Thanks!

The demo is sort of unstable I'm too tired to fixe (it's a new bug)... it's stable enough to check out the paging system and the graphics for a bit.

PolyVox rules!

Very nice! I knew this was coming as I follow your blog, but it's great to finally see an executable as well as images/videos. It ran well on my two year old PC, though I did experience a couple of crashes. The lighting is really nice (though perhaps too much bloom?) and it's fun throwing around the point lights at night.

Maybe you could add a couple of screenshots to this thread? And If you don't mind, I think I'll split it off into it's own 'showcase' forum as I've been meaning to create one of those for a while.

Once again, great work!

Yeah go ahead and move it to the appropriate place and I will upload a couple of screen shots later.

I see there are config files for linux, but seemingly no executable ;)
Are there plans to build pz for linux? or should I check whether my windows still boots?

Sorry linux build hasn't been updated in months. The obstacle / problem with keeping the linux built up-to-date is all my shaders are in HLSL now due to my shaders having to coexist with shaders I use which are also in HLSL. So I haven't found the time to update these shaders to GLSL. I can't do Cg because I'm one of those people with an ATI card and Linux (mind you having used nothing but Nvidia cards for years).

XD I perfectly understand your point... I have not even once attempted to compile my game under windows...
I've copied it on my windows partition... I'll try to have a look at it soon. Your screenshots look really great. I gotta try that out.

Hey Beyzend, you showcased this on the Ogre3d forum too right? Your name was different but I recognize your implementation. Nicely done.

I notice you mentioned taking this in different and new directions. Does this mean you are going to move away from a 'craft' style terrain system and look into other sorts of procedural geometry? Or am I totally off base here.....

What I meant was with respect to settings and gameplay I want to go in another direction that minecraft, but still want to keep the cubic nature of the world--cubic in addition to slopes perhaps. Right now we're still designing the game so not sure what it means exactly. No doubt I am and was very much inspired by Minecraft. Well, for example we've decide to scale our world to approximately 3 units (cubes) equals to one character, so around 3 units per 1.9 meters, whereas in Minecraft it's around 2 cubes per character.

So much work.... really need to start to work on the game and leave the stupid graphics alone. hehe.

Ah right then. I also have a game in mind for which I am writing my own voxel implementation (see my post in General Discussion).

I was also inspired by Minecraft, but really only so far as it showed me the potential of voxels. My intended gameplay is not based on Minecraft at all.
