comment how should I design Objects around this business requirement?
I agree with that article (I had actually read the very same Scott Meyer's article against instanceOf()). For the very same reason, I am trying to come up with a better design to the problem I asked in my question.

comment What design pattern is best suitable with this context?
Effective C++ by Scott Meyers has a great article on double dispatch talking at great detail on how to implement it also!

comment how should I design Objects around this business requirement?
Please take a look at my edit. Apart from handling options and default, I'm faced with a concern: At runtime, how can I know if a given Object in variants[] is of Type LandPackageVariant or FlightPackageVariant ?

comment What skills in game development are common in other software development areas?
@espais: I hear you. Being in such a stressful state for this long time has really made me very wary of getting back into game-dev. I feel burnt-out and I'm hoping to make a switch into a related field. I just don't know what are my options for different domain/companies that are out there..

comment What skills in game development are common in other software development areas?
I am a jack-of-all trade. However, I feel that graphics and main gameplay (which relates a lot to simulation systems), are my biggest strengths. I have been advised to stay away from the movie industry for the same reason of job instability. Would you happen to know any names/companies off the top of your head where I can start searching ? It would really help me with a good starting point.

Thanks Anna. Yea, C++ is what I use. I'll lookup some of those and see if I can find something where I can use my skills. I am all game for exploring new things, which is why I am willing to take this leap of faith. I was doing some Java/Database work in the past, and I wanted to do something more challenging than that. I then made a U-turn in life and got into this trade. But, somehow I can't seem to think out of the box to see where else can I use these skills. Hopefully, with all of your help, I'll be able to make an informed decision.
