As always, we will do a short check around new features and highlights. To see detailed information visit the official release notes.


Changes

.NET 8 compatibility

Recently released .NET 8 brings lots of new improvements and performance. Currently, Flax 1.7 targets .NET 7 (required to build games) but you can use Flax Editor with .NET 8 (if you have it installed). In this update, we fixed some compatibility issues and updated Launcher to handle SDK installations correctly. For the next Flax 1.8, we plan to migrate to .NET 8 as it’s LTS version.

Drag&drop into lists

Array editor UI supports dragging objects into it now (GH-1850). This can easily improve every-day workflow when using Flax Editor.

Convert constant to parameter in Surface

Constant values in the Surface editor can be converted into parameter with a single click (GH-1671). This operation replaces node connection and supports undo.

Surface comments ordering

Visject Surface Graphs such as Materials, Particles, Anim Graph, Visual Script have new comment boxes that support proper ordering and proper layering operations (GH-1759). Now, you can move comments upfront or send them to the back with a single click.

Launcher update

We’ve released a new Flax Launcher version which contains various fixes and usability improvements such as better highlight of the currently selected Engine version and displaying the engine version that was used to open the project last time.

    Are you in the discord? I’m sure you could get some help there in the meantime.

I second this. I come from blueprints in UE and I am excited for learning visual scripting in Flax.

I would like this also. I am not a programmer by any stretch of the imagination!
