Hello all,

We are working on our graduation project, it's visualizing our school campus on a touchscreen using a 3D game engine. The idea is to use the application as an information center on a free standing touchscreen for new students and visitors. Information regarding school, faculties, buildings ... etc is going to be provided. Another important functionality is giving the user directions to any building the want.

We are using Unity3D game engine and coding with C#. The school model is done via AutoCAD and 3Ds Max.

We are considering using XML Database for storing the information instead of SQL Database.

Is that a good choice. Any recommendations?

We are totally new to game programming and have no background in it.

Thanks in advnace

If you are using Unity3D it might be helpful to find out what sorts of database technologies that are best supported. I would assume (and this is just an assumption) that SQL would be fairly well supported, so I would lean towards using that. I recommend trying to save as much effort as possible wherever possible.
