Editor 0.6.0

We completed Editor 0.6.0. You can see 0.6.0 in action here.
Editor 0.6.0 got the following new features:

  1. Camera and light node positioning
  2. Node rotation along X axis
  3. Node scripting support
  4. Thumbnail dialog to preview models when editing scene node model properties
  5. Node copying and pasting
  6. Node selection by LMB click in the scene
  7. Window geometry and state restoration after restart

We don’t have 0.7.0 completion date at the moment, because we decided to take some time to set up a roadmap for Shuan and Mahjong 2. Once done, we will share 0.7.0 completion date and its feature list along with the roadmap.

Editor 0.4.0 and plans for 0.5.0

We completed Editor 0.4.0 in January. As it was planned, it only contains basic abilities to open and save a project. The major goal was to make MJIN, Python and Qt work together (we were unable to use PyQt or PySide due to technical difficulties).
You can see 0.4.0 in action here.
We started Editor 0.5.0 development in February. It’s 45% ready at the moment.
Editor 0.5.0 planned features:

  1. Scene node tree editing
  2. Property browser with nodes’ position and model editing
  3. Qt5 support for the sake of easy building on various Linux distributions

We estimate to complete it in April.

Seems like we’re fine.

For the last week, we haven’t encountered any site crashes, so it seems, that everything is good.
We’ll tell you about our progress soon.

Technical difficulties

We have encountered some technical difficulties so site can disappear from time to time, but everything will be ok very soon.

Our site is moving to another hosting

We’re planning to move our site to another hosting. We hope, you will not notice any problems, but there might be some for a next few days.
UPDATE: If you’re reading this, it means that you are on our new site. It looks just like the old one.

Editor roadmap for 0.4.0

The development of Editor 0.3.0 showed us, that usage of custom GUI was not a perfect idea. A few months ago, custom GUI seemed as a simpler way to do things, but it turned out to lack many little features, that are crucial if you’re planning to make a convenient tool.
In the end, we decided to do what we wanted to do in the first place – to use Qt library as the GUI library for our editor.
So, we’ll rewrite the Editor with Qt interface and a little bit refreshed project concept in mind. We plan to release the editor with new GUI and a set of basic features like loading and saving projects in May.

User survey ends today

About a year ago, we started the user survey, in order to find out what do you think of the Open Source in general and about our project in particular.
Today we’re closing this survey. It took time, but we’ve got plenty of answers. Thank you for that.

We’ll share our thought about the results of the survey in one of the future articles.

After the survey, every one of you has got the code. With this code, you’ll be able to access the alpha test of the OGS Mahjong 2, as soon as we’ll be ready to start it (i can’t promise anything, but we’re planning to do it in 2015).
Also, you’ll be able to choose between the deluxe version of OGS Mahjong 2 and the deluxe version of Shuan, as soon as we’ll be ready to release these games.

We wish you all a Happy New Year. Thank you for being with us. See you next year.

P.S. If you have lost your code – write us a letter, we’ll figure something out.

And another year has passed

Hello!

So, this year comes to the end. There were very little publications from us during this year. We haven’t stopped working, but right now our work is in the phase, when we have nothing to show. And the spare time of the team members is rarely more then 30-40 hours a month.

But our work continues. And you can find out some details in the new article from our programmer Michael Kapelko.

Our work continues

Hi there!
It’s been a while, since we wrote anything here. Yeah, we know it’s bad, but last 3 months were very busy for everyone of us, leaving very little spare time. And we’re trying to use this time to improve the game engine instead of creating something we can show right now.
We decided to concentrate all our efforts in developing a simple, but reliable toolset, which will help us in the development of OGS Mahjong 2 and Shuan.
If you follow Michael’s YouTube channel, you’ve already seen some simple videos of our material and action systems.
I want to tell a bit more about them. Continue reading
