OK OK !!!!

Ship are not mine but i like a lot HomeWorld.

Here 's 2 screenShot of my Space Application.
  • Firts you can see Octree
  • Second you can see ship in action with collision détection.
  • This is not a project but just an application to learn again and again !!!!

    Ok see you soon !!!!

    Nice shots

    I hope the first shot is not a space scene, since there is no fire in space ;)

    hey xEricx
    Actually, there can be fire in space, as long as the burning substance releases enough oxygen in the process of burning. (TNT works underwater too for example)

    Oh yeah, Samuel I like the screenshots. ;)


    July 31, 2001, 03:09 PM

    With the difference of pression between the container and the space itself, the oxygen would be spread away within a second... so it's *almost* impossible to have fire in space :)

    That's if I remember my physics well... :)

    nice, it's not a landscape engine! :) really cool ships, i want the models!


    July 31, 2001, 03:23 PM

    Maybe the red stuff is just glowing (because of extreme heat) particles of metal that are being blasted around?

    About the IOTD :
    I'm still waiting for the ultimate space adventure game. Something between a Jack Vance novel & Elite but with endless procedurally generated galaxies & impressive A.I.

    I mean if something like Elite was possible in a few thousand bytes of code, I wonder wath would be possible with today's hardware (and I'm not talking about graphics)...

    Stars burn.

    Awesome! Very cool model, nice texturing! Where did you get the model anyway?


    July 31, 2001, 03:41 PM

    Stars are massive gravity centers that does nuclear fission, that's not the same as gaz burning in space

    btw sorry for my English, I'm a French Canuck :P


    July 31, 2001, 03:47 PM

    LOL, new letter - shooter category


    July 31, 2001, 03:52 PM

    Fusion! Not fission.


    July 31, 2001, 03:54 PM

    True hehe

    I always mix both, anyway I meant the one you add neutrons and protons :)

    How about those blue beams? Or that sparkly stuff in the picture? This game is so unrealistic I will not play it no matter what! ;)


    July 31, 2001, 04:03 PM

    That looks cool. What model is the gigantic ship?

    To have fire in space you just need a source of oxygen and a source of burnable material. Besides, how else do you think they did all those cool explosions in Star Wars?


    July 31, 2001, 04:06 PM


    Anyway, as he said, it's not a Game :)

    ohh well, sorry for the comment then :P

    A french Canuck eh? 'esti de tabarnak!!'


    July 31, 2001, 04:24 PM

    haha :)

    Nice, you're Quebecker also? or just learned it? I dunno why but those are the first words learned by foreigners :)

    great IOTD!! How do you manage mobile objects in the octree?

    LordDaha, I'm interested in what you mentioned about the Elite game, I ran a search and all i got is Elite Force, can you fill me in a little on what that game is about, it sounds different.



    July 31, 2001, 04:43 PM

    uuh ?? is it a movie ?? ;)..


    July 31, 2001, 04:45 PM

    the model is from homeworld he said..

    nice shots btw..

    the fire comes from the leeking hull of the big ship :)..


    July 31, 2001, 04:46 PM

    ok.. he didnt say that but almost :)..

    I dont think there is a spce sim out there that doesn't have fire in it's explosions.

    You dont play ANY space sims I take it.

    aside from the discussion about whether or not u can have fire in space. im on the yay team btw
    is it really sensible to have an octree for a space game like this eg take the bottom picture what node is the spacecraft in? none of them which nullifys the use of an octree. dont wanna be a downner or anything but octrees fit better in plays wheres theres a lot of polygons in close proximity, something that space doesnt have much of.
    nice to see anyways a space picture makes a change.

    Elite was released in 1988 and you can find tons of info about it on the net.

    Look for "David Braben", Elite's author.


    July 31, 2001, 05:12 PM

    Those explosions are mostly to cover the low poly meshes "exploding apart"... else it would only look like a few triangles moving apart from each other. It wouldn't look realistic for the common people since they're used to see fire in the movies and stuff...


    July 31, 2001, 05:22 PM

    Well if the bullet peirced a pressurized hull (which contained oxygen) AND hit something explosive then there would be a nice short burst of red maybe ;)

    The IOTD and the news section is updated pretty late on the day compared to a week ago or two, seems like someone is having a bit of a vacation around here :-D

    Me too :)

    ">>seems like someone is having a bit of a vacation around here"

    I wish.


    July 31, 2001, 05:45 PM

    Nice Samy!
    (Where is your terrain engine? I hope that it isn't in the same place as my train sim, The Limbo :-))

    I bet you think the Moon landings were faked too!
