i really enjoy playing hearthstone,
but i am a little bit worried.
Currently, as soon as the civilization of the town reaches 10 people and some houses, the performance drops to a bad level. the AI is permanently on 80%+ cpu load and the people are starting to stop working on stuff,
I am a little bit worried that this is because of the usage of lua for this areas.
i know lua from many other games where it was used for UI Generation and handling. but each part for stuff like AI or Core methods, the LUA got connected to C++ C# or other languages.
When i found this game, the description was that this game will offer to build big towns, fullly from scratch. But currently i am a littlle bit worried that because of the usage of LUA for the AI, the game will become problems in question of population.
I know that this game is currently in Alpha, and i know what an alpha is for. but even on an alpha, the groundcore should already be decided and as far as i see, it was decided to use LUA for the AI.
But when i check out the posssiblities of LUA, i get the impression that LUA is not able to handle a mass of popuplation like stonehearth is planned to offer.
I would be realy happy if someone could prove me wrong
