Silo 2.3 64-Bit when for Windows?

Hello Nevercenter Team,

It is great to see the 2.3 release including 64-Bit versions of Mac OS and Linux, as I am a Windows only user I wonder when we can expect the 64-Bit version as most of my models die on the memory limit wall to be finished in Silo,

Regards,
McHannemann

I've got this on my list. The Mac OS X version and Linux version are both now 64-bit only, so it's just a matter of taking the time to work through the build issues on the windows side. No promises on a date, but hopefully pretty soon here.

That sounds good, thank you

Yeah, it always "sounds good" but its always very little very late.

Heh, you are so very encouraging. I'm working on it.

Everyone give mike a break. He is engaging the community and has already made progress with silo. Lets be more positive around here!

Yeah, good old InfoCentral… It's for many years always the same with him on lot's of 3D related forums.

Yeah, and I see they are practically giving away Shade as well. I guess if anyone used any common sense they would be using Blender now which is FREE!

And what if you don't like Blender? I wish Blender had a better interface, because it would be a great free app to use. But Silo is easier for modeling and I don't have to think too much about making a model.

I think that Silo should be cheaper, but they do have sales every so often. If you like Blender better than use it instead. I think most Silo users have tried Blender before and that is why they still use Silo to make 3D models.

Great, I think I would invest in something that is actively being developed like Modo or 3D Coat but to each his own. OTOH, if you want a Silo seat then that can be had for $20.

Modo, perhaps, could be called an investment. Silo? I spent more in the pub last night.

I could be wrong, but it does appear that there is some active development going on too.

It certainly appears that way but you know the saying, appearances can be deceitful. Didn't the person doing the developing said from the start that he was just helping out and not to expect too much?

The 64 bit version itself will at least be a considerable improvement.
