In Topic: Tile Map Editor - Individual Tile editing

*Obligatory don't do it yourself unless you really have to reply!*


Before you delve into this, have you looked at Tiled (http://www.mapeditor.org/)? It's very powerful and would easily create these sorts of maps with the right tile-set.

In Topic: Terrain tesselation and collision

As mentioned previously, these things are indeed separate. I have also been working on the problem.

What I do is keep the mesh data in very very small patches. I can tessellate these patches on the GPU

for more visual detail, or turn them into a grid to pipe to the physics system. It works pretty well.

In Topic: What is a day like in the life of a programmer?

I often describe my day simply as such:


40% research/reading

40% conversation

20% coding

In Topic: SFML 2.1

I've had no issues thusly with any of the modules. I would avoid their threading stuff now though, since c++11 threads are pretty good.

In Topic: Where do you get the collada sdk from ?

DAE is XML, there's a schema and a specification... beyond that it's pretty much up to you. The last time I went to use DAE directly, I ended up reading it myself. I would personally recommend Assimp.
