Of course source and the doom 3 engine are outdated now and both companies will be working on new ones.

Sounds good though, but community projects are hard and often fail. I wish you the best of luck.

Thats some great stuff mushroomjay, 14 and working on a new engine. Is the stuff you're working on as complex as I think it is? But do keep us posted, who knows, maybe the games in the future will be run on the engine you guys made

By bloom you mean full screen glow effect?

The unreal 3 engine is by far more powerful than source and doom3, gears of war and rb6:vegas was an amazing preview of it. It also easily allows for split screen co-op mode and is even being made into an MMO with huxley, due out later this year.

Also, the "Doom" engine is comming out with a major upgrade for quake wars with the new megatexture stuff they've made themselves. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MegaTexture) I'm not sure how much it will help as the doom engine started like a year behind.

I wouldn't say the source engine was good anymore, but I guess your aiming at modders? Its probably the best modding friendly engine out there.

*sighs* The U3 engine at the moment has some intense limitations compared to the Source engine. You need to look into the minor details when debating about engines.
