Mesh Level Of Detail

With a 3D mesh, a LOD or level of detail algorithm can be used to dynamically resize the mesh according to a pre-set algorithm. It can become more or less complex, as the object is scaled up or down, allowing a single model to have a variable number of polygons according to its closeness to the viewpoint.

Advancement Revisited
A detailed look at advancement systems for gameworlds, can be found in this article, going beyond the relative skill level comparison route, to discussing why hiding skill level gains will not work, the problems with comparative scoring for skill levels, and proposing a solution which offers greater incentive to learn, on the part of the player ? at the cost of more thought required by the developer.

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.

This is a great product, in so many ways. From the captivating romantic plot, to the stunning scenery, and attention to detail. It truly immerses you in medieval life.
