Tesseract
« on: April 19, 2012, 03:01:48 am »
Eihrul has announced that he would start working on a project called Tesseract. It's not supposed to replace sauerbraten but it's kind of like an experiment.
Tesseract is a whole new lighting system that introduces dynamic lighting. Since the sauerbraten lighting system was basically a copy of the Cube lighting system, with some additional features, it has never had dynamic lighting.

Check out the forum post here,: http://cubeengine.com/forum.php4?action=display_thread&thread_id=2534

The github repository: https://github.com/lsalzman/tesseract

And a youtube video demonstrating this new system: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZkFT1ra2w-A

This new lightning system looks very cool and hopefully it could be included in an official release of sauerbraten.

Never argue with an idiot. He'll drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.

Nope, haven't yet. Looks really good though.

We should host a Tesseract Server. I love this. So. Fucking. Much. <3

...wtf? I've downloaded it and tried running it. All I get is "Could not find core textures" error and "missing SDL.dll from your computer" error.

Ok, first, you need the packages folder from a svn sauerbraten, second, start it with the batch file.

Me and jake did some editing yesterday but forgot to make screenies. Refractive materials are really cool.

*cough*
Zoocata, did you read any of the comments on the forum thread?
You need to drag over the packages folder from the Sauer SVN.

Put it in BLAHDIRECTORY/Tesseract/tesseract/

I just created a junction point with mine so I wouldn't have duplicated assets. Plus, I'll probably never go back to the SVN now. :P

Oh, fixed it. Played it. Loved it.
but 1) still a few bugs, as sometimes the blocks disappear and then reappear.
2) LAGGY AS FUCK

This is super cool!
It is a profound and necessary truth that the deep things in science are not found because they are useful; they are found because it was possible to find them.
