just to make this clear: there are 6 block-side-types needed per material-type, like e.g. dirt, stone, wood etc.

it might also work with only 6 block-side-types in total but then you'd have to work with s2 cmd texture and local variables a lot which is really nasty to be honest.
also the definition files are there to be used them, so use use them!

I'm scripting Hight map based terrain generation and generating options menu you can see it in spoilers

You can name your world, change size in X and Z, set biome flat/forest/snow/hell, select gamemode survival/creative.
Also improved Trees

Still have some bugs which you can see on the image.

If you have some questions/ideas/comments, write

@user Assassin moder: Will you integrate NPCs like in Minecraft or will you invent your own NPCs?

Thanks, but my only problem is too low memory usage, it's use only 120MB /1024 MB ;/ so performance is too low, and i know that Blitz 3D use DirectX 7 .. anyway, I'm still upgrading it

EDIT: Already I have a Creeper model and animations, but this will be some kind of stealing.. you know.. btw. I will add them

What do you mean with that Better than Minecraft, why? Worse than Stranded II , I know but I try to remake SII adventure with blocks

EDIT: Already fixed terrain generation and added new tree type and some small bugfixes..

Min terrain size is 15x15 and max. is 50x50 (no stone level because this cause huge lag maybe only 3 layers of it)

Thatsss a nice mod You have here...

For the creeper equivalent: Because the model of the creeper was Notch's first try to make a pig, instable green creatures in form of blocky pigs would be nice, I think.

And bonuscookies, if the textures are easy to modify; it totally needs some lowres textures! √

Yes, mobs are planned but later, now I need to fix most important bugs and stuff and do some updates

Some low-res textures? Maybe no, but in future I will rename and put textures and icons into separated folder so it will be possible to make texture packs and for icons simple use Image Preview Creator which will be included

Oh... It looks great though. Pls upload it soon. It looks awesome

EDIT: AAAH! 1 ply worlds! When you destroy the ground blocks you can go through the ground and you fall into the ocean and you can't get up!

Maybe you could add some sort of bedrock at the bottom that can't be destroyed to prevent yourself from falling through the ground. It just makes the game feel incomplete and buggy, and wastes your progress if you happen to fall through the ground.
Maybe you could also add a depth setting so that you can choose how deep your world is.

p.s. I was reading a forum on how mine craft generates and renders so many cubes and it said
Quote:
The bulk of Minecraft's chunk rendering goes through a vertex array. The world is split into 16x16x16-block render-chunks (which currently happen to be the same as storage-chunks, but it wasn't always that way).

Each render-chunk is converted to a vertex array, and rendered. It uses OpenGL display lists (one per render-chunk) as an older alternative to VBOs. If any blocks in a render-chunk change, the entire vertex array and display list for that chunk are regenerated.


makes sense to me.

This site explains how it generates massive worlds. I don't know for sure that either of these can be replicated in stranded II, but it wouldn't hurt trying.

Also, I think there is some kind of multi-island feature on stranded II titanium which is the platform for your mod. It could be quite useful for generating larger terrains.
