Early Access Software

Get involved with this software as it develops.

Note: This Early Access software is not complete and may or may not change further. If you are not excited to use this software in its current state, then you should wait to see if it progresses further in development. Learn more

What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We're building a universal modding tool. It's a gargantuan task. We'll be in Early Access while we solidify import/export with more games and develop relationships with game studios.”

Approximately how long will this software be in Early Access?

“Six months to a year.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“Most notably it will support more games, but it will also likely no longer be free.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“We feel like 3dSunshine is an incredibly robust creative tool for Vive. We're always looking to improve performance, and of course, striving to add more games, but it's very solid.”

Will this software be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“We are hoping, at some point, to be able to eat in our pursuit of gaming greatness. This means that 3dSunshine may not always be free or may have paid aspects in the future.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“User feedback is the heart and soul of our project. We'll pay close attention to your feature requests and bug reports to make sure that every new build better serves our community's needs.”

Lost in the Metaverse

Hi All,

As you may have noticed we haven't updated 3dSunshine in quite sometime. We've been working on other projects because 3dSunshine is free, and nerds have to eat too. While we are psyched that a lot of people are interested in using 3dSunshine with their mixed reality headsets, we don't have any immediate plans to support this. Although it might be possible to change our minds. If you'd like us to support you device you can post an emotional plea here.

We haven't drawn the curtain on 3dSunshine just yet. We're just not sure there is enough of a community to justify the tremendous amount of work a complex program like this takes.

Thanks for your support,

About This Software

We're building the future of gaming. 3dSunshine utilizes the cutting edge technology of the HTC Vive and Oculus Touch to allow gamers to change and shape their favorite game worlds. We take your Minecraft world to the next level by taking the math out of big builds. Now building massive space ships for Space engineers is as simple as a flick of the wrist. With our intuitive toolset you can free-build gigantic structures in no time flat. And we're not stopping with Minecraft and Space Engineers.

The future of 3dSunshine is expansive. Soon, the only limitations video games will have is the imagination of the massive collective of gamers who edit them.


Do you need to have Minecraft installed to use 3dSunshine?
Nope! You only need to have Minecraft if you'd like to export your builds to Minecraft. Which you should, because it's awesome and Minecraft is awesome. Go get it!

Can I use Vivecraft with 3dSunshine?

Can you use Windows 10 Minecraft with 3dSunshine?
Sadly, no. We're only compatible with Java Minecraft, this might change if Microsoft develops a tool to convert Java world files to Windows 10 world files.

What game are you planning to support next?
We're not sure! If you have a request for a game you'd like to see supported let us know on the forum. If you're a developer who would like to see your game supported email us at info@3dsunhsine.com

Is GTA 5 coming to 3dSunshine?
We added some limited GTA 5 support to 3dSunshine, but it's unlikely that we'll release it to the public. Why? Because it requires the user's GTA 5 game to be heavily modded and we think it's somewhat overly complicated for our users.
