  1. I think codeless features, on the whole, are useful for rapid prototyping, but genuinely hurt new developers/aspiring game devs in the long run as it often hides the true mechanics behind the system, at the same time they introduce often very badly optimised methods for doing things. That said, the guys have made some good strides into making the engine more accessible and friendly over the past couple of years, with suggestions that more is to come for various parts, node graphs etc, and when these are in place I suspect more developers will enhance features by creating node graph systems
  2. There is/was somebody working on a new consistent theme for the new site as well as reworking content to reduce the 'distribution' of stuff, but i'm not sure of its current status. In theory the timing for all of it would be done best at 4.0 launch, where this stuff can be pushed along with official news of the migration to the new organisaton and repository. As far as the download now button... Pre-NeuProjectManager, short of creating a giant installer containing a bunch of modules and examples, with specific instructions on where/how to get more/new modules i'm not really sure the bes
  3. necro thread: bad derail this particular thread: acceptable i'll make this even worse... having accepted all of that criticism a while ago, everything on that list that already exists (do not get me freaking started on joining every fecking social media platform under the sun) is literally now a work in progress trying to improve the situation. ironic twist most of its being done in the background and unless you are part of the real time chat (discord) you can be forgiven for not knowing. begging forgiveness assumptions were made this would be a semi-speedy happening thing the r
  4. usually, its Americans who are misguided about communism and believe the freedom of speech is god-given and absolute, such erroneous thinking rarely extends to EU zone nations which have certain levels of hate speech laws (like or not) and public order laws (again, like or not) that force people to not be rude without consequence. So that's how it works, freedom, of speech or otherwise is not absolute, not even in the USA, certainly not on the internet, you do not have to like it, but that is reality and that's the reality you have to deal with, I mean it's not like you have no options eith
  5. That's a leap of faith that would bring a tear to the eye of even the most devout believer...
  6. Maybe this should be made false, maybe anybody who is part of the 'steering committee' (in quotes because I don't believe a steering committee is needed period) should be a 'contributor' (also in quotes because GitHub is not the only indicator of contribution). Maybe the steering committee fell apart because those not 'active' just faded away and were removed or just removed themselves because of apathy I literally don't know the ins and out and politics, and I'm sure many people will drop torque like the proverbial hot turd if we get a steering committee back and it has politics again. WE,
  7. And yet you seem to break all of them all of the time, and yes I have committed these sins in the past and yes I have 'met' with moderation, so please, while you do happen to be the most deserving, you are by no means alone, you arent special, you are just louder about it :)
  8. I think some of it is boasting, the whole billion polys being crunched to 20 million is really just a decimation algorithm at this point probably being run on some custom and special processing units, in the long run, it will be interesting to see how this translates to the PC sphere and whether or not we are starting to move into the world of even more GPU threads or processor units for high-specification games. It's certainly interesting to watch, especially given the uptake of photogrammetry within gaming. 8K textures are pure boasting, apart from rare and specialist areas, utterly usele
  9. OK, lets have a quick look.... Firstly, try to find a single example where I suggested you shouldn't make suggestions, I dare you. Secondly, try to find a single example where I said any suggestion you made regards engine improvement is dumb, or that I disagreed with improvement, I double dare you. now... Very angry people by nature will stay very angry for nothing :lol: (I also don't need to compare T3D no more to others engines and let that to other people) While it's unknown roadmap, will T3D become as intutive and easy to use about interface, code editor,
  10. and there you go again offering insults and attributing malice, so yes, I do believe you are a troll, I say so because of your attitude and tone, not once have I disputed any of the things you 'demanded' before you 'used' torque, you speak without qualification on may od the issues, you just make demands before doing any research, but you continue to insult and attribute malice, even after being educated by the people who are doing all the work. By all means, get the engine and post some bugs, if you are superior perhaps you can fix some, but it takes a troll to sit and do nothing but criti
  11. the wiki is Wikidot, the general website should be covered by GitHub system, and I did read an article the other day that proves google is making the arbitrary decision for no good reason that effects ranking for no good reason, yet again proves that silicon valley is running your life whether you like it or not. Your website security is not enhanced by https, https is all about data between the endpoints, so if you have a shop then its a priority, you could argue the toss about logins to non-essential sites, but sites that require no user input it's wholly unnecessary. it also doesn't stop Go
  12. why is https such a big deal, I'm pretty sure nobody even knows why it even exists anymore? certainly, if they demand it for everything Also, I'm thinking razer as a troll now, his language is offensive and demeaning, he like duion attributes malice to everything he does agree on, he's also constantly shilling godot on top of that.
  13. For most of your blurb... [himg=200]https://i.vgy.me/n8IBiL.png[/himg] As far as the twitter thing, as far as I know, it is owned by a community member, not by the 'organization', and honestly, I'm not sure what should be put on there, it highlights a few games being developed here and there, even if it was controlled by the organisation, I'm not sure much more could be done. Does a weekly progress report on jeffs blog seem like a good thing? perhaps picking out a few of the screenshots from artists alley in discord?
  14. All nuts are seeds, not all seeds are nuts
  15. maybe you are correct, I believe a game is limited by definitions, you believe that the term game is so broad it's meaningless, but congratulations on being a bad sport, enjoy your duel with duion, you deserve each other.
  16. that doesnt define game, it just defines a computer version of a game, your definition or understanding is either limited by language or actually dishonest. There are an awful lot of definitions of game, including prostitution, so I guess we can start suggesting that all games are whores :p
  17. Not that I object to the creation of art using game engines as a medium, but for the love of God, stop calling them games. walking simulators and their ilk are to games what a duct-taped banana is to art, just... stop...
  18. Heres the rulers boys, just slap em on the table and lets go.....
  19. your definition of AAA is subjective, period, stamping your foot down and having to state in entirety your definition of AAA is absolute proof that this is not objective, seems to be the favourite hobby of the modern internet dweller, just redefine the terms they want as their own and claim this is the one and only gospel truth. You may as well be comparing my hairy arm to your favourite plumbers hairy arm, and daring somebody to disagree, maybe the moderator should restore my original post since you pair of numbnuts have gone on to prove my original point, neither of you has a clue about t

    JSON

    torque does have an older JSON library built into it somewhere in its depths, tho I'm not sure if anywhere there's any scripts for TS examples.
  22. Given the topic is wholly derailed at this point, thanks duion... o tly? maybe just an issue of verbiage but given your animosity towards jeff, I figured an intervention was required. the part 'taken control' is less accurate than he was the last man standing after everyone else jumped ship. There are mechanisms in place to solve this problem, which on the whole is still based on the fact that everyone is working on the GarageGames repository (do you still need to 'sign' that bullshit form to be able to work contribute?), for which there is no actual admin because GG is a ghost organ
  23. I think you'd need to get more details from @Timmy, but I believe this is more than just a one-off thing, from what I've seen discussed in discord there's some back and forth discussion between Timmy and the forge devs. If this lives up to even half the hype then this thing will potentially be one of the biggest things in open source engine development for a long long time. I think the future of t3d is looking brighter and brighter because of things like this.
  24. sounds like you have a similar system to what we have in the UK. There's a solde trader which is a named person trading as 'company name' which protects that name. Another thing thats useful in a variety of places is the internet domain name in the name of the 'company' for example I have bloodknightstudios.co.uk (current seeking a new website) but I have owned the domain name for a number of years this offers some (measly maybe but some) protection. But as Lukas points out such things do vary in detail from country to country
