The sad thing about artificial intelligence is that it lacks artifice and therefore intelligence.

More personal opinion than actual fact. I prefer R3D to TV3D.

MS is using R3D to show off VB.NET, so in your faces TV3D users.

Both engines are good, but documentation in my opinion is better for TV3D than for R3D. Microsoft may be using R3D and R3D is a good engine but I prefer TV3D

Ok just to let you decide which one is better, here is two pages that show the features for both. TV3D supports alot more file formats and adds features like AI pathfinding, better terrain functions, transitions, and game file packages (PAK files). Go ahead and check it out

There ya go

I wont even bother to go through my full lst of reasons that I chose R3D over TV3D, but here''s the gist of it:

TV3D is somewhat non-uniform. I have used it quite a lot, and i sometimes get the feeling that all the devs are not quit on the same page. R3D only has one programmer, so it is very uniform in structure.

Second, I like R3D''s interface better. Just my personal prefs.

Lastly, I have found that
1)A lot of the stuff that TV3D codes is not very generic and that I can write my own quite easily.
2) R3D code is generally far more sound because of a close community which works together to pound bugs with a sledgehammer.

But if you like TV3D, i dont care. Many ppl like TV3D, many like R3D. We''re about to get decent network support at least(needed it badly), plus the MDL and MD2/MD3 systems are finally being rewritten properly.
