MaterialToken

Description

static class Tinman.Terrain.Util.MaterialToken

The MaterialToken class implements the concept of material tokens for terrain rendering.

A material token is a 64-bit value that defines weights for up to 4 materials out of a palette of 256 possible materials:

Bits     | Name | Description               | Range
---------+------+---------------------------+---------
[0 .. 8[ | w0   | Weight of first material  | [0..255]
[8 ..16[ | w1   | Weight of second material | [0..255]
[16..24[ | w2   | Weight of third material  | [0..255]
[24..32[ | w3   | Weight of fourth material | [0..255]
[32..40[ | m0   | ID of first material      | [0..255]
[40..48[ | m1   | ID of second material     | [0..255]
[48..56[ | m2   | ID of third material      | [0..255]
[56..64[ | m3   | ID of fourth material     | [0..255]

A weight value of 255 means that the material is fully realized, a value of 0 means that the material is completely dissolved. Furthermore, the material ID values of a token always appear in descending order, and the last material ID is duplicated in order to mark the token end:

m0 > m1 > m2 > m3     -> four materials
m0 > m1 > m2, m3 = m2 -> three materials
m0 > m1, m2 = m3 = m1 -> two materials
m0 = m1 = m2 = m3     -> one material

The individual material weights are unrelated. It is up to the application to properly interpret the weights.
