GameMaker 3D speed has increased dramatically The next update will be bringing surfaces in 3D mode, and a change in the way models are drawn. There will be the option to make models static or dynamic. Static models can have transformations and translations applied to them, but that’s the only way they can be changed. Dynamic models can change over time. There are other smaller changes that have been made like improved anti-aliasing and the ability to turn d3d on and off in the middle of a draw function to put 2D images and text over the screen.
