Re: What are you working on?

Indeed, nice way of mixing things up. Some other healing ideas inspired by rpg and fighting games: * Tie the regen amount to armor, eg. 20 armor = generate up to 20 health (relative or absolute). * Have enemies drop health, but a la Q2 inventory items which can be activated on demand, combine that w...

Re: What are you working on?

One thing I think might be cool for Q2 is to add masks to the textures that define the 'metalness' of a pixel. So then you could change some parameters of your reflection model for some cheapish physical based rendering. So no more diffuse reflection for the metals and you could use the existing col...

Re: [Preview]BioCore

Love the textures!
I don't think they need to be more dirty, I'm sure it'll look a lot better with lights.

Re: Unity 5 and Unreal Engine 4 are now free of charge!

Guess blueprints give new meaning to 'spagetti code'.
Seems there's some third party scriping things in the works for UE4.

C# and F#

There's probably more, believe someone was doing Lua also...

Remembers me of this Wolfire post. Seems much more involved though, and no example code :(

Why not use a software Quake engine like Super8 or Engoo?

Re: What are you working on?

As for what I've been working on lately, here's a video showing off the new shadows in Quake2World. These are planar projection shadows with per-pixel attenuation. They're poor-man's shadow volumes :lol: http://youtu.be/GtZLPJkrcs4 Any reason to do them planar? I guess it saves a crapload of fillra...

Re: Q1 BSP tree

Q3 lightstyles are fairly usable, they're simply shaders generated by the compiler. As such, they don't influence the lightgrid and take some perf hit (though should be fine on a modernized renderer, i suppose). http://q3map2.robotrenegade.com/docs/shader_manual/lightstyles.html Q3 bsp and Q1 toolch...

Re: [Storm Engine 2][dev] Phaeton

The pysics are nice, did D3 come with vehicle physics?

About visuals; are you going to give the particle effects the cartoony treatment? It looks pretty ace on the muzzle flash.

Re: Holo lens?

Playing holoquake to much, you'd get these strange automatisms in real life when you suddenly expect a shambler to come around a corner.
You pull out your rocket launcher and drop your groceries.

Looks interesting, very brown, hehe :D
I hope this is like some Quake / Binding of Isaac hybrid.
