On second thought... probably not

At this point, it seems best NOT to resume Jet3D development. I recently contacted several of the former Jet3D contributors to ask them what their opinion was about renewed efforts. Everyone agreed that it is probably best not to exert energy trying to improve Jet3D.

Their remarks are consistent with my own assessment of Jet3D, the engine and the editor. The foundations are laid out in ways that make it extremely difficult to improve.

Jet3D Development to be Resumed

I am happy to announce the resumption of Jet3D development. After more than a year and a half in torpor, organized work on the engine will continue, building on the hard work of previous contributors.

If you have worked on this project before, please email me at...

And as soon as I can work out the administrative details, will rejoin the webwaves. More later...

Project on Hold

Unfortunately, the Jet3D project has been put on hold for now. Hootie has taken over the project and decided to instead revamp the older Genesis3D
engine and call it "Genesis3D Classic". In a few months he's planning to start work on Jet3D again.
If you read through the Jet3D/Genesis3D forums (particularly the announcements sections) at and, you'll get a better picture of where things stand. My suggestion to you is either use Genesis3D Classic and follow the upgrade path to Jet3D when they make one, or look into using an alternative 3D
engine. Whichever you choose, you should read the forums on those pages if you want to keep up with engine developments.
