Re: How not to use casts [an ironical comment]

I'm currently looking more into modern C++ coding styles and I've got to say: Too many developers (not just random PPS students) write "C code with classes". You might want to call old style C++ "C code with classes" but in the days of C++11 we should definitely start looking into more safe and clev...

Re: Delta Time

Oh, I didn't know our physics engine is capped :oops: Anyway, as long as it's constant it doesn't matter. Well, just as a follow up: Fallout4 has sold over 1.2 million times on Steam in the first 24 hours since its release (including pre-orders). So even though this is a fuck-up, it's not damaging t...

Delta Time

When you develop on Orxonox you might have noticed that when we move around things in our world, we do so by multiplying with some delta time. Of course when we apply forces from the physics engine it's a bit different, but in the end proper simulation has to be sure how much time has passed between...

Re: What's new in core7?

Awesome x3n. Thanks for the contribution and for explaining the changes so clearly. Even I understood what's going on :P I have the same question as muemart. We have modules, libraries and plugins and sometimes the distinction doesn't really make sense (also not when looking at the directory tree). ...

Re: MasterserverFS15

Hey there, sounds cool. We recently had a small meeting and discussed the network/multiplayer module and there is definitely some work there. Maybe you can ask Sandro (smerkli) for advice for more ideas about this topic!

Re: PPS-FS15: Add / redo / enhance Particle Effects

Better graphics is always nice!

Cool tool. Seems to be perfect for this use. Too bad there doesn't seem to be a version that runs on Linux machines. I only found the code for the Ogre plugin, but not the editor itself.

Re: Quick-Reload of a Level (for Editors)

Awesome. Step by step, but easy solutions like these help a lot when we don't have an editor yet.

Re: Improved xml error reporting

That is amazing. The fact that buggy levels can't properly be debuged was already a running gag, not this is all a thing of the past. I'm sure this will boost our level creation a lot and also help to properly implement automatic level creation tools for certain parts of our levels.

Great work.

Re: Think Tank 2015

During the last PPS Convention several students have mentioned difficulties and issues. Maybe we can address those: Lagging AI Code Complexity Blender integration Game Over conditions Also I think several things are being worked on in almost every PPS. Maybe we can look at how these things actually ...

Re: Forum has been moved to new server

Since VSETH killed the last new server we didn't have a forum for a while. Now we have a new new server which is the same than the old new server, but without the gaping security holes. Anyway, here's the forum. We're going to move all of our Orxonox tools from the old to the new server in a while. ...
