Thanks Zor. A lil question.

I don't wish to start a new thread or an argument on this at all. Its your Mod.

So you probably considered some other open source free engines that are similar to the H/life engine rather than using Steam?

So thats the question the pros an cons.

If you have some other free engines links I could do some research on it. HL2 would give it the best distribution thats the biggest thing about it.

Cheers!

I have been thinking of trying the newest version of 3 myself, but I spent so much time on my current forum I am afraid of losing all that work...

What is some of the "new" shit, that might be worth mentioning ?

Alternative engines

Check this http://www.devmaster.net/engines/

Yeah Steam is great (sort of) it keeps every one at the same patch level.

Some of these engine are hammer compatible and take H/life models etc (I would like to see bump mapping, detail textures and better skymap)

http://www.ca3d-engine.de


But there are heaps.

Thanks for these pointers...I will have to look at them...obviously steam is not neccessary in the long run as all that happens is that the games get packaged to be distributed by steam, so once we get a game up and running we can the do either steam dist, or ea dist...dont matter...whichever it be it may end up making us some money...however that is NOT my main goal...I eventually wish to work in the gaming industry and this is the best way do go about it...developing your own games...

Cheers!

Zor?

Maybe you could look at this abandoned project, also a book is published on the engine, that might help contributors. (Its the Green Light project)

Heh, I was actually taking over that project so to speak. My unit was developing a game and we got Project Greenlight to give us some of their materials since they had abandoned it. But we too abandoned it due to time constraints.
