Ok, first time post. You guys seem very smart so I think I’m in the
I’m a beginner, I just got a book at the library for c# so I dont know
squat. My ultimate goal is to make a 3d action adventure game similar to
zelda or SOTC. My question is; what other tools should I have in my
arsenal? If I learn c# what else will be needed to accomplish my
ultimate goal? I hope to start out small, tetris, pong, silly games with
no in depth thought. But this game I have in my head is my life goal.
I’m willing to learn these things, I just need some direction.
Oh, and I also want airplanes in the game that go WOOOSHH and fire
energy blasts like BOOOM. sorry, I get ahead of myself. Thanks in

3d or 2d?
voxels or polys?
theres a few ways to go about making a game, so you need to be a bit
more specific, then i could suggest a few more programs you might
3d for sure. i dont really know the difference between voxels and
polygons. I dont care for realistic graphics. I would like an open world
theme with air travel. kinda the way wind waker was set up except not
I know you want to build your dream game and all that, but you’re right
in starting small. Don’t worry about anything other than learning the
very basics of programing, just get a sprite to move around using arrow
keys.. then build from there.
If you want to make a 3D game you will need 3D Models, if you want to
start learning modeling, download blender (it’s free) and have a try:
Good luck and remember, don’t get ahead of yourself, everyone starts
from the beginning.
also have a look at 3d coat. www.3dcoat.com, it could
look a little advanced at first, but really its actually very simple,
and creates very stylish graphics… great organics and great mechanics.
voxels are kinda new…
so maybe its best to stick to textured polys.
leave the advanced stuff till later.
first things you should make sure you know how to do, is modelling, uv
texturing, skeletal animation, collision detection, landscapes (for your
environment) game play scripts and ai/bot scripts and networking, then
youll pretty much have it all covered.
