Hi all,
I am not in any way a graphic designer, but I do admire and envy you guys who are.

I NEED HELP!!!

Ok, I am not sure if lightwave can actually do what I am looking for. I need design a game like application that will be a client/server architecture. This application will take some kind of architectural file format (AutoCAD) and will build a 3d map of that architecture. It will also involve some database work. it will be an interactive game like mapping system.

Can lightwave do that? if not, what can?

thanks all
Also, if any body is freelancing, I got projects for you all.

Sounds like you need some sort of games engine. Lightwave would help you create the content but I think you'd need something else to drive it.
