We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
Thanks, Paul. Hopefully the cat will submit some voxel.js modules and get on Github soon!
I'm definitely interested in the real-world data application that you explained in your comment. Some of the new fellows this year at Code for America are working on importing Open Street Map data into Voxel.js as a matter of fact. One idea I had was an app to let kids design and add voxel trees (or other public objects) to their city/neighborhood.
Sorry about this, in that demo we are using a few very computationally expensive functions to generate the world. The problem you experienced can be solved through the user of HTML5 Web Workers but we have not yet implemented them at this time.
Someone else called me out on that as well, my response was:
"Sorry about the tone, I definitely could have said that part more nicely. To me Java smells like too many abstract interfaces, lots of boilerplate and hard to use build tools. Java was the first language I learned so I may very well be scarred from the experience."
Maybe they'll design a new PVP system for UO. WoW's is still in it's infancy, and a good PVP game would definitely make me switch.
Besides, it seems that PVP is all that Mythic is good at. Their PVE leaves more to be desired.
