    My 3D models, and video tutorials for the project.

    Considering the fact that I'm relatively new to the project, I won't take much of credit. Most of the rendering work was done by people over the years - and they did an amazing job of it as well :D > In addition to this all modules use the Terasology root folder. The primary reason to separate...

    What kind of tileset organization would you recommend?

    My 3D models, and video tutorials for the project.

    Jow that I have a little more time - yes, the tileset is regenerated every time the game is started. Most of the tiles you see are in the "core" module. If you just want to change their appearance, go to "modules/Core/assets/blocktiles" and change the png there. You might have to recompile the...

    [GSoC 2018] Porting Destination Sol over to ECS

    Sorry for the delay. First off, I would *highly* recommend joining irc/discord, since it's way easier to communicate there (tons of other people there as well). Now, onto your questions. > No work has been started to port the game’s Object Oriented entities over to an ECS system. That is...

    Hey! :D As manu mentioned, get started with some contributions. Play around a little, admire some of the amazing graphical effects we have (water with and without waves, the shadows and the ambient occlusion, the clouds, the skysphere and other interesting stuff), dive into some code (not...

    Contributor Hi, I'm Devi!

    Regarding slack: As much as I wish otherwise, no secret handshake. It needs an invitation, which we hand out pretty freely, once everyone - us, and you - feels like you plan on sticking around. Give it a week or so, you'll get your invitation :D In the meantime, since all general chat is bridged...

    Contributor Hi, I'm Devi!

    Heya! Great to see you hop onto the forum :D Regarding the exploration world: This was actually a gsoc project last summer (search or ask around for "Lost", although it was not *entirely* completed due to lack of supporting features. That being said, it still got a lot of work done, including...

    Intro Hey Terasology!!

    sweety, I highly recommend you join our irc or discord server, since that makes it easier to communicate. Regarding the gradlew: if you're using powershell on windows or linux or osx, you'll need ./gradlew instead of plain gradlew. Here is a quick little tutorial for getting started with irc...

    Google Code-In 2017 Mentor Recap Thread!

    1. Tell us about yourself! For most of you, I'm vampcat, with only a rare few knowing my real identity. [/SPOILER] I usually lurk in the pixel-forge, with an occasional excursion or two outside for random stuff. Elegant code is my fetish, and debugging my favourite pass-time. Oh, and I like to...

    Remove concept of material assets?

    I seem to recall my last conversation about Materials was with Immortius when I started doing Terasology, and he mentioned things like changing the transparency of texture and stuff as potential use. However, I believe most of this can be handled via components, so I second this idea.

    Evil Empire

    Whaaaa, how did I forget these gems? I'll add them to the game very soon. With some particles, these should look amazing.
