Hi Phil, Yeah, that makes sense. While that wouldn't be that complex for someone like me the last thing a new user wants is to come face to face with all the complexities of creating their own database. I have to do something like that every time I create a new project with the G3D Engine as well, and I could see how filling out all that info might put some people off game development. However, filling in attributes for players and enemies is a far cry easier from writing an entire game from scratch.
Cheers!
