  • On the importance to make games during the game engine's development
    3 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 27 Feb 2024
    That's the path I took with Polygonjs ( https://polygonjs.com ), and a game I've just released ( https://polyreplay.com/minesweepertwist ), with more coming shortly.

    But it didn't start like that. It only started as a tool I could use to deliver client projects, as I was trying to become a freelance for interactive 3D scenes for the web.

    Project after project ( some examples here: https://polygon-lab.com/ ), I could improve Polygonjs. Then I found clients who would be interested enough to buy licenses, and would give valuable feedback which would help the project grow even more.

    And a few clients asking for not just interactive sites, but also games. This pushed Polygonjs further, and after several games released, it definitely qualifies as a game engine.

    So this is generally an advice I give to people who want to become freelancers. Build a tool that solves a problem in your space, as this gives you an edge, and you'll also get the chance to confront that tool to reality, which will help it - and you - grow. This becomes a virtuous circle very quickly.

    Can I invite you to try Polygonjs as well?
  • Sdf – Generate 3D meshes based on SDFs
    2 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 22 Jun 2023
    you can generate an SDF from a mesh with [Polygonjs](https://polygonjs.com). Here is an [example scene](https://polygonjs.com/examples/bynode:mat:raymarchingbuilder...).

    It won't generate a function, though. Instead it creates a 3D texture which is used inside the raymarching material. In my experience this is much more performant, and also art-directable.

  • Vegetation modelling tool
    2 projects | /r/gamedev | 30 May 2023
    If you ever wanted to do a vegetation modelling tool for the web, I invite you to try it on Polygonjs, it has a lot of similarities with Houdini (node-based, procedural modeling, HDA system, etc) and is all web/realtime. And open source.
  • Image Synthesis Libs in JS (ideally canvas)
    8 projects | /r/roguelikedev | 29 May 2023
    I'm running Polygonjs, a node-based WebGL design & animation tool. It has many procedural geometry nodes, material nodes, behavior nodes, but very few texture generation nodes. I'd love to see someone contribute and add such nodes.

    This is extremely interesting: https://github.com/polygonjs/polygonjs/blob/master/src/engine/nodes/cop/SDFBlur.ts uses a 3D construct and implements the blur using a fixed matrix.

    You can see the source of the core library and the texture nodes are in the COP folder.
  • Is there some way to implement a web-based customizer?
    6 projects | /r/openscad | 16 May 2023
    For Polygonjs (a webgl design and animation tool), I've integrated Opencascade. See this example scene and demo video tutorial.
    6 projects | /r/openscad | 16 May 2023
    The core library is also open source on https://github.com/polygonjs/polygonjs, so if you don't find all opencascade functionalities that you need just yet, you're very welcome to add them, either as plugin or as a PR.
