Guild of Writers/Korman

Hoikas started things off with news about the Guild of Writers' Korman 0.04, detailing its newer features.  There are several tutorials, some new, some revamped, at the Guild's Wiki tutorial page.  He hinted that a public online demonstration of the Age building plugin might be in the works for a future date.

Editor's Note: We have replaced the raw chatlog with a more complete version courtesy of Tai'lahr.

2016 continues, and the All Guilds Meeting for February had its share of big news and events!  Along with the usual raw and cleansed chatlogs, we have this handy summary of what happened.

Guild of Writers

Hoikas starting things off by mentioning the latest version of Korman (0.03) has been released.  He promised that version 0.04 would not be far behind.  He also hinted at a "Rapid Korman Kontest", similar to the Rapid Age Development contests from years ago, in the near future.

Not only that, but the Guild also released version 24 of Gehn Shard, just in time for the Great Zero "Hacktivation" party that took place after the meeting!

All Guilds Network

Korov'ev made an announcement for Zeke365 about the All Guilds Network.  Its intended function would be to add another layer of intercommunication between explorers and the existing Guilds.  More on this as it develops!

Korman 0.03 Released

The latest version of the next-generation Age building plugin, dubbed Korman, has been released to the public.  There have been many additions to this Blender plugin, and it is catching up fast with PyPRP as far as options.

Some key changes include:

  • Added a half-baked Plasma Light panel
  • Added Link To Age Node
  • Added option to export kAlphaTestHigh for draw order phailures
  • Added Soft Volumes
  • Added Visibility Regions and Effect Visibility Sets
  • Fixed a bug in which meshes would be exported as lamps
  • Fixed an infinite recursion bug with parented objects
  • Fixed a Python traceback in the Water wind settings
  • Improved alpha texture "ADD" blend mode

Installation is relatively easy.  Note that to use the plugin, it is assumed you have at least a basic knowledge of Blender and its workings.  There are also a few handy tutorials you can use to start building your own Age.  Note that the newest options have not been documented yet, but that will change soon.

A big congratulations to the many programmers who have contributed!  Keep checking back for further news on Korman and all things Age development related!
