    would totally want to see more pictures, both zoomed in and out! looks really intressting.
  2. Hello! I have been working on a Scifi RTS for some time and have come a long way with the coding and such. I am trying to put 10-20h a week into the game and it seems to been working out good so far. previously i have worked on multiple AAA titles in the video game industry and as well as some indiegames but decided to start making my own indiegames. Problem is that i suck at making art. =) So i am looking for someone who wants to help out to make the game look greate by creating 2d art. It mainly consist of isometric art but there are some ui elements and regular 2d perspective aswell. Prefebly you should live near the nordic regions and also be able to put in some hours weekly to the project. If you are intressted pm me and i will tell you more indetail stuff about the game and the idea. hope to hear from all you crazy good people.

    Need advice on Graphics Programming

    You can just explore yourself with graphics programming. To become a game developer you don't need some sort of diploma or degree, most that matter is your passion and hard work. I did manage to work as a graphics programmer on bigger games and I do not have any sort of flashy degree. just hard work and passion! I made it by doing my own graphics engine and then just doing more. trying new shaders, new cool techniques and what not. that shows a lot of passion and dedication for what you are doing. And for DX vs GL, I would say dx. it's easier, fewer driver bugs and generally a bit more tools for it that work really well ( due to ms paying a lot of money for the development ). ( I assume the internet is gonna break for that statement )

    F.O.B: Forward Operating Base

    Looks solid. Did not try it tough. What engine are you using? will there be Multiplayer? War aint nothing without your friends Edit : I see now you are using Unity so never mind the question about the engine.
  5. Your child "window" will have a handle, you need to create your d3d device with the correct handle. thats litteraly all thats needed. for resizing, you need to handle the windows messages for resizing. if i remember correctly its something like WM_SIZE or so. at that point you could delete your old d3d device, and recreate it. easier would even be to just resize your framebuffers and all the rendertargets needed. thees two things might sound like a hardthing to do, but they are infact pretty simple if you keep your code simple. good luck!
  6. Every game that I've worked on has had at least onr graphics programmer attached to it, often one on the game side and one of the engine side of things too -- regardless of whether it was in-house or off-the-shelf. Even studios using off-the-shelf engines have to extend/modify them to suit their game. I haven't worked on two games with the same lighting/shading pipelines... or even then, most games have some kind of game-specific special effects or materials, etc.   Pretty much sums it up for me to. i get loads of emails every week or month about graphics programmers here and there. a reminder is that graphics programmers does not only do "triangle math" there is a ton of things to do, vegetation system, tree rendering, clouds, particles, optimization, postprocessing and much more. the graphics area is broad, really broad. and it´s one of the things companies does look for, it´s hard to comeby and as Hodgman said, it´s pretty decent money. im not excellent at math either, but you will get the hang of it. the word typical nonesens of ûber math skills are faulty, you just need to think in the right terms. and most people find it complex and intimidting, thus the "uber skills". If you want to be a graphics programmer, just go for it and fuck what the rest say. with enough passion and drive you will succeed.
