As a relative newcomer to NWN ( just over a year now), and as someone who is thoroughly enjoying using the toolset to create things, I was struck by this comment in another thread. Didn’t want to hijack that one so I started this.
Enjoying reading that thread but I’m now curious, what are those more modern engines? Are we talking here about Unreal/Unity style affairs or are there other games with an equivalent of the toolset and, if so, are they as easy to use yet as powerful with a large building community? If there are, is the big selling point the quality of the graphics ?
I remember being reasonably excited by the arrival of Project Spark, Microsoft’s effort, and equally horrified as they veered off into endless swirls on their landscapes and various cash grabbing antics. Sony’s Dreams just doesn’t appeal to me.
So, is there anything else out there, tempting anyone, short of investing the rest of your life trying to master the big hitters in Games Design? For me, working with a class of 14/15 yr old kids and seeing the ease with which from a standing start they can build whole stories and the pleasure it has given them is a pretty hard bar to beat.
