RTS Game Design

Recommended Posts

I am new to game programming, but I have a good knowledge of C++. I want to make a RTS game(2d or 3d – something like Warcraft) and I am looking for a free Tool Kit or an Engine (I prefer a Toll Kit) that will work on Windows. There are a lot of choices, so can someone recommend me some? Thanks, Zarko

Have you thought about finding a game that you can just mod? I don't know of any offhand, but that might be a nice route for you to start.

If you decide to go 2D, what I would do is write a simple engine yourself. That's what I did (the most complicated program that I'd written before that was Pong), and I learned a LOT about game engines. What I would do is start really simple, make a simple demo that just draws some bitmaps to the screen, then expand it. You will learn the most that way.

Go to it!
