...so yea, simple billboards with text, and not even with FreeType, as I simply couldn't solve the access violation problem. The text is rendered using Pygame. But I'm going to get back to FreeType at some point, it should be easy to support both.
I just realized my current game project is probably going to take at least ten years to make if I would fully realize it... which, of course, I probably won't do, but I like the idea of a basically infinite design which I can work on for a looong time. [smile] Of course, I'm probably going to work on smaller project too at some point.
More to come about the game and the engine in the near future, I hope!
