PyLanders

A simple voxel game in early development.

PyLanders is a very early version of a simple voxel game. You'll need Pyglet installed to run it. The controls are WASD to move, R and F to fly, E to open inventory. It features an infinite world. PyPy is recommended for maximum performance. Pull requests are welcome.

    My little advice, divide the code into multiple forms trying not to do as some people who write 1500 lines of code in one .py module. This is a very interesting project, I will follow the future developments with pleasure.

    I'm refactoring bit by bit - the original code was the result of an overcaffeinated five-hour coding sprint, so it's not really the best code ever :P

    I would recommend you use larger meshes. Batch more geometry into a single draw call so you spend less time on the cpu doing so many draw calls and you wouldn't need pypi. I did 20fps without it. In all my experimenting with PyPy I never felt a difference in performance anyways. Hopefully you'll be able to achieve better view distance as well. You can check out some screenshots of a project of my own voxel project using Python and C++ https://www.dropbox.com/sh/hmq4kbupxvdjkyu/AAAZ6DcsBV2-6p14LMBM7jUSa?dl=0 . And later an attempt at a volumetric approach https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iykr4bn6vLo
