A Practical Guide to Indie Game Marketing, by Joel Dreskin Marketing is an essential but too frequently overlooked or minimized component of the release plan for indie games. A Practical Guide to Indie Game Marketing provides you with the tools needed to build visibility and sell your indie games. With special focus on those developers with small budgets and limited staff and resources, this book is packed with tangible recommendations and techniques that you can put to use immediately.

The book presents architectural techniques and theories for level designers to use in their own work.

Rendering model, getting seams between each mesh

5 posts in this topic

  • I made a class to create models off of basic shapes.
  • Each block in this image is exactly 1 unit wide and 1 unit apart from each other

 

What could be the cause of all the seams I'm getting in this image?

 

Note: I'm not doing any special rendering techniques, not even depth sorting.

It could be z fighting, try seperating them just a bit more, or go very close to them and see if they are 'inside' eachother by enabling wireframe.

everything seems fine in wireframe mode, and I tried moving them apart from each other a tiny bit by adding FLT_EPSILON and then by .00001f and neither of them worked. Any other ideas?

Move your camera's far-clip plane closer maybe that will work. What is your far-clip plane currently set to?

It's .001 right now. Could it just simply be that I'm not doing any depth sorting? Now that I think about it that would actually make sense lol.

 

 

EDIT:

 

That was the problem, as soon as I set up depth sorting everything just turned out perfectly fine. Thanks for your time!

zNear of 0.001 is pretty close. You'll be loosing most of your z-buffer accuracy in the range between 0.001 and 0.01 (or something like that).

 

Cheers!

 

[edit] definetely a z-buffering problem
