Are we able to put linking books into our ages with this release or (as i understand) not?

Linking books require at least clickables and either linking responders (which should not be used) or integration of Python scripts with the age. Neither is supported currently.
I prefer e-mails to "diafero arcor de" (after adding the at and the dot) over PMs.

Thank you Branon et al for this. I finally have a new computer and the time to explore age creation, and I've struggled to find tutorials that showed where the buttons are in Blender 2.57. Thankfully there are a few, and your video was very helpful. I uninstalled Blender 64bit and installed 32 bit as well since the former wouldn't work. I followed the video and the basic tutorials on the wiki, and I am now walking about in a very boring age. But I'm thrilled because I wrote it, it loaded, and I didn't fall through the floor. A whole new realm of possibilities has now opened up for me. :) Many thanks!

With this now available, I am finally going to download Blender and learn how to use it.

Also, does this mean we currently cannot put Python into our Ages? If so, when will this become available?

Thanks everyone for doing such a great job!

b) that's odd... Can you repeat it with the same .blend file? If so, can you send me that file somehow so I can take a look and try to see what's up?

b) Yes, I can repeat it. You will find the URL for getting the .blend file in your PMs.

I think i noticed a little bug in PyPRP2.

When you want to enable the PyPRP2 add on then you have to check a little box.
Coincidently i did a dubbelclick on the checkbox resulting in a "uncheck" situation again.
After that it was impossible to enable it again. It is not a continious toggle!
To enable it , i first had to close Blender.
After the restart of Blender , i was able to check the box again.

I repeated this to be sure it has always this behaviour.
The surrounding checkboxes can be toggled on and off normally.

It took me some time before I was aware why I could not enable it. :)
Those wonderfull Worlds are called " Ages" , because that is what it takes to build one.

Awesome! Thanks so much! Will there be a later 64bit edition? Is 64bit really faster than 32bit? I've always heard it is, but honestly don't know for certain. Can't wait to use this. Thanks so much. And it is my birthday today so this is really a great present. lol

64-bit is sometimes faster and sometimes slower, it depends on the program.

The reason there's no 64-bit PyPRP2 is because the ancient version of PhysX that MOUL uses doesn't have a 64-bit library. I could build a 64-bit version with a newer PhysX, but then ages you export for MOUL wouldn't work in the CWE clients that most people are building currently.

The same bug occurs if you use file->new. I haven't really tried to track the bug down yet, it's kind of irritating, but doesn't impact core functionality. It looks like we're not unloading properly. Could just be a typo in a function name.

I got your PM. I don't think I'll be able to get to it until Monday. I'll let you know what I find.

Same bug happens to me everytime i export an age. It always exports the scene.prp into my default folder above my export folder. Even when i follow your example video step by step it happens. Tried it with 2 different blender installations and with 2 different ages, both times same effect, but easy fix if you know it

Try saving your blend file with your export path set, then try reopening the blend and checking the export path is still set. If it is still set, try exporting again.


Edit: I just fixed the object unloading bug. In the next release you should be able to unload and reload the add-on as many times as you want. :)
