Voxels! Unlike my old Xna application, this one's code is way more beautiful to the eye. Zero "switch" or "if and else" for cube faces, as I did with my cubic planet faces.

My only problem with voxels is that it's a 3D grid. A 3D grid take a lot longer to compute than six 2D grids.
250 * 6 = 1500 quads to compute and draw.
2503 = 15,625,000 voxels to compute and maybe draw.

As I use more and more complex objects to abstract the computation and the drawing part, the code slows.

Following this entry, I'll make another one but with two videos:
1) Spherical planet made of voxels
2) Cubic planet made of voxels

What did you use to make this?


Eclipse Mars, Java 8, jMonkey Engine 3. By the way, Eclipse Neon just got released! :D
