Is there a way to serialize OcTrees?
I currently have a converted heightmap with nearly 32k Triangles. Without an octree this isnt useable, but, construction the octree needs around 1 minute, that I don't want so spend everytime I start a new Map :P
I tested it against a smaller map, with and without octree, it doesn't make a too big difference in memoryuseage. (Small map (3200 triangles) without octree uses 104MB B RAM, Big Map (32k triangles) with octree uses 116 MB ram. I could split the map into several smaller parts and only display those, that I see, but the memoryuseage would be the same I think. So it would be realy cool, to save the OcTree into a file, or better, Build a containerobject, where you can add an Object3D and a OcTree and Serialize them together =)
Dunno if it is doable, but it would save alot of time doing the same thing over and over again.

Octree implements java.io.Serializable, so you should be able to serialize it using Java's standard serialization methods.

\o/

Edit: Works great. Sorry, I looked for a method in OcTree to export or serialize and didn't look up the Javadoc :(
