Working on Ancient Savo. I'd like the player to have more detailed feedback on how the (fish)traps are doing. But at the moment the fish-trap checking code is rather simple; every trap has the same probability of catching fish, no matter the trap placement. To check a trap it always takes 30 minutes. And the code just operates on "number of traps checked", so it is totally ignorant of which trap yields what. This is just a quick and dirty piece of code I once wrote to get ahead with building the other aspects of the game. And now the question is how thoroughly I'm going to rewrite this. For fields I have already planned the simulation to be rather detailed; it should make a difference if a field is on a south or north-facing slope, lowlands or uphill, etc. So I'm probably going to take the same route with the traps; determining the success rate based on location, and keeping a record of fish caught per trap. It is going to take some time to code, but this is what I love; simulating the details, and then having a realistic-enough outcome flow naturally out of the simulation.
