Quote from: WALKEN on June 28, 2019, 08:25:28 pmProgressive thinking is great and all but in most cases with most things we haven't exhausted the prior hence flavor of the week. In fact a lot of things don't even compare to earlier incarnations.
Video gaming has become as stale as month old bread, but hey at least they look pretty being soulless....
When you build things from the ground up there is a satisfaction and deeper knowledge in the end oppose to relying on pre-built items that you stick in place and don't understand the inter workings... Take music for instance, most progressive artist today don't even know how to place a mic let alone even play an instrument... Everything is plug and play and in the end you get more of the same with no personality because the oddities come from the individual not a simulated program.
I enjoy PiBoSo's work because of the oddity of it or integrity, keeps me coming back....

Happy with the status quo with no vision and no balls to take the risks required to move into a bigger & better future.Of course. All the vision (and the balls) are a monopoly of the likes of you ... can't fight.

I also think he's already said he's using C, not C++.
Ah. But he didn't say why?
He knows most of his own code inside-out, if he says it would be a massive project, that's good enough for me.
The problem with GPB is that it took way too long: in a span of time that big from now, maybe UE will be dead, or maybe we'll have UE13 and Unity 9, or Trinity 1.0 with new, incredible graphical features. And the UE4-based GPB supposed to solve all the problems will be outdated again.
The only way a new engine could be envisaged would be to declare GPB completed (or dead, depending on how you look at it) and start a GPB 2 almost from scratch. That's a hell of a call to make when you're unsure of the benefits.Quote from: Hawk on June 25, 2019, 05:46:43 pmI mean why stick to using a horse and cart when you can be chauffeured in a limousine or driving a super-car?All that from the guy that still lives in the 70's with 2 strokes, no electronics and world-class riders smoking weed on the grid right before the start.
Who knows, maybe PiBoSo likes to code his own ambient occlusion just they way you like to do yor own manual "traction control".

Impulse Resolution... Maybe UE4 sucks in this department? GPBikes isn't call of duty...
Name one racing game physics better than GPBikes? GP19 physics are not on par with PiBoSo, its a game not a simulation...
Quote from: WALKEN on June 25, 2019, 07:53:09 pmlol, Hawk I'm glad you agree. I'm not disagreeing with you at all.
There is this thing called- impulse resolution
Its not as simple as just changing engines.
