Hi, I know this has been posted many times, but I'm having trouble finding one that suits my needs. It should be open source or freeware, though if you have a really good commercial one post and I'll check it out.
I'm looking for an engine that suits a begginer, like a GUI editor, with not too much coding required, though I'd like scripting so I can get started with programmign and later move on to something like C4 engine. I'm looking for a 3D game engine, with decent to good graphics. Support for popular 3D model formats would be nice too, I don't want something that can only use its proprietry model format, like Alice Storytelling (my high school uses that for the total n00bs at game design, I've used Gamemaker and some other 2D engines before).
I'm not expecting to make games like UT3 with an easy to use engine, I'm aware of the fact that really good quality games require programming, I'd just like to get started.
If someone knew a really good tutorial or book that teaches 3D game programming (like hardcore pretty much just code engines) that would be begginer friendly post that too.
