Hello, you may now embed "gifv" simply by pasting the link (same as youtube). Enjoy!
Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

    It's a volumetrix pixel, but the easiest way to think of it is a "3D pixel". Imagine if the entire 3D world of a game was made up of tiny blocks instead of polygons. The smaller and more voxels you have, the finer and more realistic detail you get. If the voxels are huge you get something instead that looks like Minecraft.

    The idea behind voxel terrain in games is that if the terrain was made up of small enough voxels, you could dig and destroy it more realistically than you could with polygonal terrain.

    Most of the links in this thread won't work, but the pictures should give you a good example of what you can do with voxels: http://www.ogre3d.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=11&t=27394&sid=b855a4cab55875fdff00531cff068a09

    The Thermite3D engine is pretty cool to play around with as well: http://www.thermite3d.org/joomla/

    Yeah, Voxelstein. It's posted earlier on this very page.

    Had some crazy fun with this but now that people have figured out to cheat and it has become quite rampant, I think I might be done with this :x

    This guide might help newcomers, found it on /v/:
    Spoiler:

    Also is there anmy particular reason for the horizontal view bobbing? I think that's what made me most sick while playing, and I can't work out why it's there.

    This a really cool game, I like the shooter aspect but being able to create tunnels and bunkers to defend yourself really sets this apart.
    Just a few quick comments though

    1. Make the jump last a little longer, right now it's rather annoying to jump up a one block incline
    2. Fix looking down, it could make some people motion sick

    Man, this thread really isn't doing well. I played some more games of this, which I did even though I can only really play for a short time, and never near meals, because this game makes me motion sick. This should be seen as a testament to how good this game is. Making trenches, making forts, tunneling, counter-tunneling, counter-counter-tunneling, etc, all feels awesome, and it's a damned shame more games don't use this. The execution is far from perfect (network code is very unreliable, aforementioned motion sickness, everything going wavy once you look up or downm, strange camera), but the gameplay works well enough to excuse them.

    Some mods are here, which make the tools and grenades look a little better. Poke around that site and you'll find a few weapon skins too.

    I was interested at first, but hearing so many people say it's making them sick has made me lose interest.

    I'd recommend trying it. It's only small, and you'll know quickly if you're one of those that get motion sick.

    YES. THIS GAME.

    We now have shotguns, custom maps (cityfights!) and the ability to look at the floor without getting lost in time and space.

    servers are on main site, click one and go.
