I couldn’t find the search box so I am not sure if this has been posted before but after discovering that “No Man’s Sky” is based off a custom voxel engine, I was googling around and came across this:
Has anyone had any experience with it - not so much as a minecraft clone but fleshing it out into something else?
What other reading should I be doing on Voxels?
Voxels? Novalogic’s Comanche (that FM synth, tho) comes in my mind.
Voxel.js isn’t really a voxel engine, as it converts the voxels into meshes instead of using ray-tracing, so, it’s just a “cube rendering engine”.
It makes me sad how voxel turned into a generic term for “3D stuff made with cubes!”.
Oh, Wikipedia’s article is also a great read.
look up stuff about marching cubes
