Procedural Generation: a total pain in the ass
In Wayfar, a planet is divided into sectors. There are 100 rooms in each sector. Each room contains resources, which are spawned by weather events, carnage, planting, what have you. I procedurally generate all of this -- and today I realize the herd (for tracking populations of animals) and foliage (for tracking populations and seeding of plants) objects must be redone to conform to new verb standards.
See my more recent posts on MXP/OLC to see how I made this less of a pain in the ass!
