Title

Hello! You haven't heard from me for quite a while now. I've been kept busy by school exams (still am) so I haven't had much time for PR, but I haven't stopped working on the project.

Pre-alpha video showcase!

I could go on and on and explain every single thing that was changed and added, but It's easier to just show you, so here is a video:

Some of the changes:

  • new 3D models for every module
  • diffferent types of solar system attractors, including pulsars and black holes
  • complete overhaul of weaponary
  • improved building system
  • new effects
  • etc.

A very short learning curve, stability, cross-plattform and a good performance made the engine my choice.

Not to forget that the community is very active and nearly every question gets a good answer.

I'm excited what they will do next.

Thanks! As for the "next up", the most prevalent milestones would be further improved Android support as well as finally going Stable.

Along with that, we'll be doing a lot of cool new publicity stuff now that I'm done with my education :D

This engine is why I'm going to learn Java instead of C++. It proves to me that AAA Quality graphics, excellent gameplay, good responsiveness, and stability can be had all at once with an interpreted language.

By "good responsiveness" you mean "lag galore", right?

Sorry I couldn't get back to you sooner, I gotta figure out how to turn on notifications for these comments.

To answer your question, this engine is entirely free and open source. There's nothing stopping you from visiting jmonkeyengine.org right now and downloading the latest Beta release. Have fun!

Developer of 3079 here -- My game wouldn't have existed if it wasn't for this engine. This engine has done so many great things for me, and knowing it is purely Java based allows it to be completely cross-platform without any extra work. Did I mention it is free? These guys deserve tons of credit. This engine is fast and full of features. It also includes a complete Software Development Kit with terrain editors and all sorts of gizmos. Highly recommend this!
