...as for now, without sources.
uses 512x512 textures, so you need to do a bit of tweaking if you're on a Voodoo...

Please please please read the README file first.

UPDATE:

on a Voodoo it _won't_ work unless you change the "TextureSize" param to 256 in the config file and re-run the heightfield generator PERLIN.EXE;
The skyboxes will be scaled OK, though, courtesy of the excellent glPNG library.

I get something like 50 fps with 2000-3000 triangles, and around 25-30 fps with 8000 triangles on CPUs in the PII/400 range, on videocards from Savage3D to TNT2M64. Unfortunately, my code seems to be the bottleneck, not the video card - it's not fillrate limited below 800x600.

Note: The ZIP file weighs around 1.3 MB. Most of it are the skybox textures, sorry :-)

Here's a URL with a more recent version and a screenshot (so, hopefully, somebody will take a look at it at last :-)):

ok dude i downloaded your program and i was actualy pretty impressed

in the readme you said that you didnt know how the fog looked....well you could bring the fog in a bit. if you want me to post a screenshot i can. on my celeron 333a with 64mb ram and a tnt card i got about 40-45 fps at 640x480.

email me if you wish me to test a new version or need screenhots from me. or if you need me to make you any models or textures i am completly open to that dude.

have fun programming :-)

Yes, please take a screenshot with and without fog. I seem to have problems with the fog on my Savage3d, and SGI's software renderer is waaay too slow to debug with it...
