superbe panneau promotionnel vu sur le boulevard anspach: simple, clair, et la photo rappelle certainement qqle chose à tout le monde

just finished a demo of boids with all major modifiers showcased: sources, targets & ... colliders!!! it's not yet the level of performance i'm aiming at, but the drop in fps is due to shadow processing, not to my code (ouf!)

eventually! i have a decent algorithm to register a box in a grid: starting at the first point, a serie of positions are generated in the box depending on the size of the box and size of cells
No more 3d collisions, just a simple value to adjust (subdivision) to increase the quality (and increase the cpu load...) - this step is finished! yiipiiieeeee

OMG! the new version of will rock! We have tested this example today at (github.com/Calinou/godot-refle). V4, the master branch of godot repository, is sure not ready for production, but the evolution of the render quality is already mesmerizing.
(there are jpeg compression glitches, see hd here: polymorph.cool/2021/02/20/volu)

I will never go back to tools like OF or processing.org: it's far better to use a fast programming language to prototype your algorithm, with the same concepts as the one you will use after (c++ in this case), tune it, and see quickly were it fails before turning it into exec. To program 3d, is great

fast box registration in a grid: it is far from perfect, but same code can also be used for collision, more precise than grid registration
it's great to be able to prototype algorithm in gdscript > you work on code while it's running: i've made a livecoding perf for myself all day :)

thanks to a smart nesting of objects, sources can compute the closest targets for each boid and send it to it

Here comes Anthony, our latest release! German based Korean designer Sun Young Oh created Anthony as an homage to the British sculptor Anthony Caro. The form of this typeface comes from his sculptures that are leaning against each other.
