Marble marcher

I don't know if this post should fall into the games subforum - feel free to move it in case.
I just saw this video about a game that uses a clever math to make objects interact with fractals. It is open source too.

Re: Terrain Texturing

Justin stumbled upon this website providing some textures (CC license) for the solar system. Apparently used in some oolite mods.

Re: System names generation - Italian variant

@GunChleoc I'm sorry, I've been a bit busy with work, but I don't get to see how this openttd mod works. Is there some source code to read? I don't have openttd, am I supposed to download it and then install the mod? Or can I download it somewhere/somehow? This looks interesting, so you're saying th...

Re: System names generation - Italian variant

I understand @impaktor 's stance. However, the naming system requires an overhaul. If the dev team feels that the little things we're working on move in the desired direction, it might be worth putting in a little effort to get this into master. I have little experience in the c++ side, but maybe th...

Re: System names generation - Italian variant

Honestly, I kept the French accents and "cedille" ç. If you work with utf8 files there should be no problem, so do as you seem fit (font rendering code aside). Maybe in 1200 years they will reform orthography... or not :)

Re: System names generation - Italian variant

Great :) so the main steps are: Get a list of cities/towns in your language. For example I got the Italian and French ones from a site of the interior ministry of the two governments. It should be reasonably large because we need some statistics, it would be great to have at least about a thousand n...

Re: System names generation - Italian variant

Small update: I'm cleaning up the French database, I'm still unsatisfied with some syllables. I have some encouraging results though: System Name: chagennirac System Name: seval System Name: litiliers System Name: segne System Name: bortregy System Name: forron System Name: borly System Name: fonval...

Re: System names generation - Italian variant

Yes, I agree, this is basically a first draft where I am running a few tests. Maybe some other italian speaking people can offer some suggestions. Those test prefixes are probably best for starports/stations, and I would not use them as they are now, they are just an idea of what can be done to impr...
