Limit Theory: Mass Predictions Brainstorming

#1
Reading the recent dev logs has led to my desire to delve back into programming.
I have never programmed a video game and have only dealt with small projects.
Despite this, I would love to help out with Limit Theory: Mass Predictions.
I am unaware of anyone actively preparing for the LTMP mod, and since I wanted to help, I started a google doc to help with coordination/planning.
Most of its contents are just my brainstorming, but if anyone with experience can chime in, that would be amazing.

Everyone is welcome to add in their comments, or anything really.
Especially jokes, mine are bad...

EDIT:
Created a folder for anyone to check out the progress, it's like a team drive, but for cheap!
If you want to contribute, just send me a PM with your email and I'll get you edit access.

Thanks! I know we can't do much programming, but just having the design in place and some important questions answered will really help.

Also, thanks for helping me learn about programming!

What kind of retronym from the acronym for MultiPlayer is this? :P
First time I heard of "Mass Predictions"...but that doesn't mean much, because I didn't follow the history of this game as much as I'd liked... :oops:

Ergo, mass predictions.
But why "Mod"? Did Josh not plan any multiplayer? :eh:
