I'm going to try to get States and Corporations published on Steam or Desura or something. I feel like I'm wasting my effort otherwise. I'm going to license my RTS economics engine to other people.

I'm not going to continue with the BSP/inside buildings/terrain mesh effort. I'll start working on States and Corporations now and making it non-grid based like SimCity 5. It will include multiplayer and ability to host your own persistent servers on linux.

I could take a year to release the first States and Corporations and then work on a sequel.

I hope you'll support my IndieGoGo effort. Let me know what you want to see in the game and in the engine for possible perks.

Ideas for multiple currencies: http://www.alanwood.net/unicode/currency_symbols.html

I started on a chart of the economy. You can see how massive it can get. https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/109630018/economy.png

The ultimate strategy game! If I systematically balance it to the end and don't get lazy that is. You can see how I balance in my blog http://www.gamedev.net/blog/1512/entry-2256426-balancing-an-economy/ http://www.gamedev.net/blog/1512/entry-2256439-half-hour-game/ I had an idea for a balancing calculator but that could require an equation solving algorithm.

Thank you for your ongoing support.

I'm going to try to get States and Corporations published on Steam or Desura or something. I feel like I'm wasting my effort otherwise. I don't know if I'll still going to make the RTS economics engine available for free. Would people be interested in licensing my technology?

I don't know if I should continue with the BSP/inside buildings/terrain mesh effort, or if I should start working on States and Corporations now and making it non-grid based like SimCity 5. It will include multiplayer and ability to host your own persistent servers on linux.

 

Should I invest years into developing this technology? I could take a year to release the first States and Corporations and then work on a sequel.
