Re: Re thinking my game as an "app that creates game content."

That sounds exciting! I like these kind of games. Do you have plans for saving the game content to a file so that others can share game content they made? I like how RPG Maker does this. Yes right now there is a map editor mode and you can save maps for playing now or later. Also, you can save and ...

Re: My New Game ... still untitled

Does the map change? If not, you could always store paths that worked. How many entities are there pathfinding? I got a 50x50 map but each tile is itself broken down into a 3X3 subtile map. The reason I did that was the map changes with tile structures (that go on the 3X3) map and one structure is w...

Re: My New Game ... still untitled

Good job! Did you get pathfinding improved, I did not see that if you did. Yeah I solved the immediate issue; I've tested it with about 20 or so path-finding units in real-time, and it works suitably (running on a Surface Pro 2). Basically; in the Entity Component System, there's a Pathfinding comp...

Re: Re thinking my game as an "app that creates game content."

So the past 10 days or so have been this: I made a scenario where there is one evil AI empire, and some smaller ones on the edge of the map. The evil empire has slaves. I made it so the evil empire cities could adjust the % allocation of labor to and from farmers. This resulted in some cities going ...

Re: Re thinking my game as an "app that creates game content."

Man, that sounds really cool. Also, it's great to see your game in action somewhat. Have you got more video to share? https://youtu.be/1IVfv2NFVp8 So this video shows what I'm doing with this concept. I'm making a scenario where it randomly generates a map with a large central AI empire with a few ...

Re thinking my game as an "app that creates game content."

Hi all - I will stop posting new threads about my game after this and just call this "my game thread" because I finally feel like I have an "end game" in sight. About 8 weeks ago I began to see it less of a game and more of an "app that generates game content." So, I started creating customization t...

Re: Strangest bug I've ever seen

It doesn't look like you're missing anything to me. But in the first image, I notice that you can't see the value of testWTF . In the second image I can see that testWTF is NULL but testWTF_again is seated correctly. In the first image, is testWTF also NULL ? In my experience, these sorts of errors...

Strangest bug I've ever seen

This doesn't matter too much because I was able to work around it, but it has me scratching my head. I have a pointer to the human controlled player that does not get changed after startup, info_bar->humanPlayer. When I assigned two pointers (I named them WTF because I was so frustrated) to point to...

Re: I decided screw it, I'll make my game available

Great work, man. Having it out there early could get you some longterm fans and helps spread awareness. You should be proud, getting that far is better than 90% of developers. Thanks that is exactly how I feel. I also believed it was good for legal reasons. The company logo and the name of the game...
