I am, as most of you probably already know, working on a scriptable game engine
that will allow you to make advanced games without having to learn a real
programming language. All that you have to learn is a basic like scripting
language, and behind this simple interface sits a powerful engine that takes
care of all the groundwork.
However, despite all my efforts to make it as simple as possible it is still a
scripting language which might still be daunting for some to grasp and
understand. Having followed the recent discussions on list I see that there is
a lot of interest in something like a sidescroller creation tool, which leads
me to the following question. Would you people like to see high level tools
such as a sidescroller builder that basically generates Bgt code based on a
template? You would have a pretty interface like any other high level tool, and
you would be able to adjust tons of parameters after which time you can get
your Bgt code written out in a file ready for use in the engine. This way,
people who are starting out can use these template builder things to make
something that is fairly close to what they want to create, and then as they
get more and more familiar with the workings of the language they can go in and
actually modify the game that the template program generated for them.
Any thoughts on this?
