WARTBED Architecture

0.1 "Clausewitz"
0.2 "Jomini"

The baseline WARTBED modules will feature regimental battlefield action in earth-like settings (meaning featuring aspects regonisably Terra-normal, such as undulating terrain, gravity and wind forces).

Rendering libraries

OGRE 3D is used for the underlying multi-platform rendering engine. There are several plug-in libraries for OGRE that might be of use for WARTBED's terrain rendering.

  • SkyX is a photorealistic sky and atmosphere rendering plug-in, replacing Caelum.
  • Hydrax is a plugin for rendering over- and underwater effects.
  • Myrddin Landscape Plugin is a complete OGRE scenegraph that handles terrain, sky and water rendering (although less gorgeously than SkyX or Hydrax).
