    What language does what?

    Hello, I am very new to game programming and am still deciding what language to chose. I was wondering if someone could tell me the basic languages and what they are used for/best suited to. All I know is that Minecraft uses Java and Perl is for advanced webpages. Thanks, Owen

    What language does what?

    funny how you choose the only language that nobody suggested Why post a question in the first place if you've already made up your mind about it? To answer your question, ya, you can do a game like Civ in pretty much every language on the planet, and that, by definition, includes Java. The biggest bottleneck is always the programmer, not the language. [/quote] I had not made up my mind on Java but I knew in my head that at some point I would want to do it. I left it out of my original question to try and get un-biased knowledge of all of the languages to see if I changed my mind. But good spot anyway

    I think I will end up going with Java and maybe learn Python at a later point. One last question, would it be possible to make a game like Civ in Java? (That is worded wrong, I know I could but I suppose my question is, is it relitivly easy?)

    Python seems like a god one but it seems that it is more web development rather than games. My ultimate goal with programming is to create a game like Civilisation (a simpler version and a game like Minecraft. Java sound good? One of my friends knows Java so that is a bonus for it as I can get help from him.
  5. Hello, I am looking to develop a simple political simulation game much like Nationstates. Some what question is What language(s) do I need to develop this? I get the impression I need PHP but is that all I need? Also how would I go about developing the game? **EDIT** This video explains Nationstates very well if that would help my question (it is 6mins long but if you skip through it you can still get the idea)

    Okay.. So.. What language(s) to learn?

    I contacted the developer and he said the whole game was written in Perl

    But isnt Nationstates in effect just a series of dynamic webpages which is the point of PHP? [/quote] You know what, I know NOTHING about Nationstates, and I still realize that PHP is not the solution! PHP is a bastard of a language and should go the way of the dodo. If you have a game that is basically a series of dynamic web pages, use something else... I would suggest Node/Express/Javascript personally in that case. [/quote] Okay, I am new and you have a good reputation so I trust you How much does javascript have in common with java? (just wondering). This video explains Nationstates very well if that would help my question (it is 6mins long but if you skip through it you can still get the idea)

    I think there was a post on another forum which mentioned PHP. Yes this is my first game. Also in effect isn't Nationstates just a dynamic webpage which is what PHP can provide?
  10. Hello, I am new to game development and was wondering how to make a browser based simulation (like nation states) Hope you can help ~ Owen
