Developing crane simulator

Posted 16 December 2017 - 12:50 PM

Hello everyone! I have decided to make a crane simulator (first person with view from cabin). Mostly, I aim on realism as I want this simulator to be used by real сrane operators to upgrade their skill. That's why I need an engine to easily work with physics (such as wind, rain, weight of cargo and etc). Have to mention that I don't really care about graphics quality. Maybe, but this has the least priority, after completing the whole project I would need a VR version of it, but for now I am planning just a PC version.

Here is main points of my project:
  • Physics has the major priority
  • Using tools suitable for a beginner developer
  • Ability to make a VR version of the simulator without rewriting of the whole project

My experience in programming is mostly in computer science, so I am familiar with C++ and Python, but only on a level of coding some cool algorithms. That's why I don't really depend on a specific language.

What engine and developer tools would you recommend to use? Easy to being with for a low-skilled like me, but suitable for my project.

Try out any of the major engines. Unity, Unreal, Cry. Pretty sure those would cover it.
