    Maclanahan, I'm sorry your thread was temporarily derailed. Your project is amazing. This is so cool.

    I love it! Gold starfish for you, it has so much potential and is is really fun to play with I'm sure you've already thought of this but adding a drawing tool could be neat? Discmamer: I know nothing about programming or if that's even possible with the 3D concept...

    I've actually looked into the drawing tool, and sadly there are several logistics issues involved. One being really resource intensive, another would prevent the program running on all mobile devices, and the tools available are of less than desirable quality.

    This is why I decided to go with pre-set patterns. If it all work out though, I am planning to add the ability to upload your own texture to preview on the tail, but first I need to still learn a couple of technologies.

    Thank you for the feedback!

    Oh great I was thinking it would be cool if you could upload your own texture! I haven't done a whole lot of 3D stuff but I had been thinking about how in Blender you can add a photo or texture to the model.

    THANK YOU EVERYONE FOR THE FEEDBACK AND SHOWING YOUR CREATIONS!!! It really makes my day!

    Things I have learned:
    - iOS8 is required to run the 3D
    - It was nice to get reviews not from programmers. (It was interesting to see drama on a forum that wasn't about what technologies I used and what they think would have been better. (Or my least favorite: Gamergate ) )

    Yeah it's still an awesome program! Where are you from? I'm from Michigan and am wondering if you live around the border somewhere?

    Thing I figured out today:

    As far as I can tell, WebGL is not supported by Windows Phones so the program will not work with them. Sorry for the inconvenience.

    Looks like chrome has webGL disabled on Ubuntu do to some driver issues with the gpu, you can override it but that won't guarantee that it will work. :/
