I am looking for a good Game engine. I have gone over some of them but i just cant figure out which one to use!
So this is my game design:
You can Play online with your friends and fight fires.
You first spawn at a fire station and get the possibility to select your vehicle.
Then you can put equipment in your vehicle and use your vehicle to get to the fire.
You can also go walking but i don't recommend it as i am going to make a whole city with random fires.
So requirements are:
- Big enviorments
- Map loading... Not hard coding.
- Realistic particles.
You should look into UDK, Crytek, and Unity. They all have free versions for trial/personal use, though they cost money if you want to sell a game made with them.
This guide illustrates the 20 most popular 3D engines in modern usage.
Pretty much every one of them has all of your features, the decision comes down to platforms requirements and your budget.
