So I am taking a class that was titled “Fundamentals of Game Programming.” It is very basic and more focused on graphics and physics. I could probably teach the class. However one of the programming assignments was making a 3D etch a scetch with cubes. So I thought about adding a few things. This is what I have.
Nothing fancy here. No chunk system or VBOs. No shaders. Just batching stuff using GL11. FPS is low do do 90k cubes. The world is made from a program that takes an image and uses it as a height map. Skybox was easy. The mist/cloudy things are done in real time with particles. Took a while to get them billboarded. Flying through them is fun. You can move pen around to create and destroy blocks minecraft style. Hitting keys will change the texture on the block. Will post a source and a playable version when I am done. I am also trying to work on part 3 and 4 of the particle system tutorial but school and life is eating so much time.
Will post later.
