      Hi,
      I apologise if this is a bit vague but I wish to create an online 3D soccer game(Just for fun). I have experience in C++ and C#(Windows programming).

      I have made a few simple 2d games so I am not completly new to game programming.

      I wish to create a game which will look similar to this American Football game.
      http://www.shockwave.com/gamelanding/football3d.jsp.

      Please can anyone who has experience tell me:
      1. Where can I start?
      2. What languages will I have to use?
      3. Will I need other technologies such as flash?

      Thanks for any help anyone can give me.

      Harry

      It depends exactly what you want to do, if you want your game to be like that so that you can play it on a webpage, you’ll probably have to use Director to be able to do 3D. If you want to make it a standalone app, I’d recommend you go with XNA as you already have some experience in C#.

      Yes I want to be able to play it on a web page. So is Director the best way to go forward?

      Thanks

      I would say so, flash doesn’t support true 3D as far as I know, director does.

      Another question, hope its not too silly…If you are aware of the online 3D game ‘Second Life’.

      How is this created? Would it use a package such as Director? or some other technology?

      Thanks again

      I’m not sure exactly what was used to create it, I’d wager on a mix of C++ and opengl as its cross-platform. It’s a downloadable app rather than a web-based one, hence it doesn’t use director or flash
