the more time goes on the more i think that magicacsg basically is the standard sdf modeling format like magicavoxel is
@email@example.com maybe we do actually have a standard for this? def wanna do more experiments, this seems to use marching cubes but i wanna raymarch
Made a test export from #MagicaCSG file. 220kb file turned into 104 ply files that took 3.25gb. Luckily i have houdini to wrangle those into on clean mesh file. Otherwise might have been painful. Quality has improved immensely since now you can control resolution of pieces.
MORE TRON STUFF YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE
So, yeah, we just announced a team up with Disney to bring TRON back to video games. Lots more to come and talk about, but today we exhale. Our first collab, Tron: Identity, is wishlistable on Steam now! I'm so proud of my team, and grateful to be here. https://store.steampowered.com/app/2109430
I'd like to add that IMO it's not better to spend time fighting for freedom on windows because the entire system that is responsible for making it is against you having freedom, replacing it with a better system like Linux's decentralized governance isn't giving up at all.
@Blastermaster77@twitter.com WHERE CAN I DOWNLOAD THIS??!
If you want to engage kids nowadays, the solution is pretty clear: sandbox games with social components and a very well defined style are the big thing. Instead of playing games like in Rec Room, let them make their own stuff like in Minecraft/Roblox.Even Fortnite lets you build!
ya know, if it actually ever happens and we can settle on a definition! the web's name was made AFTER they made the thing itself, not like what's happening now :p
I'll make a bold claim: I think this is the case for most people too! Having infinite different things across infinite different platforms that work together in infinite different ways sounds like a total unconstrained nightmare scenario. Clear, defined boundaries are good!
The most I'll ever try to predefine stuff is just a tiny component in a much bigger stack, specifically Stardust in Linux! and that's something people can swap out or reimplement, and the community is way better
If I see another platform I like, I'll just write a script or such to convert assets between the 2 and save the stuff I like, the pressure of defining how EVERY platform has to work just to make tiny things move between them is a headache and honestly sounds like chaos!
honestly i'm just thinking of totally removing myself from that space, it's too stressful for me. I'm glad I can work on stuff I enjoy like Stardust and a project in Neos to remake Tron stuff, there's no pressure there and it's just fun.
Can't we just do things like in web1 where people just made stuff they found useful, others started adopting those things because they found them useful, etc? make tiny bits we can plug in together and not predefine the universe like architecture astronauts?
I want standards of course, but not like how it's happening! There's thousands of voices of companies and projects and people, all clamoring to be the center of attention, the next big thing! I just want a nice place to hang out. VRChat actually did that pretty well before EAC.
It doesn't need portals, doesn't need crypto integration, doesn't need worldwide standards. It's just a nice place where people can build things and talk with each other.
wow the new m*taverse avatars are looking great 🤩 https://twitter.com/stefmowords/status/1559819258372177920
and I mean edit as in "go into blender and paint on it", not just swap out the nose or such.
