Hi, i am beginer with Irrlicht, and trying to create day/night loop with sky hemisphere (half sphere).Project for now is named "ATMOsphere" and it's my first work with Irrlicht.
I choose this work as my term paper at university, so it must by finished until july.
My main goals are:
create dynamicaly textured hemisphere with sky color which depend from sun position/day time(gradient colors from day time based palette). Also to set ambient acording to time(maybe dynamic light).Later (not on term paper) maybe add clouds layer, make sky color depend from year time (on winter darker,on sumer nice clear sky,random weather generator) and maybe add weather efects(rain,snow).
For now, in two days (i hate debuging) i made buildin hemisphere custom scene node and dynamicaly (refreshes on given time interval) generated sky texture from sky colors palette. This work slowly (i have full time job and studies) ,but will be finished,because i need my mark.
when i have something interesting to show i'll write here (after two weaks,now exams...).
I hope you will help me when i need
Now i'm reading forums, manual and trying to make something...
I have some good and some bad news
. Good is that i released source and demo. Bad - project is unfinished and almost without coments, also untidy code
. I took academic holiday and don't have time and desire. But i plan to finish it next year, after my holiday. Now it is only with sun, no moon, but you can add moon formulas from here
Also you can add light to sun position.
