Bforartists Version 0.2.2 is out. Grab it from the download section: http://www.bforartists.de/content/download
A full list of the changes can be found in the release note: http://www.bforartists.de/wiki/bforartistsreleasenotev022
This release is rather small. The main work for this version was to develop the Important Hotkeys addon, which is included into Bforartists now. The scripting layout is changed, including some tweaks at the menu. It has now a File menu like every standard text editor. And we have some more minor tweaks like readded hotkeys, a handful new menu items and some more removed double entries. Really not this much.
The addon is finished. I have done some more minor changes in the code, and have added a few more hotkeys. The old beta versions are deleted.
Have fun with it
It’s here: Other / Blender Addons
Important hotkeys is a Blender addon that displays some important hotkeys in the upper left corner. So that a new user doesn’t have to do a big research right after the first contact to find out the most basic navigation things.
The Blender version of the addon is a side effect of the current development of Bforartists. Here i need some hint text to show new users how to do basic things like navigation. It runs also in Blender, so while at it …
The plugin is feature complete with this version. And does what it should do. But there might still be some quirks. And i might add some more hotkeys. When you think you know a hotkey that should make it into the plugin, then feel free to make a suggestion
It is in Other/ Blender Addons
A new binary of Bforartists is available. Version 0.2.1 is another development snapshot, but it is nevertheless fully functional. The download can be found in the download section: http://www.bforartists.de/content/download
200 issues were fixed. 60 of it were the Blender 2.76 a and b patches. 140 ones are actual changes at Bforartists.
I totally forgot to post about the progress of Bforartists here ^^
To make a long story short, it’s nearly four weeks now that i have released version 0.2.0 of Bforartists already. Which is technically equal to Blender 2.76. Minus the game engine. The fork itself is going well. The progress is slow but steady. And i still search for volunteers

Currently i work at the keymap. And i found some little flaws at my Moonshine Blue theme while working at it, since i use this theme in Bforartists. I have fixed the flaws, and have uploaded the new version here. Download stays the same. It’s in Other / Blender Addons / Moonshine Blue Theme.
I have started what nobody wanted to start so far, me included. A Blender fork. The project has now reached the point to call for help. The point to ask for volunteers, to organize the pipeline, and the point to start the development. So here we go.
What is Bforartists?
Yes, you have read right. Bforartists is a fork of the popluar open source 3d software Blender. And is, similar to Blender, of course also open source and under the GPL V3 license.
A this big project is of course nothing anymore that i could develop here at Reiner’s Tilesets. Here you can find the webpage for the project: http://www.bforartists.de
A Blender fork? R u MAD?
No! I know exactly what i am doing
One of the things that i always wanted to rework is my Blender theme. The new version is called Moonshine Blue, and can be found in the Others, Blender Addons category.
EDIT 22.8.2015, why does nobody tell me that the link links to the wrong file? Fixed by now. Now the link really downloads the Moonshineblue theme …
And that’s it. Here comes the final version. Beta versions are removed now. Webplayer too. The game can be found in the games category.
This was fun. On with something completely different
Another Beta. Improved the shooting a bit more and fixed a few flaws.
It’s in the games category.
There have been two more problems with the new movement method. Fixed.
