A 3d game project needs people with 3d skills. Robert Sälg joined as the 3d artist for The Cord. He designed the first three-dimensional logo for Beau Monde. Tõnis Ormisson started as the level designer and Pertti Soomann signed up as a programmer.
In December 1999 the Beau Monde Open Source project was started. The idea was to support the Open Source community.
The canceled project 2075 AD was turned into Open Source and a totally new one - TAE (The Adventure Engine) was started. Alar Kvell and Martin Kapp worked on this new project. Information on both can be found in the projects section.
