RE: Arashia Tavern
First I want to show few more screenshots smile

I also run facebook page for project, please like if you want smile

But the most important thing I need some help. The problem are lights: As you see light look good in screen below but multiple light sources make great fps drop.

So I was thinking of alternate way, like lights without casting shadows, but then light penetrate through walls:

My question is, is there any way to stop lights penetrate through walls? Likie crop them to certain shape. Or something else. I have no idea how to face this problem. Meybe sombody know other way to improve performance with multiple lights?

Hi!

You should give your lights a smaller radius to increase performance. But regardless.. deferred rendering should allow maaaany lights. :( Esenthel?

RE: Arashia Tavern
Lights are expensive, even in deferred rendering mode, from my experience.

Things effecting fps with lighting:
  • The Light type - point lights are the worst offenders
  • Reduce the range of lights
  • Reduce the number of objects casting shadows - shadow maps are expensive
    I think its possible to extend the draw method to ignore this when Renderer()==RM_SHD_MAP for say given object types
  • Shadow map resolution, try lowering
  • Don't render lights if they can't be seen, lights within buildings can be conditionally rendered based on distance from player if they are not going to be seen from outside.

Really atmospheric feel, it's looking very good. Probably adding a day/night cycle would improve the feel even further.

It's looking very cool!

I always enjoyed games where the AI is just doing stuff, and you can focus on the more important tasks (Settlers especially).
Maybe because I am too lazy to micro-manage everything. Maybe because I like seeing people make their own decisions, creating a living environment. smile

That is what one would call a visual overhaul, looks really good except for the excessive bump levels. Overall very nice visuals. smile

Wow, really nice screenshots there!
One tip: I think the bump level of the floor in the fourth picture is a bit too high: Like that the floor would be difficult to walk on or place furniture wink
Great to see this update smile
