    Remember way back when valve released the Particle Benchmark. The odd npc that was in it looks similar to valves new paint.

    never claimed otherwise, simply informing the public. I think its great they found a use for it in future games. (If they even reused any part of it at all)

    Oh yeah that odd NPC. It's possible that the liquids are based off that method.

    Why did you repost this? Everyone already knew this from another active thread.

    it's actually npc_surface. npc_blob is the snark demo.

    here is how I'm thinking it works:


    it can be assumed that this is all threaded, allowing it to run much faster by taking advantage of multicore systems. I also assume that they are using the mesh-builder system that garry showed off a while back.

    No, I think it's exclusive to the particle benchmark.

    EDIT: Ninja'd, twice.
