Game Updates 

Veloren 

LandscapeDeer by the riverside

Fortress and Dice World.

In September, Veloren hit 5000 commits to the first repo! A privilege escalation
malicious program became stumbled on within the game. It became immediate patched, and a PSA became sent out to
utter server householders of its presence. A Discord bot became created to lend a hand space up a
trying out server. Airshipper, Veloren’s launcher, noticed the originate of version
0.4.0. Many of work is occurring to present a boost to the convey of Veloren’s server
infrastructure. A stress test became rush with 15 avid gamers to detect how smaller server
might well handle running the game.

Enhancements had been made to the chunk compression which resulted in a ~7x memory
low cost of their storage. The settings menu has been overhauled, in conjunction with
many diverse sides of the UI. A stone golem boss became merged, collectively with a brand original boss
to dungeons. Work has been performed on beam weapons and collisions, leading to a
vastly improved therapeutic sceptre.

In October, Veloren can lend a hand pushing in direction of more scalable infrastructure.
Tests are going down to pass in direction of a Kubernetes cluster to lend a hand an eye on more
infrastructure from code. Optimizations can lend a hand coming in as we discover areas to
give a boost to. 0.8 might originate within the future this month, nonetheless, the state date is yet to
be space.

OpenGL Preprocessor for Rust 

With the corpulent energy of Cargo assemble scripts and Tera, you per chance might fabricate a cosmopolitan
GLSL preprocessor which is ready to generate code conditionally, in loops, and even
inherit code from diverse templates.

An OpenGL preprocessor for Rust

Writing undeniable GLSL code is unhappy, code is rather typically is duplicated, libraries
are now not one thing natural for GLSL (contrivance you per chance can now not out of the box attain #consist of “library.glsl”).
The final point is severely problematic if some constants genuinely bag in
your sport logic (just like the different of player sorts). Updating these values manually
for your shader code is repetitive and inclined to each error and simple forgetfulness.
Or now not it’s genuinely indispensable to assemble some more or much less preprocessor for your GLSL code,
which is ready to consist of diverse recordsdata, so that you just per chance might space up your code into manageable chunks.
With the energy of Tera, or now not it’s now easy to full.
Because Rust is additionally typically extinct for web tasks, which want a selection of templated
web-pages preprocessing, we can borrow such skills for our wants,
combine it with cargo assemble scripts and fabricate a bring collectively-time preprocessing software.

Fontdue is a easy, no_std, pure Rust, TrueType & OpenType
font rasterizer and layout software.
It strives to assemble interacting with fonts as immediate as that you just per chance might believe,
and currently has the bottom slay to slay latency for a font rasterizer.

Fontdue is reckoning on ttf-parser for parsing fonts,
which helps a huge differ of TrueType and OpenType parts.

A non-aim of this library is to be allocation free and revel in a immediate,
“zero mark” preliminary load.
Fontdue does assemble allocations and is reckoning on the alloc crate.
Fonts are completely parsed on advent and relevant recordsdata is saved
in a more convenient to entry layout.
In contrast to diverse font libraries, the font structures have not any lifetime dependencies
since it allocates its possess space.

Mission’s roadmap:

  • v1.0: fontdue is designed to be an alternative choice to
    rusttype, ab_glyph, substances of glyph_brush, and glyph_brush_layout.
    It is miles a class of font libraries that manufacture now not deal with shaping.
  • v2.0: Shaping – the advanced layout of text equivalent to Arabic and Devanagari
    – might be added.
    There are two capacity pure Rust libraries (allsorts or rustybuzz)
    that are candidates for providing a shaping backend to Fontdue,
