Seamless transition from space to planetside
Hello everyone! Neat engine and good community!



Do you think this is doable with Esenthel?

The idea is to have a the robust first person space sim feel and have just as deep a planetside experience. You see a planet you land and you get out and have adventures. You board your ship and fly back out into space.

Esenthel is attractive in this pursuit because of its limitless world feature (among other things)

A cross between Freelancer and Eve with Planetside.

You guys think this is doable?

We have already loaded globe algorithms, if you could put cam to surface and gravity to surface also load only visible on the globe, then it is probably possible.

Possible, but will take some fancy programming. Also, you might run into some view range limitations, as well as floating point inaccuracies(among others). The iNovae engine was specifically designed from the ground up for the purpose of that kind of game, Esenthel was not.
