After 2nd-class involvement in 0AD in the Council of Modders as programmer and 3D artist, a pretty crazy open source engineer from the non-profit distributed individuals of worldev and the resurrected open source eco movement, started to work on no less than time travel (evolution, time continuity, (e)merge of civilizations, roads, diplomatic interactions, spread of knowledge, ...)
Since 2017 the effort is twofold: E1. Custom RGP,RTS engine E2. Compatibility layer
Almost all technological goals have been achieved in 2023. Integration of all parts and artworks still are a tremendous challenge.
Virtual Time Machine Tech
0BC is version controlled using Git in a modular repository structure and comes with a premake (E2) and cmake (E1) based build system.
It integrates with "blender" employing a Scenario Editor framework (UNIX style) mitigating several OS compatibility problems and code redundancy to reduce maintenance.
Next to Linux, Mac OS and Windows, a build for Android, especially suitable for CyanogenMod and other Android (AOSP) flavours like Unicorn, will be made available.
Since BGE is discontinued and Pyrogenesis is not made for RPG features, 0 B.C. ships a custom engine concocted over previous game projects.
The gap between Unreal Engine and both BlenderGE and Pyrogenesis and our custom engine is getting bigger and bigger due to lack of serious engine developers and the community contributing fixes upstream since Unreal is open source. Nevertheless Unreal does neither suit the time machine nor the fantasy project due to high running costs, overcomplication, maintenance and compatibility.
E2 is made publicly available on first release in consonance with licensing.
0BC Time Machine targets the educational, diplomatic and strategical aspects like in the real worlds (as known to us), where battles not have been decided by attrition warfare often.
Another important cornerstone is teaching philosophical questions the fun way to help mankind not lose its roots.
The time machine won't give answers, instead it shall get people to ask philosophical questions themselves, i.e. to become critical, investigating.
An example is the often sudden emergence of religions, most of the times based on nothing - and suddenly being spread very far mostly by warfare. From this it is hoped, that the question arises, why the world is caught in the circles of conflict, crime and inter-cultural catastophes. It must be asked, why is spreading own belief by force or peacefully not helpful for a peaceful world? We desire peace, harmony simply an epic and happy world. For that to happen we should respect each other.
The Time Machine at some point could next to simply having fun also serve the scientific community to teach ecology, history and its lessons in an effective and adventurous way.
There is no rush in assigning the following jobs but for driving this project further
This is a trust job, because there will be no control mechanisms to check work done or exert any other pressure. Therefore only highly reputed, reliably known, highly motivated world citizens will be accepted as candidates for filling these vacancies.
Like us, You should be freedom conscious and live for others and not mainly for your own benefit. Altruism needs more rewards to extend "survival of the fittest" to "survival of the fittest gentle(wo)men" - this job is exactly that. A reward. Getting an equal (!) share of worlddevelopment club, which has come out of nowhere and worked itself up into a pretty wealthy position (heaps of territory, multiple bases, debtfree, ...).
Privacy, freedom respecting GNU/Linux or BSD should be your OS of choice (ideally Arch or Void for which worlddevelopment provides simplistic bin.configuration for very slim, speedy, interchangeable systems).
Applications to the worlddevelopment email. Suitable candidates will know what this address is. Do not forget to note why you think you are a suitable honorable knight for world development castle building + references | evidence. Be verbose. What do you think about Unlicense, Creative Commons Share Alike. Elaborate about whether you see some peoples | races being worthier than others. Hint: We do have a strong opinion here. Hint 2: We are an international team.
You will be notified when your application fruits and further talks are to be undertaken.
Long live living creatures long and short :) See the world grow - and shrink.
No (time) travel without time. In world time added to sim and GUI.
The project has been split into two efforts: E1 custom engine, E2 compatibility layer
