Arg. So I decided to derail myself slightly (as usual) and do some polish to the Screen Space Effects system which works in conjunction with the freshly integrated Engine Flares, and found that they were – upon occasion – turning purple…… Read More »
Well, perhaps not all of them 😉 While tinkering with the View Vessel mode (so I can check markup, shaders, etc and take purdy pictures in the future), I decided to tweak it a little to load up a whole… Read More »
I’ve finally gotten around to integrating the Physically Based Rendering into Dominium, along with the long parked Engine Flare system! Sadly, both suffer from ‘programmer art’ at the moment, but I’m happy it’s all now plumbed in and working, ready… Read More »
Yeh, not so sure. Although the title is contextual to the plot, I have reservations so it’ll change before final 🙂 I’ve dedicated the entire ‘week’ to the book, tweaking various parts and writing new narrative – adding roughly 6,000… Read More »
As Dominium’s Flight Mechanics journey continues, I’m revelling in the nostalgia of all that school math/mechanics/physics from so long ago. Now I have Newton’s Second Law(F=ma) in the code armoury, and all the various tunable ‘bits’ which affect movement and… Read More »
The first phase of development on the Flight Mechanics is now complete, and I have to say, I’m pretty chuffed with the results! Let me begin by saying that this doesn’t mean ‘Flight Mechanics’ is completed and now final. I’ve… Read More »
Now, this may be a dangerous combination… Newtonian and Non-newtonian flight models? In the same game? Well, if I get it wrong… yes, very dangerous! It could be horrifically unfair, leaving Newtonian vessels at the mercy of far more manoueverable… Read More »
Hi folks, and a return back to Dom Dev for those tired of the flood of book updates! To avoid getting dragged into the mire with bug-fixing the vessel mount code (which is not really a priority at the moment),… Read More »
Yes, it’s been a long time coming, but after almost a year I’ve finally jumped through all the hoops, signed all the forms, ticked all the boxes, to get Insurmountable Odds onto the Apple iBooks Store! Available now!
I’ve been back visiting the unpleasant Bugland this past week or so, and also tinkering with some visual effects; velocity markers and course tunnels. Velocity Markers have two tiers; HUD markers which are projected by the ship-board systems, and ‘real’… Read More »
