I'm heading a game development team and have recently discovered Java. We are currently using C++ and after hearing good things about Java I decided to do some research. Our current project is just starting up and we are still able to switch languages on this one, should we decide to. The head programmer is familiar with some java, but is unsure of its capabilities. My question is this: What are some reasons I should use (if I can use) Java for a 3d rts/rpg based game?
Is it even possible? And if so what are the downsides to using Java for a 3D game?
If you have any questions concerning what I am asking, just ask. Thanks to all who reply!
