Please, be nice and take a look at what Erwin is doing

I have only one thing to say:

Bf-blender-CVS Digest

.

3. SVN commit: /data/svn/bf-blender [16568] trunk/blender:

wow… pretty awesome…

So it may well happen, coolios brah

I figured something like that was what was going on when my build gave me an error.

libextern_bullet2softbody.a looks promising…
This will be fun to play with.

Hmmmm… If only I were a programmer… Ah I shouldn’t worry I’ll be in a few years XD

Log Message:

rev 16569 broke building.
Looks like bullets Extras/ConvexDecomposition is missing from blenders source.
comment functions so it builds for now.

I dont see any pictures.

you must be heartbroken

@jesusFrk that’s because they are still working on it… quite a lot of work needs to be done… but the cool thing is that it’s happening. Maybe we will see more GE inspired projects like apricot after this.

if want to see some pictures of what it could look like… download the bullet soft body demo… from here…

there is a demo for download here.

If you read the mailing lists you see softbodies in the BGE are progressing at a steady rate, as well as generally upgrading Bullet itself.
