scene occlusion culling is necessary in city scene,
does ogre team have a plan to add occlusion culling feature in ogre's road map ?

Try the PCZ scenemanager - it has "antiportals" which occlude portals. I don't think they occlude objects in the same zone, but obviously any objects beyond an occluded portal would not be rendered.

Praetor was working on a software-based occlusion culling mechanism. Tuan Kuranes started (but didn't finish) an HOQ-based one in the CHCSceneManager.

There are no official plans however (that I am aware of) for such support within the Ogre core, however.

Thanks for your reply,
maybe CHCSceneManger was intergrated to PLSM2, I'm testing it in Ogre1.7.1.
look forward to seeing PLSM3.

I have a feeling that PLSM3 is like Duke Nukem 4Ever was -- lots of hope that it will happen, very low likelihood that it will actually come to pass. With the Paging support in Ogre core now, it's unlikely that it would be finished as it would be duplicating functionality.

That's to bad...

I guess you have to integrated your self like I did.

But if you want it and create it I am sure everyone else wants it once it's done...

Hell I am tired of maintaining what I have.

Looking forward of seeing what you come up with.

I think Occlusion Culling is a very important thing, especialy for lights and shadows - I read somewhere, that every light renders the scene...
My game is FPS, and OC is very important for it(my opinion) I need to know, how many FPS could it save? (I have 3 lights, and ~60 nodes, 900 batch count, a map is something about a million of poly, my FPS is 17)

How about sharing your implementation? All these other people waiting for it might thank you.
Just a thought.

I also agree... Lee04, you can just share binaries(it will be so cool! :roll: :D ), without opening source code, and sell the source code, but binaries will be free(I know you sell your plugin for OC, yes?) And again, need to ask, how many FPS should Occlusion Culling save?

You'd get better results asking Praetor if he has made any progress, and is willing to share it.
