So I have arranged a team consisting of myself and 3, maybe 4, others. We have been designing a 3D multiplayer battle game with some RPG elements. I'm the head programmer of the project, and I was wondering what others would suggest for languages or engines to use for this type of thing?

I'm fairly experienced with C++ and OpenGL, but there are some In-Game UI elements I'm not sure I would be able to program with just C++ and OpenGL. The game will consist of basic polygonal 3D models with no fine detail at first, and basic texturing, until we hire an artist onto the team. The only in-game GUI elements I will really need are a spell bar with drag N drop spell elements, and a simple inventory.

So, if you have experience with this type of thing, please make a suggestion.

Thanks,

Hodgeka

If you are considering using existing code/engines then UDK and Unity are probably both worth a look at.

If you hire an artist, make sure that he/she know basic things like why not to have 2000000 triangles on every model. Someone that is good enough on both programming and design will make a good integration with the programming instead of giving you more work.

"App". is an acronym and must always be followed by a dot.

I'll definitely check out the UDK. Anybody have any other suggestions?

Visual3d.NET is C Lang and .XNA. We are wrokging with it for our game on there and the graphics and API is simple to edit in the Visual Scripting. The Video Tutorials are great I am a Artist on the team and even I can do programming witht he tutorials. The Engine Editor is made for peopel that do not do a lot of programming though it also makes programming more simple.
