    Wow, was away and it this community always surprises me when return. This is very exciting and will help immensely in certain areas of my mission! Thank you guys for working on this!
    Thanks gamophyte! Can I ask what do you mean specifically regarding areas of your mission?

    Since this uses Dromed underneath, is this independent instructions to the brushes, or is it utilizing multibrushes? I hope they are purely using independent commands on each brush.
    We do not use Dromed at this point. Dromed is only used for portalization + other build related stuff and then game mode. We built our own environment totally from scratch and we can forget about multibrushes. You surely have to watch all other videos at this point or at least the latest one

    Then, a wishlist item is for this editor to auto generate room brushes to fill out a detected air brush path, to help fill out odd shaped places all while not bleeding into near by room.
    I like this idea very much. I think I will put this into our backlog now. By "tesselating room brushes" you mean to cover up irregular places with staircase-like setup of roombrushes, right?

    Cheers,
    Konrad

    https://www.ttlg.com/forums/showthread.php?t=148683 - There's going to be so many chunks and debris that any advantage of quick placement and locking things into place, cloning objects, will help a lot. It is going to be tedious to do the debris and vegetation at different angles to feel visually natural.

    Oops yes you're right. I think before I could get far, I was having fainting spells watching all those brushes moving haha .

    Thanks! And yes, that's right, to cover our bases for irregular places because unlike one air cube to Shift+Insert you have to manually place many room brushes to fill out such areas.

    The other benefit I was hoping for was to auto generate even for regular box air brushes; to still be able to select an area (volume) in total to auto room brush at once.

    This will save a lot of time, and it could detect to do this for what is the air spaces. But, you don't want the outside of the city walls where the player doesn't go, so let the user select area volumes to auto air brush.

    Anyway, once again, amazing project. I often wondered if this was possible but dismissed it as a pipe dream.

    The project is still in... development...

    Sorry guys you need to wait so long. Real life always gets priority, but the project is still being worked on.

    I strive to come up with some interesting video update regarding the Object System implementation.

    Source code will be published after certain milestone. Hard to say when exactly, as things have slowed down a bit lately.

    I think it's fair to say, that the work on the project has slowed down significantly over last few months due to our real life stuff - work, family etc...

    But it's not stopped completely - it's just that not every single thing is equaly exciting to announce. For example recently I've been trying to replace and/or update the vector and matrix math library, as the one I used turned out to be insufficient (for example missing conversion to euler angles) and it uses column major order, rather than row major, which is a bit less intuitive and less convenient for dark engine.
    I've been also looking into cythonizing some of it to get more speed. Once I get this low level and somewhat boring stuff out of the way, I'll be able to focus again on adding new features. And post some screengrabs or videos.

    You underestimate the number of Matrix fans. I love the Matrix! Best of luck to the FMEditor team

    Ha, ha! Sure, we remember about Matrix fans - especially Matrix3 and Matrix4 - it's class!
