LL has blogged about mesh again, keeping us aware of their commitment to collada meshes in the near future (by the end of 2010 Philip said). It's an exciting development that is sure to have major repercussions. Unlike the addition of sculpties, there won't be such a huge downside to meshes so there will be a greater impact on the economy, however there may be a correspondingly huge but gradual positive impact on fps. Although I'm grateful for sculpties (couldn't've made my waffle arena without them!) they are frustrating at times to make and render slowly or badly for many people. I'm excited about being able to create directly to mesh.
- Will someone make something like Prim Oven that can take a linkset and turn it into a mesh?
- How much already-made mesh from places like 3D Warehouse will tumble into SL and clog up the works?
