    Platinum Arts Sandbox at the ABLEconf Linux Conference and Test Release soon!

    Platinum Arts Sandbox is the game design tool based on the Cube 2 engine that allows users to quickly and easily create and edit their own worlds in game, even cooperatively. It is free, open source, and easy to use for Kids and Adults!

    Thanks to the great folks holding the ABLEconf in Arizona Platinum Arts Sandbox is going to be featured at their conference! For all of you Arizona residents this is going to be a great linux conference that shows off lots of the various cool software available for Ubuntu and other Unix based flavors. Be sure to check their webpage http://ABLEconf.com for details. Those of you not from Arizona don't fret! The Sandbox Presentation media and materials will be available after the conference.

    If everything goes according to plan we will be releasing a test version of the new Sandbox release this weekend! Thanks to our buddy offtools Moviecube has been added to Sandbox which allows users to create their own movies! It is still in development stage but a lot of cool things are already working. To see Moviecube in action check out http://www.youtube.com/user/offtools As with any offsite content it may not be appropriate for kids. Additionally we have a new map Mansion which will be a part of the release. For those of you who are craving more action, I'm am in the process of developing a demo for an RPG. The first version will be kid friendly and I may also work on a version that is not so kid friendly. If the second part happens it will be clearly labeled and separate from main Sandbox version. Anyone that is in interested in helping out should contact us at http://Kids.PlatinumArts.Net/Contact-Us Stay tuned, lots of exciting things to come!

    Take care and thanks everyone who has been enjoying the Sandbox Basics Video, I can't believe the overwhelming response to it More to come soon!

    Sounds cool maybe we could use it to make la vida. Also do you need to know coding?

    For your coding question it of course depends what you want to do. There is quite a lot you can do without touching any code, but of course you can do a lot more with a small amount of coding. I've had some quite young kids do some really cool work with map scripts where they've had NPCs you could chat with and give quests. In addition they had multiple conversation options written in for the npcs! That is quite cool in my opinion and they were around 14 years old and younger! Hopefully I answered your question, I guess I got a little carried away Take care and good luck on your project.

    Try updating your video card drivers. Sounds like you have some old and/or buggy ones. Let us know how that works out. Take care.
