jo jo da. :)

Hvor meget post import arbejde sidder i med?

Jeg gætter lidt på at der må være noget at arbejde med. Lysmaster, træer. Og hvad med hække og den slags?
Det er vel ikke alt der er lige præcist ned i de små og irregulære detaljer i importdatens height field.

Der er lidt rod med søer, men ellers ikke noget. Hække kommer fra data, single træer kommer fra GeoDataStyrelsen's registreringer af træer (ja, det findes der faktisk) og skovområderne får automatisk genereret masser af træer osv. Så intet post import arbejde, intet manuelt arbejde... dog fixer vi en flot kopi af Kronborg, og adder deres kraft-varmeværk, så der kommer strøm i byen.

Vi adder også etager i bygninger og lamper, køleskab mv., ud fra statistisk forbrug i lejligheder, parcelhuse, fabrikker mv., så Helsingør får et realistisk strømforbug som Kraftværket skal levere.
Derefter kan der skiftes tagflader til solceller og man kan måle på hele byen på een gang, hvilken effekt det har. Eller adde havvindmøller osv. Simulation er kodeordet!

:like:

Hvordan er specs egentlig for et view som det der ifht. framerate, drawcalls og tris.
Går ud fra at du kan batche en hel del sammen, når textures stort set kun er farver?

Der er en del batching ja, men vi er klar over at der skal laves dele om, for at kunne trække
så store områder ordentligt, med stor viewlength. BAW har forskellige settings, bla. 'View Length',
og jo længere man kan se ud i horisonten, jo mere skal der tegnes.

Med de erfaringer vi har nu, og med de tech-features vi gerne vil adde inden for de næste 6 måneder,
så kommer der en stor visuel update, under og over the hood. Vi smider noget imposter lign. kode ind
og vertices mv. kommer til at fylde 1/3, og drawcalls kan komme meget længere ned.
Alt ialt bør det hele køre meget lettere og view length kan muligvis blive op til 2 km (se tidligere indlæg).

Mht. framerate kører det iøjeblikket helt fint, når man tilpasser view-length til sit grafikkort.

Mark an area and choose 'Save STL' and you are ready to print to a 3D printer, easy!

New version is out:

Update 31-10-2016 (version 0.666/rev.4182)

Important:
- All users should uninstall and reinstall, to get all the latest features !
so we recommend that you UNINSTALL Build A World, and reinstall it.
Get the installer from: http://www.buildaworld.net/download

New Features:
- 4 new Tutorials
- Menus have been reorganised, and settings have become more detailed.
- Unlimited amount of vegetation, and other detailed blocks (demo https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZbfZuTpFdYU )
- TV block, which can show youtube movies. (demo https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-FnNcnJWeTk )
- Cash Register / Shop block (which connects to nearby containers, so users can buy whats in containers)
- Item Exchange (which connects to nearby containers, so the game can buy items)
- Soil dries over time (demo https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g5axCbGkLWM ) if settings 'Water Evaporation' is set.
- Dry grass will now burn
- Overview map (hit 'O') now has a map overview
- Minimap and overview map are now colored.
- A number of 'Fences' have been added. (new constructions, search for 'fence')
- A new faster Spring block

- An EDU version now exists ( http://edu.buildaworld.net/ )
The EDU version will be launched soon.

Fixes:
- The Renderer now correctly handles nVidia, Radeon and Intel GPU's.
- OpenGL Core Profile 3.3 compliance
- STL 3d printing model export fixed
- Various Intel HD Graphics workarounds

Tech:
- Tons of tech things has changed 'under the hood'
- General FPS is up by 30-100%
- Direct State Access OpenGL used by default with workarounds just for Intel
- Reverse Z-Buffer
- New SIMD optimized raycast system
- The graphics engine changed to a radical fork of Irrlicht 1.8.3
- A number of linear algebra,vector math and scene graph optimizations
- A number of things moved from CPU to GPU using Transform Feedback
- High Performance Animation System and Hardware Skinning for mobs on all GPUs
- Meshes are now instanced and GPU culled for maximum speed performance.
- Client uses less memory.
- Client uses multi-threaded OpenGL for asynchronous buffer streaming
- Server now uses thread for compression (raknet)
- Custom voxelization routines for importing GIS data

Known issues:
- There is some stuttering due to waiting for GPU culling queries
- Quick Select bar does not save.
- currently the visual 3D cache is disabled (untill next update)
- not all settings have effect yet.
- no Tessellation Shaders for Radeon (use CPU tessellation instead)
- Occlusion Culling disabled until a new implementation

Hidden in this release (ready for next)
- a number of plants, for growing food
- a number of teacher functions ( for the edu version)

Fedt! Håber det gik godt. :)
Har hørt at de der Mircosoft godt kan lide spil med kasser man bygger med. ;)

Er EDU blevet jeres forretningsmæssige hovedfokusområde?
