Occlusion Culling


I have read several posts telling there is a jme mod with occlusion culling, which has it so far not made it in to the main dev trunk. where can I get it, or have a lppk at the progress? I can's find any substance in the posts, no links, no files, nothing… Perhaps someone can point me in the right direction…

I wrote the mod. Why do you need it? Occlusion culling is very difficult to get right, in most cases, you’ll only lose performance. I would suggest you consider using alternatives, like BSP or Octree with PVS, as these are much more reliable.


I was able to recover the files from a backup of the Radakan server  :slight_smile:


It was made for jME 0.11, so you may need to make some changes so that it works under jME2.

You can find a test case here: http://www.jmonkeyengine.com/jmeforum/index.php?topic=6214.msg49968#msg49968

ah, I see, from what you mentioned, and from reading the testcase this is occusion culling based on occlusion queries, that's not what I was looking for.

I'm looking for an algorithm more similar to the one in Game programming gems or http://www.gamasutra.com/features/20020717/bacik_pfv.htm

So seems I'll have to do it myself. Thank you for trying to help out.
