Never fails

It never fails. I post a screenshot, then under an hour later I do something that makes it look completely different(modulative detail texturing on the terrain and a better grass blade texture). Ugh.

In other news, the other day I played with XNA. I made a few components, kinda got a feel for it. I can sum it up in one word, "Fuckawesome." That is all.

EDIT: By Programmer16 request:



I don't know if this image shows it, but detail texturing(and using ogre's texture scale option at a lower scale) makes for much less blur. Ugh, I should have taken an image with the better grass in it =P.

EDIT2:



-Your friendly neighborhood hahahahahaha

It's amazing how you can take impressive technology, feed it shitty data, and end up with shitty results. You seem to have some pretty nice algorithms on the backend, but your models and textures just fuck it all up.

Remind me to stamp placeholder art in red, 200 point text at the top of the page.

**Edit**: Ignore this angry post and just read what EDI said above, speaking of which I posted this post first, and EDI's got put ABOVE mine... odd.

And what about you sir? Surely you must be working on somthing spectacular if you've got the gall to come here and insult somone who has the patients to post his WIP shots.

You would do well to make your encouragement easier to observe, perhaps next time leave out the profanity.

Don't feel bad, my self-made textures are even uglier, and most of my good ones are stolen from the public-domain Golgotha pack.

At this moment I am busy studying procedural texture generation so I have someone to blame other than myself. [grin]

You should probably look into the Golgotha texture pack: it's about 60MB but has lots of good stuff. I can't make heads or tails of the code (although I'd like to lift their lisp scripting engine from Abuse). I wish I could find it on the web, though I know I have it in my backups somewhere.

I think the terrain engine looks great though. How does your LoD work? I had heard a lot about ROAM...

What we all really need are firm-breasted artistic girlfriends who both enjoy having dirty dirty hot sex all the time and making top-notch high quality artwork for our various ventures. And some more hot sex. And some artwork depicting said hot sex...

Well, Ogre's TSM is a direct copy of one of freenode or gamesautra's geomipmapping papers. I was working on my own terrain plugin for Ogre for a short time, but it fell far short of what TSM could already do =(.

What he is working on is in every way more spectacular than what I'm working on, from a technological level. However, his is being fed textures that I honestly have to say are poor, and he ends up with screenies that look like something from the pre-Q3 era. If he took his technology and had nice data to put into it, it would look much better than Q3, if he has accurately described his technology to me.
As for why I phrased what I said the way I did, it was because Deranged and I have known each other for a while and we've never had to walk on eggshells when talking about each others' projects.
