Hey! I've only just began to learn C++ (or any programming for that matter), and I realize it will be a few years before I can begin making mods from games and stuff. But I was wondering If this scenario would be posible?

Would it be possible for me to take 2 different (but I think they would fit together good with a few creative adjustments) games and combined them together into 1 mod? I realize that while playing you would have to be in 1 game engine at a time. That they can not simply work together, but what if I made a host program that dirrected which game engine the players where in and allowed them to change from one engine into the other while keeping their scores and stats and things on the host(mother) program?

I was thinking like make a full multi-player online mod out of Tribes2 and Tachyon The Fringe. Were the players could have ground battles in the Tribes2 engine and then puchase ships to ingage in space battles and space travel in the tachyon engine. Mabe even a third type of battling could be included on the host(mother) program that could be more of a stratagy & team resourse/player command/management part.

So what do you think? Could it be done? Or am I just a dreamer thats out of luck? BOOGIEMAN.....ICQ: 104000501 peace.......

Sounds like a cool idea, but be prepared for some very hard work. I guess it sounds theoretically possible, but man, that would be a monster to code/debug/test.

By the time I'm good enough at programming to do this I'm sure I'll have a few new Ideas and It will probably evolve into a whole different plan but I allways fallow thru...........

...bring it on.................lol...................
