I think that we'll have to include at least a temporary implementation of all of these subsystems by the release of version 1.0, and greatly expand upon the latter later.
Thank you, updated the post to reflect that.

Layers of simulation, and in what order to make things

( This is a brief summary I wrote, and post here with Demian's approval. It is far from complete, and posted with the intent to incite discussion. ) The SotE simulation would consist of many subsystems, that interact with each other. While any subsystem can influence any other, there are still cases...

Re: The art aspect of SOTE future.

You ask very good questions, my friend. If SOTE is going to be completely pc based. There is a reason for it to be PC-based: the processing power needed for the simulation. If multi-player ends up being implemented in some version, I assume that a client for a tablet should be possible. But since I ...

it would be cool if some people are able to tame dragons and bring them to battles, or just milk cows.

Re: Internal Politics

No, you can't do that. I've explained it multiple times now. What don't you understand about it?

Re: Tile shape, maybe plusses?

I think you're thinking way too simplistic here. Just wait and see how it ends up.

Re: The Calandiel/David joint plan.

When developing the simulation code, you hit the "build" button, which figures out what needs to be recompiled, re-compiles that, puts the dll in the right place. Then you start the game to test.

When developing the interface code, it would work just like now.

Re: The Calandiel/David joint plan.

Okay, so Linux possible rather than Linux mandatory. Yes, and that's so that I can actually help you with coding... I'm wondering though how one uses C++ with Unity. As I described above: compile the C++ code into a DLL, and use that from the interface code (which is in C# and uses unity). I think ...

Re: The Calandiel/David joint plan.

learn Linux Eh, no. This set-up is such that it makes development of simulation code possible on Linux, but not necessary. You can perfectly well keep using Windows. learn C++ It's quite similar to C#. learn how to adapt it to Unity The entire set-up, and all adaptation-issues would be dealt with b...

Sounds like a good long term objective, but a few questions: when did you think the best time to implement was?
Last week.

Also, what's the advantage of Linux? Never used it myself.
Too many to list here.
