Hi,

I am an new media artist and for my next work, I'll work about cities
I want some advices about a nice game engine on Linux enough performant to render a very big city (by exemple Honk Kong, NY etc) to grow in real time
I master C++, Opengl but for my project, I can't do all in low level because time, money and the skills of the team that will be mobilized for the project

Best Regards

Well, for nativ Linux engines there come the following engines in mind (in order how i think they are suited for such a task) - but i think when what you want to do is to render the full city zoomed in and zoomed out, you'll need to handle some LOD stuff yourself.

Still i have with most of them some issues, which i will add:

Commercial:

leadwerks http://leadwerks.com/

Pro: High performance which can be optionally programmed in c++ or lua
Con: actually not yet available on linux, but only weeks away and you can start on windows and then continue once it is released.

esenthel http://esenthel.com/

Pro: High performace, large feature set
Con: 64bit Linux only, needs quite new glibc (which means for example you can't run it on debian)

C4 http://www.terathon.com/

Pro: High performance, large feature set, relatively large community to help you with problems
Con: Not optimal linux support (e.g. does exit without any hint, if some other application is already using sound

Open source alternatives:

Irrlicht http://irrlicht.sf.net/

Pro: Long running project, can be considered quite stable, easy API structure
Con: Only graphcis engine, no physics, sound, etc.

GamePlay 3d http://gameplay3d.org/

Pro: veeeeery cross platform, generates ide projects for each platform, clean API
Con: Graphics quality not too impressive, although you can get some decent results when investing some work

Well, ended up with much more options that i planned when starting the post ;) - but unfortunately there is no engine out there that excells at every task, you'll have to check out a few i guess.
