I found this handy reference a while ago. But yeah, we are kinda screwed.

At least they haven't invented X up (yet)

You'll never believe my startup idea

Dude you totally stole that idea from me, now you owe me half

There's only one quadrant of this that should be acceptable to anyone! Positive X, positive Y!

[-] [email protected] 6 points 9 months ago

Nope, the bottom right quadrant is the acceptable one. Z is up and follows the right-hand rule. I will die on this hill.

you'll get bitten during projection when depth is converted to 2D screen coordinates, which is X and Y. Better do it right from the start.

Minecraft ruined me as a kid. I'm still mad that so many softwares use Z as up. I'm still not happy about it.

Y up feels much more comfortable for me.

[-] [email protected] 5 points 9 months ago

Y up is also the standard in 2D graphs, so it makes sense that Z is depth.

I don't think anyone got my joke 🤷
