(8x8x8, Cells: 512) [All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]Derek Nalls wrote on 2005-08-21 UTCDescription- (Symmetrical Chess Collection) section- '3-D chess variants' page 25 http://www.symmetryperfect.com/shots/descript.pdf Until recently, I was also passionate about 3-D chess designs and at least, my prospects for creating games sometime in the distant future when 3-D graphics in a universal chess variant program (perhaps, ZOG) were up-to-par. Currently, I no longer intend to develope any 3-D games. Nonetheless, you have mentioned (on a few forums) one method which may acceptably, practically overcome my so-called 'fatal flaw': 'Planar pieces' (as opposed to 'linear pieces') with greatly enhanced moving capabilities. Personally, I am unwilling to admit 'planar pieces' into any games of my creation as their movements supercede vision (much as the transporter in Star Trek lore). Obviously, you do not find this objectionable, though. This, in tandem with a white-black-black-white turn order, may be the key to your dreams as it would insure that your resulting 3-D games are not too drawish.
