A heads up for Voxatron users -- the first version of the Lua api will be out next week in 0.3.5!

Pictured above is the result of drawing voxels directly into a room's map. The 0.3.5 api also provides access to actor attributes and state, spawning, camera control, and direct access to the display. The entire PICO-8 api is in there with some 3D counterparts (line3d, box, sphere), and it's possible to import a pico-8 cart into the resource tree, place it in a room, and run the cart on a single slice of the display. The .p8 cart shows up in the resource navigator, and is placeable in the room like this:

The code can also be edited to make slight adjustments for the 3d display:

In other news, I've updated the website with mobile-friendly cart listings and touch controls for the carts. It's still a work in progress -- the sound in particular is very choppy or missing altogether. But apart from that it is quite useable. If you have a modern phone or touch device please try it out!

WOW. Cartception!!

Now THIS looks kickass. What's the PICO-to-Vox-bundle upgrade, again? :D

EDIT: Never mind. Got it that other way. I just happen to have a spare PICO, now. Which is excellent!

Tried the mobile website on P.A.T. shooter and Chrome on Android (Nexus 5x) and it wasn't choppy at all, but there were some problems with the website wanting to zoom in when moving the d-pad and holding a button at the same time...

Look forward to new update :)

I have a question: I been having trouble merging rooms from one cart to another. It looks like object's IDs are getting mixed up. i was wondering if you have addressed this in new
update or if there is a specific way you need to do it to avoid
id conflicts.

Also is there is a way to capture an animated Gif of you Vox level.

Much appreciated.

Day 87
We've been lost in the woods for almost 3 months. We are running low on supplies. The locals are as helpful as they can be, but we can not survive on their charity alone. When we started this journey we assumed it would only take one week. But as the days grow in number, the nights grow colder and threaten to drain us of all hope that we will ever reach Lua API alive. If only there were some sign form the Creator (of Voxatron.)

@zep we know you're alive, you've been posting on the pico forum lately, can we get some disclosure?

This is very exciting!

I hope the exposed 3d display adjustments are not too 'slight' :D

Also quite clever that you can import pico-8 carts as it will be a great gateway into 3d

Just registered for Voxatron but little confuse. Ka.

This post says 0.3.5 should be out in a week and is over half a year old. Still the version to download is 0.3.4?

@zep, are I missing something?

P#41925 2017-06-25 07:14 ( Edited 2017-06-25 11:14)

@StefanHQ 0.3.4 is the latest version as of now.
We are waiting for 0.3.5 it has not yet been released.

About that Lua API....

It's a shame that it's taking so long because I believe there will be a creative explosion when the Lua API is released. Browsing through Voxatron's carts is quite a let down compared to the wonderful selection that Pico-8 has to offer. I've got a ton of ideas that I'm looking forward to try.

Voxatron should be put on Steam Early Access with VR compatibility to get more followers.
It is so unknown by the majority of gamers I fear it will remain obscure and die out.

Hi :3
Longest week ever.
