does anyone know of any open standard scene file formats, I need a format to include things like lights, portals or any arbitrary objects(3d) you can think of and label it for a specific purpose? I was looking at the gtkRadiant .map format but this seems to be more specific to quake and after having no luck with gtkRadiant I decided to ask here. ?

COLLADA is an open standard format for 3D scenes. As far as I know it's mostly used to exchange content during 3D application development as its text format causes large file sizes. I don't know about portals though, and I have a feeling that you're rather looking for a game level file format?

yeh, but just a more general purpose level/scene, I don't wan't to have to build a level editor alongside my game, ideally something that lets you export 3d primitives under a certain user-defined class so that you can identify an objects specific purpose when parsing. for eg. (xml):

<entity type="3dpoint" class="spawn_point" location="0.0;0.0;0.0"/>
<entity type="3dpoint" class="point_light" location="0.0;1.0;0.0" radius="100"/>

where "spawn_point" and "point_light" would be recognized by your engine/game etc. and which you would have to specify in the level editor.
