Re: Artwork Refresh for BZFlag

Thank you for your feedback, Bullet Catcher. Nice demo, nEW playe. Your changes significantly increase the realism, but I am concerned about gameplay. That's true, sometimes it's really annoying while rear driving, but it adds a level of difficulty though (besides, this is often used in other shoote...

Re: Artwork Refresh for BZFlag

Finally I made a video of a few features I implemented.
(In the past it was difficult to capture videos because of my old gfx card).

Here is the link to it:

And do which particle system will be used then? Would it be the same sort of thing as the GM smoke trails? Or would it be based on my system? Or would it be implemented via LUA script?

Re: Artwork Refresh for BZFlag

Now we just need to patch it for 3.0 and maybe it will make it in :) Let's hope so! :D The cool thing about my ParticleSystem is that you can easily implement smoke or even fire not only on tanks, but also in BzFlag Worlds (someone else might do that). The positive thing against LUA is the speed of...

Re: Artwork Refresh for BZFlag

I also added that the color of tank exhaust is their team color. Only exception is that rabbits are rainbow. You coded for example for the Red Team: if(getTeam() == RedTeam) { pcol[0] = 1; pcol[1] = 0; pcol[2] = 0; } But why don't you do it linear? It's much nicer then because you preserve the "com...

Re: Artwork Refresh for BZFlag

Oh, yeah, I forgot about the blindness thing, but I intentionally activated the exhaust also for STealth tanks, but I DEactivated it for the CLoaked tanks. Take your time to think logical about it: All two characteristics of stealth and cloaked are preserved: Proof for non-seal situations: o Cloaked...

Re: Some other wallpapers

This can become handy to create additional models to your own BzFlag tank! 8) Here are a few screenshots I recently took. I modelled a propellor in Blender, then exported it to .obj and then generated the opengl code with the provided python tool "obj2ogl.py". Finally I made a propellor.cxx in src/...

Re: Artwork Refresh for BZFlag

What should I show? The C++ code :wink: ? Definitely! I"d love to mod my client with these cool ad-ons :) If you have BZ checked out from SVN, you can simply use the svn diff command to create a file that people can use to apply the mod to their clients. Then it sounds like if you provide the .diff...

Well, I made ParticleSceneNode.cpp/h, ParticleSystem.cpp/h and modified LocalPlayer.cpp/h (+ a few other ones) a little bit.
Then I made a couple of Particles in the GIMP.

Re: Artwork Refresh for BZFlag

Whoa, that's awesome, the LUA part! Especially Lua_GLSL_Api will give bzflags graphics a new life, I'm also quite amazed about the speed of the API. I am thinking not releasing my patches because of the new LUA api, but I'm post anyways my work (I'm posting this quite late, but I'm still at school +...

Re: New tank skins for you to try.

Nice work!
I really like them! I'm now using them by default. :mrgreen:
What texture algorithm did you use to create the "electric"? Was it done in Blender?

Well, I hope the release won't come out too soon, because I'm currently working on some changes and new implementations like smoke (with Particle System), improved graphics and dynamics (barrel moving at reload) and vibrating cam. after explosion, etc. And it would be nice to include this to in the ...

Here are some renders made in Blender. There are no buildings, it are just some simple renders. (The propellor is present because I'm working on a FlightSim for BzFlag -> cfr. SpitFire :D ) The main difficulty was to import the tank model. (I made a script to convert OpenGL C++ code to .obj-file and...
