mmllmmbhehhih *mumbles as an idiot*, you really should stop doing this to us.

I had to explain why I'm acting like that to the whole class of 12 year old pupils.

Ok I'm reduced to typing as I'm drooling so much over those shots I can not speak anymore,(has anybody got a mop handy). this is not good as I work on a helpdesk and regularly can't do my job(i.e. everytime SC posts some new shots)

Whoa... out of office for one day, and I find this when I come back?!

Hey! Now there's a theory worth investigating! Maybe my time in the office is inversely proportional to the progress made and updates on BCM. Which means if I somehow stay home all week, it should be done by Saturday? j/k

I added 3 more shots to the page.

I sure don't want to be the guy flying escort behind that idiot with full A/B on. Talk about a roasting!

....I took my guys over to Jupiter. So I took some shots to send home to their parents.

Added 4 more shots. Go check 'em out. The last shot, btw, was take on IO, which happens to be a moon that even though has a gaseous atmosphere, also has a solid core (unlike a truly gaseous planet like Jupiter)

Releasing these tomorrow. In case you were wondering where the hell I was. I'm on IO. OK, not realistic, but its a game and I like the view.

Indeed... Just looking at those laser turrets is just scary. Hate to be the one targeted by those and not be aware of it. Gonna be a pretty cool death animation once hit!

This is likely one of the most asinine questions ever asked on the boards... but what about trees and forests? While BCM is definately one of the most jaw-dropping sims I've ever seen, I just wonder about the "emptiness" and "flatness" of the planet surfaces I've seen in the released screenshots so far. Like Mt. Olympus on Mars (And its whole jagged canyon-covered surface)... is all of that actually rendered? Will forests or vast, sprawling cities on some planets? I'm guessing all of this are possible future updates, but I just wonder. The more detail, the better.

Good point, sorry SC, but the guy (or girl? dunno) is right. We need trees (optional, maybe?) For those who have a better CPU/VDO, that would be a great extra.

There is supposed to be support for forest planets and other stuff(BCM Beta Version Control File). Cool!

quote:

New PTE-II terrain engine implemented as a first pass WIP release. Some notes:

-New terrain supports a variety of planet types, including a new 'forest' type.

-New terrain supports a variety of weather and wind conditions, which are enabled by on climate zone patterns.

-New terrain supports land, water, underground and underwater areas.

-New terrain supports gas giants and some with molten or frozen cores. In a gas giant, you will never get to the core if it doesn't have one. e.g Jupiter does not have a core, but its moons, IO, Europa and some others, do.

-Compounds are now refered to as 'scenes'......

-A few mission zone and scene areas have been created on Earth, Mars and the Moon. A script will later be written to autogenerate others needed for the planets/moons which are populated.


SC, I have to comment to all the hard work you and all the 3000ad Team have been churning out. Keep it coming! Can't wait, man!
