Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

How to make a voxel based open world game?

I want to make a game that has randomly generated terrain and part predesigned areas that can all be destructible just like 7 days to die or minecraft although i would want to smooth the terrain like in 7dtd eventuallyThe terrain is procedurally generated yet there are predesigned towns and farms, cities and what not. Everything in the game is snapped to a grid per voxel so say you place a bed it would take up the space of two voxels in length. Also there are biomes like minecraft and I want to my game to be like that too. If anyone can help me with this that's be great as I have no idea where to even start.

Google keywords for you: Marching Cubes, C/C++, Voxel volumes. dual contouring, Procedural generation, StaticMesh...

Making game like this is very complicated project but is not impossible.
