Is it possible to code this 3D Sphere in Winamp?
It´s coded my Ken Silverman [created Buildt engine]

I assume you mean "code in AVS" rather than "code in Winamp".
It's easy, but the result is kind of boring... there are lots of more exciting things to do with it.
Note that the sphere I generate is not exactly the same as in the program you specified: points are randomly distributed rather than equally spaced apart. The method I used for generating the unit vectors is rather messy too because I map a cube to a sphere: this results in clustering at the 8 corners (turn up the n value to make this more visible).
To prevent this, add
under the line
in the superscope's point code. This will generate a correct uniform random distribution (though you have less points).

maybe you have already coded so many exiting things you can´t enjoy this nice simple sphere:D hehe I do;)

Dude, no file :p
Since there's a sharing thing going on, I thought I'd share mine too. Thers were part of an idea that hasn't come to fruition. The never really worked to my satisfaction.

the first one still looked quite spherish the second one was just a mess... like a figure eight or something? The first one was cool.
PS I really love the sort of competition element here, makes everyone want to improve, and works!

Nifty... I liked Aliendesaster's second one better than the first. Meh... I'll have to see what I can do with it now.

Man, I'm sick of spheres so here is a golden dodecahedron, it's one of my entries for the deviantart bw contest.
