Fixing Godot games published in Google Play

After games being published using Godot on Google Play for almost 8 years with no problems, Google decided they don't like the format we use for exporting any more and is suspending many published games. Here's how to fix your APK to upload it again.

Godot's documentation is now open for translation

Godot has been around for over 4 years, and localized documentation in Spanish, Portuguese, Chinese, French, Russian and many other languages has always been a very requested feature. After a lot of documentation work to ensure that we have a good original English content to translate from, and some more work on setting up a convenient infrastructure for translating and keeping translations up to date, we are now ready to welcome contributions!

Sketchfab integrates with Godot

Sketchfab is a well-known site where you can browse a big library of 3D models and download them for use in your own projects. Many of them are free, covered by open licenses. They have just announced their download API, which allows third-parties to integrate with it, giving any application access to hundreds of thousands of models in glTF, a standard format that many tools, Godot included, understand. They have integrations for other famous game engines, like Unity and Unreal and have decided to provide an official plugin for Godot!

Moving to Vulkan (and ES 2.0) instead of OpenGL ES 3.0

The rationale for the OpenGL ES 3 renderer was having a single codebase for targeting all platforms. This sounds really good in theory and we could say it *almost* works, but...

Next Patreon goal: Help us hire Rémi Verschelde (Akien) full time!

So far we have been a few months on Patreon and the net result has been overwhelmingly positive, as we get enough funds each month to hire our lead developer and an intern! Still, it's time to start thinking about our next hire to continue speeding up Godot's development as well as its visibility and relevance in the gamedev industry.

Let people touch Godot!

Maybe you have already seen an AdPod around. They are three-sided giant multitouch capable screens. The company behind them customizes them for very important customers for promotion campaings for things like movies (Disney, Universal). They "skin" the device cosmetically for the targeted product and develop interactive apps that run on them. People walking by can interact with them, something which creates great product awareness and also entertains. Now they have decided to use Godot for such development work! The switch from the well-known non-free engine they were using formerly has been a wise decision.

Shedding light on Godot's development process

Godot keeps growing steadily in both users and contributors, and 3.0 will be our best release yet. As our community keeps expanding, the development process also reshapes to accommodate new contributions. While our process is completely transparent, it is not obvious for a large part of the community how new features, fixes and improvements are added. This short article will attempt to shed some light on it.

Please help us reach our second Patreon goal so we can hire karroffel part-time!

Our campaign for the initial Patreon goal (hiring Juan full time) has been a huge success thanks to our community's support. Thanks to this, Juan is able to spend a lot more time working on Godot and helping other contributors. However, many areas remain where more dedicated developer time would be highly beneficial to advance the project faster.

As an Open Source project, Godot is more than a game engine

Godot is a community developed game engine. The development process is becoming tighter and more efficient every day. As the amount of contributors keep growing exponentially, it's a big challenge for us to keep this process efficient and yet improve it.

Patreon: First goal achieved!

A little bit over a month ago we launched a Patreon campaign to improve our funding. The first goal, which is allowing our lead developer Juan Linietsky to work full time on the project, has been just met, which is amazing!! Thanks to everyone who helped and contributed!

We need your help to improve our documentation system!

Godot has grown a lot and, nowadays, and new users expect us to have quality documentation comparable to commercial offerings. For this, the documentation system we currently have needs tweaks and improvements. As we, game engine developers, are not experienced in the web side of the programming world, everything seems daunting to us (please don't laugh), so any help with the following items would be hugely appreciated!

80% funded! Celebrating with a Patreon rewards upgrade

The first two weeks of our new Patreon campaign have been astounding, with more than $2,400/month pledged by the community to enable us to hire Juan full-time to work on Godot's development. We are 80% of the way up to that goal, and with your help to spread the news we might be able to reach our target $3,000 within a few days! To celebrate this huge progress, we upgraded our Patreon rewards to make them more accessible. We also took this opportunity to satisfy some legal requirements of being a non-profit charity, ensuring that no reward could be interpreted as a taxable business income.

A small defense of glTF 2.0 on its comparison against OpenGEX

This is a short article clarifying some on my views of why I believe glTF to be a great asset pipeline format, contrarily to the claims of Eric Lengyel's feature comparison of OpenGEX and glTF.

Why we should all support glTF 2.0 as THE standard asset exchange format for game engines

Khronos, with glTF 2.0, has given us a fantastic open standard for asset exchange format between 3D modelling software and game engines. Here's why we must make it succeed...
