I think that to get people to really notice/support/donate to this game it would need some sort of demo, otherwise its hard to gauge how successful it would be, if you would want to donate, If its worth improving. A lack of coders was mentioned when I made a topic. I would suggest going to forums where software is common, college forums, potential college forums such as spark notes or other sites specializing in high school to college groups to advertise for coders, biologists, whomever you need, as college kids need a job or something to hone their skills or just a hobby. If advertisement doesnt work as well switch to asking nicely.


hope this helps, also I would like to add that I was unsure whether this belonged in outreach or here.

The problem with paying people is that we need money to do that. And the trouble with donating is it means that our members need to have money. We're not so hot on that front.

But, i'm not sure we should really go down this track because then we'll have to decide how much each coder gets, and our current volunteers will feel like they are being ripped off.

I'm pretty sure our appeal, to coders, is for those who a) want to brush up on the codes that would be needed for this game, b) need a hobby, or c) coding is their hobby, not their day job.

All work on this game must be done with a budget of exactly one toenail.

However, I do agree that if we were able to make and release a prototype (I believe Bashi's working on the Skeletal tab of the OE, yes?) we would get a lot more publicity and posibly even a few more coders.

I've personally been working with a bunch of pocket lint...

You are right, though. Products = attention.

@ Raven - I seem to remember we were using C++ for something.

And thus, the thread ends.
