Is it possible to create procedural galaxies with this engine (game line no man's sky)? What would mean to stream in and out voxels? If not yet, is it on the roadmap?

Also I can't find coding options in free version.

Hi & thanks for the questions!

Is it possible to create procedural galaxies with this engine (game line no man's sky)?

No, this isn't currently possible.

What would mean to stream in and out voxels? If not yet, is it on the roadmap?

We currently support streaming voxel models over the internet from another Avoyd game, but we do not support streaming from disk. This is on the roadmap but we do not yet have a planned timetable for when this will be done.

Also I can't find coding options in free version.

The free and paid version are currently the same. Avoyd is not a game engine as such, it is a voxel editor with a prototype game. We intend to develop and release a Plugin / Mod SDK at some point.

What were you hoping to make with Avoyd?

A game like 'No mans sky' or 'Astroneer'. Procedural universes.

The Plugin / Mod SDK we plan would enable you to make procedural voxel content in Avoyd, but we don't intend Avoyd becoming a voxel game engine for developers to make their own games with.

If you are interested in Voxel Game Development you might want to check out the VoxelGameDev sub-reddit and also the Voxel Plugin for Unreal (Astroneer was made using Unreal).
