Let's take a sec here and notice something genuinely great happening in the US government: the Consumer Finance Protection Bureau's stunning, unbroken streak of major, muscular victories over the forces of corporate corruption, with the backing of the Supreme Court (yes, that Supreme Court), and which is only speeding up!

@pluralistic Did you already know this? It turns a Mastodon thread into a neat blog layout:

Started a new MagicaCSG SDF 3D modeling project…

I guess it's easy to see what it's going to be. 😉

More updates will follow in this thread.

From the ar(t)chive…

Stylized 3D illustration for an early-2000s article in the Dutch PC-Active magazine, about Wi-Fi hotspots, which were new and scarce back then.

In the late 1980s, real-life imagery was fed to a computer via a digitizer device.

I had an old black and white security camera connected to my Amiga computer via a Digi-View digitizer.

Digitizing was so slow that if you moved your face during a scan, the results were perfect youngster fun.

So me and my game dev partners did a peculiar photo session.

I remember we laughed so hard at the results that our stomachs ached. 😆

The latest MagicaCSG version includes nested sub-objects for compound Boolean operations.

Kitbashing has never been this effortless. Polygons and NURBS are sooo 1990s. 😉

Short video demonstration of compound Boolean operations in the MagicaCSG 3D editor.

Trying the new Boolean subgroups in MagicaCSG.

Made a little video to show the difference between Booleans using separate elements and combined elements…

Our small game dev team completed the Windows platform game Moon Child in 1997.

Our coder managed to revive the game, embedded in a web page:

https://proofofconcept.nl/portfolio/moonchild/

Increase the page zoom level of your browser to enlarge the game frame to a near full-screen experience.

Before playing, click on the "Enable cheat" link below the game frame, for unlimited lives.

Control Moon Child with the cursor keys and spacebar.

Enjoy!

Stylized 3D illustration for an early-2000s article in the Dutch PC-Active magazine, about a mobile phone virus. This was before smartphones were introduced. 🙂

👍 I don't know if the Extension can also convert layered V-Ray materials, but it's worth a try.

Browsing through the new Extensions section (previously called "Add-ons") in the Blender 4.3 Alpha build preferences, I stumbled upon an extension that should be able to import native 3ds Max files. It even supports V-Ray and Corona materials. I haven't tested it yet, but I hope it works!

Browsing through the new Extensions section (previously called "Add-ons") in the Blender 4.3 Alpha preferences, I stumbled upon an extension offering lots of useful, ready-to-use Geometry Node functions, including instanced radial arrays, grid arrays and spherical arrays…

If you dislike Blender's cumbersome new Add Modifier menu with tedious submenus in Blender 4.x, I can recommend the Old Modifier Menu add-on.

There's a free version, but version 2 costs less than $1, and the add-on is very customizable via Blender's preferences. I love it.

Watched Perfect Days (2023) by Wim Wenders. I liked it. Recommended if you like contemplative films like Paterson (2016) and/or Lost in Translation (2003).

Started a new SDF modeling project in MagicaCSG.

It's going to be a weird organic-shaped retro-scifi spacecraft. 🚀

Keep track of this thread for updates.
