Free for all

Hi Everyone,

L3DT is going freeware again, as of next year. I’d like to sincerely thank everyone who supported me over the years by purchasing a license for L3DT Professional. The revenue from Bundysoft certainly helped me through some lean times, and will pay for the webhosting bill for Bundysoft for quite some years to come.

L3DT will continue to be hosted on Bundysoft indefinitely, and updates and bug fixes will continue to be released sporadically. The only real change will be that there will be only one version of L3DT, and it will be free for all to use.

I haven’t yet completed debugging of this new version of L3DT, and I also still have to rebuild some parts of the website, update EULAs, etc. This work is likely to take me some time into the new year, owing to a number of other commitments I have from Dec - Feb. In the mean-time, I have changed the L3DT Professional trial registration page to generate free licenses valid for 6 months, which should be enough time for me to get my act together.

If you have any questions or comments about this change, please feel free to post a comment in this forum thread.

Best regards,
Aaron.

Aaron,

I have a question about something that may be affected by this change. I noticed in the To-Do list was a listing for getting multithreading support to other calculations. What particularly interests me is erosion.

I still rely very much on L3DT, and will for probably quite some time. I'm actually working on a new project that requires a particularly large map and right now heightmap calculations take about a week and a half, mostly owing to erosion. I understand your desire to move things to a free model and thus less dev focus will probably go to the program, but is there any way you could be convinced to put a bit of focus into getting multithreading at least to erosion before things go too far into the backburner? I would hugely appreciate it, as this project will require many iterations before things are complete and the difference could be from a grand total of several months down to a few weeks.

Thank you.

Sounds good and I believe I can convey big thanks from the Arma terraining community for this change. L3DT is the go-to terrain sculpting tool.
