Kambi Now Supports X3D Multi-Texture and Cube Maps

I'm very surprised of the advancements of Kambi VRML Game Engine (remember the interview to its creator?).

These are some of the new features that Michalis Kamburelis has added (still only available in SVN, will be added to the next stable):

  • X3D multi-texturing.
  • X3D cube map nodes.
  • Generating textures on the fly.
  • Added texture generation modes "WORLDSPACEREFLECTIONVECTOR" and "WORLDSPACENORMAL" (analogous to X3D standard modes in CAMERA space) to make simulating real reflections trivial.
  • Cool new feature in view3dscene to catch a "screenshot" of 3D world around you as a cube map (DDS, or six separate normal images).
