  1. On the road with Blaise

    So, I am looking and looking and looking but I can not find any publications, blogs, forums, tutorials on how to build a planet. Every time I search I find all kinds of info projects to put a globe into a C++ application but nothing in Pascal.
    One of the demos for Final3D has what appears to be a sphere but of course the demo does not allow any direct manipulation of the sphere so I have no idea what it is capable of.
    Is there any body who has knowledge of a solution to ...
  2. Going multithreaded...

    Well, after having dabbled on this topic many times before - I decided I'd do AMD's latest chips a favour and make my code benefit from all that threaded goodness they can offer . So, I dove into the code archive and found some bits and bobs that had been gathering dust for a almost 2 years now... Turns out that since then a few bits were depreceated with FPC 2.6.0 . So I changed all the Execute() calls to Start() and hey presto, the old code had some life breathed back into it.

  3. Back into development - why breaks aren't a good idea...

    Well, as promised, I'll be putting a few more things up after having come back into the development scene. I'm pretty much jumping ship with my LD entry - despite it showing good progress, something I wont go into the details of .

    I see lots has changed now I'm compiling more stuff (and a lot of older stuff to make some new stuff work ). Especially on the depreceated front. I've got these in audio, threads and just about everywhere else. Even in bits of code I didnt even knew existed ...
  4. Quixote 1

    So as I begin this journey this is my line of thinking..
    The game is played on the surface so I want a 3d representation of our planet. I have found that several organizations will provide the data to create a 3d representation and I have found sites that have overlays for city names. I want to be able to start the game by seeing the whole planet and then zoom in to street level much like openstreetmap, but without the actual streets showing up.
    So, I am teaching myself about terrain ...
  5. An Indroduction

    Hello PGD.
    A little about myself, as a young man and while in college I worked for my fatherís construction company. In my first summer I came to understand the importance of a foundation, the intricacies of electrical and plumbing systems, the importance of use of space and the joy of creation.
    I now bring that understanding to this new journey. I have begun to read what I can find at my local library, I hope I can get by without the need to take college classes. My 3 year old would ...
