Base Mesh

A base mesh is a type of 3D polygon mesh, that is formed as a cvery simplistic model, lacking all detail, and is used as the basis for more advanced work. Typically they only have the vague general form of the object, and can then be customised to fit individual specifics.

For example, when modelling humanoids, a base mesh may well be used that has all the body parts in the correct places, and the correct proportions. But nothing else.

Electrocorticography Grows Up
Electrocorticography or ECoG is a method of neural interface in which an electrode array, quite like a fine mesh, is draped over the upper surface of the brain directly, under the skull. A section of the skull is removed to allow the array to be fed in, then replaced. The result is near-identical to a high fidelity EEG that is under the skull and thus away from its pattern dampening properties.

World Review: Sherwood Dungeon
World Review: Sherwood Dungeon welcome screen
Sherwood Dungeon is a shockwave based, gaming virtual environment. It is in essence, a MMO boiled down to its finest base elements and given a 3D feel. A combat world, with chat added on the end, it often feels lacking, and even boring after prolonged participation.
