 Jan 29 awarded Yearling Jan 29 awarded Yearling Sep 24 awarded Autobiographer Jan 29 awarded Yearling Jan 16 comment Why translation uses multiplication and not addition? I think you mean "matrix multiplication is non-commutative" (or, in general, affine transformation is non-commutative) rather than "matrices are associative". Oct 29 awarded Quorum Sep 18 comment Method for interpolation between 3+ quaternions? Indeed. This is related to interpolating on the sphere Sep 6 comment In A star, what is the point of recalculating the best path? No, because the different between `F(P)` and `G(P)` is just `H(P)` which is assumed constant. Sep 6 comment In A star, what is the point of recalculating the best path? An easy example of an non-consistent heuristic is to consider movement when you have different terrains and a complete graph on suitably placed points. `h(P) = the cost of going from P to the target` is an admissible but non-consistent heuristic. Sep 6 answered In A star, what is the point of recalculating the best path? Sep 6 comment In A star, what is the point of recalculating the best path? You're making a big assumption, because OP hasn't said anything about his heuristic. For all we know, it's not even admissible. Jul 22 awarded Citizen Patrol Jun 29 comment What benefits does a game design degree have for a hobby game programmer? @kurtzbot, is that also true in Malaysia? It's always worth checking OP's profile before assuming they're in the same country as you. Jun 26 comment Manipulating Perlin Noise For veins, have you tried having two cutoffs (i.e. using an intermediate range rather than an extreme)? Jun 10 awarded Caucus May 14 comment How much is java used in 2d/3d indie games? (before/after Minecraft) @JCM, it will still be using Java on the back end, and I wouldn't be surprised if the JS/WebGL front end is produced by source-to-source translation from Java (à la GWT, but given Jagex's NIH culture probably not actually GWT). May 7 comment Is it legal to reuse a 3D model as long as it has a new texture? That's still technically a derived work. May 3 comment What is the rationale behind this method of computing the w-component from MD5 mesh files? @pcapp, you could add logging to that branch, but I think it's less about mitigating bad input and more about not getting `NaN` when rounding causes t to be something like `-1E-9`.
