I would like to introduce myself. My name is Roslan and I'm from Malaysia. Despite my profile pic, I'm a male.
I have been programming for more than 30 years when I took the course "CS101 Introduction to FORTRAN Programming" (you can guess my age bracket,
). For the last 10 years my primary language is Java. I've been involved in large scale enterprise applications.
My dream has always been to write a 3D game in Java. After struggling with jME for a few months, I thought I would give Xith3D a go. I find that the API is cleaner and it has a working built-in HUD implementation which is easy to use.
What I'm working on is a remake of Master of Orion (the original game) in 3D. I know it's a very old game and not very exciting but the fun is in the programming and not the playing. The look and feel should be similar to the Civilization IV mod Final Frontier.
