So, here it is, my decision: I'll dig out the 3D engine again. I think this is gonna be the best solution for me, quite interesting, and as I'm getting a new rig, I think I'll be able to test the more interesting stuff that has mostly not been implented yet. My current plan looks like this:
- Set up a local SVN server
- Understand the Aqsis MP Dump format. I've written a quick reference today (check it out in the Wiki at Aqsis.org). The MP dumps are cool, as they contain usually huge (millions or more polygons) which saves me from creating complex test scenes on my own - at least for the beginning.
After that, and when my new rig finally arrives, I'll start coding again seriously. So much for now.
