Limit Theory: Mass Predictions Brainstorming

The S&M crowd is getting naughty with the game files.

Limit Theory: Mass Predictions Brainstorming

Postby Kekasi » Wed Mar 29, 2017 3:01 pm

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.

I suppose we can't really do much actual programming until we have more specifics about the game, but I'm happy to contribute! :thumbup:

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!

Mass Predictions?

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:

I think it's kind of poetic. The best netcode does the most with the least data. To do this perfectly, you have to have some kind of predictive power. And with lots of people (as there hopefully will be), you have to make great use of predictive power.
Ergo, mass predictions.

But why "Mod"? Did Josh not plan any multiplayer? :eh:

No. He really didn't. Very certain. :ghost:

Hmm...I think you might be mistaken. I'm really, REALLY sure he wanted to implement that. 8-)

Saying he wanted to do it isn't gonna suddenly make him do it, you know :ghost:

I've heard of some weird hypotheses that the universe is shaped by the thoughts of individuals.
So the more people think that something is the way they think it is, the more the universe conforms to those thoughts :ghost:
