Train Simulator

Part 1: Background and Train.

OK. to start off, open Flash and start a new document. We'll start with the background.
Make sure that the properties are as follows: Background = White. Frame Rate = 12fps. Actionscript=2. Flash Player = 7. Size = 550x400 pixels.
Make a medium-grey box at these dimensions: w:550 h:93.7 and put it at the bottom of the page. Make another darker one with the following dimensions: w:550 h:92.3 and place it just over the other one. Make a white box to fill up the last space. If you want to do some design on the wall (which is the white box), do it now. You can also do a track piece if you like. Next make a new symbol (insert>new symbol) and call it "train". Make sure its a movie clip. Now draw your train. Make sure its length is 530px and the height is 73px. do whatever design you like, as long as its that size and also, make 3 carriages with 2 doors in each. That’s the first part, the next one is hard, if you do it my way.

The flash's horizontal road drive was done in CS4 and was upgraded to CS6. The car responds to right/ left key and flash will auto-generate the movement of roads from left-right or right-left based on random number. Have fun driving in this virtual environment and avoid other cars... :) If you are creative, a road driving game can be created from it.
