Author Posts April 14, 2006 at 9:01 pm #5241 Anonymous Hi there, If you are a student and would like to make some money coding for an open-source project ( eg http://www.blender.org, the open-source 3D modeller, with a built in Games Engine! ), check out… http://google-code-updates.blogspot.com/2006/04/summer-of-code-2006.html Last year, about 7 students got to code a SOC project for Blender, so it would be a good choice of project. Here are a few that you might want to do, to keep with both games and Blender… – Re-instate the Web 3D plugin ( this hasn’t been working since the code went opensource, and parts were pulled out of it ) – Implement various fixes to the games engine ( including more enhanced Logic Brick actuators ) and to Blender for the GE ( including WYSIWYG in Blender, it has slightly went out of synch ) – Implement some higher level AI functionality for the GE. That’s just a few that I can think of at the mo ;) Mal May 2, 2006 at 8:11 pm #31291 Anonymous Quick update… you have until the 8th to submit something, if you want to code on the openSource 3D Blender project. http://www.blender.org/cms/Newsitem.620+M51bf7d081c8.0.html If you want to hone your coding skills over the summer, get some dollars, and also get something to put on your CV, this would be a great opportunity. Don’t forget that Blender has a game engine, so get on to the forums and ask what people would want added to the engine.
