comment Does over-reliance on tools imply that you are lazy?
so when no one know what an algorithm is or how to implement a data structure because they all "program" in drag and drop IDE's are they just using the right tool for the job ?

by competence I meant programming, all other skill are irrelevant except mathematics.

comment How to explain pointers to a Java/VB programmer
@Brendan @Carra i am honoured that you think my game is of equal or greater quality than WOW otherwise you would not be able to make a meaningful comparison :) bottom line id that scripting bloats the code with unnecesssary complexity, just do it right the first time not screw around so it can be done right at a later stage that may never come

@Brendan why write code to access code that is designed to write code for me ? if i wanted this kind of development experience I would use an existing engine not build one from scratch.

have no intention of having anything to do with a scripting language at all. There will never be a place for then in any project I am a part of!

that is a brilliant explanation of my question, the only problem is I wrote my question so I know what it says and don't need it paraphrased, how about and answer next time.

comment How to explain pointers to a Java/VB programmer
I gave it some thought and have decided not to redesign a 3 and a half year project just so it can use lua. adding a scripting language was a bad idea when I started, a bad idea throughout the project and is still a bad idea now.
