I am thinking of doing some recurring live streams of coding sessions as a chance to connect with the IceBlink community and also to keep me on a coding schedule :D

I'll try and do either Saturdays or Sundays at 12:00 Arizona time.

Tomorrow's stream: https://youtu.be/rM7kETVl3K8

Feel free to drop by for a few minutes and say hi if you get a chance. You can also watch after the fact, but coding is pretty boring so probably not worth watching :lol:

EDIT: I switched the starting time to noon.

I posted a quick update to show where I am at with the IB Unity Inventory Screen and get some feedback:

It isn't a lot of progress since the last stream, but it is some progress :lol:

That inventory looks a lot more modern and intuitive. I like the way it easily brings up the comparison with the equipped weapon - makes life so much easier.

I like the comparison toggle as well. Next up is to make all the UI elements load up the images from the module's "ui" folder and use those instead of the default ui images (assuming the module has a replacement image with the same filename). I will also need to think about using the builder's MainMap and CombatMap UI layout file that describes a custom layout, etc.

To celebrate the 10 year anniversary of IceBlink Engine (yes, it has been a decade already :D ), I thought I would try and do some streams on Twitch of me playing some of the modules. Maybe I'll play some of the earlier modules first.

I'll be streaming on Sundays at 1PM Arizona time (I'm the same as Denver right now).

Sounds good! I can't believe it has been ten years already, but that's right. The Kickstarter for IceBlink was funded back in November 2012.

slowdive, I was able to watch yesterday's stream of Raventhal a few hours afterward. It was great to see the 3D view in the iceblink basic version. Looked like a lot of fun with the fans following along.

It was a ton of fun! I posted it on YouTube so that you and Pongo could check it out. I think I will continue the adventure this Sunday at the same time for about an hour or so (live on Twitch) and then post again to YouTube. I stream and record at the same time since Twitch doesn't keep videos for very long. Happy to hear that you were able to watch a bit and that you enjoyed it.
