Infrastructure proposal.png This article covers an infrastructure proposal.

Infrastructure proposals are suggestions how to improve the project infrastructure; this also includes the code toolchain and tools for code documentation. Infrastructure proposals will be evaluated by the project management department and implemented down the line if they have been agreed upon.

This proposal explores how (smaller) buildings should be implemented in PARPG.

Contents

Infinity Engine approach

The interior of buildings resides at separate maps.

Pros

Cons

Fallout approach

The interior of (smaller) buildings is part of the outdoor map.

Pros

  • You can shoot into and out of houses

Cons

  • Walls have to be split up into smaller pieces to avoid z-ordering issues
  • Complex graphics department asset pipeline required
