Last night's chat with Will Wright, creator of The Sims and SimCity, has been very busy, and many questions were answered. One of them, which was asked a few times, is when CaSIE is going to be released. As reported
that's been delayed until January. Here are some other random quotes from the chat:
Q: What inspired you ot create the sims?
A: The simulation dynamics we developed for SimAnt and the writings of Christopher Alexander (A Pattern Language).
Q: Hi Will what is your favorite Sim Game?
A: It's still the original Sims (SimEarth a close second).
Q: Why do you like robots?
A: I think robots teach us more about humans than about technology. They are in essence attempts to model human abilities and when we try to build them we learn how amazing we really are.
Q: Have you ever made any families that just accidentally happen to resemble any of your workers? If so I hope you haven't drowned them :-p
A: No comment
