Something the people on the Croquet side should check out is the content
creation tools in SecondLife (www.secondlife.,com)

The 3D world has a built-in, in-world 3D modeler, and it is extremely
functional and usable. It uses a limited form of constructive solid
geometry, but the general editing concepts are applicable to any type of

The 3D editor I wrote for the game Descent back in the mid-90's (in
Smalltalk, of course -- http://www.huv.com/smalltalk/desedit.html) used the
same kind of 3D perspective view only editing, with a camera that could
