Sophie's Dice v1.5 - Sweet Update!

This update is pretty substantial but the first thing I should say is what isn't included in it - online play. I have said that I would aim for it to be included in v1.5, but I haven't managed to make that happen. It's still an important feature that I'm hoping to add, but this isn't the version that has it.

So, here's what is in v1.5!

Lots of New Dice Shapes!

It's a dice update from me so OF COURSE there are new dice shapes! By my count there are 30 new ones for you to choose from, some are silly (new d1 shapes!), some are there so you have more options when making your polyhedral dice sets (You want to play D&D but you want your dice to be unique!), and some are just inherently cool geometry (Like the pyramihedra, or the new fidgie, or tbh those d1s I mentioned!).

This brings the total number of dice models you can customise up to 385, which is more than um, any dice set or app available ever. Okay tbh I haven't checked that but the odds that I'm wrong are very low - trust me, I know dice so I know my odds ;)

New Graphics Options

This update makes the app PRETTIER THAN EVER. I would especially like to draw your attention to the new "environment" setting in the "Settings>Environment" menu. There are now five lighting options (instead of none) and each can show off your dice in a whole new light (pun INTENDED!)

Also added are the new graphics settings for Ambient Occlusion and Motion Blur. These are enabled by default (because they make stuff look way better) but you might want to disable them if your computer begins to struggle with such things.


Another new thing that makes everything nicer to look at is my new Glitter shader, it replaces the old one (which is now called the "Foil" shader, so you can switch back to that if you prefer). This has a much more accurate glitter effect and a new option to specify how fine the glitter 'grain' is. (Heads-up, very fine glitter can appear noisy/pixelly)

New Included Examples and Images

There are new included images, mostly so I can include example dice in "ancient" pipped d6 style (btw have you ever searched online for images of ancient dice? It's a good time and I recommend it),

and also so I can add slot machine dice (including an example roll condition that spawns various amounts of coins when you get specific patterns.)

(Also Just to be clear; real slot machines are an evil trap! Don't ever gamble unless you know the odds, they are in your favour, and you can afford to lose!)

Oh I've also added a couple of new example roll expressions to demonstrate comparison functions. 👍

Roll Condition Parameters

The most nerdy part of the update post is here! I've given the values that you can use in Roll Conditions a HUGE overhaul. So now instead of something like "d6!{<3}" (roll d6, explode on less than three), you could say;

  • !{<=3} (explode on less than or equal to three)
  • !{3..5} (explode on numbers from 3 to 5)
  • !{X} (explode on values of X, where X could be a named result, sheet value, or preset variable

And you can even mix and match; "!{X..7,>=Y}" would explode on numbers from X's value to 7, and numbers greater than or equal to Y's value.

For more details, check the Roll Condition Parameters section of the Dice Notation Documentation.


Look I know it's not glamorous to talk about fixes but there are a lot for this version, and when I do a lot of work I'm going to brag about it. There are a lot of fixes. I did a lot of work. Feel free to praise me <3
In all seriousness many of them are fixing problems that nobody but me ever notices because they are really obscure. I'd like to think that means that overall the app is working pretty well (since the stuff that does

 break doesn't stand out), but every new update is a chance for me to break something else so if you do come across problems then let me know!

Anyway, that is it for this update, if you want to see the full list of changes you can check the changelog as ever.

If you read this far, thanks! I know some of you are still using this app fairly frequently for your online RPGs and stuff, and I just want you to know I love you! Thanks so much for your support! <3

How do I install the app for Linux? I have version 1.5. I tried unzipping. And that's as far as I got.
