Ouch. There goes anything without a programmable shader. Well, to be honest... the GeForce 3 was the first card to support programmable shading, and it was released in 2001. Even without a GF3-level card (Intel Integrated, I'm looking at you...), vertex shaders can be transparently run on the CPU, ...

Yeah, SimTower started as an elevator simulator. The guy behind it, Yoot Saito, has actually released a sequel, which I believe is available somewhere on the web (look for 'Yoot Tower'). As far as scripting languages go: Don't forget that EVE uses stackless Python rather than regular Python, and als...

I'm not a graphics programmer, but here's a potentially workable scheme. It probably has a name in the literature. Yeah, it sounds like you're describing impostors. Link. Ouch.

Re: It's all in your head, Part 8

You can avoid a certain amount of popping by interpolating between LOD meshes - i.e. slide vertices until they're in line with their neighbours before removing them, using a vertex shader - but for this kind of system I'd probably abandon 3D rendering of distant buildings altogether and see about us...

She stops calling you "Lucy" and starts calling you "Shithead." Good going, Shithead.

I wish I had the time and motivation to get back into Uplink source code hackery.

I'd imagine the chances depend on how good at finding bugs you are.

By the way, where'd you get those business cards made? One of my colleages, Drew Sikora, got one from Mark and everyone he shows it to is highly impressed. I want one :D Chris DeLay gave me one, having met a die-hard American Introversion fanboy for the first time. They were asking me if I played U...

Congrats guys. Great speeches. "We didn't want any publishers fucking with our game..." stunned silence and round of applause from audience :D (but no love for the beta testers? :P ;)) By the way, where'd you get those business cards made? One of my colleages, Drew Sikora, got one from Mar...

It would be infinitely more worth people's time to write plugins for existing modelling packages - Wings3D, Blender, Milkshape3D, etc.

BTW, you'll have to think of a better name - Introversion own the name 'Darwinia' so you won't be able to use it without their permission.

WRT the cross platform element... each platform has dynamic link libraries in one form or another. Provided the API exposed to a DLL was complete enough, there'd be no need to write any platform-specific code; the only platform-specific thing would be building the library, and it ought not be too ha...
