War industry & economy WWI-WWII turn based strategy. Humans use tools to change resources into things. So Workers + Factories + Resources = Production. That's the basic relation. But how exactly present it? The most obvious equation Production=min(Workers,Factories...

WWI population & conscription Reasonably realistic (not necessarily historical) WWI-WWII turn based simulator. Timescale around 2-10 years. Population is presented as working population (children and eldery excluded). I would say 30% of them can be conscripted (50% are fem...

Research and implementation You spend research points, the technology pops up. So far so good. But how about implementation of the new technology? What about the cost of building newly researched things, infrastructure needed, better factories high-tech enough to be able to pro...

Science & Education Turn based strategy game, XVIII-XIX century. I try to implement a research system with these properities: - give strategic choices to player (obvious) - the researched technology (research points) has to be also implemented (construction cost),...

Resources and ore deposits Turn strategy about industrial revolution. I want to make an interesting resource system. Maybe not anything thrilling but something that would make these feel different and force player to make some decisions. What I want to avoid (at least a bit...

Population, buildings and land Turn based strategy. There is land (one variable describing number of plots of land) and population (one variable). Each plot of land allows 1 building, unoccupied land is considered farmland. Buildings are the most important things in the game, t...

Problem with trivial choice bonuses I always had this problem with multiplier bonus using the same resource as the multiplied base. No matter what, there is always one optimal path. Like this for example: We have 2 unit types, soldier and officer, both cost the same. Soldier ha...

War industry & economy Quote:Original post by Katie ’ "maximum of how much of your economy you're willing to devote to weapons" is not realistic, because many customer goods do not compete for resources with military production. ’ No, but if you're doing...

War industry & economy Quote:Original post by Khaiy Except that production of weapons (or any other thing on a national scale) is going to be funded by taxes, bonds, or deficits-- more funding for war production will decrease money that consumers have to spend o...

War industry & economy I should have noted at the start that my budget for this game is 4-8 hours of coding :) So I'm looking for abstact and simple solutions. There will be soldiers, workers, factories (one type) and one abstract resource. Maybe a few more, but overa...

WWI population & conscription Quote:Original post by phresnel Quote:Original post by Acharis Good point... For 1-15 years war breeding rates during war are irrelevant since all workers and soldiers had to be born before war anyway. There was the Volkssturm and even younger c...

WWI population & conscription Quote:Original post by Talroth If your game is only lasting 2-10 years, then you're not exactly going to have time to worry about 'breeding' rates. Good point... For 1-15 years war breeding rates during war are irrelevant since all workers and...

Engaging combat The problem might be with the "MMORPG" part. If this was a puzzle then no problem, but if this was like World of Warcraft... I mean, you can click mindlessly attack button to swing the sword or cast random spells for hours, no problem. But RSP requir...

Research and implementation For Starcraft research and implementation stage does not apply, since you have no research points. Everything costs minerals and gas. So if you invent zerglings upgrade we could say you paid for implementation as well since you paid with resources. ...

Turn-Based Wargame : Would love some feedback. Hex turn-based + huge world does not make a good combo.

I have a game design dilemma and could use some advice Every 5 levels you get an ability to skip 1 level. You can go back later and solve the level to get your "skip level" back for further use.
