SIO2 3D Engine

Has anyone had any experience with the SIO2 3D Engine?

I haven't had much experience in 3D but this engine looks pretty good.

Love this engine, highly recommend it. Wouldn't have jumped into 3D without it.

Works best with Blender, so you'll want to look into that tool or ask your Artist to!

It's a good engine. I had problems with music streaming which I couldn't fix. But, that was in some earlier version.

For me the biggest problem was Blender, because we are using 3dsmax to do all modeling. Besides that I can only recommend SIO2.

SIO2 is awesome

Really a great engine - nice tutorials and the forums are pretty active.

I like Blender so this is not a problem for me - on the contrary.

I used Blender like 5 y before and it is kinda like AWESOME to have an iPhone Engine built upon it. Now I just need to learn some XCode stuff ^^

Thanks

Thanks to everyone for the feedback.

I'm currently evaluating SIO2 and Unity3D.
