I can only see some trivial 2D samples which are of little interest. Where are some more meaty examples such as 3D etc?

The 3D code is more or less brand new; Up until now the focus has been upon polishing the 2D side of things.

We do have some prototypes demonstrating 3D on multiple platforms (for example Creepy Towers) but it's the focus of the coming months to bring it to maturity - which will include plenty of tutorials and samples.

I suggest putting this information in the features section as there is little to suggest where delta engine is ATM.

Thanks for the info, PG.

I'd second that. Just stumbled upon this nice Engine concept yesterday. Definitely, something to try and play with. But uh, after some installing and reading, I realized that there is no "Entity3D" - yet.

I mean, it certainly isn't a problem to wait, watch and see DE evolve - but it could be more clearly stated that 3D is in the works and would be available around [put date of your choice here]...

Thanks,

Sorry about that, it is a bit confusing because we have been working on 3D features for the last 5-6 months, but they are only included in beta and nightly releases. "Someone" wanted us to only put stable 2D features into the v1.0 release ^^

You can download the nightly release, which has full 3D support. We will update the Download page first thing next week and also bring back many pages on the website describing 3D features (tutorials, content, shaders, advanced rendering topics, etc.)

As of now think of Delta Engine as a 2D engine, in January 2014 you can think of it as a 2D and 3D engine with many more examples.

Ah, nice. So, the 3D features are a lot more imminent than I'd thought, actually. Cool thing.
Thanks for the pointer to the nightly - I see there is Entity3D and whatnot else in there - enough to fiddle around with for the time being, I guess. ThumpUp

I am guessing you are planning to (eventually) compete with Unity?
