Made a pretty ugly vehicle, but the looks don't really matter that much:

Now I only have to work on the lighting. I guess I'm gonna need a custom skybox to set the lighting up the way I want.

I love those "cages" on the lights. :heart:
(or are they called grates, I don't know)

They are official called cage lights. I guess they don't want the light to escape. :rly:

oui, dey be caged lights. Only reason the cage is on them is so something doesn't swing / hit into it and smash the glass so they're mostly used in industrial applications. Probably wouldn't be used on the almost street lighting you've got going on but it fits the aesthetic so well so w/e

Aesthetics > Logic. Aka. Why are there lights in the vents? Because shut your mouth.

so much common sense here... cars often have grating in front of lights as well to protect them from being smashed
Posted 6 months ago2017-12-21 08:15:47 UTC Post #338452
I cannot say I see many cars with grating at all to be honest. Maybe the occasional farm vehicle, which makes sense.

For some reason, I just love torturing this engine sometimes. >:3

This had to be taken in D3D, but that's because my Windows 7 x64 drivers for Intel GMA X3100 Mobile don't work well with HL in OpenGL. They work just fine on Windows XP, though. :)

I'm back at mapping in J.A.C.K., after 3 months of being left in the pitch black. I wonder if my mapping skills have decreased.

Very nice, but if that's considered torture then mappers are doing pretty unspeakable things to Goldsource these days. There are bound to be some laws being broken somewhere...

Great job @Windawz Looks like you use SketchUp? Lol because I knew white color since 1st screenshot.

"Looks like you use SketchUp?"
Nope, used nothing but Jackhammer and cs_747.wad. Limiting oneself to 5-7 textures to work with gives awesome results.

What I meant by "torturing" was simply pushing the engine to its limits. I like doing that until I actually hit the limits. :/

I don't think how one could torture an engine in the most literal way possible. In any case, it's the hardware that gets tortured. :lol:

it is the engine and not the hardware... there isnt much difference you run it on a modern or an ancient pc
Posted 5 months ago2017-12-31 18:37:50 UTC Post #338538
Uh, there is at least some difference. A GTX 1080 will run any map far better than my Intel GMA X3100 Mobile. :P

@Admer : the difference is very minor between old and modern hardware.

Remember that in old games, most of the work is done by the CPU itself. When the video game industry started to introduce the so-called "shaders", that's when the GPU started to matter because the shaders are built and handled by your GPU, leaving more space for your CPU to "take a breath" or do something else.

@Bruce and @Shepard: You mean OpenGL Embedded System?

GL.UseProgram() and GL.Shader()

I have to learn more details. But I am busy for GL.UseProgram() and Gl.Shader()....
Posted 5 months ago2018-01-01 14:06:35 UTC Post #338542
Yes, shaders rely on what is referred to as shader programs, which are comprised out of multiple shaders (vertex, fragment, compute shaders to name a few examples).
Overall it's called retained mode, as opposed to immediate mode. (retain state from before, like model data as opposed to uploading it every frame).

Shaders can be used on embedded systems (OpenGL ES), but it's not exclusive to that, you can use it anywhere that the OS provides support for it, usually through drivers provided by GPU manufacturers.
Posted 5 months ago2018-01-01 14:51:23 UTC Post #338543
@Shepard
I still believe that a GPU and its drivers can mean a difference of 20 to 50fps, or more, in a game like Half-Life. :3
I'll have to make a comparison one day to see it for myself.

That's when the GPU started to matter because the shaders are built and handled by your GPU, leaving more space for your CPU to "take a breath" or do something else.
And then they thought, "Look at all this breathing the CPU is doing when it should be handling PHYSICS! Though admittedly GPUs can handle that as well, if you have one spare. :P

I still have my Ageia PhysX card somewhere in my storage that I specifically bought for use with Source engine games. I don't have that card in use anymore because of the reason you mentioned above. :)

Made some tweaks to the lighting in Photoshop.
Posted 5 months ago2018-01-04 18:54:15 UTC Post #338564
Looks intriguing, though maybe a little bit too dark for the amount of light getting through those windows - they're bright as if a nuke hit outside, while it only illuminates a small part of the hallway (this may be due to lowest brightness settings of my screen at all times), but still it looks great.
Posted 5 months ago2018-01-04 19:07:36 UTC Post #338565
Sadly, you seem to be one of only two persons who pointed this out. I will consider this if I ever make something like that again. Thank you.
Posted 5 months ago2018-01-04 20:10:15 UTC Post #338566
I think it might be due to brightness setting of my screen. I always keep it at the lowest level, just because I prefer lower brightness levels. I'm used to it and even work on my maps like that.

I was kind of inspired by Trackmania Forever. :glad: (and Nadeo is a French video game company, if I remember well)
Besides, Slade told me to make a stadium around the playable area, so I had to make something.

Yep, Nadeo is french but it's now a sub-company of Ubisoft.

I don't know if TM:N/TM:NF/TM:U(F)/TM2:S are inspired by a french stadium tho.
