UNITE WITH URR
« on: July 08, 2016, 07:07:15 am »

Why won't toady unite with URR creators and UrW ones and some others to create the ultimate game? If they'll combine forces, they'll do wonders.

Very different visions. Toady wants to do Tolkien stuff (fantasy) while the URR guy is interested in mystery/conspiracy/vaguely historical realistic stuff.

So the URR guy is very concerned with information, people and more abstract events, while Toady is more interested in objects, weird creatures and more physical events like battles.

There is no guarantee that they will understand his gigantic, mathematically complex and undocumented code.

Both Mark and Tarn have stated to not be interested in working with a team. Sometimes 1 + 1 < 2.

But they are making a book together. So that's something. :)

Why make one ultimate game when you can make several? That stuff's subjective.

Brook's Law: adding manpower to a late software development project makes it later.

The cause isn't so much lateness as being deep into the project where you pretty much need the current team to stop dev work to bring the new people up to speed.

Besides, if the OP's wishes did come true, and they teamed up to make "the ultimate game" (as opposed to a fun side project) work on Dwarf Fortress (20 years to completion) and URR (6 or 7 years from completion?) would stop.

Who the heck wants that?!
