      Godot 4 is supposed to be the first version of the engine that's actually viable for making proper games.

    I honestly can't believe they beat Unity to a bakeless realtime global illumination system (similar to UE5's Lumen).

      Unity has the most retardedly outdated and slow graphics imaginable so that's not exactly an achievement.

    why when unreal engine or even unity exists

    • 1 week ago

      Unity is a dumpster fire right now. They announced they were making their own game (Gigaya) only to cancel it three months later and instead invest in a monetization company known for creating a malware installer.

      Wat. Godot has great documentation. You can't even add a pull request that adds or changes features without also updating the documentation. It checks and flags your pull requests if you don't do documentation properly.

      4.0 has been pretty usable at least since a year ago.

    does godot 4 have anything like the UE5 Nanite? it seems like such a game changer for performance I have trouble thinking anything but the most simple 3d games would do better on anything other than UE5 at this point (assuming they actually use Nanite)

    Everyone saying
    >no one uses godot
    is a fucking retard who's either not old enough for this site or has really bad memory. Godot is a competent, multiplatform, unique and open source engine but it is relatively new. If an engine is this accessible and capable of being used for good games, it will be eventually. No one used Unity seriously for a long time, no one used Gamemaker seriously until like a decade after its release and godot is easier to jump into than either of these things. I understand not caring about it yet but doubting it is just stupid and shortsighted

      Godot has been at least as twice as popular as GameMaker since like 2 years ago by every metric, people thinking it's somehow not used are utterly delusional.

        GameMaker makes you pay a subscription fee just to export desktop binaries of your game, so I'm not surprised.

        This means very little. Gamemaker had thousands of "games" made in it that were just posted on the GMC forums back in the day. Quantity of games is meaningless. The thing people are talking about is relevant games. So for Gamemaker you have Undertale, Hotline Miami, Hyper Light Drifter, Spelunky, RoR, VA-11 Hall-A, etc. Some of the biggest indie games of the last decade are Gamemaker games. Godot has not seen this yet, but that's just a matter of time.

          Game Maker is clearly worse engine wise than Godot.... You just can't do console versions with Godot so of course Game Maker games will be more popular

    How long until someone makes an engine that takes a tiny amount of programming to use

    • 1 week ago
      Anonymous

      UE5 and unity both have extensive GUI based design formats, with code being mostly optional. I actually tried to learn UE like a year ago with pure focus on all-code C++ (as I am a programmer at my day job, so code doesn't scare me at all) and actually found the experience horrible, because even in unreal engine code-first rather than using the GUI is a second class citizen with less support

        So unreal is good for codelets?

        • 1 week ago
          Anonymous

          if code scares you, it will still be horrible and frustrating because unreal is an enterprise program and will not hold your hand at all. that is to say, unreal and unity are not hard because of programming, they are hard because they are enterprise applications with millions of options and tons of features and you wont know shit about how to do anything (even though there are 20 ways to do literally everything)

          also what

          Epic had plans to make an intermediate language that isn't as retarded as blueprints or their macro-ridden C++, they even hired the guys that worked on a plugin that did exactly that but I don't know what happened to it.
          UE's workflow is so off-putting, it's like a collection of entirely separate programs with different design philosophies glued together.

          said, all the different parts of UE kind of act like different programs you need to learn separately

              If you flop at the slightest resistance or prospect of learning something then you obviously won't be making a game no matter what you try using.

              you are ngmi in terms of games, maybe you could do that with music, art, or programming separately, but trying to make games which involves all of that and much more then no, you won't be able to finish any game like that

            if you want to use UE, the overwhelming consensus is that if you can use blueprints to do what you want to do, you should because code is a second class citizen with poor support and documentation

          I wish, it's not very beginner friendly. You have to look through their source code as their documentation is unreliable.

      They do measely 15k on patreon / month and have few sponsors which is peanuts. Honestly there is no way they can finance themselves. I bet its south american money laundering scheme disguised as a game engine.

        The patreon is a drop in the ocean compare to their corporate grants. Fun fact: The only reason why they bother supporting C# is because Microsoft specifically sponsors that with a full-time developer.

      The bulk of it comes from sponsors that use the engine for their own things or companies like Red Hat who have an interest in promoting FOSS.
