Yes that's called double sided polygons.
A new world has opened.
It's a whole new world we live in,
Do-Do-Do, Do, Do-Do
It's a whole new way to see,
Do-Do-Do, Do, Do-Do
It's a whole new place, with a brand new attitude,
But you still 'Gotta catch 'em all!'
And be the best that you can be!
I believe it is because the trees are in reality, flat. Client side, they rotate to face you, so you never see that their flat ingame.
what i was talking about is essentially make the models with EACH environment in mind. If we only make rocks for duststorm and canyon then we'll need some for snow maps and mvalley type maps.
So the best rock model would have about 8-9 skins for the different climates.
$nocull renders the texture on both sides of a polygon.
Gasp, why thank you for that piece of information. Now to make some damned awesome trees!
That used to be on all the building models. It was fun having half the fps inside buildings. :>
Well, now that we can do this that means we can make a parachute model with half the polygons. Lol.
I need kitchen appliances! nice stainless steel ones! Griddles, Freezers, The whole 120 yards!
Satanchild's already got me shoved full of Renaissance stuff Metal Smith, I doubt I can get to yours =(
I always thought empires could need some empires related tech stuff
like monitors and such things with NF and BE style
monitors, pipes, cable stacks, weapon stashes, universal resource node props? peaces that are used in the normal buildings, like the chains in nf vf, the vf display etc etc
some of them might be already present
We really could use some general tech stuff in that "stealth bomber" look
that all the BE vehicles have. Stuff like generators, computers asf...
Thats the "stealth bomber" if you dont know what i mean.
nothing to specific and recognizable
i don't want to see 20 stealth bombers in every new map, especially when i just read that the cost to build only 1 of those is enough to solve the hunger problem in Africa in 10 years according to TIME
He didn't say make stealth bombers, he said make general props in a BE theme.
Think about that for a bit and see if it still makes sense to you. I guarantee that was never in time, they might not be the best news source by they aren't run into the wall retarded.
I doubt that. The best source I could find estimates basic health care at $13 bil per year. That's more like 65 B-2 stealth bombers (the US only has 19) or 1000 F-117 (the USAF has a little over 1000 fighters total) for ten years.
17 B-2 Spirits (unit cost US$737 Million)
305 F-117 Nighthawks (unit cost $US42.6 Million)
There are, however, more expensive planes they could buy.
Stop derailing my thread! But still, I find military equipment is way to expensive. If I had to be honest if you could build a stealth aircraft that could dodge all current and possible future detection devices, you could pretty much get rid of all infantry, but that would leave you with only carpet bombs and precision munitions.
Looks like I included development cost, I only calculated those numbers from memory. Also, blizzerd was speaking of a ten-year period.
