Random video of the day...

Well, there are actually quite interesting things happening with nVidia physX. Have a look at all the particle effects and the dynamic groundsnow in Batman Arkham Origins. Another great example is the first (!) Bioshock. Ok, no real-time simulation, but still!! There is still the question, however, whether you actually NEED that precise realtime physics calculations. I know I don't!

I was playing TDM the other day and I threw a body in the water. I do that frequently. I can imagine a day in gaming where dragging an object around in the water will cause a displacement and make the water swish around.... no pre-computed animations/shaders, no clipping problems, pure physics calculations!

 

EDIT: That video is pretty awesome. Actually ragdoll physics in general are still pretty impressive, even those in TDM. Its so weird when I play older games like Urban Terror. Every time I die, I see the same two animations... lol

Is there anybody out there who DIDN'T have this idea when they were little? I certainly did!

 

Still... Using it to burn out LEDs is pretty lame. I think it would be better as an SSD sanitizer or CD sanitizer.

That arc is crying out to be hooked to a vandergraff generator or some other kind of voltage multiplier, awesome.

 

Below we have quite an awesome video, but then when you have an advertising budget bigger than the GDP of iceland....

Found this perusing the DayZ forums... looks interesting.

Looks pretty cool. I imagined a game like this but set on a living alien planet, and heavier on the basic survival part early on. Then you would really not know what to expect.

What do you see when you turn out the light? I can't tell you but I know that it's mine.

I dunno how this presents itself to you, but for me it seems like an ordinary day at the academia.

 

 

Some kind of (collaborative) research going on, the professori didn't supervise properly, there is strong symbolism of discontinuity (the reaper), and it ends with a lecture by some international high-level scientist, where the local professor kneels in the before the authority of the other.

 

Worth to watch, even with the music only.

I always loved the music in this game, ever since I was a kid... and those are the best remixes I've ever heard.

Also, I swear that lady talking later in the video is the person who played the role of the female scientist in Penumbra Black Plague! It sounds JUST like her!

      If you find the new Beatles song "Now and Then", which was created with the help of AI, totally boring, then you should better play the mission of the same name by our esteemed mission maker friend joebarnin, because the latter is actually a creative milestone!

      Idea: Thief 3 style missions.
      One of the great features of Thief 3 are missions defided in small segments with loading screens when you move from segment to segment. We all miss those right? I was thinking of mapping only horizontal, so not stacked. When you go up or down (stairs or elevator), you get a 20 seconds fake loading screen where you can play a minigame (The Builder's Blocks?). After that you get teleported to a different area that seems to be on top of the first, but actually isn't in the map file. It's much easier mapping, because you can see everything in one glance from above. This could also give more freedom building, because it doesn't have to fit. Everything is predictable because guards don't move to different sections.
      This could be used for the Thief 3 contest possibly..

      Just found out by accident how to change the tittle of a topic you made. You long-click (2 seconds) on a topic tittle, then you get an edit dialog to change the topic title.
      The other way I know of is to edit the first post.

      I always find it kind of strange that in DR you can't apply spawnargs on specific brushes (I think), but you can apply textures. But those are not listed as spawnargs, so they're difficult to see except if you select the brush and go into the Surface inspector.
      Wouldn't it be easier if DR would list textures for every seperate brush in the entity view?
