Re: Real-Time Skybox?

Don't know if that may help but i made (actually a modified fx composer shader) a sky shader once for the CgARB1 renderer, the shader seemed to work great but i did not found how to bind it with Cafu correctly, it is flickering along with many visual bugs and this flickering depend on the player pos...

Re: Creating many static models on terrain

With "the code", are you referring to CaWE (the map editor) or to Cafu (the engine)? Do I understand you right that you want to place static models programmatically? (Something like a spraycan tool comes to mind, that "sprays" static detail models...) I was referring to Cafu, what i want to do prec...

Creating many static models on terrain

Hello, i am looking at creating many static models on a terrain (grass, trees, rocks) however i don't know where to start. How can i get a specific terrain in the map from the code? This is mainly to access the method GetHeightData so i can place models based on height data. How do i create a static...

Re: Simple sphere

I might just modify the shader then, seem not too complex to do.

The shader is based on this paper which assume a sky dome:

EDIT: Err, actually harder than i thought. :roll:

Simple sphere

Hello, i implemented a sky shader in Cafu however it need to be applied onto a sphere, i tried to make one using CaWe sphere brush but got the error "Stopped by leak", tried bezier patch and it work but the sky look bad (due to the shape), i thought i could use a model but it seem a bit overkill... ...

Re: Custom shaders

I want to make some custom shaders however it seem that i need to transcribe the shader for all renderers?

How can i force a renderer? Also, how to get from the code that set up a shader a camera/light position defined for example in CaWe?

Re: Terrain size

Is it possible to increase CaWe world size? I saw that line in one of the Deathmatch lua config: -- Note: If this gets any bigger than 65536, CaWE needs revision, especially cmap brush loading (starting digging from LoadSave_cmap.cpp)! Mapsize={ -65536, 65536 } So the note seem to imply it will lead...

Re: Terrain size

Thank you, the quality problem was caused by either the compression or the automatic scaling (noScaleDown), i used both for the terrain and the skybox and it look much better now! :) http://www.hapshack.com/images/73gqU.jpg With a big world you'll want several LoDs for the props, small things can di...

Re: Terrain size

It handle good http://www.hapshack.com/images/sNAG8.jpg The texture look somehow blurry, how can the texture quality be increased? The terrain use a 2048x2048 high quality texture right now which is generated with the heightmap, maybe i should split the terrain in chunks like you said to get better ...

Re: Terrain size

Well, got it working by reducing it to 2km*2km, it is actually sufficient :), seem it was possible to go to 4km*4km though but maybe the terrain have too many features, when it crashed there was a huge numbers of polygons on the edge of the map crater.

Terrain size

Hello, i am making a multiplayer simulation game set on Mars, the game world is large but for the moment i stick to a 4096m*4096m map which is enough for the first phase, it seem Cafu can achieve this relatively easily. So i created a 2049*2049 heightmap in GeoControl 2, exported it as .ter file, ad...
