#5011242 looking for a good free 3d game engine

You should keep in mind that Unity free is quite limited.

An alternative is jMonkeyEngine and MonoGame.

jMonkey is, however, a Java engine.

I'm a a programmer, and I can tell you what I would like to know if I were considering joining your project.

* What kind of game are you making? RPG? First person shooter? Turn based isometric strategy game?
* What level is your art-work at. Would I want to be associated with your art? I mean, if your art is on the level of pastel stick-figures, I probably wouldn't want to be in your project. So. Do you have a portfolio?
* What sort schedule do you have?
* Do you accept that art is code-driven, and that I would most likely come and tell you to change things for optimal performance? I mean, a single 200 frame animation might not be the most optimal thing, and I might need just 40 frames instead, and I might want you to squash your high polygon models into something manageable in code?
* What are you like as people?

What I'm getting at is that I would like you to tell me that you have a definite vision, that you have considered the work-flow, and most importantly that you are people I would like to work with for a prolonged period. It's not so much about code and languages, because as a coder that would be my responsibility. I am more interested to know if you have a realistic project that I too can enjoy and learn form, and I would like an incling as to the personal dynamics I would expect to face.

I hope that helps somewhat. Good luck in finding someone.

Monogame is free but on iOS and android requires the respective mono licenses (monodroid and monotouch) which are $399 per year EACH.

Unity Pro is $1500 for the Pro version, and you need that if you're doing professional work. Each of the other platforms cost an additional $400 I believe. All of these prices are per seat as well. But then again, if one wants to make money, one unfortunately have to spend money. And with the cost of time per seat, it's a couple of days work.
