Best looking UML-tool I ever used, btw :) A good overview of all the Irrlicht interface classes shows this UModel generated class diagram. If you think that Irrlicht consists of about 3 or 4 times more classes for the implementation, you get the idea soon that Irrlicht is not a trivial piece of software. :)
Doom Movie Teaser? Doesn't look as bad as expected.
BTW: Don't you think that the old Doom and Doom II have been more fun to play, now, after the Doom³ hype has faded away a little bit?
|Sehr geehrte Damen und Herren, |
Hiermit möchte ich unter Einhaltung der dreimonatigen Kündigungsfrist heute, zum Ende dieses Kalendermonats, des Juli 2005, das Mietverhältnis mit Ihnen bezüglich der Wohnung in der Dresdnerstr. ********* beenden.
Ich werde mich in den nächsten Tagen telefonisch bei Ihnen melden um die Modalitäten hierzu besprechen zu können.
Mit freundlichen Grüßen,
P.S.: Ich hoffe die Nutten vom Erdgeschoss sowie die Ratten im Keller haben's ab sofort ruhiger wenn wir nicht mehr so laut Musik spielen.
Feeling better now. BTW: The last sentence was written by my flat-mate. :)
Bear Bile Farming. Extract:
|In countries across Asia, thousands of bears live a life of torture on bear farms, so that their bile can be extracted and used in Traditional Medicine to cure ailments ranging from headaches to haemorrhoids. Bears are confined in cages which vary from agonisingly tiny "crush" cages to larger pens, all of which cause terrible physical and mental suffering. But their torment does not end there.....the bears are subjected to painful methods of bile extraction which involve crude surgery to implant a steel catheter into the abdomen or the creation of a permanent hole in the abdomen known as the "free-dripping" technique.|
I knew about this already, but everytime I think about it, it really makes me angry.
the Austrian politicans are defining the Germans who are living in Austria as enemies.
Just to remember: I am german, living in Austria. And I don't really like this. Don't know how much job taxes and tuition fees I already paid in Austria, but I think a lot more than the average Austrian guy of my age. F*ck you, silly politicans. *angry*
Irrlicht related emails in my inbox. Sorry that I didn't answer them yet. Got a new job and not a lot of time. But I'll try to answer all of them at the weekend.
Irrlicht, it looks like this:
The about 300 clouds in that scene are moving and changing and you can also fly through them. It's quite realistic and impressive, way cooler than just a static painted background. For more info and a demo, see the irrlicht forum.

It looks like this:
I wrote this program three years ago. I wanted to extend it today, but unfortunately, I've lost the source code. Originally, it hat a link and a banner to my old homepage, www.code3d.com, but I was able to exchange that with a resource and a hex editor. Some people would call this cracking/hacking. But at least it's legal for me, for it is my own software.
a site all about ponies, REAL PONIES, found here:
|Ponies can kill anyone they want! Ponies cut off heads ALL the time and don't even think twice about it. These guys are so crazy and awesome that they flip out ALL the time. I heard that there was this pony who was sleeping at Paradise Estate. And when some dude dropped an amulet the pony killed the whole town.|
- I just passed an exam which I didn't dare to take for the last 5 years.
- I 've got a new job which will start this week.
- I've just lost my girlfriend.
- I am currently getting a new appartment.
Back to the estate agents: I found that really cool appartment. I called the estate agent immediately, but he wasn't available. I tried it again, the whole day long, even left my number and the secretary told me that I would be called back. I wasn't called back at all and then I tried the email form. No response either. Then, we tried to fill the email form again, but we added one small thing. Instead of just the name, we added a 'Mag.' in front of it. (That's Austrian for 'MBA', for example). Result: We received an invitation for an inspection immediately. How sick is this?
Vienna University of Technology:
You can find Martin and me in that picture. We are sitting next to each other. The picture is a little bit blurry, but if you know how we look like, you can find us.
YaMoR. It's quite interesting. The cool thing about it: They also created Eve, a simulator for these robots. And it is written using Irrlicht.
BTW: I just released Irrlicht 0.11.0.
The left image shows a metallic shaded skin. It's not that impressive, but it shows that it works. It is also possible to change the whole GUI completely, for example drawing textures instead of only colored buttons and windows. I think with this feature, people will be able to create the GUI for their games now a lot easier.
The European Parliarment has rejected to vote for the Software Patents for now. Kewl.
Irrlicht Engine documentation. Some are saying it is very good, some even tell me that Irrlicht is one of the best documentated 3D engines and some say that the documentation could be improved. So I'm going to extend the documentation with more examples in the future. But I also thought about adding images, like this:
This shows anti aliasing, a new feature in the next version, 0.11.0. I don't know yet if it is a good idea to add those images and screenshots. But it would be fun to do it, and I think it would make the documentation a lot more interesting. :)

Maybe they should start selling Analysis and Linear Algebra DVDs too, would be better for me.
Pivot is vulnerable to this XML-RPC Exploit. Fortunately the pivot developers provided a patch, and their server is available so that I don't have to switch blog software like others do.
a new page on irrlicht.sourceforge.net and one on xml.irrlicht3d.org.
here, thx sensei)
irrXML 1.1. I added some bug fixes which some users told me to add. Nice that the parser seems to be used by some people out there.
And a recommendation. Go and watch this movie, it really rocks:
Martin, what I've done with my life (german): 69 points. Makes you really think about your life..
