Good lord, those textures are beautiful!

When you say that there's a large performance hit with POM, how large are you talking in comparison to normal mapping?

Larger than normal mapping of course, but the beauty of OD is that we run specific paths and settings for everything and don't skimp out on optional extras, which means this can be enabled/disabled and tweaked in quality with no hassle. The performance drop is no worse than it is in any other title/application, however it is worse than relief mapping as its a LOT nicer.

Will you have the ability to choose between relief mapping and POM? Like in darkplaces?

I mean I can handle POM, but it would be a nice alternative.

Wow, these are top quality... great development here with the 2048x2048 materials and the normal, specular, diffuse and bump.
I'll have to try this technique out

They are 1024x1024, only a few terrain materials for tiling are 2048x.

Just a random, short and pointless video showing Parallax Occlusion Mapping (POM) in action.

Plus a special shout out to Pob, the dirty spitting bastard.
