Snowboard Multiplayer (split screen, online)
    • Snowboard Mesh Trail Renderer (Snow Mesh Trail Renderer)
    • Snowboard Level Editor (Multiplatform Runtime Level Editor)
    If you are interested in an Asset Store product featuring a Snowboard Game Starter, then please leave a comment. Any feature requests are welcome!

    Yep, interested, do I hold off buying your terrain editor ? lol ;)

    Edit: That is a serious question btw hahahaha, debating buying both your assets today, was going to ask if you had an issue with me making a boarding game with your assets, I would take the assumption you don't haha, I will be trying out your games hopefully today after the day of coding woop

    Sure you can make any type of a game with my assets. If you want to make a snowboarding game, then I will be happy to help you doing it with my Asset Store Products!

    Unfortunately, three developers interested in a snowboarding starter package are not enough..., but if you are in the need of some certain components, for example, snowboarding animations then I could upload a small package to the store for you.

    Don't take forum interest as your only source of feedback on numbers interested !

    I've also been wanting to see a snowboarding template for a long time on the asset store.

    I'm sure the template sales would definitely be worth the work involved, especially more so if you have code base already put together from your previous games. As long as it's priced reasonably, I don't see why you wouldn't garner a decent proportion of sales. The templates / source projects are some of the biggest sellers on the asset store.

    Regards

    Could you please tell me what would be a reasonable pricing for you. I would try to split the project into components like those listed below. This way, I could offer the starter package for a low price. If more functionality is needed, then extensions could be purchased.

    Core Package
    •Snowboard Player Controller
    •Snowboard Camera Controller
    •Snowboard Animations (riding, tricks, etc...)
    •Snowboard Mesh Trail Renderer (Snow Mesh Trail Renderer)

    Trick System Extension
    •Snowboard Trick System (animation, score system, controls)

    Character Selection Package
    •Snowboard Character Selection Screen

    Item Selection Package
    •Snowboard Item Selection Screen (apparel, equipment, etc...)

    Level Selection Package
    •Snowboard Level Selection Screen

    Multiplayer Package
    •Snowboard Multiplayer (split screen, online)

    Level Editor Package
    •Snowboard Level Editor

    Hi,

    From my own personal viewpoint, I'd prefer the core package contains all the elements I needed to make a game, for instance : -

    Core Package
    •Snowboard Player Controller
    •Snowboard Camera Controller
    •Snowboard Animations (riding, tricks, etc...)
    •Snowboard Mesh Trail Renderer (Snow Mesh Trail Renderer)
    •Snowboard Trick System (animation, score system, controls)
    •Snowboard Character Selection Screen
    •Snowboard Item Selection Screen (apparel, equipment, etc...)
    •Snowboard Level Selection Screen

    and, Optional Extras, available to buy separately : -

    Multiplayer Package
    •Snowboard Multiplayer (split screen, online)

    Level Editor Package
    •Snowboard Level Editor

    Take a look at this package, Racing Game Starter Kit, I own this package, and it's brilliantly feature packed, from car selection, to level select, to actual racing against opponents, and so much more, basically it's a complete game, which is superb, and one of it's main selling points.

    The main people buying full projects / templates are artists, designers and the 'new to programming', we look for full kits that we can change the art within, dig through the code a little and change stuff up, ui changes to make it our own, and so on, if I only bought the snowboard controller core package, as an artist, now I need to worry about title screens, scores, ui implementation, character select, level select, game scene setup, pause menu, etc. It's a lot to think about, which is why I prefer the more complete packages, something for you to think about anyway. Kits that have been broken down into their smallest components tend to sit unused in my assets folder, the Advanced Sniper Starter Kit, for instance, brilliant kit, but now I need to worry about building an entire framework around the core component to make a game, 'ain't nobody got time for that!'. :)

    In terms of pricing, for the core package above, between $25 and $75 dollars ? The racing game starter kit is $30 dollars, and I believe it sells very well. I have the alternative, Mobile Ski Game, which is obviously not snowboarding, but skiing, and as far as templates go, is absolutely atrocious quality. But as a point of reference, I still paid for it, because I thought I could improve upon it and make my snowboarding game. I like old style snowboarding games, 1080 Avalanche, Snowboard Kids, etc, and if there was a decent kit available where I could make my own similar games, I'd definitely be purchasing ! :)

    Regards

    Unfortunately, this is currently not on the list, because there seems to be not much interest in such a package.

    Hi, thanks for your interest in a Snow/Skateboarding template. Unfortunately, there was not enough interest in such starter templates. Hence, I have not created those.

    I also would love to see a Ski/snowboard template for Unity or any tips on how to get started. I only see old templates on the Asset Store which probably no longer work since they haven't been updated since 2012.

    Hi all,

    thanks for the interest in the skate/snowboarding starter kits.
    Currently, I'm too busy with my private life and my full time job.
    Besides, I'm busy enough with the support required for my existing products.
    Hence, I will not create any new products in the next years.

    My games were not designed to be reused by others, the code is not documented and also not flexible.
    Therefore, it would be impossible to understand it or use them as a starter kit.

    Cheers
    Denis

    Hello, I also want snowboard game source code, and I will manage if you sell me this code and I will not interrupt you after sell your code and I am able to solve all kind of problem if I will get in your assets,

    Could you please do share some in assets store or privately so that I can buy,
    I know so many guys interesting for this asset if you put it in the assets store.
    You should think about it.

    Thanks and I hope we will get a positive response.

    Hi @Gvariya,

    thanks for your interest! Unfortunately, you will find that even my existing tools through still rated with 5 stars have some 1 star entries for delayed replies. I simply don't have any time left to create new packages.

    The code of Mad Snowboarding is somewhere between 5k and 15k lines of code and is unusable without prior extraction and simplification. I will put this on my todo for the future, but I don't feel comfortable in selling the whole thing without making it usable.

    Cheers
    Denis

    Hi all, as at oct 2020 there is very little either Ski or Snowboarding templates available, also with what I feel a huge upsurge in VR coming (my interest) it is a shame, I dont know if any of you have checked out the Zugsoft Simple Snowboardings asset aside from the one featured in this thread, Im hoping that developer updates their template, anyway having read this thread I too would love to see any snowboard ski even skateboard templates,
