3DXChat Development Update 1


Gizmo

20,231 views

Hello everyone! We wanted to update you on the latest developments of our game. We have started a blog to keep you informed and hope you enjoy it.

In November 2022, we did a comprehensive survey with NoirDesire to gather feedback on the game's quality. While we are still processing the results, NoirDesire kindly shared some interim feedback. We have gained insight into players' thoughts on crucial aspects, such as game bugs and features they would like added.

Most players, like us, desire a more stable game. We will make this our top priority.

To accomplish this, we are currently porting the game to a newer version of the Unity engine. The new engine will allow us to benefit from the many improvements and refinements that Unity developers have made over the past few years. Since the game is currently using an outdated 2018 version of the engine, we have decided to update this platform first.

While porting the game to the new engine, some systems have broken. We have been able to fix nearly all of them and even enhance some. For instance, the beer-drinking system was broken; we have entirely revamped it and added new types of drinks and food. As you drink, you will notice the liquid level in the bottle decreases, and bits of food vanish from your plate. Additionally, we have added the ability to toss the bottle out of the character's hand.

We have included pictures/videos of the drink and food system for you.

We plan to conduct a beta test of the new client once we have migrated to the new Unity engine.

Stay tuned for more updates on the progress of 3DXChat development!

I agree. We don't need a list saying who's in the room. I already have to deal with stalkers sometimes that somehow can track alts attached to your account. I can't even go to an alt without same people bothering me sometimes. I don't need people checking rooms for me too.

I am really tired of people not accepting the inquires of others. I suggest you read the following and then answer the question why there should be a reason why long term players should not look with very skeptical eyes on what is announced, where are these features? They are not in sight:

Dear @Gizmo!

Just few example of requests:

- Accessories that can be switched on/off (e.g.: wings, headphones)

- During foreplay and BJ, the system should not drop the clothes automatically, we can take off/put on the clothes

- No phone in the hand in the phone pose

- ONLY 3 necklance and we not get piercings at all

These are only small things, but they really spoil the atmosphere of the game, and the developers have not had a solution for them for years (rather, the will).

 

A favorite suggestion that has been requested for many years:

- partially/fully colorable baseball cap

This has not been solved for at least 5 years! It is so hard? It takes a lot of time? If you don't spend even a little time on such little things, what can the player expect from you? Do you see? This is the problem...

Another platform what collect ideas? What about that tons of request on discord or on this forum in another topics??? Open up your eyes guys, and DO IT!

Maybe English isn't your native language? The blog doesn't say the new food and drink feature was anything to do with the surveys. Read it again.

Thanks Gizmo for these "future updates", but what I really want to say is: Are we working on a pose editor? A clothes editor? 
Fake 3DX games have much more clothes, nose piercings, eyebrow piercings, nose piercings, different clothes than ours.

Suggestions
- Explain that the devs working on the new animations and ice cream cones (artists) are not the same ones doing bugs and features (coders). Who is doing what?
 

Sometimes things come ready-made from the Unity store. I'm only guessing in this case, but we once got a saloon which we all thought they worked day and night on and built themselves and were giving them glowing praise for the wonderful design and how well it was made, but someone posted a link to it on the Unity Store and it wasn't expensive either, from memory it was between $20-50 total.  Point is they can often just buy something ready-made and tweak it a bit, including props, poses and animations, so it's not like they have someone making everything from scratch every single time and therefore it doesn't necessarily conflict with time spent on fixing bugs to the extent you're thinking.

Nice to see the glasses, about time we moved away from the single green ubiquitous bottle. The scotch, wine and so on glasses will allow people to have more of a personality when they're out and about, it will tell others something about them just by looking at what they're choosing to drink. The food, meh, but some people will love it I'm sure.

Give the guys a soft cock option and chest hair please. Asked for years ago and ever since by many many guys.

Piercings - nipples, eyebrow, ears (several places), lips, nose. I know if you add those people will still not be satisfied and will want genital ones as well which might not work with animations, but we have NONE and we asked for these years ago. Let's get them in the game and make everyone happy.

Good news about the upgraded Unity engine, that's been a long time coming, grats.

Keep your drinks and food and let me color my hats first! It's ridiculous that something so simple as being able to color everything is not being added. How many years do I have to wait to wear a fucking black hat or pink hat if I want to? Who are you fooling with these surveys? I am willing to bet nobody asked for this food and drinks as the priority in this game when there aren't even enough clothes to make a unique look. How about the ability to layer clothes on top of each other? or adding the material system to all the existing clothes? Even the rip off's have better customization than the original game.

I think you are aware of the long ago pose editor survey and that there was a new clothing system, with for instance adjustable length of pants, which was never mentioned again. If needed I can provide links or screens, it was here in the 3DXChat forum.

