Haha I remember making one of these in GM5! Happy to see i'm not the only person interested in classic voxels like these.

Use YYC then it's 30+ (45 here). Ray-casting is a slow business :)

Actually... in HTML5 it's hitting 60+ which is interesting...

yes. html5 is faster than native... I dont have the module, but xot was flabbergasted by that. I have not installed MS Dev studio since my last PC build. Thanks for the code btw. Comanche was one of my most enjoyed games growing up.

Maybe there is a way to move the raycast to a shader...

Yeah, sometimes it is, most times not. Because this is a tight loop with mostly locals, the JIT does pretty well.

Yeah you could. Stick the heightmap into a texture and basically do the same thing.... It'd be slow for a shader, but should beat the CPU one :)
