Electronic Meteor > SeedWorld (voxel world engine) update 2

Posted 15 December 2014

One week later into my voxel engine, which I now call the SeedWorld engine, I am still facing a lot of technical issues but still made a lot of progress. I finally have a octave noise function that I am very satisfied with, in creating those very believable rolling hills you see a lot in procedural landscapes. Here is the breakdown of the current technica...

Electronic Meteor > Jumping into the voxel world

Posted 18 November 2014

What's going on everyone! I haven't touched this journal (or this website) for over a year. I also had a blog that I stopped updating for just as long. For those followers that still remember me, you might be wondering what has happened?

Well, during the time here when I was game coding and taking about coding, I was working freelance as a web developer...
