Fragments of the fractal -like the tip of it

UPDATE:

As for now, Jesse did not respond to anyone. That's very sad and we moderators don't know when (nor if) this will change. I am very sad about this, personally.

We can only wait - and hope flowers ... Please Jesse don't leave us alone

Not sure what his reason was to stop this, I respect his decision whatever the reason.
But if it was financial, maybe setting up a kickstarter would be an idea ?
I've only recently started using this (like last week) and would already be willing to pay for the program (or support the development of it)

Is this true? What are the reasons ?

I mean we do have Crowd funding these days ?
I'm sure people would pay for a premium version, I would !

The project started free and it would be very rude to make it commercial!
And as I said ... it's still under study - so I am not 100% sure if it will come to life
Don't ask further questions wink
Just be warned I will not be the programmer smiley

Hello all, I wanted to post about this later, but because now the questions arised:

I'm currently evaluating if I will continue the development of MB3D (to a certain point).
This is possible, because my own project (JWildfire) reached a stable state and I would not be unhappy to do something different.
Also, I like the MB3D-software a lot, even if I not had the time to play with it that much (yet).

Unfortunately, even the first addition I wanted to achieve, is very sophisticated to do,
so I'm still evaluating, if it makes sense or not (in terms of effort), but still I'm very positive.

More on this soon...

Nope, but it is important for me to chose the challenge(s) right, there is too many interesting stuff out there... When I stick to this project I can not do much other stuff (in spare time), so I have to evaluate it first, and this I'm doing now. Please just wait a little bit before judging  A Beer Cup

Cheers,

Still just sounds like "I don't have the coding chops this!" In all honesty. But then the original coder has thrown the towel in and will not release source.  So it will simply die.

I mean mandelbulber has full source so the hive mind can all contribute.  It's not about putting this one persons shoulders, that would be incredibly stupid. It's many people working together that make the difference. The fact that it's written in Delphi means more programmers can contribute, you don't have to be a c++ expert.

If he won't release the source it will simply die and every one will just use mandelbulber.

What other more interesting projects are there out there out if interest?

That's not honesty, that's anger.

You're not the only one who would like to see the project continued. We don't always get what we want. That's life.

Don't make it even harder for whoever picks up the code. It's probably difficult enough as it is, given how Mandelbulb3D evolved as its programmer was learning to generate 3d fractals, and learning to program at the same time. The source code might not be the pretty poetry that you know from books on the topic.

(No offense to Jesse intended. I know I wrote my share of pet projects that I would be too embarrassed to release.)
