RE: Lucius
its room based.. inner walls of the room are one with roof and floor.
All the objects are added after that and outer walls of the mansion after that.

The rooms are separate so we can hide them when they are not visible.
When the player goes upstairs all the unneeded downstairs stuff disappear etc..

Almost every item in the game is a dynamic item and u can pick them up etc.
We have noticed that this has produced some performance issues because there are so much draw calls.
With that said the game still seems to be running very well.

With highest settings that it has and 1280x720resolution
my minimum fps is around 50-60fps and can easily get as high as 120fps.
My computer specs: Gtx275, E6750 2.6ghz and 4g of ram

That's my five cents of it.

I've just seen something on screen above. Look at the clock. It's 3 o'clock. But sun lights from window are orange, it should be later time. But it's only detail. wink

Calculating visibility in height stages. below x height render, higher and lower than x height render higher than x render(for floors above second)?

Makes me also wonder, if you can background stream another .world file without loading it entierly? If so this could be what they are doing as well.

Also placing some box objects, surround each floor with a cube, tell the renderer to only draw the floors while inside one box.

or using object params to read what types they have and only render them when in player is in certain height etc. lots of ways to do this I guess?

RE: Lucius
yeah.. no streaming or or box system yet.
if needed then we will probably add the box system that notices stuff..
we also have some manual parameter objects that we wont want to hide..
like in stairs etc..
there are some time to time distance/height checks etc.
no rocket science there.

I've been checking out the films and what I can say is, You have done a very good job b1s. The game looks very nice and professional made.

Keep your project going!

You get 10 of 10 from me.

Ps, I liked this outdoor senen: ::Img::

What setup do you use ? HDR, Bloom etc.
