Notes

This release adds support for mouse look with the 3D camera object! This consists of two parts. Firstly the Mouse plugin now supports pointer lock, which means the cursor disappears and just provides movement values in the On movement trigger, so you can keep turning on a spot without the mouse reaching the edge of the window. Secondly the 3D camera object now has a Rotate camera action, to which you can pass the mouse movement values and get a 3D mouse look. The First-person platformer example has been updated with mouse look, so take a look at that for an example.

There's also now support for value tracks in timelines. These allow you to just have a changing number on a timeline. For example it could be used for a volume level that changes as the timeline plays.

There's also a batch of bug fixes, a new 3D example, and support for sorting animation folders in the Animations Editor. As ever stay tuned for more updates!

    I'm sure this will get overlooked by the 3D stuff, but thank you for the value track in the Timeline. That opens it up to be much more general purpose and more useful overall!

  • Does anyone else feel like christmas comes once a week now? These new releases are so exciting!

  • It's since R262 I was looking for a mouse pointer locking system. You are reading my mind. Thank you!

  • Thanks , Importing .obj files would be nice

  • yeaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhh!!!!!!!

    very useful! thank u!!

    Can u add .obj import options?

  • I want to make a full-fledged 3D game.

    1) I am missing the ability to import from blender and 3ds Max

    2) It will also be cool if there is a full-fledged 3D editor for building

  • Thanks a lot for the pointer lock ^_^
