    Yeah cinder is more like it I guess - arguably a much better scale than the Unreal Engine. :) Frankly, if I had to do a simple, mute 3D maze game, I'd write it in core GL 3/4, C++11 and probably GLFW...

    At least two, the usual render-to-texture approach using framebuffer objects and image load/store - however, the most recent GPU clipmaps paper is from 2005 and the latter was only introduced in GL...

    Can you quote some passages? If they are ambiguous or incorrect it's worth filing a spec bug report.

    Nope, there's actually a separate attachment point for depth-renderable targets, i.e. DEPTH_ATTACHMENT (or DEPTH_STENCIL_ATTACHMENT depending on what you need).

    Although in the GLSL spec, no vendor to this day seems to actually implement GLSL noise functions. So, you'll have to search for ways to generate noise in a shader. This article presents an...

    If you're forced to maintain a legacy code base, usually due to economical, time and compatibility constraints, by all means, keep the legacy...

    This cannot be surprising, Hugues Hoppe being a principal researcher at Microsoft Reasearch. ;)

    However, from my experience, mapping the algorithm to OpenGL is straightforward.

    Aleksandar: I didn't say it was superior or the only way - I just proposed it as another contemporary alternative. It's definitely better than ROAMing. ;)

    I don't see why not. BTW, just to get my daily nitpicking on, the GL doesn't know the format RGBA8888. It's RGBA8. :)

    Also, if you attach multiple images with different base/internal types and the...
