2.5 Released!

Awesome to see Silo getting some of the love it deserves!
Keep it up!

Maybe I missed something but, I don't see a download for Linux - Is the Linux release lagging behind?
Will there be a Linux version?

Indeed! Glad to see the little modeler that could back in action.
Is there a way to keep the Numerical Editor values (rotation and scaling) constant instead of zeroing them after an action?

Hiya!

Yup. I just re-purchased (have the Steam version...figured I'd support Nevercenter directly this time). First impressions....Sweet update guys!

Now, if they could just implement AMD ProRender and nVidia IRay for nice, AO'ed "grey-clay" shots that'd rock!

From the the release notes:

Many error messages moved to pop-ups to make it more apparent when something goes wrong.

Please put it back how it was. This somewhat interferes with the Zen :]

Or, at least make it an option that can be turned off.

It would be great to have it possible to set up the Scene Editor with Layers instead of one big object list. Being able to group objects is nice but I love how Max allows me to group objects in layers and be able to turn off visibility, contract or expand it when needed. The contract/expand option is wonderful when you have a scene with a great many objects. I worked in the cad world for a long time and layers were essential to maintain organization of drawings and drawing objects.

One scene I have been working on has well over 140 objects. Scrolling through that many objects can really break continuity and it is easy to miss the one object you need. It would really speed up my progress if I could create layers for it to be able to access things easier. Groups, while useful, does not allow me to see what objects are part of it.

Silo for Linux is still available, but is not actively being developed.

Unfortunately, the demand for Silo on Linux systems was simply too low (about 1.5% of Silo installs) to make continued Linux development feasible. So in order to continue Silo development, we've had to take Linux out of active development (and also discontinue support for 32-bit Windows systems). However, Silo 2.3 for Linux is, and will continue to be, available on the Silo Downloads page at http://nevercenter.com/silo/download_file/#otherdls

Our apologies everyone affected by this!

We've had a bunch of reports that the popups are distracting--thanks for the feedback! We're looking into adding a preference to change this.

Thanks for letting me know. It's a bit sad but, understandable. I can live with it if the focus on 2 platforms leads to more frequent updates and improved features. I'm encouraged that under the hood work is being done. Feels like the foundation for something greater is being built!

Will there be any chance of including the option for plugins?

I had to revert to 2.3
2.5.1 gave me a white screen.
I sent them an email about it though.

You didn't learn anything did you ? How about you don't look into it but admit it was bad idea and remove it. Kill your ego and stop being drama queens. Shit, I'm too old for this 'power games'.

We just set a new update live that should fix this white screen issue--you can get it at http://nevercenter.com/silo/download_file

Love to hear how it works for you!
