 Post Topic: Some questions about Cryengine.
PostPosted 25.05.2012, 00:39 
Greetings

I would like to know what programming languages i would need to learn to use cryengine? I'm new to game development, but i know some c++.

I just bought a c++ book to refresh my memory of the language, but i would like to know is there any other books i should get? So will i do fine with c++, or do i need to learn something else too?

Also, one more question. In my game i need the ability to edit terrain ingame, so that player can dig a small hole in the ground, would this be possible with cryengine or possible to program?

Thank you.

Contact Richmar as he knows a lot about C++. You can also learn Lua.

And yes. You can dig small hole in the ground. You can lower down the terrain and make model using procedural destruction. Again Richmar.

C++, Lua, and XML code are used in CryENGINE3 already.

C# is being worked on by Ink Studios, and is a lot more suitable than Lua. Its still being worked on, but the performance increase with it being used speaks for itself. :))
