Many people might know the small MMORPG runescape... If you don't its basicly a Java based MMORPG with 3d graphics(crappy nonetheless). Anyways I basicly want to know how they created them and what program did they use? I heard somewhere they use their own graphics engine, if so what does that mean? Sorry for all these stupid questions I'm a beginner at all this, I've only been using photoshop for about a month=/ I know this might not be the right place to ask a question like this but I thought you guys might be able to answer my *noob* questions. =) Thanks, Bahall

If you have to ask, go here.

Seriously, though... Don't start on an MMORPG.

Meaning that they built something like this or this, instead of purchasing one that was already made.

I guess I didn't really explain my post well enough... Basicly I just want to know whats a good program to create 3d graphics with Java, doesn't matter if they are crappy like runescapes.

And I never said I was creating a MMORPG, just wanted to know how they made their graphics.

This is a visual arts question so I think this the correct forum.

But thanks for the info on the graphics engine.

It isn't actually particularly important that the game is coded in Java as far as the graphics go (although that could have an influence over what file format you'd want your models in).

The graphics are created using some kind of 3d modelling software. The list linked by videodragon20032003 has a lot of those, you could check out some of the free ones if you'd like, or demos of the commercial products which have one.

After creation, the models are exported into a format which the game engine can load and use.
