Re: DEvmaster.net article Hl2 vs D3 engine.
Since I view Carmack as one of the best, if not the best, graphics programmer in the biz I enjoy listening to his QuakeCon interviews. Today, before enjoying a jog, I put one in my Ipod Shuffle and then proceeded to listen to the QuakeCon 2004 interview. Carmack is a visionary and is always looking forward, which is evident in his plans for his next engine. The next engine will not be built from scratch, but will most likely use parts of the Doom 3 engine. Of course he said the same thing about the Doom 3 engine so it may well turn out to be built from the ground up. The renderer is being changed out, and one of the biggest differences is the shift from stencil shadows to shadow buffers.
