Realm Crafter Community Edition © 2015 Ryde Software

Realm Crafter Community Edition is an all-in-one out of the box MMO game engine. It requires no programming and is directed toward independent game developers. The Engine comes with a Grand Unified Editor (GUE), one application to build your entire game and with various other programs such as, Terrain Editor, Font Generator, Gubbins Tool, Scripts Editor and many more. The license includes access to the source code and the chance to help with the future development of RCCE.


SolStar abandoned Realm Crafter in early 2012, and the community started to disband and move on. After a year of no news the remaining members of the community came together and rebuilt the engine, RCCE was born.

RCCE was released in early 2014 developed by Ryde Software. It was made purely for the benefit remaining community members so that they had an engine that wasn't filled with bugs. In late 2014 Ryde Software and Gajatix Software teamed up along with some community members to rebuild the engine and push it to it's limits. On April 2nd 2015 RCCE2 was released. RCCE2 was the next step for the community engine, with a new code structure and superior graphics to all previous versions. It is Faster, More Powerful, Easier to Use, More Customisable and More Professional.

Platform Versions


RCCE was the first version of the Community Engine developed by Ryde Software. It's primarypurpose was to give what remained of the Realm Crafter community an engine that wasn't filled with bugs. Other than a few new features and several bug fixes, not much difference between RCCE and RCS can be found. This version was the starting point for the entire RCCE project. RCCE was eventually discontinued and replaced by the RCCE_FE project.


After the release of RCCE some of the community members came together and wanted to push theengine a little further. RCCE_FE was built as a visual upgrade to RCCE, introducing new post processing effects to create beautiful and far more superior graphics while fixing some further bugs in the engine. After several updates to this platform, although the graphical capabilities were much improved the engine was becoming a lot more unstable and was eventually discontinued.


It was decided that the only way to create the engine that everyone wanted was to start again. Development for RCCE2 was handed to Gajatix Software, which rebuilt the RCCE engine on their OverSeer Platform. In doing so, the engine was able to render to a quality even better than RCCE_FE and have hardly any of the bugs or issues that previous versions had. RCCE2 is the latest version of the Community Engine and is still being developed by Gajatix Software.

Zone Editor
Watch a time lapse: Youtube.com

The zones editor is similar to that of a WYSIWYG system without all the post-processing effects. It requires no programming to use as you simply drag and drop your models in the scene. When working on your MMO this is where you will be spending most of your time, designing environments, adjusting weather controls, setting up lighting, collisions fields etc. The only limit is your imagination.

Particle Editor
The particle editors will allow you to create all the special effects for your game, for example, fire. These can then be added into your game world directly from the zones editor or can be run via script to be used when casting a spell for instance. Using lots of different behavioural settings and force settings there is no limit to what effects can be created in this editor.

Interface Editor
You can select different parts of the interface and change their location and scale on the screen in game without the need of any programming, saving lots of time. There are also additional settings which allow you to adjust the colour and transparency of each module for even more control.

RCCE2 rendering engine utilises post processing techniques to create beautiful emersive results. Techniques such as, Volumetric Light, Bloom, Dynamic Shadows, Water Refraction, Bump Mapping, Depth of Field and Dynamic Lighting with Specular Mapping and Cube Mapping in development. Aside from the visual effects, the engine automatically sharpens all textures rendered, removing any blurry patches and making everything look a lot more realistic

Sound Engine
The sound engine in RCCE2 is still early in it's development stages but works efficiently and to a good standard. Apart from music played in the client, RCCE2 also has a 3D sound engine, meaning the volume and panning of a sound played in game gets adjusted depending on the players location to the source if the developer specifies it to behave like that.

- Sun's no longer render if the zone isn't marked as outdoors.

Why does it say open source on your website and when you click the link its a pay to use product? That's false advertising!

Not at all. Source Code is available for all versions of the engine to anyone who has purchased a license.

Please read what the website says again.


"Our software is made as open source as we can get it, once purchased you are given all the source we have made available with your download. If our engine is too limiting for your needs you can fire up the source and customize it to your hearts desire."
