    What Major Games Have Any of You Created

    I know when I finally get the knowledge to program a major game I would like it to be a Civilization-like game. Which brought me to think what big time games have all of you created or try to re-do? I'm not talking about any tic-tac-toe or pong games, either, not to take credit away from you because I can't even do that. Also, what did you do after you created your big game? Did you allow for it to be downloaded off the net, show your source code for free, try to sell it...?

    I made an RPG/Adventure with fifteen quintillion rooms (generated, but not randomly). It started text but grew to be graphical. I also made some strange games based off some dreams my wife had... she has cool movie quality dreams.. I rarely dream at all, and when I do they are entirely too boring. *sigh*

    Frontier space game clone.. simple.. The Settlers clones.. just stuff for me to play with, or because I have an idea for a technique. I program apps professionally so I don't usually have time to do what I would really like to do with any of them. And eventually they just get deleted by accident or on purpose.

    Like everyone, I have ideas for some original stuff, and like many of us, I just dabble at it a bit at a time, adding and cutting features, spending waaaay too much time on squeezing already good FPS and technology techniques instead of actually doing anything.. but it is a lot of fun.

    Well, here is where I promote the new Allegro 4.0 library. Everything you need to make fast, easy, cross-platform games. Read more about it here. Then get my graphical installer for MSVC, Borland, or Dev-C++ (mingw) here.

    I'm curious, Justin. Can you post a zip? It won't eat up memory, will it (fifteen quintillion rooms is a heck of a lot)?

    Nope, it took up very little memory because it was based on coordinates without making the array. I'll have to look for it, its been a while and it would be on a hard drive that isn't hooked up right now.

    I will tell you how it worked though.

    [BIG EDIT] I just read my three page essay... don't really want to spam the boards... again.. Let me know if you really care and I'll e-mail the howto to ya. [/BIG EDIT]
