looking for something to start out toying with and learning how it works. Anyone have any suggestions what to look for. I need to be able to compile changes and have access to mapping kits, or existing demo packs. Something that can be ran.

I remember that Genesis 3d was a rudimentary engine that came with some book. The source code was included. Try googling "Genesis 3D source code".

The Quake 1, and I believe Q2, engines are open source.

Another great engine to look into is available from Garage games... It is the one that was used with Tribes.

Torque.

It costs $100, though.

It's a great engine, and well worth the $100, but it isn't free.

Torque, that is the one. The graphics and indoor/outdoor scenes in Tribes 2 were awesome. Should have been a much bigger game... what a shame.
