Re: Paper on efficent shadow maps for many lights

Thanks guys! Of course I am the typical long time lurker who wasn't lucky enough to back during the kickstarter campaign but I digress. I went on a bit of a research binge after being impressed by a video yesterday on Nvidias new grass simulation https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kLVa0NOFdwM and re-discovered this bit of high quality research that I thought may be of use to our friend graphics Josh. I am glad that already people here find it interesting; a great fanbase seems to have been assembled here! :D

Very, very nice! I'd like to point out that those are point lights and not volumetric lights, but other than that... :thumbup:

*brofist* I was one of those too - long-time lurker that couldn't back. I'm glad I came out of hiding, though. You'll like these guys - LT tends to attract intellectuals.

Welcome!! I hope you stick around - would love to see more of you. :)

And people who just bumped into LT by accident and at the time weren't aware of what procedural generation could do. But they loved the idea of a new space game, and fell in love with the dev updates and community. :oops: :angel:

I merely meant "people who like talkin' 'bout thinky stuffs" - Flat, for instance. :P Cornflakes. Hyperion. It does attract that type. It's not the only type, but, hey. I'm sure most of you enjoy reading it from time to time, even if you don't actively participate. :P I do that. Sometimes I jump in, but usually I'm content just to watch.

Besides. I'm fairly positive that all of you guys possess a greater-than-average intelligence. The Bay12 community is mostly the same way.

All I could think was, "what's the difference between a pseudo-intellectual poseur and the regular intellectual poseur?"

:think:

At any rate... efficient shadow maps! Dynamic lighting from mobile light sources in the world! Do want.
I think the difference is similar to an academic and a pseudo-academic. Many people write what they think is in an academic sense because it uses overly formal language, while true academic language sticks to concise expression.

I am merely a high-caliber idiot, my ramblings are just noise. I'm glad you enjoy them though. :D

Also, pretty grass, weird coloring/lighting/texture though... like the uncanny valley effect for grass.
