comment How can I include vertex color information in .OBJ files?
@NickWiggill PLY is not necessarily a good choice -- maybe you haven't heard of it for good reason. It's much more complex than OBJ and it allows more flexibility than one would reasonably need to use for a static model. If you need additional flexibility, maybe you should use a more popular file format with well-established parsers, such as COLLADA

Oh, I see. They tacked on the per-vertex color as 3 floats after the v vertex position specification. Clever way to (hopefully) not break compatibility with existing OBJ parsers.

comment How can I implement a “fast-forward” feature in my game?
If you are going to use the higher simulation rate approach, and you want to support slowdown, you probably need to actually have an extremely slow base simulation rate, then run that by default at like 100 simulation steps/frame.

This is a great tool. I had been fiddling around in Grapher recently, of all things.

comment Is it possible to create an “impossible” rooms in games?
@concept3d You can have 3d projections of n-dimensional figures, such as that animation of a tesseract on Wikipedia. 3D computer graphics are projections of 3-dimensional objects onto a 2-dimensional plane. To project a 4D object to a 2D computer screen, you have to project the shape into 3D first, then project that projection into the 2D space of the computer screen.

@concept3d If this isn't the answer, and he really is asking to "do the impossible even without any type of illusion", then we need to close this question as good ol' "not a real question"
