[1.12.2] Render Shrinking Chunk of Blocks


DavidM

Recommended Posts

I am creating a block that, when placed down, will destroy nearby blocks in the range of 11x11x11.

I am trying to create it so that when the process happen, an animation appear.

I would like the animation to look like as if the whole chunk of blocks in the range of 11x11x11 shrinks into one block in 1 second duration.

I am planning to accomplish this animation with TESR that renders all the block in the 11x11x11 and shrink them a bit per tick; however, I am concerned that rendering 11**3 blocks every tick is going to cause significant performance issue on the client.

 

Is there a better way to accomplish this?

1. Do not follow tutorials on YouTube, especially TechnoVision (previously called Loremaster) and HarryTalks, due to their promotion of bad practice and usage of outdated code.

2. Always post your code.

3. Never copy and paste code. You won't learn anything from doing that.

Whilst I cannot help out with the proper way to disable the blocks from rendering inside this area, and substituting your own animation, I can quite confidently state that it will not be as performance intensive as you think, if you keep OpenGL calls to a minimum.
I've made some menger-sponge inspired compressed blocks (20^1, 20^2.... 20^6 block compression) and whilst I was dealing with pre-calculated models and bakedQuad-caching, T3 compression(20^3) or 8,000 miniature blocks rendered inside a single blockspace did cause some stutter, but not game-breaking. (Though it wasn't animated)
Though 11^3 isn't a small number, that still only equates to 1,331 blocks. Yes, scaling all of this will have a higher performance drain than just basic rendering, but it shouldn't be impossible if you focus on performance.

Thanks. I shall try rendering everything in a single buffer and optimize my GL calls.

The blocks inside the area will be destroyed prior to the animation; therefore, it won’t be necessary to disable the rendering of the blocks.
