Bump-Mapping!
« on: May 31, 2014, 05:13:16 PM »
Hey Jack, i thought about this for a while... But i was thinking, maybe you could implement bump-mapping? That way it would make certain blocks pop out, let's say gold blocks (shading ETC).
I know we are talking far away about graphical stuff, but that's very simple of how it would work!
What i was thinking was, only have the bump-maps applied to corners of the blocks, and not the whole block, so it wouldn't look ugly.

What do you guys think? It would be toggle-able for slower PCs!

Since now we have shaders, we could also possibly have a little cute lens flare for the sun, have some butterflies fly around the map. Or maybe even have the leave blocks have grass waving effect, to fake wind?


Leave some ideas for graphical stuff below! :)

I like those ideas.
I have one where maybe stars in the sky have a glitter effect like in real life.

I think lens-flare could be modified like the motion blur, you could set it really high and have Star Trek worthy lens-flares, or set it low and have cute little baby lens-flares.
I've made some stuff for terrablox, but I'm too lazy to link to much of it.

There is always a way to create lens flares. You could actually do this with surfaces and a little trick with camera projection a false coordinates (for the invisible sun lol) and this can create lens flares!

Uhh... No. We have shaders. We don't need to make the game less optimized than it is.

Lens flares effect is probably the easiest one to do! :P
