Fixed Some stuff, removed some dead stuff and re-formatted list. Added social media links and some extra stuff.

PS: Social media is more important than you might think for a creator.

I'm not sure this is the thread to ask this, but I do not want to create a new thread over something that's been asked a million times. There's a game I've been playing for a year now Alone (XP) I searched F95 for it but I am not seeing it. I would like to add it to the games section but either because I am a new member or just dumb, I cannot add/share it.

It has its own wiki (fandom) walkthrough which was abandoned but I've been contributing to it. It an RPG game similar to Clair's quest, but a different storyline all together. Not sure it would be popular on F95. But the creator has a blog site and a patreon page, and provides small updates every 2 weeks, which are free for anyone to get from Patreon or the blog site.

And it is an Adult x-rated game...

Ooo, this is very cool. Thanks for this.

[EDIT]

I strongly recommend putting Stencyl on the game engines list.

Great list, but might I suggest adding Clip Studio Paint? Its a good tool for manga and illustrations in general.

is a superb raster graphics editor - free/open-source, cross-platform (Linux/Windows/macOS)
is another cross-platform graphics editor with minimalist GUI.
I want to second my support of these since they haven't been added to the list yet. Krita is easily the best of the free digital painting programs out there by a fairly wide margin. It's free, open-source, cross-platform and feature packed. It has some very high quality brush engines, support for animation production, and its text and svg support got a lot better with the recent 4.0 release and should get even better with the next update.

MyPaint is a minimalistic program that focuses on sketching and painting with a graphics tablet. In pursuit of this goal it has a very simple GUI that stays out of your way when you don't need it, its very lightweight on system resource use, very stable, comes with an unlimited canvas, a nice brush engine, and fairly intuitive shortcuts. It's my favorite program for sketching and brainstorming ideas and I use it on a nearly daily basis.

Another useful addition for the Graphics Editor section would be:
Verve Painter
This is a bit of an experimental software that focuses on accelerated 3d fluid dynamics for a very unique and realistic painting experience. If you'd like to find out more about it, you can check out its forums and/or the dev's YouTube channel which has several demonstration videos.



EDIT: Decided to change the main link for Verve from the download page to the user manual page which includes the link to the download page but also gives a good overview of how the software is used.

Another useful addition to the Engine Tools section would be UnityStudio:

That page may name it AssetStudio, but that is just because it is a forked continuation of the original AssetStudio that has largely in part gone without any updates for a long time. It may also have to do with the dev looking to avoid legal issues coming from Unity. But when you go to the release page on there, the packages all use the newer UnityStudio name.

It can extract just about anything from the vast majority of Unity games that use versions of the engine from 2.5 up through 2017.4 (2017.3 if you use the latest stable release.) It can even get rigged/weighted models in FBX format as long as you also install FBX SDK 2015.1 ( ) and configure UnityStudio so it knows where you installed that SDK.

Pretty neat list you got there!
A useful addition to the imageboard category would be the "3D Animation General" threads over on /aco/ ( ). Currently on thread #12, with a super helpful OP that spotlights a couple artists/projects everytime. Also the anons in there actually care about the subject, when they're not arguing about futa.

Seeing as you have paint.net in the graphic tools section, might as well add .

It is a great tool for creating 2D sprite art and animations, very simple and intuitive to use. It is very cheap to buy but there is also an older official free version that you can download that works just fine as well.
