need help with 3d game engine programming

Hey guys.  Any reply at all to this posting would be great.  I am
experimenting with making a really simple 3d game engine.  I would really
like to know how the Quake engine works?  In all the level editors that I
see, you can make brushes and even combine them to make complex objects.
How does the BSP builder make all these objects into a level?  I am starting
my experimentation using the BASIC language.  I know it is not the most
speedy language as far as games development, but it has all that I need for
right now, including a handy LINE function that can create some nice boxes
with just some math logic.  My engine at the start, is only going to feature
walls, ceiling, and floor.  Just a winding mazy thing.  I will make it
better later when I have the logic of 3d engines down.  I would like get
some suggestions on how I should implement this.




1. Need help getting started in Making a 3D game engine and 3D progamming

Hey guys,

I'm going to get to the point. I want to be a game programmer some day but I
don't know shit about it.
I need some tips from YOU as to where to get up on the learning curve. I
know a little C and C++(but I don't know enough to be kick ass at game
programming). Also do I need a 3D game engine first or should the game come
