New project software has been choosen (Unity 3)!

Post  janpec1000 on Sun Sep 12, 2010 12:45 pm

Here it comes next important decision within our development team. We have just left Shiva development community and switched to Unity.
Several main reasons why have we changed software:
- bad terrarin vegetation placing in Shiva engine. Vegetation placing depends on terrarin normal which makes trees and vegetation placed depending on terrarin Z normal (result is that plants dont grow upon sky but instead depending on terrarin shape)
- Primitive collision support with Shiva engine, which supports only basic colliders like box. (not really huge impact on decission but it has played role)
- ODE physix system, which doesnt give really best results
- No support for Xbox 360 and PS3 (yet)
- Documentation / tutorials not really perfectly suited for beginner





Unity 3 will support some decent rendering and graphic features which would be enough for our game to provide us next gen look.
