Re: 3D Models Animation Preset

gee.. I don't think blender is that bad for animation. It's more capable than I am at using it, with sculpting and mesh painting, etc. But people should use the tools they are most comfortable with. I just question the use of a nearly 15 yr old format when more modern formats are available; fragmoti...

Re: 3D Models Animation Preset

in the RPG game, the player model is set with cubescript ( unless I'm totally mistaken, which has happened before ) so, you'll need to do some scripting at least unless you go the simple route and just rename files to replace a model... but even then, you'll need to do some simple cubescript to carr...

workstation broke ^#$%$#^%!!!!!

my venerable (old!) IBM workstation finally gave up the ghost. I was planning to replace it anyways, but now I'll have to wait until I get back from Brisbane. If money is good when I get back, I'm going to grab a used HP xw9400 off ebay. hi-perf stuff from an old machine ( okay, not as hi-perf as a ...

sunlight

I found a couple of interesting things while poking around the src. sunlight R B G to set the color of the sunlight, much like settling the color of the skylight. sunlightscale 0, 1, 16 is a multiplier of the color values...

Re: Learn recipe

Its a flag, right? I would think that, 'true' means the recipe is known, but a 'false' means it is unknown

Grass variables

I thought I'd get back into the game by taking a good look at grass. There are several variables which affect the way grass looks in the game and some of these variables can help with frame-rate issues; the fewer alpha planes the game has to render, the faster it can go and the higher the frame-rate...

Re: Hero model Project / Workflow Design

I've done a couple of minor things, but I could give it a shot.
I use blender and should be able to import .3ds models

IQM is suppose to be better than md5, and its widely supported in different games, I think.

Re: Trying to decide which Engine to use.. a little help?

realmcrafter appears to be windows only
cross-platform is always nicer imho

another engine is cafu
