The Ferris Wheel

As much as I fear heights and roller coasters , I always found Ferris Wheels interesting. Obviously I’m not alone in this excitement. Who doesn’t find carnival rides exciting? The lights, the sounds, the motion. When it comes to game development, there’s always something that sparks the question of: ”How would this be recreated in the digital form?”

One of the challenges that I discovered was that there were only so many ways that you can make a Ferris wheel, but there was only one true way to truly make it happen. I broke this problem down into different sections. modeling, shading, animation, and scripting.
