Maybe there should be a "yeah, we know we need to work on the SDK for Fprime, shut up about it already"-sticky? ;)

We're certainly excited to see what Worley Labs has been able to accomplish with the SDK additions and changes that we've been providing in our LightWave [8] updates, including that he's now taken advantage of some of the 22 SDK enhancements in 8.2. As has already been said many times before, we'll most certainly be implementing the changes that he and other developers would like as we continue with our development of LightWave. Our programming staff continues to get direct feedback from Steve and the folks at Worley Labs as we work on his requests, so he's fully aware that we're working on these steadily and that each update will provide more available options and power to FPrime and other third party tools.

Congratulations to Worley Labs on releasing FPrime 1.5!!

I'm convinced many here don't realize what's involved in programming, especially redesigning code. The easiest thing is to start over from scratch. I found that out early on in some of the applications I wrote. When you have a large customer base you can't afford to break the original code when updating, and that's not hard to do. So if you rewrote it entirely no doubt there'd be numerous plugins that wouldn't work. I can imagine the outcry then. It's a tough balancing act that Newtek is doing, and doing it well I might add.

New to Lightwave. Need some advice? Need pro's and con's of getting Messiah Studio Workstation and/or FPrime 1.5? Are they worth it and why? Thanks! :confused:

I have feeling by the time we see FPrime 2.0 it will be a fee-based update. Of which I'm not ready for. Let's enjoy what we've got now and continue to save up our chump change. ;)

Don't knock it.
It once took me four hours to teach one of my clients how to "Copy and Paste" :)

I can imagine....

I've red a strory where some idiot called microsoft hot line, saying that on his screen there is a big mess, big squares everywhere....

hot line said : ok, don't panic, begin by closing all the windows you have opened...

In the background on the phone, the guy from the hot line could hear someone closing real windows... !! he he... :D :D
