We’re excited to announce that The Machinery is now in Open Beta – available for anyone to download and try out without pre-approval from us.
Full announcement is in the blog:
For everybody in the Closed Beta, you can continue to use your 2020.9 version of The Machinery as before, but to run the new 2020.10 version you need to create an Our Machinery account. Here is a sign up link:
Sorry for making you jump through these hoops. It’s the price you pay for being ahead of the curve!
Since the beta is now open, I have also opened this forum. The posts are now viewable to everyone (without needing to create an account) and account creation is open to the public. If you are concerned about any of your posts being visible to the general public, please delete them.
Note that the forum uses a different account than the Our Machinery website. We might implement single sign-on at some point.
I have removed the download links to the Closed Beta versions of The Machinery (2020.9 and earlier), since the forum is now open to everybody and the old versions don’t have the EULA and login screens that we require for the Open Beta. If you have already downloaded them, you can continue to use them, but you should really get the new stuff!
I have also moved all posts out of the “Closed Beta” category, since that category was restricted to users of the closed beta and will delete that category shortly. We’re all one big family now!
