Title: How far along are you (percent wise)?
Post by: BoggyP on December 25, 2010, 07:01:58 PM
Hi,

I've been following you guys for quite some time. Since the first playable beta :). Anyway I check the RSS feed sometimes but I haven't tried it yet since you guys seem to be making lots of progress over short amounts of time and I figured I'd wait since I found you guys after finishing a game. Well not exactly, the game was finished for me on level 8 by errors. But, I'm always excited when I check the feeds but I was wondering how much of it is complete? Seems good from what I've read and watched!

All the basics are there, some of the missing features are: earthquakes/epidemics, food & other litter and some smaller gameplay elements such as general happiness etc..

I'd say maybe 60%?

I would say that corsix is doing a greate job as he is bulding the basic of the orginal game and add new stuff latter. It is so much better than OpenTH because it never got that funtionalty than coresix did in a span of a year and half or so.

Has this number changed since December?

It has changed, we're maybe at 65 % or 70 % now?

I think you guys should have some sort of graphic representing your proximity to completion, on the website.

Definitely, if someone wants to and has the time to do it they're very welcome to do so. :-D

On that basis another 3-5 years to go.

Genuinely think this project is running out of steam should a new beta be out now? Is it because not enough work has been done on it? 3-5 years based in latest progress will make people lose interest despite the great work that's been done so far.

Agreed! Is this dead?

The project isn't dead.
If you look at the development updates, there have been fixes and small additions since beta 8.
But people are on holiday and have much school work to do, so there have been little time for the project.

If you have any skills (or want to learn), please help out in the project.
The more help, the faster until release.

I have to agree with Grimdoc, the project is far from dead.  The main developers have all been busy this year; with studies I guess (I don't know for sure, but reading between the lines they are at university), but even so there have been many additions and fixes to the game in the last year.

Instead of griping, why not offer to help, many hands make light work as they say? 

Similar projects faded away soon after starting, this one is plodding along nicely and the game is playable; which is more than can be said for some previous attempts with remakes of TH! (mentioning no names)

I just started CS last semester at my university. I switched into a different program so that I could do some CS. I'd like to help once I'm a bit more competent. Right now I'd only be somewhat useful in python. Just starting Java.

Python should be very similar to LUA, which is the main game language.
If you want to help out, that is very appreciated!

Sorry about before, I guess I'm just excited on the thought that we can soon pump community ideas into gameplay. My excitement turned to frustration.

Ok, so the only experience I have in coding is for websites... BUT I am a fast learner and would love to help out with this fantastic project... If there is any way I can be of help message me. :)

I think I'll wait a little bit  or so to start though. I'll need time to adjust and learn, and I'm not too busy to help but a bit busy to dive in.

I don't know about the webpage, but what we need is people to help out on the lua coding.
All the current issues can be found here: https://code.google.com/p/corsix-th/issues/list

Logic, trial and error is a great way of learning :p
If you (or anyone else) solve a problem, please upload a SVN patch to the issue.

Much info can be found in the wiki: https://code.google.com/p/corsix-th/wiki/LuaAndC

Lua is not too bad, I have picked up quite a bit over the last year or so and I had no coding experience at all.  I have designed a few databases in access and done a little visual basic.  As Grimdoc has said, look at some of the issues.  then study the code and over time you will see the logic and may spot something that is out of place or you may want to have a go at the to do list - things not yet in the game or marked as todo in the code.
trial and error does work, if you cock anything up and can't get the game to work you can always delete what you have done and download those files again.  Just do things in small steps, anything you submit will be tested first, so no worries on that score.

Cool... I'll prob try to look at it and see what I can do. :)

Greetings,

I registered just for asking how far the project is and when we are going to see an update? I cant tell you how long I have been waiting for a new release. ;)
