I hadn't thought it into detail like that, in fact I was just thinking of making it a single-player game to begin with, but a multiplayer option would be cool too.

Anyway cool, it sounds like Python is the best language to use, so let's settle on that and search for a good online text editor.

like google docs for python?
http://google.com
bam http://pythonfiddle.com/
but idk how it's going to like pop up a map it's probably wrong but oh well
edit: nvm ninjahed

ai would be tricky for single player. how do you propose that be worked out.

a stack overflow question reccomends collabedit as a decent collaborative code editor. lets use that for now, it's easy to switch anytime

on second thought, collabedit may not be the best way to collaborate. unless the entire thing will go into one file, which seems unwieldy and confusing, multiple files will be needed. maybe github is a better alternative, once i figure out how it works.

AI for single player, well I worked a simple AI into the java project I made that is basically just something like "claim adjacent empty zones" then "conquer adjacent enemy zones until I run out of resources" mixed with "build cities on my own zones" I think. A genious AI isn't too important for me, you can just adjust the difficulty by adding more enemies or maybe give the others an income boost etc.

I thought of working out something like a war toggle, so that by default, the other nations wouldn't attack you unless the war toggle came on, but never made that.

I think I just made a project on GitHub

https://github.com/Red-Rainbow/MapWar3

Feel free to try joining/editing, or create a user and tell me your user if you want me to add you, if that's required.

I'm making an organization called MapWar 3, the project should be under that one instead I think, then cooperating should be easier. Setting it up.

I think I'll give vh the power to take most decisions about the program planning and stuff, because vh knows much more about Python than I do, so you can choose how you want the program to be planned, which files we should use and create files etc. whenever you want.

I think it would be cool to have both a singleplayer and multiplayer option, but that singleplayer is most important - if vh is mostly interested in Multiplayer I could focus on SP and he could focus on MP.
In some areas, they will overlap, I'm not sure how to plan that most efficiently, maybe it would be best to develop them as pretty much two completely separate games inside one.

Files that I think we'll need are
Options.txt - a simple text file people can edit to change their preferences, in my Java project, this is how it looked:

Code: (Options.txt) [Select]
Turn Break Time = 1000
Show Advanced Turn Info = n
Nation Name Type = Community/Earthly
Leader Name Type = Community/Earthly
National Color = red

LeaderNames.txt - a file to store some leader names that the AI players will randomly pick, in the Java project, this was its contents (the first line was the number of names it contained):

Code: (LeaderNames.txt) [Select]
9
Bla
Atomic
Naru
Matty
Kipz
Deoxy
Fiah
Darvince
Quontex

NationNames.txt - a file to store nation names for AI players, here's the contents from the Java project:
Code: (NationNames.txt) [Select]
18
Blaist Blaland
Solea and Rift Auspikitan
Bielosia
Ethanthova
Starrie
Spheron Rilmu
Aeridani
Kaeshar
Darvincia
Socialist Republic of Yukidar
Kaktoland
Epicland
Awesomeland
Ampluterra
Desertopia
Quontia
Socialist State of Spheron
Vinelandar

Here is the code for the Java Map War 3 after I stopped working on it:

no time to commit and push so this is the explanation of why i changed what i did

i used settings.py rather than a text file because what if you need to store a list of values instead of just numbers
for example, the price of cities might be 1, 3, 5, 12, 20, 80, 100, and you can store that just by saying
cityprice = [1,3,5,12,20,80,100]
if you want to create the first ten powers of two for city prices you might say
cityprice = [2**x for x in range(10)]
which will make a list [1,2,4,8,16,32,64,128,256,512]
while you can do all this with a textfile and some string manipulation, i think it is a bit simpler with a .py file

initializer just creates a nation file for now. if you run order.py though, it should first initialize the nation file, then run all the rounds.

edit: ok order.py works. it asks you for the debug mode twice but besides that it works.

I still feel a bit lost in the project, but do you have some suggestions for what we could work on?

i made a diagram of how the files might work together to make it clearer.
https://github.com/MapWar3/MapWar3/blob/master/layout.png

as for what we could work on next, i guess the zones would be a good starting point.
by that i mean the points used to generate the polygonal zones. this is pretty much algorithmic, so everyone knows as much as i do here. figure out how to generate points and group them into lists. once you have the list of points it's straightforward to draw the polygons.

maybe create a class for zones. attributes like structures, type, owner, list of points, adjacent zones, etc. an id attribute would be very useful

add attributes to the nation class like owned zones, at war with, etc.

then let the processor read in turn files and modify the nation files. for example, a turnfile that says a nation has conquered zone 1 and 2, the processor would add zones 1 and 2 to the nation's list of zones.

i was thinking something with voronoi cells. they look nice, are polygonal, and non regular. almost like the map war 2 maps.

they're a bit tricky to code though.

i guess there isn't anything wrong with a hex grid or a square grid, but if there's nothing else to do a better map would be cool.

or you could get a "drawer" to draw lots and lots of maps (basic, without unit zones)

I like the options for all three. Maybe some default maps (a few of the map war 2 games and earth or something?)

Looks nice
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Voronoi_diagram

I think it's best to focus on voronoi cell maps to begin with, if we make code that is compatible with that, it should be compatible with generating square and hex maps as well.

And important part is how we'll check whether two zones border, I never got that to work properly in the Java program I made, but the code I tried to write there I think I made flexible enough to apply to maps with all kinds of polygons and not just squares.
What we need is to check whether zones have at least two points that are a part of both zones' edge, so that squares don't connect diagonally.

I found this project with publicly available code, maybe we could draw some inspiration from it for our map generation.

http://www-cs-students.stanford.edu/~amitp/game-programming/polygon-map-generation/
http://www-cs-students.stanford.edu/~amitp/game-programming/polygon-map-generation/#source
https://github.com/amitp/mapgen2

It also uses the voronoi diagram method. The Appendix: References also has sources to other sites that could be useful.

This page also has info on voronoi diagrams:
http://www.gamedev.net/topic/576541-voronoi--worley-noise-knowlege-dump/

This page has example code to generate a voronoi diagram:
http://rosettacode.org/wiki/Voronoi_diagram#Python

The code requires PIL, which is available here:

interesting.

here's a thread on how we could possibly figure out which cells are adjacent
http://stackoverflow.com/questions/9651940/determining-and-storing-voronoi-cell-adjacency

to store adjacency, i think we should consider networkx, a python module
http://networkx.github.io/
the module has many algorithms implemented like shortest path, minimum spanning tree (all good for AI and even human use).

huh.
the code for map generation you uploaded won't work well.

it uses brute force to compute the nearest point and color it. this doesn't scale well. On a 200x400 pixel image with 400 points, this can take a minute or so. on a 2000x2000 pixel image with 400 points, it might take an hour.

an hour isn't too bad if you don't need to generate a bunch of maps -- we could even pregenerate the maps so that the user can select one rather than having to create one

The problem is that we never really 'get' the cells. we've colored an image, but we don't know which cells are adjacent or what the real boundaries are. we'll have to store all the cell values for each pixel and search for it every time the user clicks. this is somewhat sloppy and might be slow. in addition, searching for adjacent cells or the distance from one cell to another seems like a huge nightmare. you'd have to look at every pixel and it's adjacent pixels.

luckily scipy can solve both these problems for us. i'm implementing a solution

Some extremely basic restart work on Map War 3. Uses Python 2.7 and Pygame.
