Perspective discussion

Post by Balthazar » Thu Jan 22, 2009 9:35 am

Zuzuf, can you post 1-2 screenshots of perspective similar to orthogonal projection (by settings the camera viewing point very far from screen)?

I`m very curious about this and it shouldn`t be a hard thing to do, as I suppose. :oops:

Well, in fact it was even easier to get a working camera using glOrtho instead of glFrustum, but it breaks many things (shadows, map cursor positioning, mega zoom, ...). But I got interesting screen shots. Since I can't upload them here from were I am I am going to send them by mail :wink:

Wow, no distortion, no strange geometry on the sides of the screen... I like it :)

Here`s your screenshots, so anyone else can discuss them

It sure gives a perfect TA feeling.

The distortion / strange geometry on the sides of the screen always bugged me too, but I was waiting that the engine had its rewrites to point this out.
Talking about mega-zoom and stuff, since the inspiration is Supreme Commander, you can see that they achieved this without having distortions at the edges so it is definitely possible.

On the other hand, still no 3D models for rocks and stuff ? (look at the star shaped thing at the left of the commander)

well the 3D rocks are on the TODO list ... if you feel the need to build some models you can make some :)

Dunno how to do that, but it's not the subject here.

I mean "CPU thread process priority" :D that should make pathfollowing better

This cannot be fixed with current Allegro code, but with SDL port we'll be able to do something :)

Then I`ll set manually priority level of Ta3d and write about it on forums.

Orthographic camera is implemented :)

you can set it in options menu, or in the console using following commands:
enable/disable camera_orthographic
enable/disable camera_perspective

unit selection, shadows, water renderer, zooming, visible/invisible test work perfectly using the orthographic camera :)

Thanks for adding the option, it'll be good to have for new players that just want "TA in 3D" and nothing more.

I don`t want "just TA and nothing more", but TA view is quite handfull and TA maps looks better with ortographic projection :P

When will be the release of something working to test?

probably not this week end since I won't have much time for a release, may be next week end if there are enough changes to the 0.5 branch.

So maybe you could write something about AI coding so xpoy could try AI modifications?

well, there is almost nothing to say about AI in TA3D ... except we're going to rewrite it :p.

Current AI was to be temporary.

no problem, I'll rewrite the basis of our Lua integration in order to use the same Lua threading system everywhere (AI, maps, units, ...) and make sure TA3D can be build on windows (and not only cross compiled from Linux to windows).
