Our voice

Hi friends,

We thank you for your interest in 3D-Coat, for your support of us in any manner. Without your interest and support there would be neither 3D-Coat nor our company.

Please, don’t take us as nerds, but we would like to share with you what we believe is important and what lies beyond the plain business relationships. 

When we came to understanding that 3D-Coat is getting more and more popular and now is used in all major world game studios we asked ourselves - what is our responsibility as the creators? 

It was a serious question for us – we understand that our children of different ages play video games created with the help of our own software.  We would like them to learn kindness, compassion and purity. We would sincerely want them to play educational, positive and family games, as well as watch similar video content. There is such a lack of it these days. We are partners with you. Let’s create such products which our children could play and watch! We reap what we sow in this life. Let’s sow the kind in our life and in life of our children! 

We would be really happy if 3D-Coat could be used to create beautiful works of art to inspire and bring joy, and not provoke hatred, aggression to people, addiction or carnality. We are mostly Christian team, so this question is especially sharp for us because we know that God's law treats hatred as murder and infidelity in mind as real adultery, and consequences of our sins influence the whole life: Jesus said to his disciples: “Things that cause people to stumble are bound to come, but woe to anyone through whom they come.” So then every one of us shall give account of himself to God.

We are worried about the fate of a society in which depravity is often the norm. Can we change anything?? 

As the creators of 3D-Coat, we ask you to use 3D-Coat with responsibility - how it influences other people, our and your children and the whole society? Let us endeavour to use our creativity to better ourselves and people around!

Of course, such a position could provoke many questions – and one of them would be – does God exist at all? 

Three guys from our team are professional physicists. Andrew, the Lead Developer of 3D-Coat wrote an article on quantum electrodynamics when on his fourth year of studies. He graduated in Theoretical Physics which helped on multiple occasions with the program development, in particular when creating the auto-retopology (AUTOPO) algorithm. Stas, Financial Director, also graduated from the Physics department together with Andrew, then became a PhD in Theor. Physics only to continue giving lectures on Statistical Physics in the Kiev National University as a hobby. Vladimir, our Web Developer also graduated from the Physics Department in Astronomy. We as many very smart and famous scientists found that science and God's existence do not contradict each other. The science answers the question "How?", and the Bible answers the question "Why?". If I throw a stone, it will fly along the given trajectory. Physics explains how it is going to fly. But Why? That question is beyond the science – because I threw it.

Also the variety of extremely complex living beings from amoeba to humans instigates a thought about the Creator’s existence – if you found a watch in the desert, someone had created it.  

It is fascinating to know that the most popular article ever on Wall Street Journal on-line is “Science Increasingly Makes the Case for God”.

And, of course, there is a purpose of the creation and a purpose of your personal existence. Please watch this short video which explains it.

Our sins make our soul dead inside. Christ was crucified for all our sins and forgave everything. Forgiveness is open but one can receive it only if he repents (turns from sin to God) and believe. When I repent then Christ brings forgiveness and life inside of me. "Very truly I tell you, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life and will not be judged but has crossed over from death to life." That’s all.

Life is not an easy thing, you know. We do good and we do bad. When we do bad we feel that in conscience. And it’s hard to live with bad feelings inside and without the answer to the basic human questions like: where I am from, what will be after the death..? If I feel bad for my actions in my soul, and if my soul really exists (many people see their bodies in clinical death) it is reasonable to believe that I will feel the same after the death, and the Bible says even worse…

We tried different things, but the fact that Christ died for our sins and forgave everything, touched us personally. In some sense we felt grace of God when repented in our sins and that grace continues to support us in life. We understand that feelings of son in parable about the prodigal son: (“For this son of mine was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found.’ So they began to celebrate.”)

And we are happy with that now. That’s true. And we would be happy if you may feel that as well!

Respectfully yours,

The Staff of Pilgway
