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?
