Image Description, by
This is a shot from the techdemo of an alpha version of my Irrlicht-Engine.
It's a small 3D engine I'm currently working on. It uses DirectX8 but can be
extended with other APIs, like OpenGL. It has features like most other 3d
engines, like fast bsp-tree based indoor rendering, transparency, particle
systems, dynamic light and so on, but also provides build in Alias Wavefront
Maya and Quake2 mesh import, and - our grafic artists will love it - direct
PhotoShop .psd file import as Textures with alphachannel, if needed.
Because im just a programmer and not a 3D-Artist, the indoor level you can
see on the shot and in the techdemo is created at runtime, based on a
Wolfenstein-like 2D map, from a simple textfile. The most difficult part to
code was the ceiling.
When the engine is complete, I will make a DLL and a easy-to-use SDK, so my
engine is free of charge for using in your own games.
The techdemo can be downloaded at my homepage, www.code3d.com.
