You ran out of energy because you tried to build too much. You need to switch of building that experimental and turn off the radar for a bit...

I don't know WTF that is, but it isn't either of what I expected:

STL structure that is essentially a resizable array, OR

A measure of something encompassing both magnitude and direction

Yes, yes we do...

 

Oh man, after a whole week of frustratingly trying to make a nice looking holotiles... how to make the same effect 2d is the challenge now, maybe keep it 3d but simplify the geometry and green all of the vectors to make a really awesome "battle- tanks" wargame feel... but this looks awesome.

vectors are all those triangles you see everywhere. basicaly thats what everything is made out of. if you were to mak a flat 2d square, it would realy be 2 triangles that formed that shap.

Those are polygons, vectors in 3D at least are directions with a derived length.

Guy hows that meant to be a hack your not really going to get the edge over anyone.

Looks like we will see a lot of screen shots of vectors in screenshots of people editing mods and what not.

Which is the point of this thread? I feel that there is something more to that pic but I seem to fail understand it.

Quoting Wintersong,

I guess brad was just playing with a wireframe mode and thought he'd post a screenshot because its farily interesting to see. You get to see how detailed thier meshes are, how the world is built - how terrain features work things like that. At the same time Gamespot can't use it to show off the "tight" or "dated" or "mixed bag" graphics that press types describe all aspects of a game as.

 

Descriptions:

Tight

Dated

Mixed Bag

 

Effectors:

Compelling

Visceral

 

So i would say the screenshot he posted was a compelling mixed bag personally.

Funny screenshot.

 

BTW, the Vectors were my favorite team in Projectyle.

Go, Vectors, go!

Bah, now I feel old again.

...are you saying that some of the graphics in the game is vector-based?

If so, I just got a raging hadron.
