No. It will have physics for objects and the like, you can shoot in cans and have them bounce around, that kind of thing. But rag doll's are a bit pointless in a game where when you die, you need to wait to be revived, if you get me?

TBH, Level editors have had a 3D view for years :D I started mapping with Qoole, for Quake 2, so I cant say before that, but even that had a 3D view (Just not realtime because of lightmapping, so it was always an unlit 3d view, fullbright).

Its been in closed Alpha for a while while we get the rendering engine sorted. For the past week or so we have been working on getting ODRadiant together so that people can map for the game very easily.

Once the rendering engine is complete we will get to all those little details people love in the game engine and, well, then its on to beta.

As for when that is...

Gavavva Aug 21 2008, 8:15am replied:

Because its too outdated...?

OverDose has Per Pixel Shadowing (Like Doom 3's) with shadow mapping, which means we get soft shadows. Goldsource has a very old .bsp map format with old static lightmaps. Its just too old and too ugly.

Plus we have added all this to Quake 2's base code now. Theres so much to OverDose there is hardly any more left of Quake 2 in there at all, thats how much of an engine rewrite we have done. Everything from the networking, the sound, the rendering... Physics... Christ everything has been re-made. Its our own engine really these days.

Can you imagine porting it over to an older engine...? Just wouldn't work. If it did it would take forever.

Well with Brink, they sadly stream lined the game way too much. It wasn't ET like it should have been, it was more like TF2, but without any of the fun. The game chugged, on even amazing systems, and even when it wasn't chugging it felt way too heavy. It was just dull to play, sadly.

It sucks because the art was just amazing, and they had a good go at things. But when you throw everything at a game, you need to make sure "everything" is polished. Sadly, it was a game with a million and one things, none of which were polished enough to work or be fun... Don't even get me started on balance.

That's kinda the point. The original was just no good there, it was a cramped room with an odd layout... Seeing as this isn't a direct remake and it's more a reimagining, I took the liberty and went ahead in turning it into a more visually interesting shower room. The comparison is there to show you the general area.

Gavavva Feb 25 2011, 8:09am says:

Its a game. Its also a UI scene, so I can't use things you would expect, particles and the like, its all hacked model surfaces. I only have so much memory to work with before it takes years to load and chugs, defeating the point.

Heres a changelog so far:

-Added green lights to the marine near his chest/wrist so cast some dynamic shading. Not sure why I forgot those in the first place.

- Changed the blood pool on the floor to be less pool and more "dragged".

- Re-worked the dude texture so hes more bloody, more beaten up, also shows on the normal. The space I have to work with is tiny for this to keep file size down, its not like the player model.

- Removed dudes left wrist, cut it off, and stuck it on the floor near him, made it whiter obviously, added blood and stuff to it as needed.

- Changed the light above the door to a rare random flicker, added flare to match as well as light.

- Changed light inside open doorway, now pushed back further but also added alpha tested character shadow of people running that randomly streaks over the screen in that room, making it look like theres action going on.

- Various other little tweaks etc.

In Progress-

- Add more surface impacts for rain, there isn't enough atm. More ambient stuff.

- Change all the surface materials to a "Wet" effect. Waiting on shader.

I knew I shouldn't have uploaded that video so soon.

All foliage selfshadows and shadows the world, same as any other surface in the game (Including alpha tested surface, something Doom 3 won't do for example because the tech wont allow it). However we don't use sprites for anything thats lit, because sprites don't containt the correct lighting info unless they are updated every frame (Expensive!). So, every foliage model in the engine has to be an actual mesh, which isn't expensive at all, quite cheap, and looks so much fuller and better than an always looking at you sprite.
