    Performance Optimization tips.

    Hi @aFalcon visibility = 0 will just not render mesh, but will do matrix calculations (position, rotation e.c), but if you set enabled false, it will not perform these calculations, so enabled false should be more performant.

    Great Idea. I made rays from bounding box corners to camera's position. Something like this: var boundingInfo = activeObject.getBoundingInfo().boundingBox.vectorsWorld; for (var i = 0; i < boundingInfo.length; i++) { var ray = pickingRays[i];//pre defined rays for reuse ray.origin = boundingInfo[i]; scene.activeCamera.position.subtractToRef(ray.origin, ray.direction); ray.direction.normalize(); ray.length = BABYLON.Vector3.Distance(scene.activeCamera.position, ray.origin); for (var j = 0; j < scene.activeCamera._activeMeshes.length; j++) { var mesh = scene.activeCamera._activeMeshes.data[j]; if (ray.intersectsMesh(mesh, true).hit) { mesh.visibility = 0.5; } } } I never knew there was a multiPick, its there as scene.multiPick and scene.multiPickWithRay. This helped in other areas. So double thanks for the bonus 😉 The above solution works just right, but I would love to see if there were a better/efficient solution.

    Web Assembly

    I should not being doing this . . . but I have been experimenting with Web Assembly. With so many hexagons and so many crime incidents, Illuminated City has come computationally intensive tasks. My question is, have y'all tried to use it for some functions (e.g. ComputeNormals)? Did it perform well? Did it seem worthwhile?

    Blender > .babylon Vertex Groups

    Hello, For anyone that may be interested, I have been messing with mesh.py to get it to export Vertex Groups along with their associated indices and have attached it. I think @adam and @ozRocker have both asked about this and I'd definitely make good use of it. I'd be grateful if you could let me know if this works for you or not, please. It currently adds them under the 'meshes' as 'vertexGroups' Massive disclaimer: I am not good with Python! Thank you Problem: it duplicates indices. mesh.py

    I agree that this should be the same result as resizing the height where all the scene is expanding or shrinking.

    Performance Optimization tips.

    Hersir has right. setEnabled(false) no longer makes the mesh on the scene, but visibility=0 just makes the mesh invisible but still rendered as if it were visible somehow.

    Performance Optimization tips.

    I would be very surprised if visibility = 0 has higher performance. There are too many checks (ie: that break a for loop on mesh.isEnabled()) for disabled that are before visibility checks... Interested to see any statistics.

    I'm currently using VSCode. Definitely my editor of choice for anything web-dev. It is well supported and has a lot of cool features (like an integrated terminal, live-code sharing, etc.) The only downside when using it for phaser is that there aren't currently any phaser extensions that support code snippets, documentation previews, or text-suggestions.

    BitmapText anchor y is inaccurate

    What tool did you use for your font? Open your .fnt or .xml file. Make sure that lineHeight is equal to size. Example: <info face="Font" size="64" bold="0" italic="0" charset="" unicode="" stretchH="100" smooth="1" aa="1" padding="2,2,2,2" spacing="0,0" outline="0"/> <common lineHeight="64" base="55" scaleW="2048" scaleH="512" pages="1" packed="0"/>

    Babylonjs consumes too much memory

    Yes, ask all users to have the latest graphics card and a latest-generation I7 processor. 100 000 mailles is really huge. I do not even know how to add so many objects to a scene, it must be a sacred work to achieve. Very very long. I do not even imagine how many images there are to load. To add 1000 meshes already on a scene is already enormous provided to have instances to create otherwise the FPS are really low and the users will not really be able to benefit from your game and will leave after 2 minutes of use.

    This is far from a perfect solution, but to get this started. 1. See if the mesh that could be hidden is in the camera frustrum, if needed: var frustumPlanes = BABYLON.Frustum.GetPlanes(camera.getTransformMatrix()); mesh.isInFrustum(frustumPlanes) 2. If your mesh is in the frustrum, then get the mesh bounding box or loop through all the mesh vertices and cast rays at each of the vertices with multiPick using something like lookAt() to get the normal to that vertex? This is the part that would kind of work, but surely has a lot of room for improvement. I am interested to hear how this is done properly. It's flawed, because it could still miss meshes. I can see multiple edge cases where that solution wouldn't work.

    I only know that in the font format letters have offsets, and anchor ignores it.

