Rotation under varying force This is quite a tough one. I'm working on a flight simulation and aircraft are modeled as a rigid solid moving under drag. I'm making the AI system so I need to plan a path for the airplane - thus i need to spin it around so it points in th...

Impostor texture allocation I'm working on a cloud system using impostors and it is currently working quite well, only that I'm using a single impostor texture resolution. I want to be able to render far-away impostors to lower resolution textures than the near o...

Bluetooth Headset I'm looking into buying a bluetooth headset, something like this. I have a bag in which I carry my cellphone and when driving, if I get a call it's quite annoying to try to get it out with one hand or wait for a stoplight. Moreover, I hate h...

Critique my hardware configuration + what games to play on it? It's been a long long time since I bought a brand new PC - about 8 years actually. I did get a laptop in this time but it's of no great use to gaming. Since I've got a new job as a game programmer I figured I need a new machine to play the current ga...

Need advice on dealing with my bosses I work for a small company which does contracting, so now we've got to develop a product which includes a web site. So I've estimated the cost for the programming part which I'll be doing and the cost for the design which would be done by someone els...

UK living I'll be living in Nottingham for a couple of months, working with one of the company's clients. We are still negotiating the pay I'll be getting, but as it looks now, excluding housing, I'll be living off 170 quid per week. Do you think that wou...

Looking for testing management software We have a pretty big project at work which involves a web application calling reports which, in turn, call a bunch of SQL procedures. Currently the testing strategy is pretty bad: testers run the app and look over the interface and the reports just c...

Learning programming. Creating heuristics and algorithms While teaching programming to my girlfriend, I've come across a gap in learning literature about programming dealing with heuristics and exercises that help shape the mind into creating algorithms. Most of the books follow the same style: "L...

More routing problems, 2 router lan Right, so I have this setup: 2 internet connections from different ISPs. One goes into a linux box which does routing and the other goes into a TrendNet hardware router. There is also a switch to which all the computers on the network are li...

Some recent replies made on our forums looking for AI-Contestants That's pretty impressive and looks like fun. What's the main challenge in coding a bot? Do you need to make separate bots for single tanks and formations? I'd change the site layout a bit if you want to attract users. I think this year's Google AI...

Sensation of Speed I'm working on a flight sim game and I can tell you, the problem with creating a good sensation of speed has been incredibly tricky. What gives you a good sensation: - detail textures help out quite a bit - they give you a lot of moving pi...

The USD is falling in value: What to do if/when/before/after it collapses? Ugh.. have you actually checked the rates? The USD is at 2008 levels, which is quite low but then again gold investment isn't doing extraordinary well either.

Parabolic motion smoothing You could try using an exponential function for the angle (not ang velocity), something like: 1-exp(-x*5) On the 0-1 interval it increases quite fast at start and slows down quite a lot at the end. Now if you have a full flown physics en...

[SOLVED] Physics 2D drag problem Quote:Original post by NotTheCommonDose I'm starting to get the feeling that setting a maximum velocity as a result of drag isn't going to be simple. It's not simple but not too hard either: Write the equations of motion: F = a - k*v; v =...

Logic to keep vehicle on course. My solution was something like this: It ensures you hit all your waypoints.

Logic to keep vehicle on course. First of all you need to determine what is your minimum turn radius. If you can turn at 3 degrees per second at speed S you get: R = v / w = v / (TORAD(3)) Now take points B and C. Construct the vector from B to C. Take the perpendicular to it...
