November 2021 - News - s&box

I watch some woodworking channels on YouTube. And you know,  most of them don't really do much woodwork. They spend 99% of their time making things to store their tools in, or systems to make moving their machinery about, or to make cleaning up easier. The hobby feeds the hobby.

qt was already used in source 2 and vs2022 isn’t a dependency you are free to use vscode or rider

More VR is good in my book, that means we get more stuff sooner rather than later

Really neat stuff, however I don’t like how disgusting they made the viewmodel. It seems like today if you want something to be realistic, you just cover it in dirt and shit and you’re done.

I love the dedication to tools but I feel like it’s not the deciding factor for s&boxs success, We Thrived Gmod with potato’s… At some point you start wishing we just had some official S&box games to just enjoy. A Developer Markplaces can help the community to start churning out the ecosystem of games and not be stuck with this mess that offers high quality tools.

Like the Big G points out the flaw in Woodworking Channels then replicates the same thing. When are we going to see some nice woodwork that s&box is capable of? Just saying, would love some inspiration. :doughnut:

Also, unlike the woodworking channels, the tools Big G is making will be useable by everyone in the end.
