Ski Stunt Extreme is my name for a series of custom levels I created for Ski Stunt Simulator a few years ago. The game data for Ski Stunt Simulator is exposed as plain text. The terrain is a series of 2D points and the stage pass/fail logic is TCL. With a little bit of hacking it was easy enough to figure out how to make brand new levels. Michiel van de Panne has graciously allowed me to distribute this modified version. So, for the first time anywhere, I present a Fun-Motion exclusive: Ski Stunt Extreme!

What to Add?

Ski Stunt Simulator has a dozen or so levels, which is decent amount for a physics game, but an addicted player will quickly exhaust the game’s content. In addition to simply more content, there are a few things that I specifically wanted to try:

Bigger Jumps

The original levels have a few large jumps, but for the most part the levels are fairly small. I wanted to see how the game would play with very large jumps and, in general, larger levels. I did this with Extreme by creating a “Mega Jump” stage and two “Long Jump” stages. The new levels let you catch a ridiculous amount of air.

Trickier Terrain

The original Ski Stunt levels are fairly smooth. With the exception of Road Jump and Death Valley, the terrain is rather unobstructed and very naturally shaped. In Extreme, I tried an abstract loop stage, added items like springboards to existing levels, made another Jetpack level, and created a longer skill course level with more unusual contours.

The wrong way to do the skill course stage:

And, for the record, a successful run:

Per-Level Control

It’s actually possible to set the ski binding strength on a per-level basis with the game’s scripting language. This allows the level designer to create levels that would be nearly impossible with the default binding strength, or to create levels made to be played with very low binding strengths. At the start of each of the levels I added text with the level goal, binding strength, and other information.

I also tried a few different stage goals, such as a long jump level that requires minimum air time but without any rotation. The original game focuses a lot on required flips; I thought it would be interesting to try a jump without a flips (it’s a lot harder than it sounds).

Ski Stunt Extreme Features

  • 7 new levels
  • More Jetpack Fun
  • Insane Level Goals (how does an 8x flip sound?)
  • Expert Difficulty

The Future of Ski Stunt

I think there’s a lot more to be done with Ski Stunt Simulator modification. With some cleverness one could even set up longer levels that play more like a platformer than a ski simulator. There are a lot of other fun concepts that could be tried, too: a half-pipe, huge vertical drops, tunnels that snake around, etc.

Every now and then I get the itch to do more with Ski Stunt. Please leave your feedback in the comments–if there’s enough demand I could try my hand at another round of levels. It’s a lot of fun to make levels for one of the great physics games.

In our Ski Stunt Simulator interview Michiel mentions he’s considering releasing the game’s source. I really hope he does. A game like this is ripe for a community that could take things to a bold new era of physics-y goodness. And I do loves me the physics-y goodness.

    very fun new levels! I was hoping for more levels (esp. with bigger jumps) after playing through the original.

  2. Krakle said,

    on February 22nd, 2006 at 3:40 pm

    Cool new levels! Great site too :). It would be cool if he would release a source.

  3. Verners said,

    on February 22nd, 2006 at 11:04 pm

    WoW, will try thos out when back from uni.

    Would you care to make a guide how to edit the levels? A realy small one, just to cover the basics???

  4. Verners said,

    on February 23rd, 2006 at 2:31 am

    I tried them all now. I liked the Skill Course 1 most. Could be 3 time longer though.

    had a problem with the long jump level. Even if i dont spin, it tells me that i had a flip!?!

    Well, if you need ideas for a level pack, then mine would be to make a skill level pack, where its tricky to get to the end. Like the skill Course 1, just more tricky and longer…

    ahahaha! i waited so long for new maps! THANKS!

  6. Irma said,

    on February 24th, 2006 at 2:44 am

    uh oh…. the brake button won’t work :P

  7. Matthew said,

    on February 24th, 2006 at 8:23 pm

    Verners: Thanks for the feedback. I could make a quick guide on how to edit the levels. It’s been awhile since I did these, so I’m not sure if I even have the tools I used lying around anymore (I had a curve editor that I used to create the terrain data).

    lrma: I disabled brake, yeah–mostly because I didn’t even know about it during my first few months of play. It almost felt like cheating after I discovered it, so I took it out ;)

    hey those levels are great, this game is awsome…PLease do more!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!thankyou

    Ski stunt is the greatest game ever and Ive searched for more levels for longer than I should have. These levels rule large. Thankyou very much, I pretty much only play this game and new levels kick.

