Very cool! Thanks for taking it into account. grin

Here's a nice example from Gandaldf, creator of the the b3d exporter for blender.
<!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://www.gandaldf.com/">http://www.gandaldf.com/</a><!-- m -->
This zip includes the b3d file with its textures+lightmaps and a small b3d executable showing the level created, textured an dlightmapped in blender and exported as .b3d. Grab it here:

wow! I just ran into some great news! Giles has gone freeware! Giles is one of the most incredible Lightmappers available and exports seamlessly as b3d!

From Giles website:
Quote:We're pleased to announce that gile[s] is now free to use! Get it here:
<!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://www.frecle.net/index.php?show=giles.download">http://www.frecle.net/index.php?show=giles.download</a><!-- m -->

You can use the following code to activate the full version.
Registration name: Freeware
Registration code: GLS-7781-C787-C274

We hope you will find a use for it in your games and experiments.
We will still be updating it occasionally, so feel free to suggest improvements and report bugs!

Thanks to one and all who bought and helped improve gile[s] over the years! It's been a lot of fun!

If there's a "Tools" section in this forum I'll post it there as well. This is a must-have tool!

regards,

Alvaro

Re: Greetings to the forum
I also posted your engine today at Irrlicht's "tools" forums:
<!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://irrlicht.sourceforge.net/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?p=183327#183327">http://irrlicht.sourceforge.net/phpBB2/ ... 327#183327</a><!-- m -->

I'm sure it will grab the attention of many, specially the ones that are into shaders with Irrlicht. wink Specially this user's attention, who's doing a great job implementing HLSL shaders in Irrlicht:

Re: Greetings to the forum
well i only posted an onrpgs forums which have a development section, but since its a gamer community its mostly people with unrealistic dreams about creating there own mmo, so i am afraid that only a few people would actually take the time to learn C++ and start doing something about it... most of them gives up, when the realise it cant be done within hours -.-'

also posted on another forum, but i forgot which one it was (i visit a lot of forums pfft)

anyway, see your doing a great job on this thing grin
nice to see grin

Re: Greetings to the forum
I've added the requested support for lightmaps and B3D format (you can download it in the latest SDK)
the link which you gave me <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://files.wildspad.com/afecelis/esenthel/b3d/Sewer.zip">http://files.wildspad.com/afecelis/esen ... /Sewer.zip</a><!-- m --> works fine, however I haven't tested the new features with other .b3d files, let me know if something won't work, thanks!
