New video that's crazier than anything else I've posted.

Note the bases can be removed entirely, and you can walk around normally. In some of the videos, that's how they show it.

Weather Control - sneak peek
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jMmSzuL2wW4

The rain, snow, and time of day are cool, but what really blew me away is the wind. Watch how the trees bend, dust is kicked up, leaves flying everywhere. You don't get this stuff even in most traditional videogames, only in a handful of huge-budget games.

Note also no bases anywhere, just smoothly animated normal videogame models.

The KS is doing good, but...

If you use the function, you can even talk as the character and your players will hear the sound with it's location, thanks to spatialized sound.


They're saying all the right things. GMed Cyberpunk 2077 isn't far away. And the market is responding well so far, as they've reached €156k now. That said, the TaleSpire KS reached €350k, so they have a ways to go to catch up. They still have 17 days though, and the word is getting out. They might well get there.

Three new trailers are out, and they're incredible. The level of fidelity is easily near the level of LiF, Atlas, and Rust, and it will surely rise with cutting-edge assets. It's Unreal 5 after all.

Watching these videos makes me miss Pathfinder terribly. We'll get back on that horse soon, guys, and with a ton of new bells and whistles.

Menyr Lets You Build A Whole Damn World For Your RPG Campaigns
https://kotaku.com/ttrpg-rpg-d-d-dungeo ... 1849555946

Kotaku linked Menyr and their KS jumped to nearly a quarter of a million. They never mentioned TaleSpire because it's isometric, not really animated, etc.

Guild Artillerist | Beneos Animated D&D Tokens

New model by Beneos. Check out how high-quality it is. I think it is comparable to what's seen in Baldur's Gate III. That's the kind of quality we can expect to see in Menyr. Whole armies of them, and moving in real-time, at least during exploration phase.

If some AI can be added to the program, it could have massive ramifications for real-time tactics as well. So far I have been talking about a revolution in TURN-BASED tactics with TaleSpire, but Menyr has the potential to upend real-time tactics as well.

Which reminds me of Robomoo by the way lol. He is working on a Tiny Metal clone right now, and I told him that he doesn't even know the good tactics games, so how can he expect to make a good one? Because Tiny Metal isn't good. It sure looks good, but it isn't good. The best tactics game is... Pathfinder. So if he wanted to make a good one, he'd have to make a new RPG system. That's why I am not making a tactics game: we already have the best, and I can't make a better one, so there's no use trying. It's a waste of time. What I am doing instead is inserting the best tactics system into the best MMORPG and overworld system, which is my Ultimate Edition and Battlegrounds. And what Menyr can potentially bring to this table besides first-person and high-fidelity graphics is REAL-TIME play, specifically real-time exploration and, hopefully some day with some AI added, real-time tactics.

Real-time action a la Cyberpunk 2077, on the other hand, is coming too, but probably not with Menyr.
