CRYENGINE 3.6.6. Released and Available

The CryEngine 3.6.6. has been released and is available to all subscribers.

Here are key notes (you can read the full notes here):

FBX Improvements and Refinements:

One of the most popular additions in 3.6.5 was the FBX Import Dialog, which represents our first step towards true FBX support further down the road. You have sent us a lot of feedback on this first implementation, some of which is reflected in today’s fixes and improvements. As previously said, this is the first part of a larger project that you will see evolve over time with future releases.Audio fixes and improvements

On the Audio side of things, we have adjusted several visual aspects of the ACB, such as new icons, layouts as well as general functionality to make the ACB more powerful and more comfortable to use. Beyond this quality of life improvements, a new AudioAreaAmbience entity will also help to improve working with ambiance audio areas.New Assets

As with previous builds, we have used the release of 3.6.6 to add some more work-in-progress assets to the engine (and as always, you are free to use them in your own projects). These include some new weapon scopes and character attachments, with more to come in the future. read more
