Ok so I have a question. So when you start up the program, it doesn't appear inside a Windows' window. It only generates a task bar item if you open any one of the various options menus. So is there a way to quit out of desktop mode without killing the process in task manager? Your help page doesn't say anything about that. Is there some kind of key stroke combination to quit the program or return to island/ forest mode?
Here is the new Forest level. We are afterall trying to create paradise.
Should be out soon I hope.
What's really interesting is the grass.
Look at these two textures. I can now place grass on a landscape with the values from a texture. It took me like 2 weeks to figure it out. I wish I could show the code to someone who understood how complex it is. It's one of my most beutiful 'babies'.
The next version of AiBliss will include a built-in world builder.
It's pretty simple at this point but allows you to make your own levels. Very cool.
I'll try to make a tutorial on how to use it. You will of course need a 3D program to make your models. I will include a few of them in the program. Trees, props, etc... The best way to export a model into the game is by using Panda DirectX exporter with 3dsmax.
Still have a lot of work to do for the next update but I'm 2/3rds there! That ain't bad. I say 2 weeks. I pretty much gutted AiBliss's environment architecture and put in a complete new one. Now you can even make your own levels.
The World Builder v1 module is 95% complete. I made this level in 15 minutes for example. It's very easy if you are an artist to put in your own stuff now.
This is what the World Builder is looking like right now.
