    Well, I think it is not the most important thing. Just leave it simply Engine. Name can be changed easily. 3Dengine is also not bad, but it starts from number)

    If you want to do this, I wouldn't wait for a community consensus. The last community project took so long, the guy who instigated it died before its completion.

    In all fairness, they actually had a compliant version before he died. They just kept working a little after that. (I had quit before that.)



    Anyway, have you setup anywhere where people can discuss code issues yet?

    Sipher, do you really want to start working on engine? Because this topic looks like you are trying to find reason why not to start. I wrote in previous posts that I have a real desire to work on something like this and I have already implemented a small part of it. Maybe you have already done something from engine to. Why not to combine our results?

    For example, you could have created a project in one of those code hosting providers. This may come with a mailing list, a forum, a wiki, or some other mechanism for planning and discussion of the project.

    Sorry for taking so long to answer back, I've been working on 3Dengine but there's always a bug, as usual. I've implemented a converter between the different color types ( Bitmap, Color-Index-4, Color-Index-8, RGB-16<X1R5G5B5 or A1R5G5B5>, RGB-24, RGB-32). The problem is, when converting from anything else to Bitmap, it spartially creates white pixels where there should be black. I've tried very hard to find what's wrong but i couldn't. So i got frustrated and decided that 3Dengine'll only be able to convert from all the above to RGB-24 or RGB-32 ( Anyway, i don't think that anyone'll want to convert a screenshot from RGB-24 to anything less ).

    ufo_driver: Yes, i really do!! What do you mean i try to find a reason not to start?! What have you implemented so far?

    laserlight: Then... no

    I've also already up and running a very handy 3D math library to use.

    Sorry for posting here, but i believe that this thread is absolutely relevant with what i'm about to say:
    I've finally worked around my fears and doubts and have finally started building the 3D engine.
    Anyone who would like to help is welcome. The project is hosted at SourceForge.net: Find, create, and publish Open Source software for free under the name "Herakles Engine" ( I actually made two by mistake, but you'll figure the correct one ). Its SVN repository is already set up, but almost nothing is uploaded yet. I'm currently at planning phase.

    Of course you could just give the link to the proper project: Herakles Engine.

    Son.... I am interest.

    In all seriousness, this thread has my attention. I'm currently developing a game but I am lacking in the 3d engine department. I think I'll jump in and recruit one of my nearby programmers to collaborate with me. How many people are currently working on this project? I might pump a little money into it if I like the progress I see.

    Every help is welcome.
    Currently, i'm the only one working on this one.
    Nah, there's really no need for money right now, at least for me. I'm doing it become i want to.

    Well the money could be used to buy some necessary software or something useful. Unless we are all swashbuckling pirates; in which case, proceed as normal