    Thankyou, Ive got 5 of my friends addicted.
    Please create more levels

  10. Dylan said,

    on March 6th, 2006 at 4:18 pm

    Really nice levels! I can’t beat long jump 1, but i beat all the other ones. I hope you make more, they’re really awesome! Brake is disabled though…

  11. Verners said,

    on March 7th, 2006 at 12:24 pm

    How did you guys beat the one where you shoudnt spin? I cant win it even without spining.

  12. Spencer said,

    on March 7th, 2006 at 5:53 pm

    yeah please make some more maps that would be awesome. It would be awesome if there was some type of nearly un-winnable level.

  13. Steve said,

    on March 8th, 2006 at 7:17 am

    Is there a way to complete the custom course?? or is it just there to mess around with???

  14. Thomas said,

    on March 8th, 2006 at 10:50 am

    I had a look at the files involved in each level, and fooling around with the design of the tracks isn’t at all difficult. The file titled “go” is where you should start.
    I made a small php script to generate a bitmap of how a level looks. If I get some time over and there’s interest I could do a little level editor/designer which lets you export complete level packages (zip files) for easy install.

  15. Matthew said,

    on March 8th, 2006 at 11:09 am

    The long jump level sometimes fails even if you didn’t do a full rotation. I don’t think I can fix this, because the core engine does the flip detection.

    Steve: There isn’t a way to complete the custom course, no–it’s just there to play with.

    Thomas: A proper level editor would be fantastic. My tool chain for creating these new levels was a little rough, and I don’t think I even have them anymore (it’s been a year or two). I’d love to check out any tools you create.

  16. Thomas said,

    on March 8th, 2006 at 4:19 pm

    It’s a shame the main game is a bit crash-prone, and sometimes loses focus. Several of my colleagues are hooked to it, but frustrated by the fact that they only get to play for a couple of minutes before it crashes or loses focus (= restart). However, I guess more gets done around the office that way ;). Still hope the source is released so someone might fix these problems!
    I’ve spent a little time tonight working on an editor, and progress is good. The editing mode is spline-based so you don’t have to define every single level vertex to make smooth slopes.

    hi i love the game you should make it an actual video game!!

  19. Zane said,

    on March 16th, 2006 at 1:27 am

    Matthew, I love these new levels, but what I am really looking for is a way to make my own, I would love if you would release a tutorial, or some tools, I have been messing around a bit, but I can never get my textures to line up with the geometry, please do the community a favor and write a tutorial, it would be greatly helpful!
    Thanks,
    Zane

  20. Thomas said,

    on March 20th, 2006 at 12:07 pm

    Texturing a level in SSS is quite tricky. It requires you to define a mesh, complete with vertex lists and face definitions. If you omit the mesh data, the level becomes all white, which is good, because then you can at least see your level :)
    Level textures might well be an addition to my level editor later on, but right now I’ll just focus on finishing the first version.

  21. bo said,

    on March 23rd, 2006 at 5:59 pm

    Well done, the levels are pretty dope. I liked this game, but beat it quickly so the new levels are appreciated.

  22. Joe Bob said,

    on March 25th, 2006 at 10:54 am

    Please make some more levels! I am dying to play some more with this game. It’s just so fun

  23. bo said,

    on March 26th, 2006 at 5:24 pm

    The Extreme version has no brakes, in the original you could push the left mouse button to slow yourself down. You can still slow yourself down by doing additional jumps etc. but its more difficult to do some levels. Also why would you replace the beginner levels and not the training, good job thogh.

  24. Zane said,

    on March 27th, 2006 at 9:28 pm

    Thomas, Matthew told me about the editor your working on, I’m glad to hear, I have been using 3ds max and exporting it as an .obj, but i can’t get the darn textures to line up, i’m not even using a texture, just the white, but i can never get it to line up correctly, sometimes it is close, sometimes not even close. I have kinda been looking through this map pack and looking at the level structures to get a better idea how he made them, but I just added a jet pack to the megajump level which makes it quite fun! Anyways I’m looking forward to the editor, hope you finish it up soon or release an alpha or beta. thanks

    when are you goint to release a level editor?
    i would be pleased if you just make it possible to do levels like the loop levels only with lines to ride on.

