Are there any good free/inexpensive ones?
Never mind, decided to use Spring. Lock please, or use this as a topic for discussion of RTS engines.

Hmmm, FIFE can be good, if you like 2D graphics, but I didn't examine it.

http://wiki.fifengine.de/

It's more RPG (Fallout-like) engine, but looking at the game Unknown Horizons, it can be used as a strategy/RTS one. ;-)

There ain't good 3D RTS engines, but there are a lot of engines which can be ported to RTS purposes. :-)

Did you even look at Spring? It's a free, open source, 3D RTS engine that is quite capable.

Also 0.A.D. Has an engine built from the ground up for the game but it is not ready yet but they have made great progress with it.

Graphics are important, too. But graphics without good RTS options/abilities already implemented are nothing... there are loads of beautiful & completely free (not RTS suited) 3D engines out there. Few 3D RTS engines. The same with free isometric RTS engines. = / Very rare.


@Longleaf, you're right, I'm personally waiting for this one. :-)
But it isn't released... I'd help its devs, but I have no skills whatsoever, only I'm in the progress of acquiring them... and such aid requires practice too, not just raw knowledge and understanding.

Have you seen the screenshots from Spring? They're great, and show good gameplay.

Hmm, O.o, I looked at more screenshots now. In fact, it's a decent engine... but probably I'll use 0 A.D. engine in future. ;-) What game do you plan to make, what theme? Sci-fi or modern, or mediaeval?

A sci-fi with modern elements.
