Pre-Built Godot Engine Binaries w/ Voxels & FastNoise

This page has my custom binaries for Godot Engine with the selection of modules I use and develop on. All binaries have been built with the official dockers, except for Windows which were built with MSVC.

These binaries allow you to use these modules without compiling the engine yourself.

Below the downloads, you’ll also find my voxel demo and tutorials for use with these binaries.

Modules included

  • Voxel Tools for infinitely paged blocky and smooth voxel terrains.
  • FastNoise wrapper for the FastNoise library. There is a PR to eventually merge this module into Godot.
  • FastNoiseSIMD wrapper for the FastNoiseSIMD library. This module will not be merged into Godot.
  • VoxelGeneratorFastNoiseSIMD for Voxel Tools that takes advantage of FastNoiseSIMD.

Build notes:

  1. Only Windows and Linux have been tested. Let me know if the other builds or export templates work or not.
  2. Win32 + mono does not work on Windows/64. (need to test this with new msvc build)
  3. Mono + IOS is not currently supported by Godot.
  4. Voxel Tools does not work on HTML5 (due to lack of threading support).
  5. FastNoiseSIMD does not work with: HTML5, Android x86/x86-64 (ARM7/8 OK). IOS does not build with the NEON instruction set. It’s unknown if it works with any of the other SIMD levels. Compare against regular FastNoise and see if it’s any faster, or call get_simd_level() and see if you get a number higher than 0 back.

Voxel Demo

To use these binaries to make voxel games, I suggest you follow these steps:

  1. Download the newest appropriate binary above.
  2. Download my demo. If you are using the old binaries from November, you must use this specific version.
  3. Watch the tutorial video below.
  4. Read through the written documentation.
  5. Review the troubleshooting section below.

Voxel Tutorials

How To Use Voxel Tools

 

Voxel Troubleshooting

Godot has reached the end of the scene file

This occurs because the build of Godot you are using does not recognize the objects named in the scene file. The .tscn is just a text file, so you can open it in notepad.

If you open a VoxelTools scene in a regular build of Godot you’ll get this error because Godot doesn’t recognize the “VoxelTerrain” or “VoxelLodTerrain” classes.

You might be using the old binaries with the new demo, and classes have been renamed. You can try manually renaming the classes in the text file. In Godot, press SHIFT+F1 for help and you can search for class names built into that binary.

For instance, at one point the class VoxelStreamNoise was renamed to VoxelGeneratorNoise. The scene file wouldn’t open, but by manually changing it in notepad, we were able to open the file.

I don’t see any voxels

This is almost always because of a mismatch of settings. Work has been done to eliminate or at least warn when settings won’t produce any results.

For blocky, you need a Voxel Library. Your stream needs to be set to a channel of TYPE.

For smooth voxels, your channel must be set to SDF.

If you haven’t done so already then watch the tutorial video above which shows you exactly how to use it. Also, review the written documentation.

Zylann’s demos are generally out of date, so avoid those.

Something else

If there’s another issue you’re having with Voxel Tools specifically, you can open an issue. If the issue is with one of the FastNoise modules, or my demo, open issues on those specific repositories.

You can also leave a comment below, especially if it’s about these binaries and whether they work or not. I’d like to know.

      Make sure you’re running the right 32/64 bit version for your OS. The command below shows my system is 64-bit. 32-bit would say something like x86, i386, i686.

      $ uname -i
      x86_64

      Otherwise, perhaps you need to install some dependencies like opengl or sound libraries. Post the output of ldd so we can see what is missing:

      $ ldd godot_3.2+4569f5ec8_x11.64

    Linux version not working here either. Running from cmd gives me this error:
    /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libm.so.6: version `GLIBC_2.29′ not found (required by /Godot_v3.2+4569f5ec82_x11.64)

    Same thing happens for both 32 and 64 bit versions. Godot 3.2 official beta1 runs fine though…

    The ldd command gives this:
    ldd Godot_v3.2+4569f5ec82_x11.64
    ./Godot_v3.2+4569f5ec82_x11.64: /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libm.so.6: version `GLIBC_2.29′ not found (required by ./Godot_v3.2+4569f5ec82_x11.64)

      Indeed my libc is 2.29 which was released in January. The current is 2.30, released in August. Have you done updates for your system? I imagine every distro has a newer version by now. It’s likely called libc6, but might be called glibc or just libc and will likely have other dependent packages attached. Just do auto-updates but also look for libc6 specifically. What distro and version are you on?

        Hi, thanks for the reply. I investigated this and you’re right. Seems like my system is a bit out of date, despite being the latest Linux Mint 19.2 with all updates installed. The problem seems to be that it’s based on Ubuntu 18 LTS (Bionic Beaver), which uses GCLIB 2.27.

        I guess I could mess around with the packages or compile Godot with voxels myself. I might even change distros, not sure yet what I’ll do. But I’ll get this working 🙂

        • Cory Petkovsek Post authorReply

          I’ve just uploaded new versions using the official build environment. Linux is now compiled against glibc 2.14 so should work for you.
