Been playing other games for inspiration(steam mostly).

But! I've still have been very busy with the codez...

It is currently my first priority - the coding.

I'm back after 3 months of silence...I'll be frankly honest with you: making a game which is forever remembered and played for decades to begin with is extremely hard. On top of that goal, coding is one of the hardest jobs out there(mentally hardest) and I'm currently the only person in the team.

So right now I'm working on coding. I'm trying new coding stuff, re-designing the game for the 150th time and making interesting levels---my current occupations regarding this project are: programming, level/world/campaign/game/story/quest/GUI design.

Coding is (even) harder than I thought it was. And same goes for game development.

More code a project has, more you need to learn new coding techniques.

More original game is and more depth it has, harder it is to design it.

Why is larger code harder to maintain and update(not to mention build upon)?

Because even testing, which makes coding more focused, is in this case needing hundreds of tests total before a very large program(in this case a game) can be completed.

And coding techniques are not even the beginning on it. You also have to be productive, focused, well time-managing, cooperating with your team, collaborating with your team(which means using collaboration tool) so just learning coding techniques won't do you much good.

Good comparison is when one tries to delete 800 MB worth of files at the same time...on my fast computer it takes like 10 seconds max... now imagine 8 GB of files. 8 GB is 8000 MB and it's 10 times as much as 800 MB, right? No... 1 gigabyte is 1024 megabytes, so 8 GB is 8192 MB.

Moreover, 8 GB is 10.2 times more than 800 MB. So if you multiply the 10 seconds for 800 MB with 10.2 it takes 102 seconds to delete 8 gigabytes?

No...not even close. 102 seconds is 1 minute 42 seconds, but in reality deleting 8 GB can take 50 minutes.

That's how workload piles up. Solution is strict specialization, having multiple files and testing(dynamic code analysis)+code scanning (static code analysis).

The game will have a good data refresh rate, which means fast responsiveness and no crashes.

Refresh rate is hard to be found in games and in other software as well. Games are not internally refreshed, so when a game crashes/has software latency/has ping(internet) latency you have to restart the game externally, which means manually.

I'm working on simplifying my code...if you "intentionally" over-complicate code, it can hinder the progress of dev.

So basically you simplify your code by using the tools you like/love. By using refreshment in your code you design/implement/code "faster" (less gradual).

I have been working on this game for 5 years and I'm still below 1% completion, both entire and what I call Omega version(before pre-alpha). Why?

i'll explain tommorow.
