Image Description, by Lennox Antoine



I had a previous release of the engine a while back (I pollute flipcode with landscape shots). This fixes a lot of things that were wrong, and overall better performance. The things present in this demo are :
  • Lod landscape (improved, very simple)
  • 3ds file import
  • Multiple actors controlled through scripts
  • Progressive meshes
  • Simple physics
  • particles posing as birds/fairies (just sprites)
  • Get it at : http://www.sinc.sunysb.edu/stu/lbantoin/

    There are however a lot of stuff that I left out so that the speed would be acceptable for most users. These include rippling water and realtime swaying fractal trees. Feedback/flames would be greatly appreciated on what is missing, or what you would like to see.

    Runs very nice on my
    Amd athlon 800, Geforce2 mx
    I got around 20 fps, but i also think your frame counter has some problems, it looks much faster than 20.

    I dont know what you guys are talking about, because you are not making intelligent words come out onto the screen. It is hard for you, I know, but you should really consult some experts before posting in this forum.

    I am surrounded by idiots...

    Okay, so I read MC_BAXTON posts yesterday. Funny shit. Please take no offense guys. :-)

    Very nice demo. What are you guys currently working on? I think it would be nice to have a thread actually where people mentioned their current projects :)

    Sincerely,
    Greg

    PS: EVERYTHING IS VERY WELL!! :-)

    Well right now I do some freelance work for Harthinian Studios, but I am in the process of searching for a job upon graduating college in 2 weeks. Hence I released a demo mainly for showcase purposes.

    Thanks for all your opinions, I will take all of them into mind in a next release. Plz don't flame MC, I think he is just a funny guy and deserves to voice his opinion also(yeah I read it also). Since its a new day, can't wait to see the new pic, and thx alot to all who wrote.
