dim3 v2.0: open-source game engine

updated 09:50 pm EDT, Mon July 17, 2006

dim3 engine updated

Klink Software has released dim3 v2.0, an update to its free open-source 3D game engine. It is described as a '3D game without content' and is aimed at two specific groups: map makers and coders. Mod makers may be interested in the fact that this engine is a blank canvas into which they can directly their drop the content--the opposite of the usual game where they have to work the content around a prebuilt game. Coders have the flexibility of a fully open-source development engine so they can modify the code as they see fit. Dim3 features complete support for lighting, shadows, pixel effects, architecture, models, scripting, effects, vehicles, networking, cameras, and built in editors including an animation editor. The license to use and publish dim3 games is completely free of charge. Games can be developed in only OS X but can be published to OS X, Windows XP, and Linux. Mac OS X 10.3.9 or later is required to use this editor running on a G3, G4, G5, or Intel-based processor.
