Planet Zoo - the wonderful world of simulation games
« on: November 05, 2019, 03:27 PM »
The trailers for the new zoo simulation game "Planet Zoo" are stunning... To see how far we have come in a few decades with these simulation games is draw dropping. 





And the icing on the cake is how involved people are in taking this sandbox tool and creating interesting things with it.. This combination of programmers creating tools that other people then take and create with is one of the greatest things.

Similarly amazing in different ways are the videos of Microsoft's new flight simulator engine:




Think about where flight simulators were when I started programming:


It's just mind boggling what an amazing age we are living in and to imagine the future of simulations.

So where does all this leave us? In a vicious cycle, where the more people grind out the Big Three, the lower their value becomes, and the more of them people need to grind to afford anything else.
