So hello and welcome back!

We did a lot last week. I did not post so much as I a was at a martial arts training camp which was really cool.

Parallax Occlusion Mapping

It is now fully integrated in the engine. This means all textures where it makes sense have now a height map which allows the activation of the parallax occlusion mapping:

Look how nicely the texture is aligned! This wasn't the case in the last blog!

And we also optimized the algorithm. It is now up to two times faster than the old one. So it is now possible to use the algorithm also on the voxels. Look at the wood of tree and the stone:

And we also started with the development of a HDR rendering pipeline.

Restart Engine

Especially for the Mac version we want to make it possible that the engine can reset itself without restarting the game. This is for example important if you want to change the screen resolution in-game!

Configuration Dialog

The configuration dialog works now completely. We also added the option to change the controls and the screen resolution:

Model Loading

The model loader is now fully working. We had problems when loading animation. This has now been resolved. And we also checked out MakeHuman. Perhaps we will use this software to create better hands and NPCs.

And I myself made a model for the game:

Linux and Mac

And we plan to publish a linux and a mac version with the release of the next unstable version.

I found that you can actually smelt 2 blocks (one on top of the other) with the wood, coal can be used which burns longer too.

Enjoying the game but how to drop stuff when carry weight too high?

Also a suggestion for reducing micromanagement of the crafting. Is it possible to make a smart crafting systems that allows you to drill down and back up again.
For example - you need nails and planks and iron for a chest (or similar). So instead of finding the scrolling back to the nails and then crafting and then back again, maybe you could press the picture/word nails and it opens a sub crafting menu. This could maybe drill down several levels. Would make the game a lot more fun without ruining the realism.

If you are carrying to much weight simply place material into world. Or you can craft something. This will also reduce weight.

And I will make a drop / delete button and reduce the micromanagement!

I was stuck underground trying to dig out and found it hard to off faster that I dug out... need a delete button Glad to see you will put one in.

Also a way to separate out only specific number of the total would be great.
