Editor Random Rotation and Scale

CaffeinatedGuy 101 Apr 22, 2009 at 14:00


Well I was playing around with a new feature I added to editor so when you place an object you can specify a range to randomly rotate and scale it. I ended up just clicking down a bunch of statues and playing with the new lighting system. I thought it looked pretty cool so I thought I would share.

Here is some info about the shot:

Editor is a custom editor built in C# and .net. It uses the in game engine to display 3d through a Managed C++ wrapper.

I was running debug and getting 60 fps but since it is the same model the direct 3d instancing is really fast.

Here is a link to the Blog entry on the Caffeinated Games site:
