[Bf-gamedev] HTML 5 exporter from BGE

Z-brush = Blender UI, not GameDev,

With the blender UI you can indeed publish game assets, however,
The BGE exists, and people are working hard to make it better,

With LOD, occlusion culling, and a little modernization, the BGE is the
same animal as the pay engines,

I would love to develop using unityPro, or Cryengine, however they are not
blender..... I try to use those tools and they seem weak by comparison.

I LOVE SCA logic, I am falling in love with python....

I have found no tool even near as fast, or complete at creating amazing
gameplay mechanics,

and as far as "Visual limits"......

If I have a great LOD set up, and things are slowing down, then adjust the
draw distance / detail  level.

With the  trunking of kupomans LOD, it will  allow  for easy coding of GFX
detail level selection, Multithreading the render and physics, and
dependency graph, would mean that the BGE is not far from the other engines
at all.

I also want blender to have every tool you  need, but Z-brush is not a
gameDEV  feature, it's a modeling tool. (not that I don't want it because I

I think that we all have our own goals,
publishing games running the bge is mine.

If we can export to JS or C, then in fact the BGE will be just as fast as
cryengine? (*I am really asking*)
