Quadspinner and Stephen should merge their stuff and make Terrain generating great again ^^

I absolutely agree!

Maybe he's embarrased, but agreed, we need some input - I'd rather KNOW what is going on than to just hear that there's a new version out without something.

My maintenance expired a while ago, so I didn't get the last beta. I was waiting to see if he'd died or been assassinated or something before renewing. I'm still not sure now.

I too, have offered to do contract work for him. If he's too busy, he's got options.

Almost a month since he logged in for the last time. Seems to be gone silent again...

Just wanted to say I agree.

My subscription ran out JUST before the last beta expired, and I can't download the new beta.

The right thing to do would be for Stephen to allow our subscriptions to be renewed until the release comes out. I'll gladly pay for a (stable) release maintenance, but I've been there from practically the start, and don't feel I need to pay for a beta ... especially with what the release schedule has been.

Can you help us out Stephen? If you're still listening?

Thanks,

I think Stephen has just updated the site -- randomly logged in today to check out the upgrades center and I have a years worth of free additional updates + the newest WM builds which I didn't have access to before.

Huge +1 for my confidence in the future development of WM (2 new builds so far).

That's good - I apparently don't get the free updates.

I had to make a decision - upgrade something that seemed to be dead? I mean, I didn't know if Stephen was all right :(

My subscription apparently lapsed in September 25, 2016 :(  :(

jgwinner, did you actually try to download the update?  Remnant extended the update eligibility substantially due to the last year's non-activity, so if you had a license you might get the download.

World machine is developed and maintained by "World Machine Software LLC" (Stephen Schmitt). Geoglyph is a plugin for world machine developed and maintained by "Quadspinner", a separate company. Now "Quadspinner" is working on their own standalone solution for terrain design, known as "TOR platform" at the moment. It's still under heavy development and not much information has been revealed.

So basically TOR is an alternative to Worldmachine and geoglyph will be mostly included in it?

@Naima: Yes, it is an independent terrain design tool. Although it would take a few versions before it's as mature as world machine. So I think geoglyph development may continue for a while, as I read somewhere that TOR will have plugin integration with geoglyph. It has some geoglyph features implemented in house for sure, so maybe they will replace geoglyph soon. We are still waiting for more info. You can apply for the public beta starting soon here:

3016 is available. Just downloaded it yesterday. So far, no crash, but didn't play around a lot up to now.

So I am guessing this is symptomatic - gotta swamp the forum with angry posts to make author to post something in the blog. We are in the middle of October and no updates :/

I really wonder about his strategy. Maybe it would be better, if he gives the program into someone else's hands.