    Web Assembly

    Gentlemen, thank you for the links. Let me some opinions base on three days of work. I started writing in straight WAT. Because I have a genetic defect that causes me to do things the hard way. However, it has caused me to learn a lot of things. WebAssembly is at the "MVP" stage as they call it. One can only create a module with functions below that - two levels. One can create a list of which functions may be exported. The MVP status shows: I couldn't figure out how to make a module-global variable that was mutable; so I did a work-around. One can share a typed array between JS and WA. In WA, it is called "memory" but there may only be one of them. I redesigned things a bit so all processing was applied against one array. This could put a crimp in my style. Is it possible the "C" converter bypasses these functionality bottlenecks? It seems a little unlikely; I think wat is the textual representation of wasm and they go hand-in-hand. They do appear to be beavering away at this much as we are here. The integration makes it *NOT* an all or nothing kind of thing. When the module is built, it can receive JS functions, notably console.log. So I can log things to the console. I could make other JS calls if I wanted. Exported functions are just a function. You can call it from JS. (If you print them it says "native code", which gave me a kick.) In light of this, I am pushing forward with creating limited functions for the three or four places where Illuminated City sits for more than a second. It requires some re-organization but I have the substantial advantage of being the only author. I can also write these functions in JS. That part is really neat; the array is one array and looks the same whether the manipulation was done by JS or WA. This will be helpful for testing.

    Web Assembly

    The answer might come (before the end of year, I hope) from AssemblyScript : https://github.com/AssemblyScript/assemblyscript that allows to compile a subset of TypeScript directly to WebAssembly, aka WASM, or to Javascript. Check out this online tool : https://webassembly.studio/ Knowing that BJS is already coded in TypeScript, the effort to port some parts of the code to the AssemblyScript required subset would probably be worth a try instead of rewritting thousands of lines in C/C++ just in order to compile them to WASM. A subset of TypeScript is just some legal TS... this just means that AssemblyScript can't understand all TypeScript, but just a subpart of it because the compiling process imposes some explicit definitions. Example : whereas TS can understand the statement "var a = 10" or "var a:number = 10", AssemblyScript needs to know if the variable a is an integer, a float and what memory size to use : i16, i32, f32, f64 before compiling. The same thing we would have to do if the same part of code were ported to C actually. Well, if you already contribute to BJS in TS, or if you simply code in TS on your side, you don't really need to learn more to start to code with AssemblyScript in order to get your first working WASM. Never tried so far though 😄

    Shouldn't the GUI block the pointer?

    Come to think of it, no they shouldn't because some, like text labels, can be used in the scene itself and need to ignore the mouse. Forget that I asked

    [SOLVED] polygroups?

    Not quite sure what you are after, but you could write your own custom mesh merge as well, if you want the meshes together and your own grouping. https://doc.babylonjs.com/how_to/how_to_merge_meshes#use-your-own-merge-function

    ValueCondition checks value on a specific propery. This should work: obj3.onoff = 0; var obj1 = scene.getMeshByName("Knob");var obj2 = scene.getMeshByName("Curtains");var obj3 = scene.getMeshByName("Fire");var obj4 = scene.getMeshByName("Solid");var audio = new BABYLON.Sound("Fire", "Fire.wav", scene, null, { loop: true, autoplay: false }); var COND1 = new BABYLON.ValueCondition(obj3.actionManager, obj3, "onoff", 0, BABYLON.ValueCondition.IsEqual); obj3.actionManager = new BABYLON.ActionManager(scene);obj3.actionManager.registerAction( new BABYLON.CombineAction(BABYLON.ActionManager.OnPickTrigger, [ new BABYLON.PlayAnimationAction(BABYLON.ActionManager.NothingTrigger, obj1, 0, 360, 0), new BABYLON.PlayAnimationAction(BABYLON.ActionManager.NothingTrigger, obj2, 0, 360, 0), new BABYLON.PlayAnimationAction(BABYLON.ActionManager.NothingTrigger, obj4, 0, 360, 0), new BABYLON.PlaySoundAction(BABYLON.ActionManager.NothingTrigger, audio), new BABYLON.ExecuteCodeAction(BABYLON.ActionManager.NothingTrigger, function () { obj3.onoff = 1; console.log(onoff);}) ], COND1) ).then(new BABYLON.StopSoundAction(BABYLON.ActionManager.OnPickTrigger, audio));
