Just one question for Tim (if someone at Epic can pass it on).
As it looks like the only channel Epic use is the Twittersphere:
When is SCRIPTING coming to the engine?
Epic, isn’t it time to reveal something big… The last few of these end-of-year things have been too much of a self-congratulatory pat-on-the-back B-movie, that’s missing some serious bling. :D So its time for the money shot. :p The possibility of scripting in UE has to be the biggest open secret on here. So why leave it for GDC or until the end of 2021 or even longer. Let users start planning now! The infamous Sweeney reddit thread about scripting, was tantalizing because of the possibilities it raised, along with the related acquisition of SkookumScript. So there has to be something cooking.
If not, then why not offer [USER=“434”]BrUnO XaVIeR[/USER] a 6 or 7-figure grant and let him get serious about solving this?
Epic still act like we should all be using Visual Studio and C++. But not everyone wants or needs to mod the engine. Offering source via C++ is freedom for some for sure. But for others C++ formality / strictness is anything but, its more like imprisonment / incarceration. :mad: Why? Exactly for the reason the reddit thread alludes to… The captive possibility of ‘building bigger worlds and simulations. This is where things become very interesting, and the possibilities are less explored’. That’s an acknowledgment right there, that C++ is not the language that’s going to get us to the metaverse!!!
