These look nice so far, I'm curious if you can make Star Trek-like designs with this (saucers, nacelles, etc).

I've never made skins before but I got the general concept.
How do I preview an FBX model with the skin file? Is there a light app that's easy to use to do this? Anyone have any tips or notes?
I'm looking to see what game makers are out there (for PC platforms). I like discovering new software but it's often complicated by the moe generic terms. For this purpose, I'm talking about apps that let someone make a game, usually of a specific genre, in order to help them make a game for release and am trying not to include apps that let you create content but only for use in said app (although that info is also welcome but less useful). For example, looking for RPG maker and not for Godot, game maker studio, unity, or unreal. The game makers I'm aware of already include:

I don't know much about Cube2/Tesseract but it's not very customizable without programming is it? I can script, sure, but I'm not a game programmer. My hope with eFPSe is I could create retro games pretty easily. I like a lot of its flexibility (room over room, true 3D spaces, no code weapons and enemies, built in custom object editor for angled walls, etc) but it's oddly restrictive in some areas (importing models, no ability to create secrets built-in, doors can only be on tiles with nothing on layers above or below it)
I have a need to convert models into MD3 format; I am currently using Kenney's Asset Forge and it does not export to MD3.
I don't really want to start downloading random converter apps online and the online converters only support MD3 -> other formats.
Anyone know of a reputable way to convert OBJ or FBX to MD3? Thanks.
Interesting. Yeah I found a FBX -> MD3 converter online yesterday and I'll have to try it as a destructible 3D decoration at some point to see how well it works. Otherwise I could just hide items behind destructible 2D decorations. A destructible tile would've been a more elegant solution though. Nice art btw. Right now I'm trying to figure out how weapons work and figuring out the art aspects of them.
NM, it's a bust, it only converts MD3s to FBX or OBJ. I don't really want to deal with Misfit or MilkShape.
I'm trying to start off with a simple weapon.
It's a wand that has two graphics, an idle state and a fire state, with infinite ammo and no reloading.
The weapon has max ammo 0, mag ammo 0, damage 10, fire rate 1, bullets 1, reload 1, projectile 512, explosion 0, recoil 1, spread 0, recoil recovery speed 0, ammo in box 0, checked users projectiles, set the idle frame, the fire 0, and fire 1 frames, used a blank image for the projectile and projectile death (again just for testing)--and have it when map starts.
However when I press fire--nothing happens. My test enemy doesn't take damage and the sprites don't change/animate.
I could see great potential for isometric games if your character creator did the backs of the characters in the same 3/4 view. It would be great since it would show unit facing without any special indicators.
Would you ever consider picking up this engine or a making a similar engine but support multi-player support? It would be fun to run cooperative campaigns.
Regardless, I enjoy using the editor, it's a very fun program!
For me, I want something like game maker studio, but with 3d and 2d game support, no drag and drop but code but with a lot of premade functions for common game problems and genres, automated memory management, being able to use zips as resource packs (mount, read, write etc), but no unnecessary components like sprite editors or draw programs (there are better 3rd party apps, I'd rather have the ide focus on easier coding for beginners). Lots of tutorials and templates. Keeping the core of something like GMS, sprites, objects, textures/backgrounds/graphics, sounds/music, rooms with layers, model and animation support (fbx, obj). It has to look nice and be performant. It doesn't have to be an unreal or unity killer. Maybe use a suite of preexisting apps--tiled for various components but optimized to work together
