Hi. For the last moth I've been secretly working on a small surprise. It's yet another demo showing some possibilities of the game engine. It's a small map with no objectives, but I hope you'll enjoy it.

Don't press escape after the mission starts or you will miss all the fun :)

Lovely! Thanks, man. =-)

It made me smile.

No formulae the text-books know,
Will turn the bullet from your coat,
Or ward the tulwar's

Strike hard who cares—shoot straight who can—

OMG!

Does this demo show a Cubemap \ Interior mapping style effect (well... in this case it would be exterior mapping) ?!?!

Must try this tonight!

Thanks to all :)

Just wondering if

how did you make that custom light/shadow for the floor - that is extremely cool!

I made it in Blender. I imported the models, copied their exact position, created light source in the same place as in DarkRadiant and then baked the shadows and ambient occlusion. Then I placed planes with that baked shadows as decals in the map.

Does this demo show a Cubemap \ Interior mapping style effect (well... in this case it would be exterior mapping) ?!?!

Hm, there are cubemaps but it's nothing new. They're described here: http://wiki.thedarkm...title=Cube_maps

Very cool indeed. I not only enjoyed the effect out the window, but the edges of the glass as well.
