I make stuffs MY rules. This means:
Wanna use anything here for your projects? Then:
·Share the source (link to repo is enough)
·You can modify
·You can sell
·If you modify, be a bro and share your mods
That covers the bases; if you have any questions then ask away.
This here repo is where I will upload things:
And what’s in there?
- Material-making tools
- Materials made with those tools
- A panel for quickly creating and editing materials
- Nodegroups and my awesome shader
- An archiver for the textures (mesh data WIP)
- [WIP] Terrain tools
- [WIP] A custom blend-data link/append util
One hurdle you’ll have to go through: downloading some dependencies.
Why? Well, because rather than eating up my bandwidth with a million PNGs and OBJs, data for the project is going to be saved in custom, highly-compressed formats. To unpack these, you will need BlackMagic – which you can get here:
Just unpack the zip into UPBGE_ASSETS and you should be good to go.
Builds of BlackMagic for Linux & Mac: Nonexistent.
- Me moving to Linux: pending. It’ll happen someday.
- Me *ever* making builds for MacOS: not going to happen.
Right now it only applies to textures, but that is soon to change.
Regarding assets: Of course I’m only going to do the lo-fi things I do; but I actually want __YOU__ to tell me what you’d like to see more of. Sci-fi? Western? WWII? Go ahead and do that – or don’t, and I’ll simply default to making whatever I feel like.
As far as code is concerned: If you have an idea for a tool or feature that’s lacking then you can pitch it to me, but be sensible about it; there are some things I can’t do.
Want to contribute? If you don’t know where to start, you can message me.
All documentation pending. Explaining is tough.
Tutorials on how to use my tools also very much pending. For now there’s these videos, if you’re up for doing some figuring out on your own.
Final note: I’ve decided to fully integrate this with the larger project I have going on with my little framework and ESPECTRO shell – but that will take time.
As for 0.3.0 users who might want to use any tools or assets you can work on porting things yourselves, I’m never gonna do it; but please, feel free to ask me questions if my code doesn’t make any sense.
Will edit this thread to death and back as time goes.
