I hope to start creating a mini game that uses 3D graphics, for my final year project. This would be my first attempt, and I would to know what exactly would I need to create the polygon models. To be more specific - is there any special software that I need other than a C compiler? Any replies would be appreciated. Thanx.

That depends on what you want to use.

You''ll need a DirectX SDK if you want to use DX, but I''d recommend you look at NeHe''s openGL tutorials right here on GameDev.

To write OpenGL apps, you need the ogl libs and headers. The headers should come with most C compilers nowadays, amd the libs are shipped with Win98.

Get NeHe''s tutorials first, then come back if you can''t complie them.
