    Default Getting started into 3d game development?

    I'd love to get into game development, especially 3d but I'm not really sure where to start. I was thinking C++ and a modeling program such as 3ds max. The only problem being is I have no prior knowledge in either. Could anyone "Spoon feed" me a bit as to where I could find some tutorials and resources etc?
    Thanks

    This girl teaches you basics of game programming, using C++, but it's not 3d, but you should learn 2d basics before going to the 3d phase.

    I recommend you get involved in another project first (successful or not) to gain some experience in game design (I assisted in scripting 3 games, 2 were dropped ones being remade but my scripts are still implemented. Even though they failed I know a lot more than I did )

    I would recommend in using a game engine and learning to import your own models etc.

    -Orge3d
    -Unity
    -Panda3d
    There are many others, look on Devmaster.net

    Good Luck.
