This is my pet project. It is intended to be a 3D MMO based on the Anime series Robotech.
The game will allow players to control a human avatar that will be able to interact with a number of transformable mecha, ground vehicles, and space craft.
The game features a solar system sized map with millimeter precision that will allow players to visit 1:1 scale models of all planets and moons. The game features a dynamic terrain generation system that allows smooth transitions from orbit to the surface without any "zoning".
Surface details will be relatively low compared to a standard 10km sq map. For the earth, I use a blend NASA radar height map data for the course elevation and some height map templates for the finer surface variations.
The physics will be a relaxed Newtonian to balance realism with playability.
