Well, the game was at a crossroads. I need to take over the programming to seemovement, but the core that had been programmed was based on Objected-OrientedPHP, jQuery, and AJAX.I had limitedexperience with all three of them.Itwas a daunting task thinking of trying to get up to speed on all the languages,all at once.So, I had a decision tomake, do I continue to use the core as it had been developed, or do I breakfrom the core, and go with procedural PHP, which I was comfortable with. In mydesire to see movement, I chose the latter.Within a couple of weeks, I was seeing real progress, as I was now atthe helm, and programming on a daily basis, the parts that needed to cometogether for the economy module.Thespare database was getting filled with tables, as I was able to layout myvision, and start to bring all the various pieces together.The Marketplace, real estate, building construction,special items shop, hiring for a job, take a job, refining the activities, allof this became a reality in short order.I was finally seeing a playable game, and it was exciting to see all theparts finally coming together.
