Other game maker programs

  • I always wanted a software that would let you make 3d games, with loads of assets and w/out any scripting coding knowladge... but not 3d game maker... so i gues this never happens XD

    I'm not getting in to this conversation about weather C2 should be free or not - because it shouldn't

  • I was slightly disappointed at C2 going commercial at first but then I understood it will have faster development, take a look at ZeldaClassic game engine for example, ZC's last version is unstable and latest version has been under construction for I don't know how long and it's not even released yet, SRB2 is pretty much the same, the dev's work on it when they feel like it and they can abandon it at will, not to mention most have a job and a family/life, it took them 11 years for version 2.0.X to come out since version 1.90, hence I understand and support Ashley's decision here, nobody wants a product that keeps getting slown down and having low priorities and possibly forgotten now does anyone? I sure don't.

    Anyway few may know about this but I'l post it here.

    http://www.apgardner.karoo.net/retrib/

    Retribution engine, it is an easy FPS game creator without any coding knowledge needed, it is also free and you can produce your favorite Quake 2/HL1 styled FPS game for free with it, tough you are not allowed to sell them according to it's license but you can make a full fledged large FPS game with it, it isn't widely known either so there aren't any custom games/maps/whatever made by it around sadly.

    Compared to FPS Creator I find Retrib's AI much more fun and harder and it doesn't take ages to load a game and it is somewhat more flexible and easier to use and a much more professional map editor program. (it looks slightly like Valve's hammer editor for HL games)

  • This thread was not created to argue why c2 has went commercial. I'm not, in any way, against the decision that Construct will be commercial. We don't have any right to stop you from earning your livelihood the way you want.(unless you start smuggling drugs )

    But I hope that you guys don't become like YoYo games or Click Team, because then, someday a group of uni students making plugins for C2 will team-up to make a free open source alternative to C2.

    [quote:2z8ry9ag]Whoever is complaining then I'm assuming they r still young kids, so advice to them : ask your parents to buy you c2 for easter, christams instead of new game

    Labeling people kids is not right, people don't want to spend money can't be the only reason. Just to let you know, different people live in different situations/conditions.

    Jamesx and LavaWave: Thanks for the links, I'll add them to the list. Maratis3D looks very promising.

    So? what's wrong with that? that means more game making software to choose from.

    I see you added retrib and SWFPSC, retrib's development has stopped as you labeled but you should also label SWFPSC development stopped as well, since it is also dropped in favor of the now possibly vaporware Plutonium3D.

    Also another game engine comes to mind (perhaps the easiest 3D game creator software known, not counting the crappy game maker 3D) Realityfactory, it does not have awesome nextgen shaders tough and it's 3D power is akin to Quake 1 and the earliest 3D games known but it's something for hobbyist I must say.

    I said that because I think this was the way Construct was born.

    Plutonium3d is not vaporware. Zoltan posted a video of the editor sometime ago, don't know why it was removed though.
