I'm working in Torque right now actually, and my thoughts of it this far is that it's really good, though very huge [smile]
I'm a bit amazed of all the things that's already in it and the (well, most times) simplicity of adding new stuff.
I've seen a varity of games be made in it, and it seems that Torque is a quite capable engine. If you were to add TSE you should be able to make a pretty "in time" game [smile]

One thing that's really a problem is the lack of documentation of both the script and the source. There is the book, "3D game programming all in one", that can be of help, but it's certainly no reference! Also the book was written (i think) using an early version of Torque, and you'll bump into things that are quite different...

Personally...i think the source for Torque is very complicated and sometimes a bit messy. I ain't talking about the quantity of code, just the way it's written. If you know your stuff though you should have little worries getting started in it.

I'm no engine expert, but my conclusion would be that Torque is a really good engine, if you have the patience to put yourself into it...and i really do hope that there are other great engines that's written a lot easier than Torque! [smile]
