Ok, so I am not 100% sure this is the correct board to post this in, but.....

I am building an game engine from scratch, and I was wondering: What do you think should be the bare minimum of graphics effects in a game engine that is written for a wide variety of 3d games? Edit: what effects would you want in a game engine if you were developing a 3d game with it?(e.g. Shadow mapping, particles, ?)

NECESSARILY? nothing besides being able to render objects. but if I had to say you hit it on the nose, beyond Sound and Rendering 3D models, Shadows and Particle Effects are the 2 Id say would add(though a little above Bare Minimum) but a wholeheartedly welcome addition.

Maybe I should rephrase that. I meant what effects people would want if they were developing a game with it, but I didn't write that correctly Tongue

We would want to see all features of JMonkeyEngine 3.0 and Ardor3D  Grin

I hope you only do that for pedagogical purposes...

We should have a wiki page of things not to write.  I also propose physics libraries and anything that "solves everyone's problems" for any subsystem.

He was very wise.

But the people who wanted to write game engines and not games thought he was a dolt.

The people(like me) that thought: Oh yes. Let's write the next unreal, also thought he was a dolt. For the first 20 minutes. And then they realize why it is called "Unreal".
