AEgis Provides 3D Model Content for iPad Military Simulation Game


The AEgis Technologies Group provided 3D model content from their 3D Elements Model Library for the iPad Military Simulation game called ArmedForceHD. The game was released on August 21 by Airborne Games, LLC, and is currently being sold and distributed on iTunes. 3D Elements is a Real-Time Library of 3D models optimized for the simulation and training market. The models are also being used by analysts for homeland defense security applications. While this is not the first use of the models in a game environment, this is the first time the models have been used for an iPad game application. […]
