Welcome to CMM

The CMM forum software was recently upgraded, some things may have changed and some things may be broken or not working. Please let me know by PM or on IRC if you have any problems using this forum.

Also, I've removed the skybox and shader links for now, the shader generator page was being abused and as we're moving towards a ue4 mapping base, they're redundant.

Urban Terror HD new engine design announced.

Postby FrankieV » Thu Jul 04, 2013 8:29 pm

As some of you might have noticed Frozen Sand has announced that Urban Terror HD will be built on an engine of our own design so if you have any question feel free to ask and I'll see what I can do to give a reasonable answer as it relates to where we are now.

Good Question.

The code name for our engine design is Iceberg and is modular in design as to what we want to put into it and more important to take out necessary to run Urban Terror at the highest performance level possible.

Urho and Ogre are just two of the many components that are available to plug into our design where if one element of the design does not meet our needs can be modified, removed, or changed at will and not limited by third party involvement due to incompatible licensing requirements.

From the ground up no but if some part or component is not up to our specifications it will be changed even if it means recoding from the ground up.

Will we be using these components is still up to Raedwulf to decided but if and when a decision is made I'm sure it will be made know but as far as content goes such decisions have little effect as far as our protected assets goes.

I noticed urho3d and ogre3d support both opengl and direct3d9, will UrT hD be bale to run in either modes or will you stick to opengl.

I see animations are supported in those engines. So now we'll be able to create fully animated objects in maps? Like moving machine parts etc...

When will we know which of the 2 is used, and can we download SDK's now and play around with them to get a better idea as to how the engine works.
And how the hell do you start urho :D

Rylius has been working with Ogre (I think) for a couple of years, he really rates it.

BTW, I'm on irc and awake now... never in the evenings.

No, rates it - it's UK slang term for liking something.

Wasn't it easier to just say that in the first place instead of letting me spend 10 clicks on my keyboard? Clicks are expensive you know :D
Tell him to write a tutorial on how the hell to run that damn thing cause i looked at it and it's all japanese to me.
