In this year's Open Source Awards, hosted by PacktPub, a new category called "Open Source Graphics Software" was added. jMonkeyEngine is the first ever strictly game oriented software to make it as a finalist in this contest.

This a great opportunity to promote Java as a fully capable 3D programming language.

Got 5 seconds?



Got a couple more? Please help us spread the word any way you can.

Seems like beating Blender is going to be a very tall order, if only because Blender has a massive and loyal community.

Yeah, to be honest both Blender and GIMP are in a different league than us right now. Granted, this whole category was a little whacked to being with Cheesy I reckon they'll re-define it for next year, if they're sticking to it, as this site is after all geared mainly at web developers, and so was this award.

We'd be thrilled to snatch the 3rd place regardless Smiley

Both Blender and GIMP 2 is great pieces of software. They should be hard to beat..

Thanks a bunch for your support guys! Keep telling all your friends and their dog to put their vote in.

Say Mads, that's a nice blog you have there. Could you by any chance consider making a quick mention about the contest there? Smiley Link-ins from external sources really helps our page rank, and seeing as the new .org domain is still in its infancy it could really use a couple trackbacks right about now. If you don't think it fits in with direction you're going with your blog though, don't bother, no worries  Cool

I voted! But as others have said, Blender (and GIMP, to some extent) has a massive community willing to vote for it.

I've voted for JMonkeyEngine too even though Scribus is a good alternative to Adobe InDesign (Adobe is a member of the Business Software Alliance that defends the principle of software patents). I like Blender and Gimp too.

First off, big cheers to you Mads for taking me up on my somewhat brash request  Grin

Keep up the votes and replies guys, it's very encouraging to see the Java community chipping in like this.

After seeing the Sintel movie yesterday I almost felt like changing my vote  Kiss The Blender guys are doing great things, and the jMonkeyEngine project is certainly benefiting from their hard efforts. We're just happy to be "up there" in a category together with them.

Sorry, I voted for Blender. Even though it's interface is not very good, it is still an extremely competent program AND there are very good documentation.

Gimp also have a stupid interface and it is miles behind PS. I like krita better.

Scribus is simply crap, it doesn't even have kerning. I could just as well use word open office directly.

JME, although cool, lacks some in documentation compared to blender.

Inkscape is good and very useful. But it is not very cool and for work I am almost always just as happy with gliffy. Smiley

He he, no hard feelings. If you see my previous reply you'll see I've played with the idea myself ^^ Often times when we've been working on some overall project improvements, we've looked to Blender as the de-facto "open source software project" template. They're far from perfect, not that its commercial counterparts are, but they do a lot of things really well.

In my line of thinking though, jMonkeyEngine is the underdog-extreme in this contest, and we have a lot more to gain from this than Blender, so I'll honestly admit I won't let my pride get in the way of a couple sympathy votes  Cool

Huh? Are you referring to this thread being placed in the wrong board, or are you asking for some showcase of jME? If the former, I suppose here is okay seeing as two moderators seem okay with it. If the latter, jmonkeyengine.com would be the place to check out Wink
