Hi guys !

 

Sorry to bother you ! My name is William, I am a cg Artist and a game design student, and I need your help for something.

 

I would like to create a simple life simulator based on interactions between different tiles (in a grid).

On the paper I already have the entire system done, with all interactions between tiles.

Interactions such as : Each tile has an amount of a ressource, and 10% of that ressource is sent to adjacent tiles every minute.

The problem is : I am a beginner with programmation and I have no idea how to make the tile system in the first place.

 

Is there any engine or plugin already existing that would make it be easier ?

 

Thanks !

You need to learn how to program first, before attempting something like this. Even with a game engine you will need to know how to write game scripts.

 The answer would be using a 2D array, and some way to iterate through it - however you need some experience before attempting more complex programming such as this.

1. Anything that is in the world when you’re born is normal and ordinary and is just a natural part of the way the world works.
2. Anything that's invented between when you’re fifteen and thirty-five is new and exciting and revolutionary and you can probably get a career in it.
3. Anything invented after you're thirty-five is against the natural order of things.
