The Torque is included on the CD with this book. Later on we will discuss Torque in more detail—and you will understand why Torque was chosen. Scripts As you've just seen, the engine provides the code that does all the hard work, graphics rendering, networking, and so on. We tie all these capabilities together with scripts. Sophisticated and fully featured games can be difficult to create without scripting capability. Scripts are used to bring the different parts of the engine together, provide the game play functions, and enable the game world rules.

Visual Artist During the design stages of development, game artists draw sketches and create storyboards to illustrate and flesh out the designers' concepts. 9 demonstrates a conceptual design sketch created by a visual artist, and used by the development team as a reference for modeling and programming work. Later they will create all the models and texture artwork called for by the design document, including characters, buildings, vehicles, and icons. The three principal types of 3D art are models, animations, and textures.

Graphics Torque does not perform its own graphics rasterization; instead, it uses the OpenGL graphics API. Torque includes a utility library that extends OpenGL to support higherlevel primitives and resources. Torque has a collection of utility functions that add support for complex primitives and resources like fonts and bitmaps and that add simple functions for more easily managing textures and 2D rasterization. Torque includes a texture manager that tracks the loading and unloading of all textures in the game.
