    Playing God - The troubles of creating a real-size universe!

    Well the problem increases, when you start to realize...there is...no last digit of PI. A universe. A galaxy. A solar system. Proper brain functioning humanoid AI. Take a look at it this way: The title of this blog post says everything. How could God create universe? Stick to me, Roman-Catholics, please. There are SO MANY galaxies in the universe. And what are we, humans? Just a speck of dust within galaxy called Milky Way. So if you say in a complex system you change one number wrong, it collapses. And so would universe, if there was something out of order. And let's take this analogy back to the PI number. Calculators can calculate 100 divided by 3, which is 33.333 and infinite digits "3". There is no last digit of the PI number which means, you still have to put this insanely huge number into the universe.

    What are you?!?

    Trying to understand complexity, like you, except I don't live in between the conservative and the liberal worlds, but I have the hardest form of the worst mental illness, called schizophrenia. I see demons, pentagrams, I have nightmares, I'm scared when I listen to gangsta rap, because it seems they are talking to me. Also my youth wasn't much different to agoge, the Spartan training in the ancient Greece. Because of the fear I feel. But the illness has made me stronger, I decided to eventually recover from it, and in my worst crises, at the start of mental illness I started to like complexity. By the way, I have written some stuff about complexity in my public development journal of my current project. http://trix.slovenianforum.com I learnt a lot from GameDev and cheers to @khawk for making it and sticking to it. I don't like to sleep. I live in a fairly dangerous neighborhood and there is crime and cops going past my house. I'm Aco Krstić, author of the Trix games forums.

    'Play From Zero' Development Philosophy

    I had similar problems, I couldn't help myself but brainstorm ideas as I go. So I decided to break my project into smaller modules. I tried the playable approach, but you have to take into account you have to build the game as well as play it.

    I once motivated myself but only once

    Washing the dishes and cleaning the roof takes no effort??? Sorry, but I'm not buying that one.
  8. Read the legal issues(EULA). If you are not trying to reproduce anything and just the emulation to play with friend, it should not be of concern; even what regards using this project as your job portfolio showcase(I am assuming you are a game developer, as this is a game development forum).

    SFX Outdoor Atmospheres SFX Pack

    Great sound effects. Ever considered though the environment sounds come from environmental sources? Like from weather effects are changing, birds are moving across the game world and the sound effects are not static but dynamic.

    I once motivated myself but only once

    You might have misunderstood the meaning of the word motivation. You see it as something "everyone can do it other than myself, it's easy peasy to others". Motivation isn't super easy to anyone. It makes you start doing a task, but to pull it off, you need self-discipline. You motivate yourself by doing something you want to do. Don't panic. Test different techniques. Or concepts: like self-discipline is more important than motivation. Testing shaves off a lot of time of tasks and if you never test something new in your life, you won't learn as much as you could.
  11. Download Visual Studio 2019. Buy newest Windows 10; and update both 8 RAM is a lot. So is 3.2 GHz.

    How to avoid open-world grind?

    I think the main problem is in EverQuest Oblivion example: It's easy to fall into the trap of trying to make beautiful landscapes. By any means, make beautiful levels/worlds. But there are other ways to pull off than just making beautiful greenery and gothic-style architecture (by gothic I don't mean the Gothic game series, but an old building style). You can still make scary parts of the world, 3-dimensional puzzle mini-levels (like to obtain rare mining tools when you solve them) and lethal-trap landscapes.
  13. You need a consistent world information, no need to delete the information outside of the drawing chunk. You just have to chunk the loading time. If you delete any of the world information, it is lost forever. Let world information stay in the database, and use a flexible loading time. I'd give you example code in C++, but I really don't know which language/library you are using.

    Clueless on what to do?

    I am not going to lie to you. I did not read the replied posts as I have no freakin' time for it. I am suffering from schizophrenia, which is the worst of all mental illnesses and is worse than autism. I have the heavy schizophrenia, which is the worst form and is not curable with medications. The first thing you need to focus on is to actually heal yourself. The second to focus is to improve your focus. The third thing to do is to understand coding is hard and is one of the hardest jobs you'll find, so if you'll decide to code keep this is in mind. I live low too. I was involved in street fights and other crimes. And forget about the "Happy games" company name and "Happy times, Happy life". Life isn't all sunshine and rainbows, even for people who never had a mental disease. Questions?
