Random development screenshots.

Recommended Posts

I will just use this thread to post random pics from stuff we have been doing.


These are fairly recent pics at the time of posting, but not always the latest builds.

I won't bother giving much info about the pics, they are just random screenshots I take while working on stuff (that I think are perrty). I can provide more info if anyone asks though.



On an unrelated note, we could always use help with the mod. PM Stoiss or Me if you are interested. You can also contact us on discord #warzone channel.

Am I...Looking at a Jedi Academy map!? *Sees Boba Fett and a Youngling model* Oh....WOW!

Very, very nice. What are you using to generate terrain? As far as I have been looking around, terrain in GTK radiant is a pain in the neck.

The only answer should have been: Text Editor and a compiler. :P

Nevertheless, great work.

 

That *is* how the rest of it was done. (literally) :)

 

Notepad > Radiant for usability.

Can you elaborate on large map support?

WzMap increases nearly all the BSP limits by a lot. So map size is really only limited by RAM on the compiling machine, some max map size limits in the game code, and a few int's changed to uint32's also in the game code (index counts of verts arrays, etc - uint32's remain backwards compatible with JKA bsp, i didn't want to change the bsp data format itself).

But how does WZ handle larger, outdoor maps performance-wise?

 

That is hard to answer, it all depends on hardware. Warzone is targeted at modern hardware. In general though the forest maps are faster then newer JKA maps because most of the map is merged into single draw calls, unlike JKA maps where the shaders are so varied and a lot have many stages causing multiple draws of the same surfaces. Wz also has a few tweaks like adding <originalTextureName>_g.jpg to add glows while drawing the original surface, skipping a bunch of tiny draw calls completely.

 

For me the scarif map runs at 130 - 200ish fps, but I have a GTX 1070. Wz will max out your graphics card because of the tweaks done to CPU usage throughout the game (and because it does as much as possible on the GPU, skipping rend2 everywhere it possibly can), so performance of your video card matters much more than your CPU.

 

People with 2gb vram era graphics cards might struggle, but anything newer should run ok, although everything has cvars to adjust or turn off.

 

Here's a few of the optimization cvars for older hardware:

* shadows are costly [r_sunlightmode 1 will turn them off, or r_shadowblur 0 will speed them up, r_shadowBlurWidth and r_shadowBlurStep can also be used to keep the blur but adjust for speed/quality] - note that shadows draw the scene up to 4 times per frame regardless of blur settings

* volumetric light can be costly [r_bloom 1 to turn off volumetrics and use standard bloom, or 0 to just use normal dglows]. The sun will always, however, be a volumetric light (for now).

* theres also a generic performance cvar, [r_lowvram 1 will adjust stuff to fit into 2gb vram, and r_lowvram 2 will try to adjust everything to try to fit into 1gb vram], but I have not tested these on old cards to be able to give any actual performance measurements. These cvars scale down textures and frame buffer sizes (of effects like vlight, etc) to save vram and reduce the number of pixels effects are done against.

 

These are a few I can think of off the top of my head, but everything has cvars, so i'm pretty sure it would be possible to make nearly any computer playable.

 

On a related note, last night I was working on a new experimental occlusion culling method that simply scans forward using simple quad draws at various ranges from the viewer to find the furthest visible pixel distance, which will allow rend2 to skip a crapload of map geometry completely during render and make the q3 vis system basicly obsolete. It is currently working, pretty good for indoor maps, but on outdoor maps still needs some tweaking (being able to skip sky pixels, etc, I need to work out how to modify the depth buffer to move sky pixel depths to the camera position before doing the scans). I'm sort of amazed that no-one has thought of this before.

The new roads/paths system, changes to the GLSL grass system, and the new night time moon system.


The grass and roads systems.


* With the grass system changes, in the mapInfo ini file, grassImage0 -> grassImage2 are used most of the time. grassImage3 -> grassImage9 are used in patches based on the grass map image (usually the default grass map will suit any map, but you could use your own). If any are not specified, grassImage0 is reused for the other options by default.


Black on the generated road map means bad slope or object for a road.

Blue shows water.

Green shows height of that position.

 

Here's an example mapInfo ini section for grass system:

[GRASS]
GRASS_ENABLED=1
GRASS_DENSITY=2
GRASS_HEIGHT=56.0
GRASS_DISTANCE=3072
GRASS_DISTANCE_FROM_ROADS=0.25
grassImage0=models/warzone/foliage/newgrass2
grassImage1=models/warzone/foliage/newgrass3
grassImage2=models/warzone/foliage/newgrass4
grassImage3=models/warzone/foliage/plant87
grassImage4=models/warzone/foliage/plant89
grassImage5=models/warzone/foliage/plant21
grassImage6=models/warzone/foliage/plant13
grassImage7=models/warzone/foliage/plant09
grassImage8=models/warzone/foliage/plant13
grassImage9=models/warzone/foliage/plant01
seaGrassImage=models/warzone/foliage/seagrass

* With the new road/path system, all the mapper has to do is run an in game command (/genroadmap) to generate the map, and draw red lines on it for roads. Grasses, etc will not be drawn on roads.



... And example road map:

The moon/planet system.


* With the new procedural moon/planet system, the moon rotates based on the setting in the mapInfo file. You can also specify everything needed to change the looks of the moon.

Here is an example mapInfo ini section:

[MOON]
// moonImage changes the basic look/surface-pattern of the moon. It is not a diffuse image.
moonImage=gfx/random
MOON_COLOR_R=0.2
MOON_COLOR_G=0.2
MOON_COLOR_B=0.2
MOON_ATMOSPHERE_COLOR_R=1.0
MOON_ATMOSPHERE_COLOR_G=1.0
MOON_ATMOSPHERE_COLOR_B=1.0
MOON_GLOW_STRENGTH=0.5
MOON_ROTATION_RATE=0.08

... and some (really basic - I just adjusted the base colors) screenshots:

And here's a full example mapInfo file for this test map, showing nearly all the current options a mapper can specify (note you can reload mapinfo in game in realtime to change settings using /reloadmapinfo):

//
// note: I am in the process of moving most cvars to mapInfo settings so they can be specified per map to let mappers customize how everything looks to suit their map.

// MAP_GLOW_MULTIPLIER can be used to adjust the strength/power of glows per map on all related post processes.

... and a few new random pics ...


 


These show the experimental screen space shadows, experimental water systems, splat mapping on terrain, updated render/texturing quality and lighting adjustments. Just random stuff i've been testing and adding.
