3d Game Engines

Recommended Posts

I need help deciding which one to pick and stick to and start development on or at least learn it really well. I have tried all these engines: 1. Crystal Space 2. Reality Factory 3. Ogre 4. Auran Jet 5. Genesis 3d 6. Fly 3d 7. 3d Game Studio (Sucks) 8. Fat Kiss 9. Rad Labs None of them has a complete package. Auran doesnt have a terrain engine , Ogre doesnt have a terrain or physics engine, Most of them dont have world builders where levels can be desinged with. I really dont want to sell my house and buy a quake 3 game engine at least not right now. Can anyone please give me a Suggestion of a game engine which has everyhting and has lots of tools and is easy to use yet with lots of features. I have been to those 3d game engine list websites where game engines are listed but they dont help. I really would appericiate this. I have stopped learning programming because I want to learn what I am going to use.

Realistically, there is no engine out there that you will not have to do a lot of programming for in order to make the game you want to make. Pretty much any of these would be a good choice for you.

Now, stop. Quit trying to pick an engine, and concentrate on learning programming. Pretty much all of those engines are written in C++, so that''s what you should concentrate on. Once you''ve gotten proficient in C++, and made some small games yourself, THEN revisit the question of a game engine.


Don''t listen to me. I''ve had too much coffee.

As far as I know there is no such free game development package. You''re going to have to mix and match libraries, maybe write some of your own tools or write importers/exporters for existing tools like Milkshape.

Basically, you''re asking a bit much if you want a professional quality game development kit for free.

If you want a Visual Basic package you can try TrueVision3D, its next release (which is coming VERY soon according to the developers) well contain the editors you want and all of the Engines (3D, Input, Sound, AI, Video)
