Simulate planet atmosphere using billboard

Post by DK_PETER »

Could those of you trying the code please examine the ogre3D.log?
The example works in PB 5.43 and up...
I get this at the end of the Ogre3D.log file...(In PB 5.44 and PB 5.60 both)..Why?
Though the code have been smashed together in a jiffy, I can't find the reason for the message below:
Can't assign material Sphere to SubEntity of E84087120 because this Material does not exist. Have you forgotten to define it in a .material script?
All material are created 'on the fly'.
TIA.

Edit: Ooops..Forgot adding paths..

Example:

Code: Select all

Hi DK_PETER
yesterday i failed to run your code , i was on winxp . today i tried your code in windows 7 x64. PB 5.50 and after about one minute the planet displayed on the screen with some comets passing randomly and a starry night
Image
i have checked the ogre.txt file and there are 13 warning of "Can't assign material Sphere to SubEntity of ..."
i remember something like this happened and reported before , will try to search for it
but your example is nice, thanks.
will try to run it again in win xp ( my favorite environment, i feel homeless and lost in win7+) with the ready downloaded materials and [music.ogg file (downloaded with Getright util)] .

The same here (and I have no clue why, but I'm no 3D expert... :wink:)

But it works and is an amazing 3D example. Thank you! :D
It takes around 30 sec here, before it starts (tested with and without debugger, on Win10).
Bye,

Things are changing :wink:

Code: Select all

va\ret = ReceiveHTTPFile("https://free-images.com/Or/05ad/clouds_sky_blue_weather_6.jpg", path + "cloudy.jpg")
The music is only available as mp3

Simply search the web for a cloud image which is large enough.
There are millions of them.

Alternative:
Use your smartphone camera, look above and make a picture.
