    Worked on voxels today! Though, didn't get as much done as hoped since I needed to learn Box2D for the tutorial I made today.

    Today I hooked the voxels back up and went bug hunting, and man did I find a lot of bugs. There's a lot of problems with the Z-buffer, I am going to look into the logarithmic Z buffer idea that NeonSturm mentioned, as it might solve a lot of these issues.

    Here is Trinity A shining through the voxels!

    Here's a video showing the day/night cycle. As you can see, there's lots of problems :/



    Also, FYI a girl is coming in town and staying with me for a few days soon, I might not be doing any dev those few days cause, ya know. Think of it as a vacation.

    "stuff" :p

    Seriously though, enjoy your vacation. Bugs aside, the day/nigh cycle seems to be coming along well. Will we be seeing the rather sexy sunsets we saw in earlier versions soon?

    That video looks super amazing. The objects make lift up the mood.

    Or you could go program and she watches you doing that. That way you still get stuff done, and she has a very boring and disappointing weekend!(message is: I do not recommend doing that as described in the message)

    Wouldn't it be hilarious if she was actually into programming?

    Yes, But now she is nothing but a mere mortal, fallen from the astral plane of the gods. Also she had nothing to do with our true gods creation, which makes many question if she ever was a true goddess, BUT WHO IS TO QUESTION BEN THE TRUE GOD!.

    Oh yes, it would still be good, but I also think it would be funny.
    It's probably a really personal question, so I don't expect him to answer, but I wonder what became of our fallen goddess?

    LOL my sides!
    I gave up on that a long time ago. Finding a programmer girl is like finding a unicorn. There were like 4 in our senior class, and they were all taken. At this point I would just be happy with a girl who is actually interested in the game I have been pouring my soul into, which is something that had eluded me until now.
