  1. So, for all the coders out there - what some of your favorite things to code? Big features like trades/auctions - or things like quests?

  2. My favourite thing to code is something complex so I can feel proud about it.
  3. @LewisLewis What language?

  7. Breeding scripts. I like genetics. :p I'm less a fan of Wajas style picture breeding scripts.
    I also like to help others code, even though this can be ten times more frustrating than just doing it on your own.
  8. Battle systems.
  9. I absolutely love posting layouts. CSS is so much fun to play around with and you can't determine whether or not it's a good layout until your actually look at the final result and start tweaking it.

    Other than that, little Java projects are quite fun, and surprisingly, my engineering course got me to enjoy MATLAB (a programming language based entirely on matrix operations).
  10. My favorite thing to code, oddly, is mathematical formulas. I just love being able to see math in the works with something as simple as a petsite. <<----Nerd...lol
  11. @InnitInnit - MATLAB? Really? I hated that thing! Had to use it two years ago...and started skipping class, since it wasn't examined, and was only every taught in the class =P
    But we only used it for things that MS Excel could do with a single formula, so that's probably why I hated learning it - it served no purpose for me.
    I know it is capable of doing things that Excel can't do though, so I understand why other people would want to use it.
    And you can make it look prettier.
    But for me, Excel done what I needed, so I didn't feel like putting in the extra effort of learning something else =P

  12. Well it was boring at first when we were just learning how to use it for basic operations, but by the end we were modelling a rocket launch and landing. There was so much to it and it was quite fun, very mathematical and required lots of thinking. We were assessed on in though, so we couldn't skip classes!

  13. Okay, I can understand how that would be interesting, I'd like to do something like that!
    All we used it for was matrix multiplications, which can be done on excel without any prior setting up.
    I now understand why you enjoyed it more than me then! Think I picked the wrong course... =P
