Firesphere Project

Project for Shader Programming class in Hagenberg.

We wanted to create a spherical object with a distorted surface. Distortion was to be created using perlin noise and depending on height we would apply colors from the texture. By making the noise time-dependent, the surface would be constantly changing. By varying parameters and using different textures, different effects could be achieved.

Our main idea was to get an effect of a magma-surfaced planet. As a background we used space texture implemented as a skybox.

Additionally, we added shortcuts for the user to be able to manipulate the simulation.

TWIL stands for This Week I Learned (TWIL). However, this is more like a LWIL (Last Week I Learned) or maybe PWIL (Previous Week I Learned) 😀 There was a Game Access conference in Brno and I was too busy preparing/attending. So I hope you forgive me and enjoy still enjoy this TWIL even though it’s a week old.

Every week I read a bunch of articles, watch videos, chat with people, discover new websites, tools, games, books and then some. This amounts to a lot of new information to absorb. So I figured why not write it down and make a summary every now and then to keep track of it all? That’s This Week I Learned (TWIL) in a nutshell. And what did you learn this week? 🙂

This is an Extra TWIL this week, there is so much to share 😀
