Re: Provinces: Layer on Layer action!

From the calculation I made at the beginning, the reasonable size for the edges of the hexagons would be in the order of 5 or 10km. Some people were already making assumptions for other mechanics considering tiles 10-100 times smaller, which means 100-10000 times more tiles and memory: completely im...

Re: Procedural Animals

Sounds interesting. The question on domesticable animals is important for the development of civilizations. In the real world it had a lot of implications that African-Eurasian animals co-evolved with humans as they refined their hunting methods, allowing them to adapt and survive until the domestic...

Re: Provinces: Layer on Layer action!

About the bridges and rivers... if the tiles are going to be around 5-10km wide, most rivers (except extremely big ones) will have to modeled as frontiers between tiles, rather than tiles.

Re: Internal Politics

A faction system like that of Stellaris basically means who influences/controls the central government. I think the internal politics system has to contemplate more dimensions, like the continuous struggle between centralization and descentralization. Also, as political units tend to be made up of s...

Re: Technology and how it shapes us and the world of Songs of the Eons

This raises the question of what type of technology development SOTE should have. One option is a "directed" technological development, where you research what you select like in the CIV games, or as in your proposal to focus researchers in certain fields increasing the likelyhood of development. Se...

Re: Provinces: Layer on Layer action!

Until there is a tectonic model with which to generate random worlds, I thought we could use Earth's map for testing all the other systems. I got my hands on a topographic map of the Earth with 1km resolution (1.87Gb) from this website: http://iridl.ldeo.columbia.edu/SOURCES/.NOAA/.NGDC/.GLOBE/topo/...

I apologize in advance, but when I read "the fundamental nature of X is..." I just had to do this xD

Re: Land Warfare Mechanics discussion

Hello folks, please forgive me for entering here like a bull in a china shop, but I want to contribute my opinion on the matter of discipline and it is quite passionate xD. By a disciplined troop, i would understand a troop with cohesion, that is quick and efficient in reacting to/holding to orders....

Re: Provinces: Layer on Layer action!

I was starting to look for books of tectonics and rheology, when I found something very interesting: a PhD thesis featuring a procedural terrain generator based on (simplified) plate tectonics. Some minecraft modder group called "Terasology project" is actually using this generator xD. Thesis: http:...

Re: Provinces: Layer on Layer action!

unless what you are sugesting is let the world create itself by those mecchanics, before the main species even apear, that would be interesting. That is exactly it: first have a "world creator" that sculpts the world with plaque tectonics and calculate the bulk of climate (oceanic/wind currents). T...
