3d particle engine is in!
« on: 2013-Nov-26 »
Dearest GLB-Gang,

APE - A 3d particle engine for GLBasic can be found in 3d snippets section of this forum. http://www.glbasic.com/forum/index.php?topic=8790.0
The download for the lib is in the first message of the thread.
Happy thanksgiving, happy holidays!

I wonder if we should not make a micropayment system (SMS) for the works of this quality.  O_O

I think at SMS because it is the simplest and most anonymous system.

Heh, im not even sure what that is.
The library is a gift to the community.

TBH with you, i dont think theres much demand for 3d partcle systems.
So it has been a month, that thread with the lib has had very litte new activity, and no one asking questions(was my helpfle that good? hehe).
Which is unfortunate, because GLBasic has a really powerful 3d environment, and a particle system can be used to represent realistic looking realtime physics which can be used in games or test models, or scenes...sky is not the limit.

About the future for APE:
Sometime soon, i will spend a fair amount of time developing some kind of interface for developing APE 3d particle systems on the fly.
Perhaps i earn a few compensative dollars for this effort.

Thanks Hemlos for sharing your work, I think from you code I can learn a lot of 3D programming... Very very thanks.
