Platinum Arts Sandbox Free 3D Game Maker is a free open source 3D Game Maker, world creator and 3D Game Design program currently being used in many schools throughout the world that allows kids and adults to create their own video games, worlds, levels, adventures and quests, even cooperatively! The goal is to make it accessible to kids but also powerful enough for full game projects. With a simple click and roll of a mouse wheel users can modify the world however they want.

I wonder when character models can be implemented more easily... Although i lack any experience in 3d modeling...

It could get compatibility with other 3d models and use their animations to set it right... But it depends on this engine...

It is md2, md3, and md5, (and .obj too technically :D), which are quake 2, quake 3, and quake 4/doom 3 format. Take care!

I love the progress in this WYSIWYG game engine, but the only problem is that whenever I run any Cube Game Engine game (Cube and Cube 2) it runs at an extremely low FPS (1 FPS!) even though my computer is above the system requirements for both and everything should be working in theory. Has anyone have/had this problem, and does anyone know how to fix it?

the only advice i can offer is install the graphics drivers, without more details, I can't help much more.
(such as graphics card, GFX driver version, cpu, etc)
