Support / Large Terrain Maps
« on: December 22, 2009, 10:03:51 pm »
In order to have a fairly large map, I need to have only a portion of the terrain in memory at a given time, and then update it as the user moves. I'm wondering whether it's better to : a) have a single object for the in-memory terrain and then add and subtract triangles from the sides as the user moves (is it possible to subtract triangles?); or b) divide the in-memory terrain into several chunks, each of which is a separate Object3D, and then when the user moves too far in a given direction, reposition these objects while deleting the chunks which are now well beyond the viewable area and adding new chunks on the other side. c) Is there a third option?

Support / Atmospheric haze
« on: December 21, 2009, 12:11:19 pm »
Since the built-in fog effect apparently works well only when the fog is 'black' (according to one of the files or wiki articles), what's the best way to produce atmospheric haze - i.e., making distant parts of the landscape look bluer? 

Support / Can we freely use CarTest for our own projects?

I've been looking at the examples which come with jPCT, and wondering whether it's permissible to use them (specifically CarTest) as the starting basis for projects? I.e. modify the code for a new project, including commercial ones?

Does JPCT allow a program to generate 3D objects at runtime?
