I guess the anticipation is finally getting to me ... in just about 5 days, I will be receiving my final undergraduate degree classification.

I'm pretty sure I've achieved one of the highest grades, and I felt comfortable with all of my exams but sometimes it gets a bit eerie being too calm.

All of my friends from other universities have their results, and results days are different depending on department at my university so I've seen some of my friends get their results and I'm super proud of them. I've bought my dress for graduation, my tickets and gown too so I'm pretty excited - just got to find out what grade I have finally.

 

I'm feeling the pressure as it's 4 years of hard work and even though I'm pretty much almost definitely going to do my masters (Their grade requirement was lower than any grades I've gotten before) - it would be really nice to have a comfortably nice undergraduate degree that I can just look back on and smile thinking of all the challenges I went through to get it

I've decided I want to attempt a rather ambitious and otherwise useless project. I'll post some details here once I make a bit more progress.

Alright so here's what I've gotten so far today. I want to make a shitty 3d game in Swing with software rendering. Similar limitations that oldschool runescape would have. So my goal for today was to come up with a basic 3d using Swing and basic java libraries only. With rotation and support for importing from obj files. So heres what I was able to come up with today.

 

https://i.gyazo.com/...819336ee7c3.mp4

https://i.gyazo.com/...b47578f13e3.mp4

  • Rotation around object
  • Object consisting of many triangles
  • Basic direction lighting
  • Changeable skybox

 

The terrain was supposed to be from https://free3d.com/3...ains-94652.html however the obj reader I wrote [bleep]ed up.

 

 

 

 

 

So right now I'm using a 3x3 matrix to support rotations however there isn't a real camera yet. So I need to switch to a 4x4 matrix and look up how to handle camera position how to handle fov and stuff like that. Obv I have no backface culling or anything yet

Looks awesome, Ring_World! Making a software renderer is a bunch of fun.

Translation is easy. You simply use a four-dimensional vector (x, y, z, 1.0) for a vertex position and multiple it by the 4x4 transformation matrix with the last row/column (depending on row column-major or row-major matrices) being the translation vector.

Projection transformations require dividing the xyz components by w after the transformation.

I think people use quaternions instead of matrices these days right? That's all I really know about 3D stuff. Sounds like a really fun and challenging project so keep up the good work. You've already gotten further than I probably could have

Congrats Maddy (whatever the classification). Gl with your masters!

Quaternions are used to represent rotations. They are generally converted into matrices before being used for rendering. For example, a Transform object may be composed of a scale vector, translation vector, and rotation quaternion, which are all combined into a matrix when concatenating transforms or transforming vertices.

Usually, you have the world matrix, which represents the objects transformation from model-space to world-space; the view matrix, which represents the transformation into camera-space from world-space; and the projection matrix, which transforms a point into normalized device coordinates (e.g., 0 to 1) after dividing by w.

I'll look into quaternions later, I'ved used them in unity before.

 

Right now I'll try out http://www.codinglab...ion_matrix.aspx for the camera

Heres the matrix class so far, I did I miss any obvious ones?

Damn, if that's a once in a lifetime experience, then I feel bad for you. About a monthly occurrence here. Saw 3 separate herds of elk just last week when driving to Stockholm. Does and foxes are so numerous that counting encounters would be pointless...

 

We also have freerunning lemmings and wolverines and everything.

No no, I've seen Deer before, and I'm sure I'll see them again (they're getting more and more common). I've just never had one run at me before.

 

It was a good three days actually. The day before I spotted a trio of bunnies that seemed to be playing tag in the street. When the game was up one of them came up the driveway and apparently didn't see me until he was like 6 ft away. Think he heard me move my foot while turing to watch him go by, and boy did he jump (dashed a metre, then decided it would be better to stay still). A day or two after the deer I was running alongside some bushes and almost ran over either ducklings or pheasantlings. The all started chirping in alarm and some of them nearly wandered into my path. Luckily, whichever type of bird they were momma must not have been nearby. I don't particularly relish the thought of an angry duck in my face, let alone a pheasant.

 

The only wildlife my dog cares about though are the squirrels. I caught one several mornings in a row eating on his kennel fence. I think it finally got the point, but several mornings in a row it would be there, the dog would spot it, then run over to it and start barking, then the squirrel would sequel and flee into the trees and spend 2 minutes chattering angrily at us. It's been a great summer for wildlife spotting. That said, I'm glad we didn't have pheasants when I was growing up. I think back to all hours spent crashing through the woods as a child, and if you did that here and now you'd probably have a heart attack at some point (where I grew up, there was a lot between me and my friend that while still forested, had been cleared of undergrowth, so it was easy to move around in. Doing that also meant no pheasants, since they would have had precious few places for cover.

On the minecraft server I play on, I tore up an old unfinished public project that no one had worked on for 2 months, only to find out today that someone else had been working on it in some minor way. When they asked about it on the discord, someone else (not me) was like "It's Tyler redoing it, and I think everyone was getting fed up with how shitty it looked."

I think I'm about to be at the center of some nice, juicy minecraft drama.  -_-


My skin is finally getting soft
I'll scrub until the damn thing comes off

Went to see the Royal Nova Scotia International Tattoo yesterday. I've not been to it in several years, but it's still a fantastic show. I looked it up afterwards, and I think it's the only (consistent) Tattoo in in Canada, and apparently is rather unique for the inclusion of of civilians and a focus on theatrics. Aside from the dancing, gymnastics, and motorcycles, you also get stuff like this (from 2010. The Land Force Atlantic Area Band, RCMP Ceremonial Troop, and Ceremonial Guard Band). Doesn't want to embed

 

The fog cleared just enough during the show to see the Mighty Ike carrier afterwards as well. They've got her moored out near the mouth of the harbour. None of our military piers are made for a ship quite that large  :?

Wish I could have made it to the Tattoo this year, sadly not. I did make it to Ottawa instead though, so that was kind of awesome.

I then proceeded to go out and spend way to much money, but it was a good night overall

Today I started watching Seraph of the End. The first episode was amazing, so I'm going to keep watching lol.

To be clear, my objection is specifically to direct download links. Please describe what is being downloaded, and link to the download/landing page, not directly to the file.

 

 

Started building a boat house for my Aunt today. Joint effort between a few members of the extended family, and a fair bit of fun too.
