Thank you.

The game runs amazingly slow on my computer. I think it’s understandable, since my computer is an Intel i3 core with a default graphics card.

You are in luck, the game is now 5 times faster on my computer which is 20 frames per second, and I have a dual core 1.6 ghz ddr2 ram and a geforce 520. it should run on just about any standard machine. I have unfortunately had to remove some of the volume lights (the rays comming from the skyline)

I would much appreciate it if you could test this new version ReubenUnicruz. and to the rest of you, happy realtime gaming!


Hi, another speed up came through with a nice bug fix on the LOD system and the slow down bug near the tree was fixed.

Thanks and enjoy K2D.2 !

Any chance in a .app or .blend for Macs?

Hi Ross

The blend file is separate and is included as gamefile.nic, you will need all the .nic files included with the game(including save files) in the blender directory to get it to work. you will need to install it on a windows machine first because it is an installer.

Also, the gamefile is copyrighted and does not fall under the GPL so if you intend to publish something you make with it we can talk about it.



Many features added, and Im ready to call this a retail version. New You Tube video comming soon featuring the new music.

If you still want your save games, just copy the save game directory.

like I promised, a new video is available.

Your game it’s looking nice, I gave it a try and it’s running too slow on my pc, I think you should optimize it more, maybe some LOD or occlusion culling?

it already has LOD and occlusion culling, my computer is very old except the graphics card which is a 520. so it should run fine on just about any new machine. the you tube video is also slower because video capture uses up alot of resources. it runs at 20 frames per second on my pc.

2.4 has been released, This should be better for people with hi-end machines since the tiles load from memory and not the hard drive, also I have refined the occlusion and made other enhancements.
