It's a "ground up" approach so it's hard to see "fantastic" (i.e. "wow that's realistic!") results right off, but for those that can see where it's headed (as I can), it's quite excitint. Keep up the great work!For allowing easier (e.g. slider-based) control you could use the "macro" system we plan to implement. It will alow for "encapsulating" a group of nodes into a single parent node (much as Object nodes currently have internal networks) and then exposing some of the settings in a custom dialog similar to the node settings windows you use currently. This will be similar to how World Machine works, for example. A fairly sophisticated but simple to use and effective system.- Oshyan
Quote from: Rob Allen on February 23, 2007, 09:12:19 pmThanks for all the positive feedback and support. That's part of what's kept this project going this far. When the project is closer to completion, I will start looking at options for interfaces. Based on what I've done so far, it seems that it will be necessary. Already simply randomizing the entire planet is an involved process of clicks. Let alone modifying certain features.
