We developed an extended 3D time-dependent free-electron laser (3D time-dependent FEL) code to optimize the beam parameters in a free-electron laser oscillator. We optimized the beam parameters and the evolution of the temporal pulse in a 3-dimensional time-dependent free-electron laser oscillator by using the extended 3D time-dependent FEL code that we developed. The evolution of the temporal pulse was investigated for wiggler lengths of 0.5 m, 1.0 m, 1.5 m and 2.0 m, beam energies of 30 $\sim$ 50 MeV, beam currents of 30 $\sim$ 50 A and radiation wavelengths of 2.48 $\sim$ 2.65 $\mu$m. The gains or various radiation pulses were analyzed at various times from -1.0 $\mu$s to 1.0 $\mu$s for electron beams with energy spreads from 0.01 to 1.4%. In particular, the gain of the radiation pulse was optimized at -0.6 $\mu$s by using our newly developed extended 3D time-dependent FEL code.
