Lux 3D Engine - Going Open Source

My apologies for not being as active as I wanted to be on this project. I have been busy with other projects the last couple of months. I just wanted to give you a heads up, I will be releasing Lux under a Open Source license very soon so you people can start using/extending Lux.

I will be releasing it on ukmn.com first so if you want to know as soon as it released, I suggest keeping an eye on our RSS feed.

A quick recap on Lux
The main aim of this engine is for it to be usable in a sense of performance and have a simple API to integrate cleanly into other AS3 projects. I have seen many ActionScript 3D engines done in flash but many are over complicated, try to do too much and can be slow for simple tasks. I do not plan to add features like texture mapping, model loaders and animation as I want this to remain extremely lightweight and most importantly fast!

Base Features include:
  • LuxView: The main engine that contain, lights, objects and a camera.
  • LuxObject: An object that contains Points, Lines, Curves, Faces etc.
  • LuxStyle: Allows you to change the appearance of objects.

Other classes include Matrix, Vector, LuxAnchor, LuxPoint, LuxMultiPoint, LuxLine, LuxFace, LuxColour, LuxCamera, LuxLight.

I have also included a few primitive objects that will allow you to learn how to construct your own objects.

Fuel is the adrenaline of any car, truck or engine. Thus, it is every vehicle owner's wish to enhance the fuel of their car and save more of it as well. With this in mind, the most innovative fuel-saving tool in the automotive industry was conceptualized and created: the Tornado Fuel Saver. An automotive air channeling tool that creates a swirling air motion, the Tornado Fuel Saver allows the air to move in a faster and more efficient way by whirling air around corners and bends. Hence, more fuel is saved. Search engine optimization, Try to Be happy
