Sandbox Release #1: Procedural Block World
Alex J. Champandard on October 3, 2008
The first release is a fully functioning version of the sandbox, including full assets and code, that tackles the major technical obstacles. For instance, it demonstrates a procedural block world generated quickly and efficiently, which can be loaded in a few seconds. The graphics can also be disabled and the simulation run from the console entirely at a much faster speed. Characters can also be animated as skeletons with a set of motion capture clips, and displayed optionally in the 3D view.
