Posted by Josh Klint, 11 February 2016 · 193 views

Workshop Spam

Posted by Josh Klint, 08 February 2016 · 275 views

It appears that items that were released within a certain time period, right when the Workshop was made public, received a lot of "spam" comments like below, from people who don't even own Leadwerks:

I have nothing against TJHeldna's cola can, but I don't believe it is the top-rated item in the Workshop...


Workshop update

The Workshop interface is updated with new options to let you quickly find items to use in your games.

When you buy an item, you will now be directed to the Steam purchase page in the editor interface itself, without having to sign into an external web browser.

Finished character model

Posted by Josh Klint, 04 February 2016 · 233 views

I've received our finished "Merc" character, made exclusively for Leadwerks!  Say hello:

He still needs a simple rifle weapon and some scripting to make him actually shoot and not just punch people with the butt of his gun.  When that happens, watch out, he is going to be one mean enemy (or perhaps a valuable...


Beta update available

An update is available on the beta branch.  This adds an optional recursive parameter to the Entity::SetCollisionType command and updates the MonsterAI script so that not so many special settings need to be adjusted to make enemies work.


Slight Rebrand

Leadwerks Game Engine: Indie Edition on Steam is now just "Leadwerks Game Engine".

Leadwerks Game Engine: Standard Edition on Steam is now "Leadwerks Game Engine: Professional Edition".

Workshop Expansion

Posted by Josh Klint, 15 January 2016 · 303 views

You've probably noticed a lot of new content and changes in the Workshop this week.  Monday I plan to launch "paid items" in the Workshop.  This is something I've wanted to do for several years, and it benefits everyone:
More content will be available for you, ready to...

With the Winter Sale wrapping up, I now have enough information to decide how to go forward with the business of Leadwerks.
