Re: Where do I begin?

I'm working on an RPG engine at the moment, and yes it is a challange. 
 The most important thing when working on large projects is 
consistency(I know, I can't spell...).  For (relatively) small things 
like coding styles, and bigger things like subsystem design.  Games are 
usually split up into multiple subsystems: graphics, input, game logic, 
etc.  Crystal space handles quite a bit.  How much experience do you and 
the rest of your team have working on large scale game projects?