I will not comment on the pose editor at this time. The time has not yet come.

I understand what you mean by "there was a new clothing system, with for instance adjustable length of pants". Our research on this system has been put on hold due to higher priorities. We may revisit the idea later. But there is no development in that direction at the moment.

  1. When do you expect the migration to the newer version of the unity engine to be finished?
  2. What are the main feature people asked for and which of them do you plan to implement and when?
  3. Did the users really asked for drinks and food consumption, the feature you propagate in this blog entry? Can you please publish the resulst of the survey? Of course some whishes are dreams and you cannot fullfill them but anyway it would be very interesting to see them.
  4. Which have been the most reported bugs and which ones will be fixed? It does not really help with the existing, at times really annoying bugs, when bugs caused by the migration to the newer unity version are reported to be fixed. What is with the bugs reported for the current system, please?
  5. Why is the development not forked regarding to continue to upgrade all clothes to the new material system? Female avatars still stay without any customizable panties.

Thank you for your questions. I am happy to answer them.

  1. The migration to the new version of the Unity engine is almost complete. As I said, some systems were broken due to incompatibilities, and we had to fix everything. The beer-drinking system was utterly broken, and we could either remove it from the game entirely or rebuild it from scratch. We chose the latter and rebuilt the system from scratch, improving and expanding it considerably. It is much closer to our original idea of a food and drink system in the game.
  2. The top 3 features that players are asking for are "Additional Sex Poses", "Avatar setting improvements", "Additional Clothes". We plan to add all of these as we develop.
  3. We will happily share the survey results with the community as soon as all the results have been finalized. NoirDesire, as the organizer of this independent survey, is kindly helping us to process the results. We appreciate and thank her for her help. So let's be patient and respect her work and time. As soon as the results are ready, we will publish them.
    Our initiative was to set up a food and drink consumption system. As the authors and owners of the 3DXChat project, we wanted to add such mechanics to the game. We hope this new mechanic will be to the liking of most players. I would like to mention the players' idea to have the deducted funds from buying food and drinks go to the host room account. It's an exciting idea, and we'll probably revisit it.
  4. The top 3 bugs are "Sync Bug", "Naked/Bald Avatar", "Disconnections"
    Also, about 90% of the bugs are related to the networking part of the codebase. We have a lot of work to do on refactoring and improving the network part. This will allow us to get rid of 90% of the bugs.
  5. We are planning to switch all clothes to the new material system. It will take some time to do this.
    Why did we decide to move to a new version of the Unity engine first? First of all, the current 2018 version of the engine is already outdated. Secondly, we want to develop the game using all the new engine's features. Finally, Unity has fixed many bugs and optimized the engine. Players will be able to use a more stable client while we work on the network bugs.
    The transition to the new Unity is a necessary step and an essential preparation for the next significant bug-fixing effort.

  1. Announce that the custom pose editor is never going to happen because it is beyond the team's abilities. Too complex.
  2. Make a public roadmap of plans? Players would know what to expect and when.
  1. You are correct that it is a challenging task. But I will not comment on the Pose Editor in any way.
  2. Roadmap is something different from what we would like to use. We will now write about development and our plans on this blog.

Since you are already making the new feature and adding more foods/drinks to the game, may I ask will we have a hunger/ thristy/ drunk bar in future? I can't imagine more use of these consumable objects other than rp, and it probably will be like beer: It's a cool feature, but people hardly buy them because they doesn't do any effects

It's also worth mentioning that these fake 3DX games are illegal and have terrible-quality content.

About the Pose Editor, I answered above. Regarding the clothing editor (character editor) - we are gradually transitioning clothes to the new material system. And over time, all clothing will support materials.

Hello
Glad new items are added, but I would like to place an order
4 years behind when I opened my room Studio 54, I was criticized and a lot of people told me that I was crazy because I was doing music for old, right in my humble opinion music no time especially disco music, today I see that many people open discos and play disco music That's why it would be very interesting to make some clothes from the 70/80's time and also create a realistic Disco Ball that would project the circular movements of a Disco Ball on the  dance floor

 I think it's not hard to do. Thank you and I hope this can be done

Okay? So how does this relate to me? The quote you tag me in I only said I agree there should be no "Who's in Room" Option? That lets people look at rooms and see a list of people in those rooms before even going in the room. This opens the door to stalkers even wider. Make inquiries and suggestions all you like, and these ones in the posts seem like decent ones, but my post was replying to someone who said a "Who's in Room" feature would be bad, and I agreed.

