I took that whole project apart and looked over the parts that interested me. It is your code that was the beginnings, and so cant escape the genetic similarities. i dont use your atmospheric scattering because i couldnt understand it, though it is a very similar procedure now that i do (rayleigh/mie). Same for the grass. Your notes are especially useful in your code, btw. I read the code and the GPU Gems article it was based on. Then wrote my own.
I dont like using other peoples code in this project. If i dont understand it i cant fix it or change it to my own liking. It may have taken me months to achieve what has already been achieved, but now i see the math in action and dictate its state.
The past 3, 4, 5 years Ive become something of a mathematician. Software dev is one thing, game dev is especially oriented on advanced/higher math than usual. I have to say I find a good paper or article unfathomably interesting these days.
Im pretty sure this is my third year writing this particular game. Who even knows anymore. i just work on it day by day or when i can, no “goal” date, but i would be really angry with myself right now had i not started at all.
Sometimes i make right decisions, sometimes i spend an annoyingly long time making the wrong ones. Tomorrow is another day. i have no goal date. id just rather spend my time learning the universal language than whatever the hell everyone else is doing. We live in a fucked up world, people. walk away. just walk away. Nobody cares if justin kissed his god damn wife. why is this even news!!! get off my screeeeeeennn!!!
