  1. Have you tried something like Polygon Cruncher? http://www.mootools.com/plugins/us/polygoncruncher/ For a lot of small teams or individual creator, something like this would be a good step in your custom model pipeline.
  2. Main reason I'd be interested in C++ is for performance to do stuff like a new object streaming system I have in mind that would create and remove objects dynamically (picking up edits to objects and saving them out to a database before unloading them). Not sure if Lua as glue would cause too much of a delay, it might work, but would be ideal for it to be a native interface. Either way sounds very exciting, can't wait to get my hands on v5.
  3. That would be epic. I was wondering if there's a possibility for the same thing in C++ maybe? Like, load the project's custom code as a DLL into the editor and allow for extensions that could add really basic interface elements such as a custom sidebar panel, then create / manipulate world objects. I want to stick with Leadwerks and if I can develop my own systems by creating editor extensions in C++ that would go a long way towards making it an even more long lasting platform. Same thing is Lua would be a really great start though.
  4. Yeah I am aware of that as an option for custom assets prior to import, but as far as I can tell there isn't a way to do that for files that have already been imported or come from with the engine or an add-on pack, correct? It would be really nice if this were an option that could be tweaked in the vegetation settings for each item and a setting to have it randomly vary by some amount, it would really add a lot of visual variety without requiring more assets to be imported for each variation of depth a rock is pushed into the ground, for instance.
  5. I am having a hard time finding a way to tweak the way that vegetation objects appear, specifically I am hoping to push them into the ground a bit to improve their appearance a bit. Right now roots are very visible on trees and rocks rest unnaturally on top of the terrain rather than appear partly into the terrain surface. Is there a way to do this that I'm missing? Ideally I'd like a method that can work on mld files. I know with fbx source files I can edit the models and this would probably solve my problem but I'm trying not to change my source models too much unless I'm rebuilding them.
  6. Weird, I just creating a new map with File > New before loading the map and it seems to have worked.
  7. I am getting this crash when trying to load one of my maps: --------------------------- Leadwerks Editor --------------------------- Object already deleted. --------------------------- OK --------------------------- Any ideas how to fix this?
  8. Yeah I looked in there and there are basically no references to how to modify the color or distribution of stars, etc. There are a lot of equations but basically no explanation of what they do... Maybe you are looking at a different version?
  9. Doesn't the script replace the material in that object? I want to make sure the day night changes actually still work but swap out my own art for the day and night parts.
  10. Any one figured out how to get shadmar's DayNight script to work with a skybox or otherwise change the blue sky color?
  11. Yeah, that's what I meant. I know there is no such thing as CSG specific shaders.
  12. Cool! Is there anything for CSG shaders? Not sure what type that would be referred to as. Ah I guess the videos cover those types?
  13. You can also have multiple Worlds loaded and activate one of them at a time. I have some similar goals and had to figure out a way to do this so I could keep my hub area in memory while loading only what was needed for a dungeon / interior. Exiting an interior is almost instant since it just has to unload the assets for the interior map and reactivate the outer world which is already fully loaded.
  14. Is there any kind of tutorial or introduction, or documentation for the shaders?
  15. It'd probably be better to just change the AI script so it knows it can't swim?
  16. Yeah I think what happens is that the window got pushed off screen somehow. So it was opening but not visible. The same thing happened to me with the sidebar / assets browser. It's possible to resize it so small you can't resize it back out again. Clearing the cfg file resets the UI and works around these issues fortunately! I now have a ZIP'd backup of my cfg file to restore in case it happens again.
  17. Try closing Leadwerks then deleting Leadwerks.cfg in Documents\Leadwerks and relaunching.
  18. I'm getting this message every time I try to launch my game after moving the project to a new machine: --------------------------- Leadwerks Editor --------------------------- Project is out-of-date. Do you want to update the project before running it? --------------------------- Yes No Cancel --------------------------- If I select Yes, Leadwerks goes back to the Project Manager screen immediately. I reopen the project and it says the same message if I try to run it again. If I select No, the game appears to start up fine. What's up?
  19. Would be great to have a sidearm and animations on the merc character. This type of thing seems to be sort of rare so far, lots of characters have rifle type animation but few side arms / pistols.
  20. Thanks, I'm really happy with how it's turned out so far. We'll see if the model extends to the rest of the more important actions and if I can clean up the code enough to put it in the workshop (one of my goals is to make everything I create reusable for others).
  21. Finally figured out moving animation out of FBX files and into iClone so I can apply it to customized characters, very relieved it was possible or could have turned into a roadblock

  22. Quick demo video of my Utility and Needs Based UI test framework. Click to see video on workshop This is a quick demo video of my Utility and Needs Based AI test framework. There are several things going on here to cause the AI actors to decide what to do: - A scoring function runs every tick that updates the score for each available action. The top scoring action is marked as the active mode; if the mode changed since the last tick, startup logic runs for the new mode and the new animation loop is activated. - The sleep

  24. The traditional way to solve infinite recursion problem in dump/copy routines (which are basically the same thing) is to keep a list of seen objects and pass it to each nested call, similar to this copy function: function copy(obj, seen) if type(obj) ~= 'table' then return obj end if seen and seen[obj] then return seen[obj] end local s = seen or {} local res = setmetatable({}, getmetatable(obj)) s[obj] = res for k, v in pairs(obj) do res[copy(k, s)] = copy(v, s) end return res end Obviously instead of returning an already seen object you would return something like "Recurs
