hi, welcome to panda3d.

about pm’s and msn and the likes. you’r lucky if you can find one. but usualy you can get help here on the forum. that’s wat it exists for. everyone can search here for problems and sollutions.
panda includes almost everything you need. except the artwork and the code. which would be your job to create. take a look at the manual, the samples (start with the solar system sample). and the “absolute beginner thread” (it’s a sticky) here on the forum.
if you need someone to chat to. there is the #panda3d irc channel on freenode. feel free to join.

about making things big… just an advice… keep things small . at least at the beginning.

also try to use the forum’s search function. there are many posts regarding rpg’s and networking, collisions, animations. those are quite common topics.

i guess the first thing you’ll have to do is. learn some python. if you haven’t already. unles you know some python basics you wont be able to use panda. you can find python tutorials all over the web, many links where posted on the forum,too.
