My bad, I meant just looking at a single in game asset, not a full scene. Imaging snapshot a vehicle and then photoshop its context out and you just a model that nobody will know where if its a re-used asset or not.
Yea you should have went to DigiPen . You can fail as much as you want as long as your gpa stays above 2.5. I also failed a couple math classes of which I was so close to failing calculus. Its just a boring math that I have to this day never used in any game work I have done. Thats pathetic that Full Sail does that though. If your students take a class 3 times then they should know the material better the 3rd time. I hope they lose money in that process.
I also had the dilemma of missing home. My 2nd of 4 years I started to get partially depressed about being there and questioning if I would have done just as good going to a state college.
If money and distance is not an issue, try to transfer to digipen . Realistically though, you could go to state college and just learn extra shit from books. I learned a lot of stuff from random "Game xxxxx" books out there. To be completely honest, the best thing to get into any company anyway, is have a degree and have a fully completed game project. Doesn't even have to be the best.
How many games will be modern combat fps games with the same trees, same vehicles, weapons, soldiers? I'm assuming that publishers don't do this because I have never read otherwise, but why don't they share assets across game studios that they own or give money to, or why don't game studios simply share assets with each other. I mean GTA basically made every single car you could want. Any game that needs a car, just share the assets from GTA etc. Obviously as time goes on you build newer higher poly stuff, but how many times have we seen a Russian Hind helicopter: of just the few games I play: MW series, Battlefield series, Uncharted, World in Conflict, (maybe medal of honor).
Is there a reason NOT to do this? I mean everyone is bitching about costs to develop games and timelines but it seems so stupid to not have a developer portal even if its not free but just to re-sell your assets.
I was listening to the radio and there are a few issues I heard.
1.) African was not a race they put on birth certificates at the time. 2.) He went to school in Indonesia and there, you apparently have to be a citizen and can't be a dual citizen to enroll in school. 3.) I dont know where to find the document they released but the version I saw, all the letters had white borders (meaning they did a photoshop job and did not remove all the white to be alpha. So all the letters have white borders.
4.) Donald Trump, the man behind this, is a false republican who we all know gave tons of money to dems. So he is trying to spin the vote so Obama wins. Trump has never been a republican. And now Obama releases this to look like a good guy, when he should look like a bad guy for hiding it so long. .... oh wait because now he can use it for running again. http://www.wnd.com/index.php?pageId=72656
I was reading up on how some nuclear reactors work etc, but does anyone know/understand why the thing is still hot after 5 days? I mean wouldn't it auto shut off so that the fuel stops reacting or is the problem that they couldn't shut it off? If its not being fueled to burn, I dont see how it could still be burning for this long even after pouring water and whatever else they have done.

In ortho mode your units are exactly how much you can see. So if you world is 300x300 units, and your sun is looking from top down, you ortho would be -150 150, -150, 150, with your light position at 0,0,0.
If your sun is not directly down, then you have to figure out exactly how much you can see because that 300x300 is rotated from the lights point of view, but it will be very close to 300x300 still.
