What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Modbox is a sandbox with a focus on user creation, modding, and multiplayer. We want to give early VR adopters a chance to build, and based on what they create and the feedback they give we can evolve the game.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Currently we have no set date for release - we plan to keep updating for many years”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“We are continuing to add more options, mods, and modding tools”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Currently we have workshop support, multiplayer, a large amount of our own entities and options, and mod support for users to build their own entities to add to their creations.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“Modbox will most likely increase in price before release.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We want to open up the game's development and adjust the game based on creations shared and mods created on the Steam workshop.”

Modbox Update 11 - Classes, Swordfighting NPCs, Mannequin Hunt, Lower price

Update video:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OIP9wudbwTI&feature=youtu.be

We've lowered the price to $15 dollars instead of $20. For the players who just want to play the game and not create content I think the $15 price point makes sense for now

New Featured Creations
http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=909664966
Mannequin Hunt - One team are hunters trying to find the other Mannequin team, in rooms full of mannequins. Definitely the most fun I've had online in Modbox, even with 2 players

http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=908950345 Hell Bridge - Waves of Skeletons and flying skulls.

http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=909478569 Monster Hunters - Online game mode where one team are hunters trying to kill a single person on the other team, the Monster, with 10x the health and 3x the size

Large Changes
- New 'Melee Fighter' AI System - can fight with any sword/shield toy. Right now this is used by the 'SwordFighter' NPC in the Basics mod, and the Skeletons in Dungeon mod. This was the first use of attaching toys to NPCs, we will expand on this to add gun support. Also new NPC options like Team.
- Class Manager Entity - Adds class options for multiplayer. Player Classes can set the player's model, starting weapons in Holsters, locomotion speed, scale. We will be expanding on this system for the next update also
- Horror Enviroment mod, and Horror Props mod. With over 300 new entities for creating Horror style enviroments
- Fast Mod Loading - it now only loads the parts of mods used in the creation. Which really speeds up loading creations using large mods like the Horror Environment mod
- Undo System - We finally added a Undo button in the build menu.
- Network optimizations and a lot of bug fixes. Fixed a lot of issues people were having with Holsters. And decreased bandwidth usage. We also fixed a lot of possible bugs when joining a game mid game

Other fixes/small changes
- Only shows level bounds when using locomotion
- New holster options: set max respawns, respawn time
- New option to have the comfort cube always off
- Upgraded Morph3d avatars to version 1.6, which comes with some speed boosts
- 'Allow Scaling' modifier to scale any entity
- Fixed issues with Entity category icons not updating
- Option for Timer to beep every second and buzz when over

As always let us know if you have any issues / ideas / comments - Thanks!

ModboxSDK now released! Intro video + tutorial

Video + Quick Tutorial on making a Shotgun mod:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TS9M1fsQO5E

The ModboxSDK is finally out! It took a long time since making a Unity game fully moddable is insanely hard.

Modders can use it to make any content to upload to Steam Workshop - new entities, environments, avatars, game modes, anything. Along that with you can run the full Modbox game in the SDK, and see all gameplay source code. Later on we will be launching a public Github repo to submit code changes for Modbox updates.

Online Mod Wiki/Guide: http://www.modboxgame.com/node/46

From the start of Modbox development the goal has been to make a fully moddable game from the start - so this SDK has always been a main focus.

If you don't have Modbox and you are a Unity dev wanting to try the SDK - Fill out this sign up form here and we will send a free key: http://www.modboxgame.com/node/766

If you have any questions on using it we have a SDK discussion forum on our Steam forums:
http://steamcommunity.com/app/414120/discussions/5/
Also a Slack group with a #sdk channel, which you can sign up for here:
https://modboxslack.herokuapp.com/

Thanks!

About This Game

Modbox is a VR sandbox where you can use mods to create game experiences and share them online.

  • Share your work on Steam workshop ingame, or try out others online
  • Construct with primitives by just touching them together. Add in hinge joints, ropes, propellers, rockets, piston, balloons. Then control them by wiring them together with throttles and levers.
  • Pick up and play with toys to interact with the world - including baseball bats, basketballs, crossbows, pistols, chainsaws...
