Hello everyone! I noticed there isn’t a discord server for mGear development. I am a rigging artist and have been using mGear for the past year now. What I need, as a rigger, is the ability to create custom shifter components to suit my needs. However I am unable to find proper documentation on how mGear’s classes work under the hood, what calls are being made and functions inherited. I figured it would be pretty easy to have a place to post information so we can better document making an mGear component from scratch.
If you would like to join I posted an invite link here.
That’s a great idea to be honest. Forums have been there for over 2 decades now and I feel like real-time chat like Discord is better in terms of seeking & sharing experience(s). It might not fit older generations (no offense), but it will certainly help new developers/riggers who just began learning. Also Discord channels are usually community driven so it’s fairly easy to organize one.
Would be nice to hear opinions from the Dev team about this!
Discord and other chat platforms are nice for casual chit-chat, sharing news, or if you looking for an immediate response, but the information gets quickly lost in time and is hard to find after some time.
Please check the previous thread about the topic for more arguments against the chat format
I know more documentation and tutorial are needed about that topic. But as always time is the main limitation.
Here is some information that maybe is useful to start (and a proof of the forum archive value )
But please feel free to use discord if you think it is useful for you
Thanks for reaching back out Miquel. I’m very new to mGear and it is a wonderful environment to use. I’d love to be able to do something as far as implementing some of my prototypes in there but I know this is starting to look like a daunting task.
