The last week has been mostly spent writing generators for the various objects required by the game. If anyone is interested, the objects are: assorted pressure pads, a simple switch, a ‘capture’ switch, a door target selector, a power selector, a sphere, a pole, a bridge, assorted boxes and stair generators.

Still a bit of work to do on some of them and I have some shader work to make others operate properly.

The biggest advantages of using generators rather than building and loading models, is the ability to have variations on a theme and dynamic configuration with little cost. For instance the number of sides of a switch can be adjusted on demand and the iconography dynamically selected to match whatever is needed.

Anyway, as I said, there is still a bit of work required on this and I need to add some additional support for procedural textures, including decent Perlin and Simplex noise generator in the shaders.
