Lets fix our grid snapped vertex custom shader by introducing some improved lighting. Because we’re manipulating our objects geometry inside our shader the normals that are used to calculate lighting are incorrect.
Expanding upon our exploration of a shader that snaps vertices to a grid. This time we’re moving things into world space!
In this video I get to play with madness. We’ll be exploring what happens if you try to “pixelate” a 3D mesh using a vertex shader.
PowerToys adds a series of useful tools to your Windows computer including a color picker that lets you easily lookup the color of any pixel on your screen.
In this video we’re going to explore a way I approach reproducible pseudo-random number generation that uses calculated hashes to select a random item or property for an object.
A six degree of freedom (6DoF) system describes one where a player is able to freely move along the X, Y and Z axis as well as yaw, pitch and roll their rotation.
Unity provides a few operators that can make some common tasks with quaternions easier to accomplish. You can multiple a quaternion and vector to rotate the vector by the provided quaternion’s rotation or multiple two quaternions together in order to add the two rotations they represent together.
YAML (Yet Another Markup Language) provides a way to store structured data in files. It can be used in similar ways to other JSON or XML files and is commonly used with Kubernetes and Docker Compose.
Raycasts provide a way for you to project lines through your scenes and detect the objects they hit as well as return important information about what they hit.
I’ve recently been doing a lot of work on my website worldofzero.com in order to help launch the new version and improve the usability and accessibility of the site.
In C# Extension Methods provide a way to add additional functionality onto a type that you have created or imported into your project.
In order to create more accessible open source projects GitHub has introduced templates for Issues and Pull Requests to help improve the clarity and quality of new issues and open pull requests.
Font ligatures combine multiple characters into a single unique character. Some fonts provide ligatures specifically for software development.
Lets explore building a self steering ship that can automatically move out of the way of obstacles in it’s path.
Top-Level Programs is a new feature being introduced in C# 9.0 that significantly simplifies certain C# programs and allows you to remove almost all of the boilerplate code from them.
This July I’m trying something a bit different. We’re going to try to create complete projects each week of the month.
I’ve been exploring a few of the fun ways you can write text to a terminal. One of the more interesting commands available for this is tput.
Lets explore pathfinding by implementing Dijkstra’s Algorithm. Dijkstra’s Algorithm is a pathfinding algorithm that works by calculating the distance from any node in a graph to a target node.
Recently in a live stream we built “The Topic Wheel”/“Idea Wheel” with the goal being to create an interactive element for a stream that could display any number of options and select one of them.
Symbolic Links allow you to create a reference in your file system to another file or directory. This allows you to reference the same file in multiple places without having to physically copy it into each place.