    PLEASE informate, when you have a full editor to share! this game is the best and i’d love to make more levels to it by myself!
    PERKELE!

  30. Gmod_User said,

    on April 10th, 2006 at 2:31 pm

    This game definetly needs more levels! It would be awesome!

    Please make a decent Level Editor so we can have more levels.

    It would also be nice if there was like an online level distributor that people could post their new maps on!

  31. Thomas said,

    on April 13th, 2006 at 2:59 pm

    Heh, something like that is already finished ^_^ Everything will most likely be released next week.

    on April 22nd, 2006 at 12:06 am

    Thomas, you are the man. If the level editor is even remotely decent (and it looks/sounds awesome), I will not be able to thank you enough. Are the levels going to be able to load in the original SSS, or the extreme one? Cause I kinda miss my braking action… Either way, I’m sure it will be sick. Good luck with it, I can’t wait.

    Terribly sorry! Been totally bogged down with work (as always, eh?). But i’ll most superlikely release a beta this weekend, marking off the functions that aren’t complete so you at least can fool around with it. You know how it is; can’t stop adding features… Anyhow, watch this spot!

    Thomas, you are simply the best! With your editor, the replayability of this game will rise up ski high.

  63. Ian said,

    Thomas, that screenshot you posted of the level editor looked amazing.

    I play Ski Stunt quite a bit, making levels would be AWESOME.

    Figured I’d chime into the crowd hoping for a level editor

  84. M45t3r said,

    on June 7th, 2006 at 1:23 am

    James right, we don’t want super uber duper editor, we just want to draw our own levels and at least to be option to save it and load it.

  85. Alcatus said,

    on June 7th, 2006 at 4:47 am

    He is definitely working very hard on it. Fixing bugs, adding new things, making changes, and stuff like that. The reason why it is taking so long is probably because he wants to make a perfect jewel of an editor. That is precisely what most of us are expecting.
    Otherwise, we can only wait, period. We know that there is no other Thomas out there making an editor for Ski Stunt.

  86. Jason said,

    This is hilarious. SkiStunt is my favorite freeware game, but there’s a serious impatience issue going on. You guys posting need to buy another game for a bit and then come back later to see an update. The more time the better the quality.
    I enjoyed beating the levels. Difficulty was just right. Sweet work.

    I’m getting that memory read error that Peter was getting. Any idea how to fix it? It seems to happen after a certain amount of time in any stage.

  110. Matthew said,

    on July 19th, 2006 at 3:51 pm

    Bob: The only solution I’m aware of is to habitually restart the stage after every 10 tries or so. Kind of a pain…

  111. Bob said,

    on July 19th, 2006 at 5:39 pm

    It can happen even on the first attempt. Seems to happen the most after crashing though, and almost always occurs after jetpacking for a while after crashed. I’m curious as to how that other guy fixed it.

  112. Bob said,

    on July 19th, 2006 at 6:01 pm

    Actually, I managed to fix it by not installing the original at all, and only the extreme pack. Strange.

    Does anyone besides mathew know how to get just the white background? I made a basic map editor a while ago. It’s not spline based like Mathews but it still works. It also doesn’t line the textures up because I don’t know how to. I would love to just have the white background. Maybe I’ll post what I have

    I think this is alright but it’s too hard, I feel like a trillion times and still couldn’t get it, so then I went to Setup and put Very Tight for the Skis and it didn’t seem to make a difference, but none the less i’ve been dieing for a new Ski Stunt Sim so i’m just happy there is one, keep it up man!

    I loved this game ever since I found the java version. I always wanted to make crazier levels but don’t have the computer know how. one suggestion I have is to make a OS X compatible version, please! Other than that is there anyway to make a customizer that lets you create the slope of the landscape and also lets you save the levels for future play and sharing. One thing that was dissapointing about the other version was that once you made a level and saved a replay, it didn’t remember where the objects were placed and the skier just bounced around.

