That's excellent work there Brano. I bet you just love doing what you're doing. I presume that there will be something in the line of season flow using the same method? Even weather flow? Ok, now i'm just thinking too much.

It's interesting to see that you have added time flow and kept the time of day but I can see that this allows one to select the time of day to start from. Nice one.

A+ Cameni. I got a good laugh out of the minecraft setting for timescale.

Far more impressive than I imagined. Just like everything else.

Yes, it's to select the starting conditions, then it flows from there, also incrementing days.

You do realize that with a mouse and slider, Cameni is really moving the whole planet?  A mere 5.972 x 10^24 kg.

;)

Gorgeous.  It looks like a nice place to live.

Good job guys!  I look forward to playing with that whenever you finish working on it.  Nice touch putting "Minecraft" in the time flow multiplier text box.

And as always, good choice of music for the video.  Really seems to go with it.   8)

Edit:  Also it's probably a good idea to be able to disable time flow as well in case you are trying to get the lighting right for a image/video or for some other reason.

Imagine filming something in 1.0X and you have been there so long the sun goes down.. THEN you know you have been playing too long.

Using the built-in video recording. But version 3456 actually broke it, next patch will fix it.

Fraps won't work, too many problems with 3rd party programs crashing our app, we had to block them.

Thank you for the quick reply. I have a Nvida GTX560 and got the 1K video issue too.
