Andrevv Posted April 30, 2017 Share Posted April 30, 2017 Hello everyone! This is my first question about my first babylon.js project. It will be a strategy game with complex economics (similar to Caesar 3, Knights and Merchants). The framework is amazing, I like it very much, but I have some problems with shadows. Everything works fine, until I add lots of instances of a mesh across a large ground. The shadow becomes just a blob, almost invisible. I think the problem comes from DirectionalLight.prototype.setShadowProjectionMatrix where all mesh positions are checked to see how big the area is for casting shadows. The bigger the area, the more detail will be lost. Can someone give me some advice on how to handle this problem? I thought of the following: 1. Increase the mapSize from 1024 to a much larger value, but it doesn't make much difference with 2048 and the fps drops very much. 2. Somehow force the shadow casting area to be smaller with the help of customProjectionMatrixBuilder, and make it follow the camera, but how? 3. Make the shadow part of the model, like an old-school circle shadow with transparency. Ugly, but at least I get 60 fps Any other idea may be helpful You can take a look at it if it helps: http://feszer.go.ro/babylon.js/1/ P.S. I know, that instances can't have different animations, I will handle that with separate clones for every action, I think Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
