Chelaru,

Have you used this thing?
Hello, i don't use it. I just found out. My idea was to ask the forum, maybe some one from the SC will give us some info.

You mean the Steering Committee? That does not exist anymore for years now, just in case you did not know.

Regarding to the topic, I don't even know what this is good for, it just says rendering framework, what are you supposed to use it for? It seems to be middleware not designed for end users.

It has T3d at the end. T3d is used as a engine from what i get.

I believe they're making this claim based off of a post Timmy made over a year ago in which he talked about writing a new gfx layer for 4.2 that would rely on The Forge:

viewtopic.php?t=1386#p10430

I doubt we'll see much progress on that any time soon and as of now T3D doesn't use The Forge at all.

I think you'd need to get more details from @ Timmy, but I believe this is more than just a one-off thing, from what I've seen discussed in discord there's some back and forth discussion between Timmy and the forge devs.

If this lives up to even half the hype then this thing will potentially be one of the biggest things in open source engine development for a long long time. I think the future of t3d is looking brighter and brighter because of things like this.

Is @ Timmy alive? Didn't he had a "breakup" with t3d ?

The Steering Committee hasn't been around for two years. Should I star a new thread for this topic, or can you reply on this one! So who is steering Torque Development?

It is more like 3-5 years depending on how you define it, strictly speaking as soon as Torque3D was in the hands of the nonexistent community the idea of the steering committee and everything that came with it was more or less abandoned. JeffR has taken control of it all now, since he is the only active existing member left with write access to the repository, I would still be there as well, but they threw me out. It is probably pointless to create new threads about that, I did multiple times and it was still ignored.
