Ok, a while back (in the beta forums) Jay3D posted some demos of NGD dynamics working in LW...Has there been any new developments? Is it going into Core, or might there be hope for it being developed for 9.x?

I may have missed where he may have posted new info...

Hey,

I believe he changed the name to Fasica, and had something up on his website
http://www.parology.com/

Though, he was teasing a bit in another forum a few months back about it. But I have heard nothing since.

there is nothing but a logo on that site...lol

Hopefully he'll read this and maybe post some news....it'd be cool to have a good dynamics system going while we wait for core to mature.

Hi :D

Well first I want to thank u guys for ur enthusiasm about the WIP dynamics engine, I appreciate that :) , and happy to be in the LW community now more than ever.

The project slowed down due to personal and family issues (relocate, having new babies ;) ), but it doesn't mean in anyway that I'm canceling the project, so be sure of that :thumbsup: , it's just a short period of stabilization, as well as digging more in the SDK and find more hidden possibilities and workaround for the most critical engine features like interactive dynamics. (dragging around a dynamics assigned body, and see it interacts with others without even pressing the play button in layout)

some reveals will come in the coming months ;)

Likely stories...babies should never get in the way of Lightwave goodness..hehe (but congrats).

Good to hear you're still on it....hopefully you can get somethin deliverable before Core...hehe.

Btw..I'll beta anything (as long as it's mac compatible) :)

I have seen new stuff from it...cool stuff, so the plugin is far from abandoned. Jay wants to reveal stuff himself when the time is right... I just post this to make sure everyone understands that it is not abandoned or put into a drawer, it gets tinkered on when time allows to do so.

Great news. I was really interested in it. Hopefully he'll have something to show soon?
