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.

... also Welcome To The Forums !
