Do not buy this as a substitute for bonafide home design software, which runs from 50 - 100 dollars, and probably (and hopefully) has about 5 to 10 times the amount of functionality this budget software has.

HD3d lacks a lot of simple stuff: ability to lock placed objects/walls/plots, ability to make multiple levels, ability to export plans, not to mention some inherant bugginess.

That being said, despite the mixed reviews, I figured 1.50 USD was worth it at least just to have a program I didn't have to open in a browser. I assume everything is to scale, so there is some basic merit to planning out your dream home - especially if you are nowhere near the stages of building it. While THE SIMS has the monopoly on furnishings and whatnot, you can get a basic idea of dimensions, measurements and by the time you're ready to splurge on actual design software, you should have a good handle on both your ideas and how to operate the program.

The program is simple, honestly too simple to use for my tastes, keeping menus and text to a minimum and having de/selection based around double clicking. Fine for 2D design, but when your software has a complex component like 3D building, your interface should keep up with the change in complications.

Bottom line - Not worth the 10 bucks it usually goes for. I'd say max I'd pay is 5 bucks, for a decent conduit for brainstorming what to build down the line.

I like that program. As for me - it's great for creating concepts of floors when you are creating a project of building. Easy to use, useful, low price.

I just can't recommend this. There is no practical use for this other than fun. I wasn't expecting a professional CAD suite but I was expecting something that could be used for DIY purposes. This is no more than a game. I would go as far as saying that the Home Builder in Sims 3 is far better (and the graphics are better too!).

Cons are:
- No manual dims entry, especially from internal dimensions!
- Cannot add a second flooor (should be called "Room Planner")
- Cannot use for planning lofts
- The 3D renders seem low-res and the texture quality is poor
- Very small gallary of fittings and stair cases
- When modifying a wall, arrows are displayed in the centre of the wall. These obstructs the dimensions of the room.

Got this game on sale, I think. I havent used it for months, now I would like to start building a dream house or planning the house I'm in so I could show my wife what we could do... Well it crashes as soon as it opens and I cant do anything. I've checked integrity and uninstalled and re-installed. Still not working. It looks like something like this has been going on since April... >:(

Unfortunately at the time of writing this review I can't recommend this product. There is no option to export your creations to any file format. The developers of this software have also said they have no plans to implement any kind of exporting functionality which renders this product completely unusable for anything apart from just designing interiors just for 'fun'.

I will happily change my review if exporting functionality is ever added but until then the only thing I can say about this product is that it is completely useless.

Right ... since this program actually lists itself under the games section and the developers blatantly refuse to move it to the programs section despite repeated request, I'll rate this program as a game.

This has got to be one of the most boring games in existence. I've walked through the same rooms forever and there has not been one single enemy spawn yet. No monsters! No terrorists! No goblins that want to nibble at your toes. No hot alien vixens with rocket launchers. Not even a spider or rat to stomp on ...

The lack of enemies to fight is luckily not too bad, because it conveniently hides one of the other drawbacks of the game: the game balance is completely out of the window. I have not found any guns ... ever! What if a dinosaur with an AK47 where to appear all of a sudden? I would be dead in a second. The player is just way too underpowered and the difficulty level is completely over the top. Seriously, this game really needs a balancing pass.

The game does not even explain you anything. How the hell do I finish the first level? They could at least include a tutorial or a readme.txt file.

Also, the level design is pretty boring. No stairs, no elevators ... everything is placed on the same level. It feels like I'm thrown back 30 years in time and playing Catacombs-3D or one of the other early FPS.

As a matter of fact, the game requires you to design your own levels before you can even play. If I pay for a game I expect something that I can play out of the box. It's not even like Terraria where you get a basic level that serves as a sandbox, no, the game literally gives you emptiness and you have to start from scratch! How lazy can a game developer get?

Then there is the engine: while it at least runs fluidly, the engine is otherwise pretty poor. Graphics are only so-so and there are basically zero special effects. Volumetric lighting? Nope. Bump mapping? Nope. Any form of AA? Nope. AF? Nope. Blur? Nope. Bloom? Nope. HDR? Nope. Again, it feels like I'm playing something from the very early nineties. Even Doom had flashing lights, this game has nothing. Not even a nice parallax skybox.

Sound? Music? Forget about all that.

My conclusion is that this is an early tech-demo of an FPS in alpha status. At least the developer releases updates once in a while, so maybe it will one day be playable but in its current state it is NOT worth full price … or any price. Why is this not marked as an early access game????

