Since SpaceEngineer posted these "old school interface" I also thought of new interface design. Its just made with Photoshop. I tried to make it plain and clearly. What do you think of it?



Though we talked about the interface I'm not sure if its ok if I post it here. If not I will make a new thread.

second-ich, this cannot be implemented now - SE engine have many limitations, main of them is impossibility to have various fonts.

I didn't even noticed it used more than one wacko

Anyway, I like it very much, it's very modern and minimalist. A similar skin for SE would be nice smile

My interface skin contains only one font (Calibri). Or do you mean you can't use anything else than the current one?

You are asking to model rivers. You must know this is impossible task for pure procedural fractal generation. Only erosion post-process may model something river-looking (for steep slopes like volcano it actually must give nice results). Wait for SE 1.0 for this feature.


If it helps:
I have found a paper that explains how to perform proceudural generation of terrains accounting for hydrological processes

By the way, I've encountered a person that is trying to simulate the erosion caused by hydrological processes post-process and is quite awesome how well the terrain gets after the erosion. It could be added for polar ice caps on planets or glaciers (that are easily eroded) or for terrains on planets with corrosive atmospheres and rain.

That video reminds me of this Chrome Experiment, called Craftscape.

Hi all,

I'm dedicated to SE 3D interaction, using twin projector setup and a big silver screen (polarized set, simultaneous L+R projection).

3D setup parameter "stereobase" is static, so no way to find a value good for both planet and galaxy type objects.

Any chance to make it automatically variable when interacting with objects of various size ?

No. This has been discussed earlier. Automatic change of the stereobase will look strange when you trying to zoom between planets or galaxies. And this is not easy to decide the needed value of the stereobase in the code.

A new method of fixing texture tiling on terrain. A set of screenshots for comparison:

1) No fix - tiling is clearly visible.



2) The method used in 0.972 and in older versions. The detail textures are blended with themselves at a larger scale. This hides the repeating pattern, but blurs the surface and look strange sometimes (you have a large rocks blended with a small ones).



3) The new method: detail texture is split into random cells and a random offset to texture coordinates is added to each cell. Transitions between cells are smooth (blended). Contrast is returned back (better than in the method 2), but repeating pattern is still visible in some places.



4) Added random rotation of texture coordinates in each cell. Repeating pattern is completely gone!



The tiling fix method, as long as tiling blend method, can be chosen in the code in the tg_common.glsl shader. Tests on different hardware does not show any impact on the planet generation performance.

The "new method" was the one that you implemented in 0.9.7.1 or... a new one again? smile

Also, I like so much the 4th one! It would be nice to see its job on some other kind of surfaces or distances.

Looks like you're out doing yourself again SpaceEngineer. Fantastic work and I can't wait for the next version.

Implemented support of the Oculus Rift DK2 positional tracknig and the "Direct mode" (SDK-driven rendering). All became very smooth! Direct mode is highly recommended for now!
