I suppose the only 2 problems i see with Torque, are that its closed source (So the open source idea goes out the window), and it looks like it costs a fortune, i dunno about the rest of you, but maybe it might be best to find an alternative. If Torque was more viable, i would certain choose it

[EDIT] When it comes to a 'leader' i think someone should be chosen who wont have a lot to do with project development, as i know (from personal experiance) its hard to ballance the two. I dont doubt any abilities of anyone, but handing out assignments, answering questions and queries as WELL as doing your own development part CAN be a handful, and can lead to general disorganisation, which at the end of the day, is BAD for a project of this size.

Insert $0.02 to continue [/EDIT]

Torque is NOT that expensive, for a fully featured game engine. But in spite of all this, and especially for the open-source issue, I still stand by the Ogre side.

kicked in the nuts in under an hour

I think i was looking at this in my current financial view (Professional web designer, Programmer, Network Administrator, earing 0 a month), $100 is about 60.. so its not really too bad :p

But i stand by your decision to use Ogre (Open source = good )

Are ya'll planning on going commercial with this game?
When the idea for building a game first came up, the thinking was for it to be released as a free game, and to make the game open sourced (although perhaps portions will be restricted to prevent cheats as discussed). A free os game ought to attract a lot of talent from the os community. Afterall, we have limited funds, so volunteers are needed.

My guess is that there will be some very good commercial spin off opportunities surrounding the game should it be successfull. Members of the core team can cash in on the spin offs as a well earned reward for their efforts should they be in a position to do so.

We have to first want to do this to build a great game and have fun doing it. If we're successfull at it, then the opportunities will follow - we just have to keep a sharp eye out for them.

All i can say to that.. is:

HERE HERE!

Seriously now, Basically, as botmeister says, our aim is to create something that people will enjoy playing as much as we will enjoy coding it (well, if me coding is anything to compare with.. EVERYONE will love it :p), I doubt there will be 'rigerous' coding by anyone, unless they feel up to it, no deadlines or forcing of abilities, we just do bits and pieces as and when we can :p

Granted, this attitude may indeed 'slow' development, but you all gotta remember, WE AINT BEING PAID FOR OUR TALENTS! But will come out with (judging from the peliminary (sorry for spelling) discussions) a very high quality product

(btw, i expect a full working version ready for release by the time E3 comes around again j/k )

Serious Sam used a custom engine.

Do yall have a theme picked out? Is the idea for a tactical Counterstrike-like game, or a non-realistic but fun stuff like TF, or something else original?

save earth from president bush.. maybe a cloned bush.. the real bush is inprisoned in the basement..
