    I'm pleased to announce that I am working on a brand-new 3D Sonic engine! This is the very first time I have taken the initiative to build a game engine, let alone program a game, and I'm discovering tools and tips along the way, so please don't be harsh on me. I was inspired to do this after seeing a fangame called Sonic World. I loved what it was doing, but I couldn't stand some of the design choices Ozcrash made. Overall, I have not been happy with any 3D Sonic engines made thus far. Each excels at something but fails at something else. I started this because, in the long term, I want 3D Sonic fangames to have the quality that 2D Sonic fangames have. I also want something that's as close as possible to a next-gen Sonic Adventure experience.

    I have to completely remake the engine due to hacky code from when I first started using UE4 and how inefficient the old organization was; this is a very important year in high school for me, with finals, AP exams, colleges, etc., so don't expect a download until April-May. Also, there will be no trademark Sonic physics for a while because I am currently waiting for Xalske's custom gravity direction modification to be merged with the UE4 master build.

    "Don't make threads here unless you can show stuff" should probably be put in the rules at some point.

    Agreed, something like the "False Promises" clause.

    Now you kind of put yourself in a bind new guy, instead of passing the 20 post limit as a good member then saying you were gonna start a project in the general project thread, you now have about 15 posts to prove that you are working on a project of this grand of a scale.

    I wish you luck regardless because it does sound promising.

    Oh joy, another Unreal Sonic engine.
    I'll just be here with my empty Unity project.

    Yeah, we don't do speculative thread like this. Come back when you actually have something to show.
