Well I would think it would be like how a hamster gets in his wheel. But who knows.

but the cage that keeps the big wheel together and on the ground is blocking any way of an entrance... well i think.... maybe the creator has some idea xD:confused:

The way you get in is really simple. Just jump and go back a level (then you will be standing in the housing). If that made any sense. If thats not possible then... **** haha.

It does look like that thing from Southpark! I got the idea from Steamboy though. (which, is a good movie if you watch the japanese language version, the english dubbing is just embarrassing in my opinion!)

u mean like while jumping go like back or forth in the layers...... well thats an idea but i don't think i ever saw anyone doing something like that in a video? what u could do is like doing the same thing they did in a video and u stepped into a airplane and a door opened u could dot he same... another question when the ball is spinning around the cage int he middle will spin around as well and what Ive the cage makes loops instead of the ball :P you've got some problems to solve i guess but if u experiment with it enough I'm sure you'll be able to do it Good luck from me and when its done when the game comes out i would love to see it ^^

I can see what you mean, but that is why there are stabilizers on either side connected to the main frame. This should prevent the frame from spinning, and alow the large wheel to turn freely.

As regard to the layers, I think it may work. In one of the videos there are like little cubby holes with collectables in and such that Sackboys 'jump' into and this idea really is no different, it just happens to be part of a vehicle. However, i won't know for sure until i can get my hands on the game!! I can't wait haha. Thanks for the questions as well, hopefully i answered them ok.

yeah i was looking at ur design picture and later is aw that the stabilizers were holding the frame on its place and well i hope so that the jump+layer switch will work out ^^ cant wait to see ur work when the game comes out ^^

Oh Marino that episode was nasty and horrible :(

I like this idea, as long as you don't make it the South Park machine.

Yeah, you're right. I should probably delete that picture. Enough people know what I mean. :p

Wow, I think this is one of the most unique ideas for a vehicle design a have seen yet. Not only would this work amazingly, but it looks beautiful too! Great job on the design.

Thats a nice design man! How do you do the cardboard effect on your images?

It needs a little work on the wheels to make it look like a Sack wheel but that's pretty awesome!

I use Photoshop. The cardboard effect is simply a picture of cardboard overlayed onto my design. I just use it to make it look abit more organic, and less sterile.

WOW, What is that?!

Thats from Star Wars general Grievous cityscout, but the race between the trike and a your vehicle would be pretty intense i guess :P

If anyone is old enough to remember.. The GIJoe series had a vehicle similar to this, minus the stabilizers. I just like the idea of a round vehicle. Reminds me or playing with tires as a kid. :)

it would be fairly simple to make a real one wheel vehicle... just make the sitting are fre hanging on make sure the heavy parts are at the bottem to keep the general seating are strait instead of flipping...

Brilliant design Terrance - that's the kind of creative thinking that'll make your levels special!
