Archive for the ‘blending’ tag
Pulled in the LAND record’s VHGT sub-record and now have terrain rendering in LxMorrowind:
Admittedly, it looks a bit odd without any water yet…
Added in a fixed semi-transparent plane at Z=0 for the water as well as adding support for the LTEX sub-record (i.e. texturing), though it’s not yet selecting the right textures and is instead applying the same texture to the whole exterior cell landscape:
Not right yet, as the brick texture doesn’t seem like it should belong there (an indexing problem? an orientation problem?) – but the landscape code is now loading multiple textures as well as blending them together at the seams (TES3 supports up to two textures being blended. LxMorrowind will blend three – blending all four at the corners would have required 9 texture units in the worst case given the current implementation, so I stuck with three for the time being).
Also, I’m simultaneously working on the physics aspect of this viewer app. I should write a post on “Collision Detection vs. Physics Simulation”…
