Blue stain > Effects

Posted 16 May 2016

The work on the effects took longer than I thought but the result is not far from what I was expecting. It is now possible to create things like smoke trails, explosions and maybe other effects that can be achieved with the system. They can be associated to objects as active effects, that is while the object's energy is above 0, or they can be asso...

Blue stain > Let's rock

Posted 06 March 2016

I don't have a lot to show this time. I fixed a few things and added others. Here is the list in no particular order:

- Added guided m...

Blue stain > Lights and shadows

Posted 09 December 2015

The lights are now working. It is possible to have point lights and directional lights. I also added shadows using a simple shadow map. For now, only one directional light can have shadows. I will try to improve this.
In the new video, I have one directional light casting the shadows and two point lights (yellow and blue) are attached to the ships....
