Hereby an overview of the short term plans and a trailer of the beta for you to enjoy.
- Improve world loading (streaming!). Have the server only send chuncks that are close by. Fixing this will make way larger worlds possible.
- Check Internet Explorer
- A patcher for the standalone versions of the game (Mac & Windows). This'll also work for the dedicated server as that's integrated in the client.
- Character viewer
- Character editor: Customize your character
- Change UV layout for easier custom skins
- Animations: Run,(jump?), MakePhoto
- Integrate it with user registration & login. Bah PhpBB doesnt seem to be a good option so I'm probably going for phorum
- Create blueprints of pieces of a level.
- You need a high enough Architect level/Blueprint skill for certain sizes.
- Server settings: blueprintAllowed
- Server building rights
- Everyone per default. Unless useBuildersList is on, then it uses the builderlist to check who is allowed to build.
- ShareIt; await comment about usage of free email addresses. If this is a problem we might need to look to other payment providers such as FastSpring, Avangate, ... ?
