    Phoronix: Ask Questions About The Unigine Engine

    We were very impressed last year when first watching the Unigine Tropics demo that was integrated in the Phoronix Test Suite as its OpenGL graphics were stunning and the game engine behind it, Unigine, is fully compatible with Linux. While not yet released, the latest work going into this powerful game engine bring multiplayer and physics support along with a horde of other features...

    19. What is your experience with OpenGL drivers? Do you routinely encounter bugs on either vendor that force you to implement workarounds? Do you use multiple code paths, not only per hardware level (SM2, SM3, SM4), but also per-vendor?

    20. This may a little too technical, but do you use a forward or a deferred renderer? If it is the latter, how did you implement FSAA? Is it done as a custom post-process edge-detect filter, or have you implemented some novel algorithm for this?

    21. What approach do you take for GI (Global Illumination)? SSAO or something newer/better?

    22. What are your thoughts on OpenCL? Are there any plans to use it for e.g. physics in the future?

    Edit: 23. What is the triangle budget for a typical scene?

    When will we get the answers to these questions?

    After looking at the feature list, it's very impressive.
    I'm curious to know if there's going to be a Blender import or export plugin?
    Your page says Unigine 1.0 supports R300 & up- if there are any more updates to it planned, would you support the open-source Radeon driver? (I understand the performance isn't the same).

Do you plan on lowering the prices once Unigine is established a little more? I can hardly think of an Indie-dev that would sign up for a 40,000 Dollar engine.
    Not to sound like a prick but if the engine is as good as the pictures and videos would make it seem like, it would probably be well worth it. The investor likely gives you more than enough money to pay the bill if you play your cards right. (Also seems to me the page says you don't have to pay the second part at all if the project goes bust before release. Then again, another way to read it is: do not release before you get an investor)

    17. What do you intend and/or expect to achieve in the Linux space with this engine?

    18. Does the engine support external and third party libraries? (if I want to use different API for sound, or physics, etc.)
