Welcome to the orcs in the basement!

To get some spare change for noodles and bacon SkinEdit is now owned by a company. Hopefully this will lead to more updates as I get more motivation updating without any loss for all you users out there. If you have any opinions about this feel free to tell me.

On this blog I’ll try to keep everyone up to date with the news of all the programs I develop.

Since most of you are probably here because of SkinEdit I’ll start with some news related to the next version of SkinEdit:

  • Hopefully a more stable previewer
  • A system for developing your own tools and possibly other plugins
  • A system for uploading your backgrounds, parts and skins to the Internet and also to use the skin
  • Better support for small monitors
  • Better support for HI-DEF skins, creating your own backgrounds etc.
  • Possibly a change to the background system to a template system.
  • Possibly a way to buy gear such as t-shirts or a 3D print of your character

Finally, just to make it clear: Any program that is free now will stay free, just because I start a company does not mean I will start charging for SkinEdit or any other freeware program I released and I plan to continue to focus mostly on freeware (I think most minecraft users either won’t pay or can’t pay for minecraft related software).

    Those are great plans for the update I am really looking forward to them.

    Also: The site looks great, I really like it and the humor behind it and the images.
    So, I wish you good luck with Orcsinthebasement.
    May you find lots of (intelligent) slave orcs for your company.

    - Your friend, TRUCKER
