    planning and organizing for bigger projects

    as my game projects become bigger i find im having trouble planning them out well and keeping them organized. what kind of sytems do you guys use for keeping your code organized, like how do you split it into seperate files and what do you put into each seperate file. Any suggestions are appreciated. thanks

    Honestly, I just use a pen and a notebook.

    I try my best to plan out the basic scheme of things first then expound on that as I work my way through the mechanics of the game. Once I get the basics fleshed out I start to look for areas that are redundant and find generic solutions to accomplish the tasks.
