Not sure where to go from here. I'm not 100% about the quad tri system anymore. The T Junctions are starting to concern me a bit. I need to get some more motivation. I'll be studying lighting techniques... since I've never done it before. I haven't really been working on it much lately because I haven't been able to think of what to work on. For some reason I don't think it's quite at the state to apply to a planet. Maybe I just need to do some refactoring. Current list of things that need to be done 'right':

  • Culling
  • Proper thread based subdivision
  • Texturing
  • Lighting
  • Add Quad/Oct tree for faster collision
  • Water
  • Clouds
  • Atmosphere
  • Stars
  • Sun
  • Foliage

I need to stop complaining about something to do and just do something. For now you just get furry terrain.
