Read the Development Diary for an inside look at World Machine's progress!

A "finished in ..." timer would be good...

.. so we could see, how long it will approximatly take, till the build is done.

unfortunately, without some major additional changes this is probably not going to be very useful -- at least, no more useful than the notorious windows file copy dialog (http://xkcd.com/612/). Although an  improved estimator is possible, it would take a fair bit of dev time, that honestly I think is better spent on different new features!

Ah ok, I see.
So no "guesstimation timer", i guess. Hmmm, would have been a cool feature to know, if a process will take a few hours or a few days.

If you make something, you want to make it a good "something" - This in turn will take time, I understand!


i would prefer to hear an audio signal when the process is completed.

Sorry if I'm getting off-topic, though it sort of fits here.  I would like to see some type of batch build.  Of course it would need to automatically do the output saves, but typically we (or I) set that up before making the final build.  Just feed it a bunch of tmd's and see you in the morning (a nice touch would be an auto shutdown option.)


+1 for Automatic Shutdown on Completion. I don't like my PC running all night.
