  1. Help me to choose an engine

    It is difficult to pick an engine. Ulitmately, you will need to just pick one and try it; if it doesn't seem to be working out, try a different one. One engine that looks interesting to me (though I haven't tried it) is Irrlicht. It is suitable for multiplatform development.
  2. Cost of ESRB

    If anyone is actually interested... the fee is $2500 (according to folks at another site.) I have not posted at GameDev for quite a while. Some of the posts in this thread were surprisingly immature. Strange. I had visited this site in the past to help others and occasionally ask for help. I do not recall seeing this sort of behavior before.
  3. Cost of ESRB

    Moderator - please feel free to lock this topic lest it descend to petty insults, etc.
  4. Cost of ESRB

    I would expect the cost to be in the range of 1 to 10 thousand. I was wondering if anyone here could give a more accurate estimate. If not - please don't bother to reply.
  5. Cost of ESRB

    Does anyone know how much it costs to obtain an ESRB rating?
  6. Just some biased opinions... 1) It sounds like your group is pretty inexperienced so I suggest that you place a strong emphasis on keeping the whole project simple. Bearing this in mind... 2) Don't worry too much about the quality of graphics that you start out with. You can replace "quick and dirty" graphics with better quality artwork if (err... when) you get the game engine working. 3) The cities should probably occupy 1, 2 or 3 tiles, depending on the size of the city. But remembering point #1, you should probably start with single tile cities. You can expand the program later to incorporate bigger cities if you find that single tile cities just don't "play" right. I don't mean for any of this to sound unfriendly, its just that completing even a simple game is really a pretty big task. If you can finish a simple version, you can expand and enhance it. But if you try to do too much at the outset - you may drown in the details. In any case, good luck with your project - and please feel welcome in the forums!
