Hi there !
Is it accessible for Jmonkey to make larger scenes like Jurrasic World Evolution Game Level
or something like Hunger Games Level
, Is there a way to build these scenes without the need to do a ton of classes for just a Game Level , & if anyone knows a good tutorial to teach me more about the creation of larger scenes,I would appreciate that !
Thank you & sorry for that weird question
And note: ECS has nothing to do with managing a large scene itself but it’s about managing the large number of game objects that usually comes with a large scene.
“Large scene” needs to be better defined. It’s either big enough to fit in RAM or it needs to be paged as the player moves around. Another aspect is if it’s small enough to be accurate within floating point accuracy. (For example, a space game might have a small level from a RAM perspective but a large level from a coordinate perspective.)
IF: you want worlds bigger than can be loaded at one time
THEN: you need paging. There is nothing built in for that.
IF: you want worlds bigger than can accurately be represented in float (x,y,z > 65000 for sure… 6500 to be safe.)
THEN: you need to build your local view around the player from double-precision world data and it almost necessarily means you need paging.
There is nothing built into JME for this though there are some external libraries that help.
For what it’s worth, I build nearly all of my games/tech demos this way and each one has been a little different. So it’s not 100% clear how much JME even could provide in this area.
Game development is hard. Harder games are harder.
