This is going to be a short update. Alpha testing is now complete. I am currently working with AlphaBetaGamer to help provide beta testing for Farkle Friends. As soon as the game is up on their site I will create a new entry informing everyone of how to check it out. If there are issues and I can't get Farkle Friends on AlphaBetaGamer within a reasonable amount of time I will figure out another way to provide open beta testing for anyone who wants to help.

While the beta testing is going on I will be spending some of my time preparing the different store I want to use. Here is a finalized list of where I will be submitting the game to. Right now the goal is to release sometime in September. I'm pulling for the 1st but we will pin down a release date when beta testing is almost complete.

1. Google Play Store

2. Steam

3. GOG

4. itch.io

5. GameJolt

      Hello,
      I am currently drawing an FFT ocean into a texture including Dx, Dy and Dz. As i need the real height at a point for another algorithm, i am passing the points through a vertex shader as following:
      #version 330 core layout (location = 0) in vec3 position; layout (location = 1) in vec2 texCoords; // Displacement and normal map uniform sampler2D displacementMap; uniform mat4 MVPMatrix; uniform int N; uniform vec2 gridLowerLeftCorner; out float displacedHeight; void main() { // Displace the original position by the amount in the texture vec3 displacedVertex = texture(displacementMap, texCoords).xyz + position; // Scale vertex to the 0 -> 1 range vec2 waterCellIndices = vec2((displacedVertex.x - gridLowerLeftCorner.x)/N, (displacedVertex.z - gridLowerLeftCorner.y)/N); // scale it to -1 -> 1 waterCellIndices = (waterCellIndices * 2.0) - 1.0; displacedHeight = displacedVertex.y; gl_Position = vec4(waterCellIndices, 0, 1); } This works correctly (it writes the correct height at a given point). The issue is that some points due to the Dx and Dz displacement will get outside the clip space. This points should instead wrap around as the ocean is a collection of tiles.
      As you can see in the attached file the edges fit together perfectly inside white square if they would wrap around (this is the clip space dimensions from RenderDoc).
      Is there any way i could wrap around this texture (in reality wrap around the clip space positions) so it stays all inside the viewport correctly?
      I tried to wrap around in the vertex shader by checking the boundaries and wrapping around but it doesnt work when a triangle has a least one vertice inside of the viewport and others outside.
       
      Many thanks,
      André

      Reallusion’s CC3 completes the 3D game character pipeline for game developers. Access a highly optimized game character base for mobile, AR and VR developers then integrate InstaLOD’s model and material optimization technologies to generate game-ready characters that are animatable on-the-fly with multiple LOD outputs. 
      CC3 is introducing a new Game Character Base with its topology optimized for Mobile, Game, AR/VR developers. The 10K polygon base also answers the call for displaying massive amount of NPCs or Citizens with true-to-life body and facial animation without serious performance drop in real-time render.
      Optimized Character for Game/AR/VR/Mobile
      ●    Game Base Characters can be derived from any Standard CC Character.
      ●    Retain visual quality after mesh simplification.
      ●    Compatible with CC Morphs, Skin Presets, and Outfit System.
      Simplified Bone Structure for Facial and Body Animation
      ●    CC bones optimized identically for game engine compatibility.
      ●    Fully-rigged 10K polygon characters with detailed facial and body performance.
      ●    Compatible with iClone character animation tools and mocap system.
      ●    Access to full set of Facial Morphs for lip sync and emotional expression.
      InstaLOD inside Character Creator 3 fulfills the complete game character pipeline on polygon reduction, material merge, texture baking, remeshing and LOD generation.  These necessary elements of game design are able to be completed for every character in one seamless process. After designing with character morphs, clothing, accessories and materials the InstaLOD embedded features finalize the gamification for each character and produce up to 5 levels of detail to load into Unity or Unreal game engines.
      Pricing and Availability:  
      Character Creator 3 Pipeline is available directly from Reallusion or authorized Resellers. It is available for Windows operating systems only. For more information about price and system requirements, please visit https://www.reallusion.com/store/
