    The best software to make a mmorpg?

    http://www.microsoft...xpress/Windows/ Knock yourself out. (Allthough seriously, if you have to ask that question Realm Crafter is the best software out there at your skill level) (Blender is still a great tool to make your graphics in btw) [/quote] well then what do think is better blender or unity3d in making a rpg type game
  14. The best software to make a mmorpg? what is the best software to make a mmorpg with good graphics (NOT realm crafter!!) and i does not have to come with a server because i can set that up myself. well pretty much the best software to make a rpg because i have try to use unity3d and blender but they arnt ment for anythink like that. thanks -josh
