During a discussion on paying for new features and fixes within the GE, a very cool system for submitting, tracking and potentially sponsoring these requests was found.
As someone who has fixed a few bugs in the GE, I took the opportunity to set up an account to see how this system might work in practice ( the system shows my name as a developer, which of course will include all other developers if the GE community sees this is a way to move forward ).
Here is the link…
Before you enter GE feature requests, have a look at how it is used on other projects - it’ll give you an idea of the type of information to enter.
Also, breaking up larger tasks might ensure that those tasks get completed sooner. I’m sure the OGRE integration will be a huge request, but just saying “Replace OGRE as the default GE” is a bit too generic.
Its maybe best to just see what happens with the system for the next number of days and then give comments and suggestions then, rather than try to predict the outcome now.
I have a good feeling about this type of feature request system as I had mentioned in a previous post, as I’d personally put some dollars towards the OGRE / GE integration.
Hopefully the feature request list ( and optional bounties ) will give a clear picture of what you guys are looking for, with regards the Game Engine, new features and fixes etc.
