I was on this site in 09 and 10 and was making progress learning Panda3d, when my life took a whirlwind rollercoaster 9 year detour… But now I have time again to try my hand at game making.
I am happy to see this software still being used with an active community. Unfortunately for me though I will have to start over as I dont remember anything and I have lost all my old files and assets. Hopefully as I try and work with the engine my memory will come back.
We will see if I can finally finish something,
Here were my biggest challenges:
I have never been able to use blender. Whenever I try to it just does not act the same as it does in tutorials. For the past nine years I built furniture and ran children’s homes and worked as a pastor. SO I used 3d modeling everyday through sketchup and viacad. So that will be a challenge for me to find a scene editor I can use. Unless blender is easier to use now.
The biggest challenge is I fall into tutorial purgatory and I lose focus and the project dies.
Anyway thanks to this community for keeping panda3d going.
