I’m currently playing with the idea to have achievements as an add-on for blender, having a screen or something in there to be able to manage the "learning experience and objectives"of blenderheads.
Let me elaborate: blender is getting HUGE, a lot of newbies have no idea where to start and are often like children in a candy factory: so much choice you can´t choose anymore.
I´m suggesting making an add-on with achievements, set to either appear ìn your face on the splash screen, or quietly in a background menu. That way people can pick stuff they want to learn and get to see a relevant tutorial online or a link to stuff, off course there´s the usual
epeen involved and and the higher you score, the more blenderhead you are )or the better at cheating’.
As an example:
-Blender open for more than 5 minutes- 10 points
- render button pressed - -5points
- I´m a picture god- you have at least 3 light sources and they´re not the default settings when you pressed f12, tutorialshere - 20 points.
-fluid simulation used, see www.tutorialshere to find out how to use them, to get achievement change at least the following setting before baking (settingslist). -40 points-
and so on.
