Here is a shot experimenting with Tokomak Physics which is integrated into Jegas Game Classes

Physics Demo Physics Demo /2012-03-01 22:28/

JGC_PHYSICS integration wrapper for Tokomak Physics - This image is of the JGC RagDoll Demo and shows the JGC's Tokomak Physics animated, rigid and joints in action. The JGC is already integrated with Tokomak: Initialization, Timer Based Updates, and Animated and Rigid Body. Joints however are not integrated, but as this demo shows, its possible to call the Tokomak Physics API directly and mix and match how you access it: JGC or Directly - Use the right tool for the job.

Watch as an observer, various ragdolls falling down a staircase - OR - press one key to take the plunge yourself using the first-person point of view! Falling Objects - Simple concept - but definitely shows off the Tokomak Physics at work!

JGC_PHYSICS Example: Here we have the vehicular fun demo which uses the integrated JGC physics primitives for the vehicle bodies, and directly calls the Tokomak API to get both Sensor (Form of raycast) functionality for where the "wheels" touch the ground and joint functionality for the Semi. when you try the demo, get into the semi, hitch up the trailer (H Key) then press the DELETE Key to lift the SEMI up. Especially using different observer views.

Hawaii Kauai - USGS Hawaii Kauai - USGS /2012-03-01 22:28/

jgc_usgs USGSMapPaint Results: This shot is of the island Kauai in Hawaii. You are looking down on a 3D model containing well over a 600,000 poly here. How the shot was created:

  • Aquiring the USGS GRIDFLOAT format of the satellite heightmap data of the island. The data set is rather large.
  • A shader was selected for the texture blending: the shader used here supports four textures and blends them based on an alpha map.
  • Select three textures to splat the island (not four because I wanted to keep one available for roads later). Create a program that does only one function call: USGSMapPaint. This is the exe I run to "create" the alpha map for the shader.
  • Load the USGS height data into a game engine terrain system.
  • Load the textures: Sand, Grass, Rock and the Alpha Map created in step 5
  • Load Shader and apply to terrain
  • Take a screen shot because it looks neat!

this island is 20 miles across I believe, and this shot was taken after zooming really high up and looking down. I wonder how HIGH in feet or meters up you'd have to be in life to see that much of the island at once.

JGC_USGS Example of the USGSMapPaint function: This shot is one of my favorites. Look for the Hawaii Kauai island top view shot as a reference but this image is the alpha map used by the shader that did the texture splatting for that island shot. This graphic alpha map was created using a function located in the jgc_usgs.h file. It works like many terrain editors' Paint restraints: altitude, edge blending distance, angle restrictions - except its not a constraint! It allows you to procedurally paint the alpha map to your liking, and then use other tools for handpainting your particulars. Too much techno babble? Let me sum it up: The final result, that island shot, looks AWESOME! You should have seen it up close walking around in it!

Shaderless Shading Draft 01 Shaderless Shading Draft 01 /2012-03-01 22:29/

JGC_JMESH Example: Shaderless Shading Experiment using the JGC_JMESH terrain class - Final Result. I'm looking forward to revisiting this and getting things even smoother. I think with some modifications to the USGSMapPaint function, I should be able to devise an even higher "texture splatting" resolution. Note this technique is not TRUE texture splatting, and is actually a procedural mixing of textures that ultimately finish with "tiles" of textures you apply to your terrain. This technique does use more memory for texture data, however it frees up the GPU from constantly processing the same data redundantly. You have to consider your application, intended audience and intended graphics hardware to devise the best solution for your own games or applications.

California Volcano Rendered in Unity California Volcano Rendered in Unity /2012-03-01 22:39/

This is terrain created from a scaled down gray-scale bitmap I made with Sat Dat Splat. I didn't use the Unity native Raw16 height format because you can't adjust the scale. To get around that issue, I wrote some Unity javascript to load and apply grayscale images giving me full control of the scaling to get the proportions right. This is the result.

This image is a sealed up volcano located in California. I grabbed the image because of its peculiar round shape. I downloaded it, and then converted it to a gray-scale bitmap with Sat Dat Splat. After I converted it I re-sized the image with a graphics program to 1024x1024. I wrote code in the Unity game engine to read gray-scale height maps even though it does Raw16 format natively. The next image shows the results.

