Do want!

Btw, does that mean progress on ROAM again?

mid, it looks neat in a techy sort of way.

HUZZAH!

So apparently ZK needs new superweapons.

How's this look?

Unfinished, of course.
Obviously it is a catapult for launching rabid badgers.

LOS is represented by saturation, and radar coverage is represented by static noise. So areas that dont have radar coverage look like they have bad TV reception. Also, LOS areas dont get static noise, only areas without LOS or under jammer cover. Shadows rendered as well ofc.

Static noise not apparent on screenshot, looks nice and subtle ingame though.

What do you think about using desaturation for representing areas not under LOS?
Very nice job. I particularly like the desatured color for unseen area and bad reception for radar uncovered ones.

Smart idea, good work. Well done.

Put this packed in BA + remodels + skined chili ui and you have epic win soup.

Not to say this isn't the best thing since sliced chorizo Beherith, but what would be the odds of also desaturating the features out of los?? Then it would be even more epic.

Best thing would be to make it all lua accessible so different games can supply their own shaders :wink:

LOS = happy in pants

is there a significant performance hit?

Thanks for the feedback, guys!



That LOS thing is wicked sweet! I think this is the first time a game's done something this cool for LOS. We're breaking new ground here! :mrgreen:
Is the static noise thing animated? I.e., does it look like TV snow?

...I wonder what it'd look like if we plugged in the old bloom shader widget for fully-visible areas.

They already can, depending on your exact wishlist (as with any other file in a VFS archive, <game.sd{d,p,z,7}/shaders/*> will take precedence over base-content versions of the same name).

Ah I see, this may be the 'Achilles knee' of it.

Looks nice. I hope it is modular to the extent that a shader can be specified for all permutations of Radar, LOS, ALOS, Jamming and Sonar. Different sensor maps can be important in different games. For example a fantasy game might not even use radar and dislike the static effect with the fantasy setting. Another game may have a lot of usage of cloak without stealth which would make knowing your radar and los overlap important.

I recomend a simple first step. Make a jpeg, part it into four pieces, give every piece a seperate colour. Now you take a group of polys on your ship, take the square uvws and place it on of those squares. Now grab a one-picture-fits it all texture from the web and plug it into the square. There wasnt so hard, after all?
