Parking Pond

Posted on:October 05 2007

Damn, I forgot I promised to fill this blog a bit more with non-Irrlicht content. So here is a picture I took when walking to work this morning. No cat content, but duck content on this blog at least. :)


Yep, that's just a wet spot on the ground, and there is a crowd of ducks, misinterpreting this as a lake. Also, notice the realistic environment reflection mapping on the water surface! :)

I'm especially impressed by the wet grass and the atmospheric perspective / fog!
And yea, I guess Ducks are the Cats of tomorrow!

Well, I've already seen better renderings. The container on the right of the pic seems a bit unrealistic. It's a bit tooo sharp. Some bloom would've done wonder. But if it's real-time, it's fantastic. If - what frame-rates do you get?

And I also noticed the uber cranked up shaders on environment objects which are better then Half Life 2 and Bioshock. Really my eyes cannot discriminate real images from Computer Graphics these days. The only difference is infinity times antialiasing and great displacement maping that makes the difference.

To Lino,
Coincidentally I have also chosen Lino (before I saw ur name) as the name of my Sci Fi FPS for PC (which is intended to kill Halo). May make u happy I think.

Each time I see a lake, I can't help but say : "nice water shader !" ^^

And why do we buy all those video games?
In reality, for the best effect, all we have to do is - go to your nearest hunting store, but a knife, rifle and tons of ammo; then tell yourself "all people in yellow shirts are enemies"... load, shoot, reload, run. rinse. repeat ^^ ....

hey, niko, opera reports this when lug checks for fraud on your blog:

"Opera has no information about the current site. It is not on the blacklist of suspected fraud sites, and it has not been verified by a trusted third party.

Please report this site if you believe it should be blacklisted."

lug thought it was funny. :)