    GREAT GAME, KEEP IT UP!

    on January 31st, 2007 at 4:36 pm

    “Also anybody know how to get a jetpack on different levels, maybe by changin codes?”

    If you open the “go” file in the jetpack stage folder in wordpad, there is a section called “add jetpack” or something like that. copy the whole section, and paste it in the “go” file of the level where you want to use it. gives crazy results on the hut level, but I think it works on all the others

    any news on the editor?

  150. McTuble said,

    on March 23rd, 2007 at 2:22 pm

    I’ve had an editor for it that i made but haven’t worked on in forever. I actually posted it here before. Somehow my post isn’t on here anymore. It’s not exactly user friendly but it works if you know what you’re doing. If you want it to at least mess around with it can be found at http://www.seantublewicz.com/SSMEv0.83.zip if you perhaps would like some help with it I can be reached on AIM. SeanTuble

    Basically the editor exports the height file so if you put the exported file in the right place and modify another file so you start in the right spot. It will work. Anyways I’d like to get some feedback on it so please message me or comment here. It’s far from finished I agree but it’s better then nothing.

  151. McTuble said,

    on March 29th, 2007 at 7:19 am

    Please post here if you’d downloaded the editor. In the next few days perhaps I’ll be releasing my own version of skistunt. So there is Ski Stunt Simulator, Ski Stunt Extreme and mine will be Ski Stunt ST. The main advantage of this will be that you won’t need to setup the editor. It’ll be easier for people to mess with maps. Right now I just need to finish a few more maps and then some other things.

  152. Lau said,

    on March 29th, 2007 at 1:09 pm

    Great. I can’t wayt to do some maps. I took a look at the editor, looks really good. I am missing the props thou, is that right? stones and trees and so on.

    Thank you for doing this

  153. commandercool said,

    on April 3rd, 2007 at 12:31 pm

    Thank you so much, McTuble-a level editor just opens up so many possibilities. I have downloaded it and it seems great, but I still cannot seem to actually play my levels. Where do you put the file it creates? I am assuming you go into skistunt and replace one of the level .txts in /scripts, but I can’t get it to play. Help (or merely the release of your version) would be fantastic and greatly appreciated.

  154. McTuble said,

    on April 4th, 2007 at 5:12 am

    Howdy. I made my own version. It’s called SkiStuntST but the names not important :) Anyway this version contains all the maps that came with the original game plus a new section called ST Levels. There are 3 maps on that. stLong and stMulti are two maps that I made with my editor and there is one called Map Editor. I’ve included the map editor in the version. The hardest part about the editor has always been user friendliness. This should be a good step towards eliminating that. So now just in your skistunt folder there is a folder named Map Editor. Run SSME.exe in there and you’ll be good. When you hit EXPORT MAP it’ll update ski stunt files so when you go back into it the MAP EDITOR map will show the changes. Also what I like to do is have ski stunt and the editor open at the same time. So I test the map find something I want to change just go back to the menu in ski stunt then in the editor make some changes, hit export then back in ski stunt re select the map and you’re good to go. Also with this version I’ve included two playbacks of me completing the levels. Mainly so on stMulti you can see the hard line. There are two ways to do that level. The easy way doesn’t get you very far before you hit a quarter pipe and can’t continue the harder line jumps over the quarter pipe and there are a bunch of jumps after. Anyway let me know what you think of it. Either let me know on here or aim. Lau: Yes you’re right there are no props in the editor. I’m eventually going to add them. I don’t think they’d be too hard to add. Take care and enjoy.

  155. McTuble said,

    on April 4th, 2007 at 5:13 am

    haha I know I’d forget it. The new version (Ski Stunt ST) can be found at: http://www.seantublewicz.com/skistuntst.zip

  156. McTuble said,

    on April 9th, 2007 at 1:43 pm

    Just an update…..I started working on a new editor. This new one will look much better and have more functionality. Hopefully SkiStuntST and the included editor will hold you over until the new editor is far enough along to release.

    on April 20th, 2007 at 7:47 pm

    I think it’d be cool if we could have an option to turn the jetpack on for all levels. I think that the “skill run” or w/e would be really fun with a jetpack.

