    I wonder if this game engine can do something similar to CryEngine 2 or 3, in example, talking about the generated environments. It would be great to make an scenary in both engines and compare the results. I'm learning to use this engine (jME 3) because I have some ideas I would like to materialize, and I know Java enough to start with it, but I have no experience in Game development; that's why I would like to know if this engine can generate realistic environments as CryEngine (2 or 3), or if there are some limitations (about performance or something else) for that (excluding of course the quality of textures and models).

      It really comes down to the quality of your models and your scene composition skill. Nothing performance wise is gonna stop you from making a scene in jME3 that's as good looking a what you see in a CryEngine game, but those scenes usually took several thousand expert man hours to put together.

    This engine is the best thing for java game creation.
    but still its a bit buggy and the SDK's gui is super slow and buggy.
    so I'm using direct LWJGL.

      Did you try the RC1 release yet? There's been some major improvements in the SDK, including a big performance boost.