Unless you meant to tag a previous post I made? In which case again I'm not ignoring anyone's inquiries, just stating an obvious fact that was posted in the literal first message regarding it. You want me to take you seriously, but then you don't read my post to see where I was even coming from. lol

1))  You only listen to a handful of players and ignore what everyone else wants.  This is wrong of you to do.  Neither NoirDesire, nor anyone else in your inner circle of buddies, speaks for all of us.  You always give them what they want but make it obvious you don't care what the remaining 99% of us want.  And don't reply back with nonsense about polling players to find out what we want.  The polls are only there to deceive the general player base into believing you really care what we want.


2))  Fix the Ignore feature.  It has been broken since it was first added to the game.  The visible list on our profiles only shows a set number of names.  Once you exceed that number, the Ignore feature breaks and only some on the list are still ignored, while many on the list are un-ignored (even tho their name is still seen on the list).  They can see you and you can see them.  They can message you and you can message them.  They can invite you and you can invite them.  They can see and enter your room, you can see and enter their room.  You have known for years that it is broken because the fact has been reported to you countless times over the years.


3))  Fix the Search feature of the Friends and Ignore lists.  This has been asked for countless times over the years.


4))  The Favorite Rooms feature is a good feature but we still have to scroll thru 100+ rooms to find new rooms, so we can go to those rooms to see if we will like them or not.  We want the ability to remove rooms from the Shared User Worlds list.  There is absolutely no reason we should be forced to see, and have to scroll thru, lots of rooms we have absolutely no interest in, or should not be in.  We cannot remove rooms by adding the alts which opened the rooms to our Ignore list because  >>>  refer back to number 2 above  >>>  and also because many players open rooms and then hide the alts so they cannot be ignored by others who want to remove their rooms from the list.


5))  REMOVE the "Strap-On" options from the screen of female gender alts and add them to the clothing editor, so they can be added and removed just as the clothing items can be added and removed.  Some of us women do not ever want to wear a strap-on or penis for any reason.  Those options should not be constantly on our screens as if you are trying to encourage us to use them.  This has been asked for numerous times over the years.


6))  Fix the color palette in the clothing and build editors.  We look online for a color, shade, tone, or hue we want to use, copy the RGB or Hexidecimal for it, add it to the color palette in the clothing or build editor, and it almost always gives the wrong color, shade, tone, or hue.  Try it yourselves and you will see it almost always comes out wrong.


7))  Enforce standards on publicly opened rooms.  Many rooms look good at first glance but it quickly becomes obvious they are very poorly built. This is because the builder has thrown many things in place without any regard for whether or not it is placed correctly, in their crazed rush to hurriedly open (or put up for download, or sell) yet another room.  We often lay inches above or stuck down into beds, suspended half off beds, sit inches above or stuck down into couches and chairs, leans inches off of walls, etc.  This is true even in rooms made by many of the self-proclaimed "Pro Builders".


8))  You ruined the "Gift Xgold" feature by trying to force players to buy xgold instead of allowing players to gift from the xgold they've earned by log ins.  I know you want to make real world money but no one is buying xgold to gift to others.  Either change it so players can gift from the xgold they earn by logging in or remove the feature from the game as it is a useless feature as you now have it.


9))  Give us the ability to turn off seeing wings, tails, horns, animal ears, headphones, etc on other players.  This has been asked for many times by players.  3DXChat looks more like a circus freak show instead of a virtual sex venue.

Very nice there are finally some more updates than before, but it is still the case that Gizmo (and possibly other developers) do not care at all about the wishes that we as players have and just doing what they like without listening to us, and that has been always the case.

Good afternoon,

please give a detailed answer to the announcement for the builders. What can the new unity engine provide us ?

 

Also, with all my respect for the work and progress made, as an employee of a research company in the game industry, it's frustrating that you show the finished things first, although the research result is not yet available.

How much arrogance in one person. The things you say are true, it is correct, but you are too arrogant and rude in doing so, 
the fact that you are right does not give you permission to make your post a symbol of "knowledge and arrogance", 
I repeat, what you say it's true, it's the way you carry it that's wrong. Be kinder to others, it costs you nothing, it's free.

This is not the place for you to attempt to selfishly take over the thread to further your petty need to cause drama.

I don't think there are many people here who can carry a sort of kindness anymore. Honestly everywhere I go in 3DX anymore be it forums or in-game all I can see are self-entitled people who can't just be happy with some progress. But nah, the update wasn't to *their* standards. So it matters not to them.

I have already told you that I agree with what you wrote, it is the way you carry pedantic that makes you rude. 
Here we are all on the same level and we all have freedom of speech. Be more polite, it costs nothing. 
It's not a drama, just an observation. Arrogance gets you nowhere honey <3

Being passive-aggressive is the same as arrogance. Just saying.
