I am kind of in a rock and a hardplace really at the moment. First and formost I think I should better explain what I am looking for and state that I really do not have the time to build this myself due to not really knowing the fine detail of putting together a basic rendering engine and not even having any experience in the D3D/OpenGL world so I am looking for an alternative.
I am working on a project which needs to be simulated. This is not a game project. Essentially I need to take a 3D model which has basic animations and I need to put it into a rendering engine. Once in the engine I need to be able to apply weights, directional, and thrust values to various peices of the model. Then I need to simulate various actions through some sort of scripting system.
Sorry the requirements are kind of specific but think of it like this. Say I need to simulate a rocket. I would need to be able to place the rocket in a scene and apply a weight value to it. Then I would need to apply thrust values to the engine and maybe environmental factors like wind speed and direction so I can simulate then observe and collect various peices of data like flight trajectory, height, speed, etc....
Anyone know of any engines out there which can be easily scripted or modefied to set this sort of stuff up? I can't really find any software out there as I do not quite know what to search for. So I figured I would ask the wonderful people here.
