threejs gotchas

Lighting a large scene: DirectionalLight is the best simulation of daylight. But in a big world, you probably don’t want to light it all at once. You’ll need to update the light position and also it’s target position, what it uses to calculate it’s angle. The gotcha is: you have to run scene.add( light.target ) […]

Spatial audio with howlerjs quickstart

a few hurdles I had getting started with spatial audio: How do I scale “my game space” to “howler space” Remember that howler’s pos() is arbitrarily different than your position units – I found that anything beyond approx 5 “howler units” was silent.
