A number of very talented individuals have created professional maps and mods to many popular 3D action games... They have two big problems: they are working within systems that were only meant to be extended as far as the original design needed; and they can't sell their creations.Though we have yet to see what dimension3 can do, we're excited to see a new
The system is designed to be a rapid-application environment, with a powerful map editor that allows you to create complex maps quickly. Everything in the maps are uniquely tagged, from the polygon segments to ambient sound effects, and can be altered from scripts.
The best part: The development kit is free to everybody. If you don't charge for your creations, then it's completely free. If you sell it, then we'll discuss a small, no-risk %: probably 5%-10% (most likely 5%) on your sales. There is no up-front fee. Other deals can be reached!
Later releases will be to the general public, but for the initial testing phase, we'd like to gather a group of testers who have made maps or mods before. If this is something you'd like to test/use, send me email at firstname.lastname@example.org, giving me a site where I can see what work you've done before. Companies are welcome! The current builds run in OS X PB only, but will appear for other systems when it's closer to release. The first release will happen in roughly 2-3 weeks. Together, we can make this one of the "killer" OS X applications Apple is looking for!
