3DXChat 3.0 Beta - Development Update 2

Hello everyone!

After months of hard work, we're thrilled to share the latest updates on our game with you in this blog post.
The most exciting news is that we've launched a beta server for testing the 3DXChat 3.0 Beta before implementing any changes to the main version. If you can't wait to try out the updated client, you can access it now by 
following this link: Join 3DXChat 3.0 Beta.

Let's dive into the details:

Improved Stability

We've prioritized enhancing the game's stability based on player feedback. To achieve this, we've taken a two-stage approach:

  • Stage 1 - Upgraded the game engine to Unity 2021 latest version.
  • Stage 2 - Addressed bugs in the game code.

Game Engine Update

3DXChat has successfully completed the first stage of porting the game to the new Unity 2021 engine, replacing the old 2018 version, and we are currently in the second stage of fixing bugs. This update grants us access to a wealth of technical improvements implemented by the engine development team. You can find a more comprehensive list of changes on the official Unity website.

It's important to note that most of the significant changes have been made behind the scenes and may not be immediately visible to players. Nevertheless, we believe it's crucial to deliver the game using the latest technology. We chose Unity 2021 as it's the version recommended by Unity itself for stability and suitability in ongoing projects. The newer versions, such as Unity 2022 and above, are currently considered unstable and recommended for research purposes only.

With the new engine in place, we'll be able to utilize all the features it offers. This upgrade brings numerous bug fixes and engine optimizations, resulting in a more stable client for players to enjoy while we continue addressing remaining issues.

Our upcoming plans involve further improving stability by continuing the bug fixing phase, alongside developing new content such as clothing and animations.

During the engine porting process, some systems encountered issues. However, we're happy to report that we've fixed them all, and in some cases, completely redesigned them. For instance, we revamped the beer drinking system, enhancing it by adding new types of drinks and food. As you consume these items, you'll notice the liquid level in the bottle dropping and bits of food disappearing from your plate. We've also introduced the ability to throw the bottle out of your character's hand, adding more realism to the experience.

But our efforts didn't stop at the engine upgrade. We've also included several new features and content for you to enjoy.

Open Your Own Shop

You now have the option to build your own store or place items anywhere in your location for other players to purchase. When items sell in your store, you'll receive 90% of the XGold earned. Grateful visitors can support your business by buying food and drink. Moreover, many of these items come with fun special effects. For example, vapes can emit colorful vapor, creating a smoke screen.

Share XGold Between Users

You can now gift XGold to other players or use it as payment for services. These features expand the game mechanics and offer fantastic role-playing opportunities.

Record Your Parties Like a Pro

We've added an optional camera mode for video recording (accessible via the F8 hotkey). This mode enables you to capture smooth, seamless fly-throughs or set the camera to behave like a quadcopter. Additionally, you can now control the default camera using the arrow keys on your keyboard.

New Content

We also have new in-game content for you, including:

  • Food and drinks objects for World Editor
  • Clothes (remastering old clothes + material system and brand new items)
  • Tattoos (6 new hand-drawn tattoos)
  • Sexual Positions (Not available in the beta client! Because they are in closed testing. You will get them in the release on the main server after the beta ends)

Dear @Gizmo,

it was long time from "almost finished" to now, but I admit after all criticism you have done it in a reasonable time: December to May is not that bad. Thank you for that. 👍

See you in times of more criticism but for now thank you for having the job done you promised.

Looks amazing, do wish with Xgold stuff we could get annual log in bonuses increased a bit too. @Gizmo Also not sure if this is possible talking about RP system functions if you could get some space marker or something in world editor where you could rent out room for time period with restricted access or something to people renting. For stuff like hotel or real estate type roleplay, but not sure how complicated it be to make possible with mechanics and Xgold system?

Sending XGold

This is a great feature to enable, but people might try to sell their XGold to other players for RL monetary transactions. It is against the Rules/ToS, but will you remind people of this or take extra steps to monitor those attempts?

@Gizmo

Nice to read another blog post and that the engine update is complete! I especially like the new clothes that work with the material system. This was something I was hoping for. Well done!

