Hi guys, Im developing an online-course in spanish for an educational institution (private, semi-commercial - i.e. no profit, but still fees for salaries etc.), and would like to include a virtual chatt-room in 3D for the students. Do you know of any free-license game-engines that fullfills the following criteria: - Cross-platform (preferably OpenGL or something). - Multiplay - ca: 50 people - Chatt-function (click on someone/group and chatt) - Easily skinned avatars - Easy to build maps (Im just going for a simple café-look) Nothing fancy. Thanks.

If you need true portability id program it in java... thought i dont know of any graphics libraries for it, im sure they are there... in fact ive looked at a few posts here about them... google for them and you should find plenty, now the portability issue pisses me off, because ppl always go "open-gl is protable" and then you ask them what their target platform is, and its windows x86, exclusively... thus taking a lot out of their portability arguement, now the ease of use arguement still stands, many people much prefer the syntax of opengl over directx''s i personally prefer directx''s, dunno y, i just do... i kinda tried to sum up the flame war between d3d and ogl(open gl) for you right there... hope u can make ur own choice from that...
( i know i rambled )

Thats a good idea - using Java, and build some sort of 3D applet for chatting. Ive heard about OpenGL-java (something like that), but never investigated it further. Well, its prime time

Thanks again, Dan.

If anybody else has other suggestions, please post them too.
