I just bought the book, "3D Games: Real Time Rendering and Software Technology Vol I" and it comes with a CD that has the Fly3D SDK. Is this engine any good?

I downloaded it probly about 6+ months ago.
I thought it was really nice.
I only played with it for a few days though.

If it can ease the development of your desired project, then it is ''good''. If it can not, then it is not good. Not to be banal but even the most horribly inefficiently written engine is "good" if it helps your development. Try the engine and determine if it is good or not by yourself.

Fly3D is by no means a "bad" engine... However, I really don''t think it''s very practical for any commercial products (but, then again, I''m of the mind that no 3rd party engine is practical for a commercial product). That said, the engine can function as a great learning tool, it uses some practices that I think should be used by a lot of programmers (ie. things that I feel are fundamental to engine design, and believe others should follow the same philosophy).
