Source Homepage... ~630kb of (original!) procedural c source code, in a visual studio 6.0 project. The engine media is also included, mainly in the form of .dds (direct draw surface) textures.
quote:
4D TERRAIN ENGINE A First Person Perspective 4D DirectX 9.0 landscape generation, solidifying, and rendering engine. All landcsapes are algorithmically generated at runtime. More than 4,000,000,000 different landscapes are identified by ID and object variance. Explosion Core, Shockwave, Smoke and Particles are all available. 2 macro scene types are available, Alpine Summer and Alpine Winter. At present, the engine is undergoing optimization.
I would be probably be interested in setting up some kind of collaborative project around the engine; control and responsibility for a single source file given to each collaborator Contact the owner via the email address on the webpage.

To Ademan555... Good luck. The code is not altogether tidy, but it should be fairly easy to read.

To Hedos... I cannot compile the .exe, I have lost my MSVC install during an upgrade. If anyone _could_ compile it, I would gladly include it with the download.

To oliii... A screensaver has been one of my ideas, I reconsidered though, mainly because of the work of http://grid.org (I think all unused computer time should be given to this cause). It could possibly be programmed as a media player visualisation though.

game_engine_2.zip is available for download from the link above^


The demo now works and compiles correctly.

The compiled .exe is also now included (although my compiler did not have the service pack installed(?)).
