  1. How many polygons to use, guidelines?

    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. Pushing terrain vegetation into ground

    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. Pushing terrain vegetation into ground

    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. Pushing terrain vegetation into ground

    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. Any help is appreciated.
  6. Crash trying to load map

    Weird, I just creating a new map with File > New before loading the map and it seems to have worked.
  7. Crash trying to load map

    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. DayNight with a skybox?

    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. DayNight with a skybox?

    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. DayNight with a skybox?

    Any one figured out how to get shadmar's DayNight script to work with a skybox or otherwise change the blue sky color?
  11. Shaders?

    Yeah, that's what I meant. I know there is no such thing as CSG specific shaders.
  12. Shaders?

    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. Question about large (4096x4096) terrain

    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. Shaders?

    Is there any kind of tutorial or introduction, or documentation for the shaders?
  15. Paint area of navmesh

    It'd probably be better to just change the AI script so it knows it can't swim?
