Title: game thing
Post by: Darvince on May 06, 2013, 09:12:14 PM
ok this will get of more fleshed out over time but for now i have an idea:

1. the world is created, with different biomes, resources and elevations.
2. people make settlements on it.
3. those settlements grow depending on their biome (openness), nearby resources (their usefulness depends on the era)
4. people make resources (farms) to help grow their villages, making resources is harder in regions of closed terrain such as rainforest or taiga.
5. each 12 hours, with increasing length per era, is 1 year in the thread.
6. if bong posts the thread is locked until his post is gone

the era's should be long and then short, like they would be if realistic as technologies develop on a log scale (to say faster and faster).

oh yes when we are building the first hut in the universe out of stone the turns should be six years per ten pages

but when we are battling it out with machine guns ripping through cities, the turns should be five years a post

makes total sense.

I think we should make the more boring eras shorter, and make it gradually longer.

shorter does not mean less post, just shorter in game

for elevation: https://developers.google.com/maps/documentation/elevation/#What
for biome, use a world biome map or something
