It doesn’t matter how far you go back in the relatively short history of video games, storage space and memory limits have always been an issue. Today’s games are concerned with texture sizes [...]

I love that some folks are still concerned with foundation. Some of the self-taught programmers or 4GL+ folks probably don't even know what assembly language is.

09 Jan 2015. The God Login. I graduated with a Computer Science minor from the University of Virgina in 1992. The reason it's a minor and not a major is because to major in CS at UVa you had to go through the Engineering School, and I was absolutely not cut out for that kind of hardcore math and ...

My first attempt at using a rail cart as intermediate storage in #factorio (top right). It looks terrible. I can only manage 6 inserters along the side of the cart. In hind sight, I should have tried a green circuit cart, a red circuit cart, and a green inserter cart. That'll be tomorrow's project :)

LOL, I think those radars use more powers than the rest of the base. I also like to space them further apart so that they provide better "vision" (as opposed to scanning) of the map.

This is pretty cool
 
This is way more fun than seems reasonable. This program uses a simple genetic algorithm to evolve random two-wheeled shapes into cars over generations. From what I can see it is based purely on random mutation* of parameters where the one with the best performing "phenotype" is preserved and copied to the next generation.

Anyway, try running it in a background tab for a few hours.

* Some genetic algorithms go further than this by also "cross breeding" the best performers (ie by making a hybrid parameter set using bits of each parent). Presumably, you can get better designs faster this way because you can explore the solution space without necessarily getting trapped in nearby but sub-optimal solutions.

Totally agree, +Larry Monte . Then again, derivative game can be good fun. I didn't like Endless Space, and skipped out on Endless Legend after seeing let's plays of it, but I really enjoy Dungeon of the Endless. It's quite a simple and fun (and frustrating) game. I'm hoping this new game will buck that Civ trend as well.

+Lambert2191 My first attempt with the rail cart was very messy. I tried to cramp too many things into the carts. I'll have to try it again and be more judicious / modular with the setup.
