    ders no respawn in real life

    der might be. You can give it a try and report back

    I'd rather not try it out just to test it. Anyway the re-spawn comment was aimed at the quip about aliens; and if there are aliens there bloody well better be re-spawning!

    I found an interesting little half finished game.

    http://www.urbanwarfareonline.com/screenshots.html

    look close at the top right in this pic:
    http://www.urbanwarfareonline.com/screenshots/SS3.jpg
    I spy a condom!! (which use I do advocate)

    This comes right out the the readme

    Minimum Specifications:

    512MB RAM

    2.4 GHz Intel processor or 2400+ or higher model AMD procressor

    Windows XP/Vista

    OpenGL 1.5 or higher

    128MB video memory

    Vertex and pixel shader 2.0 compatible hardware

    Internet connection

    100MB hard drive space

    100% DirectX compatible keyboard or input device
    It uses raknet, openal, opengl, ogg and contains some level of physics support (we got bouncy balls!)

    No linux support and not open source. Levels are just modeled and made xml (which in this case is a stupid idea).

    Runs 200fps in wine for me.

    Levels in XML are not a stupid idea if you do it the right way ( aka using it for entities and just reference level geometry in a binary file ).

    i never said they was a stupid idea, its very speedy if used properly (if thats what you were implying). I was more refering to the level being done entirely in a modeling program.

    This is again nothing wrong and is done often ( QW:ET, Stalker ). Is also the case in my engine ( terrain meshes in Blender, height terrain and placement in world editor ) for example.

    for terrains it makes perfect sense (take etqw for example). Etqw terrains were not entirely done in maya either (im fairly sure ID uses maya primarily). For buildings its a total time killer. Im not sure if stalker structures are modeled or not but as i recall that game took forever to come out.

    If human life expectancy wasn't so low it wouldn't matter but the fact remains that we live to die and we die eventually.

    QW:ET is based on MegaTexture which is about texturing one huge triangle soup terrain with one texture. John itself said in his article on GamaSutra that the terrain is one large mesh in modeller that is then textured using this approach. So yes, QW:ET does use this technique.

    So why doing it this way? It has one important advantage: versatility. If you don't code this editing support into your world editor people can use whatever 3D modelling application ( given the format is free, which in the case of Stalker had been a Maya plugin for example ) they work fastest with for creating the geometry. Don't underestimate blender and other apps on modeling buildings. Those are highly sophisticated applications so anybody skilled in their use ( and in a real game production you have skilled artists ) produces the required assets with easy and in time. So that's no argument against this technique.

    Now from your comments I take it you are a brush-mapper?
