Can there be an explanation in the docs, or on this forum for now, on the difference between kit and create? In the dev docs and most places its advertised, Kit is pitched as the developer SDK and as some base-platform for developing all this other stuff.
However, there is kit.exe on my harddrive inside of the create application, which gets called Kit Dev App (on the banner). There is also the installable kit application, which is launched and called “Kit Mini”. The Kit docs will sometimes say do something “next to the kit.exe”, other times the path shows its in the create folder, instead of the kit launched app.
I was having some trouble with custom extensions working correctly, which led to exploring more of the samples/demos. To give some context for what seems confusing (at least to me) about the ‘pitch’ that kit builds modular components and dependencies are just brought it:
In Create, I can enable the physics demo extension. When doing so, I can also see lots of physics scene parameters.
I can also launch kit.exe from inside the Create folder. After doing that and enabling the same extension, the physics scene data does not show up.
Finally, if I open the deformable body demo:
(1) It works in the Create application
(2) The model loads in the Kit.exe application in the create folder: but the sphere does not fall and there is no physics
(3) The model doesn’t even load in the Kit Mini application.
p.s. since I’m not allowed to upload more than one image, I can’t show all the examples.