This is my favorite application of Sat Dat Splat to date! This is the Crytek Game Engine rendering the island of Kauai in the Hawaii islands. This is half scale. The island is a real 20 miles across. In Crytek I could only manage 10 miles across, rendering it at 50% scale. Even as a 50% scale island that is 10 miles across - the views offered are amazing. Walking the terrain "in game" I wouldn't even try. In a vehicle it takes awhile (as I only made dirt roads... no highways.) anyway, I think this pick really shows off what I mean when I say Sat Dat Splat...Because nobody makes terrain like Mother Nature.

Desired Size Field Desired Size Field /2012-03-01 22:39/

The desired size field allows you to make perfectly square output heightmaps and also allows you to keep heightmaps within the size capabilities of your target graphics engine. It doesn't not allow you to make images or raw heightmaps that are larger in any dimension than the source satellite image.

For example, Unity Game Engine has a maximum allowed size for Raw16 file imports of 4096. If you have a satellite image that is 6000x5000, you can set the Desired Size field to 4096 and get a 4096x4096 raw16 file as your result that is compatible.

Now there are some things you should know about the Desired Size field:

  • When the value is ZERO, it is ignored entirely and the full size of the satellite image in converted whether Raw16 or Bitmap.
  • If either dimension of the Satellite image is LESS THAN the Desired Size field, it is ignored entirely.
  • When the Desired Size field is validly below both dimensions of the satellite image, the data used for the output comes from the top left of the satellite image.

WE HAVE ARRIVED!

Now there is a bunch of stuff on the left, but I outlined the important tools to navigate around. also there is help on the USGS site for using their interface. By default, when you arrive the magnify tool is selected so anywhere you click on the map will cause it to CENTER on that location in your browser, and be drawn zoomed in.

Now there is a "SCALE TOOL" in the upper right of this page that works like the magnification tool in Google maps; in case you've seen that before. If not, it changes the zoom level of the map.

After you have zoomed in on an area you wish to download, you can use the "Download" tools. These are pointed out in the provided screen hot on the left here. You basically are allowed to drag a square over the region you wish to download and then the system bundles up your selection into a download or download batch (when multiple files requested do to size). I show how this looks in the next screen shot.

In the screen shot here, I'm selecting GRIDFLOAT file format from the list. You'll want to do the same.

While we are here I wanted to tell you about the other options you may have available to you. For example, the default Satellite data set is "1 Arc Second" but there is at least another I know is also available in GRIDFLOAT format and that is "1/3 Arc Second". The difference is resolution of the satellite imagery. 1 Arc Second I believe is the result of the satellite taking a radar "picture" to get the height elevation once per second as is flies overhead in orbit. 1/3 Arc Second is the same thing but at 3 times per second resulting in a much higher resolution "scan" of the earth's surface.

By changing which list item is checked in this "Modify Data Request" screen you can change the nature of your satellite images; just remember to change the file format to GRIDFLOAT so SAT DAT SPLAT can convert it.

Scale Field Scale Field /2012-03-01 22:42/

The Scale Field is a percentage value. It allows, as it name suggests, you to scale the output of the Satellite image. This is important when you are dealing with different graphics rendering software that doesn't give you a way to adjust the data you give it.

For an example, if you import a satellite rendered image as a raw16 into the Unity game engine, the landscape will often be unusually "tall" and appear disproportionate. By setting a scale factor of maybe 50 (50%) you can reimport the data and get better results. This is an iterative prospect, but once you find the "scaling sweetspot" for your graphics engine of choice, it will make the process much smoother.

Jegas, LLC Presents - Springli Alarm Jegas, LLC Presents - Springli Alarm /2012-03-01 22:48/

Springli Alarm allows Once-Only alarms as well as Recurring ones. The Recurring Alarm configuration is loosely modeled after a program called cron commonly found on Unix, Linux, and new Macintosh computers. The alarms are only fired if the program is running. (You are unable to shut it down or your computer, start them back up and get a littany of missed tasks - just so you know.) It's similar to Unix's and Linux's "cron" utilities in many respects except its meant to alert people not the PC. Windows Task Scheduler is better suited for that.

Springli Alarm needs to be running in order to get the Alarm notices. So, if you would like Springli Alarm to run all the time, copy your Springli Alarm Icon into your start up folder. We do not assume you'll want this so we don't do this for you like many software applications do; often when you didn't want them to.

So, below there is a mortgage payment reminder that is to go "Any Month", On the 1st of the Month, "Any Weekday", "At 9:00 am" with a message that will appear when the alarm goes off stating what the alarm is for. Creating an alarm will all asterisks will go off every minute; so you will likely want some non-wild or asterisk free options selected for each recurring event.
