Minecraft Video and PlumeriaSC 2 Update

Since I am a huge Minecraft fan I created this video to show off a cool little trick I found to create a faster way to get around. I call it a water rail and it uses pressure plates, torches, stone, water, and a boat. This video was made in peaceful mode and not creative so whatever mode you are in should work.
Also I have updated PlumeriaSC 2 to version 1.1.5. PlumeriaSC has been put through some rigorous tests including prime number factorization and a comon core problem. I have not found any new bugs in the past month so the main bugs are gone.

Tutorials and VBAs

We are still working hard to get PlumeriaSC 2 ready as soon as possible. The latest thing I have been working on is the tutorials. I have programmed PlumeriaSC 2 to follow my selections and then use an artificial intelligence to generate comments based on the selections. So why automate it? I loathe writing tutorials and in PlumeriaSC 2 the tutorial lessons usually take a week to create. With the AI I can walk it through my selections in thirty minutes and use another thirty to give it the human touch. In my last post I wrote about VBAs (Vertex Buffer Array). The only problem is that they are really named VAO (Vertex Array Object). In my opinion the main difference with a VBA is that it owns its contents in memory (a buffer) just like a VBO (Vertex Buffer Object) and a VAO does not. A VAO only points to the VBOs that are already in memory.
