I’ve been poking around my very old Blitz3D sources (back to 2005) and found a little demo showing a simple planet earth turning around with nice music I never released.
This is a small test program how to control a lot of Asteroids and implement a Freelancer-like steering. The quad engine controls 25000 asteroid quads right now but it could handle even more at a decent FPS rate.
The real Milky Way contains between 200 and 400 billion stars. I’ve made a small tech demo where you can fly through a very, very small galaxy with only 100.000 stars.
This is a experimental starmap. It zooms out seamless from a single star system (1 Light Year) to the whole galaxy (100.000 Light Years).
