Just starting out...some basic questions.
Alright so first of all I wish to say I am very impressed with the rendering power of the Esenthel engine; it really is quite amazing. Over the past weeks, I have been looking at game engines that would suit a FPS style game that I plan to develop. However, I currently am unsure of how Esenthel would stand vs UDK ( my other option atm).

First of all, I have designed a basic world already using the toolset, yet I am confused as to how and where you program the gameplay and events that affect that world. Is there a specific CPP file I am looking to edit (I already have created a project and have the 00Start cpp file)?

In addition, I am assuming that the loading of worlds, main menu, loading screens, complete gameplay system, weather, AI and the like all must be programmed in C++ under the project files. Is this accurate?

Other than that, I am struggling to understand the engine for the most part. However, the part that will really make an engine catch my eye is the scripting/programming and the quality of it. One can have beautiful world but it isn't a game unless their is something fun to do inside of it.

Any direction towards solving these questions or helping a beginner out will be highly appreciated. Thanks a ton in advance for your time.

Sincerely,

Unforgiven Hero

yeah, but I'm also finishing development of Code Editor which can simplify programming alot. however for the moment most of the tutorials is available only as pure c++ (please check SDK\Tutorials folder, you'll find everything there, 100+ tutorials)
