one may find an early prototype at

i am developing it on my own and seeking sponsors and/or modellers/animators. if interested, you may always contact me at my site

hi there,

it has been a long time since my last post and i did a lot in that time. now there is texture based dressing, mesh based accesories, 2d talking balloons, sky box, registration and more in karga. and i'm still looking for sponsors and 3d artists..

i'm re-organizing terrain structure, including:

* an xml based terrain configuration as usual
* allowing max instance and reference clones (via max script) to decrease memory usage
* a simple LoD (level of detail) implementation
* switching between nodes is more like games now, simply walk to door
* changed to way balloons pop up

i used a transition area for LoD to minimize pop effect. i.e. only after the transition area is passed the object is replaced with a different mesh

following diagram demonstrates the transition area in LoD system (1, 2 are different LoD levels and the arrows indicates movement direction)

---- LoD (1) --->| (1) |---- (2) -->
<--- LoD (1) ----| (2) |<--- (2) ---

below image shows an extreme sample demonstrating LoD running. that is a huge map (1km x 1km in human scale) consists of 10x10 tiles each has 1000 polygons. that maps loads in a couple of minutes on my box and doesnt fit into a 256mb jvm. but runs fast enough

the new look of avatar panel. those transparent panels are addictive on me with no doubt Tongue
