Hi all, first post here. Forgive me for asking the age old question n all that but i really need some pointers.
First things first. Im not after making a game as such, I'm not a fan of MMO's nor am i expecting to make anything worthwhile for a looong time.
For a while now I've been toying around with the idea of just making a beleiveable environment. Day and night cycle, seasons, weather you know. I had been using the UDK and learning UnrealScript well enough to get by. After the news that UnrealScript was being dropped in UE4 and just my general thinking that an actual programming language will benefit me more, i decided to abandone my UDK project.
For a couple of months now I've been banging my head against a brick wall it seems as to what i should do. I keep thinking C++ C++ but everywhere says learn C# first and it will benefit you greatly in the future.
I was thinking of maybe trying out Ogre3d. But it looks a bit too in depth. Lack of a solid editor isnt encouraging either.
So i guess i just need to start simple? What would be a good platform to begin learning C#? Unity? Paradox? I don't know whats best.
I like to think i have a general knowledge of what needs to be done, but i think i just need some sound advice. Getting to that age where I've gotta f***** do something soon haha
Again, I'm sorry for asking questions that have been asked a million times but I'm desperate for help. I need some ideas.
Thanks in advance everyone. I appreciate any pointers any of you have to offer.
