1  Games Center / Java Technology Game Development Contest - 2004 / Re: Which game idea should I go with? on: 2004-03-30 23:37:53
#1 gets my vote.

#2 sounds a little bland, but then I've always liked tactical games.

If you do go with #2, you've still got to keep all the players in the same room to keep it interesting....do you shoot the monster that's attacking player 2 to get the points, or do you let it munch on him for a bit?

2  Java Game APIs & Engines / Tools Discussion / Re: What 3D modeling/rendering packages are you us on: 2003-10-02 17:18:00
I've been doing some research on 3D modeling programs lately and this is the list I've come up with. I'm sure it is incompelete and you may can probably find better pricing on some of them. Opinions vary on all of them with everyone having different favorites. Most of them have free versions or demos and I suggest you try the ones you are interested in and find what's right for you. Please feel free to add to this list. All prices are US dollars.
