Social recommendations and mentions

We have tracked the following product recommendations or mentions on various public social media platforms and blogs. They can help you see what people think about Urho3D and what they use it for.
  • Godot support for 3D is too primitive, and Unity has become a wild mess over the years. Is Unreal Engine the only remaining option for 3D projects?
    You might give rbfx a look. It is an actively developed fork of Urho3D that has pretty decent, and actively developed, 3D rendering. Source: about 3 years ago
  • Best library for 3D development that doesn't require GLFW/GLAD etc
    You might give rbfx a try. It's a fork of Urho3D which is also good, though aging. While they do verge into engine territory, they're not editor-based as Unity and Godot are, and in fact the editors for each are quite rudimentary and unfinished. For a programming-centric workflow, they're pretty nice. Source: about 3 years ago
  • C++ 3D Graphics Frameworks / Game Frameworks ?
    Urho3D is a C++ engine that provides rendering (D3D, OpenGL, WebGL) as well as numerous other capabilities. Works on many platforms. Has and editor, but it is not central to the process and isn't really complete anyway. Source: over 3 years ago
  • C++ 2D/3D Engine
    Urho3D or its recent fork rbfx are good choices. Numerous supported platforms, 2D and 3D, scripting with AngelScript or Lua if desired, etc. Source: over 3 years ago
  • Workflows, Artisans, Manufactories and Inflation
    It's coded in C++, Urho3D is used to display graphics and sounds. Source: over 3 years ago
