Re: [Trunk] Reading OXZ from nested OXP directory

I’m gonna go with “no”. Supporting subfolders should just be a matter of moving the [dirEnum skipDescendents]; at ResourceManager.m:251 up into the if case. (I still maintain that not calling it in the if case has always been a bug.) To avoid amusing shenanigans it would be best to filter out symlin...

Re: Optional rotating ship on status screen (Code & Preview)

Harderer: write a new entity subclass which extracts the drawables from a ship/player entity, with their relative positions and orientations intact. If you retain the original drawables, the shaders will still be bound to the original ship, although some properties might be weird while docked. (Ther...

Re: Source Code and Ideas question

There are also a number of different sorting algorithms around, some of them rather famous in programming circles, designed for different requirements.. it will be worth your while to research them.. a google-search on "sorting algorithms" will get you started. Please ignore this advice. :-) You re...

You’d think, but NSArray throws an exception, which is de facto a crash.

Re: Planettool 0.4.2 released

It works fine in my Mac. However, the buffer needed to render at that size (using a 128-bit-per-pixel internal colour format) is over 1.6 GiB. Then it will need an additional 403 MiB to convert it to 32 bpp for the PNG file, plus space for the PNG data (40 MiB in my test of a high-res Earth texture)...

Re: Screenshots

For reference, I believe the current design is supposed to look like a [wp]corner reflector[/wp], although it wouldn’t actually work as one since the faces are slightly convex.

Re: He who prefers security over liberty deserves neither

Um.

I would suggest, at a minimum, waiting a week and then considering whether this is a very good idea.

Re: Progress

For tonight’s nightly, multitexture lighting effects have been enabled for low-detail mode. To minimize the performance impact, light maps are constricted to 256×256 pixels in this mode.

We’re very interested in knowing if this affects performance significantly for people using this mode.
