3D Engine: 3Dream
Group DescriptionGames using the 3Dream engine developed by the internal R&D team within Digital Image Design Ltd. (DID).
Its internal codename was 'Hovis' as a humourous reference to being better bred. Although written primarily in 'C' with some assembly, it was designed using object-oriented techniques. It's graphics technologies enabled innovative features on Katmai (aka Pentium III) on Wargasm. These included real-time dynamic environment mapping on the water, cloth-modelling on camo nets, and a volumetric particle effect system. As well as running on PC, versions of the engine also ran on Nintendo 64.
3Dream continued to be innovated past the demise of DID as part of the selling off of DID to Rage Software plc by Infogrames.