IGN: 9/10 game of the year material.
Kotaku: 7/10 great but not pixelated enough.
TotalBiscuit: I will spend the next 150 minutes explaining why it has its charm.
Angry Joe: I'm not reviewing it but will put it in my top 10 list at the end of the year anyway.
Everyone else: 0/10 avoid at all costs.

There is a few things that it doase not tell you before you download the "game". First and foremost, there is no way to add a additional stories to home. There is also no reasonable way to depict landscaping or represent basic household needs, like pipes or are flow. Thus what this actually is, is a home furnishing game, provided that your home is one story. Given that, there is a only a few dozen options for furniture and flooring and what not. So the verdict is... borderline worthless.

A lot of functionality for a low price.

- In 30 minutes I was able to make a fairly faithful recreation of my living room
- 30 minutes later I had imagined an extension to the living room and bought some new furniture
- Switched to first person mode and walked around the extension, showing my wife what it could look like.

- Now I have to build an extension and buy new furniture.

First off, this review has been updated due to comments (see comments section for more on that)

Do I recommend this program? Yes and no. Read on for more info.

Since they don't show you a full-screen screenshot, you can't see how badly the texture qualities are. Many of the textures go onto surfaces wrong and you can't correct it either. If you're thinking of buying this for fun, then you're probably better off just buying the Sims.

Update: If you are buying it for fun (as opposed to professional reference and useage) then you would be better off to buy the game I mentioned. There are other tools like this one out there that you can get for free and this one in particular is also available on iOS and Android from what I've read.

There is no denying the tools usefulness, but better textures and more customization items would be good too. But that's me being picky.

Can you lay out a room plan with this product?
You can work to accurate measurements based on your room. The tool does what it's for, but it could have been improved upon.

There are 10 items in Home Design 3D which are unlocked via liking the Dev's Facebook page.

And since a commenter asked me to suggest any other programs that do the same or better, there is a program called Sweethome 3D. It's the only one I recall the name of right now, but there are android apps and according to one of the other reviews here, Home Design 3D here is a port from that app. Wether it costs on the appstore or not I can't tell you, but if you Google for home design or interior design apps, a few recommended apps come up above the rest of the results.

If you're willing to do a few Googles or search the Android and Apple App stores, you'll come across programs much like this and save yourself some money.

This program has some potential to be a good interior design tool, but it is not very user-friendly. Here are some missing features:
- No simple vector drawings - every wall has to have a non-zero thickenss, which makes drawing a flat based on interior measurements a nightmare.
- There can't be rooms within rooms - it's not allowed
- No multi-select
- Cannot manually punch in the length of a wall

I also encountered a glaring bug 5 minutes into using the program: For whatever reason, the program will try to drag me to the edge of the drawing board. The only solution is to close the program and re-open.

I might as well use Paint.NET to draw my flat.

Note: I didn't spend 8 hours on this program. I simply have it minimized for 7.5 hours.

Edit: This program has a functionality to split walls under "Create a new angle" option. This can help with creating more complex rooms. The developers also seem pretty active in addressing concerns for now. I am willing to withdraw this negative review if the program improves substantially after a few patches.

Bought this as I'm purchasing a house, I was able to recreate the floor plan that I have in front of me quick and easily.

Being able to get a rough visualisation is more than enough for me. Would recommend.

It's alright. I got it for around $7 and used it to design the apartment I'm moving in to next month.

It could use more assets. The UI could also use improvement.

Here is my review and gameplay video:
In the video I show how to make a room, by placing the walls, window, door, furniture, painting, I quickly show all of the furniture that the software has. I speak about iOS version and the port that this one is, that is much simplified.
But overall would I recommend this software? I got it on promotion for $6, which is almost 2 hamburgers and it does a good job at replicating my room, but overall:

-Has most things that will populate the house
-Easy to learn
-Does the job

-The graphics remind of Counter-Strike, although there are some good looking textures
-The full version is made for iOS, this is a really simplified and dumbed down version
-You cannot make multi-store buildings, cannot make second floor
-Do not have garden objects like pool, plants, bushes, trees
-Cannot adjust the size vertically (height) of everything except the walls
-Cannot import your own textures like in the full version

Overall as I said I am content with what it does, but I was and still am reallly disappointed when I found out the full version that costs $10 has so much much more, and its only for iOS, I hope they update this software.
