While most of the data is empirical, it gives a good idea about how I create the music and my choices of music for the game. 100% is what an average brain can handle. While everyone is different this is an average. If the music is lower and has a ration inferior to 100%, then the brain has no issue digesting […]

The Environment is upgraded to UE5!

Category: Work in Progress

Posted on Saturday May 07, 2022

When I first loaded Metaisland in Unreal 5, here is what I got. The Skybox system had lost its parameter and all the lightning was reset! After a couple of days of work, I got this result instead. All the environment is now working with Unreal Engine 5. But this had learn some lessons: Nanite is not liking foliage and we in general cannot use Nanite in Metaisland.

UE5 Update: the foliage is improved

Category: Work in Progress

Posted on Tuesday April 26, 2022

Every problem has a solution and sometime when you try to fix a problem you come up with a solution that is an improvement. One of the problem with UE5 was that all imposters were totally black. (check my previous blog post) What happen is that the octahedron impostors, a technique created by Ryan Brucks were totally broken. Billboards Impostors are a technique used to display a 2d sprite at a certain distance from the camera so that huge forests […]

That is not an easy task. Since my first tests 10 months ago with the beta, a lot of things have changed in EU5 and here is the result of my first tests.! It Sucks!

Category: Announcements

Posted on Thursday February 10, 2022

Once Plan9 came with the logo we all agreed that it was more inspiring than the old W.O.K idea. WOK is an utensil to […]

I have published a new updated media gallery for January 2022. There are some new area like the Tesla Coil area and of course the Cyber town area.

Mining crypto video

Category: Work in Progress

Posted on Monday September 20, 2021

At regular interval an alarm is warning the players in the world of WOK that mining will happen. They have to rush close to a mining facility if they want to catch some free crypto mined the way you can see in the video. The gems/stones can have many different shapes and values. But you must be quick, the gems are dissolving rapidly and disappear. It does not cost electric and is a lot more fun than mining another crypto!
