Hi all, I have the idea to create an Air Traffic Control Tower simulation game. I've been programming in Visual Basic for about five years now, so coding the necesarry algorithms etc. isn't a very big problem. However, I've never designed a game with graphics. The idea is to make a 3D-landscape with static (e.g. buildings, terminals) and moving objects (e.g. planes, cars), in which the 'player' of the game can't move (only rotate 360 degrees and zoom in/out, as looking though a binocular). I was wondering if there is any possible method to make such a game with Visual Basic. I've been searching the Internet many times, but never found something that really looked like that. I would be very thankful if anybody here can give me some good suggestions or even help me with programming the graphical part (terrain and scenery). Thanks very much in advance. Kind regards, Koen P.S. Sorry for my bad English (if any)... [edited by - KoenD on August 8, 2003 1:19:16 PM] [edited by - KoenD on August 8, 2003 1:19:44 PM]

i know you can use DirectGraphics (the 3D graphics part of DirectX) in VB, and i''m pretty sure you can use OpenGL in VB too (but i''m not certain on that one). those are APIs for drawing 3D stuff.
