This is my first post in this forum, so I m sorry for the long message!
We are a small team of proffesionals exprerienced programmers (14 years each) and we are planning to develop an MMO game. For the moment I m doing a research on which engine to choose for the development of the MMO. After many days of research I m really confused since I really do not know which engine to choose! I finally came in a conclussion, between Irrlicht or C4. But which one is better?
Just to mention it, we are not afraid of having to writing any needed part like networking client/server part etc, but from the other hand we would strongly prefer to avoid rewriting needless code!
Also we would NOT like to develop our own engine from the scratch! We prefer to use a ready made one, but we do not have the budget for the Unreal.
So, pros and cons? Which one is better? smoothier movement, animation, better graphics? Physics? plugins?
Has anyone tried both? Any experiences?
Any other suggestion apart from Irrlicht or C4?
