Hello Tom (Heartbreaker)! :)
I know for myself, sometimes it takes 5 minutes, requires moral preparation for a week or even more (this happens when you are busy with other very important things).


Therefore, there is a suggestion - I come to your office with a case of beer (so that you would be distracted from important things! ) and you and I make a location for Archicad 25 in one evening!

Is it a deal?!

P.s. Warn in advance what kind of beer you prefer!

Just the news of this thread, that development is suspended, and there are no plans at present to develop Corona for anything other than 3ds Max and C4D, sorry.

That's so sad, I wish there was some more software supported. People are even developing their own plugins at this point.

After being acquired by Chaos, I have no hope on this project because the Chaos group definitely hates Archicad users. Please tell me the opposite :/

There are still no plans to develop Corona for ARCHICAD - this is unrelated to merging with Chaos (5 years ago now...) and is simply due to not wanting to slow down development by adding another host application to support, meaning we remain focused on only C4D and Max (ARCHICAD is in no way singled out, we have no plans to port Corona to any other host app).

There is some truth in that... Enscape is well configured to work with Archicad but this is not due to Chaos. Corona was already working great as a beta version, we find it hard to understand why the project was discontinued.

The reasons are not hard to understand and are explained in the first post in this thread - there simply are not enough developers on the team to expand into adapting Corona for another piece of software. To do so would mean taking people away from the existing teams and dramatically slowing down development of Corona for Max and C4D, which we are not willing to do as we have too many established users relying on us and the software. No-one would be happy with one release every 2 years, or releases in similar timeframes as current but which had half or a quarter of the features we normally put into a release, and the impact to development time would likely be on that kind of a scale.

We are not willing to compromise on our support of our existing user base, and this means we are not considering developing Corona for any other software, sorry.

you have started a corona road map for archicad and have enticed certain professionals, the truth is that since you were acquired by Chaos you have been liked by higher orders. harsh truth
