Community meeting: Edifice (March 2021)

Hi, community! :fire:

The 5th major release of Ignition is coming out at the end of March, so we’d like to dedicate this month’s community meeting to demoing all the cool new features that will be available on Ignition Edifice :fire: :office: ! We’ll also be kicking off Edifice’s tutorial party together with the community! :tada:

Among the new features introduced in Edifice, we have sky, heightmaps, light controls, and much more! Check out the full roadmap to have an idea of the features that will be demonstrated during the meeting.


The tutorial party is a great chance to get familiar with various features of Ignition. During a few days, developers and users will go over all tutorials using Edifice pre-releases to make sure everything is working well before the stable release. See the Ignition Dome tutorial party for an example.
