BSP Engine

The bsp engine is a port from the engine developed by Adam Hoult and Gary Simmons in their game institute course Advanced 3D BSP, PVS and CSG Techniques. It contains Binary Space Partitioning Tree (BSP), Portal Generation, Potential Visibility Sets (PVS) and Frustum Culling.


Terrain Engine

The terrain engine is based on the book Focus on 3D Terrain Programming by Trend Polack. It is a port of the quadtree implementation presented in chapter 6 of the book.


Game Engine

In the game engine we put all the parts together. First the game menu is displayed. Then the engine loads the level (MAP or IWF format) and adds MD2 models. While running AI and collision detection is also handled by the game engine and sound is integrated.
