Title: [RESOLVED] Seamless
Post by: OuterNet on Oct 10, 11, 05:07:00 PM
Say I have a ship in space and want to explore the world below.  Is it possible to allow the player to choose between physically landing the ship on the planet using Seamless 2.0 OR leaving the ship in orbit and choosing the loading screen to be "beamed" to the planet?

say heightmap1 is your space area the ship flys thru.. and heightmap2 is a seemless planet area you could "land direct"..
i would prolly look at making a few areas and different skyboxes to give it a look of passing into the atmosphere
might look into landing windows info real space landings you need to hit a specific window and approach set up to land at a specified spot i am assuming you dont want tons of ships to be able to land at every avail planet heightmap?
or in heightmap 1 you have a trigger area to use as a beam to planet loading screen or movie of a landing then port to planet spot?
or a space station with a shuttle to ground option etc etc..
just a few ideas to chew on