    Also, it’d be cool if you made something like worms armageddon has, where black = ground, white = sky. Crazy loops/ridiculous jetpackage would be cool too.

    Oh, and I was trying something new on the cratejets level: Try getting all of the crates up onto the hill on the end, then flying back to the beginning-without dying. I’ve only managed it once, but it’d be interesting to add that to an actual level.

  160. McTuble said,

    on April 21st, 2007 at 2:37 pm

    The Create a Skier thing is something I can see myself doing in the future but as of now I have alot of work til I get to that point. I’m having a hard time getting this new editor off the ground. Just some issues with the new GUI library I’m using. The big spike pit level you’re talking about would be easy enough to make with the editor right now.

    One thing I like to do with the ravine jetpack level is set myself down nice and easy in the pit then fly back out without dying.

    The white sky would be easy. The sky image it uses you can just replace with a white image however the black ground I cannot really do yet. I can’t figure out how the texturing of the ground works really. The only thing I could do right now is create one with white sky and a black outline of the course.

    If anyone wants to see other things I have created you can check out my site at http://www.seantublewicz.com

    on April 21st, 2007 at 11:08 pm

    I love this. Great game.

    The skill course is awesome, bu if I ever want to see another course it would be an extension on Hut Jump with more of the same, I just can’t ge enough of that course, it’s just balanced for me somehow.

  162. McTuble said,

    on May 18th, 2007 at 6:36 am

    When the editor becomes more complex perhaps I or someone else can remake the hut level. I do think it’s a great idea and done decent. I just wisj the jumps were smoother and he used some higher quality textures.

  163. Frix said,

    on May 28th, 2007 at 3:14 am

    It’s a great game, and the map editor is a great idea!

    Do you know that you can also change all the pictures used in the game? For example, you can give the skier your own head, or put text in the landscape. Nice when you’re bored. :p Only remember that the program uses the contours of the default shape. And for some reason, it doesn’t work when you paste an image in the image you’re modifying.

    There was a break button on the original Ski Stunt?…
    Man I feel like a moron now..

  166. McTuble said,

    on June 17th, 2007 at 8:52 pm

    Yeah there was a brake button however Matthew took it out and I left it out in my version. It is POSSIBLE to make a version that works with Vista however it’s very unlikely considering the creator is far too busy with other work to do it. The only way it’d happen is if someone sat down and coded their own. The only thing close to this which I’m really crossing my fingers for is called Mad Skills Motocross and it can be found at http://www.turborilla.com It’s a motocross game with a ski stunt feel and it’s still in development now with no beta or anything so cross your fingers with me.

    Frix: I know about being able to change your skiier. At one point I had someone take a picture of me sideways and I used a little photoshop magic and made it fit into the original model. It ended up coming out pretty darn good. However yeah if you know what you’re doing you can not only change the image but the actual points where it chops off the image so you could get it perfect.

  168. on July 23rd, 2007 at 2:19 pm

    Hi Quicksilver and any other Vista slaves + Ski Stunt Extreme fanatics. I got Ski Stunt Extreme to “work” on Vista 32Bit by doing the following steps:

    1.) I extracted the files to “c:\SkiStunt Extreme\” (I’m not sure if this step is important, but it probably isn’t)

    2.) In the “c:\SkiStunt Extreme\bin\” folder find the file “skiStunt.exe”, right-click it and click “properties” in the context menu.

    3.) In the property window open the “compatibility” tab. Now, check the “Run this program in compatibility mode for:” checkbox and choose “Windows 98 / Windows Me” in the drop-down list (note: the “Windows XP (Service Pack 2)” option didn’t work for me). Also, check the “Run this program as an administrator” checkbox. Although this will prompt you to elevate privileges every time you start the game I think it is necessary as the game needs write-permission to the game folders.

    Using these settings the game now runs “almost” flawlessly. it still stalls every now and again, but then you just open the task manager, shut down the “skiStunt.exe” process tree and restart the game. Annoying, yes… But hey, at least now you can play the game most of the time. :) Hope you get it to work as well. If it doesn’t work with these settings, try messing with the compatibility tab settings from step 3. Maybe you’ll get lucky with another combination… Well, at least that’s how I got it to work.