I don't want to bother you as I can imagine you are quite busy, but there is a question I have had for a long time and I would appreciate it if you could take the time to answer it:

Are there any plans for a feature that will prevent automatic undressing at the start of poses and actually allow people to decide what stays dressed and what doesn't in any type of animation? I think that is something a lot of people would make happy. Thank you for taking the time to read and have a great weekend!

When I downloaded the Beta version it DID NOT create a desktop Icon for me to click on and Open the game. So once I logged out I could not find a way to get back into the game. How do I create a desktop Login link?

Is anyone else having problems with a DJ feed?

I can play the standard radio channels and Radio Rivendell from the internet but not my own DJ radio even though it plays fine in 2.8. As this is a major feature of my game to play my original band music this is a game killer if it does not work

Pity the test is subscription only again, another reason not to renew it

What a nonsense comment to make, if it was free people would only use it to play there instead of the live server, not give feedback and help improve it for release.

So if you find it that bad to pay for a product, you can go elsewhere.

Great to see the progress you made. 👍 And I like the new clothing options a lot.

Concerning the shop options: I would find it useful to add a tiny toolbox saying what Item you are hovering about, instead of only showing the pricing. Eg: "salami" for pizza or "red wine", "Strawberry icecream", "Champaign" and so on. And I feel a terrible lack of Labellos (kidding).

More stable sounds great. And fixing bugs also. I just would like to know, which bugs you did address first place?

So far I did not see anyone walking into walls anymore at l least. Great!

I am only still very unhappy with physics though. My boobs still behave like green jelly, humping and bumping like not from this world. This was already way more natural some time ago. Perhaps you can kindly consider to give it a more natural look again?

Keep up the good work! 😍

Seems to be a problem streaming music from certain streams. Mixxx with shoutcast1 works fine in 2.9 but is not working in the beta 3.0. Any ideas? URL for stream is 198.7.59.28:8271

Heya @Gizmo will it be possible to divide the price of the items we can buy or increase the daily xgold reward please, because with 300gold per day i can buy only 3 or even 2 items maximum with current price. 😆

Works fine for me. I tried both Mixxx and my modified Media Monkey with Shoutcast and Icecast, without a single issue.

I think this will not become a big problem. See:

You can collect up to 300 XGold per day. This will be 300 x 365 XGold per year = 109,500 XGold. You can collect this per account and one account is, let's say, about 50 USD per year. So:

Ingame 109,500 XGold are 50 USD.

On the other hand:

Buying 100,000 XGold is about 90 USD.

So selling your own gold is somewhere between 50 and 90 USD, below 50 you have an own loss, over 90 there will be no buyer, it is cheaper to get it directly from 3DXChat. In the end, as seller, you can win around 40 USD per year and account, not that much. If you want to earn 400 USD per year you need to have 10 accounts first, 500 USD and then you need to login with each account every 24 h hours. Quite an effort if you cannot be sure anybody will buy the XGold.

(Please note my figures are reasonable rounded, not exact, to make the math a bit easier and better to understand.)

I love that all of my build still works fine, and that it runs smoother. Loved the cigars, but hate the way you smoke them, it looks like someone that never smoked in their life suddenly decided to try. Love the alternatives in beer and liquor, though i do not understand why we can`t smoke and drink at the same time, and the pricing on it all seems rather steep.

I really love the stompers, but 94 options to change them seem like overkill, and even though i absolutely adore them, i would trade all the new stuff in a second for one option to create sheer clothing.

I’m using listen2myradio with Centnova and shoutcast 1. What do you use?

One way could either be as you say increase amount or maybe add more stuff we can earn ingame Xgold on, maybe like doing daily tasks to attending events or something. Think would make sense to have ways to naturally earn Xgold from being active and online same way other places make use of similar mechanic then option to purchase Xgold if one want to do least amount of effort route maybe.

I am pretty sure the devs added the commission aspect so they can monitor all xgold transactions and will be able to see who is abusing it, and then take appropriate actions.

So let's just see how it works out before making assumptions that may or may not be accurate. 😉

Serious problem we can't smoke and drink at the same time :D

Same thing I was thinking! Not that I smoke in real life but isn't this game for things you don't or won't do in IRL. :D

Right click on the game .exe and select add to desktop, or you can start the game and R click the icon in your taskbar and paste it to the start menu or the taskbar.

If you really want it on the desktop, you can also drag a taskbar item to the desktop as well from the taskbar.
